I can't sleep!! Eek! My brain is just running on & on. Mykenah feels the need to pee on the floor even though she is trained. I discipline her and she does it later. That child... My dad called. Kristen told him that we are having a boy. I just feel myself annoyed with him and talk to him as little as possible. Not a great father growing up. Now, he's married to the biggest skanky ***** anorexic ***** of the world. Geez, I am nice, huh? I can't stand his wife. She's nutso too. Oh and I think L is a perv. I think all he does on my computer is chat to girls and go to porn sites. Ok, chatting isn't weird but I know he goes to tons of porn sites. Freak. Ick!! Marshall called and their work is really picking up. He is even working this Saturday. I feel bad for him but we really, really need the extra $. Our mortgage is late and our car payment is one month behind. Ok, enough babbling. I need to get to bed now....
At work and just don't want to be here today. It's gorgeous out. High of freaking 80!! I also don't feel well. Stuffed up and my asthma is bothering me. Can't get my breaths out. The doctor sais the baby looks a little on the large side so hopefully that means I will go early! That would be great. Just b/c July is sooo hot! I went on Ebay and looked around for some boy baby clothes. Way too cute! I bidded on a couple cheap little things. A couple of summer Old Navy rompers. I can't wait to get the girls' summer clothes as well. I'll go to Once Upon A Child. Who needs to buy brand new for summer when they will most likely be outside playing in the dirt. We also have this huge city-wide rummage where I get a ton of stuff for summer and fall. That's in May. Now I have 2 girls and 1 boy to shop for. Fun, fun!! I love to shop. Can't wait. Now, just need the $$!! The girls' pics are at 3 on Friday. Decided to do the WalMart thing. Cheaper!! Ok, better get going.... I wish it was the weekend!
Taking a small break. Ambitious me decided to go through all of the girls' clothes that are packed away. Wanted to sort out what I wanted as keepsakes, what baby boy could wear and what I could sell or give away. Wow! Lots of work. I needed something to drink and some music to keep me motivated so I stopped for a bit. I am losing my motivation though so better get back at it! The girls think this is a blast. Morghan and Mykenah both pulled out some things that they wanted to keep for their dolls. Cute!
I am being a mean mommy tonight!! Urg..... Just having a bad mommy night I guess. I am worn out and being a crabby *****. Big sigh.......
What a day... Maybe it was just a disappointment b/c yesterday was so fun. The morning was okay. Some tele-marketer or bill collector or somebody called me and asked for Kelli. I said this is and he hung up. Prick!! Was wondering what the hell that was. I was so busy though this morning that I totally forgot to eat breakfast. Duh! Marshall slept in. Was sleeping when we left. DC was happy to hear the results of my u/s. Work was okay. Slow... Tomorrow will be worse. Wednesdays are like that there. Thank God I have Friday off. Took it as vacation b/c dc is closed. That will be nice. I wish I had some $ to go shopping with. Came home and walked the dog over to get the girls. Dc is only a block away. They were surprised to see me and Aurora. Came home and put some sandals on. Their little feet were hot in their other shoes. Went to get a slush and to wash the car. Came home and played outside for about an hour. That was nice. Came inside and Kiki came over. She got on my nerves. Just b/c I was *****y though. Got supper ready. Fajitas. Marshall came home on his break to eat. Brought L with. Yeah, he lives here and you work with him, does he really need to come home with you when this is really the only time we get to talk during the day. Don't think so! He was having a bad day too. Could see I was too. Kim called. Crazy girl! Then I decided to go thru all those clothes!! Got it all done but put me in a worse mood. Couldn't figure out the f'ing pack n play that I pulled out. Made it a little worse. Girls were being naughty as hell. Bouncing off the walls. You would think that playing outside all day would wear them out. But nope... Gave them a bath and now they are laying down. Morghan snipped at me and I just came into the living room to cry. It has just been a bad day. Kenah saw me crying and came over to comfort me. Sweetie. I am supposed to make some scotcharoos and pb cookies but do I feel like it?? Nope. No energy left in this body or mind. Oh, my ob office called and I am amemic. Need to go look for some iron. Joy... That's all I have to say for tonight. My mood is just way too low. Need some sleep..
