Trying to catch up

Whew! We had a great weekend with my dad and Cheryl here, but we definitely stayed busy. The town Halloween party, Boo at the Zoo, shopping and endless trips outside with the dog kept us all going nonstop all weekend!

Bryn's class took a field trip to the pumpkin patch today and it was fun to see all of them pick out the perfect pumpkin. They had lunch at the park and got to play for about 45 minutes on the playground so there were a lot of happy kindergartners!

I spent the rest of the day cleaning up after Elmer when he didn't make it outside, cleaning up kitty barf and cleaning the house. Too exciting for words, I tell ya!

I had another doctor appointment on Friday and everything is going well. Baby's heartbeat sounds good and my blood pressure is good. The bummer is that my doc is going on maternity leave this week and I will be seeing other docs until the beginning of January. The bright side is that I'll go see the perinatologist (just to check in with her in case I need to see her later in the pregnancy) on November 15th and have an ultrasound to check everything out and see if we can see if we can pull out pink clothes or have to round up a bunch of blue...we'll see!

I remember the days of cleaning up after a pup. I was very lucky. Mine was fully trained by the time he was four months old.

Glad you all had such a great time! And glad all is well so far with pregnancy! Bummer that your OB is going to be out for a bit; I know you like her. I can't wait to hear the news from that ultrasound! What's your gut feeling? Maybe you should hope for a girl...Rich was just telling me about this study that showed having a boy takes 34 weeks off a mother's lifespan. Frankly, I'm suprised the number's not higher :)

Getting close to the time to find out, exciting! And yikes on Debi's comment a/b boys taking off 34 weeks of mom's life!

Hey Kara! Just me. Annie's not awake yet, but she is going to be thrilled to pieces when she finds out you're going to join her reading challenge! It's super easy to do (if it wasn't I wouldn't be able to join them). Just make a post in your blog with your list of books. Then come back to the sign up post and leave a comment that your list is posted. And then we'll add your name to the list linking it to your post. (Of course, you don't really even have to come back and comment when you've posted your list, since I always read your blog anyway.)
If you ever want to join some other challenge, it's really easy to give them the address to your specific post, too. Just click on the title of your post and the URL to that specific post will come up and you can just copy it and then go paste it in their comments. Not sure if I explained that in an understandable fashion or not.
Anyway, Annie is going to be so happy! Can't wait to see your list!

Glad that everything is going well with the pregnancy! It will be fun to find out what you are having too! Happy shopping for pink or blue!
