Thursday Thoughts

  • I am so happy today is Thursday and I am READY for the weekend!  I have a lot of house cleaning on the schedule, but otherwise fun times planned.
  • Saturday afternoon is my baby shower with my in town group of friends who are mostly co-workers of Dustin, spouses of his co-workers, or other Mommy friends who are in the same Mommy circle.  My friend Jess is hosting it at our house, thus the cleaning, and I'm not sure how many are actually planning to come.  Jess said she enlisted the help of our mutual friend Carragh, who happens to own a cake decorating business, so I am excited to see what pretty, amazing confectionery delights they come up with!
  • We have been wanting to get a nice set of patio furniture for years now, and just haven't gotten around to it.  I was hoping to get some in time for the shower, and found the perfect set, but won't be able to pick it up until next Wednesday.
  • I am almost finished cleaning our office/craft room so we can convert it to Austin's new bedroom.  We have company coming from Iowa at the end of the month, so I need to have it all done by then.  After they leave we will paint it and move him over.
  • I'm still not sure what to do for Father's Day.  Dustin loves to hike, so we will probably do something outdoors. 
  • Our dish washer started making a funny noise a couple of days ago.  We just bought the thing a couple of years ago, so it's still relatively new, enough so that it should not be making noises yet.  Dustin took off the bottom spinner thingy and it was FULL of calcium deposit.  The water here is so terrible and hard on appliances.  If I knew when we moved in what I know now I would have had a water softener installed because the water here is so damaging to appliances.  I am going to try one more cycle of vinegar to help clear it out and hopefully it will take care of the rattle. 
  • My friend Amanda finally had her newest little baby, a third boy.  Her cousin put on Facebook that the name was Zebadia, to which I thought "what kind of a name is that!"  I know that she is very traditional and into strong names, so it seemed like an odd fit to me.  The only thing I could figure was maybe her Marine husband had a colleague who died that had that name. When I looked it up the name actually is Biblical, but when Amanda finally posted the official news his name is actually Jedidiah. 
  • I think I have decided that I want to stop working on July 26, provided Katy doesn't decide to come sooner, which means I have 24 days of work left!


  1. I hope you have a great time at your shower!! OH!! I LOVE HER NAME!! :)

  2. How fun! Are you so excited to stay home? I actually have a friend whoes brother is named Zebadia. They call him Zeb. I guess once you know someone with that name, it's not so weird. :)

    Have a fun time at your shower! :)

  3. Have a great shower! Too bad it comes with so much work...

    I agree that you picked a great name! Here's to only 24 more work days!!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
