Nothing doing

Well, had another dr. appt today. He said I was completely closed at a zero so no induction date set. Thursday I will be 39 weeks. My next appointment is next Monday. He also said he thinks this babe is less than 8 pounds. That would be nice!! Guess I am gonna have to go into labor on my own. I am not sure I know how to do that-nerve wracking!!

She's going to Hollywood

We found out from her coach today that {r}'s baton team got first place. I think it was a first place out of two teams, but first nonetheless.

Ice Cream Freeze

{r} had her very first (and hopefully last, twirlers are an odd bunch) baton twirling competition today. She is still new to the sport so doesn't do those amazing things you are probably envisioning. Basically they have a team dance type thingy then they have to march. They do a basic march twice and a military march once. She got first (basic), second (basic) and second (military). I don't know how the team did because we didn't stay for those awards (they award for march right after it is done).

Her winning basic march.
Her military march (started about a half beat late).

Yes, that is a boy next in line. Who knew boys twirled? I sure didn't. Tug looked at {j} and said "When we get home we are going to do some boxing."

And team. Her coach added everything after the handstand yesterday which explains why they look as though they have no clue what is going on.

The Office ruined my life

Seriously Jam, seriously?? Cecilia Marie Halpert?


Guess it is back to the drawing board for girl names for us! Though Marie and Halpert were never truly in the running. But why did you have to go with Cecilia?

You're breaking my heart!

Wow, how boring am I?! Been awhile, huh? Things in the new house are going fine. That darn neighbor girl still rings the bell pretty much every day. I usually send her away, then she comes back. I am trying to limit her to playing only between 4 and 4:45. The girls have activities in the evening so it is easy to say, "Time for you to go, we have things to get ready for." She only comes over to jump on our trampoline (apparently she has been banned from another neighbor's trampoline for breaking the net or something). Her brother and some of his neighborhood friends ding-door-ditched us yesterday. Tug happened to be pulling back into the driveway at a great time and caught them. I am thinking having old people for neighbors wasn't so bad after all. They certainly don't ding door ditch you (though that would be hilarious!).

change 2: I actually did get a job doing the typing thing. It isn't medical transcription. It is working for a company that contracts out with most of the railroad companies when there are claims. They record what is said in the meeting, then I have to type it out. It is actually quite nice because the one thing I didn't really like about medical transcription was the medical part :) So far it has been about 2 weeks and the work is steady (though I get to just pick how much I want to work each day). I'll let you know if I actually get paid. It won't be much, but a couple hundred dollars a month extra would be nice.

change 3: We had to get a new washing machine. Ugh. That's all I have to say about that.

change 4: We have new friends. At the gymnastics competition I met one of {l}'s teammate's mom and she lives very close to us now. They came over last night for burgers and just to hang out. Next time we will teach them Euchre and Settlers of Catan. We are planning a mom's night out. A REAL HONEST TO GOODNESS MOM'S NIGHT OUT. I can't wait, it has been a LONG time! Now go away Erin (friend's name, not you my sister-in-law).

Now for some pictures because my mom is having anxiety attacks. . .
{l} on beam, this is a picture from the video so it is poor quality.
{s} caught with something in her mouth she shouldn't have been eating.
And after I made her spit it out.
What the girls were doing in their room with their friends last night. Apparently Bendaroos stick to the wall.
