that's the only word i have to describe myself right now.

this morning i woke up with a really bad sore throat. as the day has progressed, my eyes are watery, my nose runny yet stopped up, my throat clogged, my head pounding.

i could be on the verge of...well...not death, but something bad!

i have no sick days to use! i can't call in to work!

i know when i wake up in the morning, i'll be coughing up stuff even your little boys would be scared of!

i tried to take a nap, but i woke up feeling worse than before.

jacob is sleeping soundly right now.

i should be working, but i have no desire.

i should take my 5-month picture, but i have no energy to go get my camera AND change clothes.

i should post pictures of our house with all the sheet rock done, cabinets delivered, doors on, right windows in, ready to paint, but i don't have the patience to wait for the pictures to load.

i would love to see if the president's cup is over, but i don't have the will to turn on the tv.

wow! talk about woe is me!

happier things next time. stay tuned.

things they say

i know most of you have heard this story, but i wanted to write it down and read it myself. i need a good laugh...or cry at this point.

the past few days have been a struggle for me. anyway, not the point.

the other day, i woke jacob up for "school". he's been sick.

jacob: "mommy, i can't see."

me: "what's wrong baby?"

jacob: "my eyes are broken!"

i could hardly contain the tears for the laughter. his eyes were stuck together from all the sleepy stuff in them.

it took a good 5 minutes of rubbing with a warm cloth to get them open.

happy birthday, kylah!

happy birthday to my friend!

i only wish we would be seeing each other today.

i guess i'll have to be okay with getting to spend this past weekend with you!

it was so much fun to hang out and...well, just hang out!

i love you, and i hope you have a wonderful day!

happy birthday!

today, one of my students told me she was going to make cookies today.

naturally, i asked her if she would be bringing me any?
(i wouldn't really eat them. you never know what's in them.)

she said of course she would.

i only wish i could eat them.

it would be perfect if they were like chocolate chip with nuts or something.


now, if she does bring them, i'll have act so excited and then secretly discard them!

i want cookies!!

still a boy

we had our official sonogram yesterday. we're still having a boy.

my parents came down. my dad got to see his first sonogram ever! jacob got to see his little brother. he was so excited.

i had a stupid contraction during the thing! i'm sitting there and the technician says, "you're having a contraction. do you feel it?"

uh, yea. i feel it. it feels like my insides are turning inside out.

she said it was a braxton hicks contraction. that's the first one of those i've ever had. i hope they don't continue.

jenny, i don't know how you handle it these days.


on a side note...i'm having major anxiety about this retreat this weekend. i'm going to have to leave my baby for 2 nights which means i won't see him for an entire day! this has never happened before. not to mention, i won't be seeing my husband either.

i'm just hoping it's an action-packed weekend and i can keep my focus where it should be!


another note...i'm sick! sick! sick! sneezing, sniffling, runny nose. my whole house and family is infected. no one should come around us for a while.

i am so proud of you, hun!
i love you so much!

my enemy

so yesterday i had a doctor's appointment. it was my 4-month appointment. no big deal, right?


that is until i walk in the office and 30 seconds later i'm standing on a scale facing the reality that unless i eat salads for the next 4 1/2 months, i don't think my goal of gaining only 20-25 pounds is going to happen.

i hate scales. hate. hate. hate.

did i mention i hate scales?

in my defense, i did have to switch from morning appointments to afternoon appointments, but still...come on!

i almost cried when i saw the scale.

i asked the nurse, "how could this be? i'm still wearing my REGULAR jeans! i don't feel like i've gained 7 (yes i said 7) pounds in one month!"

that brings my total to 10. 10! that means, i've gained half the weight i wanted to and i'm only halfway. logically, you think that would be right. not to this pregnant woman.

i know there will be bigger numbers put up than 7 in the next few months!

why can't i be one of those women who gain like 15 pounds or less their entire pregnancy?? (like two of my friends i know. you know who you are!)

where does the time go?

today, we discovered our little boy can now sing twinkle, twinkle, little star and old macdonald had a farm.

he's growing up in "school", as he calls it, and i don't even get to see it!

i can't wait until next summer so i can spend every day with him!

so it happened...

yesterday, i'm standing outside the dressing room in ross while jerry is trying on pants and the dressing room attendant says to me...

"when is your baby due?"
(sad in of itself that she could ask that because it's so obvious.)

me: "february 6"
(i never leave out the 6 part.)

her: "so how far are you?"

me: "4 months."

her: (she thinks for a second.) "so you have FIVE months left?"

me: "yes."

her: "it's because you're slim that you're showing so much so early, huh?"

me: "yea, that's it."

what the heck?? do people have no scruples? or are they just stupid?

for my friend

if you haven't been following the p.s. saga, go here and catch up, then come back.

my dear friend,

i miss you so much. i haven't seen you in like 2 least. this is crazy. it was not supposed to be this way. we were supposed to live next to each other and see each other everyday. we were getting so close with our house being done and then your HUSBAND had to move you away from everyone! ;)

i know someday you will return and it will be a glorious reunion! maybe after you get pregnant for real. ;) my little boys are going to need wives, you know.

i hope to see you very soon!

i love you!

just cute pics

the latest

here's what the house looks like today. my camera's battery died or i would have pictures of the fireplace and bathtubs inside.

they have laid the felt for the roof on the back side which leads us to believe they will be starting that part soon. they have also got all the wiring done inside. lets hope this rain doesn't mess up anything.

total humiliation

okay, i know you all are dying to see the ENORMOUS expansion of my belly, and i won't let you down.

but i don't know if i can keep this up. i took the 4 month picture today and compared it to the 3 month...i'm quite depressed.

i am still wearing that same pair of jeans though...that's the only positive thing. so far, there has been little expansion on the rest of my body...well, except for...ahum...two parts.

so, enjoy. next month i may not be able to handle the embarassment.
(can you guess which one is from today?) :(
