A Post About Nothing

I have been sitting here for several minutes trying to come up with a good topic to post about tonight, and I came up with...nothing.

I feel like there has been nothing special/significant going on that's worthy of sharing with the world, and I hate to bore my readers by writing about ho-hum things. However, since I can't seem to find an inspiration tonight, i'll just write down a few random thoughts.

1. Stephanie and I have been on our own since Saturday, because, as I might have mentioned previously, this is Dan's busy time at work. He spends the last two weeks of August training his new staff for the upcoming school year, which means he leaves the house at 7, and doesn't return until 9 or 10 at night. It's hard not to have him here for our normal routines, and Stephanie spends a lot of time asking for her Daddy.

2. I'm shocked that I really can't yet complain about doing everything parenting/household related by myself. It hasn't felt stressful yet, and in fact there are certain things i'm enjoying about it. Like getting to make "kid" dinners. (Mac & cheese, grilled cheese, frozen pizza, chicken nuggets, etc.) I would feel guilty serving those things for dinner if Dan were here, and in fact he doesn't even like 3 out of 4 of them. But when it's just Stephanie and I, anything goes!

3. Stephanie's molars have now come through enough that they no longer bother her. Thank goodness. The waking at night and being cranky all day has ended. Phew! Of course only the bottom ones are in, but at least i'll know what to expect when those top ones decide to make their appearance.

4. We apparently had an earthquake today. Well, that's not entirely true. The earthquake happened in Virginia, and we felt the repurcussions of it. It was a nannying day for me, and the girls were sleeping. I was reading on the couch, and it started to vibrate. I thought either it was pregnancy related off-balanced-ness, or an airplane that was causing things to shake. (Doesn't make much sense looking back, but I would never have thought it was an earthquake.) Later I saw from other people's Facebook status's that it was indeed an earthquake.

5. On a weather-related note, we're supposed to get effects from Hurricane Irene this weekend. I'll be stocking up on food, water, and batteries because i've found that the more prepared you are, the less likely it is that you'll actually see the severe weather!

Ok, I honestly can't even come up with any more random thoughts. Pathetic, I know. If you're still reading, thanks for finishing out this boring post. I promise that the next one will be more interesting! (I hope so anyway...)
