30 weeks

This is the last day of my 30th weeks, so I'd better post it now. Tomorrow begins week 31, which leaves [ack!] 9 more weeks before my due date.

I'm really feeling quite enormous and am so not used to having a big ol' belly, so I'm bumping into things all the time.

What's been most surprising is the total lack of common courtesy from random people. I'd been told, and have read that people will give their seats for a pregnant lady, or let her cut in line at the restroom, but I have not experienced this. Instead, people are super rude. Last night we were at a ball game and I was pressed up against a metal bar, belly first, because everyone around me was trying their damndest to push through a crowd. It's not like I'm expecting extra super special treatment or anything, but dammit, it's hard for me to move around and you'd think people might have enough common courtesy to NOT press the pregnant lady belly-first into a metal bar. Phew! Rant over.

Funny Stuff

I found Marley like this just a few minutes ago. I love his expression. It's like he's saying, "What?!? I'm almost done with level 8, what do you want?" I love that he's got a snack too.

And this was me yesterday. All day. I finished the new Harry Potter at about 1:30 a.m.

And just for fun. This is my brother. He FINALLY sent me this pic from last Christmas. He hadn't gotten a haircut since our wedding in June, and hadn't shaved in a few months. He didn't tell anyone he was planning this hilarity for Christmas, he just showed up and let us laugh at him for hours. My dad couldn't even look at him. He shaved it off a couple days later.

FO--Longies 2.0

I finished these this weekend. The colorway is a little insane, but I have to embarass Eli somehow, right?

They match the onesies I dyed for him.

Secret Pal Reveal...

And my secret pal is...


She has spoiled me absolutely rotten these last few months. My final package arrived Friday, and check out what was inside:

Nut-free candy!

Spa goodies!

Grapefruit soap and a new notions bag!


And the hand-knit bag the notions arrived in!

A photobook and notepad!

Bib and hat for Eli!

A mini-skein key-chain and lollypop from Ruby Sapphire!

Wool from Ruby Sapphire!

Two skeins of Cascade 220!

And three skeins of Cotton Classic!

Thank you so much Laura! You have been unbelievably good to me.
