I'm off to Omaha today. My two early risers are up and going before I could get my shower in. Of course the two night owls: Maddie and DH are still out. It's suppose to be gorgeous today so I'm anxious to get going.
The one thing I've ever wanted to come true from tv/movies: Rosie from the Jetsons would be a close second, but I would love the teleporter thingee from StarTrek. I didn't watch the show much, but always thought it would be so cool to just beam yourself. I know it would cut down on all of that family bonding of "Are we there yet stuff" but still would be cool.
Feeling huge relief that the church thing is behind me, and am now spending my time thinking about writing my 9/11 story for the local paper ... it's always something on my little brain.
I also decided to try crocheting again ...figured that I am a lot better at quitting things than I am at perservering, and at the very least want to model good behavior for the kids. Also, am hoping that I can obsess about that rather than ttc (and of course, when Danny slept in until 8:00 today I thought to myself, "what am I, crazy?")
am i just crazy?
people want to see our house today. it'll work out great b/c we'll be gone at the mw's. dh got all pissed that i agreed to let the people come through. i thought the object was to sell our house, not be all picky about when people can see it. yeah, the basement started leaking again. there's nothing we can do about it but he's convinced that no one will want the house now. however, in the disclosures, we had to put that the basement does leak occasionally. wth? if they already know about it, it shouldn't be a suprise with all the fricken rain we've had lately. ugh. it just irritates me that he can't be clear on anything. i mean really. what's the big deal? we have a small leak in one corner of the basement. it's a basement, they leak. it's not finished or anything and there's a drain in the floor for the water to go down. maybe it's a guy thing. i don't know. i thought the object was to sell and seeing how hard of a time it's been so far i'm not going to be picky. the housing market sucks right now and in the 3 months the house has been up only 3 people have looked at it.
ok, i'm rambling. sorry. i had to get this out somewhere.
Dresses for boys: ill post some on yahoo of the denmark trip, where louis had a dress on ALL the time at the beach, its the only practical outfit for a kid who gets wet, sand, dry, wet sand dry...a mother who is a freak about sun exposure! so a dress was the perfect slip on! and yee, ikm on a beach in denmark topless with my In Laws so i just thought, oh well anything goes!
Peru michelle: yes you sound SO much better than when your parents first left, i am so glad this has given you a good bnding time with L, and some new confidence! but im sure it will be nice to have some more adults in the house.
Meli: also interesting in your 9/11 story
emmy: you back yet=?
anne: how did the ultrasound go??
today was my first day back to work, i miss mid afternoon siesta's
Anne, I can't believe you are so far along already! Time flies when you're not pregnant
Oh, boy, 9/11 -- the short story is that I was seven months pregnant with Miles, on my way to my office three blocks from the World Trade Center that day. I was allowed to come in at 9:30 since I was pg so as to miss the worst of rush hour ... a huge blessing because I didn't have to get OUT of the city that day. I only made it as far as Hoboken when the first tower had already been hit ... watched that tower collapse from across the river. Everyone was screaming.
God knows that was traumatic enough, but what I really want to get across in my story (assuming the newspaper prints it -- they didn't ask me personally or anything, just asking for local stories to commemorate the day) is how awful it was in New York for weeks and months afterwards, how frightening and how sad and how inconvenient to get around. I'd like to throw in a little political diatribe too about how New Yorkers are really the only ones who know what it is like to be attacked, yet they by and large hate GW Bush and never vote for him. I hope that the anniversary doesn't engender a lot of self-serving political bullsh*t.
PS I'd like to see pictures of Hilger in a skirt too. :
we're back! the u/s went well. my little LimaBean has been doing some major growing and is measuring at 12w3d so my dd is changed to feb.23. *whew* huge sigh of relief from 2 weeks ago. then i met with my mw, had a pap and all that wonderful jazz. she gave me some sort of ms drink stuff. its supposed to help with the queezy feeling i get all day long. i would like to hope that all the puking is behid me now. but, after as sick as i felt yesterday i think it's hanging in for the long haul. i did lose another pound but my urine didn't show any keytones so i'm not burning up my fat cells anymore
