Mary arrived safe & sound on Saturday. We ended up having a couple we recently met J&D over for dinner. Probably about the only lesbians we know in the area so it was nice and we never have people over to our house so that was fun too. We do have a pretty nice house so it's nice to show it off once in a while. Anywho, they are a lil' bit strange as far as they've been together for 11 years *yikes* and J doesn't really seem out. But to each their own and I guess they're going to try to have a baby soon so that will be nice. I definitely want to connect with other gay & lesbian families in the area so our kid isn't the only one. Though I guess it's unlikely we'll still be living here come school age or whatever. That's too much to think about.
So we had a fun evening - I made some manicotti and we played Buzz Word. Everyone got to enjoy some wine except for me. Hmph! I have been pretty good with the not being tempted but being the only one not drinking definitely sucked. Mary thinks I can have small glasses every once in a while but I'd rather not. I've always been disgusted when I've seen prego women indulging in even a lil' bit of alcohol.
This morning we went to brunch which was SO nice. We have been wanting to try this sort of fancy brunch place but knew it wasn't a bring the boys type of place. So I took all my energy of not being able to have a mimosa and put it into eating like a prego woman. LOL. I've not indulged in the "eating for two" yet. Afterall, I always think that expression is crazy - I'm eating for myself and a fetus - NOT 2 adults. But I did enjoy the brunch buffet and pigging out on an assortment of items. I've also decided to have a non-vegetarian pregnancy so my new love - BACON.
We lounged around for the rest of the day and caught up on DVR'd shows. Oh, life is sweet without the 2 terrors. I can't say I really miss them, in fact I'm dreading their arrival. If they were BOTH sweet and loving and got along for more than 2 minutes, maybe I'd want them home sooner rather than later. The week of their appointments will also start as soon as they get home. So we were both devastated when we asked for them to come home at 4:00 and the respite provider said she'd be in town (for her other foster placement) around 12. I guess our peace and leisure had to end at some point.
