One Week In....

I made it through the first week of not working. I can't say I have enjoyed it, but I can't say I've hated it either :)

What have I been doing with all of the (sudden) free time? Oh, you know...Going out of my mind. Seriously. I think I'm losing it LoL

Ok. So maybe I'm not really losing my mind but it damn sure feels like it! I think I just might have a touch of cabin fever...

Since it hurts to get up off my butt to walk any distance, I have only left my house 3 times this week....Only because it was absolutely necessary (damn appointments). That means....

I've literally been cooped up with little man in the house for a week...watching the same movies over and over again because it hurts to get up and change the discs for him :( I'm so glad he is pretty much potty trained because it would suck to have to get up and down off the floor a ton of times to change him. It kills me to do it at nap/bedtime (the only time he needs them now). Actually, he almost doesn't even need one for nap now. 3 days in a row he has woken up from his nap completely dry and asking to use the toilet :) Yay!!!

Anywho. The pelvic pain obviously hasn't gotten any better since I quit work. Some days, it almost feels worse :/ To top it off, I have an awesomely not awesome heat rash right next to where the elastic on my underwear sits...Yea, it sucks. Makes moving to do anything absolutely deplorable.

But, enough of that whining....

I discovered today that the Head Start program we have little man in may not even run past November 1st, due to lack of funds caused by this damned governmental shutdown. It won't really affect us because the ex and my honey had already decided to pull him out, however it is awful to hear. One day a week with the stipulations to him being there just isn't really worth it (something all 3 of us are in agreement of). We will put him in next year.

Best thing to happen in the last week? We finally have a full name for our baby girl!!! :) We finally agreed on it yesterday. I am beyond excited and very much relieved to have finally agreed upon something.

**Sorry!! Can't tell ya what we picked...if you're friend or family, you already know...No one else needs to know the kids' names.**

Worst thing to happen this week? My honey smashed up the screen on his phone at work yesterday (hmmm...yesterday was kind of a crazy day here LoL). I'm glad we have insurance on our phones. I got him a replacement phone ordered and shipped out tonight :) Should be here later today. If not, I guess he's out of a phone until Monday.

That is pretty much my week in a nutshell. I left all the tiny frustrations out (there were way too many LoL) but a terribly uneventful week to say the least. Down to less than 30 days before little miss finally arrives!! Damn, I can't wait :)

Well, I'm going to go drink a cup of coffee and relax today since my honey is home for the weekend :) As always, have a bitchin' day and enjoy!!

Another Long Overdue Update from Yours Truly, The Mouthy Bitch

Well, it has been awhile since my last post...I know, I know...I keep doing this to you guys, my avid readers, and I apologize.

Anywho. On to why we are really here. You want to know what's been going on in our tiny part of the world, so here it is. The update you have all been anxiously awaiting :)

I have officially hit the 35 week mark in this pregnancy. 5 weeks left to go and I'm ready to call it quits LoL Not that I haven't enjoyed the luxuries of being pregnant--eating whatever I want (not that I couldn't before but now I have an excuse LoL), napping whenever the urge (and ability to do so) strikes, crying at stupid things and not needing to explain why, etc.-- but this last trimester is really kicking my ass!!

Pain, pain, and more pain :/  Not fun in the slightest way. For the record, pelvic pain is just awful and I am VERY jealous of you women who never experienced it...just saying :) It is bad enough, I had to quit my job (2 1/2 weeks earlier than planned) just for the hope there might be some relief in staying home and resting as much as possible. So far, no such luck on that front. However, it has only been a few days since I quit...We will give it a few more until I can really know.

The reality of quitting my job hit me full-force last night though. I cried. Hard. For about half an hour :/ Not because I will miss the place or the people but because I have made my own money since I was 8 years old....Now I will not be making any money and my last paycheck is going to be pathetic when I pick it up next week. We have bills to pay and while it isn't much compared to his income, mine definitely helped. Things will be ok and it will all work out but I am still a bit down and stressed about it...

