I hope you all had a great Christmas! We were able to spend time with my half, Justin's half, AND Kaitlin's half of Kaitlin and Jesse's family. Overall, it was just a very good day.
Justin was on call this weekend for drain cleaning, and for once, actually did receive some calls. Usually at the most inopportune times (like right as we were leaving for Christmas Eve dinner), but hopefully it will be worth it! Speaking of Christmas Eve dinner, here's some pictures from when we got back to my parents' after dinner:
In other news:
-We went to see Avatar in 3D. To be honest, I didn't really have any desire to see the movie (especially since it was 3 hours long, and we had to stand in line for 1.5 hours before even getting IN to the theater), but it was pretty incredible.
- Our tree is down and most of the decor is put away (we usually don't do that before New Year's, but this year was a little different). After work today, we also plan to re-arrange the living room back to its original arrangement. Although I like the re-arranged version much better than the original arrangement, there really was significantly more room with the original arrangement, and when it's set up that way, we could actually fit the pack and play or swing/bouncer/whatever in the room. We just can't in the re-arranged version. I'm sure it's the first child-related decor sacrifice of many. But I'm okay with that.
- I don't know if it's all the live Christmas trees that I came into contact with over the weekend, or the fact that all of Justin's family has been sick lately, but I woke up the last few mornings with a sore throat and cough. Joy! Still, I took last Wednesday off, and so I'm in to work this morning. Thank you Justin for the Starbucks gift card that will get me through the day!
-My sister got us hooked on Dexter. We're in the middle of Season 2, and I've never loved a serial killer so much in my life.
-My 3 year old nephew Logan came up to me at church yesterday, poked my belly, and said very sternly, "Lizard, you need to come OUT now!" I share the sentiment little buddy. I'll be honest--I was really hoping for a 2009 baby. It would be much better for everyone AND our wallets. But I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I am going to be pregnant forever, and that's just not going to happen. Our next doctor's appointment is on 1/1/10 at 11:10am. Here's hoping that will bring me some good luck and good news!
