Monday Miscellany

  • It's hard to believe that my break is basically over. I say "basically" because classes don't actually resume until Thursday, but I was busy today getting my courses ready, so it was essentially back-to-work for me.
  • The cool thing about being back at work today, though, is that I moved my office and I now have an office with a window! One faculty member retired after the fall term, and then there was a mass shifting of offices, and I was senior-enough to lay claim to an office with a view! And now it's mine, all mine! My precious...
  • Tomorrow, my stepmom and sister are coming to visit us for a few days. This will be the first time they will meet Norah, so it should be fun to have them here.
  • Tomorrow is also exciting, because in the morning, we have baby#2's anatomy ultrasound, which means...we get to find out the baby's sex! And, yes, we're totally the kind of people who can't wait for the surprise; we want to know! Although, that being said, it doesn't matter to us what sex the baby is -- we are happy with either -- but we're curious; plus, I want to be able to sort through all of Norah's stuff that I kept. If it's a boy, I'll be packing up a lot of stuff for Goodwill; if it's another girl, I'll be keeping nearly everything.

Congrats on the office! Having a window is the best perk an office can have. Good luck at the Doctor!

Ah, nobody wants to be surprised anymore. Too much money involved to wait that long, I suppose. Congrats on the new office. Cheers to 2011.

Ooh, that's exciting. I would definitely find out the sex if I was pregnant.

I loved that appt! Totally couldnt wait either. But the best news was that she was healthy. Good luck tomorrow!

Yay for an office with a window! Will you share with us when you find out? I have to say having two kids that are the same sex and season has saved us a ton of money on clothes!

Just getting all caught up! SORRY!

Christmas looks like it was a blast! I love those special holidays where you can stay home with the ones you love the most and lunge in your PJ's ;)

And I loved the goals wrap up for 2010 - you did great! I'm so in awe you paid off your student loans - that is huge. *sigh* that seems like a ways off still :p

Enjoy the visit with the family, and good luck at your appointment!

so exciting! good luck! It seems like '11 is a year of the boy but I thought '09 was the year of the boy also. I'll guess a girl.
