I Don't Know Where I Am

So its been almost 3 weeks since I last posted. I don't know where I've been. I have a lot of things on my mind right now, I guess, and don't seem to have anything actually completed to talk about.

What's on my mind? Um.

Well, I have 79 days before the baby is due, according to my little ticker thing. Am I ready? No. We set up the crib and dresser in my office, but we are missing a mattress yet. That's about all that we've purchased.

Got the lamp from Pier 1 this week and I bought nickel knobs to replace the wooden ones that came with the dresser. I like.

I did pick up a bedding set I liked, but I still want to make another. I don't know why. Because I can.

After watching the rates for a couple months, we've decided to go ahead and refinance our mortgage. Yay! This excites me, cause we're knocking off more than 2 points on our rate. 'Course, we'll have to shell out for the fees, but whatever. The payback is worth it. I've already recalculated everything on my spreadsheet, because I'm that nerd that gets totally excited over the spreadsheets.

We also had a contractor come out yesterday to give us a quote on rebuilding the basement bathroom that we ripped out almost a year ago. I can't tell you how much it excites me to get started on this too. We're going to redo the basement bathroom first and then, hopefully, we will move right on to the upstairs bathroom. They said they could start in 2 weeks, so we've been out looking at tile and pedestal sinks and fixtures for down there cause it sounds like it won't take long to complete. Its a tiny bathroom, so I guess that's not a surprise. Yay!

Let's see. What else? Oh, I failed my first glucose screening test by 1 point. Suck. Now I have to go back for a 3 hour test with blood draws every hour. I can't tell you how much that annoys me. I hate this stuff and every time I go to the lab, its packed with weird people. The doctor is still lecturing me on cakes, cookies & ice cream and looking at me like that must be all that I eat. From what I have heard, 2 out of 3 women who fail the first test pass the second. I desperately hope that works for me, but I am not holding my breath. I have decided that I don't particularly like her, but I've gotten scheduled for her again. My 3rd time in a row. Oh well. The appointments from here on out don't sound like much fun.

I did finish a few items that I've had unfinished for ages and put them in the Etsy shop. Yay for that too.

Oh, and I could possibly be getting another dog. Its a long story. Not a toy dog, though. Regular sized. I don't know how I feel about this, but whatever. Bad timing?? Agh. I'll survive, right? We'll see. I'm currently ignoring the idea until it appears that it will actually happen. That's my favorite tactic.

So. That's it. I'll be back around eventually.

Silly dog. Isn't he cute?
