Maternity Leave

I have officially been on maternity leave for one week and I have to admit, while I love being at home with the baby, I am a tad bit bored! Partly because until a few days ago, I really didn't feel well enough to do a whole heck of a lot. The main thing I had to do last week was finish my Ethics paper, so that's pretty much all I did when I had time. Now that's done. The hubby is holding me to that 2 weeks of no driving after the baby that the Doctor advised...personally, I think it's silly...why can't I drive? I am looking forward to getting in some workouts, but I know I'm not quite ready for that yet. The kiddo and I have been taking little walks to the mailbox in the afternoons, but that's about it.

So, in my boredom I have discovered once again that I hate daytime TV. I love watching Ellen, but I can no longer tolerate the soap I used to watch in college. I have watched the last few episodes of The Hills, so I'm finally all caught up with that. Speaking of The Hills, it looks like Heidi is pulling a Lauren and throwing away a great career opportunity for a loser guy. What is it with those girls, anyway? Am I the only 30-something who actually cares? The preview for the next season looks like it's going to get really good!

So now, I have 4 episodes of ER that I still need to watch. After that, I'll need to find out where all my books are packed, because I have quite a few to choose from for some leisurely reading before the summer session of school begins. After school starts, I have a feeling that between that and the little bit of work I am doing from home, my maternity leave will fly by faster than I'd like.

Of course, it is fun when the baby is awake. I love to watch the little faces he makes! Here's the latest pic of him:

Awww Christy, he is just precious!! Enjoy the break, well kind of I am sure the little one keeps you busy when he is not sleeping. The workouts will still be there. Just chill :-)
The Hill, Heidi is such a loser. I mean what a great job she was a bout to have. When she got on the private jet. I was like that is living girly go get it! Then Spencer ugh! is it me or does the show seem like a little more fake here lately. The new season looks juicy new guys on the scene..LOL!

Take care, and kick up your feet and RELAX.

He's such a cutie!

Nah, I'm a 30-something who also watches The Hills. I can't believe Heidi's getting back with Spencer. He's such a slimeball.

He is adorable! I would love to have some time off, so enjoy it - even if it is a bit boring! I got hooked on Cash Cab (can't remember what channel it was on) when I was recooping from gall bladder surgery a couple of years ago. I can't stand daytime tv though.

I'm sure Bravo will replay lots of episodes of Top Chef during the day which is always entertaining.

Didn't care for this season of The Hills. Like Viv, I thought this season seemed waaay fake. But yeah, read about the Heidi thing and I thought that was pretty stupid.
