Lots of exciting things in the next few days.
Today is my first sonogram and appointment with my doctor for the kidney bean – at least that’s the size babycenter.com says he/she is. And actually I will not even see my doctor today, rather the nurse practitioner. Which is fine because my doctor is a VERY busy lady and it can take her a while sometimes. I hope to be outta there in a hour to hour and half (Can you tell this is my third pregnancy?). Fingers crossed. But what I hope and pray for the most is a strong little heartbeat and until I see that I will be a little nervous. Let’s have a moment of silence for that, shall we………………………….
Ok, I’m back.
Anyway, I may post a sono picture later today so stay tuned. : )
Also, Saturday is THE big blogger dinner that I’ve been helping to plan since what seems like last year. Oh wait, I guess we did start last year. As I type this we have 29 people coming. Mind you the last two dinners I went to there were 5 people, including myself. Five. This time there’s almost SIX times five. Cool, huh? I’m so excited to meet everyone (and see the 6 or 7 I already know again!) and here’s what I’ve decided to do. I’ve mentioned them all in the next paragraph in some form or fashion. Who wants an old boring list anyway?
P.S. the following is purely fictional:
The other day I was out shopping for Stethescopes and Stilettos when I ran into Jill Jill Bo Bill. She was going on about her 3 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and I was all like, “Please I’m a Working Mamma 24/7, I know exactly what you mean!” Then she was Sounding Forth about something else and I started using my Canned Laughter. Frankly, I was a little tired of her Coral’s Chaos and Blah, Blah Blog so I said “I know a very busy mom with four who could totally relate.” After we parted I was a little Frazzled LaShawn but I went on to shop at The Stiletto Mom and found some great shoes! Then I went home to study my Momology and Halftime Lessons and realized life was good. I mean it may be Normal to Natalie but not everyone is living La Vie de Laurie, you know? Sometimes my Conscientious Confusion get’s in the way of living Life, Liberty & The Pursuit, but I try not to let it. I mean this ain’t really June Cleaver Nirvana, you know? Sometimes I wonder Who Put Me in Charge of These People and how much The Strittmatters and when it comes to breaks in this life, I’ll take As Many as We’re Given. I mean who wouldn’t right? After contemplating all of this I was feeling a little Chirky and felt like pretending for a while and Becoming Bianca. Then I wrote a bunch of stuff down on a Posted Note while Waiting for Rain and Searching for my Inner Skinny. I wonder if that’s how the Life of Preston goes. Guess I’ll find out on Saturday! : )
Lastly, I plan to have you ALL link up again tomorrow for this month’s Past Post Parade. Go find a favorite post from your blog from a year ago at this time (or even two or three or five years ago) and link up to it. If you haven’t been blogging for a year go back as far as you want and link up to that one. I’ll have all the instructions and the Mr. Linky up late tonight. Please join in, it’s so much fun!
