I had my first official OB appointment yesterday. Did the whole weigh in thing (can I just say, I want to be a lot more careful about my eating habits this time around? Don't really want to gain 50 lbs. again.), got a fun packet o' info, watched a video, did bloodwork... and got to hear the little one's heartbeat.
I just love hearing that... it's so cool to hear that little heartbeat and know that a person is in there.
I'm definitely getting excited
about this whole thing now.
Emerson and other things
have been keeping me so busy. I'm feeling very discontent with life, in some ways. Just wishing for a normal routine, a normal day. I'm having to learn to accept that a "normal day
" for us might not mean a regular schedule or me getting to accomplish all that I wanted to. It's hard to let go of that concept, though.
I really just have a desire to control things.
Speaking of, I have on and off done Flylady,
but often get frustrated with it because of all the dang useless emails. I mean, dude. I have enough things in my inbox to keep me busy besides having to wade through meaningless & sappy testimonials. (Sorry for those of you who enjoy them. I personally am just annoyed by them.)
So.... in some tiny attempt to get my house at least into a semblance of order, I'm thinking of checking out the "Sidetracked Home Executives" book from the library. I requested a copy today, as a matter of fact. It's the system that Flylady began with, but has a few differences, which I hope will work for me.
I just need some
sort of system to keep this house in running order.
I got to visit with my sweet friend Michelle yesterday. She and her two cutie kids watched Em for me while I was at the doctor's appt. Her house is just calming to me. I feel like I'm at HOME
when I'm there.
I miss the days when we literally lived next door to each other and had a stone path between our porches.
She had a fun packet of little prizes for me, including a scarf she crocheted for Emerson. HOW CUTE CAN THAT BE??!!
I will definitely be taking pics of her in it later today and post them.
And finally- we will be getting some cooler
weather this weekend, so maybe Em will even have the need
to wear it!
Alright, peeps. That's enough rambling, eh?
