Well, my birthday came and went. It's always an interesting thing to wake up on your birthday, a day that is reserved for you. Jon and I usually do some really fun things for birthdays, but it was more difficult this year with me being as pregnant as I am. I originally wanted to go to the zoo, but I knew that I wouldn't be able to walk around as fast or as comfortably as I usually would, so that is going to be reserved for when I am not pregnant.
I woke up the day of my birthday and Jon went to work, I managed to sleep in a little longer than I normally would. Then my doorbell rang and it was the guy to come and fix our air conditioner. It's been so hot lately, and of course on the hottest days of the year our a/c decided that it was going to stop working. Monday we came home from my mum's house and it was 88 degrees in our house. This was at about 9 at night, and it was colder outside than it was inside our house at this point. Now, before I was pregnant that wouldn't have been that big of a deal, but with me being essentially a slow cooker for a child I was miserable! So to have the a/c guy come on my birthday was probably one of the best presents ever- not that it really mattered, because it ALWAYS rains on my birthday. Every year, without fail, it has rained on my birthday, so by the time the a/c was fixed and kicking in, it had already dropped to lower temperatures and it was almost too cold inside.
After the a/c guy was done, my mum, Scot and I went and met Jon for lunch at our new favourite little restaurant: Souties. It's a British/South African restaurant that has the look, feel and presence of England. Everything in there reminds me of being across the pond. And it makes me miss it so much more. Jon and I are definitely going to be saving up so that we can go back.
Mum dropped me off at home and I managed to do some homework and take a nap, then when Jon came home he took me to the mall and I got a pedicure, and it was probably one of the most needed things for me! Not only because I can't bend over to do anything to my toes, but because it was so relaxing, and for an 8 1/2 month pregnant chick, everything hurts... all the time. My back, legs, tummy, everything! After my pedicure, Jon and I were going to go to see a movie but I didn't feel up to it, and so we came home and watched Ever After and just snuggled on the couch. It was nice and relaxing. And I was completely content. Now I just have to plan out Jon's birthday... :) because I won't be pregnant then anymore.
