My latest baby girl name is Matilda. I know, I know...but remember the book "Matilda" by Roald Dahl? Although now that I have Mother-in-law approval, Sophia/e is now higher on my list. What to do what to do? I'll tell you what I have done: buy adorable baby girl clothes.
Other things I have done today include
1. shopping for maternity dresses online and ordering two dresses
2. going to the mall
3. eating at chick fil a
4. attending the semi-annual sale at Bath and Body Works
5. eating a slice of swedish apple pie left over from last night
6. building a fort in our living room with Holden
7. iming with Marcy Dibbleblotts
You may have already figured out from this list that Mike is out of town. Usually the first place I go when he leaves the city limits is Chick fil a. It's a good place to go to drown my sorrows in deep fried fat. Mike will be gone for a week doing work in Oregon--or, if you are a stalker/rapist: Mike will be home all week, but he will be in the adjoining weight room/target practice area, bulking up and working on his aim (not that he needs to, big hulking sportsman that he is).
If you feel sorry for me because I am alone, you should. And you should stop by or invite me out. Or offer to babysit for me.
So, here's another serious problem: I will be in Oregon on July 16th--the day Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is released; the day I should be getting my pre-ordered-since-January copy in the mail in PROVO. What should I do? I could just buy a second copy in Oregon. Or I could have my mom fly out to visit me at the beach, book in tow. We could have fun while she visits, too--as long as I get to read my book.
If you have solutions to any of the above problems, please let me know.
