[Comments] (4) : Things have been very busy at work this week so I haven't really had time to update. Monday and Tuesday I spent with Jamie at CHA, checking out all the new scrapbooking goodies and doing free make-and-takes. I didn't make as many things as last year, but maybe I was just more selective, because I like my projects more. Also, Jamie has a friend who works for one of the companies and gave each of us a LOT of freebies - maybe around $150 worth.

I had a lot of fun, I didn't get too tired, and it was nice to get to spend the time with Jamie - I miss seeing her every Sunday!

My three-day work week sped by, and I am sooo ready for the weekend. I only have two more weeks of work left, but I am getting more exhausted by the day. Noelle is throwing me a shower tomorrow, and John and I are planning to go to IKEA to buy a changing table and new bedding (for us).

I had a doctor appointment yesterday (have to start going every week now). The good news is I only gained 2 pounds! The bad news is that I was late because I had to finish Payroll. I have to pay to park in the office's parking lot, so I always look for a spot on the street first. It's a bit of a walk, but it saves me $1.50. Well, as cheap as I am, I also hate being late. Yesterday, I guess I learned what is more important to me, being thrifty, or being on time. What do you think?

I hate paying for parking. It cost me a dollar to park too but there were no spots to look for on the street. Plus when you are that pregnant, you can't be walking far otherwise you are tired the rest of the day. I get so stressed out when I am late, I would just rather spend the money.

yay for free stuff.

I am sorry I always made you late when we were in HS.

Normally I'd say I'd rather pay than be late. But with Dr. Ricardo's inconsiderate "here, wait in my waiting room for 55 minutes" stance on pre-natal appointments, I'd rather be a cheapskate. That's karma.

I did indeed end up paying the $1.50. I only have to wait to see him when John comes...

Thanks for apologizing Rachie. I forgive you.
