So I don't have anything at all interesting to post about... but here goes.
1. I had my glucose screening test on Tuesday. I assume no bad news because I haven't heard from the doctor. For those of you who don't know... I'm not a huge fan of needles. I thought I did well... the nurse asked about three times if I was going to faint and I wanted to tell her that she had no idea what a big girl I was being compared to what I've been in the past.
2. The baby is still breach (which is nothing to worry about at this point). I've read that most babies settle into their head down position between 32-36 weeks.
3. We have almost settled into our new place. Everything is set up and just the way I want it... except for all the random things that I don't know what to do with and the big stuff (like an extra mattress, a grill, a garden hose thing, an extra tv stand, a microwave, a desk etc.) are all shoved in the baby's room.
4. I love to cook. I've been doing more of that since living here. I compiled all the dinners that I make into a notebook with a table of contents, and wrote out all the recipes so that when we start running low on food, I can just look in there instead of thinking "what do I usually make?" It makes going to the grocery store a lot easier.
5. Going to the grocery store is NOT fun. I've always hated it, but yesterday it was dreadful. I had my list (and I actually categorize my lists now so that I have get all my produce at once, and my meat, and my frozen etc...) The problem this time was a combination of 1.) My back kills me 2.) new grocery store, and I don't know where anything is 3.) I COULDN'T FIND THE RICOTTA CHEESE ANYWHERE!!!! I was doing fine until the ricotta cheese thing - which entailed several trips from one side of the store to the other after already being there for an hour.
6. In all the places we've lived with Phoebe (which she's only a year and half, and she's already lived 4 places!)she has had french doors, a sliding glass door, or low window that she could look out of... and that is what she spent most of her time doing - that and sleeping. This place doesn't have a place where she can reach to look out the window... so we broke down and bought her those ridiculous doggy stairs. They were only $9.99, and they are one of those purchases that you are so glad that you made. She has been spending quite a bit of time on her stairs looking out the window.
7. Jarrod played with the Dallas Symphony last weekend. It was a world premiere of a piece written by Steven Stucky commemerating the 100th year birthday of LBJ. It's called August 4th, 1964. It had full chorus as well as four soloists. For those of you who are like me and know nothing of US History... August 4th,1964 was a big day in LBJ's presidency. That day, LBJ was falsely informed about an attack on a ship near Vietnam prompting him to issues orders to bomb the Vietnamese, leading to the war, leading to the death of 58,000 Americans and 3,000,000 Vietnamese. LBJ said he would have never ordered those bombings if he had known that we were not actually attacked (I think i got all that right).
8. I don't know what to do about the baby's bedding. I had been to fabric store after fabric store looking for the perfect fabric to make the bedding (this is after I've seen EVERY SINGLE crib bedding set available in stores and online). I finally found some fabric that I like, and was pretty settled on doing that... and I showed it to my mom and she said it looked girly. Now I don't know what to do.
I think that's just about everything. 12 more weeks!
