12-04 naughty but nice

12-04 naughty but nice

my lunch today had sprouts on it … woops. technically, i don’t think i’m supposed to eat those, but i’m hoping the roly poly folks who made my yummy delhi chicken sandwich washed them first. the curry chicken salad and avocado were too yum to pass up, so i took the risk and nommed some sprouts. salt and vinegar chips to go with it made everything so worthwhile. mmm. a little on the naughty side, but still so tasty.

but wait—it gets better! it’s friday, and i get to leave early. hooray!

this weekend, i’m hoping to finish printing another series of cards on the gocco with these swallows on them. then i’m hoping to cut my flannel into squares to sew my own cloth wipes. i might even go ahead and cut the polar fleece i bought to make some stay-dry liners for my cloth diapers, too. i’m tempted to purchase a yard of terry loop and a yard of hemp cotton (terry for one side of the wipes and hemp as an absorbent layer between the fleece liners), but maybe that’s being too ambitious for now. i should practice with what i have.

i don’t know if i’ll get to starting my crib bedding, but all the fabric has been washed. i need to iron, measure, and cut.

lastly, i’m seriously considering getting an exercise ball. ideally, i’d like one for the office and one for the house. i’m beginning to be uncomfortable no matter what kind of chair i sit in—residual soreness in my aching hips after restless nights makes any chair seem a little rough. i don’t think i could spend my entire work day in one, but i do think that a few hours a day would be helpful for my comfort, posture, and labor preparations.

birth classes have been good for me, even if hubby finds them a little boring. okay, more than a little. i do think we should probably be practicing more at home (because we haven’t been really practicing much at all), but i’m really appreciating the perspective in class that natural birth is possible. i’m still a little nervous about the idea, but i’m glad i can always have the option to change my mind … up to a point. i recognize that there’s a point of no return during labor, but i’m beginning to wonder if i can handle it all. who knows. we’ll find out in a few more months, anyway.
