My friend, Carrie, does "brain declutters" on her blog and today I decided that I needed to do one as well. So here are all of the random things going on in my brain today....
*So I still haven't made my first doctor's appointment and yesterday as I was talking with a friend, I admitted to the real reason why I haven't called yet. I am totally embarrassed. I'm afraid that he is going to say, "Weren't you just here having your last baby?" And I'll say "Oh yes, she's right here. Would you mind holding her while I strip down and get in my favorite paper robe?" Or maybe he'll say, "Do you know what birth control is?" And I'll say, "Yes, but remember there is still that tiny chance?" Maybe he won't even remember me and it won't even be a big deal. Or maybe, just maybe, he will be happy to see me because I am keeping him in business, right?! I know what you are thinking, "just make your appointment!" I know, I know. I should just pick up the phone right now, but...what's the big hurry anyway? I'm only 13 weeks along!!!
*School stresses me out!!! I thought that the day that I got my college diploma was the day that all of my school stress was over. I couldn't have been more wrong!! Second grade is making my hair go gray. On Katelund's last report card she was so excited that she made the honor roll once again. It took everything in me to be excited with her because all that I could see were the B's staring back at me. She got a 96, 93, 91, and 86. Well apparently, in Tennessee they like to use the college grading scale in elementary school and make an A be 93-100. Which makes her 91 a B!!! SERIOUSLY!!!! THIS MAKES ME ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!!! Now, I know I should be happy for her because she has worked really hard and her reading has drastically improved this year, but still..... two B's?! All I can hear in the back of my head is my dad saying, "You got another B?" You see, in my dad's opinion B is failing. Well all through high school, I was an AB student but when I went to college I was determined to change that. I worked harder than I've ever worked in my life and by the end of my 4th year in college, I had a cumulative GPA of 3.8. Cory still remembers the day that I came home crying like crazy after taking a test in the testing center because I had gotten a 93. Grades became a really big deal to me and I think I was a little obsessed. Well, I don't want grades to control me the way they used to because grades are NOT the most important thing!! So what is wrong with me??? I have got to get over this!!!! Because as smart as Katelund is, she has a very distracted and creative mind. She has some AMAZING gifts and abilities but she is just not the sit in your desk and quietly do your work all day kind of girl. I love who she is and I just need help her to be her best self, not somebody who I think she should be. Does anyone else have this problem?
*How am I ever going to keep up with 6 people's laundry? I am barely surviving 5 people's worth right now!!!!
*The baby bump/bulge/makes everything fit tight stage is here. Stefani, Cory's youngest sister who is due the same week that I am with her first baby, has not gained a pound. Good for her right?! As for myself.....come on, it's my 5th pregnancy!! All though I did do pretty awesome on the P90X cardio workout the other day with Cory. At least I'm working out this pregnancy. But not obsessively like I did with Katelund. I only gained 19 pounds with her. (is it just me or does it seem like I am using the word obsessed a lot? Maybe I really do have a problem!)
*Do you have an extra couple of minutes (probably not if you have made it this far in this never-ending post)? Well if you do, you HAVE to read this post by my friend Melanie. It has changed my life...SERIOUSLY!!! I am determined to be better at dinners. My problem is that I always wait until crazy time (when Hailey wants attention and the girls are doing homework/fighting/begging for attention and food) to make dinner. Which means that on some nights it is not even ready until 7!! I am going to change!! And she gives some great ideas on how to. THANKS MELANIE!!!!
[ETA.....I just got off the phone from making my first appointment for next week. What made me decide to actually pick up the phone? My sister-in-law had her appointment today and she texted me a picture of her ultrasound. It got me all excited and I called my doctor right away.]
