no. 612 – Several Notes of (Un)Importance

My mom returns from Jordan tonight. She’ll be at our house sometime tomorrow. I don’t know how she’s going to respond to our announcment, but I guarantee there will be a memorable quote from her. I just can’t guarantee it will be positive.

XBoy spied the ultrasound pics laying up in the front of the car from the backseat and exclaimed, "Are those pictures of the baby?!" Most people can’t tell what the heck they are looking at when it comes to ultrasounds, but he did. I’m pretty proud of that little shit.

After the Apocalypse (aka Garage Sale), we have only a crib and dresser with changing table left. (Note to Statia: our rollers wore out on the drawers and finding replacements has been a bitch. (We have the same brand of dressers.)) The crib is at my SILs (who will become a grandma 3x over in the time we’ve been pursuing a viable pregnancy), but the soonest we would need that is in the fall. I tried looking at Babies R Us, but I start to hyperventilate and click the X at the top-right of the web-page after only a few minutes.

A different vehicle for me has been the topic of conversation in our house for a couple of years now. I thought I wanted a Highlander so I went to test-drive one. Mr. DD said to test-drive a Sienna, just for shits and giggles, so I did – very reluctantly. I’m not a mini-van kind of gal. I must admit shamefacedly, that I fell in love with the Sienna. Ask me in a couple more years where we’re at then because I guarantee I’ll change my mind – again – before any decision will be made.

I want to revamp my blog (I’m all about "change" right now except when it comes to accommodating the "change" that could possibly happen in July), but would like your opinion through the poll below. I admit I get a warm-fuzzy seeing my blog in a side-bar, but I don’t know if that’s just my vanity or if it’s a blogging-given.
