Haven't been around in several days. My grandmother's funeral was Saturday and both of my brothers traveled a few thousand miles to come, so we spent a lot of time with them. Then Sunday I was just flat worn out. And last night we had a long meeting after which I just fell into bed.
I realized this weekend that every time I eat or smell chicken I get sick, like really really sick. This has been going on since the beginning, but I just made the connection. This morning was AWFUL because my niece, who lives with us, put a whole chicken in the crock pot over night to cook without my knowledge and the smell permeated the whole house through the A/C. I woke up with the worst nausea and I couldn't get out of my house fast enough!! I LOVE chicken usually! What is up with this???? Anyone else ever had such a severe aversion to something you usually eat a ton of?
Chicken is a biiiig one for women I've heard> if i smell it i usually get sick and i too love chicken. nut i am not eating much meat lately... its all gross to me right now.
But sadly I'm craving McDonald's cheeseburgers right now. Hello, weight gain!
I don't crave much of anything, but I have started eating meat again. Can't stomach the thought of chicken tho.
Urgh, I had my first "hormonal" moment last night. DH didn't like my announcement card ideas, which I have a GF design for me, and this just floored me. I was so upset the rest of the night that I couldn't think straight, but at the same time I'm sitting there thinking "why is this upsetting me so much??". I like them and I know my family will like them so I'm still going to send it to them, but he said he'd rather not use them with his family because he doesn't feel like it's "his" way of communicating.
The first one I'm going to email to my family when I'm on video Skype with them. The second I'm going to print out and mail to my grandfather.
AWWW welcome to the club. LOL I am uber emotional. It's annoying and super stressful on DH and I's relationship.
I think they are super cute by the way!
I love them Roxi! Super cute!
I haven't been terribly emotional yet. I've noticed it a few times and I hit my limit at a lot earlier hour as far as when I need to get some sleep or just break down and cry over nothing. My husband keeps on saying "And this is how I know you're pregnant" because I'm so tired and then really weepy/emotional if I don't get to go to sleep when I need to. This is the part I don't like about pregnancy.
My GF redid them so that they can be printed and now I'm going to use this one for everyone:
She resized is so that it will fit a postcard and I'm going to have one printed via SnapFish to send to my Grandfather in South Africa. i like the 3rd pic peeking at the bottom of the photostrip.
I like it Roxi! I love printing stuff through snapfish...especially since I can order it at the special price and then pick it up at Walmart. hehe
I'm sooooo ready for this week to be O.V.E.R!!! Testing all week and I'm just starting to feel funky now. Hello, long weekend!!
Sorry! Double post and I just noticed several days later. haha
Im so glad this week is over. Such a LONG and crappy week. Busy weekend but get to relax and spend time with my kids and family. I can not wait. My oldest got a bike from her school today and got my sons bike fixed tonight to.
ugh one of the posts are showing up for me
HA posting did the trick. Now I can read your post Kati. I'm sorry your week was so long and crappy. I hope your weekend turned out fantastic :).
Yea the weekend was a good one. Took my kids and my brother and his wife took their 4 kids and we went and saw Epic we grilled out even in the rain today was running around, going to the cemetary to visit my grandparents with my dad and brother and kids. Then spent the rest of the day doing laundry and spending time with the kids.
Sounds nice. We saw Epic last night. What did you think of it? We loved it We are working on laundry today. lol.
So... The family reunion I am helping plan (for DH's family) went from a super awesome Disneyland trip to thinking about camping. Don't get me wrong, I love camping... but I don't think it's that fun.. and then I'm going to be trapped around his family without an escape. I love them but.... I don't want to spend a week straight around all of them when I don't exactly fit in.
We really liked Epic. It was only the second movie I took my kids to and they did sooo much better this time and watched most of it.
As for the family reunion it sounds better than my family reunion with my moms side. lol Id do camping over disney ny day but thats me. I LOVE camping. You dont have to stay around them the whole time you can hike and fish and canoe/boat, swim and play and whatever. I havent been camping in years was going to try this year but IDK if Im going to try with being pregnant.
THREE DAYS LEFT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR!!!! WAAAHOOOOO!!!! I am sooooo EXCITED!!!!
We have school today and tomorrow, our awards ceremony and kinder graduation tomorrow night, and an end-of-year pizza party at IT'Z on Thursday!!! WAAAHOOOOOO!!!!!!
argh, i couldn't get into my account for the past week......finally back in...... HOpe all is doing well and yah for the end of the school year!! Camping while preggers.....don't know if i could do it, depends on how far along you'd be....although i'd make sure there were at least working toliets and showers...a lake you can swim in...if it's hot...
Im so glad theres only 3 days left of the school year. I am sooooo tired of my oldest daughters school. I got ANOTHER call that I had to go get her from school she had a RASH. No its freakin exema. Beyond annoyed so have some meds to put on it all. She got to stay with my dad thankfully so I could finish the day and Im greatful I had a dr appt anyways so I just snagged her and ran to the dr to get us both seen. Next year its 2 different schools for my older 2 kids.
Jules what happened with your account? Mine just got blocked because it's a hotmail email address. I had to write Missy to get it fixed. I'm relieved!
Yay for school being out. I think it's been out for a week or so here. We end in comparison to a lot of other areas. As a college student I finished a while back ago. Riley isn't in school yet... But come this fall! EEK! I'm probably going to cry. haha.
Camping wasn't too bad just last weekend. I like camping.. but I haven't been to DL yet. I want to go bad and I really want to take Riley. HE WOULD LOVE IT! But oh well. IT's going to be cabin camping. It just is also extra hard because baby will be about 6 months when we go.
