Hello ladies!! I hope everyone is doing well!!

The last 6 weeks have been the busiest weeks of my life! I miss it here and having people that understand and sympathize with what I am going through...

*For starters, my office has moved and combined with 3 other offices (meaning lots of overtime and trying to figure out how everyone does everything)
*Training people to take over my job for when I get laid off in a couple months- seems pathetic- hey this is how I do this, they think you'll be better so I'm teaching you how to do what I already know how to do
*We have moved at home as well. I was more of a traffic guard and motivational coach (stairs were involved, uggg), DH and my dad moved everything. However, DH has decided it is completely my job to unpack and organize everything.
*My BFF had a M/C 6 weeks ago and just found out she is PG again. Trying to be there more for her during her struggles.
*Planning a LARGE (450+ people) wedding reception for the first week of Sept. We were married in May (strictly for Insurance purposes only, with the baby and all) but we already had deposits and vendors and save the dates sent out for sept (We did that before we even knew I was PG) so we have decided to keep with the party, seeing as how we only had 30 people at our actual ceremony

As for the baby, we are doing wonderful
She is a crazy little bean, flipping and flopping and kicking like nuts! Elective U/S told us were on team pink, anatomy scan is in 2 weeks, curious to see if everything is going as expected!

I will be trying to read through and catch up on what I have missed, I hope yall are ok with me dropping back in like this!!

Welcome back, Melissa!!! You'll have to change your screen name, soon

Sounds quite ineffective, to lay you off only to have someone else take over those same roles. Sigh. Organizations aren't exactly effective, sadly.

Sounds like a FUN reception!! Your marriage needs to be celebrated, and what a better way Keep us posted on that and we'll want pics after the event, you know

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

Yay Melissa! Glad you're back!
The stuff about your job sucks and it's stupid that you have to train your replacement.

Also, you forgot one of the more amazing events of the past few weeks. NKOTB concert!!!
