Mini-Vacation

Since tomorrow is my birthday, I decided to take a couple days off. Today was a busy and fun day - I got up normal time, got Hulk to daycare, went and picked up some super cute shoes for the girls that someone was selling on my twins group, and then got a massage and a hair cut. I haven't gotten my haircut in over a year! What a difference!

Then, I went to Babies R Us and made a registry! And came home and spent the last hour organizing my outlook contacts because my girlfriends are throwing me a shower! I totally didn't expect to get a second one, you know - since I had a shower last year at the exact same time!?!? But I'm excited. I love just the idea of having a party to celebrate the impending arrivals, but it'll be nice to get a few presents too, I must admit. We really need to get a lot of stuff that I didn't think we'd have to buy again (you know, because Hulk would have outgrown it by the time we had our second baby?) - fortunately, I've managed to get a lot used from friends and the twin's group - but things like mattresses I'm not willing to get used.

I'm now going to go watch some TV and knit for a little bit before I get Hulk. Tomorrow, the plan is about the same - Aaron may even take the day off and do some baby room work. I'm planning on milking my birthday for all it's worth!

If anybody actually needs a 2nd shower so close to the first, it's you!

Oh, those are cute shoes. Do you think I could join a twin group just for the shoes? Or would that be cheating since I only have the one baby?

it just occurred to me that you are now proud parents of "Irish triplets".
