When I said May15th I was just guessing. Well I went on line to a due date calculator and it seems I was off by 10 days. According to the calculator my due date is May 6th. So there you have it! May 6th it is.
Now that I reflect on it I'm glad we didn't wait to get peggers in the winter for the following reasons.
1. New born in the middle of winter, bundle them up, freeze lungs etc. etc.
2. If my sister's family and us get together in May we can celebrate new baby and Avleen's birthdays together which would be fun.
3. Okay I just couldn't wait any longer. That's probly my #1 reason.
I had super vivid dreams last night. I remember only small parts but I dreamed I was having a girl. I have had dreams about 2 blond boys before too so I'm not going to let this get in my head. But I am really hoping for a pink one this time. lol.
Well that's it for me today. Have a good one ladies!

That said, I got my first bout of heart burn last night. Between Evan being awake from 1-3 and my heart burn I'm feeling rather tired and yup super grumpy.
Our new garage is now half shingled. Earl should be home from work early and hopefully him and Tracy and finish the job in the next few days. Which means we can move on to finishing up the brick. The end is so near I can taste it! Have I said I can't wait for it to be done? I must have. lol
Oh Happy B-day Leanne!
That's it for me. Have a good one!

My life is once again like this picture a tranquil garden. Well until tomorrow when Evan wakes up (it's 12:40am) Earl bangs on the garage and tells me he's riping boards off the deck today, the dogs get into the garbage again, the cats cry for food, the laundry baskets get full, the dishwasher needs to be emptied, my tummy does the crappy thing, and my hormones take off with my brain again causing me to cry for no reason, etc, etc, etc. But despite all that daily crap it's ten times better knowing I will never have to deal with that job again. I guess we'll see where the next opening door leads me. I'm hoping to a clean job, but I'm not going to eliminate plant related jobs all together. I truly felt at peace there. I must have been a farmer in another life or something.
I talked to Earl and reminded him of his past job quiting/firing transgressions. I convinced him to agree. Especially after I said I didn't care if he bought a massive truck as long as he didn't make me go back there ever again. He was joking, I was however not! He knew I was serious. He agreed and I quite!
It was like a brick wall was lifted off my shoulders. No more job stress, no more dread for my next shift, no more pressure. Well, except the actual telling work part.
I wrote a letter explaining my decision and Earl drove me. I walked into the green house Jo (Joeanne) and Marlynne where there, 2 of the ppl I loved the most. I explained and they understood. All three of us had a bitch session right there in the Green House. I'm hoping someone in that store steps up to the plate and verbally slaps that stupid man! I tried to do it in my letter but I can't be outright bitchy. I think I got my point across in a professional manor. I can only hope that having it in writing will help them see there's a big issue. But as if they didn't know, it's apparent even to the customers! Jo volunteered happily to deliver my letters to both my team lead and the store manager. I love Jo, lol, she's wonderfully rough around the edges. There was hugs, goodbyes and good lucks. It felt good that I could tell them in person and that they understood my reason for leaving.
Well that's it for me today. I'll be there Sat! I'm looking forward to it! Leanne I'll bring those cloths for you
Grrrrrrr! I might just quite! But what am I going to do other wise. I may talk to Earl and just quite without notice. They treat us like crap! Why shouldn't I treat them the same. The only thing that sucks about it is I'll be putting the 2 people I do like in the position of working alone. That's my main complaint, it makes the job soooo stressful. I should be trying to eliminate stress not add to it. I dread going to work, the thought of going made me grumpy before I had added hormones. I work alone all the time its either lonely and boring or stressful and way to busy for one person to handle! I sometimes cover up to 3 sections, 2 of which I have never been trained for. I don't know jack about leaf blowers, BBQ's, and weed eaters. I know even less about wiring, breaker boxes and yes even light bulbs! GRRRRRRRR!!!!!! How am I supposed to be helping these people! (beep-beep-beepen Manager open your eyes!)
I guess those jobs are a dime a dozen still. I could probably have another job in a week tops. Maybe at a clothing store? Something less dirty? Less lifting? Less chemicals and dust flouting around the air? I don't know. I guess I'll talk to Earl and look around. I may see you Sat.
I really want to see you ladies! I miss you!

As you all know I am currently preggers with my second child.
I may not be writing much, but I needed an outlet to voice my concerns and probably just my wonderings.
Despite the fact that I've done this all before I find myself having the same concerns as before along with some new ones:
1. Evan is so perfect! Could this baby end up being the opposite of that?
2. How am I going to juggle 2 kids?
3. How am I going to deal with a 2 year old and preggy hormones all at the same time! We all know how crazy emotional I am to begin with!
4. My job is so much more physical and stressful then the last one, how much longer am I going to be able to work there?
5. I really don't want to get all fat again, I've worked so heard!
That's it I'm going to make charts, follow the diet instructions in my books.
I'm only going to have 2 cups of coffee a day.
I'm going to take some time for me! I haven't been out on my own with out Earl or Evan for Months! It's time to put my foot down once again. But there is so much to do! Finish the yard, put in the flooring, move Evan to a big boy bed, finish potty training, move Evan to the next room and repaint his old room! Think Pink Everyone!
That's just an over view. My mind is swimming with questions, with thoughts. I'm hoping my book will give me some answers but it's heard to find the time to read. I'm on the diet part of the book now. I'm going to formulate a plan, and try to stick with it. The book says that cravings aren't going to happen as bad this time round. I only had 1 or 2 cravings with Evan so here's hoping my body skips that calorie fest all together.
Well that's all for me today. Come back soon!
