I did not sleep well at all last night. I could not get comfortable to save my life. I've been fighting a cold for a couple of weeks and still have a minor cough and the runny noses! But it seemed last night that my arms just ached when I tried to lay on my sides. My belly wasn't comfy. Couldn't breathe or get comfortable at all. It was terrible.
It didn't help that I went to bed upset, DH got upset (unfairly, IMO!) about disciplining one of the kids. So, I was not in the best of moods anyway. Then I woke up even more sad. I just don't get his attitude sometimes. I thought we were working on being a team then he blows up. We were doing so good when it came to communication. Ah well, he blew that good streak. We apparently had a miscommunication about what punishment was supposed to be given to my 10 year old but instead of discussing it with me, he freaks. I don't know why he couldn't stop and talk about it. Like he says, he's not a girl! LOL He gets upset, sometimes wrongfully upset and does this. It just pissed me off!!
Okay, enough of my vent! Now for some good news. Please think good thoughts that DH is able to get us a van. He says he has one coming Sun or Mon and that we will have it by then. I'm letting him handle this car situation! We drive an old clunker with no a/c right now. We have horrid credit and just don't want to fork over a ton of money for a down payment, so he's found one for us. I hope it works out!!
I also think that I may ask our lanlord if we can stay another year. We've been behind in the last year or so because of DH's two surgeries - so now that we are caught up I hope they will say okay. I need DS to go ahead and finish out his elementary school years at the same one. If we move into a bigger house that would be great, but I know that it'll mean he'll have to change schools again. I don't want that. So if we stay here one more year then I can just save our money and go ahead and move all the kids around to fit somehow and then start decorating the baby's and girl's room. We have a three bedroom, but will have 5 kids. So, I'm thinking of moving my son into the extra living area and put my oldest DD into her own room, then the baby and the toddlers in the other bedroom. It'll be tight, it'll be tacky having DS in the living room area - but we have no choice really!! Sigh.
I'll need to talk to DH and finalize, but I want to get started moving stuff around so maybe I can paint in the next couple of weeks. Chayse will be here early, I just know it. I need to get busy!
Well, we did it! This weekend we moved DD into the living area and now she has her own space and LOVES it. She's so happy. And I'm happy that my little girls will have their own princess room to share!
We are going to pick out paint this weekend hopefully after we get the old room cleaned out and just do it up pretty. I've never been able to give my babies a nursery, so this is exciting for me.
Patrick and I also went to a garage sale this weekend and found a flower pot full of wooden clothespins. Why is this exciting? Well, because I can paint them and decorate and then hang up a string along the wall and place the clothespins on the string for the girls to hang up their artwork and such. How fun! I love being creative.
I did over do it with moving stuff around, cleaning this weekend. I should know better. I was having major back spasms yesterday. They finally went away. I could not get comfortable sitting up or laying down. It sucked! But then later on, I felt better. So then I started cleaning me and Daddy's room. Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment.
On the upside, things are coming together in my house. It's hard to keep everything tidy with working and so many children. That's alright, I know it'll all work out for us. We are on our way.
Chayse was kicking me very low at one point yesterday. I don't know what the deal was, but it hurt. I don't know if she was head butting me or if it was feetsies!
Back to the doctor on Thursday for a checkup and then the next week I'll go back every week. Hoping that Chayse keeps baking in my big belly!!

Oy, it's been a long week already and it's only Wednesday!
DH is still trying to get us our van we have been waiting for. I'm so worried it won't pan out. I am looking forward to having one and am scared. Oh well.
I have been really tired and feel miserable mostly. This heat is terrible in Texas. I do not have a/c in my car - hence needing the van - so driving home without a/c for 45 minutes each evening is starting to get on my nerves!
Yesterday I came home early and took a nap. I was so sleepy. I can't believe all the aches and pains I'm having in my third tri. I've felt so good in the last 7 months that this is surprising. Last night I got some cramps for hours on end. I figured out it was gas I had beef and broccoli for lunch yesterday. I cannot believe how terrible it was. I kept waking up in the middle of the night in pain, turns out I really just had to let it all go and I'd feel better! How awful!
Anyway, much better today, just tired now. We had a baby shower for a gentleman and his GF at work today. Turned out so well. They had twin girls and he didn't tell anyone they were pregnant until she delivered. It was so sweet to see the baby's pics (they are in NICU still) and see them open presents. It was fun!
Not sure what we are doing this evening. I need to get something to cook for dinner. Hope dad got his paycheck today and that it's a good one.
