Ahhhhh...summer... and 19 weeks....

What a nice feeling it was sleeping in on a Monday and feeling in no rush to do anything! I forgot how difficult it was trying to find something to watch on daytime T.V., but watching the news at noon and then the background of soap operas on as I clean is a goooood feeling! It made me realize I need to get back into my summer routine now. Last year, I was really good at finding new recipes and cooking meals all of the time when Mark came home from work. Hopefully, I can get back to that... we'll see, though.

I have heard and been reading that I am supposed to get all of my energy back now that I'm in the 5th month of pregnancy, but I keep feeling that all the energy is getting sucked out of me again, which is disappointing now that I can stay up late and don't have to go to work!

All I keep thinking about is how nice it would be to be relaxing in a pool, but really?! Pregnancy is not as cute as I thought it would be on my body! I'm over getting fat now... just over it!

Good news - 9 days and we will know if it's a girl or boy, which means LET THE SHOPPING BEGIN!!

Future Plans

I always plan. I plan WAY in advance for the future, just like our vacation that will be happening in 2014, but now might be sooner, since the prices have gone down! haha!

Well, my new plan is that I am going to learn to sew and to decorate fabulous cakes! I don't have a clue how to do either of them, but I think I'm pretty artistic and could pull it off. I think I am going to have to take some classes on this, however.

I am going to need everyone's help with this one because I know other things will come up and I'd rather do something else than learn to do those things, so someone needs to hold me accountable and continually remind me of these goals I have made. Wow, I just thought about it... I don't know if I have ever made a real goal. We will see how it goes. I am giving myself until next July or so to be enrolled in one of those classes and get going on it.

Don't let me fail my goal!!!

Still not real...





Well, now that I am "with child" you would think that I would give up on the expensive pregnancy tests. Wrong. Mark has come quite annoyed with my spending habits on these tests even now that I am 18 weeks and counting. It just doesn't seem real to me yet, aside from my growing behind and belly and arms and.... everything. We have 2 weeks until we find out if it's a girl or boy and they told me I should start feeling the baby before then.... I'm still waiting and it drives me nuts because I feel like it isn't REAL until I feel it.
