The most exciting thing I have to report is that I found some Grade B maple syrup in my local grocery store! It's darker and more strongly-flavoured than the regular stuff. It came in a bottle of nearly a litre for $48.50... I nearly didn't buy it, but then figured it wasn't actually any more expensive, volume-for-volume, than my regular maple syrup. So I splurged. And then last night I was feeling depressed, so I cheered myself up by making a batch of homemade maple walnut ice cream. Good heavens, that stuff is delicious! I had a bowl for breakfast. :) And because DH and Flatmate are still on Atkins, I can eat it all myself.
I realised today that the baby could come this month, and it's making me nervy. I'd rather go slightly early than late (my EDD is June 9; my birthday's June 17, and I'd really rather not give birth on or near my birthday!). My productivity has tanked of recent days due to depression, so I'm not exactly plowing through my to-do list. :(
This should be a good week, though. I'm going to take DD on a playdate with a pregnant friend of mine one morning this week; Bible study starts up again on Thursday (and I can hopefully reclaim the Ottobres I lent another mother!); MW appointment on, um, Wednesday?... and then on Saturday I'm having my baby shower. It'll be my first baby shower and I'm moderately excited about it, even though I had to be very firm with Mother on not having games. I loathe baby shower games. (Mum was all "But what will people DO?" and I said "Er, eat and talk to each other, like at any other social gathering?" Strange person, my mother.) I'm making the cake - my choice, I'm into fancy cakes at the moment - and maybe some fancy piped sugar cookies as well. Then on the Sunday, I might be hosting a Mother's Day gathering for MIL, SIL, DH's grandmother, and the various husbands and chillun attached to them. I'm not sure how I feel about that. :p I could make a nice layered carrot cake... MIL loves carrot cake.
Had really strong BH yesterday. I was getting them fairly regularly a few months ago, and then for some reason they stopped. But yesterday I had 'em for hours! Weird, no? I wasn't even exercising or anything. And the baby was tossing and turning all day... which kind of annoys me, because he was vertex and anterior at my last two appointments, and I'd appreciate it if he stayed that way!
