Since I can't come up with titles to my posts, I figured I might as well just countdown the days until the baby is due. That way I can look back and remmeber how I was feeling so far out (or so close when the time comes).

Anyway, Byron's birthday was good. We had Meaghan come and babysit (she is great with Brannan) and we went and blew $170 at Flemings! OMG! It was all a gift card for watching some friends' dogs for two weeks, but man, I don't think I've ever spent that much money on one dinner for two people before - and I wasn't even drinking! So we were going to see a movie, but dinner ended up taking so long, we missed it and went to Monkey Pants instead. It was weird being in a bar and drinking water only. I can't imagine doing that all the time. It is probably one of the last times I will be in a bar for a while.

I found out yesterday that my unemployment benefits have run out. Man, that gave me a nasty feeling in the pit of my stomach. I really, really, really don't want to go back to work. I don't know what I am going to do. I don't have any sort of career goals - I really just want to be a mom! I don't know what my husband thinks. We haven't sat down and talked about it just yet. I think we may be ok with just his income, but we need to sit down and talk it out before we make any moves. Plus, with the baby coming, it just doesn't seem right to start in on some career path. Oh, who knows. More about all that later I think.

Anyway, I have to get dinner ready. Everything is feeling good baby-wise. I haven't had hardly any nause and I have been feeling the baby moving around a lot more lately. It is getting pretty exciting being at 20 weeks. And, I got approached by a woman today asking me for pregnancy/workout advice at the gym. Pretty good for the ego, that's for sure!

blowing gift money on dinner is the best way to spend it. I need to know what you got to eat. Steak? Seafood? Or cheesecake...
