Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


I'm so excited

That stupid Pointer Sisters song (That would be "I'm so excited" for Army of Dad, Alli and Cashin - since you kids are too young to remember back that far) is running through my mind.

I just found out from the plastic surgeon's office that I will be able to have my tummy tuck next month and insurance will cover it because it is reconstructing some issues created by my last c-section!!!! I just can't believe it. I am about to bounce off the walls or lapse into another bad 80s song by Lionel Richie "Dancing on the Ceiling."

No one can possibly fathom how excited I am at this very moment. I started crying when I got the news that I could schedule it and get it done!!!! My boss was about to cry at the prospect of losing me for two weeks, but I'm going to try and get a laptop and a blackberry and work during that time. If I could create eight to 10 stories per week after a c-section, I can certainly maintain my high standards of excellence after a tummy tuck. OHMIGOD!!!!

I'm beside myself with excitement.

    Jane, if you would like to email me, I'll share with you - in private - what issues there are. Not something I feel inclined to share with the world. Thanks for the good wishes. Sounds like you understand only TOO well the three c-sections.

    Great. All my friends are getting smaller. Meanwhile, I'm turning into the world's tallest grape.

    Those C-sec scars just don't want to play nice with a little belly fat. Congrats on scoring the insurance -- that's pretty cool.

    Yeah, I'm glad insurance decided to fix things. The gynecologists have been blowing me off, but this will really help. I may just disclose all the gory details. One of my coworkers is really mad at me and trying to mask it with jokes, but I can tell she is mad and it really hurts my feelings because I was hoping she'd be happy for me. But, she really isn't. She's mad because she thinks her work load is going to increase in my absence.

    Good deal, the insurance company has always been real good to me to, well most of the time haha. I'm sure you're gonna look great, good for you. I'm so excited...Isn't that the one where they keep going "I KNOW I KNOW!" Or maybe its a different one, but for some reason I'm thinking Flash Dance haha.

    There is a car commercial with that song now that you mention it. And, if I look good enough, I may be doing some flashdance style moves. ;)

    And, thanks. I've been having some emotional issues over dealing with this. Sort of weird. The stomach thing is a result of giving birth to three beautiful children and they're my battle scars - the stretch marks and loose skin - and I think I'm having a bit of an identity crisis at the moment. Weird.
