so as of midnight, I think I'm good to go heh, but I actually am hoping I get one more week of work in, at least. The mr.'s bday is May 27, so that'd be a funny bday present

ARgle BaRgle. I wrote for over 5 hours today and finished my final paper. School is now over for me. I am mentally drained right now. I am looking forward to getting some rest tonight and then trying to convince this baby to show up. My insides have been a mess for two days now with no letup in sight... so maybe... who knows. I have to admit that I have been in school for so long that I am a little dazed that it is all over.
Hope everyone has a great night!
married to Mike Mama to my furry babies just gave birth to our first DS.
so proud of you, elonwy! woooo no more school! i remember that feeling...i was SO RELIEVED this time last month. oh hey, it was my birthday a month ago today! crazy.
i just realized this weekend is SO BUSY for us! and i am so super excited about that...i figure it will take my mind off sgt. stubbornpants (yes, her name has been changed) and her ignorance of the eviction notice she has been served. tomorrow there is a parade at 10:45 we're going to. derek has to clean the church after lunch, then at 2 we have a playdate at the waterpark with our friends...becky is 3 months pregnant and i am obviously 10 months pregnant so we plan on laying in the shade while the boys watch the kids. we have to be back at church at 4 to let a rental in, then we will eat and clean and wash some diapers i think. i want to get our room straightened up and our laundry done. sunday we have church in the morning and a baby shower at 2pm. my sister and her husband and kid are coming to town to buy an ab circle pro (also known as the worst excuse ever to come check up on me haha). she kind of assumed they would stay with us and i was like uh...no friggin way dude. i don't want to have to be stressed out by them (my sister is like...really awesome...but has bi-polar we think, and she's unmedicated...and they yell at their kid a lot etc etc. it's realllllllllllly stressful having them stay with us. plus i don't want to have to kick them out at 2am if we are in labour, you know?)...so anyways, they decided to splurge on a hotel. so after the baby shower we'll probably swim at their pool and then head home and crash hard. (i am SO EXHAUSTED lately). i guess monday we don't have to do anything...so really just the next 2 days are super busy.
trying to keep busy and out of the house as much as possible (but not too far from home) ...there's some (COUGHLOTSCOUGH) photos under the cut of the last few days. if you're my friend on facebook you can just ignore it altogether as they are the same! hope you're all doing well. ELVs to everyone in labour. i checked myself and i'm still hovering around 7 cm. weee.

i told haye the baby would come after his tooth fell out. it came out wednesday.
i can't BELIEVE how different he looks! he no longer looks like a 5 year old to me. *sigh*
spring has sprung in the beautiful okanagan.
kids are so awesome. ^_^
uh. the lake was SO COLD. i have no idea how they were in it.

apparently my post was too long
alright...i have no idea what was going on with these women. they were like 35-40 and this guy spent the entire time (AT THE TODDLER PARK AT THE BEACH) filming them. they wore matching outfits (they changed a few times, always high heels with a short skirt and a matching top) and had scripts...but they did weird things...like swinging on the swings...saying in "sexy" voices "I'M A SWINGER!" at the same time...and then the ice cream truck pulled up and they went and bought ice cream together while it was filmed...it was so strange. derek and i are convinced it was like the establishing shots of the worst porno ever made :P

Evergreen and BHappy - I have to say, my stress and general ARGH!!!! levels have dropped significantly since I decided nothing was going to happen! Lol, particularly in regard to dh's job. He's over an hour away right now, and I'm sort of ok with that. Monday he's taking a load to Atlanta - about two hours away - and he could be gone all day, you never know how a delivery or pick-up will go. I'm not even worried about it. I was totally about him going even half an hour away last week. NOW the only thing I have to worry about is being so relaxed somehow getting things going. :) Like you said, BHappy, either way, these babies are coming SOON.
Seafox - My mom is theoretically making my son a storm at sea, that's the only reason I recognized it! :) It's such a cool pattern! Sounds like you have a great OB, if she brings chiros and acupuncturists in to her office! I love it when everyone works together. :) And I had the same idea about this baby with regards to being a gemini - AND I don't pay any attention to astrology either! Lol... my dh is a "rabbit" and it's year of the rabbit, and he's also a taurus, so I was hoping (for no reason in particular whatsoever) that this baby would be a gemini like me in a happy blending pattern. :) Tomorrow's my birthday, as well, so that would be a double bonus, but like I said in my last post - I'm sure it'll be next weekend! Ish.
Camprunner, the good days are such unexpected blessings at this point, aren't they??
Elonwy - CONGRATULATIONS!! And for your dh too - what wonderful timing for your LO to arrive in, with both of you ready for all the next phases you're about to embark upon!
Ryleeee - I love the pics! of Haye! It's amazing how just one little tooth can change so much about their appearance and how you see them. AND the flowers! AND the women - that's hysterical!!
AFM - Well, like I said, I'm so much more relaxed, which just makes everything easier. I scrubbed down a changing table we were given yesterday and decided I needed to sand and paint it, it's a little rough. But clean! NO clue what color to go with... don't really have a theme. The house is more like home every day and we're planning to spend the night there for the first time tomorrow night. My mw will be back tomorrow so I can stop worrying about her dog - he was *so* stressed out that first week she was gone, but he seems to have settled down in the past week, and neither of his 'hot spots' look like he's been going at them too much. Poor dude.
My only somewhat sketchy concern right now is this apartment being clean when we get out of it for good on Wed. It's really hard for me to relax and trust that my dh and/or mom will clean it like I would, particularly since it's my mw's apartment, in her basement, and we'll still be "working" together afterwards. Actually, my mom would/will do a great job, it's dh being more laid back that I worry about! It was by no means pristine when we moved in, (not trashed either!) but I just need it to be better than that when we leave!
i got two boxes from my mom yesterday and a box from a girlfriend the day before that - like baby showers in boxes, each of them! I had so much fun going through everything. Mom went OFF sewing tons of wipes, nursing pads, prefolds, flats and receiving blankets, a diaper stacker, a great quilted toile diaper bag AND a mei tai. And there's another box in the mail. She loves her new serger and she's not afraid to show it, clearly. :) I had to tease my gf that the stuff I told her I was still planning to buy was a *suggestion* list of *options*, not a *shopping* list, but I'm so grateful to them both for spoiling me so much - the time and effort it would've taken me to find this stuff shopping on my own, to say nothing of the money involved - would've been pretty considerable. My feet and my bank account are both deeply relieved. :) Now I have a ton of diaper washing to do! And I'm excited about it! LOL!
Continuing the theme of LOTS of ELVs to you all! :)
It's such a relief to finally trust yourself.
