Oh, I'm out of the corporate world, thank God. I had my fill for 4 years. It got to the point I would come home crying almost every night. I work at the University of Florida now in the dean's office for the College of Ag. So really I work for the state. I've been there almost 2 years and still love it. I'm secretary for one of the Associate Deans so I help with planning events and there's a lot of paperwork involved too - some good like scholarship awards, some not so good like probation letters. The people I work with are just good people. I'll get 3 months off work for leave. UF allows up to 6 months, guaranteeing you can keep your job, but I don't have that much leave time accrued and the bills aren't going to stop when baby comes. My boss loves babies and has already offered me her office to pump in and her mini fridge to store my milk in when I get back. I really couldn't ask for a better job.

I'm just feeling kinda crummy this afternoon. The cramping started and hasn't really let up, and I've had a headache all afternoon. I just feel very blah. I left work a few minutes early so I could catch the early bus instead of waiting another half hour. Really wasn't up to that today. I hate reduced schedule when classes aren't in session. Still beats paying for gas, fighting traffic every day and dealing with parking tho.

Hope all the new mamas are enjoying your new little ones. I can't believe we're halfway through august now! Anyone know how many babies we've had so far?

Re: August 13th weekly chat

don't worry, the EPO is not going to do anything except make it all work better. not going to put you into labor b4 your body is ready, by any means. but it is great stuff.

Apparently you just need to come to Gainesville and eat the Shrimp Quesadillas at Las Margaritas. It was in the paper yesterday that several women have gone into labor within 24hours of eating the quesadillas! http://www.gainesville.com/article/2...CLES/120819691 If I'm still in labor on Labor Day weekend I'll be going there. lol.
