A New Partnership in the Making - get it, "make"-ing?

Is it harder to take a pregnant woman seriously in the business world?
 I suddenly understand why Palin waited seven months to let people know she
 was preggers. Though, I don't know how you keep it a secret when you’re
 that far along... I'd hate everyone thinking I was just fat.
 I just noticed that in the corporate world (and it’s most likely my own past-biases as well), 
that’s it’s hard to think of someone as the terminator when they’re carrying a child… it’s more like they’re “the nurturer.” Nothing wrong with that - just an observation.

Danny and I started our hypnobirthing classes last night. It was such a great feeling to be surrounded by people who share a similar view of labor and delivery that we have (I can only imagine it’s what attending a College Democrats of America meeting would be like at UC Berkeley.) We learned a lot. Danny said he’s glad we “do” yoga – because then it doesn’t seem as weird.

In other news, my pretties! Suite Spots (Version 2.0) is going to be
 featured on Make and Takes!!! I know, crazy right? You may be thinking 
to yourselves, what would a left-wing, hippie ideologue like moi possibly be
 doing with the world's greatest craft-blog? (Some may even be wondering 
what ideologue means--fair enough). But, I've got an "in."
 I'm going to postpone my progressive rhetoric (yes, of course I know I get on 
the soap-box) views for a post or two and focus on another of my great
 loves (no, not Burberry Handbags, silly) but yoga!!!


Make and Takes is having me as a guest blogger, and I'm going to write a
 little ditty about pre-natal yoga/being a yoga mama/just basically how 
to be all-around awesome (ok, maybe not so much the last one, but we'll
 see how it goes).
 I'm pretty stoked about this because I haven't written for the masses 
since they pulled the Delta Connection SkyWest Magazine off of planes, 
months ago... My column ("suite spots") still appears in the United 
Express version occasionally, but there just doesn't seem to be the
 advertising support for my stuff lately (I know, travesty... Right!?!)


So this is uber exciting!!!! The actual date of my debut hasn't been
 determined... I need to write the piece, get a yoga pose pic taken and a
 couple of other things need to fall in line first... But it's in the 
works, so I'll keep you posted on the date!!! Also, I think by 
vocalizing it here, it holds me a little more accountable for getting 
things in gear - you know? Kind of like having a sponsor in a 12-step 
program (you share with your sponsor what's going on in your life to keep you
 accountable.)

Additionally, I have a couple of zits on my face that rival 
the size of my baby-bump....(can you say PREGNANCY ACNE?!?!) You may think I'm exaggerating, but you
 have obviously not seen my chin/forehead lately. Swanky said she was going to start charging rent for the prime real-estate her little ditties were taking up on her face. I get it… and I’m feeling the same way.

Last thing – we got those double-pane energy efficient windows installed in the rest of our home this week. Besides being the right thing to do for the planet (it’s a delightful but old home, so hence…a total energy “suck”); but besides the green thing, and making the home much quieter (you can hardly hear our neighbors Harley in the morning)… they look beautiful and make the house feel like we’ve totally upgraded. Now if we could just do something about the pink sink in the “master” bathroom.

*Oh crap! One last thing (if you’re even still reading I’m really surprised!), but I’ve been all stressed at work about the 2008 Recruiter Summit I was hosting for the different department movers and shakers about Recruitment and where things were going with our company, and the economy, plus our affirmative action plan (whether you like it or hate it, an AAP is required by law when you’re a company the size of SkyWest). It went great!! My team all flew (some from Denver and another from LA); and it was like 45 minutes before the meeting and I kept thinking I needed to be stressed about something… but there was nothing to be stressed about because they had really taken care of everything. It was such a great feeling, and I’m so glad it’s over with!!! LONG DAY!

Yay! You said it, you're now held accountable to get your post done. Get writing or it's going to be a post-natal yoga feature, which would still be great!

Holy nuts! I'm so excited for you to be featured on Make and Takes!

Hmm... I wonder if I did a movie review of something for little people- I could convince her to be a guest blogger too.

...Oh, that's right. I just remembered that I'm not a writer. Crapsville.

I guess I'll just have to wait for The Daily Show to pick me up. It should be any day now.

Hey, randomly found your blog - it was a "suggested" blog on my Google Reader homepage. Ha ha! You're darling!

Makes and Takes? Congrats I guess. The real big news would be if you were invited to be a guest blogger on the scifinerdblog. Please contact Darth Spencer if you ever come up with a compelling piece about doing yoga in space or on a virtual reality system.
