My niece has finally arrived! Annabelle Morgan made her appearance at 4am this morning - give or take a minute or two - 6lbs 6 0z.. I saw her a few hours ago, and of course - she's beautiful, if I do say so myself!
Speaking of babies....I've still got the babysitter blues. I've got some wonderful temps at the moment, but I'm really stressing over not having someone consistent with structure at home. My daughter is at such a critical age, it's very important to me that life at home is "normal" again when I'm not there. So - that being said, I thought I found a great permanent fit. A nice older woman, definitely a "Nana". When I interviewed her, she never mentioned certain financial demands she had (e.g. filling her 8 cylindar truck once a week, paid vacation in the area of 4 weeks, paid holidays, sick days, etc...) Um, might have been nice to mention. You know what? My boss doesn't fill my tank over and above my salary. And by the way - I'm not cheap in my paying of my caregivers. So. I almost died when I spoke with her today to offer her the position. If you're a contract employee - and being paid in such a manner (read between the lines here, CASH), thanks alot for trying to milk what boils down to an extra $4.00 an hour out of me (read again - CASH). The nerve. There's more to it than that, but I don't really feel like writing a bit longer than I'm actually writing at the moment. I'll revisit this again, I'm sure.
The wedding was a blast - love to all my girlfriends! And Jenn is the one who had the baby I wrote about in my earlier post. He's doing better and getting stronger every day, and it was awesome to have her out with us having fun.
