We are now solidly into the third trimester, and there are less than 90 days until my due date. It’s pretty wild. That’s just under 13 weeks! There is still so much I feel like we need to do in the house to get it ready. Mainly, we means Errol. He has a long list of places that I want him to put up some shelves. I have this overwhelming desire to have things organized.
This past Friday, (I have to preface this with: the baby and I are fine, everything is fine) we were rear-ended by a pickup truck in my Corolla while sitting in traffic. Oh, it is such a good thing Errol was driving, because I am pretty sure I was immediately hysterical. I couldn’t breathe, I was so terrified. I know this guy couldn’t have been going more than maybe 15-20 mph, but it felt and sounded like the end of the world. And because it was big pickup versus small compact, you should see the back of our car. I thought I was going to be sick when I got out and looked at it. The truck won’t close, the bumper is bowed out on the sides, the lights smashed out… I really need to take a picture. It’s stayed in the driveway at home since Friday, waiting for our insurance to work it out with his so we can get it fixed. The icing on the cake… we discovered Sunday night that since the trunk was open, the trunk light was staying on. Errol disconnected the fuse, but I’m pretty sure the battery has died. I couldn’t get the car to unlock with the remote this morning. I’m hoping this just means the fuse for the trunk light also operates the automatic locks. More to come.
So, one of the things on my list of what I want fixed up before the baby comes is getting done today… our builder is coming to the house to replace some cracked kitchen tile! Woo! It’s just cracked from natural settling, but in a lovely diagonal line right across the kitchen. I feel like we’re getting a whole new floor!
That’s all the news that’s news for now, I guess. The cats have their annual vet appointments on Saturday, and I have my June doctor appointment next week. At this one, I get to drink the fruity beverage and get my blood sugar tested for gestational diabetes. Super fun!
