UGH! I had this nice posted typed out. Was just about to post it... when the power when poof and then came right back on.
It is really annoying. We've had so many power outages in the last year. I can understand the ones during the bad storms but the ones that happen 2 hours after the storm has passed?? Or like today... beautiful clear blue sunny sky... can't they kind the system up?? It's also really annoying that across the street still has power but we don't because of the design of the power gird.
Thanks, we think Jack is pretty darn sweet too.
I was looking at some of his infant pictures last night, I can't believe we'll have another bitty baby in the house soon.
: I remember commenting to David the other night that I can't believe we are about to have THREE children. He laughed and said I still can't believe we have the two we have already. :LOL
I think I'm in denial on how quickly this time is going by. I've got this weekend set aside to do some 'major' cleaning and re-arranging. I had planned to do a lot of it this week but David suddenly decided Monday night that he was going to Austin to spend a couple days with his cousin this week and they were going to ride motorcycles around a bit... suuuuuuure honey, you go right a head and just take off for a couple of days. no problem. no I don't have any plans, don't you worry about me and the kids we'll be just fine.
Idiot forgot to put Tori's carseat back into the Discovery and I really don't fit in the backseat well enough to get it snug enough anymore. I tried once and got a horrible crick in my back and side. SO I wasn't able to do any of the things that I NEEDED to get down this week. Didn't make it to Sam's, the grocery store, the Post Office. He's said I'll be home Thurs night or Friday early morning at the latest... he walked in the door about 15 minutes ago... it's after 4pm.
I think next week I'll just suddenly need to go out for a while and leave him with the kids all day. :LOL Maybe I'll go see a movie by myself. Sit in a nice cool theater, go watch a foreign flim or 'chick flick' that he doesn't want to see.
Ellen- a friend's DD got HFM and they gave her a mix of equal parts liquid mylanta and liquid benadryl to swish/ gargle spit. 2-3 times a day. You can also a pharmasist to add lidocaine to it for adults since you know not to swallow. It really made her DD's mouth feel a lot better. Lidocaine is considered safe during pregnancy.
Caroline- I'd keep the swing too. JIC, Tori would only nap in her swing or on the chest/breast. It made a couple of meals bearable and we both got to eat hot food!! And Jack was pretty cool with it too, it was a 'safe' place to let him hang out in while I was cooking or showering. Sometimes he'd even fall asleep in it.
Hold onto the box in case he hates it. BRUs will take just about anything back.
Hopefully that job offer will work out to be a really good thing.
I understand the possible dissapointment of not moving to the farm earlier but hopefully it will be worth it. Hope you have a safe trip out to the farm. Try to not get to close to the fumes from the bonfire especially if they are burning 'trash'.
Hope you aren't overdoing! Try to rest as much as you can.
Christi- hope that placenta is a moving north like it should.
Sarah- that meal train is a great idea!!
Well I'm going to post this before the power "goes off" again.
