Missing the ones you love!

I imagined my time alone as peaceful and relaxing. I am realizing that missing two important people in your life is hard work! Sj and T are now both hours and hours away from me and each other! Last night was my second night falling asleep alone in a very very long time. It was hard to shut my mind off from watching unsolved true crime shows (note to self never watch these type of shoes while in a empty house at night!)….I actually slept with an ax beside the bed and the hallway light on hahaha! T will have a good laugh about the ax, but it’s staying there!!

Miss them so much! Hope this week goes by FAST!

Leave,Goodbyes, And Diapers

It's official I have 6 days left of work - I decided to take my leave early. I was originally going to work right through until I delivered our baby boy right at my desk! I really have slowed down and feel like I need some time to relax and just get ready for this little guy to arrive (and move). My feet are swollen, my back is killing me, I am more tired then I have ever been in my life, the heartburn kills and I am sore at every point on my body! Feeling all these little things is worth it, but when you work feeling that way it makes for a very long day! not to mention we are moving (more on that further down!) It feels so strange to me that in a little over a week I will not be going to work for one whole year, I have worked since I can remember. (I was in school when Sj was born so she was in daycare since she was 6 months old)

We have decided that moving is go. Next week I will be alone at home for one whole week well T is up where we will be moving working. Sj will be miles away as well visiting her grandparents. I am a little nervous to be completely alone but it might be really relaxing too! It has been very stressful on me. I usually am a "go with the flow" type of person but lately I have been stressed to the max about the move and all that we have to do in a very very short amount of time! Biggest thing is that we don't have a place to live yet,  although we have a lot of people on the hunt for us and we know we will have one very soon, it just seems hard to imagine moving when you don't really have a home to move to!

Oh!! and we are now the proud owners of cloth diapers! YAY! :) I love the idea of cloth diapering,  I  really hope we can get the hang of it!!

Hope all is well with everyone!!

Life's a dance...

Yesterday we got some news. Good news but at the same time it was that stressful life changing BIG decision kind of news. We are excited about the possibility of a new start but deep inside that rumbling fear is rising ever so quickly. T got a job offer that is more pay, benefits, no night shifts or weekends and is way more stable then the one she has now. The job is a dream come true for all of us. It seems like a no brainer that we should take it! The downfall is we would have to move fairly quickly and make a decision in the next few days! The timing is perfect in the way that I can take my maternity leave at any time now that we are only 8 weeks from our due date. Moving is a big pain but with three dogs and a pregnant lady this could be hell, we have looked online and it seems to be a little more expensive to rent out where we would need to move. So would we really be making any extra cash if we were putting the “extra” on rent? So many things run through our brains… Funny how these things pop up at strange times in your life? For now we will wait and see what happens in the next few days!

Take care blogglandians! 

With all the really hot ...REALLY REALLY HOT and sticky weather all I can see in this pictures is that yummy slushy!

Our DIY Photos!

My week off was hectic in the beginning. We did A LOT of organizing and cleaning ...was not fun but needed to be done in the worst way! Near the end of the week we got to relax and this is when we decided to take some photos! We planed a beautiful drive and we stop and take pictures along the way at various spots we liked.  It was a lot of fun! We don't have a professional camera in any way just a regular point and shoot with a tripod is all we used. It was nice to get out and finally get some pictures of us! (Our Daughter was away at camp so we will be doing some family ones when the little guy is born!)

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! :)

32 weeks

Single digits! ( In weeks anyways!)

I have been here checking up on all the blogs I follow just haven’t had much to post!

Well we have 9 weeks to go until our due date.  It seems crazy to think we are this close to holding our little guy! Not much has been going on. The weather is hot and sticky so I have been laying low in the A/C! He moves like crazy inside me, sometimes I have to quickly stand up or cross my legs because he hits a spot and it feels like I am going to pee my pants!!!  I have been getting Braxton Hicks contractions off and on for a few weeks now. They happen often but I was told that they will and not to worry about them unless you get more then 4 in an hour.  This week I am on vacation, T and I plan on doing a Maternity photo shoot (YAY) We just need to find a nice spot to take them! Will post pics ASAP! We don’t have anything big planed so it will be a fun “staycation” for us! 

Have a great week blogglanders! :-)
