Weather AGAIN! Random post about my day

Chicago is once again plunged into a bevy of winter weather activity! It stinks. Big Guy and I were in traffic for two and a half hours today on the way to work. As soon as I got into the office I felt like it was time to leave again for my 11:30 doctor appointment.

On that front, it looks like everything is tracking correctly and everything seems normal. Baby's head is down- which was no surprise to me since I think I feel it sometimes- and he seems like the right size! I am a different story. I have gained almost 10 lbs in the past two weeks! my pants are actually a bit snug now in the rear and they have been baggy and saggy the whole time! I know that the last 4 weeks of pregnancy is not the time to worry about being thin, but you just hate to see that scale jump so much!

Additionally, Big guy and I watched an instructional DVD last night about how to work our new Canon 50D. I know this makes us complete dorks, but it is a really informative DVD, it isn't boring and the whole things actually explains all of the tricky stuff like aperture and depth of field and shutter speed in a way that you can absorb. If anyone has a Canon that they would like to learn more about I would recommend the series of instructional DVDs- I am pretty sure he has them for all the different models and I think it was around $20. This is MUCH cheaper than some of the very expensive classes that are out there. I am really enjoying learning about this, and hope that it can be a mini hobby for Big guy and me.

Tomorrow is supposed to be really cold here and we have relaxed start times and departure times at work so that we can avoid the cold and stay safe on the roads- Big Guy just called and told me about a deal at whole foods where you get pizza on Wednesday nights for $11 or something like that. Last night there was a deal for a whole chicken for $5 and we stopped to get that- it was pretty good, but all I got was one breast and Big Guy ate the whole rest of the chicken!!! Does that seem right! I am the one who is eating for me and the baby- I should get more food! Big guy is such a human garbage disposal sometimes. I suppose I shouldn't complain-I made myself a whole huge plate of broccoli and he did buy me chocolate gelato which I very much enjoyed.

Sorry about the random post- I wasn't overly inspired today and just felt like rambling. i hope everyone is staying warm!

(By the way- message for Well I do Declare- I can't get into your blog- you may have to resend my invite if it is not too much trouble.)

I laughed out loud when I read your comment!! Your husband is too kind.

The crazy thing about the woman at work is that she is in the same circle of coworkers as I am and I think that she means no harm. Or at least I am telling myself that. I think a lot of it has to do with insecurity. Knowing everyone has my back makes me feel wonderful!

Your day yesterday was nearly the same as the time I made it in to the office, I was barely able to get anything done before it was time to leave for my OB appt. Honestly, with this weather, we should all be staying home!

Happy New Year! The nursery looks so nice! So excited for you.

I'm SO over the weather... I sat in a towncar on the way to the Celine Dion concert... it took us 3 1/2 hours from Lake Forest to the UC. Crazy! I actually Drove All Night, how appropriate!

Love the rotisserie chicken night at Whole Foods! Can't beat it!