My mood was lifted a bit. Got a little burst of energy so the girls and I baked the PB cookies. Those are done. Yay! We all layed down in the living room and they both crashed. Called and talked to my mom. Now I am off to bed. Good night!
At work and bored again. I seem to get thru the first 2 hours okay and then I am all shot. I went on Ebay and bidded on some more stuff. More baby boy stuff and some lots for the girls. After going through all those clothes, I see what we need. Baby boy needs outfits. I have none. Ok, maybe 2 that were gender neutral from the girlie girls. I do have some onsies and t-shirts that should be okay. A lot have those yellow stains though. Have a few sleepers. So, need to get boy stuff!! As far as the girls' summer stuff goes, we are okay there. Not too bad but not great. I ended up packing away about half that they wore last year but could not this summer. Alot of 2T stuff. They will both be wearing 3T and 4T this summer. So, they each need some more summer outfits and sandals. Already bought their swimsuits off Ebay. I am also looking at a few pants outfits on Ebay. Doesn't hurt to start stocking up a bit early. I'll probably also get a bunch at the rummage next month. Basically, need to watch Ebay, get to Once Upon a Child, WalMart and Payless and we should be set. Ok, so now where is that extra $ to go with?? For myself, I just need some bigger summer shirts to be pregnant in. Maybe a pair of shorts or two. Want to go to that consignment shop. Marshall will need a few things. But that about it. I already bought the baby his swing and carseat. As far as big things goes, I want to get him the kick n play bouncer. That's about it. Just clothes, blankets, towels, diapers, wipes, socks, toiletries, etc. Small things that I need to start buying here and there. Wow! I rambled for awhile! Ok, better get going...
I am tired but thought I would journal quickly before heading to sleepy land. :sleepy2: Today was okay. My brain is barely functioning so let's see if I can remeber what we did. Left the house late and had to stop at the grocery store before work so I was a little late for work. Oops! That dragged out so slow today..... Picked up the girls from dc. They were outside swinging. Came home to get the mail. Then we ran out to a local consignment place. Kinda more like a little Goodwill. Got two bags of stuff for $4. The girls were so damn naughty in there!! Really, really bad today! So, we came home and they were sent to separate rooms to chill out. After about 15 minutes we had a snack and layed down. Mykenah fell asleep. Morghan got up and did a craft project. I started supper-chili. I folded a load of laundry. Marshall came home for supper in a good mood. That's always good to see. Kiki came over to use the puter and she gave the girls a bath while I went to run some errands. Got cat food and soda, picked up some iron pills and prescriptions. Went to see my mom quick at TB. Came home and Kiki went home. I cleaned up and made a quick batch of scotcharoos. I enjoy baking. Watched the Bachelor. Folded more clothes and checked my email and boards. Not much. We are all tired so going to head out now. Tomorrow is my last day of work this week. Yay! Good night.
I think the reason that I enjoy to bake is that my mom never ever did. Ok, maybe on a very rare occasion but that's about it. Like for school or church when it was required for one of us to bring something. She was just way too busy with work, her kids and my asshole dad. Gotta love my mom though! She's just not the domesticated type. Hates to sew and all that kind of stuff!! I don't even remember falling asleep last night. I was so stinkin tired. My dresser drawer broke today. Marsh better fix it before he goes in to work. I hope he does!! I guess I was wrong when I was naming the buig baby stuff I needed. Made a list this morning and forgot about some things. A dresser for his stuff, a new stroller (the old is borke) and a boppy. The rest is just smaller stuff then. DH and I are having the circumcision talk. That's interesting. We are definitely leaning towards it I think. Boy names-? Have no freaking clue!! DH gets the majority of the say is his name since I pretty much had most of the say with the girlie girls. Oops, almost 9:00. Better get going.
