Didja miss me? I started thinking halfway through last week that some of y'all who don't follow me on other social media outlets might have wondered if I went into labor but my phone died and I couldn't be bothered to turn it back on to tell you differently. In short we took a roadtrip to Taos, New Mexico and Durango, Colorado. It was awesome and I hope to blog about it soon. You know--right after I post about Europe in 2009 and Hawaii last summer and Ireland last fall. No seriously, hopefully sooner than later.
Listening To: Besides the handful of movies that Elle watched on the roadtrip? We tried to listen to World War Z while Elle slept but she didn't sleep a whole lot in the car. Not like we hoped anyway. I'm looking forward to getting back into it on Monday. It's somehow different than I expected but I've heard good things so will keep trucking. Have you listened to World War Z?
Eating: Shamefully a lot of ice cream. Which wasn't so bad until my OB visits jumped from every several weeks to every other week. Getting on the scale is not fun. Especially when you know you can't run it off at the end of the day. Current addiction? Strawberry Cheesecake (pictured is Bluebell brand, of course)
Watching: Nada. But Elle will watch A Bug's Life (Bugs) and Finding Nemo (Nemo) over and over and over and over again (on the roadtrip). So I've been hearing these playing a lot. And let me tell you, Finding Nemo never gets old. I love that movie so much.
Reading: I'm about halfway through Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I'm liking it but find it rather sad. Will be interesting to see where it goes. ps, I really am in love with my Nook.
Making: Hexies! These were perfect for the roadtrip as I get carsick trying to read. I didn't count how many I made, but I have quite a stack going.
Planning: Um, still not baby things. Gah. I'm planning to take PTO two weeks before my due date (I haven't mentioned here yet that I'm not returning to my job after baby...), so hopefully during that planned time off I can plan to plan for the baby. Or something. I am thinking about possibly potty training Elle next weekend. Going to just see how it goes. I think she's ready but timing was never good. It never is, though, huh?
Feeling: Good! Around 10:00 in the morning I feel like all the blood has drained from my body, but otherwise I feel good. Oh and the heartburn and barfurpy. I cannot wait for that to be over.
Loving: This girl. Seriously. Sometimes she can be so trying (I was thisclose to walking out of the grocery store yesterday with her kicking and screaming) but OMG do I love her. And how she makes me laugh!
Wanting: Hmmm. A pedicure. It gives me ridiculous acid reflux to bend over to touch my toes.
Thinking: We need to pick a damn baby name!! We are really close but it's boiling down to nicknames.
Looking Forward To: The fall. We had a lovely taste of cool weather while in NM/CO and I can't wait for that delicious weather to return to me in a few months.
OH OH OH! I almost forgot to tell you not to forget that Pax and I are reading The Talisman starting August 1st and we want YOU to join us! I think it'll be informal but more details on that later this week.
Would love to hear what YOU are listening to, eating, watching, reading, making, planning, feeling, loving, wanting, thinking, and looking forward to.
