Couldn't sleep...

Friday, April 24, 2009

I woke up around 5am (a little over 2h ago) and haven't been able to get back to sleep. Which sucks because I wont leave for the library until a quarter of 10am this morning. I'd really hoped to get some extra zzz's this morning! I stayed in bed until 6:30 but then it just became so pointless.

When I logged in, I noticed that my birthday post for Alexander was saved and not published last night. What's up with that, Blogger??? So, took care of that and my email. I'm so ready to do SOMETHING. I just dont know what. Maybe eat... That seems to be a top priority these days...

Tuesday night, I had my final board meeting for work. When I gave the board my resignation, it was so quiet. And, as the County librarian tried desperately to reassure them that she would rehire my position and all would be well, some fistacuffs broke out. A side effect of stress, no doubt, but it was a heated evening. I was glad when it was over and I came home to a delicious potato-crusted cod dinner, lovingly prepared by my hubby.

Yesterday afternoon, I had my last departmental meeting for the main library and branches. My boss brought me flowers and everyone had signed a beautiful card. It was very unexpected and so nice. The flowers are daffodils, sweet peas, and hydrangas in a square green vase that will be so lovely in the nursery (which is painted a shade of green). Truly, such a sweet gesture. After the meeting, since it is the last time I will be at the main library (at least, it is the last time I plan to be there for a few months!), I ended up there for almost 2 hours saying good-bye to the staff! (There are about 70 people who work at the main branch, although I didn't visit with all 70, LOL). People are very excited, and I had several people tell me they were praying for us, including adding us to their prayer lists. Very sweet. They all made me promise to visit around Thanksgiving/Christmas with babies in tow. God, I hope I didn't lie to them all when I said that I would. It's a promise I desperately want to keep.

Today, my entire afternoon is filled with interviews as I try to replace one my staff whose last day is Tuesday. I have 5 scheduled in 5 hours. Plus another on Monday. I hope that someone is worthwhile! Of 50+ resumes, I responded to about 15, and of those, I have 6 interviews. Eek...

Well, perhaps I will go cuddle up to my husband and try to convince him to give me an early morning backrub... :)

Sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you! I'm glad things are progressing and soon you will be able to relax at home and take care of yourself and your beautiful babies!

That was sweet of your job to give you the flowers. I know you were dreading teling everyone, but I'm sure you will be at peace at home resting and baking your little ones.

Michele,

What happened in the Board room? Sounds scary. :)

The flowers sound beautiful. I absolutely love hydrangea.

I've always said that all the restless nights and peeing every ten minutes night or day prepares our minds and bodies for the demands of a newborn. :) Sounds like you'll be ready.

I'm so happy some of your stress is lifting.

Peace, my friend.

That must have been an interesting meeting. It sounds like you will really be missed. I'm thinking about you and am hoping with all my might that you can keep your promise. Hugs.
