Â Well, I had hoped that I wouldn’t make it this far, but obviously I have.
Yup,Â today marks week 38, and I’m so glad it’s here, ’cause now I can just move on and I’m one day closer to holding my little baby in my arms.
I believe that, and yet there’s a part of me that’s just a little bit hesitant to even write that down……
I hate that.Â I hate that there’s still that little bit of fear.Â I even had one lady at the store today ask me what was wrong…..I didn’t think I was giving off any strange or negative vibes….but she said that recently I’d seemed worried or preoccupied or just not as happy as I have been……
That’s so weird to be called out by someone.Â Must be what othre’s feel like when I call them out…..Â
I’m just not used to the tables being turned…..that and I’m not really used to strangers in the grocery store paying that much attention to me….
Oh well!Â Monday…If I can only make it ’till Monday then I have my next appointment with the OB and we’ll see what he says and what’s going on from there.Â I’d love to be a few more centimeters dilated, and have him say, “Oh let’s just send you in and get this show in the road.
I’ll let you know.Â Did any of you check in today, and wonder about my lack of posting…..I’m sorry, if you did.Â We just had a bit of a slow and busy day.Â Not that it was particularly busy, but we got up late, and got going late, and then went grocery shopping, and picked up some fruit and veggies from the little market, and then came home and a friend called to see if I wanted to get together for a coffee or something.
Oh, and I went and got my nails done today.Â
Those are actually my nails, but I just got a french manicure air brushed on to them.Â It was only $8.50, and so not a bad extravagance if you ask me.Â
It was funny ’cause after the guy finished doing them, one of the other people who worked there came over and said, “Oh they look so pretty…just like fake nails.”
Funny that my real nails look just as pretty as false nails.
Oh well, now to see how long the manicure lasts.Â I really wanted a pedicure, but to be honest with you I have really brittle toe nails.
Any of you have any tips on how to deal with that?
See, the problem is that if I cut my toe nails, they don’t usually just cut nice and straight across.Â They are so brittle that they will cut the first bit, but then they break, and usually at a bad or awkward angle, and then the WHOLE TOE NAIL IS RUINED!Â So, I let them grow out a little too long, and then have to spend FOREVER filing them down.Â I haven’t tried cutting them after soaking them for a bit, so maybe I can try that, but I hate to wreck them, and so that’s partly why I’m hesitant to let someone else “have at ’em.”Â It’s just not worth it to me to have them destroyed and then to take FOREVER to grow them back out to a nice length.
Alrighty, now that I’ve wowed you with a bit of my superficialness, I thought I share what we did / are doing this evening.
Â Jon’s been after me to do his streaks for a while now.Â I have been too tired, but knew that I had to get it done.Â He usually asks after we get the kids down to bed, but by then I’M SO TIRED, that doing hair is the LAST THING I want to be doing.
Tonight the girls were at a birthday party for the little girl next door, and today had been a pretty easy day, and so I figured that I wasn’t going to get any less tired (especially after the baby came), and so we whipped out the box of bleach, and I’ve stressed myself out.
It could goÂ either way.Â I could have done a fabulous job, or it could totally suck, and I might have to “fix” it tomorrow by adding low lights to it – if I’ve made it too light.
I tried to make it even about 50/50 natural color and blond, but who knows…..I’m no expert hairdresser – I just muck around, and if I mess it up the first time, then there’s usually a pretty good chance that I can fix my mistake.Â As long as you don’t mind that, then I can muck around with your hair.
He’s gone to wash it out, and then if it’s not too bad, I might even atempt to cut it a bit.Â My sister in law showed me what to do, but that was about 6 months ago, and we’ll have to see if I can remember any of it.
Oh well!Â If I mess it up really good, then I’ll take a picture and we’ll all have a good laugh before I fix it.Â Nothing like a bit of laughter at someone else’s expense, eh?
Well, I’m off!Â Hope you’ve had a good day!Â
