Oh, HOORAY!! It's FALL!!

Well, let me tell you what I'm wearing on this gorgeously chilly day!! So last year on my birthday Martin gave me a blue Gap sweater, brown socks with blue and white argyle, and a bouquet of white and blue flowers. Super cute! I love being married to a girl! Anyway, the sweater is very adorable, but it's a little bit big, and a little bit strechy so it's always been a little baggy on me.... UNTIL NOW!! Hahaha!! So today I am wearing my blue sweater with my brown tank top underneath, my favorite [pouch pants] jeans, the matching argyle socks and my clogs. I LOVE FALL. I was going to wear my white scarf but I didn't think of it until after we'd already left the house. We drove down to Crawfordsville this morning because Martin had work to do at his office before he leaves for Wisconsin tomorrow. I didn't mind because it gave me a good excuse to sit there and knit while he worked. Then we took a walk around Crawfordsville, to the Lew Wallace study and around all the pretty neighborhoods with the gigantic houses. Love it, love it, love it. For lunch we went to Culvers where we spent some peelers that my dad gave us. This is the first time I've had peelers that I've actually used... Martin and I use them all the time! It's great! Soon we'll be as big as a Crawfordsville house!

I'm pretty sure that if Theodore had hands and was able to dress himself he'd go around all day every day in cammo. He stalks everything from carpet fuzz to Baxter. He thinks he is so stealthy and quick... I'm not sure he's aware of his weight problem. Should I tell him? Or would that be too mean?

I'm thinking about cutting my hair short again. I mean, I'm definitely going to do it, but I was going to wait until after the baby comes. Now I'm thinking of doing it soon. I'm kind of sick of my long hair. I know it looks gross and the only reason I grew it out in the first place was so I could wear it up for my wedding, but I've been married for 9 months now and I've still never had a haircut. No, that's not true, I got one before Easter, I think.... sometime when I worked at the courthouse. Well, anyway, I'm kind of craving my short hair again. I miss it. And it looks so cute with my hats in the fall and winter...

I spent the majority of yesterday afternoon working on the nursery! FINALLY! There are still some major things to be done... for instance, getting a crib mattress, bringing my rocking chair from my parents' house, and finding a home for the microwave. But for having two months to go, it looks pretty good. I love the crib we got. I love it. I've got all the diapers in baskets with green ribbon and all the stuff from the shower set up on the dresser or the shelf above the dresser. I have all the blankets and sheets and clothes and hats put away in designated places, and all the nursing accessories I have in a drawer of their own. It feels so good to be getting stuff done in that room.

Kim and I played at Java Roaster last night. We lounged on the couch while we played around the single mic and the place was packed and we made some good money and had a really good time. We played "Me and Bobby McGee" and everyone sang along, it was great. I'm glad I learned to play mandolin because it really makes a boring song rockin'. It's like a drumset with strings!

During Martin's final week of travel he's only going to be staying in a hotel for one night because everyplace else he's visiting is close enough to home that he doesn't need hotel rooms. I am sooooo glad of that. He'll be at most a couple hours away that week, which is great because that's getting very close to the due date, and even if I go three weeks past due I'll feel better in the couple of weeks before if he's close. Just in case.

I love Saturdays. I love fall. Today the sky was full of my favorite kind of clouds, the kind that are white on top with grey bellies. Although if you read "Girl with a Pearl Earring" you'll realize that clouds aren't white at all, they're a bunch of different colors. I did like that book. However, "Girl in Hyacinth Blue" was boring and lame. Well... at least the first two chapters were. I didn't get past chapter two.

The only thing that makes livejournal better than blogspot is the moods you can choose from. There aren't any moods on blogspot and I'm not always sure what my mood is without having a list to choose from.
