I had intended on posting again on Friday night. Really. Unfortunately, I decided that this was the weekend to get sick. I didn't get anything done, and I missed church (and the announcement that someone else is also having a baby soon!) due to having lungs that have decided to do their impersonation of a filling swimming pool. A few updates in life did occur, however:
- My brother called me on Friday to discuss his worries about my mother's health, my aunt's assiness, and my father's inability to think outside of his pants (he's a perv, so he assumes his son is as well). I got him calmed down and I think he's going to be alright.
- My mother is going to finally tell the people at church to butt out of my family's lives. She doesn't lack a spine, she's just got an exceedingly long fuse that has finally burned itself out.
- And in really cool news, my husband got to talk to his birth mother for the first time this week. He had always known he was adopted and wanted to wait until he felt like an adult to try to contact them, so he called her up this week (I was on the other line) and she seems like a very nice woman. We're going to meet her after the baby is born, so I'm looking forward to it.
I feel terrible because I've missed so much stuff over the weekend on other people's blogs, but bad health can't be helped.
And now I have to try to devise a way to tell my girlfriends about my baby shower, but I feel guilty in asking people to drive 2 1/2 hours out of their way to buy me something when we haven't seen each other in a really long time. I don't have any friends in town (something that I hope will change once I go back to school), so my baby shower invites have been my mom, my aunt, my little cousin, and my mother-in-law. Man, do I suck.
I am compiling news posts while trying to get some work done...and I haven't eaten anything yet (which is a problem because I'm not hungry and I'm pretty sure that's a bad thing), so I don't know when I'll get the next post up.
