So the excitement has started. I hope that everyone else has found the start of the new year a good one also. During all my happenings these last few days I've been thinking of my online friends who are ttc. Some for quite a while. I hope that soon they all find themselves pg. The more the merrier! When I was pg for Olivia there a huge group of online ladies that were also due. It was fun to be a part of them...I'd love to have it like that again!
I wanted to make some New Year's resolutions but I haven't really thought about it much these last few days. I know one of them would be to keep up on the housekeeping more...having the kids help me more. Last week I'd thought about joining Curves gym to try to lose some weight..guess that's not going to happen now. LOL I guess I could stick to the GD diet and take good care of myself as a resolution. Unfortunately I've not being too successful on that though...seeing as I just finished off my second poptart as I type this. OOPS! Spiritually there is always tons of room for improvement and I hope to be open to whatever he has instore to me.
Today has been a pretty lazy day. I keep seeing everything that I need to do but it's not getting done. Laundry is piling up and will have to be done tomorrow, seeing as the kids start school on Monday. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get everyone going and get this place back to the condition it was on Sunday. It shouldn't take as long that's for sure.
Everyone that NEEDS to know about my pg has now been told. I tried to call MIL yesterday before I went to church but it was busy. I got ahold of her first this morning. She refused to believe I was pulling a trick on her. She finally came around that it was real and congratulated me. She mentioned my health and yes, it's a concern. I told her what D said to me about God not making mistakes and she agreed. It seemed to help her accept it more.
My parents were next. When I called I wasn't even sure I was going to tell them today...just play it by ear. HOWEVER Olivia had other plans. She was yelling...Momma's gonna have a baby into the phone before they even answered. I let her tell my dad but he thought she was fooling around saying SHE was going to have a baby. He was a bit quiet when he realized it was ME that was going to be having it. He admitted he didn't know if it was exciting news or not. I expected that from him. I could hear my mom saying congratulations in the background. I asked if I could talk to her, Eileen wanted to tell her the news. Her and I talked a bit. At least she was supportive.
My brother and sister were next. They were shocked and I told them they weren't alone. I had a nice conversation with both of them and they congratulated me. It's all I could ask from them. I do have to wonder though what was said OFF the phone though. LOL Having shared the news with a few of Tom's brothers and sisters at church on Friday...everyone is officially notified. Oops...just realized we never called and told Tom's baby brother C about it. I'll have to have Tom call him.
Carrie has her friend R over for the night. They are being quiet, you wouldn't even know she was here. It's nice that Michelle has taken it upon herself to keep them busy and play with them all night too. Right now they are playing Barbies. LOL Most of the other kids are watching the first Lord of the Rings. I haven't seen any of them yet. Most have seen them quite a few times, not necessarily in order. I'm off to pay more attention to it.
