I'm glad you had a good time, even if parts were icky! And finger's crossed for a good job with all the benefits you need! :)
It's hot as heck here, and humid too. The temps should be in the 90-100 range with daily mini-showers that will do nothing but make the humidity worse. I've never been a big fan of hot/humid weather (humidity and I just don't get along) so this is going to be a looooooong week. I do have the kiddie pool inflated though and the kids have been splashing in it every afternoon... I generally let them in it around 3 when the side of the hosue provides shade, and then let them play for an hour or so till they turn blue. Then I throw them into the shower and they put on pajamas. That means that when dh gets home we can have dinner and more or less toss the kiddos right into bed. It's been nice since I've been getting to bed before 10! The only bad part is that the heat/humidity work to keep me uncomfy and not really asleep until closer to midnight. But at least it's quiet and I'm laying down. LOL
I bought our last "baby thing" today... it's a car seat, and not the one I wanted, but we were given a gift certificate for a specific amount at Target specifically for a car seat sooooo while it is "just" an infant seat (we usually use convertible seats since those are less expensive in the long run), it's fine because it was "free" and because now that we have a minivan it's not so important that the seats all be Radians (which are very trim and were the only seats we could fit three across in our subaru). I'll still be browsing for second hand dipes, and if someone gave us a toilet sprayer I'd be thrilled, but other than the "big sib gifts" the baby will bring and a box of newborn sposies (we sposie till the cord stub falls off and life isn't so hectic) I think we're more or less done with baby shopping!
Saw the midwives a few days ago and they're not thrilled about my camping trip, but they didn't say "don't go". So today I pulled out fabric to start making clothing for the kiddos... this camping trip is an SCA event, so it's basically two weeks long, on 500 acres, with 25,000 people all dressed in medieval style clothing and doing medieval style stuff. When I pulled out their clothes from last year there wasn't much I could salvage for the kiddos. Pennsic (the event) is hard on clothes, and my kids are hard on clothes, and they've all grown! So while we were out today I picked up a few cotton curtains at the thrift store and I'll whip up a few tunics for each kiddo. Or I'll try. Right now I don't have the energy to stand up, let along measure/cut/sew.
A lot more contractions... and I'm pretty sure AppleBelle-y is experimenting with dropping/staying engaged... every so often she'll cram herself down low for a few hours and UGH!
