First off, I am very sorry that I have not been to so many of your sites for so long. I feel really awful about it, but there is this thing going on at work right now that prevents me from doing much surfing and by the time I leave work, go to the gym and have dinner I end up crashing on the couch most nights too beat to move so I don't get any reading done at home either. By the way - I don't know anything about that second trimester glow everyone talks about. I'm still exhausted. Not as bad as it was in the first trimester, but it turns out this pregnant thing is rather hard work.
Second, is it just me or has it been March for at least 3 months? I can't believe there are two entire weeks left. This has been the longest month of my life for no reason whatsoever, it just keeps right on being March no matter what I do. Can I take the rest of March off and just start again in April?
Third, my favorite part of my entire weekend was when my mother in law called me chubby. We went over there for dinner on Saturday, and after spending the entire evening pointing out to the entire crowd how big my belly is getting, when we were leaving she said "Goodnight Chris, goodnight Chubby." I was less that entirely amused.
Fourth, anybody have any suggestions on where to buy nursery furniture? We went to Babies R Us over the weekend and nothing they had really thrilled me. They did however have a little Tigger hat and bib and a Winnie the Pooh outfit that I just had to buy. And then of course I had to organize all our baby clothes by type (onesies on the left, footie pjs on the right). Tonight I will go back and organize each section by color. I also got some laundry markers and marked a blue dot on everything my mom has given us and a green dot on everything my mother in law has given us so that I can dress the kid appropriately for audiences with each grandma. See, they will remember and notice and I definitely will not so I am just saving myself a lot of angst.
And finally, last night I had a dream which involved, in part, a bunch of people running up a snow covered hill carrying and flapping large white feather-covered wings while "We Are the Champions" played and people sang along. Just thought I would share.
