Still no news...

Well, Norse has yet to arrive home with an elk - so I keep waiting.

I am thankful that my mother in law is arriving today to spend some time with B while I attend a quarterly board meeting on Saturday. It will be nice to have a bit of a break.

It is still somewhat of a survival mode here on the home front, but the pets have been banished to the cold rainy outdoors. The reason? Because when I arrived home at 10:00 PM on Wednesday night after sitting for three hours at a continuing ed class, the dog had puked on three different rugs, all over the dominoes and a little in the hallway. GROSS! Praise God this pregnant woman didn't lose it when cleaning it up. Oh, these are the moments when I wish Norse were here!

In less repulsive and much happier news my 24 week checkup went well. Baby seems to be growing just right and I can officially say I have blossomed into a contented fat pregnant woman - I gained TEN pounds in FOUR WEEKS! Let's just hope that growth spurt was the baby and not just my butt. I wasn't chastised since my total weight gain as of 4 weeks ago was only 3 pounds - my gracious doctor just said I was catching up. It was inevitable.

I am not sure the oreo's are helping.

Have a great weekend!


  1. hmmmm. oreos are something i craved w/ this pregnancy ; ) good news about baby's growth, etc. and baby belly growth - cute!!

    hoping norse arrives home quickly & safely, with an elk! thankful your MIL is coming to help out w/ B. hang in there!!

  2. Ugh. One more reason why we don't have a dog. I don't know how you did it!! My hubby tells a story about how he and his brothers were up before their parents and found dog poo all over the house. They made signs like "Gross!" and "Nasty!" and left it for their parents to clean up!


I love comments! Tell me what's on your mind!
