Monday again

It's Monday again. I took a vacation day because we went to a Detroit Lions game yesterday afternoon (I don't want to talk about how they are doing this year). Plus, I have extra days to take before the end of the year, so I figured why not. Then I can get some laundry, cleaning and homework done since we had a jam packed weekend. Plus I'm nesting a little bit too and rearranging our living room and whatnot.

T and I finally sat down and looked at our budget. We had been toying with the idea with me staying home with Elias for a year while I finish school. And we finally figured out that if we pay off both our cars, downgrade our cable and cell phone package, and start saving my paychecks, I'll be able to! YEAH! I am so excited!

It's so exciting but weird to refer to the baby by his name instead of Sweet Pea. We are so excited! I'm getting a little tired of people rolling their eyes when they find out how we came up with his name (Elias was Walt Disney's middle name, Alan is after my dad and T's brother). Oh well. He's our baby and we get to name him what we want.

Finally, I have to break the habit of sleeping on my back = (. So sleeping has been a chore and my sides and hips hurt. It's so hard too cause I wake up and I'm on my back. Gah.

Alright I'm done rambling. How as your guy's weekend and Monday going?

Re: Monday again

  • I love where you got your son's name from. Hater are gonna hate. LOL! It is so wonderful that you will be able to stay home with him. 

    H's dad came over today because he wanted to see Abby. We went for a pretty long walk. It was nice. Abby took a nap and then we played on the porch. She's been outside with H since he came home since I am working really hard at making Hamburger Helper. LOL! We might go visit his parent's tonight. They went to PA for a wedding this weekend and really missed Abby.

  • I still wake up on my back occasionally.  I try to keep a pillow behind me so I end up leaning on it and am not fully on my back.  And I love your name choice.  We kept Lily's name a secret from almost everyone (I think I told you guys) because we didn't want to listen to their opinions. 

    Went to the zoo today with P since he is on vacation this week.  It was a great zoo day.  Pretty empty and a nice cool fall day.

  • That's a great idea. That might help me sleep too since I love sleeping on my back. Just makes me nervous and I wanna try and kick the habit before something bad happens. I didn't know before, otherwise I would have done this as soon as I found out I was pregnant lol.

  • Don't stress about back sleeping. Your body knows what it is doing and you'll instinctively roll over or move before something happens. But I totally understand where you're coming from. I was the same way with Caden. With Emerson I mostly slept sitting up... let me tell you how not fun that was. LOL

    I spent most or my afternoon cleaning my kitchen. I am determined to have a nice clutter free house. I've all ready told DH we are painting the walls. I am so sick of white and all the dirt that can be seen on it.

  • I know. It's just my paranoid first time mom self coming out = ). I'm going to try the pillow idea Michelle had.

    i ended up doing two loads of laundry, putting dishes away that T washed over the weekend, rearranging our living room and doing a bunch of reading homework. Tomorrow I have to finish laundry, fold clothes, wash more dishes and start cleaning our office.

  • I need to get used to it too. I usually start on my side, and end up on my back. It was a busy day for me. Between the doctor, going into work late, and J's birthday dinner, I was exhausted.
