No News Is Good News

Well, it's time for an update. All is well on the home front, for the most part. My check-ups at the doctors have now gone from once a month to every two weeks. I'm not exactly thrilled about this, since I've never been a fan of going to the doctor. Baby Delaney's heart beat was a strong 143, and boy oh boy is she an active kicker!

We've been slowly accumulating a lot of baby stuff. Friday the UPS man brought the crib, and today we picked out the bedding... it's really cute and has little froggies on it. We only have a few more big ticket items and we'll be set. It'll be nice to have everything ready for when she gets here.

In other exciting news, the weather has decided to warm up a little. It's been pretty nice, just have to deal with rain here and there. Friday I drove home from work with the sunroof open... it was great! I think that's about it for now...

Frigid Weather, Fighting Colds and Loads of Laundry

Well, I've kinda fallen behind in my blogging... But I've kept up with most everything else. I've been taking some pictures of our FRIGID freezing cold weather. Reading more and trying to stay on top of the household chores.

The weather has been crazy. It'll rain and pour then the sun will shine. It'll blow and blow and then hail or snow, and then the sun will shine. All the while the temperature stays WAY TOO LOW!!! I want warmer weather. I'm sick of the thermometer in my car constantly beeping at me, telling me it's 37 degrees and the warning of possible icy roads. I want temperatures a tad higher than 'freeze my butt off!' I'd settle for 60's. I just want it warmer!
It seems like the weather is keeping lots of people sick. This week I've been trying to fight off a cold. I feel down right slimy! I just want to sleep, but can't. I have a bit of a cough and a tingle in my throat and oh! the sneezing! Not to worry, I'm doing my best to take it easy, drinking lots of hot lemon and honey and resting. If all else fails, I'll have the doctor check me out at my monthly scheduled appointment (Monday morning).
Tuesday night I was invited to play Bunco with my Grandma and her friends at Curves. I've only played bunco one other time and it's fun, so I was excited. I didn't win, neither did Grandma, but we had fun. I met a lot of crazy ladies and it was an all around good time.
Other than that I've just been attempting to keep up with all the laundry that seems to be needing to be done. Oh, and last Saturday was my busiest day yet. We went and watched "The Watchmen" (my gosh! what a long movie!) It was an ok movie, not bad. BUT! It was over two and a half hours! Do you know how difficult it is for a pregnant woman to sit that long without a potty break?! I did it though, barely! Haha. After the movie, Dave and I met up with my parents and Angie and Kenny at the TRAC in Pasco for the Rough Stock Extreme Bull Riding competition. That was fun, other than the fact that everyone kept walking back and forth infront of me, making me stand up practically every five minutes. I was irritated to say the least. But we managed to have fun. It was just super hard staying awake that long. I was SOOO tired! (I'm yawning as I typed that!)
That's about it for now... hopefully I'll do better at this blogging thing.

So Happy!!

So happy the weatherman was WRONG! He said we were supposed to have snow yesterday and today, and ta-da!!! No snow yet! YEA!!! The only downside is that it's FREEZING outside.
I swear I'm getting bigger by the day. I've really started to notice the difficulties of getting up and down. I know, I know, it's not going to get any better.... just going to keep getting harder. I'll manage I'm sure.
Getting really excited for next week. Not excited about the getting older bit... But being 27 isn't much different from being 26. The exciting part is our mini-vacation to Portland. I get to visit Miss Erin and Miss Alexis while Dave is in classes for his Union. I'll be sure to post an update with pictures after we get home. Yea!
Nothing much else is going on. Just work work work and trying to keep things in order here at home. Spent much of the weekend organizing, cleaning and doing laundry (YUCK!). Household chores are never-ending. Well, time for my television program then off to bed.

Is It Nap Time Yet?

