I'm addicted...


Beware of clicking on that link. Seriously. If you don't want a new addiction to Internet browsing/shopping, stay away.

It is a sight where people buy and sell handmade things. Kinda like ebay but it's all things that people have made in some way. They seriously have EVERYTHING on there from woodworking to candles to purses. I spent all day yesterday just looking at stuff on there. It's amazing. I will be buying some stuff for the nursery from there.

Don't say I didn't warn you....

25 weeks

Not much to update on with the pregnancy. I've been feeling pretty good except for the occasional swollen feet. Sorry I look so bad in the pic. We took it yesterday when I got off work at our house which was 88 degrees. Blah! But the AC should be installed and going when I get home today. Yay!

Problem with the water- the breaker was flipped..duh!

Problem with the stinking water- pretty much gone. There's still a slight smell but I'm sure with time, it will disappear.

Problem with the AC- Getting replaced tomorrow. It was way worse than I thought. Something about the fan belt was broken and with it being such and old system (about 30 years old), it's not worth putting a dime in and the furnace is in the same condition so we are replacing everything. We don't really mind because we were going to do it with our tax return in the spring anyway but since we need it now we opted to go ahead and do that. I just can't wait to have a cool house. I don't think I fell asleep until 1am this morning because it was just so darn hot. I ended up sleeping on the couch and Ben was on the living room floor because the downstairs was like 10 degrees cooler than our bedroom.

One more night....

Well since I don't have a picture (again) I'll do my other weekly update tomorrow :)

We are...

officially home owners. We closed on our house last night and we got the rest of our stuff moved. I am so excited and even more exhausted. We moved all weekend (well Ben moved and I cleaned..and cleaned...and cleaned) So last night was our first night in the new house. It was not pleasant. Not that I'm ungrateful at all because I LOVE the's just not quite up and running yet.

First is the water. So the water had been turned off for like a year. That's a year of water sitting in the pipes/water heater. So when we turned it on and started using it it had a very funky smell. And by funky I mean like rotten eggs. Very old rotten eggs. On top of that, I went to take a shower last night and there was no hot water. we have very stinky, cold water. We aren't sure why there is no hot water. Ben is going to look at it the water heater today and see if he can figure it out. But the stinky water, we are clueless. I thought after it had run for awhile the smell would go away but that is not happening. Anyone have any idea how to get rid of the smell???

Also, the a/c seems to not be working. It is running but only warm air is coming out. I'm thinking (hoping) it just needs some free-on and will be fine. So any one know how to do that?

Oh the joys of home ownership :)

24 weeks

So I've been a huge slacker in the blogging area. Well actually I didn't post last week because I didn't get the picture on my jump drive to post from work because our computer at home is M.I.A (aka: Ben took it to his friends house so he can play games) (I also just noticed that M.I.A spells our daughter's name. lol) I did take the picture however it's still on my camera. And today's picture has yet to be taken because Ben is on 1st shift for a few weeks so he wasn't home this morning to take it.

Anywho, I will take one tonight and just bring my camera to work with me and upload it that way. So no pictures till tomorrow. Sorry.

I have been feeling really good. Ben and I have been taking the dogs to the park to walk 3 or 4 times a week so I think the exercise has been helping a lot. I did have an appointment last week which went good. I gained 10lbs which sounds like a lot for 4 weeks but it actually puts me right up to where I should be so I'm not worried. I just hope I don't gain that much at every appointment. My next appointment I have to do the glucose test done which will determine if I have gestational diabetes which I'm scared I will. We'll see I guess.

I am now officially 6 months pregnant. It's gone really fast and I can only hope the rest of it goes as fast. Which it should since we will be moving (hopefully this weekend) and getting everything ready and all that jazz. I can't wait to get the nursery together. I have the crib and should have the bedding really soon so I can start on that. Ok I better end this post before it gets too long.

Pictures tomorrow. I promise.
