Winter Time Blues

When I close my eyes and dream about places that I would rather be instead of Wiesbaden, Germany, this is one place that comes to mind. One year ago today (and seriously, I think it was exactly a year ago) Deaner and I were on our honeymoon in Tamarindo Costa Rica. Paradise on earth. What I wouldn't give right now to be sitting in this exact chair, sipping a cold beverage and soaking up the sun. It was 80 degrees and sunny for the 5 nights that we stayed at the Capitan Suizo and being that it was March, it was a great break from the cool weather in Atlanta. Now that is it 24 degrees and FRIDGID in Germany, I'm think I would appreciate a vacation like this 100 times more. If I can just hold on until Greece at the end of May! Hopefully things will continue to be uneventful with my pregnancy and the doctor will feel comfortable letting me go. Otherwise, we might have problems.
I met Deaner today for lunch and enjoyed a nice big calzone at the pizza place near where he works. It is sort of sad that it is only 5:00pm and I am already thinking about the spaghetti that is on the stove simmering for dinner. I have been HUNGRY lately! I seriously doubt the my zero weight gain will hold up at this next doctor's appointment.

I am working tomorrow and Friday and while I am not dreading it too much, I'm not really looking forward to it. I'm not nervous at all since I have subbed for this person before and the two kids that she works with are pretty easy. I'm just hoping that everything goes smoothly and that the days go by quickly! Before I know it, the weekend will be here! This weekend I am hoping to pick out colors for the baby's room and to start looking at carpet samples. I'm sure that this is exactly what Deaner wants to do on the weekend but if we wait much longer, I won't be able to paint the room by myself. That should motivate him! And don't worry, paints here aren't usually latex based so the fumes aren't anything like paint back in the States. We also have to move the guest bedroom from it's current location up to the empty spare room on the top floor. All this should give me several projects next week. Deaner has to travel to England on Wednesday and what better way to spend my time?

Alright, I'm off. Deaner annouced that he is really tired and isn't going to go to the gym today. Something must be up! But he is on his way home and I am going to clean up a bit first. Happy Hump Day!
