All I Want for Christmas Is You
So I've been listening to Christmas music on and off for weeks now, and one of my favorite Christmas songs (which is so silly) is Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You. So that is now stuck in my head, and therefore gets to be the title for my post today.
Things are really slow around here. My boss and the other girl in the recruiting department are gone for the holidays, so it's just me here holding down the fort. I finished up my last real task that needed to be done (mailing out the holiday cards/calendars to our recruits), and now I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to do with myself for the rest of the day. Before I left yesterday, my boss told me that if it was slow today and nothing was going on, that I should just go home and not worry about it because we work hard other times of the year so I deserve it. But I always feel guilty! I do have a work laptop that I could bring home and do virtually the same thing from home that I'm doing here (which is just sitting here waiting to see if any e-mails come in that need to be answered and surfing the net). But still....hmm maybe I'll get up enough nerve and leave at 1 after a half day of work.
I have Friday and Monday off for the holidays so that will be nice, and my parents and grandmother arrive from Florida tonight to spend the long weekend with us. Hopefully all will go well! ;) I love my parents and miss them, and it's especially weird since they are so far away when I'm pregnant. But my mother is a lot to handle, and I can only take her in small doses. I have noticed though that she is MUCH better when she is out here in my territory than when we go to Florida so maybe I'll have to convince them to come out here more often rather than going there. Besides they can afford the plane tickets much better than we can! :)
On Tuesday morning before I come in to work, we are going to the doctor's office to have a 3d/4d sonogram. I can't wait! It's our Christmas present to our parents, and they are all coming with us and then we got them frames to put the pictures in afterwards. I hope we can get some good ones of little Cooper! :) I'll try to post some next week.
Other than that, our weekend will be pretty low key. Saturday night we are going to a yummy dinner in Fort Worth and then going to look at Christmas lights. Sunday we'll have lunch/dinner at Austin's parents' house after opening gifts and enjoying Christmas morning in our apartment. It's kind of weird because this is the first Christmas that Austin and I have been together in Texas (last year we were all in Florida and before that we had Christmas separately when we were dating/engaged). In fact, it's the first time I've EVER had Christmas out here even though I've lived out here over 8 years! So it will be nice to wake up in my own place on Christmas morning and not have to pick something out of my suitcase to wear for the day! LOL Monday, I think we're going to take my parents by our house and measure the windows for the blinds we want to order and show them how it looks now that it is actually a house and not a bunch of boards any more! :)
Well, I'm sure my post wasn't super exciting, but that might just be how it is these days! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a merry Christmas! I'll check back in probably on Tuesday after the doctor's appointment. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! :)
