Fuzzy brain

So with Curtis gone in Texas, things are a little crazy here. I have my father in law thank god, he has been a HUGE lifesaver for me...picking up kids and taking them places they need to go and just watching them for all the hours Ive been working. Ive had alot of overtime this last week and he has been here for me to rely on. Kids just started new sports...Chase soccer and Macey basketball. I work when their practices are so Im no help to get them were they need to go, but you would think I could be organized enough to help my FIL get them were they need to go. Last night I let Mace go to a rock climbing event with a friend, well guess what.. she had her very first basketball practice and we missed it because I spaced it. Its even written on my calender and still I cant remember it. So now she doesnt get to play much in the game on saturday...totally my fault. I feel so bad that she is going to have to sit the bench most of the game. Theres nothing I can do about it now, but I do need to remember to remember to look at the calender everyday or something...lol. My mind just has so many things going around in it right now, I cant remember everything and I have a bad memory as it is, so now its a train wreck!! Hope it gets better after baby is here, but I doubt it...

Are we ready??

I cant believe that in 2 weeks I will have a new baby...seems crazy to me that its already here. This pregnancy has gone by really fast and its been fairly easy. Dont get me wrong, I have some complaints but overall Im feeling pretty decent. Had a doctors appt. on Monday and Im measuring big... big shock!! :) Im measuring 41 weeks when I should be measuring 37 weeks. Doc says that yes it is probably a big baby but also lots of fluid, so maybe baby wont be quiet as big as we are thinking. We are taking baby 1 week early so Im kinda hoping for low 9#, maybe even high 8's?? Guess we will just have to wait and see. Had my baby shower at work on Tuesday...its so hard to buy for baby when we dont know what it is and that made me feel kinda bad for my coworkers, but I got some great stuff too. Lots of diapers, wipes, baby bath, lotions, oils, a baby bath, a diaper geanie, blankets, bibs and burp cloths, hooded towels, washcloths, cute little duckys, a small amount of neutral clothing and 3 diaper bags! lol..yes three. I really do love one of them tho and plan on using that one for the most part, I figure the others can be used here and there too. Ive bought some boy and some girl stuff, so I think im pretty set for when the baby first arrives...I know I will have some shopping to do after babys here, but I have enough to last me for a week or so to get myself healing, then I can go and buy more clothes. I love feeling the baby move and being that this is my last pregnancy I am enjoying all the moments. I love laying down and just keeping my hand on my belly and feeling the movements...they are not strong kicks and punchs anymore like they were, they are just the baby rolling and arms and legs and butt pushing out on my belly. Such a great feeling....2 more weeks!!

Valentines day...

So Curtis and I went to a resturant called Cowboy Dinner Tree last night with some friends, it was a Valentines present early because I have to work on V day...he thought of it all himself and it was so much fun. We have wanted to go to this place for a long long time, but it is out in the middle of nowhere (Christmas Valley) in Lake County...its an 1 1/2 drive, so needless to say it takes a little planning. So this place has no electricity, really...they run everything off a generator! It is a little rinky dink wooden shack, I guess thats what I would call it. I think Scott said it looks like someone would be selling meth out of it...lol. There was a silly wooden horse and cow that the boys had fun "roping" before we went in to dinner. Its pretty cool tho...nothing matches inside, its got alot of older cowboy stuff in it, and a bunch of different tables and chairs, even diffent plates...I saw a plate there that my mom had when I was a kid. So funny. Our drink choices were pink lemonaide, iced tea or water in HUGE mason jars. None of us needed a refill, thats how big they were. First was the salad of course, then the rolls and a huge bowl of beans. Yummy those beans and rolls were soooo good! Some sort of black bean and northern bean mixture. Then came the meal of either Chicken or Tri-tip with a baked potato...oh my goodness those things were huge!!!! My chicken honest to god was a whole chicken...Im talking like take the turkey out of the oven type of chicken...obviously smaller than a turkey, but still...I ate one breast...I still have another breast, the legs, the wings, etc. You get the drift im sure. Tri-tip was huge also... I dont know what i would compair it to, a small boulder maybe! lol...it was huge. I think Curtis ate maybe half..maybe. And we all know my hubby can eat. :) Last was the desert...berrys and cream on shortcake...so good. Wow this place was so amazing, great food and a fun atmosephere. I loved it...the drive home is not so much fun, cuz your so full all you wanna do is sleep after! In fact thats what Scott and Alishia got to do, I of course was the DD. Part of the fun of being pregnant...Curtis was a good sport tho and stayed up with me so I could talk his ear off. :) What a good husband I have.

34 weeks...

Well I am now 34 weeks and have only 5 weeks to go. Seems like such a short amount of time. I feel alittle out of sorts because I dont have a room for the baby. It is fine really, I want the baby in my room for the first 2 or 3 months, but I have baby stuff around the house and no where to put it. When we find out if its boy or girl then I can start rearranging things and figuring out where the baby is gonna sleep when its out of our room,until then I guess stuff is just gonna be all over..lol.
I am getting really excited to have the baby...cant get my mind around what this 3rd child will look like. Macey was so dark haired and Chase was blonde blonde...so I wonder what this childs hair will be-ive got good heartburn, so im fairly certain it will have hair! Mace and Chase look so much alike now its hard to picture a 3rd child looking like them, but then again its hard to picture what the baby will look like if it doesnt look like them. Is that even possible I wonder? Im just really excited to get to know my 3rd and last child.
Pregnancy is going pretty good, its gone really fast this time and Im feeling pretty decent so far which is pretty good I think since I have such a short time left. Its gonna be exciting to get to know this childs personality and characteristics cause lord knows my other two are completely different from each other!
