I wish my office at work looked like this...
maybe like this picture below
Well anyways it doesn't :( LOL!
Anyways, I'm still working up until the day I go in labor. I planned it like that but I guess by the end of this week (at the doctor's appointment), I should know more of what my plans are since I am due Thursday! I keep having all the signs of going into labor but I think Emma has her own plans:) And at this point I'm not complaining just SUPER anxious to meet her!
Well I always have a fear when I go away from work for a period of time (vacation, sick time, or anything) that I'm going to come back and everything is going to be different! This is honestly something that I shouldnt be worried about but I cant help it! Before we left for Christmas Break (yes, we get Christmas Break...since I work at a university), my office mate got a promotion and she moved to her own office. Although I'm super excited for her promotion because she really deserved it, I missed the fact that she wouldn't be in the office with me any longer and that I would soon be sharing an office with someone new. So after about 2 weeks of having an office to myself, I now have new office mate...
Don't really know how I feel about this just yet! Before I shared an office with someone who was in the same age category as myself and usually we had girl talk off and on all day HA! But now everything has changed, and my new office mate is older with kids my age and older...and since she hasn't been in this office she asks a lot of questions (which I really don't mind), its just if I give her an answer she says stuff like, "no its not like that" " I don't think that's correct"...so it leaves me to often wonder why do you ask me if you aren't going to believe anything I say??? Anyways, I went off on a tangent...well I was out sick one day last week and I come back and she has totally rearranged the office...
Since I'm getting ready to go on maternity leave I don't say anything I just left it as is because they weren't horrible changes, however, I am left wondering if she is crazy enough to touch my things on my desk while I'm on maternity leave. I really hope not because that will really make me go off on her! So basically I didn't all this rambling to say I sure hope when I come back and everything is totally different from how I left it. I have gone through everything on my desk and put things away in my locked drawers in case someone uses my desk while I'm gone. However, I didn't take my pictures and things down because its my desk and even if you are sitting there you aren't to be touching my things! And I feel if you are sitting there you should look at my pictures as a reminder that its not your desk its mine, and you aren't to get too comfortable!
Okay maybe I am tripping...but I dont want people touching my things and I guess I know the culture of our office where they feel if I move something or change something it shouldn't be a big problem to her!
Am I crazy for worrying about this (be real with me)???
