Don’t Panic - shrutimanjunath

If you have acquaintance, who share a good rapport with you, ask them to get some food for you while you are in a hospital.

Even at times if you feel frustrated, u can ask them to do cleaning, cooking food, taking care of baby while you sleep. you can ask sorry later.

Another thing, I will share here, my friend who was alone during her labour of 2 days with her hubby. She was howling and panicky as it was induced labojur and she had other complications too. her howling and panics made her hubby console her for 2 days regularly and this made both of them tired. If you and your husband are managing this alone, then definitely someone is needed to take care of the baby once it is born. You might not be in full position to take care; instead your hubby can do it provided he’s not tired like in the above case. So when in labour, just relax yourself and try not to panic and depend much on your hubby continuously without him taking any rest.

I’m not sure about your situation but it’s always better you remain calm without disturbing your husband.

The Boss is always Right

When you take a long time, you're slow.
When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.

When you don't do it, you're lazy.
When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy.

When you make a mistake, you're an idiot.
When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority.
When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

When you take a stand, you're being bull-headed.
When your boss does it, he's being firm.

When you overlooked a rule continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Are you eating a good breakfast? Are you adding greens and extra fruit to your diet? Do you take care of your teeth? Simple changes to your daily diet can make a huge long-term improvement in your health. Resolve today to make one big change to your usual habits.

Embrace a new spirit of optimism and refuse to let things get you down today. Blunt speech will bring better results than you might expect. Know your boundaries and be a bit conservative estimating how much you can do. Expect distractions and a change of plans. This may bring a welcome opportunity.

Like playing a game of chess, you may need to think through your next move carefully. It could be that your opponent is taking a long time to make the next move and you’re impatient. As a result, you may make your decision too hastily. Feel free to take as much time as you need. Your opponent may be thinking two or three moves ahead of you already, so concentrate.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a day for fun and games. In fact, you might feel an annoying emotional weightiness, making you feel less energetic than usual. There’s a sober tone that’s asking you to take a hard-nosed look at reality and make some decisions regarding goals and plans. You could feel like the timer buzzer is about to go off. The minute hand is ticking away and there are many more adventures in store.

Today should be a gratifying day, full of great news, pleasant surprises, and opening doors of opportunity on just about every level. Career breaks and chances to earn more money could come your way. New friends may be introduced to you, and opportunities for education and travel also may arise. Whatever actually manifests out of all this is up to you. You might find decisions difficult.

You may not want to openly admit something to someone today, even though you know it’s true. You’re more than likely working to hide behind a barrier that has formed between you and a close loved one or family member. If you insist on behaving this way, you may want to consider why you even bother staying in the relationship in the first place.

You may feel particularly in the mood to play pranks today as the inner clown in you takes hold. However, make sure that your practical jokes are in good taste or you may end up in someone’s bad books.

You, or someone close to you, may be in a relationship that appears romantic, but could be undermining self-confidence and true happiness. Any highly controlling relationship, where a person feels they are unworthy of better treatment, demands courage and change. Real love encourages the beloved and their dreams without domination or control.

A male friend could introduce you to people from foreign countries or people who have traveled a lot. They might have valuable information that you could use later. This information could also help you finish old projects that have been waiting to be done. Your eye for detail is especially acute. Make notes of interesting facts even if they don’t apply right now. You’ll make good use of them later.
