Tomorrow is Friday. I am glad. But at the same time it means another week has gone by and I am one week closer to having to go back to work. I think I will add an extra couple of weeks to my 12 week leave. In CA you get a total of 18 weeks, 12 of those paid (at 55% of your salary). When I go back the husband will take 6-12 weeks off. He gets a total of 12 but only 6 of those are paid. Towards the end of the summer I will probably take another month off. Despite the long, intense days and nights the Peanut and I have together, I can't believe I am going to have to give that all up. But I guess that's life.
As I write this, the Peanut is sleeping on the husband's chest. It's a cute sight. I should be sleeping but I need the break to do something different.
So, when I feed the baby, I sometimes watch DVD's. I've been watching Showtime's The Tudors, which is basically a porno with great costumes (when they wear clothes). I got into the Henry VIII saga when I read The Other Boleyn Girl and watched the movie (book is better). I also watched Goal! The Dream Begins, which is a soccer movie about an illegal Mexican from LA making it big with Newcastle. It's a good movie for a sports movie. That movie actually required more concentration than The Tudors (because of all the soccer moves), so I ended up watching half the movie while the baby slept. Nursing does take some concentration so I need to watch something that I can sometimes tune out without missing anything that major. I was thinking of Lost or Grey's Anatomy, but both of those seem like they will require concentration. Any recommendations? Anyone seen Coupling?
