Hm. I'm sitting here staring at the screen because I know there was something I had thought about for a subject for a post. I even vaugely seem to remember thinking of most of what I would write for that subject. Beyond that, everything is a blank. Cannot remember what it was at all. Nope, not even a glimmer of what it was. So why am I telling you all this, you ask? Well, a couple of reasons, really. Hoping that as I sit and type I will remember what it was I had been thinking of saying and so that you will know that I really did have something to say. Just because I can't remember what that thing was is irrelevant.
Maybe it had to do with the fact that this morning I read an article in the newspaper about how the Chinese consider 8-8-08 to be a lucky day so many are going to try to make it so they have their babies on that day and for the rest of the morning I thought that was my due date and how it would be kind of fun for the baby to be born on that day. Only kind of fun. I never make it to the due date, so it wouldn't be fun in that aspect. Then as I was sitting in the doctor's office waiting for them to call my name for my monthly check-up, it dawned on me that my due date isn't 8-8-08. According to the nurse, it's the 7th. (Which she mentioned today in asking me when my due date was because the receptionist had written down that I'm 30 weeks along. Would have missed a couple of appointments if I were that far along. Would have also missed getting the Rhogam shot-which I wouldn't really complain about if I didn't actually need it-I do hate getting shots.) So in order for the baby to be born on that day, I would have to go past my due date. And that really doesn't sound like fun to me. But for those interested, I scheduled the ultrasound appointment today. That will be on the 27th of March.
Seeing as that's the only thing I can come up with that it might have possibly been, most likely that was the subject I had been thinking of. Of course, I was wrong in my thinking for it so instead of posting this, I really should delete it. But I probably won't. Because I'm insane.
