Thursday, August 28, 2008


The lights just came back on after a few hours of darkness. I don't know what the problem was. It certainly wasn't the weather. Although I did get to test my glow sticks and battery powered lantern.

Tropical Storm Fay

We just saw a news report that showed the storm weakening slightly. But the projected path still tracks near our area. I stocked up on water, snacks and batteries this afternoon. I may even get to try out my glow sticks that I bought 2 years ago during the hurricane tax holiday.

Thanks to the recent baby shower, we will have plenty of baby books to read. And we're stocked with beer for the shower this weekend (sorry Bonnie).

Hopefully the biggest hassle will be dealing without A/C for a day or two).

Busy Weekend

Well, we are certainly getting there with the baby's room.

Saturday: Painted the room a lovely "Marine Reef." Like nail polish colors, you can never really tell what the name of the color means. Marine Reef is a mint/sage green. It looks really good with the white baseboards and closet door!

Sunday: Hung up new blinds. We picked a 2" plantation blind (in white). They do a good job of blocking the light! Most importantly, we picked up and assembled the crib! The dresser and crib look very sharp together.

Next step: curtains.

As seems to be the fashion, I have a new job at work....well, it's the same job, but I got shuffled from the Operations department to the Logistics department in a Warehouse/Logistics merger. We're evolving from separate duties to an integrated supply chain department.

My new boss is very awesome! I've only worked for her for a week, and she has already offered Scott and me Jaguars tickets for this weekend! She wanted to give us the Jags/Browns tickets, but since it's 6 days before my due date, we opted for the Jags/Miami game this weekend.

What a Party!

We returned from Cleveland early this afternoon. Thanks to everyone to attended the baby shower! It was great to see you all. In case you're wondering, we managed to fit all the gifts and books in our suitcases! The baby is well on her way to collecting more books than Grandpa Dave or Uncle Mike.

Oh, and a break from the humidity was nice too.

Big Girl!

Yesterday we went to the doctor for a sonograph. Our little girl is only 27 weeks, but her arm/leg bones are measuring 29 weeks! Plus, she should be about 2lbs right now, and she's weighing in at 2lb 11oz already!! Mom said, "Heavens! You have a moose in there!" Antlers on this child would at least explain some of the violent poking of my ribs!!

Again: a drama queen pose. Scott and I are in trouble...
