Sweet Treats and Swollen Feet

Somehow, it's been over a week since I've blogged. I'm not really sure how that happened, seeing as it feels like time has stood still.

I wonder if it's possible for my ever increasing girth and (therefore,) pull on gravity has the potential to make the earth cease to rotate on its axis and thereby making time literally standing still.

What do you think?

All of that was my way of saying: I'm huge.

or rather....HUGE.

And tired, which explains my absence in the blogging world.

And though it may seem like a paradox, what with me saying time has stood still (you mean my baby is going to be inside of me for SEVEN more weeks? That's a lifetime!!) things have been very full lately.

The past week has been a succession of fun and busy days, what with:
Valentines Day,
Pay day (always fun because I can then schedule payments. I'm a finance loving nerd,)
My birthday (24 feels SO much older than 23, let me tell you,)
Girls night where my friend offered to paint my toes since it's getting harder to reach them,
Baby Shower (more on that later,)
and my 33 week appointment!

Sheesh. I told you it was busy.

Mix in a ton of home improvement projects, a handful of Skype calls, and hours and hours of Arabic studying and you'll pretty much understand what my week looked like.

And now? Well now Ian is on the road to Dubai to pick up his friend, Svein, from the airport. And also to pick up our curtains from Pottery Barn Kids, because every good husband will go into PBK and pick up pink curtains when their wife asks them to.

So, I'm all alone for the night, and beside the slight stranded feeling I get when he goes off with the car leaving me stuck in our apartment for 7+ hours, I'm really enjoying myself.

What does a night in look like for me? Instant mashed potatoes (true that,) folding baby clothes, watching free TV episodes off of iTunes and getting caught up on Grey's Anatomy, skyping with a friend, and going to bed at a very early time.

It's the high life, this "24" stuff, let me tell you what.

I also realize, that my post is now finished, but I never addressed the title that I originally started out with: "Sweet treats and swollen feet." Well, let me wrap this up by abridging that story and saying that I really am into sweets and my feet are really swollen.

The End.

You can thank me later for saving you from that oh-so-exciting tale.

I know the feeling of being so close yet SO far! But your baby girl will be here before you know it!

And do post pictures of those pretty pink curtains when you get a chance, and maybe a belly picture! :)
