I cannot figure out how to dress for the weather here. I hear that it's going to be in the 60's and I think pants. No. This is the WRONG answer. I do know that the humidity is higher here, but I just can't get it down. The other thing is, neither I nor Olivia have good layering options at the moment. (Although I finally did buy a maternity sweater that buttons.) One day I thought it was going to be cooler. I dressed her and I both in pants and a light shirt. We melted. So the next day the temp was suppose to be the exact same. I put us both in dresses. We froze. I just can't get it right.
When I'm driving around like a lost idiot that doesn't know where she is going (which has happened on more than one occasion), I am grateful that I still have a Texas license plate. I just pretend that I am from out of town and didn't know that my lane was ending. ha ha! One of these days I'll figure things out, but some areas I drive in are completely new to me and others have changed since I've been gone. I cannot be blamed for this. God bless Texas. :)
4. Anatomy Scan
I naively thought that everyone knew what an anatomy scan was. I have no idea when these became a "thing", but it was long before I had Olivia. I have mentioned to numerous people that I got my anatomy scan and they look at me like I have 3 heads. One lady actually asked me what that was. For those who don't know--everyone has one done around 20 weeks. No. It's not to find out the sex of the baby. They check every bone, organ and important part on the baby that they can. It's to look for abnormalities and to make sure everything is going as it should be. It is not just a normal ultra sound.
5. Pampered Chef
I strongly dislike my MOPS group here. There are many, many reason for this. I knew going into it that it wasn't going to be like what I had. I just had no idea that it was going to be that bad. I have taken some of my childcare issued to those in charge and they seem to be listening, but there is so much more that I don't feel like I can bring up. This group is all a lot of them know, so they don't know what they are missing. Then I just sound like the brat that keeps saying, "Well in my other group..." so I don't say anything at all. I've already paid for and committed to this year, so I think I'm going to stick it out. It's just hard. The one saving grace is that Olivia has fun and doesn't mind going at all. If she cried when I dropped her off, then that would probably be a deal breaker for me at this point. This is sad to me, because some of the best friends I made in Texas came from my MOPS group. I am not anticipating that happening here.......
7. Halloween Costume
When I chose "journey" as my word for the year--I had NO IDEA what kind of journey I would be on. I haven't really talked much about it in the last few months. A few of the things on my list are a work in progress. A few of them have fallen to the side. Let's face it. I'm not losing any weight this year. :) And a few will probably take longer than a year to "work out". One thing that I can check off the list is "blog more". I have officially blogged more already this year than I did all of last year put together. WIN!
