Random Thoughts on March 30th

  • I hate doing random thoughts posts, but my day-to-day existence is so damn mundane to anyone else, I honestly can’t think of things to post most of the time. I share my baby stuff in a FB group I created already, don’t need to double it up on here, though I know I’ll prattle on a bit about Bella
  • Bella turned 6-months-old yesterday and to celebrate she had one of her worst nights in a while. The two previous nights she had 5 hour stretches without eating, making me think she may actually be heading back towards less night wakings. Not so. Last night I was up every hour or less, and I couldn’t pacify her with a binkie, I had to nurse her. It’s not a growth spurt or teething, it was just a single bad night, but it is exhausting.
  • Bella is doing really well with solids the 2nd time around. She is handling both the oatmeal and rice cereals well and had a so-so introduction to peas. She gets to try sweet potatoes tonight.
  • R is in class again today which is nice because it usually means he gets home fairly early (by 4pm yesterday as opposed to after 6pm when he’s in the office working).
  • Nemo has been better ever since that thunderstorm last week. He is frequently going out on his own when I have the door open for him and when I do have to “help him”, he usually doesn’t fight me. He did fight me just now, but that was because he wasn’t ready to go out again, I dragged him out because I didn’t want him barking at the cleaning ladies and waking up Bella.
  • Everyone gets check-ups on Friday. Bella has her 6-month check-up and our vet Duke is coming to give the dogs and kitty a once over. R decided that it was probably best for Bella to be at my folk’s place when the animals are getting examined… they don’t especially enjoy the process and R thought it might be bad for Bella to hear the animals (especially Lou the cat) in any sort of distress.
  • R and our accountant are trying to see if there’s any way around our huge tax bill, currently they’re trying to figure if I can claim any loss on the 401K I cashed in that’s causing all the problems. I don’t have much hope we’ll be able to do anything.
  • Mom and Dad went to see Elton John on Friday night. Dad had gotten her box seats for her 70th birthday. They had a nice time and enjoyed the show.
  • Today is my brother’s 40th birthday. I believe he’s having some computer problems, but after the night I had I don’t have the patience for him. My folks said to just call and wish him a happy birthday, tell him I have a migraine and call him tomorrow when I’m feeling better.
  • I decided to have a party for my birthday. It seems difficult to get together with people these days without a specific reason, so I invited people to come over on that Saturday (my birthday is actually on Easter Sunday this year). Only a few people have RSVPed so far, but that’s OK, I figured it would be a small, low-key gathering. It’ll just be nice to see people and hang out.
  • My MIL was down to collect her other two grandchildren to watch them for a few days while my BIL’s GF has surgery. She didn’t get a chance to stop by and see Bella, but she might try if she has to drive the kids the entire way back instead of meeting my BIL in Harrisburg.
  • I’m trying to help an old high school friend out with some marketing advice for her online store. I haven’t been in a marketing frame of mind in a while, but I fell back into it fairly easily. The hardest part is remembering which sites have the resources I used to use for evaluation purposes.
  • I ordered a blender to attempt to make Bella her baby food once we find out what she likes. It was only $20 online at Walmart and they’re shipping it to the local store for free.

Damn, I lost my train of thought. Bella woke up and I was holding her while the cleaning ladies finished. Then I fed her and she’s in her jumperoo, but not especially happy. Mommy isn’t happy either, Mommy REALLY needs a shower. 😛
