Just Another Work Day

Just a quick post to keep me in the game.  I was in the country visiting my Mom last weekend and have been really busy since I got back.  My birthday was yesterday and I was on call which means I stay home.  The Man kicked in gear and bought flowers, steaks and a crazy chocolate birthday cake.  The cake was totally a joke since I really don't eat sweets.  He actually bought it for him and our son!  They proceeded to put candles on it, turn off the lights and sung Happy birthday!  Overall a pretty good evening for my 54th birthday.

This week I also went through my first facebook delivery.  A friend of mine was at the hospital waiting for her first grandchild to be born.  Her poor daughter was in labor for almost 24 hrs.  They finally determined a C section was the only way to go.  Well, out came a 9 1/2 lb baby boy.  Ladies, this is a very small young lady..........I ask you.  Why the hell didn't the Dr. know the size of that baby?  I would already be looking for another OBGYN.

Well, guess I'm going to run now.  I know my day tomorrow is going to be vicious!!

Have a good week  and I hope to be back to normal soon.  (the first step for me is to determine what normal is.  Oh, why bother!!)

Linking up with all my favorites.  Just a little late this week.

Jacket:  Eddie Bauer, thrifted $2.50

  5. Happy birthday! Those jeans look awesome! My mom just had her 54th birthday a couple of days ago, you're in good company!

    Also, I had a good friend deliver a 10 pound baby boy three years ago - she was in labor over 36 hours and didn't end up in a C-section, but they swore they didn't know he was as big as he was either. She found a new OB for baby number 2. Seriously.
