i had such wonderful, lovely plans to drive to indiana this morning and spend a girls’ weekend with some of my favorite women from college, including two dear friends who are both having their first babies just before baby fox arrives, and two other friends – one from each coast. clearly, the “blizzard of ’08” thwarted my dreams of celebrating new life and drinking lots of tea with some truly amazing women. sigh.
instead, i have gotten some quality lazy-time with my husband, and blaze has proved herself to be a trooper in nearly two feet of snow. i’ve caught up on some napping, watched lots of internet tv, and spent some time in the kitchen. homemade whole-wheat pancakes for breakfast! (i can’t really remember the last time daniel and i have made an actual from-scratch breakfast, or even the last time we ate breakfast together) not-so-homemade tuna helper cheesy melt for lunch! homemade chai for tea time! homemade peanut butter cookies for dinner!
baby girl has been relatively quiet through all of it, but she seems to be waking up and getting her exercise now, as is par for the course lately. i suppose i should start getting used to sleep deprivation now, eh?
sweet dreams, everyone!
