I haven't rushed up to see her. She's got a billion friends and family on her mother's side that I doubt will give her or the baby a chance to breathe before they decend on her enmass.
I'm very happy my niece is okay. I'm very happy that the baby is okay. (Last I heard, the name chosen was Ashley) I'm happy for my parents, her parents, etc.
I however, feel very little about all of this. And that feels kinda strange. Like I'm a jerk or something. But to be honest, I don't have a lot of contact with my niece. Just family obligation stuff. It's not like I'll be spending a lot of time with her or this child. So, I guess I'm just kinda blank.
As for other things...
We got the paperwork for the temporary disability insurance. We wasted no time, and instead took it right to the doctor's office where they filled out their part. Todd filled out his part. We'll send it tomorrow in the mail. Hopefully this is all going to work.
We also drove to the Saucony warehouse, because let's be honest... I am a Saucony whore. I am the bitch of Saucony sneakers. I have tried on every type of running and/or walking sneaker around and the only sneakers that I put on and adore instantly are Saucony's. No we didn't buy any shoes today, money is too tight for that. But we did check it out to see if it was worth it.
Since no one seems to care if you try on sneakers there, I tried on lots of them. I tried on a pair of hundred dollar running shoes, that retail for about 130 dollars. I adore them. If I had the money I'd buy two pairs of them. (Yes, you must alternate your running/walking shoes... in fact, here's a new sneaker fact I learned today. You should always have two pairs of sneakers and rotate them, because it takes 24-48 hours for the inserts to "spring back" when you moosh them down. If you wear sneakers all the time, the same pair, you are not giving them a chance to demosh.) And, I was told that the inserts that come with sneakers are really crap and I should be buying good sneaker inserts every time I buy sneakers. *sighs* walking is becoming very expensive. Shoes only last me about 300 miles.
The cats have been very well behaived the last couple of days. They are trying to lull me into a false sense of security so they can further plot my death, I'm sure of it.
