It was a cold, dark night.
It was dark.
And um, cold.
And like totally night-time.
And, um, then… let’s see… I was scared, and, um, this really mean looking thing came out of the closet and it GOT ME!
Okay, okay… there was no closet monster, nor was there a cold, dark night. But I did get kidnapped by life this week.
I had friends in town that I have not seen in years. They came up for my baby shower, and it was so great to see everyone. My mom stayed with me for a few days which was great. We talked and drank delicious Dean & DeLuca coffee that my sister brought home from Manhattan.
Then my husband decided this was the week we would buy me a new “Mommy Mobile”. I had a new car, less than a year old, and I really liked it a lot. But the rear-facing baby seat would not comfortably fit in the backseat. As in, the front passenger seat was totally unusable with the car seat behind it. So… he did a great job of finding a replacement that not only fit the baby seat, but also kept our payment the same. It’s lovely and I didn’t have to do a thing except show up to give the thumbs up on his choice of vehicle. He did well!
My dogs have this new obsession with barking in the middle of the night. I have no clue what they have started barking at, but it is extremely annoying. The weather is so lovely outside, it seems that they would be sleeping so well. That just isn’t the case, every night I have to bring them in to sleep because they have taken to barking at 3:30am. That’s why I am up and writing this post at 4:15am…
I didn’t take any photos at my baby shower, I wanted to concentrate on visiting with everyone. A friend did take photos and will be sending them to me, and I in turn will share them with you. But I knew if I focused on snapping photos, I would get side tracked and maybe miss something… I had a wonderful time and got to see friends and family that I haven’t seen in far too long. It was great!
And the pool in our neighborhood opened last weekend. Did you know that when you’re very pregnant your stomach is extremely heavy? And did you know that when you get in the pool all of that weight seems to go away? It is like magic. And like heaven. And even if the water is totally cold, it’s worth it to have that relief.
It is starting to hit me that it is only a few weeks until a new baby arrives. That is overwhelmingly exciting! And it is just overwhelming. I feel like I have so much to do, and some how time just keeps on ticking. I have a changing table, stroller and high chair to put together. I have a chest of drawers that needs to be painted pink. I have pictures to hang. Bottles and baby clothes to wash. I need to pack a bag just in case things go ahead of schedule. I need to make sure we don’t forget the camera. I need to make a list of people to call when the baby arrives. (Did I mention that it is 4 in the morning? My mind is a bit in over-drive)…
So…as you can see…I’ve been kidnapped by life this week. I’m sorry I’ve neglected the blog, I’ll see to it that my help doesn’t allow this to happen again. (I have to find some “help”, but when I do I will cast the blame on them!)
Until then, I guess I’m the help, and I’m to blame. So I’ll share the blame with pregnancy brain. Yeah, that’s it. And I’d like to blame the closet monster…
