Ta Da!!

I got the side bar action to work! Yay me. I consider myself a little bit ahead of the curve in most instances when it comes to computer literacy, but this blogger stuff just stumps me. I suppose I just need to do some more investigating and play around with it a bit. That's usually how I teach myself different programs. I just sit and click on stuff and see what happens. Eventually, I figure it out.

Today was really interesting. I attended a baby shower. Now, usually I cringe at having to attend such events, but for some reason, I was looking forward to this one. Maybe it's because I knew that I would know a good number of people there. That always makes me more comfortable. It was actually really fun - even the goofy games were fun - and the food was really good, so that gives it a thumbs up in my book.

The mom to be was radiant and sweet. This is her first baby and she and her husband have no clue what to expect - exept that she was an over 10 pound baby and her husband was too, so they are kinda counting on a whopper. No newborn sizes at this shower, thankyouverymuch.

At the Evil Empire the other day, I had bought some onesies for the new baby. I meant to get a pack of 3 - 6 months and instead came home with 0-3 mos, so I went to Kmart this morning in search of the correct size - figuring I can return the other pack to WalMart on my next regularly scheduled shopping trip. I found what I wanted, plus a few other gems.... If you've ever shopped at the St. Albans Kmart, you know that finding anything is uncommon, so I was surprised when I checked out with a total of $60+ worth of goodies.

Sissy likes to play in the bath and I found this cute bath toy that is a fishing net with three fish - numbered 1, 2, and 3 - for early counting help and fun to boot. She LOVED it. She cried when we took her out of the bath and cried when she had to get in bed. I figure it'll be a fun pool toy this summer as well. Last year, she didn't get too far in the kiddie pool, but I expect her to be a bit more adventurous this summer.

On a scale of one to ten, today has been a solid 9. That's pretty incredible for me these days. AND, it was cold and nasty all day too so even more of a shock.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, no matter what the weather. :-)


  1. I think I have that same bath toy and it is a laugh riot :) Have a nice weekend.

  2. Ohmigawd! It's snowing! It looks like winter wonderland outside... except I'm friggin' SICK TO DEATH of winter!

    Is it snowing where you are? I am so over winter!!!

  3. Sounds like a good time was had by all today! I really enjoyed the last baby shower I went to too.

  4. A 9 day is always a good thing. Especially when it involves a non-annoying baby shower!
