Today has been a relaxed day. I didn’t jump out of bed, instead, much like a turtle on its back I awkwardly rolled out. I remembered to feed the dog and myself and even managed to get dressed in good time. Gold star in my book.
I even washed my face!
And put on a little makeup. Gotta look good for my man after a couple of weeks of not looking so hot…
To be honest, I’ve been feeling a little stressed out lately. I think it’s all starting to finally sink in. We weren’t able to have the “financial assistance” a baby shower brings. That may sound vain but seriously ladies, don’t ever take a baby shower for granted. I thought for sure I’d have one at some point and therefore didn’t plan for the opposite. Reality is we told people we were pregnant when I was 4 months along and then moved to another state where we only knew 2 people when I was 5 months along, I’m now almost 8 months pregnant and haven’t bought a stitch of clothing (Okay, I did buy a couple pair of baby socks) because right now money is tight. If you’re counting on the help in the form of gifts from friends, this is the stupidest plan to have. On the up side, I was blessed with the knowledge that my dad wants to buy the car seat. Yay! I have been given some onesies from my sister from when my nephew was born and my aunt got us some long sleeved onesies and a couple of swaddling blankets as well. We’ll get the stuff we need and I should just stop worrying about it and trust God to help us out where we need it.
Lots going on in the months to come. My Grandma and Aunt from Washington are coming to visit this weekend, Thanksgiving is the 26th and we might be staying in or heading out for it, I might get to see my brother in December, my Grandma, Aunt and mom are planing to visit in December while my mom is there for my Aunt’s birthday, then there’s Christmas where we wont be straying to far from home, then my mom will come and stay with us until after our baby is born, then my dad and youngest brother will come get my mom and stay for a couple days before heading home. And then or course there is all the Midwife visits, birth classes, shopping trips and unscheduled outings in between! Not to mention room for life to happen :)
