from an e-mail I just got...
In case you didn't realize, our WEB administrator, Bob Bobbity (name changed to protect the innocent), has been quite productive lately, or rather his wife, Bibbity, has.
They're expecting their first child very soon (end of April) and
we're getting ready to shower them with good wishes and gifts!
Please join us at a party in honor of Bob, Bibbity and the forthcoming
"addition" on Thursday, April 6 in the XXXXXXX at
2:30PM. I've tried to address this invitation to all those at XXXX
who have had ongoing interactions with Bob, but if I've missed
someone in your department, please bring them along.
If you would like to join in a group gift for the baby, we're
collecting approximately $10 a person. You can drop it off at my
office at XXXXXXXX, or leave it in my box near the XX
reception desk by the end of next week.
We look forward to see you at the party! Ah Spring! when
everything begins to bloom!
Ugh - So does adoption just not count? Am I overly hormonal, as I'm just ovulating, am I over reacting in thinking that my department just doens't care? I SO want to cry about this. I just TOTALLY feel left out and ignored by them. ugh.
Speaking of feeling left out - I FUCKED up and forgot to do something special for Narda's birthday, which was on Friday - I DID get her a card from Malka and I, and Dad and Janet took us all out for lunch to celebrate - but man, I'm the QUEEN of doing special things for her, and I didn't really do anything. I'll have to REALLY make it up to her. I know we had dad and Janet arriving that day, and Malka's Simchat Bat to prepare, and um, well, a new BABY, but still. Even though she ALWAYS says that she doesn't need anything, I know better. I'm a bad girlfriend.
Baby, I know you read this on occasion, and I'm sorry - I'll totally make it up to you. You are my love, my Besheret, the Mommy to my daughter, my sexy mamacita, and the best thing that ever happened to me. Happy Birthday, baby.

This is in NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM meant to ignore the AMAZING love, support and incredible gifts we have already received! We have been constantly blown away by you and other non-blog reading friends, so THANK YOU!!!!!! (This is an isolated kvetch...)
