Your mom is stuck at home with a fever today :( I think this is largely in part to the random change of weather we've been having in New York. One day it's in the 50's...then it's raining...then it's 80 degrees - all in one week. I felt a sore throat coming on at work yesterday, so I knew it was coming.
Yesterday was strange - my mood changed frequently throughout the day just like the weather has been. At the top of the morning I was freaking out about your arrival as I do quite often. My biggest fear as your mother is that I won' t be able to give you the life that you deserve. I always worry about how I'm going to be able to provide you with the best life possible and sometimes it gets the best of me. Then I received two phone calls from the hospital wanting to know what was going on with my insurance - or rather lack there of. I found out I was pregnant about 2 weeks after starting my new job and they don't offer insurance until after 6 months. Daddys will kick in sooner than mine but as of now all my visit bills are outstanding and they wanted to know how I would be paying. They've told me about a program that I can apply for that will help us out - but nonetheless, it added to my stress.
Things got a little better when I got on the phone with one of my credit card companies - most people aren't happy when they call, but I was looking forward to closing this chapter. After a few minutes of discussion, they decided that they would settle with me for a reasonable amount that will take me only 3 short payments. I'm going to be so excited on the day that I make that last payment. My goal is to be debt-free by the time you arrive - well, I'll still have my ridiculous amount to pay back in student loans but I'm working hard to clear everything else up.
Towards the end of the work day at our town hall meeting, I was presented with the TOP SALES AGENT OF WEEK AWARD. This is the 2nd time I've won it since starting this job! Although it's not that serious and just a certificate, it brightened up my day a little. I felt even better when after the meeting I realized that I only had 15 minutes of left of the work day :)
Once I got home I really started feeling sick and went to bed early only to wake up with a fever and now I'm watching CSI!
I supposed it's time to roll out of bed now - seems like you're ready to eat :)
