Baby Baby

So, the camera sort of worked for me today. Here is the lovely "its a girl" shot. Poor girl, those are her bum cheeks and the arrow is pointing right between them to show she is, well, female. Sheesh, no privacy!

Here is her almost profile. She wouldn't quite cooperate and turn for a direct profile and when the technician tried to shake me to get her to move, she just moved away and looked on the other direction. 
Oh, look at me trying so hard to fool everyone into thinking I love being pregnant! What a smile, wow. Um, no, I look and feel like a pot-bellied pig. Oink oink!

Well, at least I am half way done. Eeek! ONLY halfway done! Okay, don't panic, don't panic, breathe, breathe. I can do this, I can, I can, I can.....

So, I've had the whole day to myself! Luke went into visit his parents and offered to take the kids so I could have a little break and get some things done. So, last night I went out, walked around a bunch of craft stores and didn't buy a single thing! I'm so proud of myself. Then I went to the bookstore and finally finished the last part of "Breaking Dawn", rented a couple of chick flicks, got a bag of chocolate and enjoyed the evening! It was great! 
But today, oh my today has been, well, good and bad. I had to go to Walmart to get some things and of course, not having to go with kids is always an experience, so I just walked around and looked at stuff. I had been walking so long that my legs were going numb from the pressure the baby was laying on. So, I figured it was time to go home. One of the things I was going to do was clean the apartment! Every single room was a disaster to the max! Well, over 5 hours later, it was spotless! But, well, I may have overdone it, just a tiny bit. =) We had got some stuff at a case lot sale so there had been a bunch of cases of cans in the middle of our living room. Well, after moving all those, scrubbing the bathrooms and the floors with a rag, and of course, just everything else, all the picking up and putting away, I was hurting, pretty bad. I still needed to pick up a couple things from the grocery store. So, out I went. Now, usually when I "overdo" it, there is a certain spot in my back that gets a pretty painful pinch in it which makes me limp. So, here I am, limping around the grocery store, breathing heavily cause it hurt and I sure got a couple of strange looks. I wondered if people thought I was going into labor or something! I would have loved to see myself gimping around! LOL
Well, the only sad part about a clean house is knowing that but the end of the day tomorrow, you would never have known it was clean in the first place. Gotta love it... or not.  =)

You look beautiful. Good job with your Girl's Night and productiveness, but I'm sorry you hurt from over-doing it.

E said...

Your dad did that for me once...Made reservations at a motel in "Manti"...Told me to pack up as many books as I wanted...Also, to enjoy the temple...and ONE GOOD NIGHT SLEEP!!! It was one of the neatest things I ever did...I felt completely refreshed...for a day or two...(smile)Hey...what chic flicks did you rent? (smile)

You look SO GREAT Sarah! And how fun would that be to have a WHOLE day to yourself! Even though you probably spent half of it running errands and cleaning:-( Sometimes its just nice to do those kind of things without having to mix kids in with it. I know I get things done alot faster if Ryan has an eye on Audrey for me:-)

Way to work hard on a day off! You look fabulous, so you just listen to the rest of us who know how great you look even when you don't feel like it.

So I have to know.. you say you went to a bookstore to finish the last book. Had you been reading it at the store because you weren't willing to buy it???? haha, I haven't been willing to buy that book.. just waiting for someone to lend it to me.

The movies I rented were "Penelope" and "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day".

Brittany, well, I don't own any of the books, I've always just borrowed them. So, I figured that one day I will probably own them but that day doesn't need to be now. Reading at a bookstore is kind of fun. You can just buy a hot chocolate, find a comfy chair and read away!

Brittney said...

That's interesting. I didn't even know they allowed people to read entire books at bookstores, but it sounds like they encourage it if they sell hot chocolate and have big comfy chairs. I would've thought they'd be mad if they caught you reading for too long and want you to buy instead.

You get to the next day? Wow! My girls follow behind me as I clean, trashing as they go. lol

Serene Designs said...

No way, you go into the bookstore and you'll see people reading all over the place. I've actually never bought a hot chocolate while I've been there but, I've always wanted to! I'm thinking, next time I get a bit of free time, if it happens, I'm going to start on "The Host".
Sarah, the only reason the house stayed clean that long is because by the time Luke came home the kids were sleeping and the next day was church. =)
