29 cent rage
Jim and I live around the corner from one of several Frozen Custards.  This has been slightly detrimental to my attempt to lose baby weight.  Regardless, I find it nearly impossible not to stop there...well...several times a week for a vanilla coke.  The past two times I have gone, I have been helped by a very...interesting girl.  Sunday I stopped to get my vanilla coke and a cherry coke for Jim.  The total was $4.06.  I gave the girl a ten and a dime.  Easy math, right?  My change should have been $6.04.  The girl handed me $6.00 and no change.  Now I know that it was only four pennies, but it really bothered me.  I decided to let it go.  Then yesterday, I went with my mom an bought three flavored cokes.  One each for her, me and Jim.  The total was $5.01.  This time I gave the same girl my  debit card.  She charged my card $5.26.  There is a sign on the drive-thru window stating that there is a 25 cent fee for all charges UNDER $5.00.  It was $5.01 and she charged me the extra 25 cents.  I let it go...again...but I'm really bothered by that girl.  I don't care if it's 29 cents.


I said that just for you, Allison.

Stuff and stuff
-I have become slightly addicted to YooHoo.
-My child wants to eat constantly.  Like every hour.
-I need to see a chiropractor.  Steve, you're too far away.
-Canadan and his new wife will be in town this Thursday through Sunday.  Woot!
-Aimee and I might have some much needed girl-time this coming Saturday.
-My May 1st paycheck is going to be around $5.00.  Yay for un-paid maternity leave.
-Eli is asleep so I must take advantage of it and clean.  

Bye for now.

It' been about two weeks now since Eli came along.  Physically, I'm starting to feel a lot better.  I never thought I'd be thankful to be able to poo without it virtually killing me.  And I've gotten over the hump with nursing as well.  It still doesn't feel good, but it's not constantly painful.  Speaking of which, I've already had to start supplementing with formula.  My very large child has a very large appetite.  I can't keep up.  Actually, it's kind of nice that he's taking it well already.  That means Jim can feed him at least once a day, and I can...well...shower.

Emotionally, I've had a bit of a rough road.  I think I'm getting past the "baby blues" now, but it's  been a ride.  I know it's all chemical; my hormones are trying to get back to normal.  And Jim's gone on two trips in the two weeks we've been back, which has made it more challenging, but he's back tomorrow.  Hopefully my sanity will return soon as well.

Having said all that, I am absolutely in love with my child.  He's perfect.

Oh, and I turned 29 this past Monday.  The b-day kind of slipped through the cracks this year, but I had a nice dinner out with my hubby and new baby.  Woot.
