Take today...this is what I saw when I opened up the linen closet:
Those are legs in the middle of the picture...and I am really anal about my linens, they would never be this messy if they hadn't had some help.
The "I've been caught look":
This is where my cat is calling me a rat bastard in cat language, right before she gives me the evil eye and I give her the boot out of the closet:
Speaking of naughty babies...we are still pregnant. The due date is 2 days away and no signs of labor.
I can tell you that if I thought it would help, I would saw my legs off at the hip, they hurt so freaking badly. It is practically impossible to sleep for a period of longer than an hour at night. Last night I had to break out the heating pad and alternate it from my left hip to my groin muscle. Feels like I have a permanent pulled groin.
This is the crib tent that we bought. Whomever designed this thing has got to be a millionaire. It is to keep 2 legged babies in and 4 legged babies out. A necessary purchase in our house.
We went back to the same Midwife / Nurse Practitioner yesterday that we saw last time. She is great. I asked her what she thought it was since last time she said she had an idea, but I didn't ask. So, this time she said that she thought it is a boy, just like she thought last time. It's a 50/50 shot, so we will see. I am still secretly hoping for a girl though. The only reason being is because it is a serious PIA to get a baby boy circumcised here. You have to make a $200 "donation" to an indigent fund for medications, besides what they charge insurance, and there is only like one doctor that will do it and he isn't here all of the time. Sounds like BS to me. And, not to offend anyone, but our son will be circumcised. Hopefully I won't have to make a trip to Guam to the Navy Hospital to have it done.
We go back next week and since I will be overdue, they will do a non-stress test and also an ultrasound to check the fluid level. They will let me go 2 weeks past my due date before we do an induction. I don't want to be induced.
I crocheted a diaper cover the other day. It is made out of Bernat "Cotton Tots" yarn. Really cute. I had to learn how to do the front post double crochet and back post double crochet to do it. It gives it the "stretchy" ribbing at the waist band. DH asked me if I was making a hat with ears. Funny guy. Then, I started a small child sized scarf for the Project Baby Care Afghanistan box out of the remainder of the yarn. I was so excited, I figured out how to do a "center pull ball" with the yarn so that I didn't have a ball of yarn rolling all over. Of course, DH didn't see that as such a big achievement...he looked at it for a nanosecond and told me exactly how to do it. Thanks alot, DH...now you tell me! I am waiting for some wool yarn to come from Mom to make another cover and felt it.
I am just going to throw it out there and tell y'all how much I *love* CUC (our electric company). On Sunday, a truck hit a power pole and knocked out our electric. For ELEVEN HOURS!!! The paper said that it really only affected Kagman, but we don't live in Kagman. I suspect that it was the whole feeder along Isa Drive that was affected. Why don't they have a backup plan for these things? We looked like a couple of monkeys trying to get our *2* generators figured out. The first one never would start, then the second ones pull cord broke. DH got that repaired, and it started but we could never figure out how to get the power transferred from the generator to the house. I am sure that there is some switch that we just weren't seeing. So, we played Yahtzee for about 5 hours straight. Good times, good times.
Yum, homemade lemon bars (from scratch)!
