Tomorrow is the big day! My ultrasound is scheduled for 2.30. I am going to have the doctor write down the baby's sex and seal it in an envelope so that Ronnie and I can open it together this weekend. But I want to know what everyone is else is predicting, so let me know what you think. Leave a comment stating whether you think it's a boy or a girl and I'll let everyone know when we find out.
Today was the first day of the school year. I have to say it was not the worst start, but it definately was not the best. All I know is that I am utterly exhausted. I really do not know how I made it through the last class, especially since they are going to be the craziest if today is any indication. After being a lazy pregnant bum all summer, I was not ready for all the physical activity I got today so I am going to take a warm bath and then the bed is screaming my name! Have a great night!
Summer has come to an abrupt end today. Ronnie is officially working (I'm glad he was here for most of the summer.), the fam that was camping in the backyard pulled out, and I have to go to work tomorrow. Ugh.
But, the good news is that we had a fun-filled summer: I got to go to Costa Rica ("Arica" to Ethan), our house was finished, and we spent a lot of time together as a family. I don't have all my pictures uploaded, but thought I would share a couple of my favorites from this summer.
Flying his very own Elmo kite! Note: Ethan did better than Ronnie or me!
It appears as though summer is slipping through my fingers and there isn't anything I can do about it. Ethan and I have this whole week and next Monday together before I head back to school. I'm glad to start another year, but I will miss my little man tremendously. I know I'll be flying out of the parking lot as soon as I can just so I can get home and hang out with him.
So, the question is, what should we do this week? It's just us (Ronnie made it to Indiana safely this afternoon). I have a lot to do before we move...maybe I'll work on that. I also thought about going over to the house and doing pre-cleaning so I won't have to do it later. Maybe Ethan and I will do a small day trip or find the energy (or the money) to go shopping. Who knows. Either way, I plan to enjoy spending all the time I can with him.
Have a great week...especially all my teacher friends who are headed back to our own little worlds next week!
I have good news and I have bad news. Isn't that the way it always goes?
Good---the house is finished! Bad---we can't close for a few more weeks.
Good---Ronnie has a job! Bad---Ronnie has to be gone Monday through Friday.
What's the deal? Since Ronnie has been unemployed since March we are unable to provide check stubs to prove that we can pay for this house we are buying. Therefore, we cannot close. More good news...the bank and the builder are both willing to give us a few weeks for Ronnie to work and show pay stubs so we can buy the house. That was a huge blessing. So, Ronnie is going to be a truck driver again and Ethan and I get to hang out at home by ourselves. I'm just glad I go back to work soon so I don't literally have to sit at home, but can do something productive.
I have started to ramble, so I'm going to stop. I just wanted to post an update so I won't have to answer these questions a million times. If someone does have to ask it proves that they don't read my blog.:) Most of the important people read it though.
So I had my monthly checkup for the little lizard today. I was prepared to pay the portion of the bill that was due today and be broke until payday, but the lady said that the payment had already been made. I asked for clarification since I had not paid anything yet. Apparently I have a credit left from last time and I probably won't have to pay much next month either. What a huge blessing!!!
Then I was called back. It seems that my blood pressure has decided to creep up a little earlier than it did last time. The nurse checked it twice and hesitated a little before she told me it was 130/98! Ack! So now I have to try to be good and get it down before I go back next month.
Finally we were able to schedule an appointment for the big ultrasound. I have an appointment on September 1 at 2:30. I figured I would write it on here so I won't have to call the office every time to find out what time my appointment is because I have lost the paper again.
I am married to my firefighting, truck-driving, Gospel preaching sweetheart, Ronnie. I am a full time mother to my three wonderful boys, Ethan, Elijah and Ezra, and my beautiful girl, Melia. I am saved by the blood of Jesus. I used to work as a high school Spanish teacher. I enjoy spending time with my guys, baking, taking pictures and blogging.
