7 Quick Takes

1. Got to see my friends' baby last night and she was SO tiny. Fuss was 2 pounds heavier at birth, so I am not used to tiny babies! :) But it was nice to meet her...

2. Despite my best hopes, no forward progress has been made on the new room in the last 2 days - we realized some more complicated demo had to be done on the far wall since it was thrown together by the previous constructors. I still don't have a closed in space and my dad is going out of town for the long weekend (a well-needed vacation for him) so not much will happen this weekend, either! Ah well!

3. I cannot seem to get my house in order. It is starting to drive me bonkers.

4. I'm struggling between wanting the next 9 weeks to fly and wanting them to slow down. I am ready to have this baby, but there is SO much to do between now and then.

5. Going to a 4th of July party at my oldest friend's parents' condo on the beach this weekend. Bringing Fuss this year (we left her with Grandma last year) so I hope she is well-behaved. She's been SUCH a Drama Queen lately.

6. My head plays PBS theme songs in the middle of the night. I miss the days when it was trendy show tunes.

7. Heading to IKEA w/ my mom and Fuss today. I may try out their kids' play area w/ Fuss for the first time. We shall see.

  1. I'm jealous you get to go to IKEA! There aren't any in my state. I really want some toy-sorting kind of thing and everybody gets such cool stuff at IKEA. I don't like ordering furniture online, though.

  2. And IKEA's website is horrible, in my opinion. But I love their store. We were very happy when they finally became (somewhat) local last year. But they do have some cool stuff. If you ever get the opportunity to walk through one (it takes a couple hours, really) check it out. You can always order online once you've seen your items.
