Oh, I am crabby tonight. Was a good day though. L just being here and using up resources and taking advantage of what we have is really weighing on me and pissing me off. He just helps himself to things, doesn't ask. Took off with DH's car and is still gone. I hope he leaves SOON!!! Urg!! Anyway... Woke up early this morning as Mykenah was up with the birds. 6:30-way too freaking early!! Snoozed a bit longer and then we all got up about 7:15. Got ready for church and hit the road. Marshall's mom, Ceryha and Betsy met us there. I actually got to enhoy church b/c Ceryha and Betsy took the girls down to the nursery. That was so nice of them. And the girls had fun!! B & C won't often be at church though so I hope the girls do okay with the nursery attendant. She seems really nice. She's young-maybe 20 or so?? We left there and went to Marshall's mom's house to visit a bit. We stayed there for about an hour and then headed out. Stopped at Burger King and ate. Yummy. The girls got a .99 Simpson watch! Loved them!! Cheesy but totally cool to a 3 year old and a 2 year old!! We left town after that and headed home. Got home and DH tried to nap. I had picked up the house before we left so I wanted to just relax. Didn't happen for either of us. Seems a pipe like split in the laundry room and was going everywhere!! Urg! We can't afford to fix it now so ew just shut it off. At least it's only the water pipe for the outside water. We only use that in the spring and summer. Washing cars, filling the pools, etc. No huge deal at the moment. But still will need to fix it. Morghan went with Kiki for a bike ride. Mykenah played dress up. She hung real close to me all day though. Really becoming a mommy's girl. Morghan is too but she's also becoming really independent. Doesn't want help, etc. A mini-teenager!! :laughing7: I was planning on making spaghetti but that didn't happen. Marsh wanted to grill so we did that instead. Ribs-yummy!! Hung outside for awhile because it was gorgeous! 65 I think! Awesome! But it's supposed to coll down this week. Bummer. Haven't done much tonight. Folded a load of laundry from Friday! I have two basket fulls to get downstairs, sort and wash. I don't do laundry on the weekends so it builds up. I just do it throughout the week and that seems to work good. I just hate Monday mornings though when I have to go thru all that!! The girls are laying down. Marshall is watching tv. I'm going to clean up a bit and then go cuddle with them. I'm tired!! Until tomorrow…
Planning mode here. I love to plan. I'm a Virgo and totally have the traits. This spring & summer are going to be busy!! So, thought I would get it all down in writing.
April-circus in SF
May-Our anniversary, Morghan's birthday, mother's day and city-wide rummage day
July-new baby, Mykenah's birthday
Wow! Lots of stuff to do. Morghan will have swimming and gymnastics this summer. I am going to take a parents and toddler swimming class with Mykenah.
Good day!! Let's see... I heard DH getting sick this morning. Poor guy. He has a lot of ulcer problems and stuff so he pukes a lot. Icky. So he went back to bed and stayed home today. I got up a little later than usual. Got on the shower and was productive today. Folded some laundry, etc. The girls and I got out the door okay. The kiddos were playing outside at dc when we got there so the girls were happy to do that! Work was good. Went by fast! Made a few phone calls that I needed to make. Found out that I do not have to drink any water before my u/s. Yay!! I hated that full bladder feeling!! Picked up the girls and they all were playing outside again. The girls had fun. It was nice out too. High of 60 I think. Got home and L had left for his first day on his new job. Thank the LORD!!!! Now, he can contibute something and maybe I'll be less of a *****. Took Morghan for a checkup on her ear. Her ear infection is gone. Yay!! Excellent!! She got a balloon and then accidentally let it go. We talked about how God took it up to heaven for Grandma Nana, my grandma who died. It was sweet. :love7: Made chicken fajitas for supper. Yum!! Got a load of laundry done! Also made scotcharoos. Woo-Hoo! Productive!! Gave the girls a bath. That's about it. Not much else. Miss USA is on. We were kinda watching that. That kind of stuff doesn't really interest me. Not the pageant kind of girl I guess. That's about it. Oh, DH made the appt for his vasectomy consulation on the 31st. We'll be in SF anyway for my appts so it worked out perfect. It makes me a little nervous but this is really what we both want to do. We'll see how that goes. I would like him to wait until the baby is born. Don't know why I guess. But that's about it. Until tomorrow....
