Well,  it was another insane day. 

This is my son and daughter.  First time I have caught her smiling on camera.  I was so worried that he would not like her or would be resentful of her, but he isn't.  He loves her so much, and he is her favorite.  She will sit with him without fussing for longer than for my husband or I.  It melts my heart ♡♡♡♡♡


Today i felt more like a human being, although i knlw every day may not go as well.  The baby was up every 2 hours last night but i went ahead and forced myself to get up and get moving and not just sit around in my pajamas until noon.  I showered while she napped in her seat, then logged on and did my reports. Stopped once in between for a feeding and then finished that.  Later in the day she had another good nap and i relaxed a bit with my book.  It seemed like she was more relaxed today than she has been. Maybe she has just been reading my anxiety with all the company but now we can both relax a bit?

This evening i ran to the office and dropped my stuff off.  Now my husband has gone to the store for a few items for the week.  He can't find where they keep the grapes. Hahahaha.  I have totally spoiled these guys around here.  But that's ok...i love them and i want to.

Tonight we will chill out and maybe play a game or watch TV. Nothing major.


On the radio this morning there is a discussion about all the things people should say instead of saying Merry Christmas so as not to offend them.   What about all of the people who want to say Merry Christmas because it is important for them? Why arent they allowed to say it but expected to be happy on behalf of everyone else?  Maybe i am offended that i can't say Merry Christmas?  How is one thing considered more important or more allowable than the other?  Ugh.


Today my boss got a call that her mother is not expected to live much longer. She has been in hospice care for quite some time now. She has had a variety of health issues for the past few years but was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in March and has been declining since then. So tomorrow morning my boss and her daughter (who also works at my office) are flying back to Michigan to be with family and hopefully to make it and see her before she passes. I feel really sad for them as they are both having a really hard time. That also puts us 2 more down at work. Today there was lots of meetings and panic because all the sudden people realize I'm really having a baby quite soon and won't be around to do all these things i normally do, and they don't know how they are going to cover everything. I don't know how they are either, really, but it is what it is. They are praying I don't have the baby for the next two weeks, as that is how long they plan to be out of town.

My son was excited to go to church tonight so I took him and we ate dinner there. After he went to his class, I went ahead and came back home. I logged on from home and did about an hour of work and then was able to putter around and put away a few things here. I'm really trying not to over do things right now. I've felt somewhat crampy this afternoon, so trying to take it easy and drink plenty of water. I'm glad I didn't stay at church.

It is already after 10 so I'm going to bed.


Tomorrow morning we go back to the doctor and have another ultrasound done, along with the regular monthly check. I guess this ultrasound is more detailed and they measure bones and look hard at all the organs. That should be neat. 

My husband is planning to talk to his parents  tomorrow about the length of their stay in December.  I had been thinking it odd that he wasn't more stressed out about it, but tonight he is feeling it.  He is running through different ways that he thinks it might go.  I don't really care how it goes...they can take it or leave it...but all the same I know it will be a stressful conversation until it is settled, so I'll be very glad when it is.  We will offer to have them stay as house guests for a week up to 8ish days and then if they ask to stay longer he is going to tell them they cannot stay in the house but that he could help them find an air bnb and they could come over some days, with the understanding that it might not be every day or all day because we have other family also and need time just for our own family to settle.  Neither of us think they will extend because they won't want to pay for it, and particularly with no promise they can come every day.

We both do feel bad about it and hope it doesn't cause a problem,  but we also are both settled on what is best for our family and what would be too much stress, etc. 


It is 7-11 day here and lots of people are talking about getting their free Slurpees.  I've never had one...are they any good?

Hardwood floors

Does anyone here have hardwood floors? If so, what do you use to mop them with?


This turned in to a movie watching kind of weekend. That rarely happens.

First: Kong. I mentioned this in my last post.

Second: Mission Impossible Rogue Nation. That was with Tom Cruise. I've never seen any of the other mission impossible movies, but this seemed to just drag on forever. I played around on my phone for most of it.

Third: Planet of the Apes.  This one my husband mostly watched. I took a 30 minute nap during this one and really couldn't say if it is good or not.


This morning we met up with a group from our Sunday class and handed out water and Popsicles in the park, along with an invitation to the Greg Laurie Harvest America event that is coming to Phoenix in a couple weeks.  It was fun.  We met some nice people and also got to visit with each other, which is hard to find time to do sometimes.

I got a Chicago dog from Sonic today. I had never had one before. I think either I did it wrong,  or they are overrated.  The pickle kept falling out when I bit it, and the bun got all soggy at the end. Weird.  Not my favorite way to eat a hotdog,  to be sure.

I wore glasses instead of contacts today so that I could take a nap at some point. I take naps with my contacts in, but I don't believe it's good for my eyes, so I planned ahead today. Wouldn't you know, I don't feel all that tired. Hah