I also realized last night that we have yet to buy a single diaper for this little girl. We have nothing for her in that arena. No diapers, wipes, dresser or changing table of any kind. Makes me a tiny bit sad and makes me feel a teensy bit unprepared. We have, however, had an outpouring of awesome things given to us. Clothes, blankets, bottles, spoons, a bassinet, bath gear and a nice stroller to name a few things :) I just love getting these things for her!! All the outfits are adorable and I can't wait to put them on her!

While we have picked a first name for our little darling, we are having a very hard time choosing a middle name for her. 5 weeks left!! We need to get on this (though I will admit, I think I might be the hold up on this one ) LoL

We had a bit of a scare a few weeks back when my sissy ended up at the hospital having contractions at 24 weeks. Doctors got it all under control and her and her daughter (I'm so excited for another niece!!) are doing just fine. Good and healthy and she is taking it easy until that baby girl gets here :) The worst part about it all? The fact that she lives so far away and I couldn't be there for/with her :/ It sucked.

In slightly related news...The ex had her daughter Saturday morning. A little early but they are both good and healthy. Little man is officially a big brother!! It is still in the air over whether or not he fully grasps the concept but we will soon see. He has seen her once so far seeing as we have had him since she went into labor a few days ago...Next week when she has him will be the real test ;)

Oh!! Did I mention that Little Man is finally in preschool (only one day a week for now) and that he is almost completely potty trained? Oh, I didn't?? Well he most certainly is on both accounts. The best thing about him being in preschool now? The fact that we get to have him exactly half the time :) One week on and one week off rotation. It is gonna be interesting but it should be fun!!

For now, that is all. I'm tired and sore and should take my butt to bed. Thanks for reading!! Leave some feedback (or not it's your call LoL).

As always, have a bitchin' day and enjoy!! :)

So...It Has Been Awhile....

It has been roughly nine months since my last post here (a little less, I think, for my other blog). A lot has happened in that span of time--how sad it would be if nothing were new! While I've had plenty to rant about over the last few months, I've done something I don't usually do...I've simply kept my big mouth shut. However, the things I have to share now are not of the ranting nature ;)

So, I will start with the beginning of the new year (since that's when all the good stuff comes in hehehe). As of January 4th my honey's divorce is FINAL!! While he didn't get everything he was going for it is a relief to be done with it all and the ex is even being pretty awesome lately about things with Lil Man and has quit her mind games with my honey.

About two weeks after the divorce was final, we picked a date for our wedding!! Super exciting, in my book anyhow ;) We will be Mr. and Mrs. not too long after this time next summer. I have already started ordering things for the wedding and have a terrific support system for the planning. Plus the venue is awesome and VERY reasonably priced.

We welcomed a niece in February and found out about a week later that we are expecting as well!!! My first little bundle of joy (and his second, obviously LoL) and I couldn't be happier. Not one teeny little bit. Right now, I am just over 15 weeks and so very excited to find out what we are having in a few weeks.

Right after we found out we are expecting a baby, my wonderful sissy informed me she will be expecting her second baby about a month after ours meets the world <3 I couldn't be more excited about the addition!! I just wish she were closer and not half a country away from me LoL

After the news that we were expecting, the joy just spread like wild fire!!! I have SO many friends who are expecting right now. Many of them are expecting their first (and several of them have been trying for a very long time--yay that it finally happened guys!!!) while a few are on their second pregnancies :) So many babies in so little time....

Did I forget to mention that the ex is due a month before me?? She is. Before the question is even asked, the answer is: no, my honey is not the daddy to that one :) But, this means that Lil Man will be a big brother to two new babies (one in each home) in such a short time...exciting and I'm sure a bit overwhelming for the little guy but I'm sure he will handle it like a champ :)

I know that there HAS to be more in there, is about time I take my butt to bed. Me and the little one need to get some much :)

As always, thanks for reading and have a bitchin' day!!
