nablopomo


Because I'm crazy, and because what else is there to do when you're 32 weeks pregnant and totally overwhelmed with life, other than to sign up to blog every day for the month of November? I sacrifice for all of you, though. I'm taking one for the team.



I'll find a way to do it, even if I have to scrape together totally boring stories, like how I went to my last doctor's appointment, took the cup to pee in from the front desk, went into the bathroom, peed and walked out without ever doing anything with the cup. And then they sent me back in because they actually NEED that, and I almost did it again! This is what my brain has been turned into, mush, complete and utter mush.

Today, however, I am able to report that I'm only the tiniest bit sad about Halloween being over. Usually Halloween is a major occurrence in my calendar of events, but this year, not so much. I suspect it is the rather HUGE event that is looming on the horizon that tends to turn all other events leading up to it into not so important events. Also, my mom is coming into town this weekend and a friend is throwing a smallish baby shower, and Thanksgiving seems so close, as do the holidays, and then, of course, the baby!

Not that I'm not continuing to be a Halloweenlover, because I am. I just didn't look toward it this year with the same enthusiasm and excitement. I was busy nesting and cleaning out linen closets and desk drawers and hanging curtains, I guess.

Josh still managed to surprise me yesterday, with a lovely Halloween treat at the office.






My favorite part is the card, that reads:
"Happy Halloween to you and our gremlin!
Love,
Hubs"





Isn't he the sweetest? I'm totally keeping him around! Plus, these flowers are gorgeous and exotic and I've never seen this type before! My office smells fragrant and lovely now, too.

Ooh, I'm glad you're in! I suspect I will be reduced to posting about toe lint (mine or Ess' -- wait until you see how much toe lint babies have!!) by the end of the month... we'll just have to be boring together!

That's so sweet, dear...
And you are truly a halloween lover! Look at the photo in your previous post. I didn't realize what it was at first, but then I recognized it was your... oh God.. your pregnant belly again!

You're very creative, babe...

Your hubby is so sweet too. Hope the rest of the pregnancy weeks turn well.

Trust me, when the little soccer player comes, you will look forward to Halloween even more! It's so fun to share holidays with the new folks! I'm still reeling over the realization that from now on, I'll be having Christmas morning with TWO BOYS! Visions of wrapping paper messes and discarded plastic and cardboard boxes are dancing in my head...
