Hi, all! I'm still alive. We lost Internet the past few weeks. Andy called to have our cable pulled for sometime next week and it was gone the next morning. Eh, we still had cable TV (a smaller package, but still the channels we watch the most) until yesterday morning. Ugh. Now we have antennas on two of our TVs and we're getting wireless Internet from church.
Happy birthday, all!
Yay for those who are in the homestrech! I can't belive that on a technicality (as it is August) my baby is due next month
I'm hardly showing, but at the same time, I'm feeling my belly more. I'm also feeling the baby more. I'm too the point where I need to lean more, instead of sitting straight, but the chair I'm using for my desk is too square and my husband's desk chair doesn't fit my desk well. Ugh.
As for baby clothes, I think I have enough to comfortably dress a couple of babies. My church held a shower for me and I probably got hundreds of dollars worth of stuff. My parents, sister, her 4-y-o daughter, my husband's parents 21-y-o sister and their aunt came. On Sunday, the day after, my sister and mother who are both very organized people, helped me go through the stuff, decide what I wanted to keep and sort the clothes into sizes. The zero to three month stuff is in one box, 3-6, in another, and the bigger stuff in another, all marked. I also have a box of clean baby clothes that I'm either going to put in my car, or just very clearly mark, so it's available right away. I'm hoping they'll both be able to come on the 12th to help.
I'm almost done with the thank you notes, but I ran out of cards. I have some old stationary somewhere that I might just pull out and use. We have thank you note cards leftover from our wedding, but we're not sure where....
I still have much to do for the baby, but we're waiting until after we move so we have less to move.
I think I don't have much left to do for the move. I have to pack my other closet, but the track doors are broken again, so I'm going to ask my husband to take them off to make packing easier. I have random stuff in the basement to pack, but it's just stuffing stuff back into boxes of stuff that was just stuffed in the boxes from the last move last August. Sigh. I have to pack the rest of the kitchen stuff and the pantry and bathroom stuff, but I'll wait until next week, maybe do the dishes on Saturday and just live off of paper plates. I'm not keen on paper, but sometimes things have their use. Boxes will be packed, but not closed yet.
At least for moving day I won't have to do much. I'm not allowed, my husband told me. Andy has been putting announcements in the church bulletin and giving verbal announcements before the service during the time of announcements, so who knows. There is also a group from church helping to build a house for Habitat that day, too. Andy has promised alcohol and pizza for those who help. I just hope my husband has time to do stuff. He has a funeral on Friday and one on Monday. He was selfishly hoping they would die after we move and let the new intern get some funeral experience in.
One thing that is concerning me is that I don't have a doctor yet in Columbus. We were hoping to have one by July at the latest and start driving down there for appointments. Nope. Maybe I can have my dream birth with the next pregnancy. (Doula or mid-wife, water and/or home birth.... I just pray that I can not only get vegan food at the hospital, but real food, too.)
Sigh. One day at a time. Now, I have to get up so I can breath again, and, I want dinner.
