The night that Jon and I committed to each other, he stayed over *wink wink*…
Nothing quite like making up after.
A few days later I went back to work. I dreaded bumping into Constance in the hallways.
Luckily, my boss Luke was happy that I had completed my work assignment regarding Constance. He gave me some more responsibility and said a promotion was on the cards.
For some reason Constance had said nothing. I maintained a “professional” relationship with the vixen at work, even though I was tempted to scratch her eyes out.
But that would get me fired now wouldn’t it. *Tsk tsk Morti, you must think with your brains not your venom*
I was barely back at work, just getting into the routine of things again when I started feeling naseous in the mornings. Could I be pregnant again?
The thought was a little daunting. I was still so exhausted with Maxi, but the thought of sharing another child with Jon was also most romantic. Fine it wasn’t the ideal set up, he wasn’t living with me or anything, but he was my boo. **sigh**
I bought a pregnancy test on the way home and waited anxiously the next morning for the result. Sure as squirrels eat nuts, it was positive. I was so excited!! I grabbed Maxi and told her she was going to be a big sister!! She burped… I think that was positive??
Luke looked at me as if I was the baby-making factory from the Garden of Eden when he found out that I was pregnant again.
“Again??” Was his puzzled remark. *Lol* I guess he was mad because his hardest working drone.. oops I meant employee would be off work again for a while.
Luckily he sent me on maternity leave with a promotion, isn’t that sweet??
But this was a perfect opportunity to work on my garden some more and spend time with my Maxi. Jon was unfortunately touring again, so I would not get to see much of him. However he was ecstatic about being a daddy again.
There were other comforts however, like indulging in a bowl of cold cereal (yes I had managed to buy an el~cheapo fridge) on my toilet as I had no dining room table or chairs.
Maxi was very ill over her birthday, so we could not have a party. I promised her that her next one would be spectacular. She gurgled at me as I rocked her to and fro. When she did age up, I had to giggle. *LOL*
She did not have a single stitch of hair on her head, which surprised me since my hair was thick and dad had those wonderful shiny locks that I loved to run my fingers through. *Sheesh Morticia get a hold of yourself*
*Hmm, I wonder if whoever reads this one day will think its weird that I talk to myself while “narrating” my life?*
YES! as you can see, I still had not managed to paint those confounded grey walls in the kitchen! I swore I would do it before I went into labour again. Didn’t want a repeat of last time, that was for sure.
With the bonus from my promotion I bought windows, kitchen counters, a book shelf and decorated the walls. Oh wait I forgot, I managed to get LIGHTS!! *does jig of joy*
At least I would not have to eat instant meals out of the fridge anymore. Fine… there was no stove yet, but anything was better than cold canned soup, cereal and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
I got over excited with decorating. I knew I had forgotten to buy something.. but what was it?? Hmmm…
You can see my counters and my lovely kitchen tiles in this shot.
Ooo, look there is me being industrious. Isn’t that the perfect image of domestic bliss?
