Ugh, yesterday was insanely long [hence the no posting]. What should have been a slightly longer than usual first day back after a long weekend of entertaining my dad, turned into ridiculously long day instead. Necessary, for reasons beyond our control [courier delays] but damned long.
Now, I’m kinda cranky. I’m just tired and looking forward to a long day tomorrow and the possibility of being called in on Saturday. Right now, I’ve emails to write, emails to follow up on [which, due to crankiness, I won’t do tonight] and sleep to search for. I’ve already made up with the cat and dog for not spending time with them last night. So, I think that, tonight, sleep wins.
I think that several of the women at work are more anxious to find out babyQ’s gender than Mr.Q and I are. I mean, yes we absolutely want to know, otherwise we wouldn’t have asked, but it is what it is and all knowing does is slant our naming choices. It doesn’t really change anything for us, aside from allowing us to drop the “it” pronoun [which just seems rather rude, really, even for an unborn fetus].
I’m getting kicked with a little more frequency and force now, so perhaps it’s getting sick of “it” too.
