YOU GUYS. I still feel guilty about this… well, a little. Merry and I had intended on buying a new travel play yard for the kiddo to sleep in for the first few months, since she’ll be rooming in where her food is kept (i.e. right next to me). I in fact went and bought one last month, but it ended in us returning the thing due to a massive debacle with defective parts and a manufacturer that we couldn’t get ahold of. So, after much debate, we just picked up a used one on Craigslist yesterday for $50. Considering that it’s very cute, in good shape, and half the price of a regular play yard, I figured we did good.
And then, I mention to Merry that I still have a 20% off coupon for Babies R Us and nothing that I want to buy there. He reminds me of the diaper bag I’d been lusting after for months, which I’d somehow managed to block from my mind. And the wheels start turning. I’m so naughty.
Needless to say, the bag came home with me yesterday. I still can’t believe I blew $50 on a bag – the most I’ll spend on a purse even is $40, and that’s pushing it. But oh, this lovely diaper bag. I mean, I AM giving up using a purse for this damn thing, it might as well be cute, right? Right. And we’ve still spent no more money than originally planned.
The to-do list got chipped at a teeny bit on Sunday – our room is in fact now arranged very well, I just need to sort out the closet. And the linen closet is done. But still, the dining room… it lingers like my white whale. And there’s just so much random cleaning left to do, like scrubbing the bathtub and shit like that. Weird shit. Ah, well, in due time.
NST went very well today, the little one is still very active and happy and doing well. I’m also doing pretty damn well myself – I keep waiting for the epic discomfort of the last few weeks of pregnancy to hit, and nothing yet. And I’m full term in a few days! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I honestly do think pregnancy suits me. I mean, I pee a lot, and I miss pooing like a regular person, and sleep is not awesome… but I’m so rarely in actual pain. We’ll see how I feel in a couple of weeks, I suppose. 🙂
