I am sick. Not seriously though, dear readers, lest you get alarmed. I seem to have contracted that most disastrous of all foes, which can bring a person to their knees, crying “Why God? Why can’t I breathe?” That’s right friends, the cold.
Having a cold while 9 months pregnant is pretty rotten though. I’ve decided to persevere by spending the day on the couch.

10 days from now is baby-time. Unless, of course, she decides to come early. When the nurse saw how many contractions I was having, she teased me “Maybe this baby will come early!”. From your lips to God’s ear nurse.

I have three free magazine subscriptions. I got a postcard in the mail from one of our credit card companies saying I had like 120,000 miles. I thought, woo-h00, maybe we can get a free hotel room or something. So I logged onto the website to redeem my miles.
And it turns out that in order to get a free hotel room, you have to have like a million miles. So I got three free magazine subscriptions: Time, Glamour, and Health. The pickings were somewhat slim. But hey, they were free and now I’ll have some reading material for 3 am nursing.

This weekend is our last big date before the baby comes. We’re going to dinner at an Italian restaurant; the kind that serves the courses in the style of Italian cuisine. I hope they have fresh pasta. I haven’t had fresh pasta since Rome.
Then we’re going to see Handel’s Messiah performed by the Indianapolis Symphony. It’s sort of a tradition with us; we went last year, and we went to one in Chicago two years ago. It’s sort of a Christmas thing we do.

We are getting rid of our cable! We bought one of those blu-ray players that can stream NetFlix, and YouTube, and music from Pandora. We can save a good bit of money each month (cable is way more expensive than NetFlix) and get to watch more of what we like, rather than just “what’s on”. The onl thing I think we might miss will be the sports channels.
Has anyone else done this? Did you find it hard to not have cable?

I am going to be a bridesmaid for my dear friend’s wedding in February, and I need to find a dress. I’ll be six weeks-ish post-partum, and she told all of us that we can wear any type of dress we like as long as its navy blue.
Have any of you ladies needed/found a good nursing dress? If so, where might I locate one? Any ideas?

That’s all from here; have a great weekend!
