Happy September Everybody! (And Labor Day too) I'm always so happy when September comes around. As much as I love the summer (and I really do), I'm always glad for a break from the heat and look forward to fall coming. And this year, in particular, I'm looking forward to the months going by quickly so we can get to APRIL! (the baby is due in April)
Today is overcast and cool. Such a nice change. The clouds have covered the mountains completely, and it looks as if there aren't any mountains there. So cool. To celebrate Labor Day today, I'm going to wear a pair of black pants with an elastic waistband that I bought on Friday. I had no idea that when I got pregnant that I would suddenly be in love with elastic waistbands. So dorky. These days I've been searching through my wardrobe to find clothes that do not squish my belly - more of a difficult task that I thought it would be, since I've pretty much always avoided purchasing clothing with elastic waistbands. Why am I talking about this?
Anyway, I am looking forward to spending a day with my husband, playing with our dog, grilling steaks, and relaxing - something we don't get to do very often without having to leave for some obligation like church, work, etc. Yay!
I allowed our pastor to announce to the church that I'm pregnant (because I was in a good mood and willing to handle the attention). It wasn't that bad. Kind of like ripping off a band-aid quickly. But a lot of people came up to me afterward and said that they knew that I was pregnant. I told them, "No you didn't." Ha ha. Mostly just to tease them. But I guess that they had figured it out. My behavior has changed over the last two months (I haven't been as talkative and bubbly), and I have a little bit of baby bump anyway, so to the observant person, pregnancy may have been obvious. But since a lot of them had figured it out, they weren't so shocked by the news, and they didn't come and attack me with words of congratulations, and strange pregnancy questions and comments.
