    Default September Chat Thread

    I just realized that I've posted twice on the August chat thread, but really it's September!

    What's going on this month?

    For me, it's back to school and my birthday. There is a cake I've been dying to try out, so I decided I'm going to bake myself a birthday cake! Mmmmm.... cake.

    Can I have a bite?

    I posted in it too oh well

    not really sure what's going on yet this month....my dh is currently in Texas on another fire rotation, he will be there for 2 weeks.....I'm just working my regular job, teaching Zumba 3 times a week and taking care of the babe. I may be going down to my parents house this weekend, they live 2.5 hours south of me and my little sister and her dh are going down too, so I'm just about sure I'm going down....my only prob with going down is I was gone last weekend (I so do not like driving hours on end, only to have a day or two to relax, then drive forever again to go back home) but it's not nearly as long of a drive as last weekends trip.....my other prob is I am the manager of a small rental car company, well I am the only employee of this branch, so technically I'm "on call" all the time, but I'm at a point right now where I just want a weekend off. I get paid really well if I do get a call out, but like I said I just want a weekend off.

    sorry that was really long and rambly

    lol yesterday I bought something off of babysteals.com......belly bands! I'm not pregnant, and won't be for a few months yet, but I thought it was a great deal ($31.49 w/tax & shipping for 2) and they were really pretty colors lol

    besides, my little sister (due in March) has all my maternity clothes, so I figure they should hold me over until I get everything back from her

    I do feel kinda silly that I bought them, but OH WELL

    Lesli-Nice Ticker! That is so soon! Is your DH in Possum Kingdom? It's bad. The drought here is just awful. But this week we broke the insane heat wave...so we just need a little rain and I will be happy.

    Amy-Yum cake! When is your birthday? Anything new to report on the house front?

    AFM-I'm up having an acid reflux attack...either that or I ate something that I'm allergic to. I'm wheezing really bad. Otherwise, I am enjoying a lovely 4 day weekend. Yes 4 days...I'm not getting paid for them, but oh well. We went to the Trinity Audubon Center on Saturday. It's just a bunch of nature trails and an educational facility. It was cool we saw 2 giant jackrabbits, and we think we saw a bobcat sneak into the woods. We took a trail titled "Wetlands" and there were not any wet lands. It was kind of sad.

    Today I went to Ikea with my best friend and her 2 month old. Bad idea...it was a madhouse. She is the one throwing me a shower and after spending today with her, I feel awful that she is doing my shower...she offered when she was pregnant and I hesitantly accepted and questioned her if it would be too much with a newborn. She def has her hands full with that little baby. She seems tired. Poor friend. What can I give to her to show my appreciation? A spa day gift card with a babysitting coupon from me? I know she can't use it right away because the baby is still nursing almost exclusively...she takes a bottle every now and then. Any other ideas?

    Poor thing! It's easy to misjudge just how overwhelming a new baby can be! Especially if it's a first. Do you have a mutual friend who might be able to help her out?

    I really like the spa idea. I don't know what new mom wouldn't appreciate that! Or you could do prepared meals... I've given meals from Magic Kitchen ( http://www.magickitchen.com/menu/baby-shower.html ). The recipients seemed to enjoy them.

    Spa and babysitting sounds great! Prepared meals are also a wonderful idea with a new baby! Having a great meal that you don't have to do much other than warm up is HUGE! Another good idea is to get a cleaner (or do it yourself) for her home. You also might be suprised with the babysitting idea. If you have a couple hours, take the baby right after a feeding and she can sleep until the baby wakes up. A little nap will do her good!

    I don't know where Possom Kingdom is ? He started out in Abilene, but they send him all over depending on where the fires are....he told me yesterday they were on the way towards Austin where all those homes were destroyed, but they got turned around about halfway there for some reason, he said he's pretty sure they will send them back that way this week. I hope you guys get some rain and some relief, it has definitely been an awful year for you Texans!
