I'm pretty happy with how I've been powering through my lengthy to-do list. The tasks that are left are all on the calendar - packing the hospital bag and pre-registering, the baby shower date, the car seat installation, etc. So hopefully I'm just going to spend my last trimester (eek!) finishing up the pregnancy books, meeting with my doula, and attending childbirth classes. And sleeping. It promises to be a busy season at work as well but for now I have a good excuse for occasional flakiness.

This weekend was pretty typical. The snow on Saturday morning was a nice touch. We went to Macy's and Target, and then to Barnes and Noble to unfreeze my Nook. Unluckily the Nook lady wasn't able to fix it, but luckily it was (somehow) still under warranty so I got a new Nook.

Then we went to see "The Hobbit." Overall I was pretty disappointed. I can't believe PJ is stretching this out into a trilogy. Honestly, how many orc battles can I sit through? With Bassou?! That said, I did like the visual references to LOTR (since a lot of the same stuff was probably re-used! also from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe), the music, and the gorgeous NZ scenery. Other commentators have pointed out the lack of female characters (was that a brief glimpse of dwarf-women at the beginning?) and that was disappointing, though understandable since the book was pretty male-centric as well.

We ended the evening at another farewell open house. MoBob had another dinner to attend so we didn't stay as long as I'd wished. I was pretty flat at the end anyway. I'm doing better on back-to-back events but it's definitely not like before.
