So I had a message in my inbox asking me why I haven't been blogging... Honestly, life has gotten crazy, and this blog has been put on the back burner... and then further back... and then shoved in a little dusty corner.
I can't promise how much I'll be blogging in the next few days/ weeks/ months, but I will promise I'll make a better effort. I do enjoy being able to come here and get my random thoughts out, and update on my life. But, ya know, I am a stay at home mother... so I have a lot of shit to do. Lol!
So one of the big things that has been a road block to blogging has actually been a MAJOR life change, which I've kind of talked about here before.
We finally bought a house!! We closed the end of November, and with trying to move, paint, shop, and then, oh yeah, Christmas, my life was seriously non-stop. Oh, and I'm still pregnant. So there's that too. Ha ha! Moving in the third trimester is not for the faint of heart. (So why is this the SECOND time I'm done it??)
Trying to spruce up the new house and get settled has taken up pretty much all of my time. Especially since the further in pregnancy I get, it seems the slower I move, and the less I can do. How annoying is that?!
I keep telling my friends and family I'm just in constant panic mode that things aren't done and ready for the baby yet. (Speaking of, gotta go put another coat of paint on that crib!) It's coming along, but I won't really be satisfied until everything is absolutely perfect. Which, knowing me, will never ever happen. I can't imagine what I'd do without some sort of project in the works. Ha!
For those who have lost count, I'm now 37 weeks pregnant. In previous posts, I've mentioned how wonderful I feel, and what an awesome experience pregnancy is for me. (I know, I know... please don't hate me.) But let me tell you this... I forgot about the 8th month. HOLY MOLY. I'm sooo ready to be done! I'm extremely sore, very tired, and this little boy is not exactly gentle anymore. Ha! Don't get me wrong, I'm still incredibly glad I'm pregnant, over the moon! But damn, I just forgot how much this last month suuuuucks. And another bad part is how anxious I am to meet this little baby. I tend to get really really sappy about it, and tear up when I think about holding him and kissing him for the first time, and the thousands of times after that. :) I'm so so so excited! Not to mention, I'm going crazy with curiousity as to what he will look like and be like. All I can imagine is another Charl, and I know that certainly won't be the case.
Ok, so there is my little update while I have a few minutes to get to the computer and type. I'll try and get a bump pic up this week and maybe even share some of fun baby things and house things that have been going on around here. (Especially because, hell, if I don't have time NOW, goodness knows when I think I'll have it when a newborn is hanging around!)
Thanks for being patient with me. :)
