Seven Quick Takes

Yay for Friday! Yay for three-day weekends! Yay for random blog posts!

Yay!

1.
Alex the Hurricane is being a jerkface. We have a 3 day weekend and plans to go to the beach but it’s been raining for 4 days straight with no end in sight. While I am thankful that he didn’t visit our section of the coast, I’m annoyed that he is messing up my beach time. So we’ll be taking books and laptops and movies to the beach and relaxing indoors. There are worse things, I suppose.

2.
Last weekend we were in South Padre Island for a family reunion. At one point I went into the ocean with Stephen and I think I stepped into a divot wrong. I woke up Sunday morning with some serious back pain. It has been bothering me off and on since then, mostly during the night and in the morning. Wednesday was almost unbearable. Thursday was pretty good. I woke up at about 4 this morning with serious shooting pains. I got an ice pack and went back to sleep. It’s pretty sore today. I’m hoping this doesn’t last forever.

3.
The second coat of paint is up in the nursery! It looks fantastic! I’m hoping that Stephen gets in the mood to shampoo the carpets tonight. While my mom and sister were painting, Rookie was hanging out with them. My sister turned around to look at her and this is what she found.

That’s my pup… with a dot of bright green paint on her snout! She’d been secretly sniffing paint while they weren’t looking. We had an intervention (after the laughter) and she said she wouldn’t do it anymore. We sort of believe her but we’re still considering random drug tests.

4.
When I got home from work yesterday, I walked over to the curtains to open them so we could watch the rain. The second I touched one of the panels, the rod came tumbling down. The screws in that section BROKE. Half was still in the wall, half was attached to the bracket. Stephen says it’s probably from making it too tight and the drill broke it and when I touched it, it fell. I think I’m a super human and I break metal with ease.

So now we need to add that to the list of things that need to be fix at our house. Ugh.

5.
At what stage does a baby in the womb start getting hiccups? I keep thinking it should be any day now.

6.
My bed skirt and pillow were delivered yesterday. I knew it would be soon because I’d gotten an email on Saturday saying that they’d shipped. When I heard the knock of the UPS man, my heart skipped a beat. I ran (in the very very slow manner that preggos run) to the door to get my package and walked back to the living room with a huge smile and two thumbs up to Stephen. He wasn’t quite as thrilled but still said things like “Oh good!” and “It looks nice” probably more in an effort to please me than to adequately reflect his opinions on the matter.

7.
I need a pedicure something fierce. I can’t see myself spending time or money on it though so I’ll probably be doing my own toenails this weekend at the beach house while my dad makes funny faces and tells me I’m stinking up the house. There are few things in this world that get in the way of a woman and freshly painted toenails. A giant belly and concern for others’ noses aren’t going to phase me.

Have a wonderful 3 day weekend. I hope Alex the Hurricane hasn’t screwed up any of your plans.
