I remember when the overwhelming sound of silence at work (interrupted only by sounds of typing and mouse scrollers) really bothered me. Having worked in a middle school the lack of chatter and other noise was such a problem, that I actually started to wear headphones and listen to pandora.com at work (with the boss's ok- they're very flexible at BIG INC).
On Wednesday after I settled in, my phone properly charging with earplugs ready for some pandora tunes, I realized that I didn't want the background noise.
I wanted the silence.
I haven't used my earphones once this week.
Eat at your own peril: Fast food.
I stopped at McDonald's the other day, and boy was it good. We don't have much fast food in our diet, so it is a special treat. Well. All day Thursday I had such gas. And you know what happens when you're breastfeeding?
Poor Ranger had all kinds of gas, and let me tell you, it could clear the room. When I signed him into daycare this am, my note on how he slept included an apology from Ranger, about the potency of his gas.
If I had known the "quiet room" (aka the lactation room) was so lovely, I would have tried to claim that I was pumping in advance of the baby.
