Shots Are Evil.

I have a headache today and the baby is still sick.

Needless to say, this will be another quickie.

ImageNK’s fever comes and goes, and she’s battling a bout of loose bowels. This is totally uncommon for her. I’m almost positive this is from last week’s immunizations. I have a rant on that. But no energy to post it today. I’m peeved and sad for her at the same time. Some of the immunizations she got, I don’t think are necessary right now. If the risk factors are unprotected sex and drug use, why does my year old baby need it? *sigh*

It’s been one of those days.

On top of her being sick, I still have a ton of papers to grade before Tuesday. (Our school week runs Tues-Fri). Actually need to finish before then to plan next weeks assignments. Yes, I plan week to week. I really wish I had time to plan further out. (By plan, I mean get everything typed up in the planner so my daughters can login and view it from their computers and Kindles. I already know what we need to do.) Maybe in the future I’ll be able to pull off a month at a time.

Some good news is that SM (14) pulled a 100% on her math quiz. It was really just review, but hey, we like it! LOL

Calgon Please.

I’m going to make this quick. Today has been a LONG day. Or so it seems. Maybe I just get up too early? Anyway, NK ended up with a fever of 101 last night. I bathed her and got it down. She seemed okay this morning, but then fever crept back in. She’s been super clingy and whiney. Just not feeling herself. I didn’t get much accomplished from my todo list. Some re-arranging of the dining area, and some papers got graded, but that’s about all.

The grocery store needs to “see me” so not many options for dinner. I’m making oven fried chicken. That lovely picture to the right is from Your Life Uncommon. Which is where I also got the recipe. PINTEREST FIND!

After dinner, it’s bath time for the boy and then attempting to put the baby to bed. Yeah. We’ll see how that goes. Then more paper grading and cleaning.

I also have some bracelets to complete. Which I can’t complain about because that means I’m getting some business. LOL

Hopefully, by 11PM it will be just me and Netflix.

The Burn.

ImageIt’s late and I should be sleeping. And I will soon. But right now I have a literal pain in the butt from a Zumba workout a couple days ago. I have two XBox Zumba games and was debating getting rid of one because I don’t really like it. Zumba Fitness is a really good work out. And I just look plain cute doing it. LOL. The music is great. The steps are complicated, but cute AND the instructor gives some indication when she’s going to change a move. Then there is Zumba Fitness Rush! The game has great ratings, but I’m scratching my head because I can’t figure out why. The steps are also a little complicated, but the worst part is that the camera moves around so much, and there’s so many flashes of HOLLYWOOD LIGHTS, that I can’t even see what the instructor is doing. Not only that, there is supposed to be an indicator that shows you when another move is coming up, but every now and then they throw in some random moves. Huh? So, what’s the point of the indicator? I did not like it at all.

The issue is, I’m a little sore after Zumba Fitness, but not too much. After one workout with Zumba Fitness Rush…well, I’m super sore! Days later. So maybe it’s the better workout? As my buddy says, “first world problems.” LOL.

So yes, now I’m up with sore muscles. And what better way to soothe sore muscles? Snacks.

What?

24.

I wasn’t going to blog today, but said what the heck.

There’s really nothing new going on. I am still taking a beating from the inside. Officially 24 weeks.

Symptoms this week:

  • Pelvic pain. Hip pain. Shoulder pain (at night).
  • Gross mouth taste — after brushing even.
  • LOTS of movement from the babe. My whole belly is moving with her movements and hiccups.
  • Finding it hard to get comfortable at night.
  • Penguin walk.
  • Hungry. All the time.
  • More floaties in my eyes. Seriously keep thinking I see a fruit fly. Nope. My vision has gotten worse in general. Hope it’s temporary.

I’m trying not to complain and enjoy the pregnancy. I know once she’s here I will miss carrying her. Remind me that in the third trimester when I’m whining about not being able to move or breathe.

Oh, but dear God me. Why did I read this the other day and TOTALLY freak:

http://community.babycenter.com/post/a24972685/a_warning_as_you_approach_your_due_dates

I think I’m over it now, but I really freaked out for like an hour.

In other news, I lost my wedding ring. Back in October. I’m SICK over it. Amazingly he isn’t mad at all, but I am so upset. I was at my mother’s in early October, took it off with my grandmother’s wedding ring because they were feeling snug (finger swelling). Shoved them into my bag. Went to look for them to put back on a few days later. Grandmother’s ring was there but my wedding ring wasn’t! My mother has looked all over her house and can’t seem to find it. SICK, SICK, SICK! Really can’t afford to replace it right now, and going without any ring makes me feel awful. So, I am getting a titanium replacement. No diamonds, but it has our initials and wedding date engraved in it. Actually, we probably could have done the cheap rings in the first place. $40 vs $600. Then I probably wouldn’t feel so bad about losing it. *cries* I still hope to find it, then I’ll just wear the titanium ring on another finger, but if not….*cries, cries*

Here’s Where I’m At.

So, I realize I posted about the baby, without really posting an “update”. It has been a while since I updated.

Here’s a quickie:

  • Still getting rather sick, but better.
  • Ultrasound confirmed baby girl.
  • Started cloth diaper stash.
  • Ready for this kid to get here, but know I still have tons to do.
  • Severe pelvic bone pain. Can barely walk. =(
  • Getting beat up from the inside.
  • Next appt Dec 20. Glucose test. Yum.

Is that enough?
