Back in the Saddle

It’s been a few weeks since my last blog post. Life has been eventful and non-eventful all at once. I’ve been busy. I was out of town for a while. The dog ate my homework. And, that’s it for my excuses. I once read in another blog that the blogger’s life was going really well, and it made it hard for her blog. I can completely empathize with her. Because my life is going pretty well right now. I mean I’m still not in love with my job and I’m so busy and tired all the time. And I haven’t suddenly reconciled with my parents or found out I’m a princess or anything.

But life is good, and it’s sometimes hard to write about my life when it’s all good. With that said, since I feel like I wasn’t thankful enough last month let me count the ways life is good to me:

  • The baby is moving a lot. I can feel her bouncing around like a ping pong ball from one side to another, and her kicks are pretty strong at this stage. I don’t know if she’s a her, by the way, but I will find out next week. And I’m really excited about that. I remember Azita being so active when she was in utero, and I keep thinking that means this baby will be as sweet and wonderful as my darling little girl.
  • Azita wants a pony. She walks around sing a little song she made up that goes like this. “A pony, A pony, A pony, A ponyyyy. A pony, A pony…” You get the idea. We’ll probably get her a My Little Pony for her birthday, but I’m really excited about this development. Mostly because I’ve always wanted a real, live pony, and I think this ups the chances that we’ll one day buy a pony. And maybe if I start now with the lessons on sharing, Azita will share the pony with me.
  • I met my newest nephew over Thanksgiving, and he’s the sweetest little boy ever. I’m so in love. I couldn’t stop holding him, which is good because he really likes to be held. The best part? I remembered what baby heads smell like, and now I’m really excited to have another baby whose head I can sniff all day long. What? Other people don’t sniff baby heads?
  • I’ve finished my Christmas shopping, and I didn’t spend a lot of money. There’s nothing I hate worse that the thought of going into debt to buy stuff for a holiday. I’m not a religious person, but Christmas does have a non-material meaning for me. I think it’s a time of year to refocus on family and the things that matter in life, and I take that really seriously. So, I’m thoughtful but cheap, and our Christmases are all the more wonderful for it.

    Glad things are going well for you! You’ll definitely have to keep us updated on the ultrasound news. So exciting! You’re right about that baby smell. I wish they could bottle it so I could snort it whenever I want. =)