Urg!! I could just bawl. Just got a phone call from Marshall from work. Don't want to do into details, will later. I just need to get all these damn thoughts in my head sorted out for now.
Copying in my post that I posted on my boards- I knew this day was coming. I just must've been in denial with how soon it would be here. DH is going back to the night shift. It's a second shift, 1:30-11:00 or so. Let me start out with history. He has worked there for almost 8 years now. 6 1/2 of those were on the night shift and that last 1 1/2 year he was on the day shift. He moved to days just because it was better for our family. He wanted to be there in the evenings with our girls, etc. Now, he can't anymore. His position was cut on the day shift and effective tomorrow he goes back to nights. I am just at a loss for words I think. I am no longer going to be seeing my DH much anymore! I'll go to to work in the morning and he'll go in the afternoon. He will get home after I am already in bed. The job market here is crap so he doesn't really have the option of finding anything else. He is pretty much stuck there. With so many losing their jobs, we feel lucky that he is still employed. Ok, so I am basically trying to stress the positives and minimize the negatives as much as possible. Help me with that please!! The hardest thing for me to do is that I am going to have to take my girls out of daycare. I am not going to pay for a minimum of 25 hours each week if the girls are only there a very short amount. I am checking with my boss on adjusting my working hours to 9-1 and that would totally eliminate the need for daycare. Which is a good thing, right? I am sad though because my girls are extremely attached to their dc providers. They have been there for 3 years. Plus it is a big change for a kiddo, I am hoping that they adjust okay. I am scared to tell the dc too. I was actually supposed to put down my deposit for the new baby next week. The girls will be getting the socialization they need from preschool, which will start in Sept. I don't worry about that so much. I am just worried about pulling them out of an environment they both really like. But home is usually best, right? DH would be home with them each morning until I got home at 1 if all works out right. I am also thinking of the bonding that DH and the kids can do. And then the mommy time I will have in the evening. We will also sve $ on daycare expenses, which we really need at this point. We have tons of debt and are looking at needing a minivan for the 3 munchkins. Please encourage me here. I need all the ever-wise words that I can get. Sorry about the rambling. I just found out about this a few hours ago. DH isn't home yet to talk about it with me. Love you guys!!-
Ok, so the time has come. I am pretty bummed. DH & I had a nice long talk so I am hoping that it will all work out. As fasr as the rest of the day goes, it was pretty good. DH went in a little late. Still not feeling great. Work was okay. Last slack day though!! Picked up the girls from dc and Morghan was raving about Austin. Some boy she apparently has a crush on! OMG! I about died!! She a mini-teenager! Said she would like to kiss him!! Geez!!! Got home and tried to rest a bit. I was so tired this afternoon. I think I dozed off for a bit. The girls were being terrors. Seriously, mischievious. Apples out of the fridge, blankets pulled off the beds, etc. I yelled and I shouldn't have. I apologized. It was just a tiring afternoon and then I got that call from DH. Got supper going. Had spaghetti. Yum. The girls gobbled that right up. John came over and visited. (my little brother) The girls love him!! Climb all over him. He is going to turn 18 next month. I can't believe how the time flies. I used to take care of him alot. A lot!! DH and I have been cuddling all night so I am behind on the housework. Need to load the dishwasher and stuff. But it's our last week evening together. I want to enjoy it! Not much else here. Um, better get going to pick up some. Until tomorrow..
