Two more days ...

Dan is on another training trip for work, this time in NYC. Instead of enjoying it, it sounds like he's pretty homesick. I don't blame him -- I would be miserable being away from Olivia overnight, never mind for several days or a week. He's going to a Yankees game tomorrow night, weather permitting, which will check another of the MLB stadiums off his list. I wish I could be there with him.

Yesterday wasn't too bad -- I picked up some junk food (shocking, I know) around 8:30 p.m. and headed to my parents' house. They entertained her and I was able to eat using both hands, a rare treat. I realized about halfway through my burger and fries that I was bent over and shoveling the food in ... sort of like someone who's used to their meals being interrupted might do. I wonder how I got into that habit!

Today we trekked over to Target, this time going to a different location because I feel like I'm at the other one nearly every day. And since I ran into the ex-husband the last time I was there, well, let's say that I wasn't all that keen to return. I bought a bunch of hangers for the closet in the hopes that I might be able to get all my pre-maternity clothes out of the Space Bags and hung up this week. I also got some safer baby wash/shampoo and lotion after consulting the girls on one of the message boards I'm on and the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database. The Johnson and Johnson stuff we were using was rated a 4, meaning a moderate hazard. I got some California Baby bodywash/shampoo that was rated 1. Between this, BPA in bottles, soy products causing issues, organic vs. non-organic milk, and even play sand dangers ... ah, there's a lot to think/worry about. I'm trying -- though if you know me, you know it's a difficult feat -- not to panic and to just make small changes.

Speaking of milk, I should have bought some when we were out and it wasn't raining. Now we have none, but the thought of dragging her out in the elements just so I can indulge a cereal craving doesn't sound too appealing. I might have to eat some Oreo Cakesters instead. Healthy!

The Skin Deep website is making me nutty. How can Eucerin be so horrible?! Gah. (by the way ovi=vanessa=toughontruthv, and yes I am stalking you - I found you through Betsy's blog.)
