Don't remind me! Everytime I think I'm getting a handle on things, another week rolls around. Oh, and we are officially half way through the month of June today

Yay!!!

Speaking of halfway through the month.. DH gets paid tomorrow and we are going thrift store shopping for newborn clothes, then Costco shopping for easy-to-eat food.

I meant to make a freezer meal all weekend, but it never happened I at least want 2 freezer meals before the baby comes!

I am starting to feel much more ready for this baby even though I still have diapers and mama cloth to make and a bunch of stuff to get on my midwives list. At this point, what gets done, gets done and what doesn't - oh well!!

We had a garage sale this weekend and made just over $300!!! I could not believe our turnout - even with the rain on Saturday we still did well. It was really exciting to watch our things disappear and make some money!

How was everyone's weekends?

When we had our yard sale we only made like $50! It sucked, and it was a beautiful day! Everything else got taken to the thrift store.

My weekend was busy.. I spent my time organizing the boys' room- not that they sleep there anyway, we are going to have 4 people in our small bedroom, but at least they have a place for all their stuff! I took out all my clothes out of my small dresser and that is now DS1's dresser, and new baby gets his old "dresser" (plastic bin with drawers).

DH and I went on a date last night and it was nice to get out just the 2 of us. He is now back to work for the rest of the week.. working out of town. This baby really needs to be born on a weekend so that he is there for the birth... he is only 2 hours away, but sometimes he's out working in the middle of nowhere, literally, and doesn't have cell phone coverage.. makes me VERY nervous!

We had a busy weekend. Friday morning DH had to work, so DS and I played outside and enjoyed the nice weather and then we went to the park in the afternoon. And since neither DH or I wanted to cook, we went out for pizza and ice cream. On Saturday morning we ran all of our usual errands and then we went to the zoo for the day and it was gorgeous weather. Sunday morning, we washed the cars and then we went to a welcome baby party.
I still can't believe June is halfway over and that I am almost 38 weeks pregnant. My nesting has kicked into full swing again and I cleaning house like crazy. Thank goodness Ds wanted to "help" me sweep/mop the floors yesterday morning.

I am not due till the 19th of July, so for me it is CRRRRAZY that I am going to be considered fullterm in 2 FREAKING WEEKS. Holy moley, I can't believe I am going to HAVE A BABY in 2-6 weeks. IN-freaking-sane. I didn't feel this "oh my gosh" about it last time... maybe I was sort of in denial about it since it was my first, or maybe this pregnancy has flown by so much more because it's my 2nd... but either way, I am just SUPER SUPER SUPER excited and just in awe that it's almost July!!

We're out of the state this week. My husband is the speaker at a youth summer camp so my 2 y.o. and I went along to hang out. It's sure nice to be at this beautiful camp, but it is kind of tiring to be alone with my 2 y.o. most of the time.... but at least she sees daddy.... if I were home it would be way worse! I think it's good she's spending so much time with me right before her brother is born- horseback rides, trips to the lake, etc... she's kind of getting sick of me I think LOL.

We drove 30 miles south of us to the nearest Krispy Kreme yesterday. I needed them, i swear! We came back with 2 boxes of donuts, and 1 box of mini donuts... and now i have a toothache

I finally bought something baby-related today - 3 onesies from a kids' resale store for $4. I'm very proud of myself. I think this might be the beginning of a mild nesting phase.

I'm burnt out on preparing for this baby. I'm tired, uncomfortable, my 5 yr old is sick and my almost 4 yr old. UGH! I'm so annoyed with him right now, not only has he been acting up, but he is having a TON of pee accidents, which he is doing on purpose, by being too lazy to go to the bathroom on time (pees all over the floor in FRONT of the toilet). My master bdrm looks like crap too, we moved a bunch of stuff out of the baby room and now it is in our room, nothing like two rooms looking like crap at the same time. I want to just hibernate until the baby decides to show up.

OMG, this is us too. Though the last couple of nights they've both been sleeping at least part of the night in thier room. I can't believe it but my 2 yo stays in there longer than the 5 yo!

Today I was remembering how EMPTY I felt after my daughter was born 12 years ago. I had just gotten so used to having another human being inside of me that when she was outside, even though I was holding her, I just felt empty. It made me feel sad that I will feel empty again once this little guy is born... and he is my last baby. We aren't going to have any more (took 10 years to get this one!). It surprises me since pregnancy in general has NOT been kind to me.

I am so tired, redudant i know! My kids are out of school now so 5 kids are home with me all day long. Can't keep the house clean for the life of me. Still dealing with lots of court stuff but my lawyer is taking over the majority so that i can have a break. Court last week was just an appearance the actual hearing is in 2 weeks. I may not make it though! Everytime i have contractions i tell them to go away because i am just not ready. THis last trimester has flown by and now i realize how immenint the birth is and i haven't prepared properly. I know though that i don't need to be ready, the baby just comes and fits into our lives like she was always there. I do look forward to meeting her. I just went and had some cranial sacral work done on me and i am feeling physically better, i just need a 2 week nap and i"ll be all set.

Thanks for all your support about the court stuff. I am trying to distance myself from it a bit so that i can stay focused on the baby instead. I may just postpone the hearings for awhile.

Hopefully i will get good news on the babies heartrate tomorrow at my midwife appointment because i need some calm on that issue.

The weekend went well. My couple came and spent Saturday night with me, which was a treat. (They don't get to come stay unless Dad is out of the apartment.) Sunday was my baby shower. It seemed like everybody got lost trying to get there, and one of the hostesses received the news that her beloved cat has a week to live. That was a downer, but we made the best of it. A friend brought her 17 mo. old son with her, and he helped provide plenty of entertainment. I got a lot of baby/kid books, which is wonderful! People were very generous; I was once again reminded that I'm blessed.

The other downer was that Mom didn't come. She had made it quite clear that she had no intentions of going. She went to a coworker's shower, instead. And while that cut to the quick, it was nice to be myself around friends and people who love and accept me for who I am -- not who I'm in love with -- and wanted to celebrate my baby with me.

I had an appointment with the midwife today. I've gained about 25 lbs. total, my stats are looking good, and the baby is head down with a healthy heartbeat. 35 weeks tomorrow. Eesh.

I cannot believe how much work I got done today! It is like I got this crazy burst of energy out of nowhere and just kept on working

Cleaned 2 years worth of clutter + dirt from the garage. Scrubbed the bathroom and tidied every corner and drawer in my bedroom. Trimmed bushes in the garden. Finished 5 loads of laundry!
I had some productive contractions earlier today, and if I did not know better, I would say this was going into labor soon. But probably not, with my babies' track record... At least I get a clean house!

OMG! I'm jealous of your energy! All I could manage today was defrosting chicken for dinner and vacuuming the upstairs. I feel like I'm moving in slow motion now with this big belly!

That's about where I am at too! Dh is taking Friday off so I can get *stuff* done so I am just going to save all my energy for then!

Serenekitten - my Mom is kind of the same way. She has a hard time accepting a lot of things about my life and, if I had to diagnose, I would peg her as having a borderline personality disorder. We rarely speak and when we do it is not good. She thinks she is great and I am the *messed up* one... sigh... at least we have people who love and accept us no matter what!

Oooh. I forgot to mention that I am going for an hour long massage tomorrow. I am so looking forward to it.

I just need to remember not to drink anything for like an hour beforehand or I will have to pee like 5 times in that hour.

Yeah, I know what you mean. My motto for the day is, "Friends are God's way of apologizing for family." I went through some of the stuff from the shower (including onesies everyone decorated with fabric markers), and it made me smile.
