It was another week of mostly lounging around the house, staying out of the snow, and watching Friends. Not much blogworthy action going on here. But just for habit’s sake, here are the highs and lows of the week.
1) Continued blahness. I’m not feeling as sick as I was a few weeks ago, but nausea has been replaced by fatigue and an unbeatable case of laziness. I’m lucky if I can squeeze 2 hours of productivity out of a day.
2) Winter weather.
For the majority of the week, the snow/sleet/hail/ice has continued and I’m just so weary of winter.
Though the front of the week was dreary and miserable, the past two days have been littered with sunshine.
It’s amazing how quickly I am willing to forgive the awful weather that Aberdeen brings our way. For the past 2 weeks, I have been so mad at Scotland for putting us through this misery; but after 2 hours of sunny skies, all is forgiven and Scotland is back in my good graces again. I am such a pushover.
The pups have been soaking up the rays as well, and the nicer weather has led to much longer walks for both dogs.
3) Encouragement from friends and family about our little jelly bean. This week was when we made our big announcement regarding our October arrival and we were overwhelmed and so grateful at the positive feedback we got from everyone.
4) Baby gifts. My friend Pam crocheted the most adorable highland coo hat for baby.
I am seriously obsessed and cannot wait to put it to good use. I know what Baby is dressing up as for their first Halloween!
Also, our friends Diane and Phil have loaned us some very relevant baby books. I can’t wait to read this one on preparing our pups to be baby friendly.
Our dogs are so sweet and affectionate, but they don’t have too much experience in the baby department, so I’ve been a tad nervous about how they’ll respond to the little one.
I’m super glad to have this as a resource to prepare us all for living in a dog and baby friendly environment.
Also, this Owner’s Manual will come in handy.
Like my dogs, I have limited experience with babies, and therefore I have a slight fear of infants. It’s nice to have books like this to read up on the basics of caring for a newborn.
Do any of you have any book suggestions that I should be adding to my library?Only 6 1/2 months left to study up!