Thought I would journal quickly before the Bachelor comes on. I love reality tv. Sad I know!! Today was alright. I am in an overall sad mood though. Life just overwhelms me at times. Let's see, DH got to sleep in today. I got up and got ready. The girls were up early too. With the birds! I think that it being light earlier has something to do with it. It was a good morning. Got to spend a little time with Marshall before leaving for work. But when I left, that was a little hard for me to do knowing I wouldn't see hime for awhile. When Marsh and I are not fighting for whatever reason, we get along really good. I really value him as a friend besides being my husband. Work was okay. Slow.... It drug by.... Picked up the girlie girls and got a little sad when I knew that they wouldn't be staying in dc for much longer, where they really love it. That made me cry too. Came home and supper was already made in the crockpot. That's a good feeling. So I cleaned. Mopped all floors, scrubbed entry way, vacummed all the rooms, cleaned the bathroom. Only took me an hour too. I worked fast! The girls and I ran out to run a few errands. Went to the bank, the gas station, to get a paper and then we went to get a slush. A small little treat. Marshall came home to eat with us on his supper break. That was nice. Short but sweet. His first night is a busy one he said!! Gave the girls a bath. Somehow they snuck a whole damn bath towel into the tub!! Urg! Those turds. Got them out, lotioned up, ears cleaned out and hair combed. We all just watched some cartoons on Nick for awhile. Cleaned up their bedroom and I pulled a load of laundry out of the dryer. Need to fold that soon. Checked my regular boards. I have been thinking of Andie and Nate all day. Hope everything is okay for both of them! Also posted a diggy pic question on the computer how to board. Something that I can't figure out for the life of me. Duh Kelli. I e-mailed Shane and asked about switching my hours. He is such a great boss. Seriously a genuinely good person. Him and his wife both. I just really treasure that. He said that was fine. So that's good. Now I just have to give our 2 week notice to dc. I'll do that Friday I think. Maybe tomorrow. I hate doing things like this though. I'm bummed about taking the girls out. They love it there. *sigh* I know that I'll be sad for awhile on this one. Well, that's about it. Nothing else here. Will be back tomorrow. I dread going to sleep by myself tonight.
I am so damn tired. :sleepy2: Well, I usually go to bed arou 9:30 or so. I couldn't sleep last night with DH being gone so the last time I looked at the clock was 11 I think. Marshall came into the bedroom at around 12 and told me he was home. We talked for about 20 min and then he went to play some cards, watch some tv or whatever to unwind so he could get sleepy and go to bed. He came back in around 1 as I just drifted off to sleep so I woke up again. We talked forever!! Until like 4:30. It was so nice though. We talked about everything. Work, the kiddos, daycare, the new baby, church, our families, etc. Still haven't decided 100% on daycare. Urg!! I am so damn indecisive on things like this. We talked about how maybe it would be a good idea to leave the girls in until the new baby was born. To get some socialization with their friends, keep them with a routine for awhile until their new sibling gets here, keep them with the ladies they love, etc. I just don't know what to do. Maybe this would be a good alternate route until July. I think so. But who knows?!?!?!?! :sad7: Sometimes I drive myself nuts with all the thinking I do!!!!!! I only got about 4 hours of sleep so I am beat. I hope work goes by faster today than yesterday. Better be off now...
