Supporting my professional and personal life. My supervisor was extremely accommodating to my needs and demands as my pregnancy progressed.

LOL - that was the family "joke" for me. I had such horrid Morning Sickness, the only explanations were that it was my first pregnancy (which it was) and/or I was having twins! When it came time for my ultra sound I made them tripple check to be sure I wasn't carrying twins. The only way I made the thought of twins bareable was to think "if I have twins, I won't have to do this pregnancy thing again!" After all, I'd only agreed to having two kids lol. We'll see if we have two too... It was so scary having our first; I'm not sure I could intentionally get pregnant again LOL.

I keep thinking... would they know that they were really pajamas at work? I mean, well, would they? I can wear jeans on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'm never allowed to wear pajamas... I think I'll ask - just for shits and giggles! And I agree Asian Betty, $40 is a bit much...
OMG Mac - you're too much! LOL
This is just the beginning too lol. Soo much work to do, so little time :P Welcome Brany Alley!
OMG Lia! LOLOL - When I first started working at my current job, fresh out of training class, I was laughing loudly on the phone with the Customer. A girl I work with IM'd me when I was mid-laugh "I hate her laugh, it's so annoying. Why doesn't she try working instead of having conversations?" I felt SICK! I shit you not - that girl was red-faced and apologized repeatedly to me. All day. She kept saying over and over "I didn't mean you! You work! I meant someone else, I swear!" I'm unsure if she actually meant to IM about someone else's laugh - I hadn't heard anyone else laughing. Of corse I copied MY boss on it (before she'd gotten a chance to apologize to me) - I felt like crap. Even if she didn't mean me. Girls are mean! :P
Have a Margarita every single time you think about that day - you've earned each and every single one!!
