Hi There....

Oops. It's been over two weeks since I've blogged. Sorry. Sometimes I just can't. Sometimes my mind is blank and I am ridiculously pregnant and all I can think of to write is "I'm still super pregnant" and that isn't all that interesting for anyone to read.

But here I sit. At my computer. And I felt like writing some words today. I love when I feel like writing some words.

Ellie is at school and I just popped a Zyrtec because the allergies are here and they are making their presence known. I don't know why the beautiful days with less humidity have to also bring ragweed and pollen with them, but they do. They always do. My eyes are on fire. But the weathermen here in Houston are telling us that cooler temps are on the way, and I will gladly accept that. With my whole heart, I accept temperatures below 90 degrees, yes and amen.

I feel like the story of my life right now is one giant, long to-do list. Every day I cross things off the list, and yet every day I add something on. With Jack's arrival just around the corner, I am in full nesting mode over here and trying to get everything done that I can. The c-section has been scheduled for November 5th so that is really, really, really soon. I am so excited I can't even stand it! I'm excited to hold him and see his face. I am also greatly looking forward to sleeping on my stomach again some day.

On Saturday, we took Ellie to the Museum of Natural Science. We went into the Planetarium and watched a short, 30 minute film about outer space. They turned all the lights off and there were stars everywhere and the narrator had that soothing narrator voice and I SURE DID SLEEP THROUGH THAT WHOLE DANG THING. Yep. Mama fell asleep during the movie. The 30 minute movie. At 1:00 in the afternoon. I am just the greatest version of myself right now, except not.

On a positive note, THE SHOWS ARE BACK ON TELEVISION. I have missed them as the Summer shows Grant makes me watch are all on the Discovery Channel and I was getting really tired of them. One can only watch people fish for crabs so many weeks in a row before it gets redundant. He also made me watch Naked & Afraid which is a ridiculous show that makes me wanna puke for so many reasons.

We have started watching that new show Blindspot. Is anyone else watching? It's kinda like the Bourne movies and we love the Bourne movies. I'm intrigued by the show but some of it seems a little far-fetched to me. But, then again, so were the Bourne movies.

Anyhoo, we are trying to embrace Fall around here even though it hasn't really shown up yet. We took Ellie to a pumpkin patch a few weeks back and got this little gem of a photo:

She's such a pumpkin. A big, 3 year old, sassy little pumpkin.

A pumpkin who's going to be a big sister in about 3 weeks or so.

Sunrise, sunset, sob sob sob.

And here's a little sneak peak of Jack's nursery - which is still a work in progress.

I still need to put on some finishing touches and then I will do a full nursery tour.

The rocking chair is still in Ellie's room. We rarely rock her anymore, but it's still in her bedroom. I've asked Grant to transfer it to Jack's room, but he has been dragging his feet. He has finally admitted that "well maybe I still want to rock her a few more times before Jack comes."

He's such a sap!

Sorry I haven't blogged in so long. I'll try to get my words flowing a little more often. Y'all have a Happy Tuesday!
