Thanks for The Support

I'm still here. Thank you for all of your comments. I go through these moments of doubt until I discuss the situation with outsiders and they all seemed to be appalled. It's good to know that I'm not going crazy. I partially post this information to hear feedback but it's also an effort to document all the madness that is going on.

Xmas was great although it didn't feel the same without snow. It was fun seeing the family and as always really hard to leave. I'm sure work is a little irritated with me because I came back with a wicked cold. I called out yesterday and I'm almost 90% sure I'm not going to make it through a full day. I sound like an old lady who spent her whole life smoking cigs. Thankfully my local pharmacist hooked me up with some good drugs that should help me get over it all pretty fast.

I've decided to start looking for a new job at the end of the month, even if it means changing careers. I really can't job hunt right now with my due date looming so near and I also don't want to lose the 3 months of maternity leave I have accrued. Three months away from work. I have a hard time imagining that amount of time off but I hear it will go really fast. This whole pregnancy just seemed to flown by. I try to enjoy every minute of it, especially when I'm hanging out on the couch and will all of sudden see my whole belly jump and morph into some crazy shape.

When I lost my voice from a recent cold, my family nicknamed me Jim or cousin Jimmy. I sounded that bad. I'll hold off on changing your name to Luke though, lol. Feel better soon.

Maternity leave moved both fast and slow for me. I hope it takes its time with you. Three months off is awesome. I know you'll enjoy being away from work. Not much longer!

I am just catching up with the latest office chaos and I am speechless. I have so many opinions (your management, the marketing lady & HR are all idiots)... I agree with your approach, bide your time, take your maternity leave and then go to another company with a better work environment. Sorry you are stuck in this miserable place for now.
