7 Quick Takes

Hi all. Sorry about my last post. We had a rough week, and although everything is pretty much the same, I'm dealing. We're getting a new battery for my Suburban today, and we're saving for tires. My uncle is still hanging on, and I've spent a lot of time with my family, so that's been hard, but nice. The drama died down, so it hasn't been too stressful.

Yesterday was my hubby's birthday. He doesn't really care much about his birthdays, which makes it hard on me, because I want to do something for him, but he doesn't care, so why? LOL. He had to work anyway, so the girls drew him pictures and we will make a special meal for him this weekend.

I had my 32 week appt on Wednesday, and didn't gain anything in 2 weeks. Stress eating and all. My body is *so* weird. I have to schedule a growth ultrasound for August 21st, to check up on him, and then will have my next checkup. I am hoping they're like, "Oh my word, he is gigantic!!" Because I really want a large baby this time around. I know that sounds odd to all of you, but my babies average a measly 6 lbs, and since this one will be a little world traveler at the ripe ol' age of 5 weeks or so, I want him to be as hearty as possible!! I'm praying for at least 7 lbs. Which is still a tiny, tiny baby.

The big girls start school in a little over 2 weeks, and they've somehow lost one of their ties. They need 2 ties each and I had 6, but we're down to 3. I'm a tad frustrated. I still need to buy school supplies, but I had thought they were all set for their uniforms. If I have to drive all the way down there just to buy an $11 tie, I'll be a little upset.

Ok, this makes me laugh. And laugh... and laugh...

I just want to put a quick shout out for all of my online buddies. Since we've started the adoption process, I have never gotten so much wonderful mail. I've gotten sweet notes, boxes of goodies for the boys, goodies for the girls, gift cards, and lots of other things. I really appreciate all the support, and I'm so thankful for not only those things, but the emotional support through all of this.

I don't have anything else to say. I need to get in the shower and get busy with my day. Costco day... for the 2nd day in a row. Woot woot!

Happy weekend!
