Shopping for a Baby is so Relaxing!

(72 °! Are we sure it's November? Tomorrow is supposed to be just as beautiful as today.)

We were supposed to go to a baby shower this afternoon, but I was afraid we might pass along our cold germs, and I certainly wouldn't want to give them to a lady who's 8 months pregnant. We had fun shopping for it this morning though. Eler Beth and I went to Burlington Coat Factory, one of the places where the mother had registered, and we had fun putting together a whole basket full of gifts. (Yes, I waited til the last minute to buy a gift!)

We dropped off the gift and came on back home. Eler Beth could have gone, but didn't want to go without me. I had a bit of a fever last night, though, and a scratchy throat all day. I was worried about Thomas. He was really feeling bad last night and this morning but went on into work anyway. I had tried to get him to go to his doctor yesterday after work, but he always waits until he's tried all his home remedies first. Well as soon as he got home this afternoon he said, "Where can I go to get some antibiotics?" So we went to the Little Clinic at Walgreens. There was a time when he could shake off these colds pretty easily, but now they almost always go into an upper respiratory infection.

Nothing really interesting to talk about. I'm reading The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley. I'll let you know how I like it when I finish it. Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Make sure Thomas understands he does nobody any favors when he goes to work sick. These days, if you are sick, stay home.

I love baby shower shopping! I think it is so much fun finding a fun theme and putting a basket together! :) Usually end up spending way too much money but it's always so much fun - also always try to find something for mom to include that goes along with that theme!

Hope you are all feeling better soon!

I went to a baby shower today. There were 60 people there and it lasted over 4 hours. It was fun but exhausting. It's fun to see all of the new things they have for babies nowadays. By the way it was almost 80 degrees here today. Anne

oh how fun to shop for a baby! wise not to go if you were a bit under the weather. I think as we get older (though we hate to admit that we are getting older) we just can't shake those things off like we did in our youth; hope Thomas feels better soon (as well as you too Lori :)

I love going to baby showers! I think you made the right decision to stay away this time.

Have a good weekend.
