morning bloggers hiccup

Has anyone noticed that this Mommy manages to do a blog posting first thing in the morning?

good-morning.jpg I hope someone has! Because I feel pretty accomplished doing it. :)

I’m still writing at night, as I almost always have but one day I wrote three posts in advance and just saved them. When a new day would come I’d hit publish then thus aquiring the next days timestamp and not having to worry about missing a day on Blog 365. Yes, I’m that crazy!

It’s really quite nice.
Posting something written the night before then closing my computer program and then loading up my email in the next evening and happily reading the comments from my faithful friends.

So an update on Monday.

Deeder and I were all dressed and breakfasted in time to leave for the OB/GYN visit, we even got there a wee bit early which can be unusual for me–even before I was Mommy.

The doctor was on time too and was done with me in half an hour. It was good to see him again and talk over Deeder’s delivery a bit, that’s important to me…to kind of feel like we’re on the same page. He said he’s sure that I’ll be OK after Carly’s born, that my ride with Deeder really wasn’t all that rough considering. Maybe just a guy thing to say?

Darren’s friend Jen from his work called to tell him about how work had gone on Darren’s weekend off–they work opposite weekends. She nicely reminded him that today was Open Gym (which I’d forgotten!) so off we went to that after my doctor visit.
He told me that I ought to take Jen out to eat as a thank you for remembering us. Speaking of being nice, she said that she’d still pick me up to go places when I have two carseats to lug around! If that’s not generous I don’t know what is!

I thought that going out to eat after Open Gym was a great idea so Deeder and I asked her where she and Sophie (23 month old) would like to go. They felt like Pizza Hut. That’s more than a walk away for me so I called Darren to ask if he’d bring the carseat. He said OK and then decided that he’d like pizza too.
Fun to do something spontaneous.
After Pizza Hut Darren, Deeder and I went home and had a nap. Darren left for work and Deeder and I proceeded to pass through one of our usual stay-at-home-mommy-and-baby days where we fill our hours with random games and tiny meals.

Deeder was in bed at 8:30, I think he’s still day light savings time adjusting.

One of my sisters called just as I was about to take the dog out. She hadn’t called in a long time and we ended up talking for 4 1/2 hours. I’m pretty sure it’s been more than a year since I was on the phone that long. Dude, how silly of me! Oh well. I’m sure the dog lived. And my exercise video was OK to skip for one night, and the laundry did get folded this morning so I’m fine.

My blogging that I like to put up first thing in the morning didn’t happen. According to SiteMeter no one has checked so it’s no big deal. Even if you had, you’ll probably come back. Right?

So here I am.

My little boy is awake and I’m sitting on the computer instead of playing with him.

Know where he is? On the computer desk, sitting next to the monitor. I know he’s not supposed to, but like spending four hours on the phone last night…maybe it’s OK, just this once.

When I started writing this he was upstairs in his room reading an I Spy book–a new fave. Shortly though he came down, innately aware that I wasn’t busy with some activity that directly revolved around him.

At the moments when he becomes too disruptive sitting right here at my elbow I play a quick game of Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes with him before returning to the keyboard. It works! He laughs then resumes sitting and quietly watching. Good boy.

Um, I think that’s old now.
Now he’s climbed over on the couch where he often sits to watch the birds. He’s saying, “No, Mom! NO! MOMMY! No!” while swatting at the air in my direction.

Happy Tuesday, people. :)


Thought I’d add a picture of the view from out my front window.


Oops. Forgot to resize. Oh well. You don’t care, right? :P

Cold has come back to town. Deeder and I woke to 8F temp outside, feeling about 50F inside. We headed back upstairs and put on sweatshirts and heavy socks. Oh sigh. Surprise, huh? All the slush in ice and the melted snow has returned to a state of solid. It may be months until we see grass.

    Yes, I had noticed that you post in the mornings:) With the three hour time difference between us, that means I can usually read your post as I’m having a morning cup of tea. It’s a great way to start my day!

    Hi, Sweetie,
    Were you talking to Teesie? She sure is looking forward to this quarter being over at school; just too busy and the art classes didn’t turn out to be as worthwhile as she had hoped.
    I’m just reading a few blogs before getting busy with paperwork. :P
    Hope you all have a good evening. :)
