jakesmama, YES on the random weepiness/losing of sh!t, too. all the time. I have zero control over my emotions lately. :/
kel, someone way back in the day posted a pattern for an upcycled sweater made into a snow suit that was adorable. Of course, I didn't bookmark it or anything, so now I can't find it...
christy, good luck with the room changing! take it easy, though, huh?? yay for talking to that woman in the restroom...I am constantly amazed at how so many around me seem to take absolutely no responsibility for their own health situations and don't even bother to look anything up, taking everything their doc says as gospel. (What do you call the med student who finishes last in his class? Doctor.) Hopefully you started her on a path that leads to a better outcome.
annaka, I tend to be an all-at-once kind of person, whether it be nesting or any project I do. So for better or worse, the braxton hicks and other discomforts have kept me from going all out. I hope your family feels better soon!
sego, I would LOVE for my bathroom to be appropriately scrubbed like that. (but I'm not willing to do it...yet?) Kind of scary about the contractions--glad they died out, though.
Chica, we had most of my birth supply list stuff on hand anyway, but I'm getting some disposable toiletries-type things at Walgreens. How exciting to be getting close to moving and doing all the nesting all at once. Is your DP off work/have the ability to do all the heavy lifting? AWESOME about the 4Runner from the guy at your church! (and I love black bean/sweet potato burritos--YUM)
AFM...OH, FFS! Dh didn't think we needed to bring the bucket along with us Saturday when we looked at the newer Prius, so we just tested with the base. I was feeling a little uncomfortable with having to drive that all the time, thinking that DS1 wouldn't be able to buckle/unbuckle easily enough. So we went to the dealership down the street to re-test them *with* the bucket. *They.don't.fit!* But because of a quirk of compounding interest and engineer-DH's math sk1llz, he's going to get the newer car anyway (it will actually save us money), and we'll just switch up who drives what, and I'll drive the damn van ('04 Sienna with door issues). I'm actually relieved. (But he still has a coworker who is coming over tomorrow after work to try a different configuration we hadn't attempted yet.) I, on the other hand, give up; I concede that we will not be able to get our 3 across the back of ANY Prius (except the '12 V, which we can't afford) safely, and I will have to just drive the vehicle that gets 1/3 of that awesome gas mileage and cut back on trips more. I QUIT!
...and I'm pretty certain that in the next two weeks, he'll detail the hell out of the car to sell it instead of scrubbing/detailing the hell out of the inside of the house like I'd prefer.
OH! and while we were at the dealership, my 7yo decided to run around and around one of the cars with his hands in his coat pockets. That meant that when he inevitably tripped over the parking barrier, his head broke his fall instead of his hands. So he has yet another concussion--some sensory processing things and inheriting my general propensity for accidents mean he's had at least 5 "respectable" mild concussions, and maybe more small ones that we just don't recall or know about. DH is dead freaking serious when he says he wants to get him a special helmet to wear anytime he's not sleeping or bathing. I'm just glad it started swelling outward--I was scared I was going to spend all night at the children's hospital with him. But he claims he doesn't even have a headache, though the bump hurts a lot. (In case it helps anyone else, this is the assessment I use...if it's moderate-severe, we'd go to the hospital.)
And I broke 2 nails fighting with the damned carseats.
