Two months down

With only 10 months to go, I think this thing is gonna be easy!.... Not.

Obviously, I haven't been posting in the last few days. I just don't have the heart to try to be funny, witty, or  even attempt to put interesting thoughts together. I'll be ok, though. My poor little heart is just sad.

I have been keeping busy, though. I've just finished reading Twilight, which seemed to get better and better which each page I turned. I didn't really expect to like it that much, but by the end of the book I was hooked. My girlfriend, Heather, loaned the book to me, and I can't wait to start the next one.

Kimberly and I have started a book club. It's just me and her right now, but I have a feeling all the cool people will ended up wanting to be part of our "club". Our first book that we're going to discuss is Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. I read a review about it in Town & Country and it seems it will be interesting.

One fun thing that I've done in the last week was my bedroom. I ordered a new comforter and bought some really great pillows and sheets at Ross. I lucked out with the sheets, too. I had found some sheets that would have looked great with the set, but they weren't in stock. So, I went up to Ross to find some high thread count sheets, and LOW AND BEHOLD.... they had the sheets!!! One set. Size Queen. AND, they were $20 cheaper than online! It was one of those moments that I couldn't believe my luck.

After it was all washed, ironed and put together, I think the final product looks good. It only took two hours to iron all that! At least I managed to do it without burning myself, lol...

Alyssa had her speech evaluation. I really liked the doctor that we saw, too. She was great with Alyssa and didn't make me feel like I'm a bad parent.... lots of Dr.'s manage to do this, y'know. So, anyhoo... we'll be going back next week. She said there was a small delay, but nothing to worry about. I think she's right, too. When we were in Ross the other day, Alyssa got frustrated and actually said "Look at da baby!" That was music to my ears. I'm noticing more and more words in her vocabulary each and every day.

No big plans for this weekend. Kimberly was supposed to visit, but now she has to work, so we rescheduled the visit in a couple of weeks. Heather's coming over tonight with wine. It will be a good girl's night, I just know it.


  1. I know what you mean about just being sad. I'm glad you had a great project to keep you busy today, the bed looks great!

    I applaud you for venturing out to try reading the Twilight books. Did you watch the movies and are the books really written better? If they are I think I might just try them out.

    Good luck with your daughter's visits!

  2. Thank you about the bed ;)
    Y'know, I didn't really want to read the book in the first place and I hadn't seen any of the movies, either. I thought there was too much hype about them, but as much as I hate to admit it.... it was soooo good. My friend brought the other books over last night and I can't wait to start the next one.
