Happy 4th of July! We are celebrating by staying cool indoors with our veggie burgers, potato salad, and baked beans. It’s currently 97 degrees here, and that’s just too hot for me. We’ll be listening to fireworks tonight, rather than watching them.
It occurred to me today that I completely forgot to mention in my last post that I had my last day of work last week. I did not go on maternity leave. Instead I quit, deciding to try on the title of full-time mommy. I am grateful for this work-free time I have before baby comes, because my body is telling me I need to rest, and I’ve still got to get everything ready for baby’s arrival. While dinner is cooking, I’m sorting through a pile of baby clothes my sister-in-law gave us, and feeling grateful that I won’t need to buy any more onesies or pajamas for the time being.
We watched Alien last night. I thought it was supposed to be scarier than it turned out to be. Also, that movie is about as old as I am, and I couldn’t get over how dated their spaceship was, or all the smoking they did all over their spaceship. Now to watch Aliens.
