ok- week/end recap:
- we went to the Jack Johnson show on saturday night. it was awesome. it was a long drive but totally worth it. we at mucho overpriced food & listened to an amazing live performance.
the only negative- the pot heads behind us who must have lit up 15 joints in the course of 2 hours. how can people smoke something that smells so bad?
anyway- we got home & alex was sound asleep & had done great. hooray.
- we bought red & white paint for our chicken coop. we also bought all of the supplies for our baby chicks to be. i'm way over-stoked about these chickens. like- ridic.
- alex is so cute i can't even stand it. i swear, she's the smartest kid in the world. like- genius level. well maybe not, because she smacks her head on quite a bit of stuff- but still. i feel like she learns something new every minute. but she tires me out- she wants to GO GO GO! sit & relax? hell no mom.
- i had my OB appt today- i was super stoked to schedule my growth/gender ultrasound for sometime within the next week or so...no such luck. my OB is evil. the conversation went like this:
OB: "let's see, so we'll see you in 4 weeks?"
ME: "oh...well, i was gonna see if i could come in for my ultrasound...you know, sooner? cause i'll be 20 weeks soon....?"
OB: "hmmm..." looks @ chart "...nah, you're due here in 4 weeks anyway so you can wait until then, right sweetie?" looks @ me
ME: (foams at the mouth & chants magic spells that will make all of his hair fall out) "oh...well, i was hoping..."
OB: cuts me off "...yeah- 4 weeks is good. we usually do them between 18 & 22 weeks anyway so no rush!" gets up, slaps my folder shut & smiles (a very evil smile)
ME: "alright i guess..." (decides to try a different tactic & looks pathetic & begs for mercy with puppy dog eyes)
OB: "GREAT! see you in 4 weeks hon!" looks at his Rolex, shakes my hand & skips out of the room
ME: repents for resorting to black magic earlier & prays for patience. then goes & schedules an appt for Aug 10th. sonofabitch!
so yeah- my BIG u/s won't be until August 10th. i'll be 22 weeks & 4 days. honestly- not all that late. but i'm super impatient. it's a curse. if it had been my female OB i could have TOTALLY suckered her into letting me come in earlier, but alas.
aaaand- that's about it. nothing big & bad or wicked exciting. sad news though- i still have yet to see Eclipse (GASP) but i'm 97% sure i'm finally going this sunday. so yeah. see? maybe i'm a little patient after all...
and because everyone likes pictures- here are some shots i took in May when i rented a lense. flowers & bugs:
buzz buzz- i'm pretty sure he wanted to sting my face off.
