We ended up locking Rosa out of the bedroom last night. For whatever reason, she has been walking on us, we throw her off the bed, she hops back up in one minute, and we play the game all night - making it an unrestful night for all of us. I tried to play with her a little last night, gave her some cat nip..... but at 3:00am sometime she decided it was time to take a trek on her Moms! I think it doesn't help me getting up to pee so many times a night....so she thinks its time to play? If we lock one out, we have to lock the other out... so about 5am Clover is screaming to come in.....We never heard a peep from Rosa to come back in. We let Clover come back in..... she played in the room with whatever she could find and was fine until I got up about 7:30am.
Last night I had the best all natural beef hotdog (hemplers) with no nitrates, etc. IT WAS FREAKIN AWESOME! I tried some smartdogs....I think they were tofu dogs? maybe turkey? they were disgusting even TRYING to disguise them with chili. Well, so I had a chili dog for dinner last night.... and am guessing Chuck doesn't like chili so much......I could not get comfortable in any position....we even went shopping for a little bit and still was miserable. I took a gas-x and a tum..... and finally fell asleep last night. Woke to major, major...magical music! YEAH!! :) We celebrate that around here....let me tell you. (maybe TMI for some but oh well) :)
I am beginning to notice it is getting harder and harder to bend down.....and not have the gumption to get off the ground. I need to realize I can't bend/stretch/maneuver like I used too....
Yesterday was K's niece/nephew (twins) 2nd birthday! We're going for a celebration today for them and Amelia who will be turning 6 on the 28th! It is always fun to hang with the family! :)
Tomorrow we'll go and pick up Madison and we're going to have a play date! :) we'll see what she feels up to doing....... we have a few fun ideas!
K's dad called us on Monday night and left us a message...... it stated "K, this is dad, I was in Everett and a lady hit me...I need you to come pick me up.... (lots of police scanner background noise) (dad asking police where at?) "I'll be at the denny's on Pacific way" thank you. SHEESH. We'd been out at my cousins for a get together of a family member that was in town.... and get home about 10 minutes after this message. My first instinct was to call Denny's on Pacific Way....so we did and they asked around...no dad. My dad then tries to tell us how to get to the Denny's and we then realize we're not being able to keep them in our heads as we just want to get going.... he suggests taking his GPS - GREAT! We get in the car...... K decides to call her step mom just in case someone else is already on their way....we really don't want to make the trek if someone is already picking him up. Someone was already on their way.....we turned around and came home. About 10 minutes after being home... Denny's was calling us. It was K's dad. He had just gotten dropped off there. (HE HAS NO CELL PHONE!!!!!!!!) Ends up....... a lady was getting on the freeway in Everett..... hit ice... Dad was in the middle lane.....the lady hit him went flying one direction and sent Dad flying another direction where he spun a few times then hit a concrete barrier. NO ONE WAS HURT and NO ONE ELSE WAS INVOLVED!!!!!!!! can you believe it!? His truck is totaled and he's using our truck for now..... He hasn't been sore, wasn't hurt or anything. We're glad everyone came out safe and not hurt!
This coming weekend we're hosting the "Girls Day Out" at our house! :) Our theme it "Cinco De Mayo Gay Bingo" with gay really having nothing to do with it....LOL Our initial thought was to do Gay Bingo in Seattle but I just don't handle the "party" scene all that well....and decided it'd probably send me over the edge....... so we'd make our own "safe" gay bingo at home!! I think we're going to have a taco bar and some homemade tamales .... mmmm. We'll also do a little celebration of Ryan and her 30th birthday on the 24th! (you're getting old!!)
On the pregnancy side of things....... I am 23 weeks today. It is crazy that we're half way through March... and come April I will have less than 100 days to go. We start birthing classes at the end of April that will go through the beginning of June. I've been feeling great. I did a pre-natal swimming class last Tuesday in Anacortes and will probably do it again this week. I need to start doing some walking. I also have a call into a dance instructor whom I heard through the swimming class that does prenatal yoga......I'm crossing my fingers. I really like the yoga. I may just be able to do a class here in Burlington and just amend it to be what I can do..... it relaxes me like nothing else. :) I felt hiccups for the first time this week..... it felt like my butt was twitching. LOL It hiccuped from the front to back it really was weird. I've been feeling Chuck kick a LOT more often too. He actually woke me up for the first time this morning.....
K and I are going to head to Coulee in April to check things out and chill out for a bit. It will probably be one of our last trips before the baby.... we may be able to go in June... we'll see. K will make the trek late April with Dad to go over and discuss them putting in new water lines. (They have had to send us notices since we bought the place that the arsenic levels were too high) and I think the health department is now cracking down on them. We're crossing, hoping, that if they replace the water that they do the sewer too. That would make our options for Coulee SKY ROCKET. (right now we can only remodel what we have - not tear down because our septic isn't to code...it IS grandfathered in... but not to code) We really don't care on the money side of the things..... we'll make it work - BUT this would really help our property values. The hard part is right now most people are strapped a little bit more for money and so paying quite a bit out each more per month for these things to happen... we'll see how the city council meeting goes. :) we at least know 4 houses that want to partake....... one being mom and dad!! :)
I'm getting excited for Life Is Good. I had such a hard time transitioning back to real life last time......really missed it..... so am really trying to prepare myself. It looks like I'll be getting a ride from a local friend that is coming from my area for the first time with her family (including a new baby!!) and then K will come down on Saturday to hang out for a day or 2... and then we'll drive back together. We can't both be off work......it just can't happen anymore. (the birth will be an exception and then she's only taking 2-3 weeks off)
K's up now so I gotta go and read the paper and eat my banana.
