Back In The Game

OK, due to Becca's prompting...I'm back at it. (Thanks Becca)

One Big Happy Family
We're officially without a home to call our own. Living with Memaw is going pretty well. Although I was just whining to Chris about missing having a space for "me time". I took for granted all of those nights, after I put Carlee to bed, and Chris was in the office working, that I could take about an hour to get wrapped up in some crazy tv show or read a book - or, there's no room for "me time". We're all just one big happy family. I think I would like to go to a hotel by myself...just for the silence.

Baby #2
I never posted about my Dr. appt....we got to see the little heartbeat. Amazing! I was so, so relieved to see it. Chris and I both sighed (in relief) when he said there was just one. whew...

So, my next appointment is November 20, and we'll get to hear the heartbeat this time! I can't wait! Kerry (my sister) thinks we should be surprised and not find out the baby's sex early. um....I think I'll be just as surprised in January when we find out early! I have to admit that it was really, really exciting when Jenna was born. But, I just really want to know - so, I'm going to. Maybe I just won't tell anyone. (yeah right) Carlee says she wants a girl.

Night Night
I think I'll go sing Twinkle, Twinkle to my Carlee Bug - she's up way too late and is going to be a big grouch tomorrow morning when we have to drag her out of bed. I'm listening to Chris talk to her...he doesn't know I'm listening. There is not a sweeter dad in the world. Oh, she's so lucky to have such a good daddy. I know that the relationship she has with him will mold her into such a sweet young lady. We're so blessed to have him.

Ugh...I feel like crap. The good news is...a year from now I won't even remember and I'll have a sweet little baby to hang out with. It's worth it, but it's still terrible knowing that I'm going to feel the same way tomorrow.

So, I think Carlee's sore throat and snotty nose has been passed on to yours truly. Perfect timing since I have to get this entire house packed tomorrow and Saturday. Really, what I would LOVE to do, is first visit Dorie at Fort Smith Wellness for a wonderful massage then find a bed somewhere and sleep until I just can't sleep anymore. But, instead I'm going to give Carlee a bath, finish up the laundry, and clean the kitchen. Then, get up in the morning and start packing. Poor me...:)

I'm so blessed. Sometimes it's a little freeing to complain. I should be pretty darn free.

It's bath time....well, it's WAY past bath time.

Can One More Thing Happen? (At least they are good things!)

All kinds of big things going on.

Movin' out
Some really nice folks made an offer on our house last Monday - we countered and they accepted. So, now we have to be out on the 11th. Which means that we have to be out this weekend since there is NO time in the evenings for anything like moving! So, I'm packing like a wild woman every night...trying to get all of this stuff done. I'm not sure how it's going to happen - but my momma raised me to make things happen, so I'm sure it will!

Speaking of my momma...we're moving in with her while we build. Fun times! I'm actually kind of looking forward to it - in a strange sort of way. We have good talks.

We met with the lady who is drawing up the house plans tonight! So exciting!!! I feel like we're finally making a move on this house thing. It's a little intimidating, but fun!

I think I'm crazy
I've been so, so nervous about the baby the bast couple of weeks. Almost to the point of crazy. I took another pregnancy test on Sunday and the test line was dark but the other line was light - so I started freaking out and reading stuff online. Chris was at work so I put Carlee in the car and went to get another one...but I made myself turn around and come back home. I cannot be so crazy about this. It's still a struggle every day - and it's still in the back of my mind. But I'm just praying for God to give me peace and for him to protect this little precious baby.
