What we've been up to...

Hey there everyone!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA lately. I have no real excuse.((Other then I really love Law and Order: SVU and NCIS) But I have had a lot on my mind lately...

1. JM got a new job! It is going to be great! He only started today- yes on a Friday- but he is so excited about it, a whole new challenge. Not to mention it is 3.6 miles from the house!!!! YAY! So he can come home for lunch, will not be stuck in traffic everyday on the way home, and with this position there is room for growth. He will not be working until midnight and going in at 5 to deal with some crazy deadlines! YAY! Did I mention it is 3.6 mies from the house!!!
(As excited as I am about that, I am also a little worried that since he will not be stuck in traffic, I will have to get my chores done way in advance now so that I don't look so lazy!)

2. Speaking of chores... I have set up a little daily planner for myself. Since I am home and must keep my feet up for a good portion of the day, I have come up with a little plan for me to get the house ready by the time our Girl get here. However I am thinking that washing the sheets once a week, vacuuming the floors once a week, as well as a few other chores kept on a weekly rotation is not going to cut it! Does anyone have a list or a link they could send me to get my house clean in a month... If not then I am going to have to have a team of maids come a week before she gets here!

3. Nesting. This is soon to start. I can feel something changing... and it is like the calm before the storm. Last night (after the 5th time I got up to use the bathroom!) I laid in bed thinking of how I need to get the house ready before she gets here. This was at 5:00 am. I am talking baseboards and trim people. It is not bright white. And I NEED it to be bright white. I NEED it to be BRIGHT WHITE yesterday.
I am also thinking about hair bows. (random I know) But I think that miss priss will NEED them, and I MUST make them soon. I am not sure that I will be putting the massive big ones in her hair, but I think that some cute clips are in order. Bows are a MUST.

4. Modifies Bed Rest is going great! My ankles are not swollen, my blood pressure has returned to normal, and so has my iron level. I feel so much better not being stressed out, not to mention that I don't have to fill up my car twice a week, nor do I eat out for lunch every single day anymore. So we have been saving some money- kinda...
But my appointments are now getting closer. Next on is in 3 weeks, then after that 2 weeks, then down to 1 week in between visits. It is getting real. Really really real. I know that she cannot stay in there forever, but to be honest i am scared to death. I mean this is uncharted territory people.... I just want to meet her already and bring her home.

5. Today is Friday. YAY! That still means the same thing as before to me. No work tomorrow, but now it is JM that will be home with me. It also means that it is a date night to celebrate JM's new job. We both have been craving a good steak! So we are going somewhere I have never been. Bones. I hear that it is amazing... so I will make sure to write about it next week!

6. Tomorrow my wonderful Sisters-in-law are throwing me my first Baby Shower! I cannot wait! This one will be only the McCracken side of our family. I am so excited I can hardly wait.

7. I had mentioned in a post once before that I will be doing a giveaway.... Well that time has come! Next week I will give you all of the details and let you know what it is... Then next Friday I will announce the winner! I am really excited about this!

8. I am also really excited that the next few weeks of blogging are going to be fun! A few announcements to make, as well show off a few pictures too!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend! I will be back next week. Now it is time for another episode of Law and Order: SVU, talking with the kitties, and of course more laundry and dusting to do....

OH and PS. My MOM told me that a bunch of people read this blog and that you all have informed her that I am really slacking over here... I am sorry! Follow the blog then I will know just how many of you are missing out on my updates! IF you don't Follow then I will never know!

Have a Happy Friday!!!!



  1. Glad you're back! Can't wait to hear the announcements!

  2. I can't wait to see the pictures!
