Sometimes My Own Worst Enemy, and Sometimes I Love It. LOL

Tuesday I woke up bright and early which would have been o.k., if I had gone to sleep immediately after arriving home from work at 1:30 a.m. I didn't. So after about 3-1/2 hrs. of sleep, I tried to rub the sleep from my eyes and get out of bed. The destination was "Ultrasound Specialists" who do ultrasounds and fetal photos. When we arrived, my daughter filled out a form, and received was handed a binder with instructions. The binder was just kind of a silly thing. How to hold and not hold and feed a baby the right way, and the purely ridiculous. It was mildly amusing. Then we went into a room and she got up on the table. There was a huge console and small screen. Just to the side of the table was a large tv screen and a soft, comfy couch and Bethany's friend Christine and I had a seat and prepared for the "show." As a result, I now know that I am going to be the proud grandmother of a baby girl alien. LOL Most of the video of my granddaughter was the standard black and white 2D, but there is also some 3D color video. Since Bethany is only 16 weeks, a little early for the 3D we were informed, she still looks somewhat "skeletal" and that makes her look a bit like an alien in 3D ultrasonograpy.
Still, it was apparent that she is an alien with her mother's nose. :) At least it is the same shape. She was a busy little thing. :) I had intended to put up some of the video, edited of course, but right now my computer doesn't think it should recognize my dvd player. But hopefully soon!

Afterwards, we had lunch/brunch or something of that nature at IHOP. Trying to find low fat at restaurants is definitely a challenge. I had to bring a salad for a potluck at work, so I came home, headed to Smith's for some salad shopping, came home, made a salad, and got ready for work. At about 11 p.m. I was seriously falling asleep. I finally woke a little after a brisk walk around the building twice. After work I went into one of the batches I was entering data on and double-checked. It was a wise move. Some of the errors were somewhat humorous, but only because I caught them.

Anyway, while I was online I noticed that This Providence was opening for The Academy Is in Boise on March 21st. Then I realized that March 21st is a Saturday, so I mulled over the idea of making the 5 hour drive to see them. Ed said he was o.k. with it so I bought a ticket. I fully intend to be back for church at 10 a.m. on Sunday (give or take a few minutes.) I will definitely need prayers on that one! LOL Who needs sleep?

Last time I saw This Providence was in September. I'm looking forward to seeing them again.

Miles to go, but I'd better catch a few zzzzzzzzzzzz's.

God's blessings to all and to all a good ... night.. day... whatever it is, wherever you are.
