Finally, a computer on the internet!

So here we are, in the end of July already!  Now I will start blogging a bit more regularly since we finally  got a computer on the internet.  We have gone a couple years with no computers on the internet because we tended to forget to renew our antivirus/antispyware and we would get viruses eventually on our computers.  We just signed up with a new phone and internet service that offers free antivirus/antispyware.. Now we no longer have to worry about renewing our subscription for it...it's just there! Up to this point we've been using our phones or other small hand-held devices to get on the internet.  They are too hard to post on a regular basis with..

So, on this homefront, I am starting to prepare for a new baby.  I'm trying to get through our whole house and get rid of all that we don't need and organize all that we do.  We also have our oldest girl going to a confirmation camp tomorrow which she will attend for 1 1/2 weeks.  We will then be going there, to MI, to attend her confirmation activities for the weekend at the end of the camp.  Then it's only probably about 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 weeks after we get home that we will have a new baby!  So exciting but also nervewracking cause I feel like there's no way I will have gotten through everything I need to for our upcoming school year and a new baby before she's born!  Yikes!!!  But if I don't, she will still come, we will still be in our glory having a new baby and all the rest will fall into place!

Well, time to sign off.  I am not getting much done sitting on here! :)

Oh, so hard to blog..

I wish so dearly I could get myself to blog regularly. This is supposed to be my way of journaling for my kids. If I ever think to sit down and blog, my mind just draws a blank. So, I decided I'm just going to write about nothing....

I don't think I've officially blogged this yet but I will, just for the journaling record. I'm pregnant! :D I know, you guys already know that, but....

I've had an ultrasound and found out that my due date is a little earlier than I thought it was...only five days but that is so much better than it being later than I thought it was! So, I'm due September 18th. Although I always wish for twins each pregnancy, I already found out that there's only one baby in ther..one cute little wee one that was already sucking it's fingers.

This pregnancy has been a very mild one...no morning sickness at all except one morning when it hadn't even crossed my mind yet that I might be pregnant, I had one sweep of nausea and that was it for the entire career of this pregnancy! However, I am still super, super tired and majorly lazy. I mean LAZY! I don't clean, don't do laundry, hardly cook...well, that was even before...just kidding, I don't cook as often as I usually do. Rrrgh, I don't like feeling like this. I hate seeing the house deteriorate even worse than it usually does. Our house is beginning to really stink and I don't even have the oomph to start scrubbing out the corners. It then depresses all of us. The very, very good side of it is that the older girls have really learned how to pull their weight and get it all done when need be. They even started to sort out a load of clothes for themselves and their buddies so everyone gets a few clean outfits again this week.

On the brighter note, I am so happy I still have been able to run to an extent. Not as often as before and not as far and even not as far within the run before I have I walk for a bit due to being short of breath...but, I am still getting it about four times per week. Plus, I'm still doing both martial arts classes and keeping up, despite a whopping ten pound weight gain already in 13 weeks of being pregnant! :(

Well, that's all I can think of...

Oh, except our baby has begun to walk! One day, she went from standing to taking five steps..not one step first, but five! The soon that same night she was taking seven. That was about two weeks ago. Now, yesterday, she took up to fourteen steps two different times,men a few times, six a couple times! I don't know who's more excited, us or her!

Alright, more later!

Trying to change my profile picture..the other one was ore two years old!

Only problem is, I can't figure out how to get this to move into the profile picture area! Hmmm...

Baked, from scratch

I came home from work today...house was sparkling and a couple of the girls had combined their efforts and made cupcakes from scratch AND frosting for them from scratch....and decorated them for everyone! What a treat!!! They are so awesome anyway, but this is the icing on the cake, so to speak. :)
