Attention! This is a rant/vent ** Then I will get to my day
Why can't people understand that I do not want children? I don't understand what is so hard to understand about that.
My co-worker's wife is due soon. I am very happy for them. I know they are excited and I am excited for them, however I don't want to be in that boat. Another co-worker asked him when his wife was due and he said next month. The co-worker then said "now all we need is Cortney on board" I looked at him and said "I would rather die" He just stared at me open mouthed. He didn't know what to say.
Children aren't for everyone. I recognize that I would not make a good parent, so I decided not to be one. I love other peoples' children (in small doses) I volunteer with Kids at the library... I just don't want kids of my own... ever.
In other news, my day was pretty decent. I volunteered at the Library today for the United Way of Blair County's Day of Caring. Area business allow employees to volunteer with the United Way for the day and pay them their regular salary. The volunteers are then sent to different community organizations. Our group of volunteers helped with outside maintenance. They trimmed the trees and shrubs, planted flowers and tilled up the mulch in front of the library.
I was in charge of getting lunch together for our team (go figure lol) - We had Ox Roast, potato salad, chips and cookies. I set up a nice buffet style lunch for them and everyone enjoyed it. There was so much left over food! I brought a container of Ox Roast (ox roast is made by putting seasoned, cooked roast beef through a meat grinder, then placed in a slow cooker with water and spices) for my boyfriend. I did ok at lunch. I didn't overeat, but I did have a few chips and some potato salad. It was good!
After the library, I went tanning then to the gym. Now I am at work. Whoo hoo!
