I'm still alive,I promise.

~I know,it's been over a month since I've blogged. I've alternated between being super busy and not having motivation to do anything. We have lived in my IL's house for a few weeks now and the place is still cluttered. I'm finding it hard to do anything beyond taking the kids to school and running errands occasionally. When I'm home,I just want to lie down or read.

~Adam is still working with his brother right now. He has enough work to last through the rest of the month and Adam even got a raise. We are behind on a few bills so money is still a stressful issue. It feels like every time I get my head above water,some bully swims by and pushes me back under. I buy something at the store and then come home to find I am out of three other things.

~Josh turned 8 earlier this month. We had cake and ice cream with some of my IL's. The next day we went to Denny's for dinner. While Josh was eating,he said,"Mmm,ambrosia!" He is such a funny kid. He is still worried about being baptized,insisting that someone can do it for him after he dies. I hope that after he talks to the bishop,he will feel better about it.

~I had my first prenatal appointment last week. It took the doctor a long time to find a heartbeat so he ended up doing an ultrasound. All is well with the baby and I found out that I was 12 weeks instead of 10. I am due on July 26th now.

10 people love me:

i heard that being pregnant makes you tired. sounds like a cop out to me. i think it's just an excuse to nap a lot. :-)

but srsly, my little bro clung to my dad's leg, screaming, at his baptism. they sent us all home, and did it a few weeks later in a private ordinance. i didn't mind driving 7 hrs for that. i got to see my family, and there was cake there...

That's how I like people, alive. ;) Sorry about your "bully," I think we've all got one of those. And way cute that he said, "mmm, Ambrosia." HILARIOUS! I love that movie. What a funny kid.

Happy day that your pregnancy is 2 weeks further along than you thought. Good luck with everything! We'll keep praying for you.

Love you. Don't beat yourself up about not getting more done... you need time to rest. And no wonder, with your baby being two weeks ahead of you. ;)

I'm glad Adam's working. :)

I'm pretty sure that all that stuff you need to do will wait for you get around to it. In fact, I'm absolutely positive and have a whole unfinished family room to prove it :)

Thanks for being alive. We've got Eclipse coming up to go see.

Hey, you definitely need to rest. Those first um, 9 months are the hardest!

And my son had his issues with the Holy Ghost part. He kept freaking out about having a ghost inside him.

It all works out, though. Even if it's not on the day you want it to. :)

You need a MIL who will tend the kids for you while you run Joshie to school. HEY! That's me. So when do I start. How about Monday?

Happy day! (sorry I didn't offer sooner)

Get lots of rest. The housework will wait. It never leaves :( The good news is that when the kids are all grown and gone it gets better. :) (I know that's a long wait... bummer.

You know, you have enough going on, don't worry about not blogging. That's awesome you're two weeks closer to your due date than you anticipated! I hope things continue to go well for you. :)
