so we've successfully created a gift registry at target. that was quite an event. it is funny as hell getting filip into a place like target and then trying to figure out what we're gonna need for this babymanbaby was even funnier. scary, but funny. target online definitely offers more of the modbaby sort of stuff that you can't get in store making the initial trip kind of a let down and annoying. i'd like to set up a registry at grow maybe, but probably just because i want that tiny orange rocking chair that has been in the front window forever. and speaking of rocking chairs, i am a pregnant lady now and i need one. its not like i can set up a registry just for myself but if i could, this is the rocking chair that would be at the top of my list, obviously.
i haven't managed to junk one yet, but now it is a major neccessity. every pregnant lady has to have a rocking chair. and also speaking of midcentury baby furniture, i found this googling and almost peed my pants laughing, from this article via wired a few years ago. pretty hilarious. all that work refinishing my lcw and i could turn it into that high chair...heh. that doesnt really look too comfortable. look at that kids legs.
this week i've been procrastinating a bit, but at least this week i feel good about it. next week, though, im sure i'll feel really down on myself for it or absolutely nothing. so far, i really have nothing to complain about, but i'm going to anyway. recently these bizarre mood swings where i get really down on myself are really obnoxious. i've always had a tendency to be hard on myself or get kinda down from time to time, but who doesn't? this is not like normal, this is like, at least once a week, curl into a ball and cry until it hurts. then im ok. there are so many other productive things i could do with that cry time. its pretty annoying and it makes me feel like a huge sap. im gonna have a talkin-to with this kid about it, it is unacceptable.
so, for those who do not know already we have decided not to have any ultrasounds and not to find out what gender this dude is going to be. i mean, i'm halfway through it already and its not going to make a difference anyhow. except that i really want a boy. what we have decided is that filip gets to decide the girls name and i get to decide the boys name. and we both trust each other well enough to agree to that, even if there are any last minute changes or whatever. and so, the names are already pretty certain, and i think most people know them so i'll just leave it at that. although, i've really been thinking about the name atticus lately...
did i mention that our new place has raspberry bushes and grape vines in the backyard? so exciting! im getting so anxious to move! its retarded cute, im sitting at new wave right now and that mushaboom song by fiest is on and im totally nerding out over it and the near future for us.
its sixty degrees and im in a really great mood right now. i have an appointment set to cut my hair. i've been catching up with old friends that im excited to re-connect with. i'm totally enthralled with doctor who now and have developed a total crush on the doctor and i'm almost finished knitting my first baby sweater. right now, i feel like im at the peak of good moods during this so far.
