Today’s my day off, and I’m getting ready to get up and do some stuff. We have so many people coming to town for the shower (exciting!) and I need to get our house cleaned up! My kitchen shelves are a mess. I have an organizational system that works for us. Basically, put everything on the shelves in any old way and we’ll find it. But I don’t want OTHER people to see it!
So, today Mom and I will go through and try to organize some in there. I also really want to clean the tops of the cupboards and even the insides of the cupboards.
(This is having visitors PLUS pregnancy nesting gone into overdrive.)
Still to do:
Vacuum and or sweep everywhere
mop tile floors
organize the bedroom closet
wash all the diapers to prep for babywearing
put away laundry
yard (that encompasses a lot, but it’s Nate’s job!)
That’s about it. I think by the end of this weekend I’ll be feeling pretty comfortable with how the place looks. I’m sure there’ll be some stuff to do next week.
We had a midwife appointment on Tuesday, and the baby’s at 4.5 lbs. If she gains a half pound a week…that’s another 3 pounds. SO feeling good about her size and growth and all that. We got a glimpse of her little face on the ultrasound. It’s all black and white, and we had to use our imaginations. But when I spoke, we could see her move as she responded to my voice. It was really cool. She already has chubby cheeks!
I’ve gained about 30 pounds so far. I’ve crossed a weight threshold that I never in my life dreamed that I would even NEAR. I know it’s all fine, it’s baby weight, etc…still sort of strange to think, “I weigh HOW much?” I won’t bother you with the specifics…(lol.)
I was hired to teach again next semester, which is nice. I start March 1, so we have another professor teaching that first month and a half, then I take over. I’m really happy to have this experience, and so glad that they’ve asked me back!
Trying to think if there’s anything else going on of major significance, but I think that’s about it. There’s always little stuff in the background. Ongoing projects, things in the works.
We’re “on pause” for now with the cat stuff. She isn’t showing any symptoms, is really active and happy, so I think we’ll just see how it goes. That one vet was the first time we’d heard anything about a heart problem, after annual checkups all these years. When it’s time for her next annual, we’ll go to a different doctor. Unless something comes up, then we’ll go if we need to.
