New happenings

It's 3am. Reverting back to my old ways, I guess first trimester feelings and symptoms are coming back. Baby girl seems to be sleeping peacefully at the moment. But mommy is very much awake. I am going on 35 weeks! I know, I've done a horrible job at updating my belly photos...and blog. So much has transpired in the last 4 weeks, I don't know where to begin. Lists. I'm really good at making lists, so here is one....

"Last four weeks of my life"

  • Brad got a promotion at FedEx Ground- PT service manager. My man, I'm so proud. After working his tail off for the last year and a half, he's finally gotten noticed and beat several guys for the position, some that had been there for six years or more.
  • I got a full time second shot at another chiropractor's office in town.
  • I'm having a hard time adjusting to a new style of running an office compared to the one I worked at in Georgia.  
  • This job has been kicking my butt from 9-6 plus a few hours on Sat.
  •  I'm running what should be a "two-girl" show at the front desk. But doing my best as a 34 wk pregnant girl....who, according to my pregnancy books...has an absent-minded pregnancy brain...have you ever heard of your brain actually shrinking during this time?...that's what I've read and would like to blame it on that.
  • I've gained over 30 lbs.
  • I crave cereal, cheese, peanut butter and honey sandwiches.
  • I've discovered pinterest. I heart.
  • Starting this weekend...3 baby showers for the next 3 Saturdays.
  • I got offered my job back from the first chiro office that fired me after the news of my pregnancy. I got the Department of Fair Employment involved several weeks ago to help me with this case...and indeed, they have helped me!
  • I told them I have a new job now....the next step was to request my back pay, from the time of lay off up until the start of my current job. They excepted my offer. Holy cow I was shocked and amazed that they did. 
  • Waiting to receive that check....this week.
  • My little business with "Earth Blossom" has been put on hold...temporarily. But still livng it...the simple and natural way. 
  • Brad and searching for a little rental. Woohoo!
  • We found a Doula! Her name is Emily. We really adore her. Thrilled that she will be assisting us in the hospital for the birth of our first baby girl.
  • What else, what else?
  • Oh yeah we started our birthing class. It's awesome. Taught by a lady named Sharon who teaches the Bradley method way.
  • Hehehe, Brad and I went to the Kern County Fair with our friends Jonathon, Mishael and baby Jordon. After six years of missing out on the fun, we thought we had to go. The worst thing ever. But the highlight was definitely the cinnamon rolls and watching five year olds do a sheep rodeo...I forget the official name of this.
  • We have decided on a name. But it's a secret :D

I think that's a good enough list for the moment. Pictures next time!! Now that Brad's alarm is about to go off for work, I'll try to lay it down again. Geese Louise!
