Week 28 - but no pictures. Yet.

That's right. I wanted to write something but I don't have computerized pictures yet. We'll be taking one when we get home from work. Last week we also got a 3D ultrasound done. More on that when I get the pictures scanned in.

I'm staring at the final stretch before the real work begins. A lot of people have started to ask me if I'm ready yet, if the baby's room is ready, etc. A huge big fat no. I have 2 packs of diapers, a gift certificate to Amazon, and a bassinet that I haven't moved to my apartment yet. I'm thinking that not being ready yet will help time not slow down during these last few months. Shout out to Valerie: You know what I want! I'm largely on hold waiting for that one little package from you.

On the up side, I'm going crib shopping this Saturday. Any favorites out there?

Last month, I got pears. Half a box of whatever size it was -- I forget. They weren't ripe. And then when they did ripen, they all ripened at once and immediately went overripe. Soooo not much opportunity to eat a raw pear unless you like them mushy. Which I don't. Overall, I ended up making 4 loaves of pear bread and 4 pear pies. I was so pleased with how they turned out. Very yummy and good looking. 1 pie and bread went to a co-worker. I had brought in a pie to work and he loved it and had seconds. Today he said his family also loved the pie and bread. I am quite pleased! I can't fully take credit because I did follow a recipe (which I gave to him upon request). Well, I mostly followed the recipes.

When we moved into our new apartment, we said we needed to get curtains. Well, I said I wanted them, then we discovered we did actually need them with a bright light that shines into our bedroom window from across the parking lot. When we came back from Florida last month, we said we really did need to get curtains because we suspected they were the reason I slept much better in FL than I had been. Two weeks ago, we finally went to get curtains. But, no drill. Long story short: we finally borrowed a drill, ended up not having the right kind of drill bits, used the drill anyway but in a different way. And now my curtains are up!


I have only woken up once or twice each night in the last two nights. I love it for my cats too. They don't wake me up and are still really sleepy when I get up.


  1. Um yes, I know, I have it on my list of things to do.

  2. I see no problem with putting everything off until the last minute. I once knew someone who waited until the month before her wedding before deciding to have her dress made in China. What could possibly go wrong?

  3. you could put everything off till the very end and then have your baby early, say 20 days? then you could have everyone else scramble around for you to get those things done while you're in the hospital :) not like i know how that goes or anything...
