I want my time machine

Do you ever have one of those .... months... where you wake up and realize that for a minute there you thought it was still summer and August and then you realized that unbeknownst to you, it is now November? Yeah. I had one of those.

I can't believe Rhinebeck was two weeks ago. I took my loot pictures and would love to post them, but I can't due to some technical difficulties. I can post this though:

For those of you interested in this sort of thing, this pic was taken at 12 weeks. Baby is currently measuring a week ahead of its age and doing well.

So this weekend, Paul and I played in a Monopoly tournament benefitting... something... and then went to the mall (where I chanced the salad bar for the first time in years), had dinner with friends and played some poker with some other friends. Apparently, unbeknownst to me at the time, I also picked up a stomach virus that left me so dehydrated by Monday afternoon I needed an IV. I wound up spending the night in the hospital with some fabulous fluids and a very sexy hospital gown. It was really quite nice and relaxing (and rehydrating), and since I've never been to the hospital and expect to return in the spring under happier circumstances, I learned a few things to make sure I handle then. Like exactly how I feel about hovering, cell-phone using visitors who show up right when I'm getting hit hard by the drug knocking me out. Also, I need to pack a hairbrush.

Lesson learned.

In case you're wondering, yes I did get my on-bedrest-self out to vote yesterday. Civic duty and all that.

Celebrity Jeopardy.... Oh my gosh. I have to turn this off before I start yelling at the screen.

Oooh - wonderful scan picture! Congratulations! My girls (now age nearly 8y & 5.5y) love to see their own scan pics - it's fascinating for them working out where all the limbs are!
