Once again I find myself….not here


Wow, this is pretty pathetic!
I have nothing to say for myself except that I’m a lazy, lazy human being. I could take the easy way out and play the “I’m gestating and it takes all my energy” card but I’m above that.
Actually…..I’m not.
I’m gestating and it takes all my energy.
On the bright side, I’m not getting sick any more. Not to say that I don’t still have days when my tummy doesn’t agree with me but the actual porcelain-god-praying phase seems to be over. For someone in this condition, though, if it’s not one thing, it’s another. The nausea has abated only to be replaced by a deep, abiding exhaustion. Actually, I think the exhaustion was always here but I was too busy yacking to notice it before.
Anyway, semi-comatose state aside, I’m almost 21 weeks along now — over halfway done, unless I go overdue, which we will just pretend is completely and totally NOT possible. The ultrasound is a week from today and I’m terribly excited. Getting confirmation this is really a girl will be great and it’s going to be a 4D ultrasound so we are going to get an amazing look at what this little one really looks like. They didn’t even have 4D ultrasounds last time I was pregnant. We will be given a bunch of still photos from it and also will have part of it on videotape, which I will be working on transferring to computer so I can upload it to YouTube for everyone to see.
In non-babymaking news Madalyn and I leave for a “Girls’ Pre-Weekend Weekend” on Thursday. We’ll be going down to Dallas to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular (starring the Rockettes) on Thursday night. We’ll spend the night and, on Friday, we’ll go to the Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum and House of Wax before heading home. On the way home we’ll stop for lunch at Maggiano’s Little Italy. We ate there when we were in the area last month and I had a fried zucchini appetizer that I seriously considered proposing marriage to.
There’s more on which to update but seeing as how I’ve broken my resolution to be in bed by 11 p.m. yet again I will wrap it up for tonight. I really, really hope to do better at keeping up with things around here! The cobwebs in the corners are going to be a bear to clean up!


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
