Brr!

Goodness, I can’t seem to warm up today. On the weather report this morning, they mentioned a chance of snow flurries tomorrow – yikes! They also said that the average date for the first snowfall in this area is November 19th, so I suppose it only makes sense. A little dusting for Thanksgiving could be nice. We had a fun weekend over here. Saturday we decided to head over to Danbury and brave a shopping excursion at Christmas Tree Shops. The shoppers were annoying, as usual (are people dumb or just oblivious to the world around them?). But we did get loot for the boys’ Advent calendar and I got some tins for holiday baked goods, handsoaps that I like, and a few other things. When we were leaving the store, it was pouring rain so we opted to skip the mall and head over to Chili’s for lunch. Oh my God, it was so good! We got the spinach artichoke dip for an appetizer and I wanted to lick the bowl clean. Seriously. And as usual I got my chicken tacos – yummy! We considered braving the mall since the rain let up after lunch, but decided that since we all were in good moods, we’d just head home and relax rather than fight crowds.

Yesterday after we picked up Jake from Sunday school, I dropped the guys off at Target while I went grocery shopping at Walmart across the street. That worked out well and afterwards we ran a few other errands before returning home. We rented Kung-Fu Panda (gotta love Redbox!) and just hung out for the rest of the day. This weekend was a good balance of getting stuff done and down-time.

This morning I woke up with some major nausea after a week or so of feeling pretty good. Hopefully Drew’s company will have their health insurance meeting soon so we can figure out which plan we want for next year. It’s such a hassle comparing health insurance quotes, but at least going into the year knowing there will be a hospital stay makes it easier to figure things out. Ugh… imagine getting pregnant in January or February and being stuck with a plan that has less coverage! Anyway, hopefully the feeling will pass and I can get some stuff done. I seriously need to fold and put away laundry, and I need to return the DVD too.

Well, I hope your week is off to a good start!

  1. As you know, we watched “Kung Fu Panda” the other night. It was pretty cute, but I’m kind of glad that the kids didn’t see some of the violent parts (they went to bed about halfway through).

    Looks like you have the appetite of a pregnant woman! LOL! :) I remember going to a Mexican place in Hudson with my inlaws when I was pregnant with Meri, and I swear that I could have eaten EVERYONE’s lunches! LOL! :) Meri liked Mexican! :)

    So sorry about the nausea today. :( I hate that part of pregnancy. I hope it gets better with your second trimester.

    BTW … I think that I have the hang of casting on. Just practicing it now.

  3. Cold, eh? You don’t perchance have the pregnancy nipple problem do you? If you do, you know what I mean and if not… yay for you. It sucks! Haha. We’re in the midst of “open enrollment” too and dealing with Matt’s huge corporate HR is awful. My company of 150 people makes it so much easier. All this planning for the upcoming year …