Oh, I keep getting those hang-up phone calls. It says out of area on my caller id. I just can't ignore those though b/c that's what also shows up like when m ob office, DH's family, someone out of town, etc. calls. So that sucks!! Got 2 last night. I just yelled into the phone. "Quit calling here"!! Very f'ing annoying!
I think I have Morghan's birthday party all figured out. It will be on the 10th b/c it's a Saturday. Her real birthday is on Mother's day this year. Neat! We will have it at either 4 or 5. I can't figure out which time yet. Gotta think on that. Having it at "g" in SF. I have a list of 10 kiddos, including the girls. Gotta go over that to make sure noone is forgotten. I think we'll get there, order food and while that is cooking, the kids can play on the rides. Then we'll eat pizza and they can go play some more. After that is presents and cake. How does that sound? Sounds fine to me. I just know that this place if going to be f'ing packed on a Saturday night though. I wish I could think of somewhere else. I just don't want to have it at home this year. For either of the girls. We can again next year. But I am going to be huge at Morghan's and have a newborn at Kenah's. Not so much fun to cook and super clean then. Her theme is Scooby. Got the invites and thank you's already. Will order the cake from the grocery store. That's all I need to provide except the $$!!! Mom said she will help us out b/c it is going to be spendy. Probably close to $150. Unsure on presents for her. I know she wants some more people and furniture for the dollhouse. That's easy. I was thinking of a couple posters for her room. Not sure what else. She likes so many things, like every commerical on tv!! But, thought I would put all my thoughts on that in writing. I hope I am not forgetting anything. Today is my Friday at work. Yay!!
The car loan people called today. Hi, can we have a check over the phone for $355. Um, no. Don't have that much in there. So, I set up payments. Hope we can make them. We also need like $250 more towards our mortgage. L better come thru with some cash for Marshall. Oh and the $15 in long distance on my phone bill. I need to call them to see if I can set up a block or something on it. Maybe to have a pin to put in first or something.
I need to get to sleep but thought I would come check preg.org and my ebay auctions before. Let's see, how was my day. Got up but it was so hard! I snoozed on the couch for like 10 minutes b/c I just couldn't make myself get ready. Finally did. The girls slept in a bit too. These late night are catching up to us. But it was always Marsh that got us all to bed at the right time. It was cold out today so needed winter coats. Blech! Work went fast today!! Had a little project to do! Yay! Came home and tried to figure out April's budget. I think I got it all figured out how to pay all the current bills but hth are we going to pay the back stuff?? No freaking clue and it's stressing me out muchly! (is that a word?) Made tacos for supper. yummy! I ate a ton. They are my fav. Marshall came home. He was in an okay mood. Busy night at work he said. Kiki and John both came over. My mom sent treats over with K b/c she was working. Mykenah fell asleep at 6:30 and slept until 8:30. Woke up to go potty and has been snoozing since. I gave them a bath and fed their tummies so she was ready to hit the sack! Morghan seems to not want to go to bed until I am ready. She has always been like that though. Laundry is caught up. Yay! Now Marsh can't ***** about having no clean boxers. Whatever. You know where the laundry room is, don't ya? Not much else here. Tomorrow I have off. yay! But gotta get up early and get Morgs to school at 8:30. Our pics are at 3 in SF. 1 hr drive. Not sure if we'll do anything else b/c I have to take the girls alone. I would love to go check out OUAC but the girls would terrorize that place!! Darrnit. I really want to get some clothes picked up for them and the baby. We'll see. Need to get a few nessecities at walmart. Cat food, Tums and stuff. My mom wants to go to the China Buffet tomorrow night. We'll probably do that. Marsh wants to then watch movies Fri night so we'll do that. He is going to have a poker party with friends on Saturday night. I told him we are going to church no matter what so it better not be a late night. I mean it! Ok, better get going
Thought I would journal quick while I have a quiet moment. DH came home in a good mood. He woke me up when he was coming to bed and we talked for like 1.5 hrs about things. Work and espeically this baby's name. He wanted to name him after his brother and mine but I really would rather not for a few reasons. His brother and him are getting along now but it has been rocky in the past and who knows what the future holds? They would have the exact same first and last name and that could provide for a lot of confusion. Plus, his bro has a criminal record. The stuff is no big deal but what could happen if the two are ever confused. So, I told him I would rather not. Maybe we could combine the two for a neat middle name. His bro is Michael, mine is John. Michael-John. Who knows. I really wanted to use DH's name for a middle name-Marshall. We have time yet but I would like to get this figured out. He also wants to keep the name a secret until he is born. Kind of a big announcement thing. Sure i said. I will have probs keeping my mouth closed I think though. Today the weather sucks ***. It is snowing!! I had to scrape my windows this morning. Ick!! Morghan is in school and Mykenah is playing dress up now. We have to drive an hour to get those pics taken. Hope the roads are okay. It's cold and the girls are wearing short sleeve dresses too. Eek! Well, better get going. Got stuff to do before leaving.
