Enough is Enough...

I've quit my job. I'm not usually the type to give up on anything, but I've simply had enough. Since the redundancies (lay off's) in February things have been a bit frantic/depressing at work. Things just aren't the same without the people that were let go and the workload in my department has increased significantly. Once I found out we were pregnant I did my best to not let myself get stressed at work but it was proving to be more and more difficult. Then Danielle (a girl I worked with and really really liked/appreciated) put her notice in, as she is moving back to Inverness (about an hour or so away). I asked multiple times, and e-mailed too, but got no response as to whether they were going to replace her. If they didn't, that would leave just Robert and I in the admin department and Vicky in reception. We were already struggling with the three of us in admin and one in reception, as we used to have 9 in our department! PLUS they have started to have Robert do payroll on Mondays and Tuesdays which causes even more work to be passed on to me. On top of this, I was called into a meeting where I was repremanded for being late to work and notes were made of every time I had ever been late (including 3-4 minutes!!!!). I asked if they counted the (more often than not) times when I only took a 20 minute long lunch instead of my hour, or the times that I stayed late (again... pretty frequent) and was told that extra time didn't matter because I was lowering the morale of the company by being late. LOL! I put my notice in the next day and haven't looked back since. My last day at work is Thursday (the 2nd) and I can't wait. I'm really looking forward to preparing for the baby and being a housewife again.

On a happier note... we will get to see our baby on our first ultrasound on the 2nd of July as well and we can't wait!!! We are so stinking excited about this baby and can't wait to actually "see" it! So far the pregnancy has been good, and I haven't really been sick. I've been a little queasy in the mornings and I've been UBER tired, but other than that the only difference that I've noticed is my growing belly. Yes, I am showing already. When Nic gets back from Massachusetts (for the MATE competition, which I didn't go to after all), I'll have him take a picture and I'll post it up here. Everyone keeps joking (I hope!) that we are having twins or multiples.... I think it's pretty funny. Nic keeps saying he thinks so too because of how much I'm showing already. I'm only 11 1/2 weeks and I can't fit into ANY of my old clothes now. Lol.

Anyway, while Nic is out of town I've picked up a quick Jodi Picoult book to read, so I'm going to go so I can finish it before he gets home. I hope you all are doing well!
