Brain no go.

I guess I should be getting to posting up here on the blog. Really though I can barely string together a a sentence let alone a thought to save my life. I really should be eating more Omega 3's!

Well what is there to catch up on. I'm leaving the north in 2 weeks for my confinement period, meaning time spent stuffing my face with Mcdonalds and within driving distance of a hospital. We have finally come up with a contending Name, but I don't have Nathan's signature on a contract yet, so it might still change. It only took blood, sweat and many tears to come up with a name and I'm hoping we can stick with it. Now onto a middle name...eek! The little girl has been kicking lots and I'm really starting to get excited to meet her, just not about the whole birthing thing. Something that has to happen, but I don't have to be happy about it.

My sister-in-law, brother-in-law and their oldest son are coming up next Wednesday for week. They are flying back with me, it just worked out that way, good thing too because I might need my sister to do some yelling if the person in front of me puts their seat down on the plane. I normally hate when people put their seat down, not only because I can't put down my table, but because the back of their head is usually in my face and that's just too close. I really don't need to know what kind of shampoo anyone else is using or lack there of. This time however, I am going to say something if it happens, seeing as I have a good excuse, but will probably have to borrow my sister-in-law's assertiveness to make that happen. I know no one will mess around with this pregnant lady when she's on the team.

Meanwhile my Halloween candy I ordered a month ago from London Drugs has not made an appearance! And I know it's not their fault. Canada post said the last time they scanned in the box was in Montreal almost 3 weeks ago...meaning it's sitting in Iqaluit collecting dust. Iqaluit is the like the big white dryer that absorbs socks like a black hole. Good bye little package, I thought we would have had a good time on Halloween with those fake eyelashes and Halloween goodies, I guess it's not meant to be. Bah! I don't know really what's to blame about the mail system up here, but I could send a box across the world 3 times over before anything gets to me up here. Boxes are also always ALWAYS smooshed, bashed and torn. I know it's all isolated and stuff up here, but I'm sure I would get better service living at the top of the Himalayas!

It's pretty cold here now. I called my in-laws yesterday down south and they were out on their deck enjoying some warm weather, while I snuggled into 20 blankets because it was snowing and so cold outside the ocean was freezing up in front of my eyes. I even saw some crazy driving his quad out on the newly sheeted ice. The other issue is the whole "fall back", while most of the country isn't suffering, it's now starting to get dark here at 2:30. But I guess I can't complain, I will be south in 2 weeks. I just don't feel ready to leave my home and Nathan behind for a month. I don't know if all the Quarter pounders in the world can console me.

Oh my friend I feel for you. But just think, you'll be wiping the McDonald's grease off your wrists and waddling back with a McFlurry and before you know it Nathan and the fluffy baby will be there with you. And I hear ya about the airplane seats. I don't think they should recline at all. It's just rude! It's good that you will have someone to fly back with. You'll need someone to hold the camera bag while you take pictures! :)

Matt, Kara and Hunter said...

mmmm McDonalds! I get it next weekend. I am drooling already.

Don't worry, your month will zoom by quickly and then your hubby will be there with you.

I am with you on the brain part. I can't put together sentences either.

I had to read Tinas message over a few times. I thought she was saying you were going to have a fluffy baby and I thought that was an odd expression. But after reading it 30 times, I know realize she means the dog. Man, I am losing it quickly.

I don't think its a prego thing, more like a grey moment for me. I read fluffy baby and thought the same thing Kara!
Ah! the glories of flying. Be careful not to get duct taped to the seat!
Jen, I hope the things I mailed to you three weeks ago arrive before you leave - small chance of that I guess.

Aida said...

oooo...getting so close. i hv to disagree with Kara about the month zooming

i find the last few weeks so long..more like years! but since you are with family, i hope it will pass soon.

i hear ya on mail gathering dust. our parcels that we mail to ourselves in ottawa got to winnipeg in 2 days and its been almost 2 weeks now and we hv not receive its collecting dust in winnipeg and the parcel is suppose to be here in 13 business days..

I heard about boxes going north always ending up battered. I've wondered what's up with that anyway? I wish I could follow a package to see how they're being handled. The postal service must be throwing them around or sitting on them during break....LOL
