It is hot. I have eaten all the popsicles in the house and the closest thing I have to a cooling popsicle is ice cubes made from orange juice. (Which aren’t bad, actually, just not as exciting as twin pops).
The Pinnacles came and went, and went off rather well, aside from an issue with my baby bump, a table and the Best in Show award. My shower came and went right after that, and my mom and aunt came to visit. The shower was nice and the visit was fun, but it’s nice to get back to a somewhat normal schedule. A few things have happened since then:
The baby’s room is, for all intents and purposes, finished.
There are a few sqonky pictures on the wall – all supplied by Jason (i.e., paintings he did that we stuck in the closet). I’d planned on doing some other paintings for the walls, but let’s be honest with ourselves, shall we? I probably won’t touch the room except to dust it until the baby comes. Besides, I really do adore the little grub guy in the painting above the rocking chair. We were originally going to put a tree mural on the wall. Then, we were going to put the tree on canvas, in case it was crappy. Now, the baby gets old paintings we didn’t like enough to put up in the first place. Welcome to your parents, Baby0!
I’m working on the baby blanket (OpEd, from Knitty). I’m on the part where you knit 10 rounds of each color. I have like, 6 more rounds of color to go, but it just keeps getting bigger, taking longer, etc. Etc. At the moment, it looks like a giant green and brown rasta hat. I’m tempted to just bind off and put on the dog because a) its huge and b) its too hot to knit, but I really don’t want it to not get finished.
And then there’s me – I’m HUUUUGE! This is why I’m so hot, and annoyed and not wanting to finish things. Pretty much, if I could just lay around all day in a sundress, drinking iced tea and getting fanned by some sort of servant, that would be just fine. I just want the baby to make its appearance so I can stop being a “Little Behemoth.” Then again – have you seen what Jason still makes me do while both barefoot AND pregnant???
