Well, no word yet from Ohdeedoh about featuring Abby’s room, but Spearmint Baby did!

Small accomplishments people, this is what builds an ego in yours truly. Clearly I am moments away from world domination in nursery design.


See the post with Abby’s nursery here!

Moby WIN.

I attempted the Moby a little over a week ago and it was a huge FAIL. Like, huge. I had Abby in the cradle hold, and attempted to do the dishes. She ended up in my armpit and under my arm, curled into a weird position, whimpering the whole time. I realized I probably didn’t have it tied tight enough and didn’t want to attempt it again lest I traumatize her more and make her hate it.
So, today, I tried again, this time with the newborn hug hold and tied as tight as I could. Here’s the result. She slept for about 30 minutes, cried for a diaper change, went back in and has been sleeping since.
Dearest Moby makers, I love you.

I’ve reached a decision.

Since the labor/delivery and recovery rooms at the birthplace have DVD players in all the rooms, I’m bringing Sex & the City episodes to watch. The hubs bought me the box set for Christmas; he personally cannot stand the show. But since I will be giving birth to our child, he will be forced to watch my it, nearly my favorite show of all time.

And so, it shall be.

Suddenly labor sounds kind of fun. :)

Resolutions, part deux.

  1. Pay off debt.

    We have debt. Lots of it. More than I thought we would ever have. Thus, I wish to pay it all off. Hopefully, with my promotion and the husband’s dream job, we’ll be able to take care of it by mid-summer. I cannot wait.

  2. Fix up the damn house already.There’s about 400 minor things I’d like to do to the house that I haven’t done yet. Like paint the kitchen, guest room, (basically the whole house), insulate the attic, replace the backdoors, etc. A lot of them are cheap, but I just haven’t taken the step to do it. I’d like to spend every weekend tackling a new project (or at least continuing the previous weekend’s project). We have plans for later this year, and I’d like to get the little things out of the way before then. :)

So, there you have it. My New Year’s Resolutions. And I blogged two days in a row! In your face, Internets.

Another belated new year’s post.

The obligatory New Year’s Resolutions post.

I decided to actually make a list of 5 this year so that I can check back and see if I’ve actually kept up. So can the internets, for that matter. So, if anyone stumbles upon this blog and wants to be a douchenozzle and call me out for not keeping my resolutions, they can. Jerks.

  1. I will blog more.

    I just bought a new charger for my laptop (which Apple WAY overcharged for, after making rude comments about my “OLD” laptop), so I have no excuse not to blog all the time. However, this experience was not without annoying-ness. I had to drive to the Mall of America to get it. And then deal with idiots at the Apple store.

    Me: Hi, my charger broke for my iBook and I’d like to get a new one.

    Annoying 20 year old Apple chick: A MacBook?

    Me: No, an iBook.

    A2YOAC: OH. You mean, an OLD one. The white and like, thick laptop?

    Me: Uh, yeah, I guess. I mean, it’s not that old. I bought it like, 3 years ago.

    A2YOAC: Yeah, well, we don’t keep accessories for old Apple items on the floor. We’ll have to pull it from the stockroom. (at which point she ignores me and goes back to selling someone a $8 gagillion dollar PowerMac.)

    Me: (glaring)

  2. I will lose 10 pounds.

    Most people who know me are probably thinking – uh, what? I’ll just say this. All of you see me with clothes on. I’ve become a squishy, flabby mess in my mid-section. Thank GOD I keep skinny everywhere else so it’s really not noticeable.Regardless of my midsection, I really do want to tone up and be more healthy. My plan of having training for the 3-Day take care of my flab is OUT the window. So, now – eating more healthy and getting in shape. This includes removing soda and McDonald’s from my diet. You’re OUT! Aufiederzein.
  3. I will read more.

    I haven’t read a whole book in a while. I was in a book club, if you remember, but with our only having one car, and book club being a ways away once a month – it never happens. I’m going to try to read at least a book a month.
My other 2 resolutions will be continued….tomorrow. :)
