A relaxing day of chores

I received some relieving news from Ultimate Josh this morning. Because of the Labor Day holiday, new comics are shipping Thursday this week instead of the usual Wednesday, so there's really no need for me to drive up to Huntsville to work at Haven Wednesday. Better yet, UJ has already taken care of things so Thursday is covered, too. He's a pal. It's not that I don't want to spend a day at Haven this week. I really do. I love it there. But it cuts four hours out of my day in driving alone, and with as much other stuff as I've got going on right now, I can really use the break.

Tuesday is the only day I usually have available for household chores, so this morning I've been washing laundry and dishes, vacuuming, grocery shopping, etc. I tried to get my oil changed at Wal-Mart, but they didn't have the oil filter my car would need. I may treat the Jetta to a car wash to make up for the oil disappointment.

Later today I'll be heading to St. Vincent's for OB GYN appointment #2. At least this time, we don't have a big question hanging over us, waiting to be answered. I anticipate a much less tense visit this time. Hopefully we'll get to see a new sonogram picture. Four weeks ago, the baby wasn't even half the size of a coffee bean, but now it's supposedly a little bigger than a plum, so it should look somewhat more human this time.
