i'm nearly 8 months pregnant.  i took a sick day yesterday for the first time in years.  i came into the office today, but i should still be at home and in bed.  my sweet, thoughtful boss is now asking me for overtime over the next couple days.  absolutely lovely, since i have zero energy.  i'm already wondering how i'm going to make it though to 5:00 today!  overtime schmovertime, i think it's not going to happen...  just irked that he'd ask right now!  nice to know that he's grateful for me to show up at all... boo.

That sucks, overtime is the last thing you need. You need to look after yourself and your little one right now, stuff your boss

haha, thanks. i got out yesterday with no OT but i did drive in today in case i need to work past the time of my last bus home. gotta love busses to the suburbs that only run during early rush hour! good news is that the dr. thinks it's just a regular old virus, a normal cold. no strep or ear infections, so that's good. i just need to try to feel ok for being in my SIL's wedding tomorrow!! :)
