I felt felt well enough to go out today!!! So so nice. :-) So I put make up on, did something with my hair, and wore my homemade necklace. It's a brooch I turned into a necklace. I added some beads that matched the inside, too. I love it. :-) Anyway, we went to Applebee's b/c they have Pepsi. We looked around for a bit in Target and then Old Navy. It was so nice to do something! After a couple hours out in the heat, my nausea inevitably got worse. Plus, I was feeling shaky so I needed to eat. We are hoping to go out again in a little bit. Maybe Big Lots or K-Mart.
Oh, we got a queen air mattress for when we move so that we will have something to sleep on! We saved $6 so I was happy. :-)
Just pics of us.
Kaylee being cute.
Oh, we went to a consignment store first, and we got this Moses basket!!! I like it so much better than a bassinet b/c we can put it in the bed with us which means I won't have to get up at all when I need to feed/change him. :-) Great for my energy level. Plus, we can use it in the hotel when we travel in December! And I can put the baby in it to sleep anywhere in the house. I love it! :-)
Oh, my midwife said I don't need to sleep on my left side - that it's not that important. I was so glad b/c it really hurts my j-tube and it has started to bleed from it. So I can sleep in comfort again. I had started sleeping on my right side before I even checked with her b/c it was messing my tube up. It feels tight now so soon I will have to get it replaced. My OB and midwife were like oh.... Sigh. Way to keep me calm..... I am so nervous b/c I can go into preterm labor... The last thing I want. Keep praying eveyrthing goes well when I do finally get it changed out. :-)
Oh, I finally got a 2 inch memory foam for the bed! I've been letting it air out. I need to get a cover for it so the smell is even less. All I need is an asthma attack. I hope it helps all my pain. :-)
I finished my last assignment for school about a week ago. I also wrote a new story and sent it out to Highlights this week. I have more hope that this one could sell. It's called, "The Elephant Who Couldn't Eat Peanuts". It's for 4-8 years olds. Wouldn't it be awesome if it did sell???!!! I wouldn't know what to do with myself. :-)
Oh, I've been looking into getting a handicap van. I called Joni and Friends, and they are going to see if they have one in their resources. They will call me Monday b/c the woman who does that wasn't in. I am praying they have something. I would love to be able to go places myself! Especially with the baby coming. :-) We can not afford to buy one. They run around $40,000 for the kind I can drive. Is that not utterly ridiculous?! Sigh. But at least I can keep checking with Joni and Friends and see if they ever get something I can use. Gives me hope. :-)
That's all for now.
