Some randomness…..

The surveyor’s were out yesterday and the land is ready for the basement to begin. I can’t believe that this week my house will be started, this is so crazy, I just can’t believe it’s finally happening!

Little A was running around the living room yesterday and tripped with her sippycup in her mouth, you can just imagine the mess of her face now. Her top lip is so swollen that she looks like the grinch (the one with Jim C&arey). The bruising is starting to come out on the outside now too, I’ll have to take a picture, because it’s unbelievable how it looks. She doesn’t look like the same person. Anyway, i’m sure it’ll be gone down in a few days, poor little girl 😦

43. Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints? I like solid colors in furniture. But I have the ugliest print on my soft right now, it was a cheap set and we were just married, so it did the trick at the time, for the next one I’m getting it will be all one color preferebly dark, so stains are harder to notice from the kids!

44. Is there a smoke detector in your home? Yes there are 2.

Anyone who wants to do this can.


I had my OB appointment on Wednesday. Gained another 2 lbs and baby is measuring right on track, head down ready to go! lol He told me as long as I feel fine, he’ll let me go on my own, so I’m definately having the baby in December. I had one due date of Dec. 1 so with my history of being overdue, my guess is Dec. 7th. With a 9 pounder. We shall see. Next appointment is in 2 weeks, then they are weekly.

After that appointment I took A to get her 18 mos needles, she got them and the flu shot all at once, she did great but at the last needle she screamed pretty loud, poor babes. Hubby and I also go the flu shot, ouch, I really didn’t want to but I’m covered as a healthcare worker and whatever so I got it. A did good afterwards also only got cranky once during the night and never did get a temp.

We have started packing to move out, this place is so bare! I found some of E’s old baby clothes and the outfit he came home in, I washed them all up for this baby 🙂 Anyway, must get some uniforms ironed, still working only about 10 shifts left till Maternity leave!

34 week pic

Little miss with her pigtails and making a mess of her clothes!

Me taken today, 34 down, 6 to go~

Finally our mortgage was finalized and the plans for the house are to start next week. This amazes me. I find it all too surreal that this is going to happen, now I can actually start thinking of colors for rooms, flooring and all that shit. I never really expected any of this to happen anytime soon, especially not next week~! I’m excited and nervous all at the same time.

So our mini-home we are in is sold, the people buying it are planning to move it the 2nd week of Nov. So we really have to get our assess in gear and start packing, of course I’m still working full-time like a nut, so it doesn’t leave me with a whole bunch of extra time, but I’ll be sure to get started next week.

The kids are really excited too about finally having their own rooms they can decorate as they please and no sharing with anyone!

When we finally move out of here we are going to move into my MIL’s basement because it is going to be all done over from the flood that happened a couple of months ago. We live in the country and have well water and apparently from the flooding something happened to her well so the people who deal that that type of stuff had to come out to assess the problem, it was fixed the other day and water was hooked back up. Didn’t the basement get flooded AGAIN from some problem when they re-hooked up the water. The walls were completely gyprocked and was almost finished and now they will have to be done over again. Really who has this kind of luck???

Here’s the newest pic of my little one. I’ll put it up with and without the writing, so you can make out what you are seeing.

Big news we finally sold our house! Yay, and just in time we are supposed to start the house within the next 3 weeks.

Other than that not much going on, had a retarded day at work, started out with a code blue, lady crashed just as I was getting on shift, nice. Then my day was a chaotic from there, I was on meds, and i think EVERYONE had IV meds, potassium bolus, TPN, 5 new admissions in 1 hr, it was just a tad bit crazy for my liking, I so wished I were in bed. But made it through, and get to do it all over again tomorrow!

Went to my OB yesterday, didn’t gain any weight this time. Baby is measuring perfectly and I got a picture from my u/s. I’ll scan it later and post it, it’s of his face. He looks a lot like my son from what we could see, hell he could look completely different when he’s born. LOL. Next appt is in 2 weeks.

On the new house we are waiting for the mortgage to be approved, we will know by Monday, shit this might happen! We were pre=approved and they say everything looks great but until it’s finalized I just won’t count on it.

Anyway that’s my update, just getting ready to go to work again tomorrow!~

Wow, can’t believe it’s October already! I can finally say (according to one date my OB gave me) that I’m due next month! lol, although it’s the end of the month.

My visit went fine, I gained 1lb and my pressure is fine. Measuring dead on for weeks and the baby is now head down. I then had my GI appointment, I have no idea what that man said to me, I had E and A there with me so he never said anything about a follow-up appt and mumbled something about my family Dr. I dont really care for him anyway, i was hoping to see someone new later on.

Then I had to take my son to see his pediatrician. He went over the results of his testing and told me that he needs more 1:1 time with phonics, etc. Yesterday I finally got the written results of his test, so I have to take that to the school and figure out what approach they are going to use.

Took my kids to get their eyes tested today, my oldest needs glasses to see the board in school but won’t have to use them all the time. The other 2 children were fine.

Still working fulltime. I gave my letter to my unit manager yesterday as to when I will be going off, I told her mid-nov but hell that’ll be 38weeks, I’m sure I can get by with the first week of Nov finished. We’ll see. Anyway, must go now and lay down, I never got home from work until about 12am and then was up with A, she’s sick yet again and woke up with a lovely little heat rash. There really isn’t a dull moment for us in this house!
