I SHOULD HAVE BEEN BORN RICH......

Today I started my FML.... or maternity leave. I am feeling a little uncertain about all this. With each step TAKEN out of the building towards my car I felt like I was walking away from my life raft. It is scary to think that for 90+ days I will try to make it financially on the four weeks of vacation and the measly savings I have gathered along this wait. I hate being frugal. I think I should have been born rich.

Happily, I can say, 4 more sleeps!!!!

I think it's incredible the amount of time you are taking off to be with your daughter. This is irreplaceable time and bonding. Congrats and enjoy your trip!

I should have been born rich, too! Enjoy your time off! See you soon (if your home when I drop those bows off).

Wow - miss your blog for a day or two and look at the update! I can't believe that you are leaving for China so soon. Try to enjoy your time in Beijing (it's hard not to just be counting down the days to your daughter!)

Hang on tight, because the ride is about to get really WILD! In a VERY good way! Have a wonderful trip, I can't wait to read more updates!!

Four more sleeps? Are you sure you will sleep? Hee hee. I was on such an adrenaline high that last week, I nested from midnight to four every "sleep." ;)

4 more sleeps!!!! WooHoo! Money is not as important as you think, I promise. I left my 16 yr job on Dec 19th and we've lived on unemployment since then. Some tight days and things we can't do, but we are both really happier now and not stress anymore! That pretty baby will fill you with so much joy that you won't miss a beat! Praying for you in TN!
