Almost Finished!

Tommy and I went to the new house today and got just about everything done. Well, Tommy did the work I just helped when I was needed. He hung all the blinds, the towel racks in the bathrooms, fixed the phone and the fan. I think the only thing that needs to be done now is to clean the floors and we are good to move in! How exciting! I cannot wait! My plans are to build the dog houses on Sunday, clean here on Monday and start packing and moving on Wednesday. Tuesday is booked with the doctors appointment and other errands.
Dillon graduates tomorrow! :) He is so excited! Then his party is on Saturday! I am excited about that! I am hoping to be able to give him Mighty Mouse for a graduation gift! He really likes Mighty Mouse and Mighty Mouse really likes him. :) Well, its fixing to storm here so I'm gonna get off before I fry my computer! Night!


Still feeling like crap. And it doesn't help that I could not sleep last night. It did not matter if I lay on my side, my stomach or my back, it wasn't happening. Now we are being summoned to the new house to do some work. I can feel a bad day if I don't get some kind of nap in. But its ok because next week {hopefully} we'll have a bigger bed and more room for me to toss and turn without disturbing Tommy. :) I know he couldn't have enjoyed last night much either. I basically froze him to death because I was so hot. I feel bad. Poor guy. Lol. Wish me luck today! 

P.S. Nutty Bars are good breakfast!!!

Ten Weeks Today :)

Today I am ten weeks! Baby Bean is now the size of a prune! Here is whats going on with Baby Bean this week:

With bones and cartilage starting to form and vital organs beginning to function, baby is making major progress. Body length will almost double in the next three weeks, and arm joints are now working. (Soon, legs will start working too.)
Average size 1{point}2 in, {point}14 oz

So this week I am sick. And it sucks. I am congested and my throat is sore from drainage. Going today to pick up some sinus medicine to hopefully help. I really hope it does because I don't really want to have to go to the doctor. I have my next appt next Tuesday the 31st at 9:45. Plan on asking if I can make a trip to the beach this summer, when I am feeling better. 
I cannot get enough fruit this week. My favorite is the cherry/grape tomatoes and pineapple! Speaking of I am hungry so I'm gonna scoot to the fridge!

What We Want To Know Wednesday Q&A

To link up and participate click on the button. ^

{1} What must you do before you go to bed at night?

Use the bathroom. I have always made nighttime trips to the potty but being pregnant just makes it worse. I try to eliminate at least one or two trips by just going before bed.

{2} What is one thing you must snack on at the theater?

I don't really snack at the theater, but I do like to have a drink. Go figure that I usually always miss part of the movie because I'm in the potty, again. 

{3} Before going on vacation what must you do?

Triple check we have everything. Even then we usually forget something, but its usually small so going to the store isn't too bad. I also have to give the lovely people watching my babies (the dogs) a list of their life. How much food each one gets, making sure they put water down and outside, the vet's numbers, etc. 

{4} What is one thing you must do every day?

Annoy my husband. Lol. I don't really think there is anything I must do every day other than that. And only that because its so much fun. 

{5} Is there something you do that must be done in a particular order?

Everything has a specific order for me. I'm not sure why but its just that way. When I get dressed I put my clothes on from bottom to top, pants then shirt. I eat my veggies first, then the bread and potatoes, and then the meat. What can I say, I'm weird. 

What about you?

Prego Dreams

Are crazy! I don't remember much but I do remember waking up thinking "WTF?". And it never fails in the midst of my crazy prego dreams that I dream of Baby Bean (now deemed Green Bean by Tommy, lol) and Baby Bean is ALWAYS a girl. The funny thing is when I talk about Baby Bean I always say 'he'. Tommy will ask me how Baby Bean is and I'll reply "He is ________." Usually it has more to do with myself than the baby but I think it'll be that way for a little while longer.
Anyway back to the original subject. I remember dreaming about snakes and chasing a car through the mud (a semi-dried up pond), neither of which had anything to do with the other but thats what I remember from last night. I also remember breastfeeding Devan (if Baby Bean is a girl that will be her name). The other day I dreamed of Devan and she had a head full of curly black hair and was older than a newborn but still a baby.
Idk if that means Baby Bean is a girl or if that is just what I dream of (and I guess its funny bc I want a boy -though gender doesn't matter as long as its healthy and happy). All these dreams of girls have me juming up and down in anticipation for the time of the ultrasound that tells you the gender to come. Tommy doesn't know that I have been dreaming of girls for the past little while. He is pretty much convinced that because we want a boy it will be a girl instead. Lol. Only God knows what Baby Bean is now. But we will find out in due time. :) This makes me glad that we decided to find out the gender, at first we were gonna keep it a surprise! I cannot imagine not knowing after all these crazy dreams!

On a different note. Please pray, cross your fingers or whatever it is that you do that today is a better day at work. Fully intend on using any and all leverage their mom gave me in getting them to behave. :) She told them that I could take them to Game Time (idk I'll let you know when I find out) Friday for two hours if they behave. She told me to throw that in their face if they decided to act up agian. And trust me I will. If it makes the week go by a little smoother I'll do just about anything.
Have a happy Tuseday!

