Snow again!

Garg...I was suppose to work today. It started snowing again last night and this morning we had three inches at our house. Evan couldn't get the car down the hill so he called his brother (who we were suppose to pick up) and asked if he needed to go...apparently he did so Evan walked down our hill to meet him (Justin also has chains for his car.) . I did not go because Evan decided that he didn't want me driving down I-5 to MY job if it was hazardous at all and even if it wasn't he thought it was a "unnecessary risk" for me to be in the car on 47 (our very twisty main road out) down to the highway.

Sort of sweet how he protects me like that...course it shoud be pointed out that if I wasn't pregnant with his son, he might not be quite so protective...but maybe not, maybe he would have said the same thing.

I kind of am mad I don't get to work though. On the other hand I slept pretty badly last night, I am losing my voice, my cough is getting worse and I have a very full weekend. So perhaps it is best that I didn't. I am trying to decide whether I will try and accomplish anything today or not. With the way I feel at the moment I sort of just want to spend the day curling up with my fuzzy robe, a cup of tea, a book and movies. Blah...but I still have mopping in the kitchen and living room, cleaning the bathroom, and cleaning our room to do before my baby shower on Sunday.

In the meantime, something a little less mundane...I keep having very weird, very vivid dreams. Which I think is more disturbing to my sleep than the having to get up and pee every few hours...of course it could be both.

getting closer...

Yesterday we got a crib for free from craigslist! Yea! I am quite excited because it is the first piece of major baby furniture we have gotten so far. I also bought a couple pairs of slip on shoes because it is getting difficult to bend over and tie tennis shoes.

I feel like I am almost ready for Liam to be born. Even though he has two and 1/2 more months to go before he is fully baked. I am getting very impatient, I have gained about 10 pounds and I am wondering how much more I am going to gain. I get tired really fast and all the muscles and tendons around my belly are stretching and driving me nuts. People keep telling me how good I look and how tiny I am but I feel big and lumbering. Oh well...

I will have my first shower this coming weekend and then we can totally start outfiting the nursery. That will be so thrilling...I will be able to go in and look at the crib and fold and refold and organize and reorganize his clothes and blankets. Rearrange all the toys...It will be SOOO fun!
But for now, it is a nice day outside and so Evan and I are going to the park to take pitcures and play with the dog before painting the hallway. We will have our bedroom and the hallway done for the shower, but not the nursery or the living room/kitchen or bathroom yet. We will do the nursery in March and HOPEFULLY the living room/kitchen in April. No idea when the bathroom will get done....sort of low priority right now...
