Good morning ladies! Time for another day!

I'm taking the girls swimming at my in-laws after we get a few chores done. Picnic lunch there then swim some more! We are so excited!

Anne, Nice to see you last night! No word on Morris yet. She went in Saturday for a Sunday induction. We're all anxious to hear from her!

Well, Anne, I posted wrong! Oops! The induction was Sunday and you'll see details in Morris's post now.

I am happy to report the scale is down a pound! Why does one little pound make such a difference??!?!?!

We're off for the pool - where is everybody?!
Hope you all are having a good day.
Stephanie, Is that munchkin movin' around more today?

Good morning everyone!! Where is everyone?

Kate--Yes, the little one started moving a little more last night. And he's been active this morning, so I'm happy. Sounds like you have a really fun day planned! I have to clean house because I might be having company tomorrow. This afternoon I'm meeting my minister at church to talk about a press release I'm preparing. The boys are excited about getting out of the neighborhood. I haven't been taking them many places because of the terrible gas prices.

Hope everyone else has a fun day planned!!! :)

Good Morning!

Kate have fun at the pool! Our pool is being plastered this weekend so next week we will be swimming.

Stephanie, I'm glad you felt your little guy move:-) I hate cleaning the house. I think what I hate is that while I'm cleaning my kids are destroying another room;-)

My sister is coming over today. I am going to watch her kids while she goes to the doctor. She has to do the glucose test today. My boys are so excited to play with their cousins. They won't see them until after the 4th of July b/c they are leaving on vacation for 3 weeks. I would go crazy if we were gone for 3 weeks I am such a homebody.

I think I am going to go and bake the muffins Melanie posted about. I will check back later.

Kate~enjoy swimming today!

Candra~howdy!

Stephanie~glad he's moving more now. I think it's totally normal for them to have days of less movement. they can get tired like we do and just rest more than other days. : )

I am so busy today. I don't know why I do this to myself. LOL I got up and packed my closet and drawers. I then decided I'd get my run out of the way and go figure no pain today at all. I was happy to get 4 miles in. I decided to mow today instead of tomorrow since tomorrow is Hunter's first day of no school and we might go swimming. I am half way done now and decided to take a break. I still need to clean my bathrooms and vacuum. I really wanna take a nap. Maybe if I can get motivated to hurry up w/ the mowing I can get a nap before cleaning. Then we have karate at 6:30. I plan for tomorrow to be a relaxing day. :-)

Hi everyone!

Another difficult week, hormone-wise. I was a weepy mess last night. Dh deserves the sainthood for putting up with me. All I can say is that he is a very godly man.

The girls are on a home-school field trip today learning about pioneer life. I am obviously not with them as I do not enjoy these sorts of outings much. My MIL (bless her) took them instead. They will be learning about weaving. (Candle and rope making were the other alternatives.)

For some reason our cats have decided to make a second "toilet" for themselves behind the girls' bed, even though they have a perfectly good litter box. Sorry animal lovers, but I'm ready to make a stew out of the cats to save money and future aggrevation. The kids clean up the cr@p, but I still have to smell it. I may post this in the open forum for advice.

Kate--although my mil at times drives me crazy, it's a different familial relationship that I'm struggling with. It has been difficult for years and sucks all the energy out of me--energy I don't have anymore. I think I'm going to have to let it go, at least for a while. Dh says it's time for a break and he is not hormonal....and see? that scale went down again. It's water retention wackiness.

Stephanie--we decided not to go to our beloved family cabin (it's not a second home for us, belongs to my maiden aunt, but she is very generous with it) in the Oregon Cascades because of horrible gas prices (and the subsequent increasing costs of everything else). I'm glad to hear your baby is more active.

Candra--you have a pool. Ooooh I'd so love that. Of course, outdoor pools don't make much sense in Oregon, but I'm the type who would swim in almost any type of weather. Tell us about the muffins. MMMMMMM......

Trish--you do sound busy. That's great on the 4 mile run. I hope that tomorrow you get to relax a bit.

And I'm sure that no one missed Morris's post about her most excellent news! Congrats Morris!

Hi everyone else--I'll check back later today to see who else has posted.

Maggie
30 weeks, 3 days

Maggie--I think that's so neat that you have a family cabin. I've been telling my DH that I want us to buy a lake lot and build a small cabin on it so that we can have a special family cabin to build memories in each year and to pass on for generations. Maybe I just over-romanticize things, but I think it would be great. Have you seen the movie "Dan in Real Life"? I love the cabin in that movie.
I hope that you are feeling happier today. Hormones suck. Sorry about your cats too. Maybe today will be a better day. If not, make them outdoor kitties (can you tell, I'm not really a cat person??).

Candra--I'm totally jealous of your pool. I'd love to have a pool one day when the kiddos are older. Is it a lot of upkeep?

Trish--I envy your energy! I'm now inspired to start cleaning (I've been procrastinating all day).

Kate--BTW, I think I found your pound. :(

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Just a quick note to say hi. My realtor is being really difficult and is offended that we wouldn't go for a $30K loss on the house...even after dropping it $90K. We've never really gotten along & now things are stressed even more. I don't even know if she presented the counteroffer to perspective buyer. She's basically telling us we'd be lucky to get 1/2 of our original asking price. Would it be okay if I just strangled her? Could I pled temp insanity based on my "condition"?!?!? Anyway, pretty stressed out,...

I"m going to go for a quick run b4 it starts raining again. A big congrats to Morris & her precious new baby boy, Aiden!!!!!!!!!

Maggie, I am with you on the hormones. I have days that I cry all day. At least the third time around I know it is hormones and I am not crazy. The first two pg's my husband and I both thought I was crazy. Sorry about the cats. I'm really not a cat person so you probably don't want to hear my advice:-)

Trish, you are getting a lot done today. You will really enjoy your rest day tomorrow.

Stephanie, it gets so hot here almost everyone has a pool. Our last house we had a pool service but with this one my husband is insisting that he is going to do everything. We will see how long that lasts;-) With the new baby coming I am not doing it.

Kate, I hope you are having a great day swimming and not getting sunburned.

Melanie, I hope we haven't heard from you b/c you are signing papers to sell your house. I have my fingers crossed for you.

I did WalkingStrong today. The treadmill workout by Tracey Stahele. I thought it would be easy b/c you are only walking, so not true. I have never done lunges or squats using a treadmill and my legs were shaking. You also use light dumbells to do upperbody work. It is a great workout if you have a treadmill. I was pouring sweat at the end.

I am going to make my kids lunch and do some more laundry. Maggie I never want to see your laundry piles;-)

I feel a little better after my run. Not quite as fatiqued either. Got 2 new w/o's in the mail Kelly Coffers. Maybe I'll try one later. Step Kickboxing & regular step. :)

Looks like my elliptical delivery is postponed until NEXT Thursday now. Good thing I got some new DVDs!!!!!!!!
