CCG, funny you should bring up the whole 'kid' thing. I was just going to post that if I hear anymore about lactating, diapers, diaper rash, baby fat, or breast pumps....I was going to SCREAM!!
I am SO not a baby person. I love kids, obviously for what I do for a living...but I never had the desire to have any of my own. I always felt my calling was with animals...of any kind.
I have always felt that people think I am the 'weird one' because I don't/didn't want any. (I'm too old, in my opinon to start!
) My one colleague, who is a male, is working on #3. He is as bad as the young girls who are just popping them out....yesterday it was all about the great diaper deal he got!
When they first got pregnant, he used to argue with me about having/not having kids. He would argue endlessly that I MUST have some 'motherly feelings inside' and that it's just not right to NOT have one. Prior to that, he was 'so understanding'.....at first, it made me wonder if it wasn't his wife who was offended b/c she wholeheartly believes EVERYONE should have kids....MANY, many kids....but I think it's the two of them who can't 'just imagine' their lives W/O kids.....I can't imagine mine WITH! I'm perfectly happy kidless!
I try to be understanding and 'listen'.....but there are SO many now that I work with having or going to have....I'm at my wits end!
More reason to eat in my room!
Our 'outside of work' friends, for the most part didn't have any kids, or they are all grown up...so we are all on the same page of what we do now outside of work.......guess that's why you have outside of work friends!
I'm in definite need of hanging out with non-work people!! LOL SO looking forward to break. I don't believe I said, but we are celebrating differently this year. The whole group of us who celelbrate together are heading to a nearby state park. Some are renting cabins, others of us are getting rooms in the resort! We are all bringing our 'traditional fixings' we are known for...my deviled eggs, and pecan pumpkin pie......but for the main meal there will be a buffett at the resort. I think I will cook up a turkey breast to have some 'left overs'. I too enjoy a good turkey sandwich with mayo and lettuce!
Skies look clear here for a bit. May try to sneak in a chilly quick ride this morning! Ride strong everyone!
