Holy crap, 6 months is not that long!

I have posted a lot this week! Mostly random stuff, but still. I think it's mostly because I'm very bored at work. Want to know what I've been doing this morning? Staring at my first of seriously, at least 50 spreadsheets with 60,000 plus lines, looking for inconsistencies in numbers. Yes. I will need a new contact prescription by the end of next week :( Intermittently, I go to look at the new intercompany job postings, lol.

As I sit here, probably causing my eyes to age prematurely, I just keep thinking about everything that I really need to be doing instead! Don't you hate that? I have so many things that I really need to get done! But by the time I get home after work, I'm so exhausted that I just can't do it. Work is really a waste of my time :)

Yesterday I bought a Christmas/birthday present for my very best friend in the whole world. She has been having a rough time the past couple of months, and it took me forever to figure out a great gift for her! Now that I have it, I'm really excited to give it to her! She doesn't read my blog, but I still don't want to give the secret away yet, but I really want to tell. I'm giving it to her tonight :)

Today is December 11. I am exactly 14 weeks today, and I am due in exactly 6 months! I plan on taking a picture tonight of my growing belly. (I have also had this same plan every day for the past 2 weeks, so no promises!) Just yesterday I noticed a little growth spurt, and it is starting to become more noticeable in my everyday tops. We have a little Christmas thing for Lee's work on Saturday night, and I tried on what I was thinking about wearing the other night, just to make sure, and I'm glad that I did! Uh, I'm not sure if it's going to work! The top is a little too short now and it's kind of awkward with my maternity jeans, and especially with the fact that I still need the bella band to hold them up. As much as I like the maternity jeans I have, I think that they stretched out a little when I washed them. I think that my regular Gap jeans did that too. Oh well, I'll figure something out.

I kind of feel like we are in limbo with baby stuff. Even my doctor the other day was saying how it's kind of boring right now because we can't really plan anything! Haha, I didn't want to be the one to say it, but it kind of is! I've never pretended to be a patient person. This whole 6 more weeks until we can find out is killing me. I have NO idea how people wait to find out! I have NO idea how any of our parents did that! It would be one thing if we weren't planning on finding out the sex, because we could still decorate and stuff like that, but the baby's room will be VERY girly if it's a girl and much different from that if it's a boy, so really we have no choice but to wait! One thing that is hard for me to wait on is something that I want to make for the room. I know that I definitely want to hand paint letters for the baby's name. And I already have a ton of ideas on how I want to do them, so it's really hard for me not to start that! I mean, that's something that I could really start for either name, and just not use it yet if that's not what we're having, right? :) Who am I kidding, I wouldn't even have the energy to work on that right now even if I could!

My friend Jenny and I are having a baking party on Saturday!! I do a lot of baking for the holidays and I'm excited to get to share it with someone else this year, instead of just standing in the kitchen all by my lonesome like I have for the past couple of years. And then on Sunday, I think that Lee and I are going to do some Christmas shopping. I have planned on doing that the past couple of weekends, but I was too lazy, so this weekend we are definitely starting. And hopefully finishing! We are also going to look at kitchen cabinets. I think that we have decided that we will probably just redo the whole kitchen, contingent upon a couple of important things, but I think that it's going to work out! I'm hesitant to get too excited about it before we've made the absolute final decision, but I'm optimistic that it's going to happen!! Yay!

I just wrote about the same thing, how i have so much I need to do today, and work is just getting in my way, oh wait, but I am on here. I actually have stuff to do, but as you said, it is not fun stuff! AND MY PERSONAL stuff is far more important. I think.
6 months to go...that does not sound too bad! :)
are you going to post boy or girl when you find out?

Just wondering if you have checked the Chinese birth chart to see what it says about the sex of the baby. I have a 10 week old now and I was exactly the same way as you about having to know if it was a boy or girl. When I heard about the chart I started "interviewing" friends and family (about 15 people) and the chart predicted every single one of them correctly, including myself!
