Alright sorry about that... hope you enjoyed the whine! I baby-sat Robert's cousin's 2 kids, 1 1/2 and about 4 months yesterday since her baby-sitter fell through. I was happy to help and they were good kids. It just wore me out. Baily was such a big helper to me. She helped me by playing with them and giving them her toys and whenever they cried she hugged them, patted them on the back and said "I'm sorry baby... it's ok." It was so sweet. She really did help me out a lot which gives me a lot of hope for when Bubba comes. Robert and I took her to the park and even though it was kinda hot (dang AZ heat!)
she had a blast. Then we went by the store, came home and I made dinner for us and for Andre's mutual project. We also helped him write down 8 recipes he needed for the activity. The rest of the evening went by pretty peacefully. I finally had about half an hour to read some of my book which is just not enough time. It's sooo good and I'm disappointed it's taking me so long to read it. I'm only about 100 pages into it but it's got me sucked in. I just honestly haven't had any free time to read it. Hopefully today I'll have more time. It's sooo good already though. I also wanna finish watching my shows I had recorded. Does anyone know of a way to put time on hold? I would really appreciate knowing how to do that.
EDIT (This is some stuff I forgot to write about and still be warned that it still goes under the TMI info file. I write about these things for possible advice and sympathy:)
I forgot to mention under my pregnancy woes that I'm sick of waking up with a wet shirt because of leakage. And those certain areas of my breastesses (I'm trying to be as tactful as possible here) hurt sooo bad! They're huge and swollen and irritated. Any fellow moms out there have any advice on how to handle this annoyance? And also, I was hoping that I had dodged the swollen feet bullet that I was hit with during Baily's pregnancy but apparently not. My feet are getting bigger by the minute. It sucked with Baily but it was during the summer so it wasn't a problem wearing size 11 flip-flops. So if you see me wearing slippers or something you know it's because I would rather wear those than size 11 tennies and because it might get chilly soon and I may not be able to wear the flip flops.
On a less gruesome note I want to mention, more for myself when I look back on this, that Alma 5 is the most amazing chapter in the BOM! I've had the opportunity to read it not only yesterday during my normal reading but a few other times for specialty reading the past month or so. WoW! If I'm ever down or feeling tempted I just need to read this chapter. Talk about changing your earthly perspective to an eternal one and really making you evaluate where you are on your eternal progress. I love it!
