the longest summer ever

Andy dropped the bomb on me last night that we were going to have to cancel Jack's birthday party. He later amended the statement to re-schedule. It seems we might have a baseball game. Seems to me like Coach may be getting ahead of himself. Yes, the same man had visions of the Little League World Series last year. We have played much better this year, it is a different team, of course. Still, I put a lot of effort into planning this stuff, especially since I am very uncomfortably pregnant.
I have decided not to leave the house with the exception of ballgames, groceries and dr. visits. I would order groceries online if it were possible. I am soooooo tired.

We have a new book reader, the Amazon Kindle. I am pretty old school when it comes to some things. I like books, but this thing is amazing. I feel like I am downloading these books straight to my brain, I can read them so fast. Its also nice to purchase the trash that you'd rather not let people know you read. Thanks to my sister in law, my old habit of reading romance novels has reappeared. It's really not her fault, I just don't feel like putting effort into anything right now, but I am very bored without a t.v and it's 5000 degrees outside so I have backslid.

Have I mentioned how much I miss cute clothes and a cute figure to put in them? So when you see me on my rare trips out of the house, no I have NOT had this baby yet. Yes, September. All summer, I know, shut up.

I have no fabric to show, no projects,no nothing.
I did make two balloons wreaths and I have to report that they take considerably more balloons than the instructions say. Try 4 packs of 72 12 inch balloons for one wreath. The cheapest place to get the balloons is Wallie World. Same for the S pins. I think I am about into these wreaths for about 20 bucks a piece, no deal! How is it that every endeavour I begin ends up like this, much harder and more time consuming and expensive. It's maddening.
I have also monogrammed a few things for the baby boy. Again, realizing just how frustrating it is to find sweet baby boy things at a good price.

Sorry this is so down, but I am having a very hard time being up. I mentioned that I am so tired didn't I. I feel like I swallowed a 50 pd bag of concrete. Besides, the sweetheart that I am married to, the other thing that keeps me going is imagining my little boys face. Hopefully, the harder the pregnancy the cuter the baby. Of course, he'll be gorgeous to me.

I can't believe I haven't even thought about working on his room. I made a half-hearted attempt at cleaning out his closet which he will share with his big brother Jack. I made the crib sheet and still need to line the curtains and make a bedskirt. Maybe next week, we have a few ballgames this week.

Aw, I am so sorry your world is tough right now! Hang in there! In a few months, this will all seem like a piece of cake, or a vague memory! I am proud of your adventurous endeavors into the regency world! And isn't the Kindle just the greatest thing since lipo?!

I am picking one thing out of this blog that I most love...our mutual love for romance novels. And our neverending guilt for buying the trash you are embarrassed to take to the counter at BAM. I always mix in my trash with a little classic literature, guily pleasure and the Count of Monte Cristo. Making me supposedly not feel so shallow. You are making me want a Kindle, I have been curious about them, and I know you love the smell of paper and newsprint as much as I do...
