A Day In the Life of Me

Well, no more waiting...

So, I am most definitely not pregnant this month. I'm happy to know, a bit disappointed, but at least I know for sure now. There is always next month to try and I know that it is all in the Lord's hands.

We got a call this morning around 8:45 from Jay's mom saying that his Grandmother had passed away this morning. Any and all prayers for his family at this time would be greatly appreciated.

Jay went to churh and I stayed home with the kids because Maddy had a fever and was constantly coughing last night. She slept until almost 11:00 this morning, so I'm glad that we didn't wake her up to go to church. She is acting fine now and has hardly coughed at all this morning and no longer has a fever.

Anyway, I just wanted to update everyone. I've gotta go change a stinky diaper... peeeeew!

The unknown...

The unknown is really what kills me. I hate not knowing! It feels like I am in limbo right now about a couple things. As many of you know we are trying for baby number 3. I am supposed to start my period on the 27th, but I FEEL pregnant. Tired all the time, hungry more than usual, ornery (blushing in shame)... but I am easily pursuaded to think I am pregnant when I'm really not. So, I have to wait 5 days to see if I am or not and I just want to KNOW!

The other big unknown is Jay's job... not going to go into detail now, and no worries because he still has a job. Part of this for me is not liking change. I'm a big ole baby when it comes to big changes like a job. His grandmother is also looking like she won't be with us for too much longer. We all went and visited her last night and it was hard for me. I got to know her in the last couple years that she has lived here and she just was not herself. After I gave her a kiss as we were leaving she stopped me from just leaving as fast as I could and looked into my eyes... trying to soak it in, it felt like... like she was saying, I love you and always will. I had to fight the tears from springing into my eyes and just tell her I loved her too. It is amazing to me the connection and love I feel for this amazing woman. I know I'm not a blood relative to her... just through marriage, but I truly feel like she is my own grandma. I'm so glad I have gotten to spend the time to get to know her and love her. I would love to figure out a way to name a daughter after her in some way.

I don't really know how to end now, but it felt good to get my feelings down and out in the open, so thanks for letting me do that. :)

Guilty pleasures!

So, this morning I woke up with a bit of a headache and instead of suffering through it for a few hours like I usually do, I grabbed a cold can of my favorite caffeinated beverage... diet Dr Pepper and sipped it as I read Lifetime Moments and checked my email. My headache subsided and I did get some housework done. Then around 1:00 my friend/co-worker Kari Marie came over to scrapbook with me. I made 2 birthday cards and a name tag thing for work and hit a wall in creativity. But, my kids were really good and it was fun to chat away with her and scrapbook! Then for dinner I made sausage and french toast out of some home made bread I made yesterday (oatmeal molasses bread... if you want the recipe, let me know). It was soooo good! After we put the kids in bed Jay made a fire in the fireplace (first time since we've lived here!) and that got me in the mood for chocolate chip cookies. So, of course, I made some. So, I got to eat warm chocolate chip cookies and cold milk in front of a cozy fireplace and read a book I got from the library. What a night! Oh, and I was in the mood for Mary Higgins Clark, so I'm reading Pretend You Don't See Her which is pretty good so far and I'm about halfway through. I just have to add that life is GOOD! A day full of guilty pleasures for me! I hope your day was half as good as mine. ;)
