And nothing to show for it!!!
Well no baby at least. I keep having lots of contractions while standing and sitting, but as soon as I lie down it all stops. Last night was about the 3rd night in a row for this happening, and I resigned myself to thinking that nothing was going to eventuate again, and I so I ended up having the best night’s sleep.
On Saturday MIL took H and M for most of the day. Justin, Jess and I went to the mall, did some shopping had lunch and it was so EASY with only 1 child in tow. There was no fiighting, arguements teasing and it made it actually quite pleasant to go shopping. Can someone remind me why I am busting my gut each day with soon to be 4 of these? Must be love (or insanity!).
Yesterday, Mum and Dad dropped in unexpectedly and took all 3 girls home with them for the day. This time NO Kids. Ahhh, blissful, remnded me of the days in our early marriage, where we just did stuff for us. They bought them home at 7pm, ready for bed, and in they went – out like a light. I wish every day were this easy!!
I did get a bit creative on the weekend and made a huge notice board for our kitchen wall. I covered a large piece of chipboard kind of soft wood with heshion and Justin screwed it to the wall. Now it has all the notes, and phone numbers and things of importance that I am always losing. LOVE IT. We also picked up a lounge suite from my grandparents place. I think they have probably had it since they got married (60years) and now it is residing in the play room , so that baby and I have somewhere to sit while the kids are out there. Slwoly, slowly we are getting thigs organised.
I have to say that one of the nicest things about moving here is the neighbours. In our old place, Mr Spooky next door never said a word to us in the whole 8 years, and the people behind were so foul we never wanted to speak to them! Here, the couple across the road always shout out “Hi” and the lady next door came in for a peek at the renovations. Everyone is lovely and friendly, and once I am out and about a bit more, I hope to get to know them evern better. A girl 4 houses down has just had twins, so I’m sure there’ll be lots to talk to her about!
OK better make a move. What will thee day bring?? I wonder 🙂
