Sick and poopy

I am happy to say that the pregnancy feels to be progressing well. How do I determine this? By my endless fatigue and sickness all day long. I have been eating at least every two hours and though I enjoy food, not that much. My husband had a dream of twin girls. Oh man, let's hope not...

This weekend was spent hanging out with good friends. The Seahawks won, and are on to the super bowl! My nausea prevents me from writing too much, but I wanted to record a couple of important matters. Logan is in the habit on his own accord of tucking in his shirts. Pretty cute. Ian calls his sister, "Ay Ay.". Ian is potty training as of last night, and today did his first business. I think he surprised himself, because he looked upset and asked me to get it out of his potty. Caylee has been his potty mentor...teaching him proper hygiene and how to put on his big boy pull ups. Pretty cool.

Living off Triscuits and Ginger Ale

It is Sunday morning, and I am spending my second day of the weekend living on the couch between intermittently getting up to accomplish a task in between waves of nausea. In my lap are a bottle of ginger ale and a box of Triscuits that the kids have been raiding throughout the day. I am a bum living off ginger ale and crackers. I do eat other stuff, but I have to convince myself. It is unnatural to eat when your stomach hurts. I am happy and excited to have a baby, but at 32 and 4 kids know I will be done. Tie me up :)

An expectant mother

The last couple of days I have been really sick and it is not with the flu. We are expecting our 4th! I found out on Thursday the 9th. We are nervous but excited. It is pretty early on, but I am already trying to function with the increasing nausea. Much love and go Seahawks!

A day of playoffs

Well, I made through my first week of work. I didn't do anything amazing, but that is okay. Pretty thankful, and glad it is the weekend. It's the NFL playoffs at our house, and so the games have been on since 1:00. I realized that since it is normally on a Sunday that I thought I was a day ahead all afternoon. When I realized that I still have a day off tomorrow i got pretty excited.

I spent the day cleaning the house, washing the car and cooking. My husband is getting over a week long head cold so I made my favorite homemade chicken noodle soup with lots of onion and garlic. My store run consisted of purchasing the garlic, and stocking up on a family supply of vitamins and Emergen C Now I am relaxing with tea and a book while the kids watch a movie in one room while football is on in the other.

I think my daughter sprained her knee when she was jumping on their new trampoline the other day. It has been a couple of days, so I think it was a delayed reaction. The poor thing can't walk,and has spent the entire day laid up on the couch with my catering to her every need including transportation around the house. It sounds magical and it probably is, but It seems that she takes after her mom in the busy dept, and is getting tired of parking it. After dinner she coerced me into a game of Go Fish. I felt so bad I couldn't say no. I hope she feels better tomorrow for her friend's birthday tomorrow afternoon.

A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera - Say Something

I wanted to post this song before I forget. I heard it on the radio this morning. An upcoming band - A Great Big Wold with Christina Aguilera called "Say Something." How many times have we felt this way in a relationship? - Tears...

LIVE ACTION: The Remix | Call of the Wildman

Its a night Live Action!

"Yiyiyiyiyi!!!! Live action!"

Tonight after having a second Monday of the week I am sitting after work in front of the fire under a pink blanket watching "Call of the Wildman." If you haven't seen it check it the heck out. The guy is crazy in a good way and hilarious to boot. He makes a living catching wild animals by hand that have invaded people's homes. At the end of a crazy encounter he always hollers and says live action!! Some of those episodes will make you cringe. My kids are major fans. Maybe one day we can see him if we ever go through Kentucky. He is a good example of how to just go for it!

I am 3 days into my new job. I love it, but am in that difficult beginning stage where you don't know what the heck you are. Doing, and I am over thinking everything trying to be a super star. At 5 I finally had to admit defeat with my project and say that I couldn't figure it out. That was hard. Going to figure it out tomorrow.

For who knows how long I have gotten a daily email of a scripture verse. I never open it and always delete. Today I decide to open it and this is what it says, "Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."- 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18, NLT - Enough said

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everybody! 4 out of 5 of us made it to midnight. It was the first time for the 2 kids. Our night was spent with Caylee making a New Year's dress out of a towel
The whole family joining in for either a Lego build session, or a game of Go Fish and Crazy Eights.
...and hanging out eating popcorn, watching, "Cirque De Soleil - Worlds Away," and watching the ball drop.
