Three (3!) Things Thursday

1. I love how many guesses there are so far on yesterday’s “guess the baby arrival day” contest. Everything ranging from March 14 (which, no! too early John!) to April 10 (which no! too late, Megan!) My personal preference would be to give birth sometime between 3/31 & 4/6. (Although if I’m completely honest, if I could wrap up my work stuff & have that baby any time after March 19 would be fine. So – get your guesses in! Win a prize! Because who doesn’t like guessing on a perfectly random event?

34.5 weeks pregnant


2. I made steel-cut oats this morning for breakfast for the first time. Much tastier than my usual instant oatmeal. Also much more time consuming. I think that I will have to make this ahead of time & start taking it to work to heat up. Any oatmeal advice for me?

3. Today is the first day of my exciting birthday 4-day weekend! Which means tomorrow is my birthday! This is the weekend of 35! I will turn 35 tomorrow. I will be 35 weeks pregnant on Monday! Also on Monday? 35 days left until my due date! I feel that I need to do 35 things this weekend. Or maybe just eat 35 pancakes…or cupcakes…or some other kind of cakes. ANYWAYS – happy weekend of 35 to me!

    March 16th.

    O wait, that’d be problematic because then my birthday celebrations would be pre-empted. It’s all about me, you see. šŸ˜‰

    Anyway. Hm! I like March babies (we’re pretty awesome), so I’m going to say March 22nd.

    I much prefer steel cut oats to the instant gick. Plus, it’s a great source of fibre.

    Happy birthday in advance, I’ll drink thirty-five sips of gin for you tomorrow. Or something.

    My Sis makes a bunch of steel-cut oatmeal and reheats it daily until gone. She likes it with yogurt .
    So, what is the dif between that stuff and regular?
    Happy Birthday tomorrow! I remember the first time hearing about you, your mama told us your EDC back in 1976, when she came back to SD for our wedding!

  3. I’ve heard of making steel cut oats in the crockpot the night before and then it’s ready to go in the morning, but I haven’t tried it.

    You are ridiculously cute. Just sayin.

  4. Mmmm, those oats look good. I’ve heard of the crockpot method, too – might be worth a try! Also, for the sake of your mental health (and your bladder!) I’m really hoping Alvie is NOT as late as 4/10 – but all the good guesses were taken!
