At least that’s what it FEELS like BBJ is doing in there. He must be totally digging the new stereos that we’ve strategically placed around the house and have been on constantly since we’ve assembled them. Kristen told me that the only thing that kept her feeling like an adult when she was staying home and being with Ryder was NPR–so we’ll have to try that approach. Even though I giggle the most at the Car Talk guy’s jokes involving bodily functions…so, not sure if the adult approach there will work for me. It will just have to be an experiment.
We had an excellent Spring weekend–and trust me, it felt like SPRING. Friday evening I got most of our “Easter” dinner all prepped so that I wouldn’t have to work too hard on Saturday when Lars’ mom and co. came over to eat. This was good because we woke up on Saturday to one of the most beautiful days we had seen in a long while….
We took a nice drive out to IKEA (our third trip there in 7 days!) to get the finishing touches to BBJ’s room. Lars went apesh*t when we were there last Tuesday evening and they didn’t have the child’s rug that he wanted. I mean, can you even imagine Lars mildly angry? So when I say he went apesh*t he shook his fist with fervor! He had been checking inventory at the store the rest of the week–we woke up on Saturday and it was the first thing he did and finally it said they had some in stock. Apparently this constituted running to IKEA before anyone else could get our precious rug. It paid off, though–and I don’t think we’ll be going to IKEA again anytime soon. Or at least 7 more days. Lars’ mom (bless her) offered to sew us some of the detailed things that I just don’t know how to do–curtains, a baby bumper, etc. This baby is going to be rocking out in style in his little room.
After the trip to IKEA we ventured to the currently-being-remodeled Michigan Stadium where the Michigan Team was having a scrimmage. Bright sunny day–AND our QB doesn’t look too shabby. Plus he’s from (wait for it…) San Diego! So I am feeling a little hometown pride and connection with the new guy.
Last night after Easter Dinner Lars and I decided to celebrate the resurrection by watching “Religulous”…Bill Maher’s documentary on Religion. I made it about 1 hour in and then konked out….ended up going to be about 10:30pm on a Saturday Night and then sleeping the next morning on and off until 11:30am. That’s right, my friends…13 hours. That is a luxury that will very soon be gone–but I have to think that I NEVER did that before being pregnant so I must have really needed it, right? Anyway.
Lars and I took a nice long walk (6 miles!) this afternoon. Truly it was friggin beautiful outside. I think I even got color on my cheeks AND I had to wear sunglasses. Six miles was a little tiring but I felt very good after getting home–of course, I did just dig my own grave as Lars now knows I have the endurance to walk long distances…
So that’s the play by play action for the weekend. It was very nice, relaxing, and peaceful. I’ve settled into bed and am getting ready for the long week ahead but I feel like I’ve done good by a promise to take care of myself and be conscientious of my own limitations.
