Only two more half days of school before summer break! Here's a funny ecard.
OBVIOUSLY this is just a joke and not really true at all. Reasons include, but are not limited to:
1. My classroom averages 85 degrees and wearing a cardigan would mean certain death.
2. Chalk is so 2006. Now we have smartboards.
3. No margaritas for me until summer 2015.
Today was a big day in my life. I finally created a baby registry at 25 weeks pregnant (is this early/late/normal? I don't know). I didn't go anywhere and use the code scanner gun or anything because that would be work and involve wearing real pants and being around people. But I do have amazing mom friends who emailed me amazon links to all the necessary baby products so I clicked some buttons and now those things are all on my registry. I had saved a few things along the way to my amazon wish list, because this whole thing still seemed pretty crazy and registering was just too real. But it's happening right now.
Apparently Eric got an email when I created it asked if he approved this "baby partnership". It really makes us wonder if there are a lot of problems with people creating registries with people who they do not have approved baby partnerships with.
That was one of my major tasks when school is out, so now I'll have to devote myself to binge watching Orange is the New Black exclusively. While I've been looking forward to season 2 coming out for quite some time now (it came out this past Friday), I decided to postpone watching it until Game of Thrones is over for another YEAR, WHY GOD WHY!?!?
This way I'll still have something to live for/look forward to, and I also plan to rewatch season 1 while I'm at it.
Read this amazing GoT buzzfeed my mom sent me. I read it on my phone today while waiting for my appointment in a bridal shop and really embarrassed myself laughing out loud. All was not lost though, as the seamstress assured me she could let out my maid of honor dress for my sister's wedding which is 3 weeks from tomorrow! It actually does still zip (I had to buy it before I even got pregnant) but it makes me feel like this:
I'm going to add watch Gone with the Wind again to my summer to do list. It's filling up fast.
I'm having a pretty good workout week. The YMCA membership has been life changing. I've been going to 3-4 group fitness classes a week, and aiming to work out in some way 5-6 days each week total. I try not to have too many workouts where I just chill on the elliptical with a magazine but sometimes it's just so tempting. Running is not so much happening. I plan to write a post about it, which makes it sound much more interesting than it is.
I think we should all aspire to push ourselves at the gym as hard as Eric does. He slept like this for about 2 hours after returning from his workout last night.
I realize most adults don't get summers off (and this is my first one ever, although I am still working sporadically and taking a grad class), but it's still a special time.
What's on your summer to do list? Mine also includes "read all the baby books", "create a nursery" (don't expect pictures or pinterest worthy anything), and "learn how to keep an infant alive". I'm actually already making headway on these goals, I changed a two week old's diaper this week, and our blackout curtains for the baby's room just arrived.
Forgot to add: sorry, I turned on word verification for my comments. I hate myself for it but getting 30 spam emails per hour round the clock is too much for me. Hopefully it's just temporary.
