How are you doing? How was your New Year? Mine was great! I was in bed by 9:30, but not before doing tons of fun things with the kiddos.
I never make resolutions. I don't know if it's because I know by Jan 15th I'll have fallen off the wagon, or if I just care too little or what. I don't have any HUGE changes I need to make, like quitting smoking or drinking or drugs. ;-) Mostly I need to focus on being healthier; exercising however I can and making healthy choices. But that's an ongoing work.
I had a very nice time with my husband while he was off from work, even though we got all of ONE project completed. :-P I was just too sick and he was buys taking care of me, the kids and the house. It's okay, there's still time for those projects. Maybe that's what I'll resolve to do in 2012; get my house projects done. :-D
The kids started back to school today, and I have to say I am so glad. They love it, they need that social interaction and stimulation of their brains. And I'm glad for the routine to be back in place, and a designated nap time. ;-) I love sleep. It seems these days I simply can't get enough of it.
All in all we're doing well. As I sit here typing I can feel the little bean moving around in my belly. I never get tired of feeling those movements!! My ultrasound is in 16 days; so excited to find out what we're having and to see if everything is healthy. Then two days after that my brother gets married!! Fun times ahead. :)
There are some days where I can't believe I'm really pregnant, and just sit in wonder that I get to experience this again. I really didn't think I'd be able to have more kiddos after Owen. So to be pregnant and feeling the baby is a dream come true. It's all so exciting! I started a wishlist on Amazon, because we have zero baby things left. I gave them all away, thinking I'd never need them again. It's so fun to think about all the tiny baby things! And once I find out the gender, the shopping will well and truly begin. :-D
Anyway, it's been a fun and full holiday season, and now I can tell I need to rest up and take it easy. I'm super dehydrated, despite my efforts to stay hydrated. I have to give blood on Thursday for routine bloodwork and I'm nervous that A) they won't be able to get a vein and B) that I'll faint again! I also start my physical therapy again this week AND have Owen's appointment with the eye specialist. So I need to be very careful to eat well, drink lots and get my rest.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Years!
