Friday I spent the day with my mom and we did about 800 loads of laundry - baby clothes, baby linens, baby towels, you name it, we did 800 loads of baby laundry. It was so fun!! It’s amazing how tiny some of these clothes are!!
We also got the nursery in order and I am happy to say that it is ready for a baby!! And in just a mere two and a half weeks (or sooner!) a baby will be here! AAAH!!!!!!

Sunday Hubs and I ran a couple of errands and then settled in for what we deemed Karate Kid day. No, I’m not kidding, sadly. We have streaming Netflix and noticed that the Karate Kid movies (the originals, not the lame remake with Will Smith’s kid) were on there, but only until 1/1/2013, so we had to watch them pronto. I forgot how entertaining those movies were. I just love the second one set in Okinawa. Anyone else? No? Just me? Anyway...
For dinner we met up with my in laws for dinner at Kobe (Japanese hibachi, yum yum yum). We had a coupon from Hubs’ birthday (free meal in your birthday month - free is for me!). The wait for a chef table was way too long so we just did the sit down version of the hibachi meal, which worked out so much better - smaller portion sizes, which is a very good thing. Usually we walk out of there eating a week’s worth of food, last night we walked out comfortably full (good at this stage in my pregnancy since there’s not much room in my tummy for food anymore). They even celebrated Hubs’ birthday, again (it was the 18th) with a hat and a cupcake!
This morning it was back to Monday and normal Monday stuff. Hubs went to work and I went to the gym. A little over 2 weeks prior to my due date and I’m still ellipticizing, woohoo! I did 30 minutes and got out of there. I’m sure the people at my gym are like “um, you’re going to pop one of these days” - yes, yes I might.
Today’s plans include going through a ton of emails that I have neglected over the weeks (I have emails in my box from Baby Center saying “you’re 25 weeks pregnant, here’s what to expect” - don’t need those anymore!). My plans these days are to stick pretty close to home, because you never know when something might happen - you know like my water breaking. OMG!
Tonight’s plans for New Year’s Eve … every year Hubs and I get really brave and we go out to Disney for the holiday. Along with the 1.1 million other people in town, we hit up the parks. I really really would like to do that again this year, however, with my giant belly, large crowds and impending due date we have decided to stay home instead. So I will be making a yummy New Year’s Eve dinner and we’ll likely be on the couch watching the ball drop. Woohoo!!
Today is always the day I am thinking ahead to my New Year’s Resolutions, however, this year I don’t want to make any because I don’t know what life has in store for me in 2013. I know life is going to be TOTALLY DIFFERENT once our daughter is here, so to make New Year’s Resolutions saying “I’m going to run x number of half marathons” seems foolish, because who knows! My resolutions have always been “ME ME ME” based, and next year’s resolutions may not be so “ME ME ME.” Give me a month or so to get used to life with baby, then I will make some plans! I’ll keep ya posted! But tomorrow I do plan to go through my 2012 Resolutions to see how I did on those … It could be ugly.
Alright, I think I have written enough for today. I hope you are having a marvelous Monday! And have a happy and SAFE New Year’s Eve!!!
Questions for you …
- Do you have any plans for New Year’s Eve?
