Swole but happy

What kind of glutton for punishment decides to throw a backyard BBQ when she is 37 weeks pregnant? And then decides that the weather is too bad for a backyard BBQ, and so instead moves the party indoors, and takes on the added burden of going food shopping the morning of the party to buy cold cuts to take the place of the anticipated burgers and dogs? And then, when her last guest leaves, cleans for 30 minutes before heading out the door to someone else's party until after midnight? If you answered Dineen, Dina, and Silly tired Dina, you would be right on all counts.

That said -- despite my swolen feet and total exhaustion -- it was a great day. It was so nice to see everyone. It was so nice that Mike and I had such a good time Friday night unpacking baby stuff into the room so that we could get it out of the living room and guest room. It was so nice to see both long lost friends and folks we had seen just last weekend. It was so nice to allow my friends to put their hands on my tummy and feel the baby roll around inside me. It was so nice to joke with folks about when baby would come and what it should be named. It was even so nice to use that exhaustion as an excuse to sleep in til 10 this morning, then alternately eat, clean, read, and snuggle with my honey all day. I needed every one of those things.

And heck, today my feet look almost normal, just by staying off of them! My hips and pelvis feel better, too. I may be swole (as Katie says folks in Nawlins would say about my delicate condition), but I am just so happy.

Sounds like a rockin' party! I am sorry i missed it. :(

Not long now, momma! What are the top name choices now (perhaps this would make a good entry on the site) ;)

Why should we ruin any name surprise at this point? We are still undecided. We will, however, post the list of suggestions very soon.... =)
