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:
