Random Bullet-ness

My phone rang at 5:42am this morning. Since my sister is probably gonna go into labor any second, I jumped out of bed ready to high tail it to the hospital. But it wasn't her. Just work. I got called in early to interview 3 bad guys who got caught breaking into a store. A couple hours of overtime is always nice but....

I'm pretty sleepy right now since I was up past midnight last night. Confession. I was watching Tori give birth to baby Stella. If you can figure out what I mean.... don't hold it against me. I happen to like her and her handsome hubby. They're a cute couple. In spite of the whole leaving their spouses to be together sordid affair stuff......

Speaking of my sister, she's due August 19th. But she has a pattern of delivering about 10 days before the doctor's prediction. Which means this weekend could be Baby T's big entrance.
We're all holding our breath to see how that goes. I told her the moment she feels the very first contraction or little leak of water breaking she needs to run... not walk ... to the car and get to the hospital. Otherwise we'll have a repeat of the bathtub incident. I'll let y'all know.....

By the way, I swiped the pic from her blog. I figured since she posted it, she wouldn't mind if I showed it over here, too. That's some belly, eh? :)

My new diaper bag came in the mail. I love it! But the color is a little more peachy pink than I'd prefer. But I love the style. So I'm sticking with it. Unless something else catches my eye sometime in the next 2 years before my referral. I only wish I were joking....

The rumors are that the CC*AA is gonna match thru January 27th. That's 2 days, peeps. Which really vigorously inhales (wink, Robin). It's going to take them 8 months just to refer all the log in dates in January. I'm in June. If they keep up that pace, I'll get a referral sometime in 2010. Hopefully. But let's not go there just now.....

The countdown is on to the big O. It's only 2 days away. No... not that big O. The Olympics, silly! I'm looking forward to the opening ceremony. I plan to be in front of my TV with a cocktail. As interested as I am to watch some of this unfold and as exciting as it is to realize this historical event is being held in the birthplace of my daughter...truth is I can't wait for it to be over. It's all I've heard about for the last 2 1/2 yrs since I started this adoption. I just want them behind me. Behind all of us....

I'm all tuckered out, folks. And my bullets don't want to work... so you just get plain old unexciting paragraphs. It's the best I can do. Nite y'all.

In general, I'm not a huge sports fan but I love the Olympics. CBC plays it basically all day which is great... although I suppose in this case it will be all night with highlights throughout the day. I think what I really like is that you get to watch all the obscure sports you never see any other time.

Rhonda said...

I'm SO with you about the Olympics...Usually I look forward to it, but this time I want them over. *sigh*

Noemi said...

That is one huge belly! I am also looking forward to the big O. Hopefully things will speed up after the Olympics :-).

Sandra said...

I am very excited about your sister having her baby so soon and to find out what the big T has been standing for :-)

I never thought about people wanting the Olympics to be over, but I can understand why.

Briana's Mom said...

My sis is about to go too! Her due date is also the 19th, but the doctor thinks she is going to be early. We are thinking next week sometime!

I understand you wanting the Olympics to be over - completely understand.

Your sister looks amazing and beautiful pregnant, hope little girl T shows her face and tells us her name SOON... clock is ticking.

I wish somehow this country and many, many others would show their support of the Chinese people by turning their TVs off- but I suppose that's almost an impossible task. I'm not even sure I'll be able to do it.

Joannah said...

I hate to admit that I like that show, too. My husband is appalled. Oh, well... He watches some crappier shows IMHO.

How very exciting that you may be an auntie again this weekend!!!
