My Boring Life

Well, it snowed here last night (and today). Supposedly we were going to get 6-8 inches, but it looks like about one to me. I am currently trying to avoid the kid who walks around the neighborhood asking if we want him to shovel the driveway for $15.

I had my first OB appt. yesterday. We got to see the baby, they did a little ultrasound. He is CUTE. Well really he's a little blobby thing, but still cute. His arms were up by his head, and while we were watching he moved his little head to the side. And the dr. who examined me was from Niceville, she graduated from NHS in 1996. How weird is that. I know that a pelvic exam isn't generally the best time for small talk, but we had a good time.

I think you guys knew that Daddy was here a couple of weeks ago. I got to go to the Air Force Museum. Woo hoo. I swear, the smell of those old airplanes gives me a massive headache. Other than that we didn't do much, Adam and Daddy went to the museum alone on Saturday and spent the whole day there (I only had to survive 4 hours one afternoon). I felt bad for Daddy, I was pretty boring because I felt so sick all the time (and still do). But he was a champ and changed Asher's poopy diapers for me (he poops at 10:00 am, on the dot, every day). What a nice guy.

I also wanted to show you guys a couple of blogs that our cousins have...Bill(y) Farley is apparently in Italy for the semester and he and his girlfriend (she's there too) have a blog, it's pretty interesting. http://jessbillflorence.blogspot.com/ And Paloma has one too but I can't find it right now, so I'll get back to you with it.

There. My boring life. Eat it up.

You know, there are these two kids who live on our street that like to come around during the summer and wash people's cars for whatever amount of money they're offered.

watch "him" be a girl:) "He" would then not appreciate the first few months of this blog.

Adena, thanks for the clothes! They're a little small for me though- I think I'm gonna try them on Julian instead. HAW HAW HAW HAW I'm so funny!!!!!!!!

Adena said...

Hi-larious. And you're welcome.

You know, Shannon, isn't it weird that there are people out there our age who have MDs and PhDs? If we weren't such baby-having slackers, we could have one too.

Shannon said...

Well, if being a baby-having slacker is wrong, then I don't want to be right. And who wants a stinky old PhD anyway.

Actually, having babies is no easy task - before or after! It's at least 18 years committed to the nurture of another human being, so it's not about being a slacker.
It seems to me that the slackers are the ones who have babies and go to work instead of taking care of them; they get off easy and leave all the hard work - the day-to-day work - up to someone else. I'm glad each of you has the opportunity to stay home while your babies are young because that time is the most critical for developing them.
