And I think we found a home for little mister Oscar, the puppy. I had forgotten that a friend of mine recently had her little chihuahua stolen. When she heard about this one she was really excited. She has a 3 y.o. granddaughter that lives with her too that will really enjoy him. And we can still go visit him since they live near. Yay!!! This worked out perfectly!!!
I'm so glad I stuck with my gut and didn't cart him off to a shelter!
Kati- oh man... that's crazy... that does make it seem more real huh! so much sooner... crazy! exciting!
Jana- that's great news Jana! that's so great! I'm glad you found a good little home for oscar!
SOOOO we found out that we can probably start moving out stuff next weekend. So not this one coming up but the following. That's good... and then DH will start on the 16th after our vaca across the state to see my sister's family 13-15. His last day at his current job will be the 12th. He's turning in the notice today but warned his boss yesterday. I think I'm kinda excited but for some reason very nervous as well.
Yesterday my mom went and helped me clean my old apartment finally (we have until Saturday to be out). We knocked out soooo much! I was so grateful to have her help.. she's the only who has helped me so far. :/ I think we are going again today to try to finish it up. Woo. Idk if we will finish, but I'm certainly going to try to get it done today because my mom works Fri and Sat. :/ I also get DS Friday at 3:50 (after Kindergarten) for the week since it'll be my week.
DH is going on a backpacking trip Fri-Tues I'm very sad because I'll miss him so much.
Jana Thats great that you found Oscar a good home close by and by someone that you know will take good care of him.
Maddie it does make it seem more real. Its gone by sooo fast. Good luck with moving and getting the old place and this place cleaned. Where is your DH going backpacking?
I told the kids today that there is 99 days until I am due and the baby will be here before that they are soooo excited. I got a storage thing yesterday off one of my facebook groups now I need to either switch rooms or get the kids toys out of my room so I can get it in place and be able to start using it for things. I need to go through what I have now for the baby and see what I still need besides the obvious things I know I need. Its so close yet sooo far away still.
So my birthday is September 7 so I still have over a week till my birthday. BUT my brother text me a bit ago asking if Im busy. LOL Im at work. So I ask him whats up? Trying to figure out what he wants me to do for him. He asks if he can stop by in a few minutes he has something for me. I tell him sure and go outside. He shows up with a FULL rubarb pie from Maid-Rite where he works. (They are my favorite because they taste exactly how my grandma used to make them) I was sooo excited. Might scre up my numbers for awhile but Im happy he got it for me. Its the little things that make pregnant women happy.
Got some more clothes and stuff for the baby tonight so I went through everythng and sorted out what I have for preemie to 0-3 and the burp rags and bib and socks lol I got them all put away onto this storage thing I bought a few days ago Made a list of what I have and now making a list of things I still need.
Jana - Great story about the pup. What a good lesson for your family to learn, too, about homelessness and working to help someone out.
Kati - Happy birthday early!! Do you have plans?
Roxi - Congrats!
Maddie - You are a busy woman. How do you get up with everything!
Had my MW apt today. She thinks the "rib pain" I've been having isn't my ribs at all, it's my gal bladder. I have to track my meals and pain for the next few weeks and she may schedule an ultrasound on my next apt. How crazy is that? I totally expected to be told it's pressure inside my stomach from not enough room, and do my best to get comfortable.
We are leaving tomorrow AM for a family reunion. I am glad to be going, because my parents are so excited. But I'm not really excited at all. This side of the family is pretty disorganized, and nothing has been planned. Well, meals have finally been planned in the last two or three days. So at least we will eat! But, I"ll only be there for two days, so I can probably hang out by the pool and relax for two days, if nothing else. And I"m hoping I get an actual bed this time, instead of being stuck on the pull out couch. Call me a princess, but I'm pregnant, people! I want to be able to sleep well! lol We'll see how it goes.
Anybody else have plans for the Labor Day holiday?
