Manic Monday

This title is very misleading. The only thing manic around here are the kittens and Alice. Which, really, is more than enough.

I have realized a few things. I am now in double digits until the baby gets here. Roughly 97 days. Unless he decides to be late like Alice.

That makes me 26-27 weeks (and I need to take a picture sometime!). Seriously! I have 13-14 weeks (or less) to get ready for this baby! If that isn't enough to make me manic, then I don't know what is. I have ordered a ton of clothes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and a few 6-9 and 9-12. Just in case this kid is a chunk and is not "true to size" like Alice was. Now to wash, sort, and put them up. And I need to do the same with Alice's clothes. I'm not planning on getting rid of her stuff for a few years (in the off chance that Sean decides to grant my wish for another baby or two).

Oh and for your viewing pleasure, a huge drift from our back yard. It is about 4 feet high and at least 25 feet wide (which is hard to tell in the picture). I have never seen a drift that big in all my life, that wasn't up against a building or something. And, no, I'm a mean mama. Alice was not allowed outside today to play in the snow. Mostly because I have been hurting and have been laying on the couch most of the day...and because she needs better winter gear.

And I am going to say this now...I am already over winter, and it isn't even officially here yet. I'm dreading our gas bills for the next few months. Ugh!

Ha! Jen even said that it was snowing down in Georgia, yet BOSTON of all places hasn't seen any snow. I find this utterly bizarre. If there is snow when I come home, I will go play with Alice.

Wow! Here in Virginia, we haven't seen anything other than flurries. I'm ready for the winter, I actually LOVE it!