What a day. A good one though. I spent too much $ though. Oops! Picked Morghan up from preschool and got home. Got the girls hair fixed decently and got them in their dresses. Marsh left for work and we left too. Got some gas, some McDonald's for lunch on the road and took off. Stopped at MIL's to drop off some mail for her. Got to WalMart and got the things we needed. I got the girls a pair of sandals and they each wanted a new pack of undies. Morghan got Barbie and Mykenah got Dora. Also got the new baby some socks and onsies. Got some cat food, some hair stuff, etc. Went to get their pics taken. Mykenah did great but got bored after awhile. Morghan was bored the whole time and wouldn't really smile. Kinda got a smirk. But they turned out pretty cute. Just got the cheap package after the tried to see me the $65 package. Um, no thanks. Went to bring the girls to play with Ceryha at MIL's and I went to Once Upon a Child. Got a bunch of stuff. Spent $40 but got tons I think. They didn't have too many summer outfits out for the girls yet. Got them each 2 outfits and a pair of jammies. Got the new baby some creepers and some sleepers. Picked up the kiddos, got gas and headed home. Went to my mom's and we all went out to eat the China Buffet. yum! Both girls spilled their pop though. They were acting up. Got a movie and some popcorn and came home. Gave the girls a bath. Just waiting for Marsh to come home now. Hope it's not too late b/c I am getting tired!!
Marsh got home late. We just got done watching a movie and now I am wide awake at freaking 3am! Ack!! Better try to go to sleep b/c the girls will be up in like 5 hrs. Good night! Or actually good morning!
I am trying to get ahold of Kristen to come over and sit with the girls for a few minutes. I want to go check out a dresser for the baby. A lady a few blocks away is having a moving sale and selling one for $20. Way cheaper than having to buy it brand new. I swear kiki stays up way too damn late and then sleeps in all day. I just don't want to drag the girls out but I think I am going to have to. Oh well.
Marshall is working and I am darn bored. We don't have anything in the house to cook so we may go out or head to the store. I went to check out the dresser. I got it! It's not the prettiest thing but who cares. It only cost me $20 and has like 5 big drawers. What I may do is put that one in our room and swap our smaller one out for the baby. That may work better. I can go pick it up tomorrow. Need my brother to help me out with that. He has a truck-we don't. The girls are running around so gotta go round them up to get ready to head out. Until later..
So the girls spent most of the day Monday at my mom's when we were in SF for all our appointments. Kiki brought me over a couple pics. This is what happens when they spend the day at their nana's house....
Morghan with a nutty wig being a dork and Mykenah eating a corndog being a cornball!!
