Where does the time go?

I can't believe how long it has been since I posted! Actually, that's not true. I totally believe it, I am on the computer everyday but since I don't need to escape from work, I don't think about updating my blog. Just look at every summer since I've started this turkey! Very, VERY few entries. Oh well...

Here is an update.

I have been sleeping late and napping a lot! This is good because baby-boy-to-be (bb2b) does not let me sleep much at night. What with the heartburn, crazy dreams, itchy skin, and sore belly, who can sleep? Other than that, I am feeling fine. bb2b is still full breech, his head is up under my ribs and his adorable little tush is down. We hope he will turn in the next 4-6 weeks but my Dr is taking a "better safe than sorry" route. We have a c-section scheduled for a couple days before my due date if he stays turned around. I am nervous, scared, apprehensive about the C but am trying to look on the bright side- no middle of the night rush to the hospital in pain! 8 weeks to go...

We took the kiddo's to Key Lime Cove. What a fabulous 24 hours! We stayed in a lovely room, swam as much as mommy and daddy could handle, ate decent food, it was great! Thanks mom and dad for the gift certificate, we love you! This is part of my master summer plan where we will do one special event each week, a field trip or mini-trip of sorts. We did it one week and not the next. Week 3 is TBD.

Brianna had a lovely 6th birthday. She started the night before with a sleepover with cousin Hannah and a visit to Chuck-E-Cheese. She had a blast on her sleep over and reportedly only got a little homesick at bedtime. (Mommy missed her a lot and even though I got a lot of cleaning and prep work done with her gone, I don't think I ever want to miss a minute of her birthday again!) Later on her birthday we arranged a gymnastics party for her and 14 of her little friends at the local gym. She LOVED that! Afterwards we had our family and closest friends back to the house for dinner from Moe's. Moe's is Brianna's favorite restaurant and is on the family's top 10 list. I highly recommend their catering!

Both kids are taking gymnastics on Mondays and swimming lessons on Tuesdays. They go to "camp" twice a week so mommy and daddy can get stuff done. We are ready to prime and paint "the barn room" so Brianna can move in there. Then we will prime and paint Brianna's pink room into something more appropriate for bb2b.

Be prepared for cop-out photo entries of all this for a while!

School's...out... for... summer!

AH! Finally I have made it to the end of the year. To the end of the craziness. To June 11!

Summer finally beckons full of painting the house, gymnastics and swimming lessons, naps, family day's, and maybe more naps. :-) The end of the summer will be marked by our last addition to the family. I couldn't be more excited for the next 10 weeks.

Now if only the weather would cooperate...

Holy Cow! Look at the time!

I just spent the better part of 2 hours reading my own blog archives!

I started looking at spring and summer of 2005 to see if I'd written down anything about my pregnancy with Grant. That would have been about the stage I'm at now and I wanted to compare.

I kept reading...
Every Post...
though spring of 2008.

At that point, I actually remembered the things that happened and they weren't as funny anymore. I should have been working... oh well.
I LOVED my trip down memory lane!

I'm sliding in... covered in chocolate... someday.

Have you heard the one about how you should go to your grave by sliding in sideways, covered in chocolate and wine instead of being perfectly preserved? That is what I want.

Mindy over at Mama Drama says it another way:

"No special care for any specific part of myself. My body is a temple and like most ancient ruins, it could use a little restoration, but it has historical value if nothing else.

As for my house....that's a wreck too."

Amen Min... Amen!
