Maternity Leave – Day 13

190.5 pounds and 17 days until my due date.

I was forcefully licked out of bed at 8:30am. It appears that my husband had left for work without feeding the animals or in hindsight they may have been working me for seconds.

As I fed them, I thought about their daily lives and how they seem so content on lounging around the house, day after day – every day.  Quickly realizing that I was starting to compare my life to the life of a hairless cat and a senior citizen Pekingese, I decided to get my butt in gear and get ready to leave the house for the day.

By 10:45am I had picked up the house and got myself ready for the day. Since I had not been to the office in almost two weeks, it felt like it was time for a drive by, and I had high hopes I could convince a few co-workers to go to lunch.
