Labor Day To Do List

This Labor Day will consist of a few naps, free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, probably some yard work, a few laps around the block with Jake, catching up on laundry, reading the final chapters in my book and figuring out which one to start next, thinking about Clark, listening to the "classical music medley" station on Pandora Radio because that really makes him bump around, trying to keep Aaron from getting distracted so he can work on his moot court case, a little bit of pilates/yoga, maybe cleaning up a little bit (that's a big fat maybe), taking a picture of Aaron at my 23 weeks pregnant point, working on my address list for Adrea (almost done), making some homemade chocolate chip cookies for Aaron to snack on while he works on his project, maybe giving Jake a bath (doubt that's going to happen), and that's really all I can think of on the spot. 

Let me explain a few of the items on that list. We are going to get free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches because they are giving them away to those wearing their favorite sports team logo. So we will bust up in there sporting our maroon and white in the land of the red and blue and enjoy our yummy fried chicken sandwiches. Also, I'm thinking about getting a chocolate milkshake. 

I'm going to take a picture of Aaron's belly at 23 weeks pregnant because he is gaining sympathy weight at the exact same rate I am gaining baby weight, and I want to start documenting his belly growth as well as mine. At my last doctors appointment, after they weighed me, Aaron stepped on the scale just for kicks and giggles and my jaw dropped to the floor after I saw the number that the scale landed on. I won't give specific numbers, but lets just say I understand why we had to buy him bigger britches. Maybe we shouldn't take advantage of the free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches after all. And maybe I should fix him a bowl of fruit to snack on while he works on his project instead of chocolate chip cookies. 

I recently discovered that listening to "classical music medley" station on Pandora Radio gets Clark moving around a good bit. I don't know how I stumbled upon this particular station, but it is amazing. I think I am hooked. Normally, I am not a classical music kind of gal, but this station is different. It plays my favorite hymns and makes me unbelievably calm and happy. As an added bonus, for some reason Clark gets a kick out of it (no pun intended). I'm thinking he likes it as much as I do. Or, its possible that he hates it and he is trying to tell me to turn that jibberish off. But for the next few months, I am in control, and I'm going to keep listening to it. 

Since it is gorgeous outside, I think I'm going to end this rambling post and get started on my activities for the day. Feel free to call at the end of the day and find out how much I actually end up accomplishing. I hope everybody enjoys their day off.

Well, this is very funny...but I think I would rather see a belly pic of Kelly-Bo-Belly than the one you plan. Not that I don't think Aaron has a cute tummy but really, it is no contest whose is cuter!
