I Found a JOB!!!

I must say that I am so very excited to have found a new job in just one day of job searching. I mean I know that serving is not the hardest job to find, but it just reassures me that I made the right decision by quitting my previous job. It is so strange for me to just up and quit a job like I did this week, but at 25 weeks pregnant, I have done some things that are unlike me. I called the hiring manager today and as soon as he answered he asked when I could start!! YAY! The restaraunt I will be working at is called Greyhound Tavern, and the owner is affiliated with the owners of Merrick. I am so excited, and anxious to begin serving again. I always enjoyed it. My quest for tomorrow is to find white button up shirts that still fit me, and pray that I can still fit in my black pants. I have to tell you a funny story about filling out the applications yesturday. A question on one of the applications was, which is worse ignorance or apathy. I froze, and I could not for the life of me remember what apathy meant. I texted Nick and one of my friends in a frenzy to find out the meaning before the manager noticed how long it was taking me. Finally the manager walked away for a minute, and I called Nick and made him give me the definition in a hurry. My final answer was apathy. Oh the pregnancy brain.

I would also like to include a list of things I have learned about myself/pregnancy up to week 25

1. Never ever ever come between a pregnant lady and her food. I have had some hysterical crying fits over waiting for food, and I just have to look back at them and laugh.

2. I do not cry as much as I used to. In the past I would cry when I was angry, sad etc. However, now I just get very mad and aggrevated. The tiny things can set me off. (I hope this changes and that I go back to crying after the baby comes. I do not like being angry and mean).

3. My body is no longer my own. I feel as though I am living just so Caleb can grow and come into the world healthy. Everything is all about him.

4. Baby furniture is very expensive and needs to be sold in more stores.

5. I always have a million questions to ask my doctor, but at every visit I forget. I definetely feel as though I am so dumb sometimes I feel like.

6. I have to take time in the day to lay back and relax. This past weekend I did not take that time, and I truly felt as though my belly was going to burst if I tried to stand up straight.

7. You get out of doing a lot of things because "you're pregnant". This I secretly enjoy. We are moving at the end of June, and I know this will come in handy at that time.

8. My husband is amazing. He is so willing to put up with my hormones, my cravings, and my constant talk about the baby. I love him so much, and I am so blessed.

9. Feeling the baby move is the most amazing feeling in the entire world. Also, watching Nick's face when he feels the baby makes me smile. Those are my favorite moments of the day.

10. I think about Caleb at least every 5 minutes within a day. He consumes all of my thoughts, and I can not wait to hold him.

11. I enjoy writing to Caleb in the journal I am making for him. I have told him so much about my past, how I am feeling in the pregnancy, what is going on in life etc. This is all in hopes that he will understand who I am and where I am coming from.

12. August could not come soon enough. 9 months is a long time to wait to meet someone you are madly in love with. However, I want to make it to August so that he will be healthy and strong.

Congrats on the job and I just have to tell you that the Greyhound is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE place to eat. My husband is from Erlanger and we lived there the first year we were married. Anyway, I really hope we move back to that area some day. I loved it! Most of our friends live in Independence too.
