crazy, busy friday

whew. i should be tired, but for some reason, i'm just not. i had a long list of errands to run today, and i've accomplished almost all of them:

  • paper source. i needed a few items for an order of programs for a wedding that's next saturday. hee!
  • since i was in the area, i headed to dot's cupcakes for a treat. or four. and hiyo was so bowled over at me being due in two days that she threw a couple of fun freebies in for me - a pumpkin spice cupcake and a caramel apple mini. yay!
  • pottery barn kids, to pick up a collared top for the bean. it's being washed right now so i can pack it in the bag and she can wear it home with this adorable dress (the pink one, of course):
  • right start. i received duplicates of a couple of items on our registry, so i did an exchange for a swaddling blanket and the peanut shell sling i'd been wanting. i love the idea of carrying the bean around like this:
  • ross. i hate that store, but i'd bought a container for the candy buffet at the MIL's baby shower that i didn't end up using, so i returned it. i hate having shit around the house that i don't need or want, so i trucked my ass in there and got my cashola back.
  • staples. my printer was running low on toner, and we can't have THAT.
  • michael's. similar to the ross run (returning an unused candy buffet container), but i actually like that store. of course, i found what i wanted in two seconds and ended up standing in line at the ONE cash register behind a lady who was buying the whole effing store. i kid you not, her bill came to $275. $275. at michael's. and there were no big items or cool toys in that cart, let me tell you. a whole bunch of little shit that came to $275!
  • bed bath & beyond, to return four packs of shelf liner. i went a little crazy when we were moving stuff into the kitchen and didn't want to have to go back to buy more, and i always figure it's easier to have more and return the extra than to get all frustrated while you're on a roll and working away, only to run out of supplies. you know?
  • i wrapped it all up with a stop at in-n-out for lunch. hey, i'd earned it, wouldn't you say?
as i pulled into the driveway, i noticed that the hub's whole family (well, damn near) was at our house, and i could see all sorts of activity going on. i walk in with the first load of purchases and he and his parents and grandfather are busy taping and laying down tarp and setting out paint trays. looks like the wan-nabes are going to have lovely, freshly painted walls! yay! my ILs are fabulous, yes?

and the moment i stepped into the house with my lunch and the rest of the crap from the car, it started POURING. man, my timing is impeccable. woo-hoo!

hmm. i wonder if me not being tired after all the shit i've done so far today could mean that labor is coming. i could SWEAR i was having mild contractions last night. huh. i really don't think i'd recognize a contraction if it jumped up and bit me in the ass.

keep ya fingers crossed.
