I'm still sick and if I want to get on here I have to use my phone. And I hate my phone. I can't tell you the last time I was sick, I'm so so thankful my husband has been so helpful. He made brownies for our 8 year olds class to celebrate his birthday. It fell during Christmas break then we were off longer, then I got sick. He's been taking care of dinner, the house as best as he can. I feel so useless right now. My mom has been awesome also with taking my son to school.
My wahoo? My fever seems to have broken and the baby is really wiggly today so it's giving me something to be happy about.
Whines - My boss is driving me bonkers. We all joke (even him) that he has multiple personalities, but he seriously must. He's threatening to undo work that has taken me 3 days this month, when he had 4 months last year to have input. I'm supposed to be starting to train my back-up just in case my maternity leave starts early, yet I have to waste all this time on rework he gives me. GAH!
Woohoo - I am 3 months away from meeting LO. I should be induced no later than 4/25 and I am so ready for this to be over.

Whines: Husband out of town. MIL flew in to "help" me with my son. MIL, who is high maintenance and pretty unhelpful to begin with, immediately gets extremely sick with either food poisoning from a restaurant or a stomach bug, hard to say.
I feel terrible for her, but work is nuts and I already don't have any time to take care of myself along with a 2 year old without adding a super sick elderly person. And to make it even more fun, she was convinced she shouldn't be drinking any fluids until her diarrhea stopped. WTH? Recipe for severe dehydration. I threatened to take her to he ER and luckily got her to call her doctor who told her exactly how much and what to drink.
Wahoos: I have a big deadline getting finished up at work today and after about 2 months of total insanity things are finally approaching a more manageable level. Hawaii trip in 10 days!!! And super wiggly wonderful baby in there.
Location: Bossier City, Louisiana(missing Aviano, Italy)
Whine. my heartburn is so bad this time even pills I usually take don't help . Pregnancy brain sucks. Teething toddlers suck. I get super bloated after eating a few carrot sticks (or light meals) :/. Pregnancy stuffy nose really sucks I can't breath and I'm out of breath just walking from my couch to my bathroom. My foster dogs chewed through the cable/wire connected to my outside ac unit, we don't know if it's fixable.
Not whine. All of our foster dogs have been adopted. Baby girl moves a lot lol. My husband is being less of a butt lately.
Meh. We may have made the decision to early separate from the Air Force. It's exciting and super scary.
Friday arvo here but gonna join in anyways too.
Whines: Today was crap. It was way too hot, the kids were nuts and it was a very unproductive day in general. Also my great grandma died which sucks a bit but really, it doesn't really get much better death wise than 99 and dying in your sleep. She'll be pissed though because she was hanging out for 100 (which was 8 months away) as you get a letter from the queen.
Wahoos: I am officially too fat for the work shirt and get to wear my own . Also given the ok to wear singlets! Also, it's now Friday, I've finished work for the week and it's a long weekend!!! Yay for Australia Day!
Whine: I am no longer able to do my job and have been on disability for the second week now. I have yet to find a job to help with the loss in income. Disability pays crap. I graduated last summer and have been looking for an accounting job since, but after 50-60 resumes being sent out I have gotten numerous rejections emails. After one yesterday, I finally had a meltdown and balled my eyes out on my couch. I feel like I'm never going to find anything and will be stuck doing overnights at UPS for the rest of my life.
Wahoo: I have an interview for a retail position next week. It would at least be something. Hubby has been feeling my belly lately, which means he is becoming more emotionally invested in his baby girl. Yay! And I put together my baby registries, bringing much needed happy thoughts and peace to me.