I need to make a new sig. I know mine's too big for siggy requirements. But want to wait until after our u/s on Monday. I talked to Cindy at dc. This is what we are going to do. The girls will stay in until July, when the new baby is born. After he or she comes home, that will be the girls' last day. If $ gets too tight in the meantime or someone else really needs that spot, they will be taken out earlier. Marshall will be going into work earlier to get some hours in until they are out of dc. We really need a minivan but it may be awhile before we can get one. Not just b/c of dc at all. We freaking owe like $14000 on a car that is valued around $5000. ****ing sad. The dealership screwed us. We were dumb, naive, young and they took advantage. Don't get me wrong. I love my car but the $355 payment each month is killing us. If we are paying like $355 why the hell am I not driving something brand-new? Urg! This one is going to bury us forever. We played with the idea of a voluntary repossession for awhile. (just taking it back and saying screw it) But so do not want to **** up our credit. I think we have like 3 year left to pay on it. It's a nice car but sure as hell not worth $14000. What happened was a *****. We had an awesome car. A Ford SHO. Sweet car! We bought an extended warranty just ot cover our butts. The payment was only $189 a month. Perfect. Ok, so something goes wrong with the transmission. No big deal I thought b/c that was covered under warranty. Brought it in and they said the warranty company requires an inspector to come out and check out claims over $1000. We got denied!! I was like, WTF??? Something about it wasn't the actual tranny that died, some sort of modulator switch that runs the tranny fried. Um, so what? How the hell would we have known that? What could we have done? Not a damn thing we were told. I was irrate. Couldn't afford like $2500 for the repair, labor, tow, etc. So, Dh has a friend (thought he was) in the finance dept of where we bought the car. Wondered what we could do. What he did was sell the car to someone (a dealer) that would be willing to take the car at a lowered cost to repair it and keep. We had to take the difference (loan amt and sell cost) as a hit. He then tacked that amount onto a different car loan. A car that over priced anyway. Because of our lack of credit, our car had to be over $10000. Something about valubility if it ever gets repoed. so, there ya go. We were taken for a ride and screwed. I love my car now. It has been awesome. But the loan is just outragoues. And since we owe way MORE than what it is worth, no one will refinance us. We are prety much stuck unless we give it up. I don't want to do that. Ok, how the hell did I get on this subject anyway?? Geez! Oh yeah, we need something bigger but it may take a long while. Extra $ has to go to pay off our credit card debt first. Then can go towards a car somehow. Ok, enough rambling. Better get going. Talk later...
I am a journal freak today. Wow, weird. I just have so many thoughts running through my head right now. I am so excited for this baby. With Morghan, I was excited but in a way that I had no idea of what was to come. She was our first and had no idea of how to parent or what a baby would bring to our lives. It was awesome, scary and fun all at the same time. With Mykenah, wow! I had no idea that having two would be so hard. Life was hard for awhile. I thought I was going to go nuts or kill Marshall or both. But just one day, something clicked and all fell into place. I sometimes feel Mykenah was cheated a bit. I couldn't focus on my pregnancy so much b/c I had a toddler to run after. My mom wasn't there for her birth b/c she was watching Morgie. There are just small things that I feel sad about sometimes. She seems to have to follow in her sissy's footsteps a lot. I try my best to treat them equal. That is hard sometimes when they are on different levels of things. But now that they are older, it's pretty easy. And it's good. They play awesome. Fight like crazy. But love each other like nothing else. It's amazing to watch somedays. I am told that they really stick up for each other at dc somedays. Awwww.... So, wondering if we'll have another girl or a boy this time. I know that in my heart, I am kinda longing for a boy. For a few reasons. This will be our last and I would love the experience of raising a son. I would love someone to carry the last name. I think it would be so cool to have a little brothe for Morghan and Mykenah. I am the oldest, have a younger sister and then a little brother. Maybe we'll follow the same pattern. I know that another girl would be neat too. 3 girls!! :O That sisterly bond is like nothing else. Maybe there would be some inital disappointment but nothing big. No regrets, etc. I think that it's normal as I have seen many other go thru it. I hope to find out at our u/s on Monday. I have terrible luck so it would be our luck that they baby will be shy. I hope not!! I need a whole bunch of open-leg non-shy baby vibes!! We'll have a busy day on Monday. Here's our schedule:
12-1 hospital tour
2:15 drink glucose crap
3:00 ob checkup
3:15 blood draw for glucose test
4:30 Marshall's v consult
But anyway, as each day passes, I am excited for this baby to be born. But, in a way want it to last awhile. This will be the last time my body has a child in it. This will be my last pregnancy. I will no longer feel kicks, hiccups, punches, etc. after he or she is born. That for me is really bittersweet..........
