Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a nice holiday season. And all of you who have to take down decorations have my deepest sympathy. Also, this is why I don’t decorate.
Tomorrow we get the first piece of baby furniture for the office that is being converted to a nursery. We’re very fortunate that we’re getting a beautiful crib and dresser set from my sister-in-law, but it has also necessitated an early conversion from office to nursery, which has caused my husband a lot of stress. We’re currently testing the office furniture in the living/dining room and I think I actually like the dvd shelves in the dining room, I’m undecided on the desk.
My husband also invited his mother to “swing by” tomorrow. She’s currently (as usual) on my shit list for laughing at our holiday card. It would be fine if she laughed at the typo, but instead she is laughing at us because we included the baby on the card. You guys, my feelings about this woman are getting more and more intense. And they are not good.
My sister-in-law’s email has a virus, so I keep getting really inappropriate emails from her. It’s…entertaining.
The Cowboys officially did not make it to the playoffs. I am shocked to my core. Not. They didn’t deserve to make it to the playoffs this year, though I’d say Romo put up a good effort considering how many times he’s been injured in the past 2 years. My allegiance is now fully with the Saints. I’d love another Saints Super Bowl win, and watching the Saints break all these records the past few weeks has been tons of fun.
My cat scratched me on the throat last night. I was breaking up a fight between the cats, my cat was all crazy and well, it’s not pretty. And I start my clinical on Tuesday, so that’ll be a nice first impression.
Also, I start my clinical on Tuesday. GAH. This has been the fastest 3 weeks of my entire life. I feel like there was just no real vacation in there. There were (wonderful, fun) trips and errands and car rides and more errands. Only in the past 2 days have I actually gotten to relax and be lazy. And tomorrow will be occupied with family dropping by and laundry. Woe. I don’t want to go back. I mean, I want to try this new setting and I want to be closer to graduation, but I’m really, really going to miss my couch and sleep and low stress life.
I never went and tried out the other stroller this week. I discovered that the store in a town that I thought was close to us is in fact not really close at all. 45 minutes is too far to drive one way to try a stroller. I’ll just go to one of the 10 stores near where my sister is next time I visit her.
Today has been a weird day of internet conflict. And a lot of eye rolling. And A LOT of bad grammar.
I am finding myself suddenly exhausted. I think it’s time for me to retire from the computer for the night. Apologies for all who have to go to work tomorrow and high fives for the rest of us who get to stay home. Have a safe week everyone.
