hooray for me!!! I got my first disability check this week!!! We will not comment on how small it is, but at least we got some money!!!

the reality is that it won't last long. The first check is for the first week in May and since I only get paid out on 13 weeks of disability, I will run out of free money sometime around the second week of August. But at least we won't starve until then!!!

I know my finances are very boring, but I was excited. Plus I got to take a walk to the bank yesterday to deposit my very own check. so that was a double bonus. Money AND a walk to the end of the block.

Wow, life is exciting here.

today I am toying with the idea of going upstairs to tackle some of my scrapbook from Italy. I figure I only went on that trip last june, so I don't have to feel so bad about it sitting around in a paperbag and not in the lovely scrapbook I purchased for it. Plus I can't really justify starting my wedding or honeymoon albums when I still have the worldwind driving tour of the boot to finish up.

I know, hold on to your seats, this ride is really on the edge.

In knitting news, I ripped out the one gigantic pink mitten I had made myself this winter. (don't ask, I clearly have gauge issues) and started on a really simple baby blanket. I am also in the midst of a rather complicated baby blanket on size 3 needles which may cause me to go blind. I think the pattern is a little too hard for me. The color switching is not something I ever learned so I'm sort of making it up as I go along. With not so hot results.

Now back to your regularly scheduled nap.

Last night H asked me when it was time for the next belly shot. I told him the time was two weeks ago and don't worry, I took one myself in the bathroom mirror. Something tells me he doesn't read the blog...

Sometimes I post things just to see if my husband's reading. Sometimes it's only weeks later that he reacts.

I should show you my final belly pictures and then you'll feel even better about yours. A friend pregnant with 1 is 20 weeks now and said she's just showing... I went back and saw my 16 weeks photo where I already looked huge. but all worth it in the end. Some people just carry better than others or look good pregnant, and I was not one of those people.

Good luck organizing scrapbook stuff, I'm actually jealous right now.

yeah, the scrapbooking actually went pretty well. I got everything organized and it's not as bad as I thought. I feel a little better about it. I'd love to see your belly shots ;)

If you bring your knitting project on Saturday, I can help you with the color switching. Congrats on the cash!
