Monica's Musings #11

Time for some more random thoughts from me.

I was told by the doctor yesterday that it's a state law that all preschool and daycare children receive the flu vaccine. This was complete news to me and really kind of makes me upset. I couldn't find too much information about it other than it looks like it's for private preschools and daycares which seems strange AND the only exception is religious. Huh, what about medical reasons. I asked CJ's school about it today and they had never heard about it so I guess it doesn't apply in his preschool. That's a relief.

My doctor's appointment was canceled yesterday because my doctor was sick. We tried to reschedule, but it's so hard to schedule things right now. Between the kids schedules and it being so close to Christmas everything they were offering me just wasn't possible. They told me they would call me back, but so far nothing. Hmmm, I wonder when I'll get to actually schedule my doctor's appointment. I tried to get them to put me in with a nurse practitioner (because I've had that in the past) or maybe another doctor, but they said they couldn't do that unless there was a problem with my pregnancy. So I wait for them to figure out how to squeeze me in.

I had joined in an ornament swap this year. I just mailed out ornaments that I made to my partner today. I still haven't received mine. I am getting a little nervous that I might not be getting anything as my partner has been pretty much unresponsive.

I ordered a DS game on ebay for Natalie. I ordered it last Thursday and paid right away and got a tracking number, but it doesn't appear that it has been picked up or that the post office even has the package as all the tracking number has said since Thursday is electronic shipping label received. I contacted the seller and he claims to have dropped it off at the post office and requested that I wait until Wednesday and if I don't get it then to contact him and he'll mail out another one. Hmmm, I wonder why he wouldn't want to contact the post office and find out what's going on with it. Ebay makes me nervous. So hoping it comes soon.

Natalie's computers teacher has allowed her to make up her work. Not only did he allow her to make up her work, but he also adjusted her grade. She went from a 79 to a 90 in that class. I'm hoping she learned her lesson about completing her assignments on time. And I hope she really appreciates that her teacher is adjusting her grade. Most teachers wouldn't do that.

I haven't even begun my baking yet. Usually I have it mostly done by now I think. The thing is I think usually I need a platter for playgroup by this week. I haven't needed the cookies and don't think I'll really need them until the very end of next week. So I'll probably start this weekend. Well, I'll do some on Thursday because Natalie is having a party at school and wants to bring mounds, so I'll bring those.

I can't believe that I only have 8 weeks left of this pregnancy. It has gone quick and we still have not agreed on a name. I'm thinking we'll decide when she is born and we actually see her. Figure out what suits her.
