every day i’m shuffling

Baby Update: No baby! Well, you knew that. I will tell you when there is one. Well, there IS one, it’s just freeloading off me and my delicious iron. Stop eating all the iron, baby. And the calcium. It’s not manners.

Apart from that, things are fine. I was about to roll into a rant but really, it’s been going pretty good. I no longer run anywhere, or pick up things other than with my toes, and I can only wear about three items of clothing (how can I pack a hospital bag when I am currently using/wearing the things that should be packed?) but Melbourne’s weather has not been overly hot, my feet and ankles have not swollen to prodigious proportions, I can still sleep and I take it on faith that I still have a lower body, even though I can’t really see it. Maternity leave is an odd thing and I have baked many a slice and cleaned out cupboards and sewed stuff and put up the Christmas tree and all manner of things that I had not gotten around to before. I am trying to stop Pulling Stuff Out To Organise, and instead concentrate on Putting Stuff Back So The House Looks Presentable; harder than you might think, considering the tiny house and the sheer amount of stuff I have pulled out. I have a LOT of stuff. A LOT. And that was before the Baby Paraphernalia began marching into the house; a march which I’m sure will only continue at ever greater rates once there is, you know, an actual Baby to be using the Paraphernalia.

Anyway, just thought I’d check in. Hi!

    I did a double-take on the post title, it cracked me up. Our 2-year-old grandson was introduced to Party Time a few months ago, and he dances to it incessantly. He was the star of our other daughter’s wedding, starting with a featured solo danced to Party Time in which he was surrounded by a ring of ALL 150 guests. He danced nonstop for 4 hours, had every gorgeous 20-something girl after him all night, and cried when he was finally carried off by his parents to bed!

    (I don’t think there are any photos of him dancing up yet on Flickr — try a flickr people search for “bettyschendel”.)

    Looking forward to virtually-meeting Baby!
