athene: (BA just born with mommy)
For those who don't follow me on other social media, Benjamin Ansel was born on Saturday, October 10 at 3:24pm.


Here is my birth story:

Benjamin’s birth was nothing at all like I expected. I figured having given birth once, I knew what I was in for. Boy was I wrong.

First, I did not expect to go early. Since LP was a week late, I figured that Bae would be at least a few days late. As I said in my “On the Clock” post, I still had lots on my to-do list to do before the baby got here. So when my water broke with the blood on Friday morning it really freaked me out (besides the OMG, blood) part.

( Read the rest on my baby blog )

This weekend I pretty much finished my paper for Adv. Dig with the exception of the parts that I don't know because I have to call my contact on Monday. Of course, it took me most of the weekend so I haven't gotten much of the other work I was going to get done done.

On Friday instead of going to the gym, [livejournal.com profile] lordaerith and I grabbed [livejournal.com profile] iskanderia and went to get snoballs at Casey's New Orleans Style SnoBalls. Not as good as Hansen's, but at least they were like New Orleans snoballs and not snocones. Texted AH (who still needs a name) to let her know I had one. She called me a traitor, but I told her that they weren't as good as hers.

Got home and napped for a little while. Don't remember what we did for the rest of the evening.

Saturday - worked on paper. oh, and finished Tangled Webs by Anne Bishop.

That night was Bubbles and Boom's baby shower. (everybody say AWWWW. They're having a faire baby (everybody say "wow, they're nerds"). Even though I was tired and not feeling well, I'm glad we went cause almost everybody was there even Bell was in from Houston! And LuckyStar had this great idea for it. A bunch of people bought white onesies in a variety of sizes as well as non-toxic fabric paint & markers and a bunch of stencils and we decorated them at the party. Now the baby has a whole set of totally unique onesies that were made with love. I told LuckyStar that I'm totally stealing her idea when I get pregant this should become a tradition because it's such an awesome idea.

Today I finished the paper (yay) and made dinner and [livejournal.com profile] syhira came over to watch BSG.

And now, to read gazillion pages on copyright for class on Tuesday.

Sunday woke up late and went to [livejournal.com profile] msbutterpecan and [livejournal.com profile] honor_knight's baby shower at their new place. Had a lovely time with many lovely people. Was kidnapped by Squeaker (4 years old) into her bright pink bedroom for some "now I'm the mommy and you're the little kid" play time. She's so adorable. It made me think of how one day I'll get to play games like this with my own child. Talking about my own future children, my mother is already knitting baby sweaters so "just in case she dies before my children are born, they can have a sweater from grandma." Biggest jewish mother guilt trip ever! Eh, i figure in 2-3 years or so. I just want to get through grad school first.

Btw, Ms BP, here is the Queen of Wands I was talking about.

wow, I haven't written in FOREVER!!! Let me see, what happened to me?

First, monday the 19th Flip came into class 40 min late with a bleading cut on her forehead and proceeded to fall down. We called the Public Safety and stuff and the ambulence guys came to get her. I went with her to hospital. We were there from about 2pm to 6pm. I was there when she woke up. She couldn't remember any of what happend to her. it was scary. but they did a CT scan and an EKG or something like that and said she was fine. So, luckily another friend showed up with food and a car and drove us home. The whole experiance just weired me out so, after a few hours of getting no work done, I packed up my stuff for Thanksgiving and headed over to Aerith's.
Also, that night Aerith's sister gave birth to Theresa Joan two weeks early at about 11pm. I guess it was a day for hospitals.

Tues- Haven died. Aerith and I beat Gauntlet Dark Legacy and started to cheeze the game. Learned how to post while troting.

wed - Swan and Kiten showed up and we played more Gauntlet Dark Legacy.

thurs - drove to eastern mass. Got to see little TJ. Her mom came home from the hospital that day. Had chinese food for dinner, but it didn't matter because we got to see the baby :) Aerith and I got to stay in a hotel room ;)

fri more babyness!! Started to freak out about all the work i had to do.

sat went to the mall. The body shop was out of the Define and No Frizz cream :( Ended up getting a dishes and silverware set for $45 at a kitchen store that was going out of busness. Drove home. Saw the Twelfth Night movie w/Helena Bothem Carter and Ben Kingsly. Was very good.

sun did LOTS of Greek

monday the 26th - had a mock final in horseback riding. got Percy. ick he is such a pain! but i groomed and saddled and bridled him and didn't get kicked or bitten or anything. ha.
Then I pulled an almost all-nighter (3.5 hours of sleep) to write a paper. the only good thing was that i got to call dad at 1 in the morning (8am his time)! He got remarried.

tuesday - turned in the paper late, but at least on the day it was due! Whimsy was a pain during riding, but not a Percy-like pain, so that is good. Was up till 1am doing greek, but did over 30 lines in less than an hour at one point. YAY ME!!!

Things I must do before the school semseter is over:
1. 3 exams - 2 in class - 1 a pratical for horseback riding - 1 self-schedualed at Amherst.
2. 3 papers - 1 2-3page obersvation report, 1 5 page write up on Peter Brook, 1 10 page for Comedy and Romance
3. 2 reports - 1 due friday for Greek. 1 article one
4. Greek translation lines (finishing Hecuba)
5. Finishing Horseback riding journal (due mon)
6. Reading Winter's Tale
7. Rehearsing scene with Flip.
I think that's everything.

i think i can do it all (I hope)
