Maddie- how are you doing today? When do u go back to the dr?
Thanks for checking up on me Jules. I'm doing alright. Anxious for the appointment. It's on Tuesday. I tried to listen to the heartbeat with my MIL stethoscope but I couldn't hear anything. And baby isn't super move-y right now so I stopped so I don't freak myself out. :/
I painted the trim in the house I'm moving into and hate! the color. So we are going to buy paint in the morning and paint it. I'm glad I didn't finish all the trim already! We kinda took the evening off since we have to buy stuff and we didn't want to drive the 15 miles to the store and back. I'm feeling overwhelmed and just wish we could move in already. Tomorrow we have to cut the trim and paint it and let it dry and then work on doing some cleaning up so that we can put the baseboards on on Sunday. I wanted to try to move in this next week or so but I think we are going to have to work at least one more weekend. We have to be outta our apartment on Aug 31 but we have to have it rent ready too.. which I'm an obsessive cleaner.
Woah sorry to ramble so much.
Cant sleep. Gah. Were at my parents house tonight. Had a weird smell in my apartment that I couldnt figure out where it was coming from so I packed a bag for me and my older kids since my youngest is with her dad this weekend and came to my parents house. Also brought stuff for breakfast lunch and snack lol. My parents and brother are gone till later today so I messaged my mom instead of calling or texting (they are working the races in Newton Iowa). She messaged me back asking why so when I woke up I told her and she messaged me back since she was online. I hate sleeping in a chair.
Speaking of sleep, we had the craziest household Friday night, wee hours of Sat. morning! I woke up to DH yelling: "PARDON ME, EXCUSE ME! PARDON ME, EXCUSE ME, PARDON ME!!!" at the top of his lungs!! I looked and he was raised up halfway in bed and just yelling. The dogs were going crazy and DS was whimpering in the other room. He was yelling in his sleep!!! OMW, it was so funny, but also quite freaky!! I punched him to wake up, but he never did. Ultimately DS ended up in bed with up b/c he woke up and couldn't go back to sleep afterwards. CRAZY night! One I really don't want to repeat!!
Kati- Glad you went the safe route and left. Have you figured out what the smell was yet? sorry you slept in a chair. That's awful.
Jana- Holy! What in the world!? How bizarre! Did he remember it at all? Crazy.
I slept terrible last night. But luckily I was able to sleep from 7-8 with no problems. I got some sleep all night but I woke up a ton and was awake from about 3-4 or so. Frustrating! And this morning I would have kept sleeping but some rude person was honking to get someone out of the apartment next door and then went and banged on the door of the person apartment and then yelled to try to get them outside. It wasn't angry or anything but like... hurried. and it was not very fun. I was mad but now I'm over it :)
Yesterday was Dh's and mine official 1 year of dating lol and yet we are married now. :) lol. We got in a big argument. We've been fighting alot. I think it's the stress of working on the rental and moving, and the change and the stress of this pregnancy and our ultrasound tomorrow. Hoping things get better soon.
No, he had no idea the next morning. Didn't even realize he'd done it and couldn't figure out why DS was in bed w/ us until I told him.
Happy 'anniversary' Maddie! Hope it all gets better for ya'll. Something I always try to remember when we're having a lot of arguments is this: "Marriage is like anything else, you can expect 50% good and 50% bad. Sometimes the % tend to tip more one way than the other. Whichever part you choose to dwell on will help determine how successful you are." This was said to us in pre-marital counseling by my pastor. Sooo true! Sometimes the 1st 5 yrs felt more like 30good/70bad or worse, but it truly does all even out. :)
That was not intended as advice, I promise. More as encouragement with something that helps me keep things in perspective when we seemingly can't keep from going at each other. Hope it didn't come off as offensive or know-it-all, bc we certainly don't have it made-in-the-shade in our household and every household is quite different. :D
Aaannnnndddd, as a "YAY" moment:
MY DOCTOR IS NOW PAID FOR THIS PREGNANCY!!!! WOOOHOOOO!!! :party:
Maybe that's no big deal to some but its a HUGE deal to me!! I'd been saving for a few months to pay it, only to have that savings wiped out by new tires that were absolutely necessay. No bueno, I tell ya. So YAY!! One less bill to worry about!!!! :)
That's great news! Having a bill paid off is a fantastic feeling!!! I can't wait to get there for many of my bills. Luckily I have medicaid though. Also- totally taken well! I appreciate it as advice and as encouragement :D
Nope have no clue what the smell is or where its coming from. We came home yesterday afternoon and wasnt here smelled like a fart (lol my kids agreed) and we were here for awhile then left and came home ate and I put the kids to bed while I was doing laundry and dishes. About 1030 I took the fan into the kids room and that smell was back. We stayed home last night though. I was soooo tired from not sleeping really the night before I figured wed stay home even though my mom said we could stay there again. I had to work this morning and the kids had to go to daycare so I didnt want to take them out again after 1030 plus all the kids were asleep and needed sleep. Tonight so far no smell so idk.
Maddie good luck at your appointment tomorrow and happy anniversary. Its hard staying with people I suggest counciling to talk things through its a third person who has no interest either way. My parents have been married 40 years this weekend and I swear they HATE each other. But whatever......
Jana thats so strange about your ds. Atleast he has no memory of it.
I am getting closer to being ok for my kids to go back to school. Trinity is going into 1st grade this year and the stupid bus because of us moving wont do pick up and drop off at my sitters since its out of their area. And I looked into the Y Care program omg. Who can afford $50-60 a week for just before and after school care for one kid. Im a single parent on one income. Theres no way I can do it. I have her way to school worked out and I can pick her up a couple days a week taking my lunch WAY late. Ug....this sucks. So I guess I get to call the school tomorrow and see if there is anything else they can help with. Its a new school for her to so yea....alot of the people that go to this school have alot of money and are from two parent homes where the mom stays at home or only works part time. Ug Im neither. I work 8am to 5pm 5 days a week. So were different lol. My son on the other hand is in a different new school(special ed 4 year old preschool) and will be bussed to and from school and has an iep so they have to. Which helps alot. His school has alot of people with money. Blah.
Little miss Sophie has been active tonight kicking and hitting the crap out of me. Its nice to have a baby thats fairly active. Might try to listen to her again tonight.
GAH!!! SO NERVOUS!!! T minus 3.5 hours :bigscream:
