Ten on Tuesday

1. No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.
2. I just seem to spend way too much time at the doctor lately. On Friday it will be FIVE times in two weeks.
3. Because I am in the beginning stages of preeclampsia and am now kinda on bed rest. Not lay on the bed for 24hrs a day, but for most of it. Thank goodness I have crazy low blood pressure to begin with or I would be even more bored.
4. I don't really have much to say because I am not doing anything fun.
5. Except we are teaching Lily how to whisper a secret in our ear. Most of the time she puts her ear up to ours. But today she whispered to me that she loved me.
6. I needed that.
7. I did scrap on Sunday and soon will have a very cool project to share. I am excited about it. Just need to put on some finishing touches.
8. But I probably won't be doing those finishing touches in my scraproom.
9. Not because I should be sitting on the couch instead of at my scrap table.
10. Because to top everything off, I have a MOUSE LIVING IN MY SCRAPROOM. Jack (the cat) has found it (and lost it) twice. Finnegan is scared of it. And for the record, mice squeak REALLY, REALLY loud. So nice that I know this. Do you know how much STUFF I have in my scraproom? *sigh*

The mouse is GONE. I got it this morning with a broom and Bj carried it out to the wild wilderness behind our house that apparently sends us all these things. Should I have been the one to get it? Probably not, but the thing WOKE ME UP at 3am with its squeaking as Jack once again tried to trap it by Lily's Little People house. No one messes with my sleep. NO ONE. And yes, the famous startle noise was heard throughout the Taylor house...and not just MY startle noise.

p.s. did I mention we are trying to sell our house?

Happy Birthday Sweet Cathy!

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. ~Nelson Henderson

My friend Cathy is having a birthday. She is also kind of going through a rough time because she is doing this amazingly unselfish and wonderful thing. She is one of those people you need to know. One of those people you wish you could be. So let's wish her a wonderful birthday cause she deserves it!

Ten on Tuesday

1. It has rained all day today. This morning I woke up at 6am because of, well being pregnant, and when I was finally falling asleep I heard about the loudest and longest thunder ever. I swear it had to have been 20 seconds. It shook the house.
2. I have a new February banner, but I have yet to scan it. It will be up tomorrow :)
3. I went to the post office today to mail my final CJ entry. Unfortunately I got behind two guys that were obviously (and annoyingly) very productive ebay entrepreneurs. I had to wait a long, l o n g, time.
4. But I mailed this.Click on it to make it bigger. I feel like it is an instant family heirloom. I love that.
5. As this is one that I HAVE to recreate for myself, I HAD to go to Archivers today to get more of the Noteworthy paper. How can I help it if a few extra things jumped into my basket?
6. Had another midwife appointment today. My extra crummy feeling is (in my own expert opinion) caused by the boy being currently breech. I CAN'T breath and have this terrible pressure in the top of my belly. Anyone else have a problem with a stubborn breech baby? Did they turn for you? I have exercises to do-let's hope they work. Soon.
7. I have never been so happy for something to return. A void has been filled. Suziebeezieland is back baby.
8. Lily had naptime in her big girl bed today. It did not go well, but eventually she fell asleep. Attempt number two is going on right now. I hope I do not return tonight with play by play.
9. Can I say that I am more than a little bit jealous that SOME people got to vote today?
10. I went shopping at the Gap yesterday and walked out with some major prida. (Bonus point to the person who can tell me what that means. And yes I do realize this negates all cool points.) Six boy items for under $17 dollars. And uh, thank you very much Bapa :)

Don't panic! I can still be cool.

A few days ago something happened. Something that I never thought in a million, billion years would ever happen to me. Not me. No way. No how. NEVER. We bought a mini van.

You ok?

I'll wait for you to climb back into your chair.

You back? Ok.

So we did it. We took the plunge and got a very nicely loaded 2005 Town & Country with (and I say whoo hoo here) heated leather seats. Again I say whoo hoo. As far as car purchases go I kind of realized that it was a necessity more than a want. But I kept saying to myself, "It's ok. You can put your Phish sticker up in the window and it will redeem some of your cool." Sad, but I was really putting all my phish into one basket.
So we are cleaning out my super cool sporty Jeep Liberty.
I open the back window to remove my beloved Phish sticker.
A possession that has been with me since, gosh at least the mid 90's.
Has traveled with me thousands of miles with three different vehicles.
I start peeling.
And it shreds before my very eyes. SHREDS. BEFORE MY EYES.

My jaw dropped. I gasped. I almost cried (ok not really, but let's just keep up the dramatics ok?)

But it is ok. Even though the band doesn't technically exist anymore, I can get a replacement.AND I can get a cute little baby hat for the boy.All is well. This means I can still be cool.

Orange Juice Container Predictions

In the spirit of getting ready how about a little contest? Let's figure out when the boy is going to be born. The only correct answer for miss Bridget was an orange juice container. So will my orange juice container win this time?Please note that my container date is NOT after my due date. I will not tempt fate ;)
Technically my official due date is April 4. Guess my actual due date, time, weight, length and heck lets throw in the name too. Sorry folks, when we finally do figure out a name for the boy (NOT THOR) we have decided to keep it a little secret. What will you win? Well, I haven't quite come up with that yet, but it will be a fun little package. Let the predictions begin! Oh and feel free to check YOUR orange juice never know.
