sunshine & snow
very little of it (sun) and still lots of it (snow). today is all fog, and the ground looks like a snow cone that you've let sit too long. but patches of brown-green grass are starting to appear around the edges!
debating whether or not to cut mine. i think i fell asleep last night going back and forth. do it now? (meaning the next time i see my sister-stylist) or after the baby is born?
had another trial last night. they were big, fluffy, whole wheat giants. with buttery maple and orange juice.
every sunday during our drive to church, there is a road that we turn on that seems to switch our brains to baby names. we inevitably start discussing our favorites when we hit this magic spot. yesterday we tried to settle on our top two. tried.
i am embarrassed to tell you how long our sunday naps are getting. it's a little ridiculous. we always say "if we just lay down for like an hour, the rest of the day will feel so much better." it is never just an hour.
has become compensation. in an effort to justify the extra-long nap, i get my house clean, dinner cooked, dishes done and put away, laundry started, grant's lunch made, table wiped, clean bed made, etc. and i love nights like this.
is going to be the ultimate dad. is a sickie today. i'm going to make him soup.
so i'm getting really into this basketball thing. did you know that brackets are so much fun? especially when you have brothers and sisters to compete against... and prize money.
showers, of all sorts
first baby shower coming up in few days! yay. woke up to rain on our roof this weekend. i haven't heard that in ages. (i think it was supposed to be snow.) and i'm going to try vinegar water instead of conditioner in the shower today. my sister in law tells me it is pretty amazing stuff. wish me luck! speaking of the shower, i should get there. i'm substituting for the afternoon preschool class today.