Wow, preg.org was down for awhile. Talk about going nuts here. I survived I guess!! Let's see, how was my day? Pretty good! Got out the door with the girls okay. It was cold though so back to those f'ing winter coats. Ick! Let dc know that my schedule would switch to 9-1 effective 4/14. That should work out okay. Then they'll be there until July when baby noodle arrives. Work was kinda slow. Went okay though. Not a lot to do. Picked up the girls and came home. Got supper stuff together. Made goulash. Kiki came over to visit a bit. The girls were all over her!! She left and I got the girls fed. Geez, they love goulash! Gobbled it right up. Even Mykenah who is on this hate meat kick. They both layed down on the couch with the Simpsons were on. I went into the kitchen to clean their mess up. I was in there 10 minutes tops and came back in to two beautiful sleeping beauties!! :sleepy2: They hadn't napped so just conked out. Marshall came home to eat. It was nice to talk to him. We are doing so great lately. He is really liking nights. Having a line again, having his pride back. Even on evenings, I am happy for him. He makes me proud. Cleaned up and mom came over. The girls were still sleeping! I ran out to get myself something to eat since I don't care for goulash. I am way too damn picky. Went to Subway. Had a coupon to buy one, get one. Well, the plan was to eat one tonight and bring one for lunch tomorrow. Well, preggo Miss Piggy myself, ate both!! Geez Kelli!! :O :snorting: Well, the baby was well fed tonight!! I have this huge load of laundry I should have folded but didn't. Too tired and lazy. Went on the net and searched for more baby names. I am in such a bind. Nothing I really love yet. Plus, Marshall and I don't agree on a lot!! He says he wants to wait until after the u/s to discuss it. Whatever dork!! :laughing7: Well, that's on Monday! Yay!! Only 4 days away now!! Yipee!! I hope we can see the parts clearly!! I better be off to get my angels in bed. It's getting late for them and Morgie has preschool tomorrow. Talk later...
I am at work and it's sooooo slow!!! This day is dragging so slowly!!! I have been having this killer heartburn lately. Really, really bad. How annoying. Painful too. Not sure what the plans are for tonight or this weekend. It's cold so I am pissed. I am supposed to take the girls to get their pics done at Sears tomorrow. I really can't swing the $30 to buy a new Smile Savers card (ours expired in Jan) so I think I may go to WalMart instead this time. It's only like $4.99 for the package. Then next time in May for Morgie's 4 year pics, I can buy the card again when we are a little more caught up. I think I'll do that instead this time. Hope they have some fun backgrounds. The girls' dresses are so cute!! I didn;t buy the traditional Easter dresses this year. The ones I found were too damn lacy and frilly. Just way over the top. Instead, I bought these colorful sporty dresses. Too cute!! I hope Kenah cooperates. Last time, it took 3 trips to get her 2 year photos done. Pure hell!! For Christmas pics, that sucked *** too. I had to pull off her shoes and tickle her feet so she would still and laugh. The turkey. And then Morghan was doing these big fat cheesy smiles. Dork! This will be the girls' first pic with Morghan's missing toofers. Cute!! I am rambling here but just so bored. I have to ask my mom if she is going to do Easter baskets again this year. She probably will. That's like her thing. Even Marshall and I still get one from her. I want to do an Easter egg hunt with the girls this year. We have the perfect backyard for it. But, who knows what his family will be doing. They wait until the last minute to schedule things so that makes it hard to schedule with my side. There are like 9 siblings on that side and none can ever agree and all be there together. Frustrating. I think we'll probably go to church that day too. Ok, enough talking. Better get back to work. Oh wait, what work? Nothing to do today!! I get to leave in like 15 minutes though. Yay!! Will journal later tonight!
