Where Can I Get Me Some Of That?


Ahhhh, who needs cocaine, steroids, or Methylenedioxymethamphetamine? I've found something WAY better than any of those nasty things. It's a very nice drug called SUNSHINE!!!
Woohoo, the sun is here. And I feel as if I've been given some kind of miracle pill that gives me super human energy. Or, it would be super human if you were to consider my rainy day laziness as normal human behavior. For the past 2 days I've been cooking, I've been cleaning, I've been putting on makeup... and I have just woken up to the most brilliant morning sunshine I've seen all year. Oh yeah, things are gonna be good today!
AND, starting tomorrow around 11:30am, I get my slaves back. Oh wait, I meant to say: my two oldest children will be done with school and we can spend lots of time together. If the sun will stick around we can actually get this party started that I like to call summer. We have a whole posterboard covered with summer activities and goals that we need to get goin' on (and I just found this addicting site full of awesome activities to do with kids), and there is this little business of bringing another human being into the world that needs to get taken care of, too.

I keep getting asked to post a preggo photo of myself and I've finally decided to acquiesce. Happy now? I should have taken a picture of my feet too. Last night Mr. Hot was rubbing my feet and was shocked at how tight my skin was, I was shocked that he wasn't shocked about the fact that my ankles were triple in size (shows how often he rubs my feet). Just 11 more days till I go on a major drinking binge of castor oil. =)
I was browsing through some of my much earlier blog posts looking for a recipe and it amazed me how much wittier and better written those old posts were, you know, back when I had "full" use of my brain. Will I ever get those brain cells back? *Sigh,* only time will tell.

HAPPY MONDAY!

Aren't you cute!! I hope the next 11 days go quickly.

I had a Fudge Drumstick last night (my first in years) and thought of you:-)

Michal said...

look how cute you are!
i'm so glad that you have sunshine. it is a happy drug, isn't it?
i can't believe how much you want to accomplish this summer with a new baby. i'm such a post partum wimp. hoping to overcome that with my next baby, especially since i'm homeschooling now.
oh, and congrats on getting your slave labor back in the house. :)

Lisa said...

Aww! So cute! Happy sunshine soaking!

cellista said...

I think you look great!! Sorry about the ankles though. It will be over soon!

Happy Monday and happy summer! We're starting summer today.

Sonja said...

I agree! You look great! and your posts are fantastic, despite the "missing brain cells." I know what you mean about sunshine...it makes a world of difference! Hope the next 11 days continue to be filled with sunshine and happy thoughts. :)

LaDonnaMobile said...

HOLY BELLY! I mean, your legs and arms are so skinny--that must be a big buddah baby you've got in there! I'm betting he'll be a nine-pounder like Sweet Terror!

P.S. I hate you for not having a fat face! no fair!

Charlotte said...

Yay for sunshine!! Glad the weather is finally coming around. I def. don't miss that about Seattle. And your pic is DARLING!

CC said...

Our students are out tomorrow at noon too! Of course that means, I still have a few more days to go.....

Isn't the sun glorious! Hurray!

An Ordinary Mom said...

11 more days? Congratulations :) !! Did you get your hospital bag packed yet? I still need to do that. Too bad it just can't get done by talking about it.

Cute picture of you!

This sunshine the last few days has been very therapeutic. I hope it is around to stay.

Magirk said...

YAY for the sun, but so sorry about the ankles. :(

Nice picture!

And, Oh My Gosh, I took castor oil to induce labor for our first child, who was a mere 8 days overdue, while her Momma was TERRIBLY uncomfortable and EXCESSIVELY emotionally unstable.

Oh how I would love a foot rub.....

Back to reality! Good luck for the next few days. :) I hope all goes well.

Leslie said...

OK Ice Cream...just make sure you are not in labor when you are drinking the castor oil. That's what my mommy did with me...the good news is that is makes for a great story...I had such an exciting birth. :)

Erika said...

11 days to go, eh? I was 11 days late with Scotty. I tried EVERYTHING imaginable on this planet. Hopefully the castor oil works for you.

kay said...

come visit me if you want sun! we have so much of it we can't go outside!! :)

you look adorable!! have mr.hot rub your feet every night!! you deserve it!

Amy Y said...

11 days! That's not very far away! You look awesome...

And I know what you mean about the sun... that's one of the biggest reasons I love Denver ~ 300 days of sun a year!

Laura said...

You are a hot prego lady. Too bad y'all aren't gonna see a pic of me on my blog!!! Just picture a beluga whale with my head, and thar yuh go!

Annie said...

DAHLING YOU'RE LOVELY! And such skinny legs too! LOL. Really, you look smashing. Pregnancy agrees with you :)

Laurie said...

I am living in Central America, where the rainy season has begun. Someone reminded me to make an extra effort to get sun, and you bet, it's better than drugs. Good luck with the baby. And don't forget to try some Honduran ice cream someday. Sarita was my choice today, that's the brand. I tried vanilla with chocolate bits. Dos Pinos still is better.

Amy said...

The sun is the best drug, don't you think? You look great btw! =)

Jane Hamilton said...

Hey, you look cute!

Merrianne & Spencer said...

You look so cute! Pregnant Bellies always look adorable on other women! :)

Shannon said...

I know what you mean about the sunshine. We finally had some here yesterday. Last week, I actually woke up to snow- in June. I thought I was going to start crying.

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

You look fab, dear :)

Manager Mom said...

You are a cute little preggie that's for sure! I tried to get a little sun the other day and just torched my back. I have the pigment level of an albino. *sigh*

elena jane said...

hope the days pass quickly for you and the sun stays out (but not so much of the heat, if you're like me and hate that and being pg)....rofl @ the slave labour returning ;-) i'm happy to have a regular babysitter at home ;-)

BEN EATON said...

I believe that the super human power that you are talking about in that post is called "PINKEY POWER".

just jamie said...

Okay, you're frickin' adorable pregnant. I'm not feeling sorry for you anymore.
