No, I haven't lost my mind. To 99% of the population, a blizzard looks like this:
But this week, we were supposed to get a blizzard. On "Blizzard Day 2011" our weather looked more like this:
That's right. Sunshine, not a cloud in the sky. It was a beautiful day. I think the weathermen that air the doomsday snow and wind pictures on TV are really just lying. So I've decided that if that's what all our blizzards are going to be like, I'm totally cool with that.
In other news, being pregnant is hard work. Really! Think about it: 100% of my day is now spent growing another person. I don't think that's to be taken lightly. We went to Target yesterday to finish off our registry, and then walked around the mall for 45 minutes and I'll tell you what - I was pooped. I spent the rest of the evening on the couch with barely a cognitive thought going through my tired brain. But you know what's really cool? Visible kicks! Travis felt his first kick the other night, and I now sometimes see her kick instead of just feeling it. Like I said: it was hard work creating that :o)
We're in the middle of all types of nursery themed projects. Travis has nearly completed the new closet doors, and we're measuring for new windows in there. Of course because our 90 year old house has to be you-neek, nothing is standard size. So our "special" windows are going to cost about $75 more per window. Special windows indeed. We bought paint, but Travis said there is no sense in painting until we have the windows installed and the trim back up. So we wait. The color I chose is called "Water Lily Bloom":
I wanted pink but I didn't want PINK!, so I thought this was a nice muted shade. We'll see how it looks on the walls! Here's my latest picture at 23 weeks. I'm starting to feel like I look huge!
