It’s a rainy Sunday afternoon. Toad has been out-of-town moonlighting since Saturday morning, and the house is quiet without her. Baker and I will be very glad when she arrives this evening. I will actually be much more excited than Baker as she will be bringing home Indian food for me. I will be having Tandoori Chicken, Vegetable Korma, and Naan, while Bake will be having dog food. I win! Yum.
So, what’s been going on around here this week?
As I believe I have probably mentioned a time or two before 😉 , we will be moving this summer. This means that things are pretty busy around here. Pretty much every day there is the internet scan for suitable rental possibilities (gotta be convenient to the university, amenable to dogs, in a runable/walkable/strollerable neighborhood (read: sidewalks), and include enough comfortable space for guests – this is NOT easy to find), the slow pare down of the stuff we have in our current house (what do we REALLY need/want to take with us?), and the sadness that we are leaving this town that we love. This move is the right thing for our family for so many reasons, but we do love this place. We got married here. It won’t be easy to leave.
Although the move is taking up a lot of mental space, there is also the baby! As of today, Toad is 17 weeks and 3 days along. We had an OB appointment last week and although we got no new pictures (boo), everything looks great. Beans’ heartbeat was in the 150s and the midwife said that in spite of the fact that somehow she is still not showing, Toad is gaining weight the way she should be. We are happy with all of that. Sounds like Bean is doing just what she need to be doing.
I am growing increasingly frustrated by the impossibility of nesting at this point. Oh how wonderful it would be to start setting up a nursery like this…..
But…..we have no house. So, nesting is a bit premature. First things first. Irritating. Oh well, at least there is television. This week we’ve been sucked into this show.
It’s official. We are very late to the game, but Netflix has the first five seasons on Instant so we don’t even have to wait for the next disk. Lost is our getaway mechanism of the moment.
