Ooohhhh, sitting by the fire does sound wonderful, with help of course!
Kuddos to Kate for replying to everyone, holy moly that's a lot.
So we spent the end of last week at my mom's and it was nice, she is a lot of help with my kiddies. My step-dad however does things in a playful manor that he thinks are funny and my kids do NOT think are funny. My 3 year old cried several times and told me that Papa was being mean to him and he didn't like him at all and could we leave. He made my 8 year old cry a few times being too rough with him, and once I had to tell my mom that Bill was being mean to the kids and could she please step in. UGH I hate that part. And while he does love us, he's a spoiled rotten baby and plays video games with the surround sound on about as loud as it can get so we have to yell to speak to each other. of course I'm always asking him to please turn it down and to please let the kids watch TV because it's almost bed time or something but he's never willing to "share" his toys. So after about 48 hours he's ready for us to leave because my mom's focus is not directly on him.
After that we went to my dad's in TN ... they live on a farm in the country and have a wood burning stove as their heat. They ALWAYS have wood in it and my hubby is so uncomfortable at their house because it's hotter than HELL (literally) there....so he complains the entire time. Hubby has some kind of infection (sinus or other) and whined about being sick, needing to go to bed at 7:30p, and sleeping til 10a that I was ticked off at him the entire trip. Then it rained at a steady pace, enough to flood everything, and keep us inside the hot house from Saturday until yesterday morning that the kids didn't even get to enjoy going to the barn and riding horses or anything. Of course we needed to visit my grandmother's that are both in their mid 80's but one smokes like a chimney and I had to call to warn her to put the cigarette out so I could bring my kids in and hubby complained about the littles having a cough and why did we have to go etc etc ... UM BECAUSE SHE'S 85 YEARS OLD AND MY GRANDMOTHER AND WE WONT BE THERE LONG AND SHE WON'T DARE SMOKE AROUND THEM BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME!!! Now, under NO circumstances would I subject my children to a home that's smoked in ANY other time but YES I do take them there because I know she can't walk and we might not ever see her again because she's old and sick. There!!!!
Ok, more news .... SIL ... you know the one, the one that talked smack about our joke on April fools about me being pregnant. Hubby and she have always had a rocky relationship, they fought like cats and dogs growing up, she's petty and childish and just about everything else you can think of. PLUS she's always been pretty rude to me from all aspects. She UNfriended us on FB on April 2nd after I emailed her asking her to be nice to me. Well, occasionally she texts or calls him (he NEVER calls/texts her) and Thanksgiving day was one of those days. His phone rings and we don't get reception in my mom's house so he grabs it and runs outside. She says ... guess what, I'M PREGNANT, I'm 10w and due June 21st. He responds with, wow that's great congratulations!!! T is pregnant too, and 10w and due due 24th. Her response?! WTF are you kidding?! They hang up and I send her a text from my phone saying "I am so so excited for you guys and wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy and I can't wait to meet my niece or nephew. She ignored me completely. :(
And I had another bleeding episode while in TN, lots of bleeding actually. Since I already know about the SCH, expected it to happen again, and had no cramping what ever I just went on about my evening but checking on things regularly. All is better now and I'm kind of hoping that the bleed is gone. I did agree to the NT scan and blood work after much deliberation and it's scheduled for Friday. I will be going alone because DH has an interview, but that's ok too. We'll probably get to find out the gender since a good tech can tell based on the direction the "nub" is pointing at 12 weeks. DH is still on the fence about finding out so I might not even tell him LOL.
That's it for me, a bit nauseous now but guess I just need to eat.