Well, I made it through a week of work. Man am I tired. I didn't realize how tired running around work all day was. I do feel accomplished though... I've been able to get a lot of stuff done, and that makes me feel good. In the 4 days I was at work, I almost completely cleared my over-flowing desk of work orders. The down-side to that was coming back to work today (Tuesday, since I'm taking Mondays off) and there being several more work orders stacked for me to get done. This morning was tough, I knew I needed to get out of bed and go to work (hey! it's good exercise, it's a paycheck, and it gets me out of the house) but that doesn't mean I wanted to. I was so comfy cozy in bed, that's where I wanted to stay. Who wants to go outside in 20 something degree weather, start a cold car, and actually go to work?! Not me... BUT, I did, and I got a lot done. Getting a lot done is awesome, it's the after math that kinda sucks. I feel like I could sleep for a week and still be tired. Anyway, enough of my complaining. YAWN, time to get cozy and ready for bed.

Back In The Saddle Again!

I'm officially back in action. It's hard to admit it, but I did miss work and Bob... Even missed Marty (but only just a little). It was strange being back, but I had a good day. I ended up getting a lot done, not as much as I would've like, but oh well. I'm not to over do it, not to be stressed and not to worry. So I will do my best to keep a stress-free positive attitude. I've been warned that if I don't take it easy and keep from being stressed that I won't be working. To this I just roll my eyes and say oh well.
I didn't work a full 8 hours, only worked 6, but hey, that was 6 busy hours after being cooped up and stuck at home for over 4 months. I'm tired and beat, but it's not as bad as I thought. I even managed to make dinner when I got home. Woo-hooo! Tomorrow I'll try making it in a little sooner than I did today, but if I don't, I don't. I get there when I get there. It'll be a good way to build back my stamina. Who knows, I may even be ready to go work out again soon. I know, I know, nothing too strenuous. It's just good to be doing something again. :)

Well, today was a great day. Other than waiting FOREVER at the doctor's office, a lot got accomplished. The ultrasound went great, the baby is healthy and doing fine. The doctor made my day when after much discussion and pleading (complaining and whining too) he removed my IV line!! YEA!! So, I'm no longer stuck, tied down to the blasted IV machine!!! Granted the removal was uncomfortable, and my arm hurts, I'm still very much a happy camper. Oh, and last but not least about the doctor's visit... It's a girl :)

As far as my goals for 2009 go, I'm doing pretty good. Got rid of the IV, going into work tomorrow, baby's healthy, I'm blogging, and over the last week I've been working on my knitting project (a baby blanket). I just have to keep it up.

Happy 2009!

Here's to everyone having a bigger, brighter and happier 2009! I've decided that I'm doing away with making New Year's Resolutions... Instead I'm going to have things (goals, thoughts, inklings and inspirations, whatever) that I'm going to do more of. Not a change of who I am or what I do, but minor improvements. But we'll see what happens. My goals for this new year are as follows:

1) Get rid of the darn-blasted IV machine!

2) Keep in touch more (blog, email, snail-mail, phone calls)

3) Start and FINISH a big knitting project. (I WILL figure out that blanket!)

4) Read more

5) Exercise... well right now this means get to a point to where I CAN exercise!

6) Have a happy, healthy, perfect baby (Baby's arrival is tentatively scheduled for 06/02/09)

That's it. That's all. I'm sure I'll add to that list as I think of things.

Now, since I'm a terrible, forgetful blogger it's time for an update. Since I quit blogging I have slacked off in my Group Power classes... not all to being lazy, but due to medical complications. No worries, I'm just pregnant and having a hard time. But other than the IV I'm all but fine now. I'm 19 weeks along and going for the BIG ultrasound next monday. We're hoping that the baby cooperates so that we know who's going to be arriving in June. So far, most people think it's a girl, but we shall see. Either way, girl or boy, I just want a happy and healthy baby.

I'm super excited today. Dave's Eagles beat the Giants, so he's on cloud 9. Since today is a good day, I felt up to climbing the hill to the mail box, and suprise!!! Miss Erin sent me a box! I finally have my Erin-made socks! (Which I have been wearing since I ripped the package open.) The package also had all kinds of goodies to help take care of my pregnant lady feet, or so I'm told. Thank you, thank you, thank you Miss Erin! I love my box!

Anyway, time to post this and show off my new socks. Will do my best to keep up with my goals (especially blogging more). I should fix my goal list to say that I'm going to encourage Erin to blog more often too... since she made me a blogger :)
