This is my FAVORITE question right now. No, seriously. Last week, I loved saying "Next week!" and this week, I relish saying "Friday!" The look on people's faces is priceless when they say "Really?" It sorta makes up for all those times in February when folks said "Really? THAT LONG?"
I also like the "How are you feeling?" question. I'm actually feeling pretty good - very tired, very uncomfortable, which is par for the course in this game. Ironically, I feel better now than I did during my entire 2nd trimester. So, I can't complain about being uncomfortable because that still beats a chest infection.
The weekend has been great - I've been on a tear getting things done around the house. Car is officially detailed - all surfaces have been freshly cleaned with Armor All or Windex - NewKid better appreciate it, dammit. I did it FOR HER. Now, she can see clearly through the windows. I figured she'd need all the help she could get with those little cross-eyed peepers she'll probably be sportin'. I've also seen just about everyone I could see before this kid makes her debut. I missed a few folks who were in from out of town, but it was really due to their schedule and there was nothing I could do about it. This is why I was so stressed 2 weeks ago - trying to fit in out-of-town visitors and such. I'm almost done with projects at home - I finally figured out a good archival system for the digital photos, so I will get to work on that today and I am actually excited about that.
Oddly enough, I have been really, really into knitting lately. It's sort of like an alcoholic stocking up their mini-bar and buying a new set of martini glasses. What's the point? I'm staring down a shotgun barrel of No Knitting for the next month, so it's amusing that NOW, I am totally getting into it. Whatever.
Posting will be light this week because of the holidays. If anything happens in the NewKid arena, I will most definitely post. However, in the meantime, No Posts = No NewKid. Personally, I LOVE Independence Day - it holds no familial obligations, no gifts, no decorations. As a special bonus, no extravagant meals must be cooked or consumed. Just a lazy day. The best kind, in my book.
Arun has been so much fun lately. He's talking a storm and like all toddlers, makes up his own damned context for words and if you don't get it, then you are the fool. I think one reason why he and I are getting along so well lately is that I've realized that I understand some of his persnickety behaviour. If something drops on the floor, of course, it has to be picked up before he can continue eating. Hello! Common sense. If a cabinet door isn't shut all the way, of course, it has to be shut before he can continue on his way. Hello! Common sense. If a lid has to be screwed on properly, or a piece of trash picked up immediately or a spill wiped just so...... well..... Hello! Common sense. I dig it.
However, I'm not sure what this says about me
