This post isn't really all that fun.. But, it is a glimpse into my nutty, almost eight months pregnant, HOT.all.the.time mind these past few days. (Plus, I feel bad about not posting for a couple of days because of Blogger's issues; and my weekend is going to be very busy. Hope this will do!)
Here are some things that have brought a little joy into my life the last couple of days:
1. Now that I officially have the diabetes (that's what Jeff and I call it - pronounced dye-uh-bay-tays), taking my blood sugar has become a little game for me... I get sort-of excited when it is almost time to prick my finger and then anxiously await the five seconds before my little meter flashes my "score" for me. So far, I'm playing quite well... But, I've got a few "top scores" (well, in this case low scores), I'm hoping to beat in the next few days! This kind of amusement in my life is sort-of pathetic... But, it's a lot better than the pity party I was throwing myself Tuesday afternoon.
|You can tell I'm new to this because I got this picture on the internet, and I'm fairly certain you'd be dead if you had a glucose reading of 5.8. I don't even know what this number means. Oh well... baby steps!|
2. Speaking of parties, I'm planning a BIG one this weekend. Yep. It is at one of the nicest hotels in Roanoke, I'm expecting about 350 guests, and the theme is Shanghai Nights - complete with paper lanterns galore! I have a new dress that totally shows off my "baby bump" and I can't wait to see the DJ's "light show." (What, high school prom doesn't count as a party? Whatever...) I'll post pictures on Monday and you'll see how just how truly cool it really is.
3. And, since I'm in a PARTY mood, I've been thinking today about the fact that my baby will have a SUMMER birthday. Being a teacher, I've felt sort-of sorry for him because he will either be really old or really young in his grade (which do you think is better?) and no one will ever bring cupcakes to his whole class... BUT, today I realized that this means I'll always be off work for a little bit of time to plan an AWESOME birthday party for him. I may or may not have already started planning for July 2012. (I'm sure this has nothing to do with the incredible parties Young House Love and Loves of Life have been throwing for their one-year-olds recently.)
