We’ve been busy bees over here, well, as busy as my big ol’ prego body will allow me. What’s funny is I have gained hardly any weight this time around and it has been the toughest pregnancy yet. So, I told Dan I need to play catch up and gain the additional 30 pounds I did with the boys, maybe flubber is the doorway to an easier pregnancy? I keep racking my brain, google symptoms and attempting to “feel better” and have slowly, but surely come to the conclusion that it just isn’t in the books for this time around. 33 weeks along, and we’re stoked about that, so I will do my best to roll with the sickness, lack of appetite, and insane bouts of GI issues that have come back to plague me.
Like the hubs says, everything can be cured with a cocktail. So my cure is still about 6 weeks away 🙂
Enough of that whiny crap though. We have had some pretty fun stuff happening around here midst everything else. Our trees are DOWN. Like, every last stinking stump is chopped down! Our front and backyard looks exactly like the depressing scene from the Lorax where the last tree is chopped.
While the yard is a total and complete mess, it looks as if a bomb went off, we have landscapers coming out this week to quote us out on our “plans”. Thankfully I got the hubs to cancel the pool guy consultation, while an in ground pool would just simply be the tits, I told him it had to wait. Our goal is to own a lake house in the next 2 years, and I told him that must come first! He agreed, and cancelled that sweet temptation. Plus, can you imagine ME with a pool? Hanging over the kids worrying about an accident. Or even worse, lounging like a lizard of a housewife with a mojito in hand, forgetting I have a house to maintain or children to feed?? HA.
We have to really sit down and crack into the yard plan – it’s overwhelming when your vision doesn’t come along with a genie in a bottle – so the experts will hopefully help guide us in the right direction.
Brody is borderline obsessed with his new roller skates Dan got him for his birthday. Of course Dan got himself a pair, so this 90’s roller derby dou are skating up and down the street and playing hockey whenever possible. I am impressed at how well B is doing on these, sometimes I forget he just turned 7, and then comes 8, and well, mom has got to stop thinking of him as a 4 year old.
We have the nursery wall reveal this week! It turned out SO amazing you guys, Dan did such a fantastic job and actually enjoyed the process. I am extra excited to break it down for you guys so you can do it in your own home as well. We already have another section of our house that will get the same treatment this summer, I just cannot wait! The nursery looks so sweet, even bare with just the crib put into it. I cannot wait to show you guys, and the final nursery reveal will happen as soon as RugsUsa get their act together and ship me my rug I ordered on JANUARY 1. Yes – nearly 4 months on back order. Killin’ me guys, killin’ me.
This week is spring break for the boys, and of course the weather is going to be mediocre – not surprised. I’m not supposed to be doing “too much” anyway, so I am sure our days will be spent close to town and at home. Many of our mornings lately have that sweet face right next to ours, he has conquered the morning rooster routine and loves to wake us up for the day. But watch your words, mention it’s a school day and you will not be off to a great start. He prefers to hear that he gets to be at home with mom all darn day, my official side kick.
So that’s that folks.
33 weeks pregnant. Two kiddos home all week-long. Hubby busting butt on work, school, and the nursery. Life is good.
