I thought I’d have the day “off” and get to sleep in since Finn is out of school today. Instead he desperately wanted to go to storytime at the library, so we had to get up early anyway to take Chris to work so we could have the car. I suppose I should be happy that he is that interested in storytime. Real coffee would probably improve my mood a bit, except for the part where my heart tries to leap out of my chest. Thank you pregnancy hormones.
We’ve been enjoying Central Market‘s free live music concerts on their patio lately. They even have a pretty nice playground for the kiddos so Finn can play if he gets bored with the music. Last night was Poo Live Crew, a cheesy but really fun cover band. Tonight it’s a Beetles cover band, so we may have to make a trip back there to check it out.

This last picture is probably just a little mean. I talked with my mom yesterday and found out that their “good” price for gas was about $3.24/ gallon. Here’s ours:
Doctor’s appointment went well today. I did get an antibiotic since my ickiness seems to be leaving normal allergy junk territory and moving toward an all out sinus infection. I hope it works, because I think all the OTC crap that is okay for pregnant women to take is nothing but a bunch of placebos. Seriously. Except for a neti pot. Those things are awesome for sinus congestion. For those of you who aren’t familiar with neti pots, I won’t gross you out with the details here. I’ll let google do that for me. Trust me, though, as weird and disgusting as it sounds, it’s worth it. They will help when nothing else will.
The baby’s heartbeat is still above 160. I think it was 163. I can’t believe I already forgot the exact number. I think the snot is eating my brain. For those who believe that old wives tale, there’s still time to vote boy or girl in my poll to the right.
I suppose I should post a photo or two so you can see how I’m carrying and whatnot, but honestly there’s not much to see yet, I’m always the one behind the camera when it comes to taking pictures and I’m too lazy to set up the tripod. Maybe I can get Chris to do it later. Finn would love to do it, but I’m afraid all you’d get is a blurry blob.
I’m off to try to do something productive before I need to pick up the boys. Or take a nap. One of the two.
I am so glad Fall is officially here. Yes, it’s still going to be in the 90s this afternoon, but at least our evenings are cooler and the mornings are consistently below 80 degrees. And it hasn’t been over 100 degrees in at least a week, I think.

Also, we have about two weeks until we get to find out if this baby is another Christopher clone or a little lady to help me balance out the testosterone. If s/he cooperates, that is. With Finn, I didn’t want to know at first, but ended up finding out at a later ultrasound anyway. Since I want to know this time, I fully expect my child to be difficult about it.
Anyway, on the right side of the blog there’s a poll. The voting closes at 9AM on Oct. 13. If you guess right, you’ll win the privilege of the first diaper change. Or something less disgusting. Hmmm, how about a high-five? Okay, so there’s no real prize other than the satisfaction of getting to say “I told you so.” But that’s pretty good, right?
My boys kite flying on Labor Day weekend. We found that kite at Thrift Town for five bucks. Best. kite. EVER. Even though the wind was unsteady, once Chris got it in the air, it would fly for five minutes at a time. Finn was even able to keep it in the air fairly easily.
