Around the Bend

Apparently having a baby in your belly means you must snore like a buzzsaw during supposedly-relaxing naptimes. Or at least that's what it's like in our house these days. For Valentine's Day, S. is getting the Snoogle, which will hopefully help her (and me) get a good night's rest. I think I'm getting a really cool camera bag so I can tote my fancy cam around with me - no excuses. It's hard hauling that big-ass thing around when you're used to a point-and-shoot. Ideally I'd like to have at least a thorough understanding of what all of the manual settings do, even if I don't quite have the hang of using them yet.

Other than that, it's pretty peaceful around here. The weekend blasted us with ice, then warm weather (okay, like 40 degrees) to help it melt away. We're supposed to even maybe hit a big 50 this week. Wooo!

I've also been racking my brain trying to decide who to vote for. Yes, I am that person. Right now I'd rather be reading cookbooks than arming myself with information so I think it's going to be a down-to-the-wire kind of moment in the voting booth tomorrow. And speaking of down-to-the-wire..the Pats blew it last night big time. The Giants totally deserved that win---they way out-played us. And I don't really care, because all the Superbowl means to us is that baseball season (and spring, glorious spring!) is calling from around the bend. Also around the bend--another midwife appt. next week and our big ultrasound in two. Can't wait.

Would you like to borrow my Snoogle indefinitely? Then you are free to buy something more fun for Valentine's Day. E-mail me and let me know. :)

I just all out can't decide on who to vote for. Our primary isn't for a few weeks yet though, so I have time to make up my mind!

I agree-who the heck knows who to vote for. I have so many conflicting feelings about this issue.

Sorry about the Pats, but I agree that was one awesome game!! I would have been happy with either team winning-but I am glad to see how it worked out.
