aw...my gma passed away after many years with alzheimer's, and our family stayed with her 24/7 for the last six months or so. You totally made me miss her.
I quit on October 26, 3 days after I found out I was pregnant. My DS is almost 4 wks old now, and I want a cigarette every.single.day. Every time I go into a gas station, I have to stop myself from buying a pack. sigh.
My almost 4 wk old DS slept from 10 at night until 4am and then woke every hour after that for a quick nurse, until 7 or 8am, for the first couple of weeks. Now he goes to sleep earlier, but wakes up between 1 and 2am and doesn't really sleep again until 7 or 8 am - just nurses and fusses and pulls off and poops and spits up. Wheeeeeee, fun!!
I work 20 hrs/wk at a university hospital, and get full-time benefits. For my family of four, our HMO is.... $0. $1000 deductible, $10 copay. Really. I am so, so, so so lucky. We went for years with no insurance, I'm so happy to have this.
