I'm definitely getting more tired, and feeling slower at doing anything. I feel pretty amazingly lucky right now, though, that I'm not working *and* I don't have any other kids to take care of. All of you who do those things (sometimes both together) are rockstars! Being able to stay decently rested, and be quiet when I need to be, has made a big difference for me. We'll see how things go when we eventually get to the planned second baby.
My husband's headed off on Thursday to Montreal for work, and I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with that. When I went to CA, I was going somewhere where I got to see all sorts of family and friends and had a bunch of things to do. This will be different, for sure! We are going to go out for a nice dinner tonight since he'll be gone on Valentine's Day, so I'm looking forward to that. We'll see how I fit at the table, though - our "special night out" place is a small restaurant with tables close together!!
So, since he's going to be gone on Thursday, I've made plans with a single friend to have fun that day. She is going to come over and help me figure out drapes for the windows on our house that don't have them, and then we're going to take a field trip to the restaurant supply store, and we'll wrap up by cooking good food and her letting me feed her gin and tonics. Good times!
I got a baby registry finished up yesterday - about time since my baby shower is in two weeks. It was actually really nice to put together, because it made me realize that really, we have most of what we need, and we're down to some odds and ends necessities and some things that would be nice to have. I'm hoping a lot of people will choose to sign up for the parts I put in where they can help stock our freezer or bring us fresh meals after baby is born.
