We're getting down to the wire at school. I took Friday off and it was quite possibly the Best. Day. Ever. Dan's work schedule is such that he has every Friday off, so me not working makes it pretty sweet and we did a little bit of everything that all worked out nicely.
We slept in. We had a lazy morning. I played with my yarn and ravelry. We went out for lunch near the water - New England Clam Chowder and French Fries looking out on Long Island Sound - yum! We went and told a close friend about the baby.
We went to the doctor's appointment - I've gained 2 pounds in the last month, should gain about 4 more for the next appointment. Heard the baby's heartbeat. Found out I can have a hot dog! (There were some at last week's BBQ that looked so good, but I didn't know if they were ok - too much reading / conflicting information)
We (yes we) went for pedicures! I have the best husband ever! And afterwards he said that yes he would go back for more! We figured it out - we're a good team because I'll do "guy" things (go out to the bar, watch him play video games) and he does "girlie" stuff with me (pedicures, shopping).
On tap for today is to play catch-up with the house work we avoided yesterday. I need to work on some report card stuff. I also wanted to take pictures of my works in progress.
I just found these SATees and am thinking I will have to get a few items for my baby and for when people I know have babies. In high school there was this teacher in high school that I dreaded having (and then had him for 2 years in a row) - he was tough and didn't play any games. In retrospect he was one of the best teachers I had, even though I didn't go the english / literary route. He did vocabulary with us every week and Dan (who had him too) and I can still recall many of those vocabulary words- many are on those tees and on this list of 100 words every high school graduate should know. I can recognize the words and know that they were "Mikulak words" but Dan tops me in that he remembers their meanings!
