News of No Consequence

Alternate Title: I Have Nothing Important To Say, And So I Shall Make A List.

  • I should hear back about my glucose tolerance test sometime today.
  • Christmas shopping is done. YAY. Waiting for the nice UPS man to deliver the rest of the gifts, so I can have one big marathon wrapping session.
  • I spent nearly $100 on stocking stuff yesterday. Yikes. I was buying for Wendy, James, my brother, my sis-in-law, and my nephew. When stuffing stockings, adults are much more difficult. And the $1 section at Target was pretty much empty - that's what I get for waiting until right before Christmas.
  • Santa will be good to Wendy this year, but not TOO good. We don't want her to grow up getting gifts in excess; most of the things she's getting this year are ones we saved from last year.
  • I realized I will have to be sneakier next year. Wendy is already very observant; after another year, she'll be able to read through my code-words & find my hiding places.
  • Jumping Bean is definitely moving now. Not regularly, not all the time, but little bumps & jumps here & there. We should have our BIG ultrasound in less than 4 weeks. YAY!
  • On Thursday & Friday last week, we had a great reunion of college friends - my roommate, our suitemate, and their hubbies & children. We all stayed up WAY too late, ate WAY too much, and talked and talked and talked. They're just about my favorite people on the planet. (Also - a seven year old, when cooped up indoors for 48 hours due to rainy weather, becomes extremely annoying. Even when she's trying to be good.)
That's all I have! Wasn't it fascinating? Today's agenda: muddle through until naptime, then sleep as long as Wendy sleeps. I'm still recovering from our ridiculous late nights with friends!

I went Christmas shopping tonight for the first time in a few years. Last year I took my son who was 2 and he opened up the Thomas the Train track when he was in the car. Fortunately, it was a surprise on Christmas day. I knew I would not be so fortunate this year.

He recognizes the signs of Christmas--trees, lights, presents, etc. But it's hard since that's not the reason for the season, just the tradition.
