talk about don't irritate the preggo... ds slammed his head into my teeth this morning and I completely blew up, and now feel like a total a$$
: it wasn't so much that it hurt like hell, which it did, but that I get flooded with childish feelings of not being respected, wanting to stamp my foot and throw things (which I did
and worrying about him hurting the baby, which in fact I know he won't do, I'm just having a typical preggo overreaction. yuck. who was it that said they felt like a 4 y.o.? I'm right there with ya! he told me I was not his friend anymore and he would never play with me ever again (which he tells me at least once a day, whenever I set any kind of limit). then a few minutes later he brought me a pop tart and we made up
: I guess that's the good part of being 4!
AmBam, holy moly, mow the grass??!!
I bought 2 yoga videos which I got in feb or march, I think. one of them I've done a few times, and I do really like it, and my back feels better when I do it, but when I have to clean in order to be able to do it and I have to get up before ds... basically a mountain of excuses to wade through and I just don't get there. the other one I've never even watched. I was just thinking yesterday that with only 8 weeks to go I should at least watch it once!!
I had intended to walk regularly as well and that just hasn't happened either.
the craft fair yesterday was pretty fun. I didn't sell hardly anything (anyone need homemade bug spray or facial cleanser?!
) but I saw pretty much all of my closest mom friends and enjoyed some good conversations, all away from my messy house, and kid-free! my back is still hurting but it's a little less bad, even after I stayed up until 1:30 am cleaning (had my first caffeine since october!! oopsie!). I think I'll try the chiropractor this week.
dh got the subfloor replaced in the bathroom yesterday. now he has to figure out how to frame in the new tub and get it in there, then the plumber can come and move the pipes and after that it will be all downhill. I need to go pick out the tile...
regarding floors: we tore out all the carpet in this house before even moving in, at my insistence. I was totally willing to live on subfloors rather than breathe carpet yuckies. I highly, highly recommend wood floors!! we have red oak. now, I'll admit that dh is quite handy and has a good bit of experience with working with wood, but it is also true that installing tongue-and-groove wood flooring is really not too difficult. I live near the carpet capitol of the US, and for some reason that also means all other flooring can be found really cheap here, too. so our gorgeous red oak floors, finished with danish oil (least toxic, not shiny, LOVE IT!), were... lemme think... maybe $800 for 3 bedrooms and an office? something like that. I know it's higher elsewhere, but if you go to a lumber place and not a big box store like home depot you'll get a much better deal. also look for builder's surplus stores in your area. very worth it! dh is going to put tongue-and-groove cypress up on the walls in the bathroom-- that's how easy it is to work with. you do need a few specific tools, like a special hammer and air-driven nail gun, and the right saw, but that's about it.
