It’s been a busy couple of chilly days. We still have most of the snow on the ground, which is really odd for the south. Usually it’s all melted by the next day. Thursday we went out sledding- so much fun! That evening I cuddled up on the couch and read a good bit of Catch Me If You Can for my book club. I had to drive J to and from work (his car doesn’t handle well in icy conditions), so that was a bit of an adventure. You see, quite a few people here don’t realize that you should use added caution when travelling on snow and ice. So you spend a good bit of your time trying to avoid the speedsters.
Yesterday I mailed my swap box (which is just plain fabulous- a lucky girl will be enjoying quite a swank collection of goods in 3-4 days), and also mailed a package to Rachel including Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Gotta love being able to swap books with your friends. Beats the waitlist at the library any day! Then we shopped for J’s dad’s birthday present, had dinner out and came back home to watch Minority Report.
I’ve been all caught up in reporting the weather lately that I’ve forgotten to mention a few things: Sunday I was able to finally have some time to sit down and scrapbook for the afternoon with my friend Stacey. We had a lot of fun and were able to get a lot of work done. And I was finally able to use my cool sticker machine Rachel gave me for Christmas. It works great!
That night I went to my sister’s to see the work she’s done on the nursery. I can’t believe she’s due so soon (April 4th). The nursery is adorable. I’d post pictures but I’m having issues with my picture hosting right now. They’re waiting to find out the sex of the baby when it’s born which is what I want to do (if we ever get pregnant- come on uterus!). J was shocked when I told him. He says “I want to know what I’m getting into!” Ok…we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. The whole baby thing brought up a friendly debate at a birthday dinner for my friend Michelle the other night. Sara (my sister) and Michelle think that lavender is too girly of a color for a newborn baby boy. Amy & I think it’s just fine because, well, it’s just a baby. I don’t get it. How can you send “the wrong message” if your baby boy is wearing lavender?
On an entirely different note, I’ve started selling stuff on Ebay! I’m so excited! We’re starting small, with a couple of items, but soon I’m sure I’ll be running a huge Ebay empire!
