This and That

I don't have a whole lot to update. My battery charger on my computer pooted out on me last week and I ordered a new one. So now I'm waiting for it to arrive. In the meantime, since Drew's done with school (except finals!), he let me borrow his while he's at work during the day. I'm glad he has, but not having my laptop makes me sad. I guess waiting patiently is a skill I involuntarily acquired.

So let's see, last Friday, I went on a field trip with my 2nd graders to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry). They had a Leonardo DaVinci exhibit that was painfully boring to the kids, but extremely entertaining to me! They had a huge area dedicated to the Mona Lisa, and I learned lots of things I didn't know before. I'd go look at it again....although it being free for teachers was definitely a bonus. They even had space ice cream there. I didn't buy any though, since I told my kiddos they couldn't go in the gift shop...I didn't want to be a hypocrite. Another time though!!!

I only have 9 more weeks of lugging around "little" girl. This heartburn land is going to burn holes in my esophogus. It is horrendous. I apparently can do a new trick now where I can be asleep-- sleeping propped up in fact, and still have acid reflux pool in my throat, causing me to choke and cough myself awake several times a night. I don't mind the kicking, the rolling, the stabbing, but this acid reflux is the pits. I have never been so uncomfortable in my entire life! AND knowing my luck, she'll decide to show up like 2 weeks late. I wonder how quickly after the due date I can insist on being induced? (note to ask on monday. hahaha)

Alrighty, time to go look in the cupboards and decide what to eat for dinner. OH CRAP! I totally forgot to go get my Tagamet at the store! Maybe I'll go do that and THEN eat dinner. pooh...

You should get your doctor to prescribe you Nexium.... it is SO much better than Tagamet!