I am so damn tired. Body and mind. Had a hell of a night. Let's see. Work finally got done. What a slow day. Came home and Kiki had picked up the girls b/c she wanted to use my computer. Something is wrong with hers again. Bummer. Mykenah was hyper, Morghan was crabby. I ran out to get us a treat to hopefully cheer Morgs up and calm Kenner down. Got them an ice cream cone. I got a slush & an ice cream cone. What can I say? I'm pregnant!!! Didn't do much else. Lounged around.... Mykenah fell asleep for her nap. Morghan colored her best friend Ruby a picture to mail her. She lives like 2 blocks away! :laughing7: I was cleaning up the kitchen pantry a bit. Came across some papers that I need to get into a safety deposit box. I think it only costs like $30 a year. Not bad b/c we have a lot of stuff that need to be stored away. Mortgage papers, loan papers, car titles, birth certificates, etc. I need to go look into that. I also came across my old journal. It's about 3.5 years old. Morghan was just a baby!! I had to write in it for my Comp class. I read thru aoll of it and all these memories and feelings came flooding back. Really neat. It was weird how easy my life was then. We didn't have much. A cheapie car, no credit cards, lived in a small apartment, etc. It was an easy life. I miss that. I hate being broke and scrimping. I hate being in debt and having bad credit. I would love to give it all up sometimes and walk the hell away. But can't of course, b/c that would affect our lives forever. Car loans, college loans, whatever we may need. Freaking sad! How the hell did we get into this damn predicament?!?! I used to be so against credit cards. We had none until like 1.5 years ago. Iused to always rip up the apps. But then Christmas time rolled around and we weren't going to be able to swing Christmas. So, I sucked it up and figured that I would pay it off quick and then close it. But nope. It helped out a lot in tight situations and now we are buried. We have 3 cards and all are maxed out. I try to mail more than the minimum each month but that rarely happens. Sometimes it gets there late, so then I get a late fee. It never ever ends!! Urg!! Ok, no more pity party for me. Kinda got off subject here, huh?? Morghan got a book-it slip for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut, which she wanted for supper. So, we ran out to run some errands. Went to the $ store. Got some stuff we needed. Went to Pamida to get laundry soap and fabric softener. The girls were naughty as hell in there. Had to wait for a clerk to get some fabric softener from the back and the girls jetted. Took off from me. Not just around to the nest aisle but down the whole length on the store. Not fun for me chasing them. Turds! Went to visit my mom and they girls got a treat. Ordered pizza and went to pick it up. Came home and scarfed that down. Yum. Bathed the kiddos and got them all ready for bed. Now, they are laying down watching a video. I hope they get sleepy soon b/c I am. Geez, they are so active and I am so pregnant. That combination makes for one very worn out momma. This baby feels really low. I was having some cramping at Pamida so I had to squat down in the aisle while waiting for that clerk. My back hurts and it's just getting a little rough. This pregnancy is definitely a little harder. I totally enjoy feeling this little noodle move and groove. That's the best feeling. This baby seems a little more laid back. More rolls and moves than kicks and punches. Hopefully that's a good sign! U/s is on Monday! Yay! 3 days away!! Woo-Hoo!! Ok, I am going to go snuggle with the girls and lay down. I'm pooped. I wonder what Marshall is going to do tonight. Friday he usually goes out. I think he has inventory tonight though so he probably won't be done until late. Talk tomorrow...
Ugh. I can't sleep. Well, I could but now cannot. We all fell asleep around 11:00. I woke up around 1:30 with terrible h/b and an upset stomach. Yuck. Took some Tums and now I can't sleep. I am physically tired but just can't make my brain turn off for the night. Marshall just got home. Poor guy. Long night. 1:30 pm-2:15 am. Yikes! Him and L are sitting downstairs listening to some music and drinking a few beers. If I wasn't preggo, I could go for some wine or a mixed drink. Oh well. Actually, lemonade sounds damn good right now. A tad bit sour, with a real lemon in the glass. But don't have any here. Bummer. Well, I checked the boards. Everyone must be snoozing! Off to try to get some sleep. Or I may scour Ebay for a bit!! Better not!!