Why the heck am I awake?? It's almost 4:30! :O Today was a pretty good day. Lazy but good. Got woke up at 8:00 from the girls. Too early. Dozed until 9:00 and then got up. Was kinda productive. Vacummed the living room and bedrooms. Swept the kitchen but didn't mop it b/c I hate doing that!! Cleaned the bathroom. I'll have to do laundry tomorrow. Got a few loads. Marshall got up at around 11 to get cleaning downstairs for his poker party. Left for work at about 12:30 and the girls and I ate lunch. Lounged around. Morghan played on the computer while I read and Mykenah took a nap. Kiki came over to visit and brought me those pics. We went to see my mom at TB and got some supper around 6:30. Came home. DH got home around 8:45 and talked to me for a bit. People started coming over so he went downstairs and the girls & I watched Lilo and Stitch. Morghan liked it a lot but she had seen it once before. Mykenah can only watch for awhile and then gets bored. LOL We went and laid down when that was over and all fell asleep. I slept from like 10:30-1:30 and then woke up with h/b. Ick! Went downstairs to check on shellbell and visited for awhile. He did pretty good at poker. I just now came upstairs and need to go to bed! Not sure we are going to make it to church. It kinda makes me mad b/c we didn't go last week either. We really were going to try to make this a regular weekly thing. We have to drive an hour but still. Next week we better go or I am going to be upset. I just feel really good after going to church. It stinks thought that Marsh is starting to work Saturdays b/c that means he gets home late and would have to skimp on sleep. But we'll see I guess. I really want this baby to have a name soon!! There are a couple contenders (he just kicked me as I was typing this!) but of course have to keep them a secret. But that'll be neat to announce his name after his birth!! Ok, getting off the puter for now. Good night/morning!
Woah, what a day....actually where the heck did the day go?? It's already 11 and I am still awake. Don't want to go back to work tomorrow. Today I slept in until like 9 and then got up with the girls. Ate some cereal and then we went and vegged in the bedroom laying in my bed until about 12:00. I dozed on and off. I was so tired!!!! Got up and went to get us all some lunch. My brother came over and took me to pick up that dresser. It's kinda ugly but it'll work. I put it in our room and moved the small one into the other room for the baby. Put his clothes in there. Kristen and John both came over to visit. John turns 18 on Thurs!! :O Unbelieveable!! My lil bro! Marshall is going to take him to a strip club on Saturday. HAHAHAHAHA That should be funny. They want me to be the designated driver. Hmmm, yeah! Mykenah took a nap while we watched a movie. Maid in Manhatten. That was pretty good. Then I fell asleep! Eek! Didn't wake up until like 8:30. Went and did my grocery shopping. Mykenah is still up b/c she took a nap. Morgs fell asleep pretty early. The girls usually take a bath at night but we didn't get to it tonight. Will have to do that in the morning. Means we will have to get up earlier. I hate losing that hour of sleep! Sucks!! I get my haircut and highlites tomorrow. I can't wait!! Better get my buns to bed....
I am at work and being lazy again. The weather sucks *** so I think that is contributing to it. I also lost that hour of sleep, which is so precious to me being preggo! We woke up to a mountain on anow. I think there was like 7 inches on the ground and were expecting like 5 more. Nasty crap!! I want spring to be here!! L borrowed Marshall's car last night around 6. We'll just say Marsh is a little pissed off b/c by the time I left for work, L wasn't back yet. I think he is going to get an ***-chewing. I would freaking hope so. That's just plain disrespectful. Told dc that my hours would be staying the same. 10-2. No prob there. Found a couple of fun things in the paper that I was looking for. The local Jaycee's club sponsers them. The easter egg hunt is next Saturday, the 19th. We have went before and it was way fun! The girls will like that. Then they have a sandbox fill. A local company donates it and they fill up your sandbox. I ordered some. Ours seems to deplete in the sping and summer. That is on the 26th. Cheap too. Today I get my hair done. About damn time! It's been like 2.5 months. My hair really needs a cut like every 6 weeks or else is looks kinda icky. So, I get a cut and highlites! Yay!! I have to bring the girls though so praying they behave for the 1.5 hours it will take. Please, please, please. Sherri has a ton of toys at her shop though. I asked DH to scoop the snow and mop the kitchen floor before he goes to work. We'll see if he actually does. Got outbidded on a lot of my stuff on Ebay. Oh well. I am going to keep looking for the things I need. My mom asked me to make up a wish list for the baby. Small things mostly. She wants that on-hand in case anyone would ask what I needed. Which happens. I don't care at all though. We'll see what I can some up with. But, better get going. Until later...
