Ho hum. . .

Jude's been sick for a couple weeks now. Fever, congestion, runny nose, and everything else that usually accompanies those symptoms. Jay and I have been fighting with nasal congestion and post-nasal drip sore throats, as well. It's been off and on, so it's not too bad.

We moved our desk to the back of our living room to make our third room into the new baby's room. I hate to lose our office because there is no doubt in my mind that the desk will eventually look like something out of a white trash movie just as it always does.

I have my monthly OB appointment next Monday. Everything has been going well. I think I've finally put on some weight. I say finally and it sounds like that's a good thing that I've been eagerly anticipating. It isn't. I hate the thought of gaining more weight. It doesn't bother me too bad, since I know it's for a good reason, but you'd think the baby could make do with all the excess weight I already have.

Yesterday I took Jude to the local library. This was the first time he's been to the one here other than a quick in and out trip to pick something up for my dad when he was still in the hospital. It's not really set up for a kid his age. Small town, you know. I had forgotten that it has those animal heads mounted on the wall like it's some sort of hunting cabin. Ugly, but Jude liked it. I'm so not into hunting. So many guys around here live to hunt and fish and the idea is just disgusting to me. So anyway, the library is small and other than visiting one animal carcass and then moving on to the next, I don't think we'll be visiting this library again any time soon. Maybe next time we head to Lafayette we can check out their library.

We are in the process of sorting through our belongings again. We usually do this at least once a year. Lately it's been more frequently since we moved a couple times within the last year. I think Jay's nesting instinct kicked in. Too bad mine hasn't.

I'm sorry to hear that Jude's been sick recently - I hate it when stuff like that drags on and on.

That sounds like quite a library, btw! I'm sure Emma would find it facinating, although I doubt I would get much out of it. We saw a deer head mounted on the wall of one restaurant once and we talked about it for days afterwards...
