A commonplace Saturday.

I haven't written in a few days now, actually, a little over a week. I really haven't had much of anything to say though.

Today was the first Saturday I haven't had any plans in a few weeks, and boy, it was much needed. I decided yesterday that I was going to sleep in today, pending the five beagle puppies (still for sale) that live in our back yard didn't start their daily brawls until later in the morning and I wouldn't be awoken by their yipping and growls.

Well, they were quiet, but of course, the annoying Min-Pin next door was let out promptly at 8:00am and she would not shut up. I wanted to get out of bed and go next door and kick the damn dog, but I was too lazy to get up. Someone later suggested maybe I go next door and kick the owner. I actually like that idea much better anyway. We'll see if I can coerce Jake into doing it. They might hurt me. Haha.

Oddly, and annoyingly as well, I woke up with my elementary school song in my head, and I knew all of the words. I found this odd, because the school consolidated with two other towns when I was in the... 6th or 7th, I forget, grade, and I couldn't for the life of me remember our high school song at all. It's been stuck in my head ever since. I even listened to Bon Iver on repeat a while but it just wouldn't drown out the nostalgia.

I decided to go to Barnes and Noble this morning to look at baby books and get an idea of what I would like in the one that we choose for our baby, and I found three for sure that I really liked. I took pictures of them with my camera phone so I could remember which they were later. I would really like Jake to help me decide on the book. I know it's probably not as important to him, but it definitely is to me.

Then I went to Wal-Mart, just because it is right next door. It was crazy busy, and I was starting to get sick to my stomach, but I managed to make it through with the items on my list, which included three items for a "just because" gift for my dear husband. I decided that since, on Wednesday when he wanted to have fun after work, all I could do was lie on the couch and try not to fall asleep, I would make it up to him. I purchased "Avatar" because he loves the movie, and a game for two, because we both love games, and then of course, the card. I wrapped it and left it on the table, so he'll see it when he comes home at like, 10 tonight, since he said he thought he'd be done early.

Then I went to Menards and got a small bag of dog food, because I have a gift certificate for there and couldn't think of any thing else I needed.

I came back to feed Wendell, and ended up falling asleep on the couch for three hours. Now I'm trying to decide what I want for supper (I'm thinking about ordering a Spinach Alfredo Chicken Tomato pizza from PapaJohns) and what movie I would like to watch while I wait for Jake.

Yup, that was another one of those boring, "here's what I did today" posts.


  1. This post wasn't actually boring at all! As for the dog's owner, definitely kick him/her. Obviously they're not disciplining their dog and should be. It's not the dog's fault mom/dad let him/her run around screaming its lungs off, lol.

    In any event, I love the little gift idea you have. I might steal it from you for Robby, lol. As for the lazy Saturday it definitely sounds like you needed and to be honest I think that's my favorite way to spend my weekends anyway, hah.

  2. I'm not even pregnant yet and I have baby books. :) One for me and a good stack for any future baby of ours. Little Bear, Frog and Toad, Amelia Bedilia, those sorts of things.
