I met with my boss today to go over the details of my maternity leave. I sit down in her office and we start to talk.
"You are leaving in the middle of November, right?"
I think I almost fell out of the chair. I was not able to stop myself from saying, "Have you SEEN me lately?"
I told her that, no, the baby is due Nov. 7 and I am hoping to work up until Oct. 30.
"Wow...that's not that far away. I thought it was just a big baby. I was thinking we had until Thanksgiving."
Ummm...no. Pumpkins, not turkeys!
In other news, I started cleaning off my desk and tidying the area around my desk today. It is the one area of my classroom that I never quite get to...ever. It is kind of sad that I will clean it for someone else but not for myself. At least I have a couple of weeks now to enjoy it!
