Baby Clothes

We hit the old Goodwill to find some shorts for Jeff today, but since they had no shorts that he liked, we wandered over to the Baby section. We got 6 wash cloths for $1.50 and four onsies for $1.29 each. Three of the onsies were Carter's brand. I LOVE Carter's stuff and I've been down to the Carter's outlet in Calhoun a few times to buy gifts for friends. I looked up similar Carter's onsies on the website today and found out that on those three onsies, we saved somewhere between $15 and $21! The ones I was looking at on the internet were $9 marked down to $6. And I paid $1.29 a piece:-) That makes me smile knowing that I paid less for all three onsies than one costs on sale!

School's out for summer. . .

School's out forever! Who ever thought that the great philosopher, Alice Cooper, would have written a song about my life? (sooooo joking)

But really - I started my life as a "retired" person today. Now what I have to look forward to this fall is doing all I can to get ready for our new arrival:-)

Nothing profound today, either. Just noticing how Gizmo sleeps a LOT like Garfield:

Pagan Church

Yeah, I bet some people are checking this entry out thinking I going to say something profoundly spiritual. But really this is just to share my amusement that my midwife's last name is Church and the doctor that oversees her has the last name of Pagan. So together they are Pagan/Church! Both are believers, by the way. I think if I was a believer and my last name was Pagan, I might just consider a name change:-)

Well, that's all of my senseless musings for now.

Business of Being Born

If you're interested in why we chose home birth and you have an hour to kill, check out the movie "The Business of Being Born." This link will take you to it for free. Disclaimer: a couple of the women say really bad words during their deliveries (wouldn't you?) and of course since it is showing births, there will be some nudity.
