Here’s what I did this weekend:

Stared at my huge self in the mirror.

Got asked if I was completely sure I’m not having twins.

Bought a new vacuum because I thought ours was broken but when we came home, John took a big wad of dog hair out of it.  Still, the new vacuum (a Bissell Pet Hair Eraser) is AWEEEEEEEEESOME and I really needed a new one anyway.  Even after “fixing” and vacuuming with my old vacuum, when I went over it with my new one it picked up tons of dirt and hair my old one had missed.  Yes!  (And yuck!)

Felt huge and pregnant.  When I tried to finish vacuuming and got so tired I had to sit down, I knew it was time to start working out more.  Come Monday.  Oh, that’s today.

Went to Kohls and got a pair of maternity pants for my huge self – they’re so cute!

Tried a restaurant called Sweet Tomatoes for the first time – it’s a salad bar buffet.  If you like to pay $8 for a plate of salad and some soup its great.  But John mentioned while we were there that we could have gone to Olive Garden and had unlimited soup salad and breadsticks and I wanted to kill him.  lol  Olive Garden is my favorite restaurant.  Still, we had fun and Emma enjoyed it though she is at the pickiest eating stage EVERRRRR and would only eat some macaroni and cheese.

Tried to keep Emma entertained all the rainy weekend without resorting to TV.  Failed.

Read “Time for School, Mouse” eight times out loud.

Watched the “Baby Signs All Aboard the Potty Train” DVD 25 times.  Choo choo!

Looked on helplessly from the couch (which is not built for pregnant women and sinks down deep when you sit down) while Emma dragged all of her books and toys out of her shelf and spread them around so that she could take careful inventory of her belongings.

Made a yummy dinner spur of the moment (I don’t plan meals YET) of alfredo pasta, broccoli, peas, carrots, lima beans, mushrooms, and zucchini.  Patted myself on the back.  Hubby and even picky child loved it!

Felt huge.

Followed John through Guitar Center while he looked at guitars we couldn’t possibly afford just for fun.  I then looked at professional keyboards and felt sad I don’t have a piano and haven’t had one for over two years.

Blogged a tutorial on making hair clips.  It only took me about 2 hours with toddler interruptions.

Attended a church potluck whereat I ate excellent food and asked for two recipes, meatballs in an orange sauce and Teriyaki chicken wings (actually John asked for that last one).

Felt huge when it was time to put Emma to bed and I realized she is getting too heavy for me to even lift up and put in the crib.  Or maybe I’m getting weaker?

Tried to keep my constant heartburn from making me miserable.  It doesn’t matter what I eat, I just have it!  *sigh*

So what did you do over the weekend?


8 Responses to What Did You Do This Weekend? (And a brief-ish account of my crazy weekend)

  • Wow sounds like a busy weekend!

    I ended up switching around the dining room/livingroom/computer room and hung the tv on the wall. It looks so much better!

  • Feel free to bring your vacuum over and we can see what it picks up off this floor. LOL

    What did I do this weekend? I planned out meals for the next two weeks, went grocery shopping, prepped a bunch of hair clippies, wrote reviews, created two fun crafts with my toddler, had the in-laws over for company, went to church, and totally felt it every night.

  • On Saturday we had a lazy day and I did some (very ver little actually) sewing. On Sudnay we went again to the LA County fair and saw a riding and shooting competition, had funnel cake, petted and fed goats, played in the princess house, saw a Pirate stunt show, saw a robotic dinosaur exhibit, rode a choo choo train, saw all the quilting and baking fair entries, and went through all the sales buildings . . . so much fun!

  • Awww! I need a new vaccum, can I borrow yours? LOL

    We had a pretty good weekend. Our small local airport had open house and fly ins so my sister and I took the boys to it. Have a lot of pics from it on my FB page. Then we went to my mother’s house and ended up there so late we had pizza for dinner with them. Sunday was our get stuff done day so we did grocery shopping together.

  • Ummmmm…. are you sure we weren’t living the same weekend in separate places?

    I went to a church potluck this weekend, and had to fend off comments of “Wow! You’re huge!” “Are you sure there’s only one in there?” And when I told one guy that I still have 6 months to go, he replied, “You won’t be able to fit through the door by then.” Gee, thanks. Way to make this horribly huge fat pregnant woman feel great about herself. UGH.

    I’ve always wanted to eat at Sweet Tomatoes, but the nearest one is almost 2 hours away. They have great coupons in the paper quite often, so that would help with the cost!

    Olive Garden is my absolute favorite restaurant. But, again, that 2 hour drive makes it a lot less appealing…especially when you’ve gotta pee every 20 minutes.

    Emma is gorgeous! Time for a new belly picture of your baby bump! :)

    • LOL – That’s crazy!

      I wonder why some people seem to think pregnant women are the best topic for “big” jokes… do they not realize pregnant women are hormonal? Oh well, at least the people in my church mean well, hehe.

      I wouldn’t drive two hours for any restaurant… unless I was somehow getting free food and there were other attractions nearby (like a beach).

      I’ll get a new belly pic stat! lol

  • we celebrated Gabby turning 6 with friends and family and everyone visiting to see our new family addition David who was just 4 days old!

  • *hugs* I cannot remember if I’ve email you lately or not. But I dreamed a reply to your email if I did not actually write it…
