Now, when I say "pity post" I don't mean that no one besides Lora has posted since January. I mean pity me and pity me now please, pretty please, whimper and whine, whimper and whine. I am sitting here at 36 weeks + 1 day pregnant and I am miserable. Up until last week everything was peachy. All of a sudden the child has decided to grow like a weed. My slight pregnant belly that I was secretly proud of has ballooned into a WHOA BABY you are pregnant. Those of you that read my personal blog (blog.wineplease.org) know that not but a few weeks ago I was complaining about not looking pregnant. Well those days are freaking O-V-E-R!
The kid weighs nearly 7 pounds according to the ultrasound and as a result my sciatic nerve is very unhappy. In the morning I am alright, but then after lunch my back is killing me and I can barely walk. That is a joy to add to my absolute phobia of waddling like a big, fat, pregnant lady. Does it help that I was overweight to begin with? Not at all. My belly pokes at farther than my boobs.
If that wasn't enough here is the real pity part. All I wanted in this world today was to come home from work and take a nice almost too warm bath. The water feels great on my back and the water relieves the stress on my back. Could I get the water warm at all. Hell no. So I had to drag myself up and take a lukewarm shower just to finish the bathing portion and get out. The saving grace of this day is that I had a nice baby shower at work, and my lovely husband is bringing dinner home. Amen.
Not to sound like an idiot or anything...but how do you post the new logo into your template? I am just not that HTML savvy. It is probably a cinch, but I am terrified I will screw it up and lose my blog into the Internet super universe. Help!
And I got snitty at Dave the other day when he said that I was failing miserably at keeping this thing going because I cancelled a few times in a row.
Screw that. The weather sucked. People died. I was tired.
The non-profit is still in the works, somewhere. I have to pick a font and a logo and I want Dave to do a little legal checking over before I get in over my head.
Also, Crab Chili this week! Just wait ladies. Canned crustation has never wowed you like it will wow you Wednesday. For those who participate the world over, this is so easy to make and delicious. You really can't screw it up. Dunkin Donuts has some decent cornbread muffins that I like to crumble in there. But this week the lovely Samantha will be making some Trader Joe's cornbread that I picked up the other day. This is how the world works. I want something so I buy it raw and push it off on someone else to do the dirty work.
Finally, I am adding new links over there on the right. Diane and Samantha have both given into the siren call of blogging.
