Thursday Thirteen #7

Thirteen Things That I Didn't Get To Tell You This Week Because I Have Been Sick

1. Gabriel got pneumonia out of this crappy sickness.

2. We are both FINALLY starting to feel better. Gabriel stayed home from work according to DR's orders Wednesday.

3. Mark has spent a few days and even over night at Grandma's house, which has let us rest up. And it gave Mark and Grandma practice for when the baby comes.

4. I have all the baby's things washed, folded, put away, and set up. I put a make-shift bedroom in the office. Just a changing station, bassinette, and monitor. So that I can take care of one kid's needs if the other is sleeping. :)

5. I also have my bags packed and Mark's bags packed, so in all actuality I can go into labor at any point and be ready.

6. We went to a wedding Saturday, before we knew we were sick. I hope we didn't make the bride and groom sick. I have been waiting for that party for a long time. I had a new blouse and skirt that I bought at a resale shop a month ago. They fit better at that point then they did Saturday. :P I put on make up and did my hair and everything. I felt so dressed up!!

7. I had another OB on Tuesday. Everything is still fine. I have been feeling pressure, but the DR said Abby has just dropped already and there is no worries. I made a deal with Abby that she can come at any point after Saturday.

8. That is because Saturday is our block party. It will be smaller than previous years but that is alright. I don't have any work to do on Saturday. It should be pretty easy and just basic hosting and visiting. I don't have to cook. My husband will grill hotdogs and hamburgers and the rest is potluck. All the set up will be Gabriel and his brother. The activities for the kids are all planned and pre-set up. I don't plan on doing anything if I don't feel like it.

9. Anyone who wants to come do dishes or laundry for me is welcome. Any takers??

10. I have missed you all so much, but have been feeling so crappy that this is the first time I have even checked my e-mail in 5 days!

11. I have been so pre-occupied the past 2 months for all kinds of reasons that I have forgot that my birthday is coming up!!!!!!!!! Not just forgot to tell you, forgot totally!

12. It is July 4, believe it or not. I was born in the evening during the fireworks. I will be 23 this year. My birthday is always special because it is on such a memorable day.

13. I think that we are going to take Mark to see the fireworks this year. I don't think he will be afraid at all. I am excited because I missed them last year. How could I forget about my birthday?!?!

Momma Bee said...

Ugh, so sorry about all the sickness, but glad you're all on the mend! Can't believe Abby is going to be here soon!!

Happy almost Birthday -- what a great day to be born, and how cool would it be if Abby arrived on the same day? Well, it would suck to miss the fireworks, but you'd be having your own kind. ;)

You know, even though it says in your banner that you're 22 and I've read it a million times, it only just hit me when you said you were turning 23 what a spring chickie you are -- I feel old. :)

Tricia said...

I'm sorry to hear that you've both been sick. :( But I am glad that you're getting better.

Great list.

EmilyRoseJewel said...

#23--just like your age. So sorry about your sickness. It stinks to be that far along and sick at the same time! I hope and pray everything goes so smoothly with Abby's arrival. I know you are so excited. I can't wait to have a sibling for Justice! I will have to see how things go for you in the coming months with your new addition. Congrats! Thanks for visiting me earlier!

Janice (5 Minutes for Mom) said...

Wow - you are organized! When my water broke with my son I wasn't packed and I tried to pack while experiencing the inconvenience of my water fully broken. When they say it breaks I thought it breaks and then that is that. Ya - no! So good you are prepared!!

have fun with your new baby!! How wonderful that you have Grandma to help!!!

I hope you are better soon. That is so terrible to be so ill and so pregnant.

First time here - so nice to meet you.