I typed up a whole freaking post and lost it!! Dammit. Had a pretty good day. Not going to re-type it all though. Work went fast. Hating the snow!! My mom came over to visit. Hoping these iron pills give me a bit more energy soon. Good night!
Ok, will try to summarize my day yesterday since my other poor post was eaten. Bummer! We got out of the house okay. Girls woke Marsh up with kisses good-bye. Morghan purposely threw herself in all the snow as we were getting in the car!! We ended up with a foot I think. Today is warmer though so hopefully it melts soon. Work was good. Flew by! Woo-Hoo! Went to Sherri's for my hair. Got an inch cut off and my highlites. Wish I would've got a little more cut off but oh well. The highlites are cute but not as dramatic as before. I think though that's b/c I was also tanning for Nicki's wedding when I got those done so the tanning bed lightened it a little as well. I'll have to try to be out in the sun this summer so it lightens a bit more. My hair looks really cute when I put in up in twisites but I am not so good at doing it. My sister is! The girls were stinkers there. Well, kinda I guess. Sherri didn't mind though. It's a smaller shop and there are always kiddos there. Came home and cleaned. Mopped the damn kitchen floor finally since Marsh obviously forgot! At least he shoveled. Vacummed the floors and entry way. Picked up all the clutter. Marshall wasn't coming home for supper so I just ran out to get the girls and I something. Mom and John came over to visit. I won't have to cook Thursday b/c my mom is getting pizza for ereryone since it is John's b-day. Gave the girls a bath and we read a few books. Mykenah zonked out around 8:30, Morghan and I were in bed by 10. Marshall came in to bed around 1:00. We talked for a bit and then fell asleep. Nothing exciting!!
This pregnancy is so different than the girls'. I suppose that's what told my motherly instinct it was a little boy. I know I really want to meet him but this is also my last pregnancy. Feeling the movements, watching my belly grow, etc. is wonderful. I will never be able to feel this again and that is making me sad. I know that sometimes there are rough times but the joys really outweigh that. I hope that I don't regret my decision to be done any day. We just can't have any more children after this one but you know how that baby fever is. I just really want to be able to give my kiddos nice things. Not so much materialistic but also all the time and love that I have. I don't want to have to be stretched thin b/t all of them. I guess the preggo hormones are getting to me and I am kinda being sappy tonight. This little guy has been kicking me so hard lately. I love that!! He is still unnamed. I guess will be publicly unnamed until July. Got 1600 boys names to go thru with Marshall out of this book I have. I want to give him a name!!!!!! Soon!!!!
Today was okay. Little stressing though. Was running a bit late this morning. Oops. Got to work with like 1 minute to spare. I was kinda upset when I dropped the girls off at dc. The lady was letting the two oldest boys go outside and noone else. One of the other little girls was asking and she said no. I didn't think that was fair. I kinda rolled my eyes. Oh well, the girls are there only until July. Then they'll be home with us. I do really like the dc any other time though. Work was okay. Kinda slow but not bad. The girls decided to take off from me when we were getting home. I had to yell like twice. Urg! I'm sure the neighbors were thinking WTH? Screw them. They don't have two rambunctious girls aged 2 & 3. Came in and sat down on the couch. I was so tired and kinda wanted to doze. Didn't happen. Well, maybe like 2 minutes. The girls decided to tear into everything and spilled things all over!!! Made supper and ran some out to Marsh. He was in a good mood. Came home and the girls and I ate. Chix and stuffing dinner. (Oh, on a Baby Story today the family was eating this meal that looked awesome. Chicken mushroom something. yum! Wonder if I could get that recipe somewhere??) Just gave them a bath and now we are eating popsicles. Have been craving them! Yummy!!! Already folded my laundry so I can just take it easy. Better get going. Until later....
