13 Days to Go

library-454And I totally blew it.  I’m so bummed.  I didn’t get my post for the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway day up in time.  I guess that’s the kind of stuff that happens when you’re expecting a baby, trying to deal with an insurance company to get your car repaired, tying up loose ends in your last couple of days at work and just generally trying to stay sane.  But I’m still bummed.  I thought about doing it anyway a little later in the day but still never got around to doing that either.  Oh well, next time.  I think it’s going to be the purple garland up for grabs.  If I can ever get my act together.  

In the meantime, I’m still trying to wrap things up at work.  I just can’t seem to catch a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel.  I can’t seem to close any of the files completely.  I can only get them pretty close to closed which isn’t really helpful to the person taking my place.  I am however done with court appearances.  It was hard to stop myself from taking my maternity suit, crumpling it into a ball and stuffing it into the back of my closet.  I never want to see it again.  There was actually a moment today when I thought I was surely stuck inside it.  I figured it out but the solution was extremely inconvenient.

We’re still waiting for word on our car.  Apparently the fuel pump failed after we were hit from the back which doesn’t seem that strange to me since the fuel pump is apparently located at the rear of the vehicle.  Of course, the car is still sitting at the garage because our insurance adjuster is… on vacation.  Isn’t that awesome?  Then the person who was assigned to take over was completely unresponsive.  After another call to Geico I’ve now been given a number for a supervisor.  I’ll try again tomorrow because doing all the driving is a lot of work.  Right now I’m soothing myself by watching Martha make holiday cookies and thumbing through the new book that Danielle gave me for my birthday.  I can practically smell the spice cookies.  It’s almost time for pfefferneuse!

Wish my luck tomorrow.  I’ll be back at the hospital for follow up in the morning and then back to work to continue my efforts at seamlessly extricating myself.
