yesterday was gorgeous.
mom and I took advantage of the awesome weather report to take all three dogs (THOR, Lucy and Uncle Neil) on a long walk! and of course, i attempted to take camera phone pictures while trying to hold two leashes.
this was the first meeting for THOR and Neil – and THOR was loving up on him in such a funny way. we noticed that he kept laying his chin on Neil’s neck as if he was saying, “Oh, how nice and fluffy your fur is, Uncle Neil”
THOR also had his Domesti-PUPS visit at the Legacy Estates, where he got to see his doggy buddies, Teddy, Colby, Jake & Paco. though, THOR was more interested in the Ice Cream than anything. i wouldn’t call it out most successful visit, but a visit all the same.
this morning, i woke up an hour early (OK, i didn’t really sleep well all night in anticipation) for my 3-hour glucose tolerance test – since i failed the first one…. you know, the more people i talked to, the more i heard that it’s pretty common that everyone fails on the first try… unless you are completely fasting, which i was not.
so i was already bent out of shape for giving up three hours of my friday morning… but then i decided to turn that frown upside down, and made the most of it.
I used my time between the four (FOUR) blood draws to:
- Pre-Register at the hospital (Which, by the way, looks like a hotel lobby more than a hospital delivery room)
- Submit The Becker’s in to the 2010 Census… yes folks, prepare yourselves for more Fun Times ahead!
- i almost have the baby blanket all knit up for Baby Austin, which is just slightly late, since he was born on Monday!
and then i was out of there by 10:15am – just in time to run to my car and head to the nearest McDonald’s for a Bacon Egg & Cheese Biscuit… because i’m worth it!
sad thing- their credit card machine wasn’t working, and i, as per usual, was completely out of cash.
so i quickly jaunted to the bank, deposited a check i forgot i needed to deposit anyway, and withdrew cash and got back in line. lucky for me, they still allowed me to order breakfast six minutes past the cutoff…
this here is one happy mama! 🙂
today’s weather feels more like December… with snow to boot… but that just means that a weekend of more baby prep is in the works- yea me!
