I started classes last week… nothing special just two required classes that have to be taken and that happen to have night classes… Art History and Intro to Speech. They’re both okay as far as classes go, I’m not too wild on Speech… I get very nervous when I have to stand up in front of a group of adults and talk… just ask anyone who attended my sisters wedding… my hand was shaking so bad when I gave the Maid of Honor speech, I thought there would be no champagne left in my glass! Art History is fun, but reading the chapters in the book is a complete and utter snoozefest so far. But…. 1 week down and only 15 left this semester.
I have no clue what I will be doing about classes next semester. I am due early April, so right in the heart of the semester… I’m thinking online courses.
I’m loving the weather that we’ve been having here in Northern Illinois! It could stay like this forever… 65 -70 and sunny… now if it just had that fall smell in the air it would be perfect!
Ray, Noah and I went to a forest preserve not far from us on Sunday to 1) get out of the house 2) get some sun and 3) get us off our butts and moving. This was only the second time that we had been to this particular place and we weren’t quite sure how long the trail was… it turns out it ended up being 3.73 miles!! By the time we were finished, Ray thought his arm was about to fall off (we had Noah in his wagon, not the stroller), Noah was sleeping and I was feeling tired but alright. Fast forward to yesterday… I thought my calves were going to explode!! I am so sore… not just my legs, but my lower back also… maybe walking that far when I’m not used to it and pregnant is not such a good idea afterall.
Noah is walking more and more now. It is so cute to see how drunkenly stumbles from one thing to the next. Any chance that he gets, he is on his feet and he can take a good 10 steps or more at times. He’s even turned and changed directions!
Ray and I were given the chance to go out and see a movie in the theater for the first time since Noah was born! Ray’s mom came up on Saturday and watched Noah while the two of us went to go see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. We had a good time, but kept waiting for that call that would ultimately send us home to a screaming child… but that call never came!!! Noah and his grandma did great and they even took a little nap together! I enjoyed being able to go out and feel like a normal human being again… that was until the seats started to fill up and a) nasty perfume lady and b) stinky I don’t wash myself nasty BO smell teenager sat down a) in front of me and b) in the seat right next to me… and I mean right next to me… I thought that teens would know that when there are still seats available all over the place, you don’t sit down right next to another person… where’s the 1 seat in between courtesy?!! I was so tempted to make Ray get up and move over, but the movie was already starting and I didn’t want to cause a scene… my nose paid the price for it and I swear I could still smell that nasty unwashed teen funk hours after the movie was over!
That’s it for me today… now I’m off to finish the laundry I didn’t get done yesterday as well as clean and straighten up and bit and then Noah and I are off to Target, Meijer and Michael’s… I want to see if I can crochet or knit him a little hat for the winter =) What are your plans today? Did you do anything fun and exciting this weekend?
