happy 3rd trimester!

It's official. I'm in the third trimester (28 weeks)... yay!

But, that means there is a lot for me to do and less and less time for me to do it in. Remember that list I made a few weeks back? yeah, haven't really touched on it much... I need to buckle down and get to it, but some of the things involve moving heavy objects and JT has been swamped lately, so I feel bad asking for his help when he has so much going on.

anyway, the countdown is on... 11 weeks or less until baby shows up. Though, I think it'll be early. Cross your fingers this kiddo is fully cooked when deciding to come out.

Monster turned 2 yesterday. She is getting so old! We had a little party with family on Saturday and she got lots of new presents. My parents gave her a wooden rocking chair, so cute. She also got a really interesting little chicken-ball stuffed animal that clucks and bocks. She laughs every time it starts vibrating around. It's pretty funny.

I have my 3-hour glucose tolerance test tomorrow, so I've been watching my simple carbs and sugars the last couple of days. Considering that is all i have been eating for the last 6 months, I am feeling pretty deprived and hungry. I miss my crackers!

Today totally feels like Halloween. When I left for work this morning it was dark and rainy/stormy, windy and there were leaves all around. Perfect amount of spookiness. Ghosties and ghoulies and monsters... hehehe. I can't wait.

My stomach hurts today... I think its a combinationof being hungry, actually not feeling well, and Braxton Hicks. whoo boy, pregnancy is fuuuuun.

Darn, I had one more thing to add to this random post but I can't remember it. Sorry. Gonna publish now. :-)

I've been watching a lot more TV lately... because JT has night class 4 nights a week and monster goes to bed rather early, I have some time to myself. I wish that I would spent that time cleaning or working on my to-do list but honestly I am so tired by the end of the day that all I can manage to do is veg out for an hour or two before crawling into bed for the night.

I have had a couple of can't miss shows for the last few years but this year has also added a few new ones...

so far this fall I've been watching...
How I Met Your Mother -- So sad it's the last season!
Big Bang Theory
2 Broke Girls
Sleepy Hallow
19 Kids and Counting -- Pathetic but it's like a car accident, I can't tear myself away.

Coming up soon...
The Walking Dead -- Starts on Sunday! yay!

And, I want to watch...
Hostages -- Looks like something we would really like.

PS I can't wait until the new Jack Bauer show starts next spring. Yay for bringing back Kim Raines! :-)

what are you watching? Any suggestions?
