Baby Shower Part II, Electric Boogaloo

So, yesterday was the laugh I needed. I've hit the part of my grief process where all I want to do is sleep, and Saturday, sleep I did. I think I napped two out of every four hours, and still went to sleep for another 6 at night. Crazy crazy crazy talk.

Sunday was the baby shower thrown by my step-mother and step-sisters-in-law. Mary Jane (my stepmom) had offered to postpone, but I asked her not to; I really needed the day out. It was great; lots of lovely gifts (aka phat l00tz) followed by laughing like crazy as the ladies ran through all the champagne in my father's house in the form of mimosas, and then, when the champagne ran out, they switched to screwdrivers. It was hysterical, and tremendously fun, and I feel a little more alive today.

There's snow on the ground and more falling from the sky. It's a beautiful day out. I'll take pictures when the sun comes up as much as it will in the middle of a snowfall like this. I'm glad Robb has the day off, so we can snuggle up against the cold and just enjoy the day. Or, ya know, play Guitar Hero 3, my early Christmas present. Whatever.

Not tons of knitting going on right now, partially because every time I sit down I fall asleep, and partially because I'm just getting impatient for the baby's arrival, and everything that makes me think of "It could still be a little while" just makes me irritable. I know, it makes no sense. But there we are.

I'll find a picture of something knit for tomorrow, I promise.

In the meantime, much love, and if there's snow where you are, enjoy it! Alison, it's too powdery right now for a snowball, but I promise I will as soon as I can.

I may get to throw one myself next week. I'm hoping for there to be snow when I fly out to Utah, just not while we're driving back and forth between the folks' new place and the kids in college an hour away.

I perfectly understand the can't-sit-still-can't-wait part of waiting for a baby to come. Maybe you can find a pogo stick somewhere...

I hope your blood pressure and protein problems (also known as pregnancy induced hypertension--from your friendly nurse practitioner blogger friend) are ok. Waiting for the baby to be born is a drag.

So, so sorry to hear about your aunt. It takes a lot to go through that as you are preparing for birth. Do please take care of yourself, and sleep as much as you want to! There will always be time for knitting later...
