Jude Benoni [Jul. 27th, 2013|08:08 pm]
Jude Benoni, 15 weeks. My sister-in-law miscarried and had to deliver yesterday. This is the most terrible thing for her. I hope that she is going to be okay. We were actually up there when they found out, but I feel like I should go back and be there for her. I don't know though if that would be best, plus it would be really hard to get away from work. She is not answering her phone.
I also hope that the kids are being helpful and not to sad themselves. They are old enough to understand and be upset, and I hope empathetic.
I am very sad.

i have been in a foul mood all day for no real reason. If the child does not go to bed soon I think I am going to have a nervous break down. Jonny got off work early and was home for a little while, but now he has gone to hang out with some friends. The child took to long of a nap and now I can not get him to stay in bed. He also made so many messes today that I was afraid I was going to strangle him. He is up again...

I hate my house being dirty. It seems that the days I can't stand it the most are the days tht he makes the most messes. He poured all the dog food on the kitchen floor and then poured all the dog water on top of it. While taking a bath he poured a good 6 cups of water all over the rug. He is up again...

He is to smart and knows how to play me. "Hold baby" he keeps saying. Oh I am a horrible mother, I just want him t o stay in the damn bed!!!

stupid rain [Jul. 3rd, 2013|03:30 pm]
We had great plans to go to the pool all day and then drive to Opelika for fireworks tonight, but that rain has killed all the plans. Nate has been taking a very long nap, and I have been reading Game of Thrones. Some much for exercise...

Monday, July 1. First day of the week and first day of the month. Good time to start setting goals. So here goes. I want to loose 12 lbs. by the end of the month. I have never set an actual goal before, I have just arbitrarily tried to "eat better" and "work out". but now I have an actual goal. I started off horribly by eating muffins for breakfast and having a cc cookie with lunch. But then I went on a run, so that has to even out, right?
Really I just want to be in better shape. I have this desire to be in the best shape ever before I give it all up for a second child. I was in the best shape thus far right before I got pregnant with Nate. I am almost in that shape now, not counting the C-section scar and the stretch marks which will never go away. I want to surpass that.
Speaking of second child, I have gone round and round about it. (By the way, if anyone still reads this thing, don't tell Jonny my thoughts) I have finally come to the horrible conclusion that maybe I only want one for Nate and Jonny. Yes, babies are cute and cuddly, but I already have one. Another one would just be for Nate's benefit of not being an only child.
Then again I can't decide if I am just telling myself this so that I won't feel guilty about wanting another one when I already have Nate?
The cousin is coming around Christmas, and sister-in-law is telling me to get busy. Nate LOVED having the cousins here, but they are older, a baby would be a whole different story.
Ugh, I just don't know. We started trying for Nate on my Birthday, so I thought maybe we could start trying for number 2 on Jonny's birthday? I still am not totally sold though. Jonny says he wants another. But can we afford it? We have to pay for Jonny and Nate to go to school. and we would have to fix up that 2nd bedroom and everything. Well, we shall see.

Summer Time! Well almost... Two more days of work, but the kids are gone. I have very unrealistic goals to make this the best summer ever, mostly for Nate. I am so excited that he got into preschool next year! Can't wait to go to White Water a week from today. I hope that Nate likes it. Last summer he loved the pool, but he did not like it when water fell on his head. Then all the following week I got the niece and nephew, going to be super fun!

Jonny got out of bed at 8am to go to the bathroom. Then he came back to bed. In doing this he woke up Nate, who then went potty himself and started leaking all over the bed. Jonny lay there. So I was covered and started cursing. Jonny lay there. I got up, Jonny lay there. I changed my clothes. Jonny lay there. I stripped Nate. Jonny lay there.
So now my side of the bed is drenched and Jonny is fast asleep on his side. I have been up for and hour and a half with a clingy baby who now has bananas in his hair and is stinky. Not to mention when he does get up I'm going to have to change and wash to sheets. I'm in a bit of a bad mood.
Usually Jonny stays up all late either working or on the comp, so I can see why he wants to sleep late, but he fell asleep on the couch last night while I dealt with the kid, and then we went to bed at the same Time!!!
Don't get me wrong, he usually pulls his weight and I love him, but I am fed up this morning.
Better go change the stinky.

Jonny has slept until past noon every day this year. Yesterday he did not get up until 1:20, when I went into the bedroom and informed him that he had to get up and help me so that I could finish making lunch. It is really starting to bug me, but I don't want to tell him that so I am complaining about it on here because he does not read it.
Meanwhile Nate is a mess from breakfast and I am not doing anything to remedy it. I thought it would be more convienient when he could feed himself, but not so. He makes such a mess of himself that it is 3 times the work. And he does not like to be cleaned. And he refuses to be fed. He won't eat any of the jarred baby food anymore, except for the apple and pearsauce, which he wants to feed himself. I let him try last night. He got about 1/10 of it into his mouth with a spoon, which I guess is progress, and I know he has to practice in order to learn, I just wish it was not so messy.
So far so good with the New Year's walking resolution. I found a website (dailymile.com) that lets you track and map your walks. It is really cool, and i think it will help me stay on track. I have already walked 8 miles this year! I am sure that this makes Molly happy. We lost her leash somehow after Pine Mountain, along with the pinch collar. So we had to resort to the old leash. It is pink and Jonny hates to walk with it. I think this is ridiculous. Of course I resorted to tying the leash around my waist yesterday because she was pulling so much and I didn't want to deal with her. It worked really well. I'll prolly do it again.
So dog is whining to be let out, and baby is crawling into dog's dirty crate, (ew, now there is dog hair stuck to the banana stuck to his head)so duty calls!

Chicken pops [Aug. 19th, 2011|06:11 pm]
Baby has the chicken pox. He got a fever last night and a couple spots this morning. We went to the doctor who confirmed it and then ushered us out the back door so that we would not infect anybody else. I think he must have picked it up at the lll meeting that we went to. I called to warn them, and I left a message in the church office to warn all the other little people he knows. It stinks that he got them. There is a vaccine that kids generally get at 12 months, to bad he got them early. We were going to head north and visit family this weekend, but I guess putting a kid with chicken pox in a hot carseat for 3 hours might be child abuse... so we won't be doing that.

Poor ferrets. They are so neglected nowadays. I spend a minute or two with them her and there, but their room/cage has not been properly cleaned since Nate was born. Hastily cleaned and poo removed yes, but it really needs a good scrub down. My goal is to do that tomorrow mid-morning while Nate and Jonny nap.
Nate got a good scrub down today. He loves the bath. He kicks his feet and tries to swim. He is sleeping in my lap at the moment. It is hard to type and hold a baby at the same time.
We walked all around town yesterday. It was good to be out, but we should not go in the heat of the day again. I was so paranoid about Nate getting sunburnt i almost smothered him with a hat. Plus Molly almost had a heat stroke I think, we had to make a detour down to the river 3 times so she could cool off. I want to go camping again, but I'm worried about the heat. I guess it would not be so bad under trees and at night.
Made it back to church today. Nate was cute in his church outfit, but his shirt kept riding up. plus he apparently decided to scream in the nursery. He's been a bit of a grumpus all day, i think he may have had a bit of a tummy ache. I'm so used to him being happy all the time, it is weird when he is in a bad mood. He had a "mommy needs to hold me" day. Thus why the house is still a mess. I can type one handed, but it is impossible to do laundry one handed... But that is ok, i'd rather hold him any day.
I'm supposed to have new students, but they keep cancelling and playing phone tag. I hope it works out. I could use more students. plus I already made lesson plans and I hate to have done work for nothing.
