I finally got my hair cut! And weaved. Yessssssssssss. It was very needed. I am blonde on top again as well as at the bottom. It may be the best haircut I've ever received. And you know how the professionals can always blow you out a thousand times better than you could ever do yourself? Yeah. She did it yesterday and I might not wash it again for a year so as not to mess up her handiwork.
Over the weekend, we did a race that raises money for MS, as organized by our friend Sandy. This is the second year in a row we've done it and though it was exactly half the temperature as last year (35 degrees as opposed to 70) it was a lot of fun. This year I was significantly slower (more disabled, if you will) than last year. My uterus was in one constant rock-hard contraction for the entire three miles (not kidding) from the exertion. Pleasantly, The Insider Resider stayed inside.
We've bought pretty much nothing at all so far, with the exception of a few maternity outfits and a pair a tiny patent-leather shoes to celebrate the news that she is a girl. But when I saw this, it looked like the greatest thing ever. The website goes on and on about how it's so much better than a body pillow, it aligns you so well, all your aches will be gone, and you'll sleep better than you ever have, regardless of the fact that you may have a bowling ball strapped to your midsection. It (quite effectively) went on and on. And I bought it all, hook, line, and sinker. If there's something I like it's my sleep, and that has definitely been disturbed by the presence of a certain bowling-ball-like addition to my person. Let's be straight- it was 80 bucks. But I bought it.
The thing is, I could send it back. But I want it to work so badly. I want it to be the miracle I've dreamed of. Maybe I will give it another chance. Or ten. Hmm.
Also it's Lemon Month at Sweet Tomatoes, my favorite month of the year! And we have a coupon! I am planning on heartily requesting this as our dinner destination for the evening to my loving and oh-so-frugal husband. Wish me luck.
