Rough return, but then more nesting

Ugh. It took exactly 2 hours on Monday for the afterglow of the annual ladies-only beach trip to wear off. This week has been so busy again, though, that it already feels like ancient history. So I guess there's no point in wallowing here in Husband's obvious crankiness about my being absent from little girl care for 3 days and nights, about the house-wide infestation of dust bunnies, the empty fridge, the mountain of dirty laundry....Nah.

Nesting in preparation for our new little daughter has begun in earnest now that my trip is over. Her room--formerly Bean's room--is pretty well set up. Baby toys and clothes stored in the attic have been washed and put away. Cloth diaper service begins on 11/10. We have a new freestanding freezer, courtesy of my friend Suburban Gorgon, in which I'm looking forward to stockpiling food for the baby apocalypse. On the agenda today--4 chicken pies and a large batch of pumpkin muffins.

My good mood left me after a girls weekend right when I walked in the door. What a disaster area. You can blame your mood on hormones.

Sounds like you have a great game plan lined up! I wanted to make some pumpkin stuff and other goodies this week, but forgot most of the ingredients I'd need. Gah. Another trip to the grocery store is in order. Care to share any of your recipes?

"baby apocalypse" so funny. And so true.

Yes, going away always seems to come with a hefty price.
