Rainy days

So, it's rainy today, which is making my hair look like I stuck my finger in a light socket. :P  But, that's alright.  One of these days it'll be long again so that I can just throw it up in a ponytail and not have to worry about it. I took the baby to the doctor today so that she could get her flu shot....she's absolutely miserable. :(  Right now, she's sleeping, and hopefully she'll wake up in a good mood.  We're going to the church tonight to make some Christmas treats, so I'm looking forward to that. :)  I think it'll be fun.


Okay, so I didn't finish earlier....I have just had one hell of a day.

Baby girl is CRABBY, thanks to the shot, and will hopefully stay down for the rest of the night, but we'll have to see how it goes.  I'm hoping that she does stay asleep, because I'm exhausted.  I should be in bed myself, but I just haven't managed to get up off my ass and head that way.

I'm crampy, and irritable, and I just don't feel up to much of anything.  I have a shitload of homework that's gotta get done this week, and I have NO idea how I'm going to manage to do it all.  I haven't even started and I REALLY should have.  I am going to regret it, I just know it, but we'll have to see what happens.

Well, I suppose that I will get off here and get to bed.  It's 12:30 and I'm going to have to get up at a decent time tomorrow, because I have a list of things that HAVE to get done tomorrow. *sigh*

Stay safe and be blessed my friends, until we meet again.

Crazy days....

So today was relatively laid back, which was kind of nice.  Ava's napping, and is sadly going to have to be woken up here in a bit, because we're going out to dinner tonight with my parents and brother & sister in law, and she usually sleeps until around 6, but we're leaving around 5:30.

I made a leap today, and joined a gym.  It's a new place opening the beginning of December, and they are going to have lots of equipment and weights and stuff.  And the other cool thing is that any and all classes that they offer are included in the membership, which is fantastic.  They are going to have a Zumba class, and I CANNOT wait!  I'm really hoping that this will help give me the little bump of motivation that I need to get up off my fat butt and work some of it off.  I know that Mom will go to the Zumba classes with me, and my sis in law expressed an interest in it too.  I just want to be healthy.  I want to be able to chase Ava and run and play with her, and at this weight I can't.  So, here's to hoping that I get the motivation that I need, and that I can stay dedicated to it.  They even have a children's room, where I will be able to take Ava with me so that I can work out, if I were to need to take her.  So, that eliminates me being able to use her as an excuse!

In other news, Joe has received an awesome opportunity...he gets to go to Spain for a week.  The owners of the company that he works for are originally from there, and so he gets to go there and train for 7 days, and then when he comes back, he'll be training other people what he learns.  It's an amazing opportunity for him, and it's going to mean a raise in pay, so hopefully I'll be able to continue to stay home with Ava.

I suppose this is it for now, I need to get the diaper bag ready to go, and I have to go wake the baby up here shortly too.

Stay safe and be blessed my friends, until we meet again!

Napless days and piles of homework....

So, Ava's teething, which means that she is miserable.  It also means that she doesn't nap like normal, which equals me not being able to get anything done without being a meaner mommy and locking her up in the playpen.  She hates that thing.  Well, not really hates it, but she would much rather be out loose on the floor, but with all the crap that she can hurt herself on, I can't exactly be involved in homework with her out on the floor.  I give her plenty of toys when she's in the playpen, but she just isn't interested in any of them.  What she is interested in, however, is standing up and grabbing for the papers that I have printed out for school off my table which is next to the playpen.  I put her in there yesterday because I had to leave the room for a minute, and she grabbed the whole stack of papers off the table.  Some fell on the floor, and some fell in the playpen with her.  She was sitting down with this pile of papers on her lap....I really wish I would have had the camera handy, because it was absolutely priceless and adorable.

She's growing so fast, and she is SO smart....I am amazed more and more every day at the things that she is doing and accomplishing.  She gives me so much joy, it's unreal.  I am SO blessed to be her mommy.

I suppose I should go for now, because she's awake, and fussing....I am going to be a meaner mom though, and put her in either her car (walker thing) or the playpen, because I HAVE to get some homework done today!

Stay safe and be blessed my friends, until we meet again.

November already?!

I'm just not ready for the year to be almost over already.  It's insane.  It seems like we just welcomed this year, and here it is, freakin November already.  My baby girl is 7 months old, and crawling all over the place.  She pulls herself up on anything and everything she can grab ahold of.  We had to lower her crib mattress already, because I was afraid that she was going to fall out of the crib.  It's crazy to see how much she has grown and changed already. <3 My baby is getting WAY too big, and she's doing it way too fast.

I don't have a whole lot to say tonight, because I'm in a crappy mood, and should really be in bed, seeing as it's after midnight.  And yes, I know that we get an extra hour of sleep, but Ava didn't sleep all day and was super crabby, which means that she is likely not going to sleep through the night.

I'm going to head out for the night...hopefully I'll be able to write more tomorrow. :)

Stay safe and be blessed my friends, until we meet again.

Grrrr...... >:(

I REALLY want to post about something, but I can't. :(

Maybe I need to make this private again.  Or better yet, I could just create a new blog page.  Why can't blogger have a button that allows you to make one single post private and available to only those select people that you want to see it. :(