Oh, what a day. A really lazy day. I didn't do much of anything at all! Really nothing. Ok, DH came home last night and I was awake on the puter cause this f'ing h/b hit me hard. Ick. Tums are barely helping. I went downstairs to check on him. That was around 3:00 I think. Wrong move!! I ended up staying up with him until like 6:30. Just chatting. Well, not really chat. We talked about everything. Life, death, our kiddos, this baby, families, everything.... It was nice. It's weird when I can see how much he loves me just in his eyes. He looks and that's all it takes. He tells me he loves me too but sometimes the looks tell me even more. Wow ok, got a little deep for a second. We were really on the bottom of our roller coaster for awhile. I think we are chugging upwards again. I hope so. Seems Marshall is really grown up. The **** he put up with at work, with his family, etc. I think did it. So anyway. Went and layed in with the girls and snuggled and dozed until 7:30 when Mykenah decided she needed to be awake. That of course woke Morghan up. Marshall was still up so he stayed up with them until 9 when he came in and went to bed. I then got up and got the girls some breakfast. I layed on the couch and they watched toons. I was beat. Eventually got my lazy buns up and played with the girls a bit. We read some books, played Barbies. Mykenah got tired around 11:00 so she went into our room and layed by Marsh. She was out in like 5 minutes! Morghan and I jumped in the tub. I needed to shave. I am bad about that sometimes. Plus, I have this big belly. Doesn't make shaving the easiest! Kiki came over to use the computer again. Mykenah woke up. Morghan wanted to go over and visit mom so her and Kiki took off. Mykenah and I went to the grocery store to get some lunch. I was craving brats. Weird! Came home and grilled some up. Marshall got up then. I then made the mistake of just laying down on the couch to watch tv. Oops! Big mistake. I fell asleep. Marshall was up but Mykenah still managed to trach the house! Urg!! Poor girl must've been bored outta her mind. I didn't wake up until 6! Picked up as much as I could handle doing without losing my mind. Wasn't much. Ran out and got us some movies. White Oleander. Just watched that. It was good!! Also got another one but can't remember the name. We are going to watch that in a bit. Morghan came home with my mom and Kiki. She took a nap over there, ate both lunch and supper!! That social girl! Thinks she needs to be gone all day at age 3! But then when she comes home, you can tell she's happy to be back. Mommy and daddy are the best sometimes!! Gave the girls a bath. Mykenah cuddled up to me and we rocked to sleep. Morghan is wound up! Watching tv with Marsh. Some cheesy movie and you can hear them both laughing so loud!! :laughing7: Makes me laugh in here. So, that's about it. I was tired but got a nap! Tomorrow will be church. Gotta plan my meals and go grocery shopping too. Nothing big. Be back tomorrow!
Some days I could just kill my husband. Especially when it comes to cleaning the house. I feel like breaking both of his legs! Urg!!! Off to be the maid around here again...
Thought I would journal now. Now is as good as time as any. Well, today was pretty good. Um, et's see here.... Around 5:30 Mykenah woke up. Woke both DH & I up. My back was sore as hell so I went and slept on the couch. Marshall, Morghan and Mykenah snoozed in our bedroom. Marsh came out around 6:30 and said that he didn't really feel like going to church. I did but also had some stuff to do around here so we passed this week. I slept until 8:30 and got up. The girls were playing in their room. Marsh had fallen back asleep. I ran to the post office to get my electric bill in the mail, got some gas and then got us some breakfast. I was in a real pissy mood. My house was filthy. Well not really but it seemed so. Mykenah spilled a whole glass of oj and laughed. Urg! So, I sent Marsh into our bedroom to get the hell outta my way. I sent the girls into their room to start cleaning that. I cleaned everthing top to bottom. Started with one room until the last was done. Now I look around and it's starting to get messy again. Marsh and the girls are just messy!! So, got that all done. Marshall and I watched the DVD that we rented last night. We went to bed without watching it b/c we were too tired. It was good. Abandon was the name. The ending was so unexpected. Marshall and the girls were wresting when that was over so I made my way to the grocery store. I always over spend there. But it's hard not to when you have to have some things. Came home and started supper. We made burgers, hot dogs and brats on the grill. Beans and chips with dip also. Yummy. Now I am stuffed to the gills! Mykenah fell asleep while I was cooking and just woke up in a crab *** mood. Morghan spilled some juice and when I asked her to clean it up she ran away! So, I just sent her buns to her room until she can come out and clean it up. She is such a drama queen sometimes. I need to start some laundry. Also need to load up the dishwasher and clean up supper stuff. We are planning on watching 8 Mile tonight! Woo-Hoo!!!! Eminem is hubba-hubba! Tomorrow is our big appt day so I will be gone most of the day. Can't wait!! I hope this little bean isn't shy and shows off his or her goods!! Open leg vibes!! ^^^^^ LOLOLOLOLOL Until tomorrow....
