Did I ever mention that fully 50% of my department is pregnant? Of course, there are only four of us in the department, but they’ve been pregnant in tandem, and there will actually be ONE WHOLE MONTH when they will both be out on leave at the same time. But I’m not worried.

Well, that number went down by one today. Just before noon, our little Neelie had a baby girl, as predicted by the cake at her shower. (I had a hint from the sonographer but the important thing is that we got the cake right.)
So! We have a wonderful temp all ready to fill in, and fortunately she has worked here before and is one sharp cookie so she can slide right into the other position when my coordinator goes out… Life! Who doesn’t love it?
P.S. Someone’s been fiddling with my mood manikin. Doesn’t he look like he’s doing the Hava Nagila?
