We just had our half way scan. Our little BOY is looking perfect and healthy.

That's definitely something to be happy about. :)

thanks lookout. :)

I've been watching your thread but not commenting. i'm a little superstitious about pregnancy stuff. ;)

Aliantha 11-04-2008 12:52 AM

It's ok. I think most of us are.

Things seem to be pretty good though. Another few weeks and the baby could even survive and early labor. I"m sure that wont happen, but it'll be nice once I get past that 24 week barrier. Every week after that, the baby's chances improve exponentially. :)

Congrats, Ali! Names yet??

I am tickled PINK that I finally have a sewing machine (a Bernina, for those of you who know about this kind of thing) and am all set to start creating SCA garb. YAY!! Plus, I start my new job on Thursday... double yay! Now I just need to find babysitter. That's not going so well.

The campaign phone calls will end (for a bit) after today.. yessssss.

Yesterday alone I got 8 automated and 2 live body calls to the house, 2 to my cell phone, and a few more pamphlets in the mail box.
One had the gall to call at 10:30PM.. I could have reached through the phone and shoved her cue cards down her throat.

Heh, there's an advantage to having a cheap ass tracphone instead of a real phone, cell or landline.

10:30? Eeeek, I get irritated when friends call after 9 pm, because I was taught that was rude unless it's really important.

And poli-calls are exempt from the do not call list.

I think that is wrong wrong wrong.

Got more new cards yesterday, and today is my birthday!

The joys of a swing state. :right:
My boss out in WY only uses bag phones for that very reason, he has 5 or 6 stored as backups when one eventually dies.

What do you think will happen with the Casino issue, Bullitt?

It probably won't pass. At least in my area, there has been a strong campaign against the casino and only a cheesy weak one in favor of it. The girl saying "i'm about to be laid off and i need this casino job or else who knows what will happen to me!"
I voted no mainly because of this statement in the Akron Beacon Journal: "More, studies of gambling have shown that for every $1 in economic benefits, there are roughly $3 in costs, most notably in the form of families ruined at the gaming tables." There's also the whole tax and monopoly issues to consider.
It reminds me of the whole lottery and school funding thing.

Schools are closed today, so my wife brought my kids into the city for their dentist appointments. Then they swung by my office to meet me for lunch. We ate in the dining room here, where everyone was thrilled to see my wife (she used to work here 10 years ago.) Then we swung by to visit my boss. It's always good for my boss to see my lovely family just before raise and bonus time in a few weeks. Got to keep it fresh in her mind that I'm supporting a real family and can use any scraps she can toss me. A very nice visit.

A healthy baby is something to be very happy about, and I'm happy for you.
Now, better start playing him Judy Garland records, so at least you'll still get to go clothes shopping with him in 20 years time!

Seriously, I'm very glad all is well x