I am totally craving here! Just sent Marshall to get me a pancake and a large lemonade from a local restaurant. Weird, I know. But still yummy!!
Today was the big day!! It went great! Our hospital tour was awesome. Love all the new developments! We ate lunch at KFC, yummy! Had our u/s, which went perfect. OB checkup was good and I mamaged to drink all the glucose suagr crap down fine. Oh, I suppose you want to know the results of the u/s, huh?? We are having a baby......... BOY!!!!! :sbb: Woo-Hoo!! I am so thrilled and kinda in shock still I think. He definitely wasn't shy about showing his little parts. He looks really healthy. She was able to look at everything. Brain, heart, check for a cleft lip, etc. We even got a thumbsup for DH! So, that's my excellent news for the day!!! The girls both seem excited. Now, have to weed thru all my girl baby clothes and get some boy ones! Seems so different!! But we are all happy campers here!! Some pics to check out...
A tiny lil foot...
Part of his face....
His boy parts!!
And the thumbsup...
Woah, what a day. Long and tiring but oh so darn exciting!! I don't want to go back to work tomorrow. Bummer. Today was too much fun. I slept in an hour today. Got up and got into the shower. The damn thing that holds the shower head up broke so I had to hold it over my head to shower. What a PITA! Got the girls ready and fed them. Woke Marshall up. He woke up tired and grouchy. Turd! I left the house at 10 to bring the girls to dc, ran to pick up a paper and brought the girls' stuff to my mom's. Picked up Marshall and headed out. We got there a little early so we stopped and visited his mom for a bit. Kinda too long b/c we got to the hospital like 3 minutes late. Oops. The tour was neat! Loved everything about it. Security, the bistro cafe, the rooms, etc. Way cool!! Then we went and ate lunch at KFC. Filled way up!! After that, we went and looked at some minivans. Just shopped around a bit and wished! Then we went back to the clinic and pre-registered for DH's appt at 4:30 since he had never been there before. Went to my appt and got checked in there. Drank the glucose stuff. Not too terrible. And filled out paperwork for teh u/s. Had that and yay!! Had my checkup. Eek on the weight gain! I kinda knew though b/c I am feeling it. Then, we went back to his mom's to kill some time. Marsh had already called everyone he knew to tell the the good boy news!! Went back for his vasectomy consultation. That went good. Made Marshall a little nervous though. His surgery is scheduled for June. Time to recover and be able to help when the new little baby comes. We stopped to get gas and grab some supper since the girls were eating at mom's. Dropped Marshall off at work and came home to clean out the car. Mom brought the girls home. They were so wound up!! Got them bathed and we cuddled and talked about having a brother a little bit. Not sure if they quite get it or care much now. I think they will be such great bis sissies!! Got online and posted my announcement. Checked my boards and I am now ready for bed. But, I need to clean up a bit and fold a huge *** load of laundry. Ick! Bette go do that now. We are still debating names. This will be quite interesting.....
