Doings

1. Last Friday, the University of Texas Press held a tent sale on the side of the highway. It was the end of our very busy close week, and my boss did not want anyone to leave work but, as I kept pointing out, the flyer said up to 90% off! In the end, I and two other people made a rather quick pilgrimage in the afternoon and returned with three large bags of books, including this, which I have already read cover to cover:


2. One reason that being pregnant isn't much fun: I am miserably sick, but I can't take any medicine, at least not anything good. It started last week with a runny nose and watery eyes, and I thought I had allergies. Then it progressed into a full-on head cold, and now it has invaded my chest. I have been denied the sweet relief of Nyqil, and can only carry around my precious bottle of Vicks Vaporub.

3. This morning at my doctor's appointment, I heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time and it made all the misery of the last several weeks totally worth it.

Oh, congradulations on hearing the heart beat!

I celebrate that.

Also, thank goodness for Vicks.
