Things have been going around here. Since we decided to stay I have been in reno mode full force! I decided I wanted to make it work for us and quickly so I have been very busy which has lead to very sore muscles (I moved the couch by myself which involved having to tip it up, hewoman, why yes) BUT it has been great for my weight loss. I am now 2lbs away from loosing all of Jacob's weight, at the rate I am going I'll even get to start working on the 9 left from Ty. However, my goal was to loose all of Jacob's so I'll be happy with that. I managed to finish the bathroom (with the exception of re-caulking the bathtub and having the landlord replace the wood around the window) and the kitchen. I also moved the couch and have painted half of the new master bedroom/nursery. I'm very excited to see it all coming together. The only room I think I will have problems with is the new living room....not sure I'm happy with how it is currently, I know I'll have to do some more painting, hanging things and such, maybe get a new smaller floor rug...I don't know, it just doesn't feel "comfy" But everything else is starting to come together so I'm okay with that.
For anyone in Canada, Zellers is starting there store closing sales, might want to stop in to see what they have. Right now most things are 10-30% off with a good chunk being 20% off. I was in there and surprisingly found the perfect table runner while getting some plastic bins. I also decided to get Charlie a new toy, a big one that he can't loose under the fridge or in the vents...the only thing is it is absolutely the most annoying toy ever. It is a big ball with a mouse inside and the mouse squeaks. We'll have to make sure to hide it at night or we'll be up all night. He was afraid of it at first which was hilarious but now he loves it so I'm okay that it's annoying. Anything for my furbabies (Milo also got his allergy shot this morning and seems to be feeling better already, my poor bug has just had a very rough last 6 weeks, hoping he settles down)
Went out for dinner this week with one of the couples from our new infant loss group. We decided to try Casa Cubana and forgive me if I already mentioned this but I have to mention it again. GO THERE!!!! The food was amazing! We will be going back for sure, probably in the summer so we can sit on the patio. Great food, best burrito I have ever had hands down! There rice was really good too. I'll save room for dessert for next time so I can report on that. We have group this Wednesday and I'm really looking forward to it. It's the week to bring our pictures or other mementos that remind us of our boys.....can someone lend us a forklift because we have a lot! I think I'll bring their scrapbooks and their Molly Bears to this meeting, can always bring more the next time, maybe their shadow boxes....or Jacob's lotion....ohhh sooo many choices!
In health news....everything is good to go! I had all my bloodwork done and everything is perfect. That being said, I am starting to get really bad heartburn and I think my gallbladder is acting up again. I thought it was from the cinnamon I was eating but it's still been doing it so I may have to lay off the beef, fat and spicy foods for a few days to see if it settles down and pop some serious tums. We do go back to our high risk OB on the 17th to ask him about 1 million questions....seriously, some days it feels like we have that many. We wanted him to go over everything about the boys again, talk about my health (though we know it's good) perhaps he may suggest running a few tests, talk about a future pregnancy and everything that will be involved with that and get a good check up on my scar. We do know there will be a hospital stay near the end like last time, just not sure at what point. Assuming we are even able to get pregnant again....there is one small but fixable thing standing in the way right now and I hope it settles itself out, if not I'll be popping some pills.
As I am typing this I am giggling like crazy. Stephen is on the phone with a tenant who seriously is lacking a brain. This guy just does not get it and it sounds like there's a monkey in the background....oh my goodness is you all could hear the conversation....he is making no sense!
Not much else going on, about to head to bed and do my Women's World crossword thanks to my awesome hubby who knows how to make my day! (It really does not take a lot these days) May not be on for a few days but will be busy working away on the house, hanging some doors, installing some molding, finishing painting, moving more furniture around, trying to decorate to my liking (which I think will be very hard) and hopefully finish our new house in the next week. I think my reward may be a night or two away with the hubs, we never did get to go on a honeymoon due to everything going on with Jacob and because we were broke, I mean we still are broke but with Groupon Getaways I think we can stretch for a night or two away if GG comes to watch her furbabies and take care of the boys. I know for our relationship we need to get away but I just pray my heart lets me.