Totally Right

About yesterday and those kids.
He has urinated in inappropriate places, threatened to kill himself, spit on me (and his sister), thrown things at me, tried to kick me,  locked me out of the house, told me I'm fired and screams when he doesn't get his way. I'm not talking the normal fit a normal seven year old would throw, I am talking a blood curling scream that would make the neighbors suspect someone was really trying to kill this kid if it didn't happen all the time. 
 I have been told that I can't tell him what to do, I can't take away his toys if he is misbehaving and that I am supposed to punish his sister because he got in trouble. Its my fault that he got in trouble (or his sisters, never his own) and I annoy him. I have been told to shut up and been called stupid and so many other things all by the same seven year old kid that wants me to 'give' him a dollar for good behavior every day and take him out for a special treat on days like this Friday so he wont be bored. 
There are so many things I'd love to say to this kid but I know that I can't without losing my job. Though I don't really care at this point but I have promised myself I will continue to work until Tommy gets on a steady job. That way it'll feel like a victory to me. If I don't end up in the loony bin first. o_O 
Lets put it this way, he was so bad yesterday (and all last week) his mom told me to give him some medicine today after school to see if it will help. No, I'm not drugging the kid he has a prescription for his ADHD. Its kinda funny because they are the type of parents who really don't wanna drug up their kids but here she is telling me to give it to him. I just hope it helps. I am praying it helps. 
Onto another subject. I feel horrible. My wonderful dad has decided to cut the AC off at night (not down but completely off). If you live in GA then you understand that it gets pretty hot, even at night, in the summer. Well, now my sinuses are draining and I have a sore throat. I have NO clue what I can do for it since I'm pregnant and all my usual remedies are taken out of the picture. He is the only person in the house not affected but only because he keeps a fan blowing full blast on him at all times. That fan goes wherever he does and its annoying because he doesn't see how miserable everyone else is, he is fine so we should be too. 
I am going to go back to sleep for a little bit. It was too early for me to get up this morning but the dogs wanted out and Tommy was leaving for work so I got up. And now I'm going back down. LOL.

Monday . . .

I hate Monday. I think I have just come to realize that (or at least the depth of my hate). 
I do not want to go back to work. But who would want to go to work where a seven year old kid can call you stupid, yell at you and basically get away with whatever he wants? Definitely not me. However, in a few hours that is exactly where I will be. I will pick him and his sister up from school and have to deal with their mess all day. What really sucks is this is the last week of school and I can almost guarantee they will be ten times worse than normal. And its only a four day week so on Friday I will have them ALL DAY LONG! Which means that I need to be getting some kind of activity ready for them, like a trip to the park, but I think I will tell them that what we do on Friday depends on their attitudes the rest of the week. That almost never works but I think its worth the shot. I guess the good thing about it is as long as Tommy keeps working and I pay off my car, I can quit! :) That makes me happier than you'll ever know. 
Waiting on my lovely husband to get all his clothes together so I can do this week's laundry. Not a fun task either. I hate laundry. It is the most pain in the butt task in the house, simply because the cycle never ends!
I am getting hungry but I'm not sure what I want. My throat is starting to hurt so this will make for an interesting time as well. 
I cannot wait for next week! I will have the entire week off work and the only other thing on my schedule is my doctor's appointment Tuesday. Therefore I will spend half the time cleaning up this house and getting our stuff ready to move into the other house. :) Super excited! Hopefully I can get most, if not all of it, done Monday and Tuesday which will leave the rest of the week for us to get all of our stuff in the other house and set up. The only thing we are missing is a mattress and box-spring set for the lovely queen size bed that is in storage. :( Just in case you weren't in the loop, Tommy and I (and Baby Bean) have been sleeping on a twin size bed. NOT FUN! And NOT comfortable! Don't get me wrong, sometimes I like being that close to my husband and sometimes its gets so darn hot I don't. Regardless, being prego and having a twin bed to share between the three of us is not an option, at least once I start showing (and continue to grow). 
I am also looking forward to my doctor's appointment. I would just like to be reassured that everything is normal and I want to ask if I can make a trip to the beach this summer. :) I want to go to the beach so bad I almost can't stand myself. Really I think any body of water will make me happy at this point, be it pool, pond, lake, stream or river. 
Pretty sure you could care less about my ramblings so I'll leave you be. For now. Hehehe.

The Weekend

Went pretty well. Saw the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie which was ok. Not my favorite but it was pretty good. Had tons of fun with our friends KC and Chis. We also got some stuff for Dillon's graduation party. Exciting! 
I am super tired right now so if this ends up being really short please forgive me. 
KC also gave me several things for the baby (not to mention the AWESOME bday gift she got me). She got me a mommy pampering kit from Earth Mama Angel Baby (love it!) for my birthday and she gave me some gender neutral clothes (mostly onesies with long sleeves which is awesome since I'm due in December) and a boppy (the thing to help support you and baby while feeding). She was super sweet and told me that she has more stuff for me once she finds it all. :) What a wonderful friend! She has got me all excited! 
Sorry but anything else I was going to say has escaped me at this moment so I'll make sure to get up in the morning and try once more. Lol. NIGHT!
