Back to the Grind

Happy Thursday!

I'm back in the office today after a wonderful day working from home yesterday. It was pouring outside all day long. I was so thankful to be on my couch, Miss Piggy feet propped up on several pillows, typing away on my laptop instead of sitting as I am now at my desk at work. I even treated myself to a 20-minute snooze fest...the sound of the rain outside was too inviting. I paused Paula Deen on the TV and drifted was wonderful.

Can't do that today. Today I'm sitting in my cubicle with my feet resting on a metal bar under my desk that has been thoughtfully wrapped and taped with bubble wrap by a very sweet gal in HR. My feet are still swollen at the end of the day because, let's face it, to get my feet propped up at work so that they're above my heart would not be a sight people would want to see and frankly I wouldn't get any work done. At least I can see some blue sky peeking through the gray outside.

I got a very sweet gift from a friend yesterday. I took pictures but forgot my camera at home so I'll post those tonight or tomorrow.

It's cruise ship season once again. I can always tell who the newer employees are because when the first cruise ship docks right outside our window they're always the ones ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the size of the ship and how close it is to our building. I'd take a picture but, again, I left my camera at home.

Tonight, D buys and cuts the baseboards and chair rail for the baby's room. We won't be able to hang it until probably next week, but the fact that we're moving along on this nursery has me really excited. I wonder if D will consider assembling the furniture before putting in the baseboards and chair rail...

Well, Amelia's awake. I love to watch my belly distort as she squirms around in there. She had the hiccups again last night and, from what I can tell, she's still head-down. Good girl, stay that way, please!

I found a fake ring that D bought me off a website that he heard about through a coworker many moons ago. I think it was $3 or something. Anyway, since it was a size 7 it was always too big for my ring finger (or, really any other finger), but now it fits great! I don't know if I should be happy about that or really sad so I'm going to be happy about it. I will post pictures tonight/tomorrow. Be prepared for a picture post!

Wow, for not having anything to say I sure did say a lot!

Thanks for linking that giveaway! I entered.

We've been having horrible Seattle-like weather here this Spring. It's driving me crazy. I haven't seen the sun in several days and combine that with pregnancy fatigue, I'm so exhausted I'm ready to cry. I mean, we've been in a drought for a long time now, so I am thankful for the rain. I just can't take the overcast dreariness anymore.

Isn't it nice when the hubbies are so handy around the house? Thanks for the giveaway info! Oh, and I can totally related to the Miss Piggy Feet comment... mine are still fat when I wake up...ugh.
