My Birthday Week!

Well, I started my week off a little crappy. I had the flu over the weekend, but I'm much better now. Also, Dr. Stradtman called me at 8pm to inform me that the bacteria- proteus- that has been staying with me throughout my pregnancy is still here. So I get to go see a urologist! Not excited about that, but her nurse said she didn't think they would have to do an 'examination'. I hope she's right! So I'm currently taking a multivitamin, extra folic acid, iron for my anemia, Tamiflu, Zpack, and Augmenten. I will have to take the Augmenten the rest of the way. I don't mind any of this, I just hope Anna doesn't.

My birthday has always been a running joke with friends and family. It usually kinda stinks. I think it has a lot to do with the weather this time of year, because I'm usually sick- check. Historically, January 28 is not the greatest day either. Reagan was shot, I watched the Challenger explode on my 5th birthday, Anna and Brian died, you get the picture. This year, unfortunately, is no exception. We found out Tuesday that Matt's great grandmother passed away. She is such a sweet lady and I'm so glad that I've been able to get to know her these past few years. It's hard to be sad for her because, in the condition she was in, she was already gone. She was just stuck here, not getting to enjoy her reward. But now she's in Heaven with family and friends and she's healthy and hopefully eating like a horse! So, today I am happy for her. Tomorrow I will be sad for the family, but not her. Nemaw will be missed. I wish she had lived to meet Anna. How many kids can say they met their great-great-grandmother?

Well, time to go. I'm headed to church and then Guad for dinner with my friends!

It's all I can do...

just to keep my eyes open today. I feel like I'm in college again. Since my major required hours of sitting at a computer staring at blue prints, my eyes would get very tired and my eyelids would jump for weeks at a time. I'm there today. I've always had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Thanks to pregnancy, I can FALL asleep anywhere. I just still have the trouble with STAYING that way. I wake up constantly on my back- which I know isn't good. I guess God's just getting me used to all the sleepless nights ahead.

We went to Atlanta this weekend to see Stuart and Teresa. We had a great time and got to go play at Lenox Square mall. As we were walking, I looked at my hands and they looked like I had hot dogs for fingers! That was my first swelling experience so far. It took about an hour for my rings to finally come off and I don't plan to put them back on for fear of having to cut them off. And when I say cut 'them' I mean my fingers because there's no way I'm cutting my wedding rings! I would be devestated!

General question...why do some older men have to be disgusting, sexist, rude, condescending pigs? Just wondering. It's been very rough around our office lately. Since we now have 3 people doing the work of 10. Luckily, my two co-workers and I work very well together. Otherwise, I'd go crazy.

We plan on getting some things done for the nursery this week. I know some of you can't beleive it hasn't been done for months, but we haven't had much time. I'm struggling with bedding. I really like what I've chosen, but I don't LOVE it. My mom has offered to make Anna's bedding, like she did Ava's. Ava's was great, but I know it's such a hassle. Plus, I don't really have time to go look at fabric. I guess I better decide soon since Matt wants to paint this weekend! :)

Well, guess I'll go now. Hope everyone is doing great and has a great week!
