ourboss called wednesday night and asked us for help. another community in connecticut needed one of the couples from windham falls to come help out for the weekend. jeremy and i volunteered despite my massive cold (pregnancy colds are the absolute worse) and we drove up to guilford on thursday morning. we arrived not knowing how long we would be staying - it winds up we will ne here until sunday. this is a beautiful building and there are lovely people living and working here. even though it is weird and stressful to be managing someone else's building, we are really enjoying ourselves.
it snowed a little bit today - just flurries that didnt stick, but it really made me want to curl up with a cat and a book. however, the cats are still in groton. i miss them much more than any normal person should (ahem crazy cat lady). i'm feeling super pregnant (although still just have a little baby belly) and the little guy is kicking around like crazy. this cold has made me even more tired than usual and sleeping in a strange bed (a double no less) doesnt help.
life has been busy and i'm just trying to keep up. christmas shopping has been completely overwhelming to me, even though we have less people to buy for this year than before, due to a name draw thing on jeremy's side. there were those people who were super easy and were done a month ago and those that are really hard to buy for. somehow those always get saved for last. ugh. our priorities are changing and our unique job situation combined with the impending arrival of baby koci mean christmas isnt as exciting this year. that sounds weird to say. next year with an eiight month old it will be so much fun but this year i dont even think we are decorating. maybe not even a wreath. not that i'm a grinch or anything but i'm too tired.
i've got a doctor appt monday and i will schedule my next ultrasound - sometime at the end of january. yay! there is nothing like watching my son kick around on a screen and hearing his little heart beat. i'm 22 weeks and 2 days. in one week and 5 days he has a 50/50 chance of surviving outside the womb. hopefully he sticks around in there til april though - we certainly are nowhere near ready to met him. he is truly just a little person in there and it is beyond weird to me. we made our registries at babies r us and amazon but still arent sure where we are actually going to fit any baby paraphenalia in our little apartment. i barely have room for the few outfits and blankets we have acquired so far.
incompletely unrelated thoughts, i am watching what not to wear and commercials for the next great baker keep showing. apparently the bakers who are cut from the show get shipped off in the delivery truck. this is defnitely jersey! the cake boss doesnt mess around, yall.
