Sick

Mr. Y is very sick.  Like the pathetic, lie on the couch all day kind of sick. I took his temperature after he woke up from his FOUR HOUR NAP today - it was 102.9!!!  Eeeeck!  Meds got it down right away though so that was good.  I feel so bad for him.  :(

The other two littles are still somewhat sick.  I will most likely not be going to church tomorrow because I will have at least one child to stay home with, if not two or three.  The good news is that I can still stream the service online, which is pretty darn cool if you ask me.  Also other good news is that I'm feeling great! Hopefully I keep that up and don't get whatever it is that the kids have.  I've been sick twice in this pregnancy so far, one time really just knocked me on my butt and it was no fun at all.

We got a storage unit rented and one load of junk out to it tonight.  It's not really junk I guess, just stuff we don't need in the foreseeable future (Christmas decorations, clothing that is too small for my current children and will be too big for the baby for at least a year or 18 months, etc.).  I already have another load of stuff ready to go. I feel so much better already!  We were lucky enough to get a unit that is less than 1/2 mile away from our house. Doesn't get much better than that!

Brian is moving to his new office on Monday, so that will be even MORE stuff out of our house. I don't know what in the world I'm going to do with all the space we are going to have!  Oh wait, yes, I do know. I will try to keep it as neat and clean and orderly as possible!  I'll still be working from home so my desk and things will still be here...actually I don't think we have gotten me a printer to use yet, come to think of it. That might be kind of important to have!

And speaking of the new office, it is going to be about an hour away from our current home (like 5 minutes from where we hope our new home will be though). I am going to miss my hubby. ;(

We finally, finally got the kids' new birth certificates in the mail! I am listed as their mother, and Brian is listed as their father.  Is that crazy or what??? Now all I have to do is take them and the adoption decrees down to the SS office and get them new numbers and cards with their new names. Then I have to call everyone and their mother to update their information.  Sounds like a lot of work, right?  Not really looking forward to it, but better to get it out of the way now than later I guess.

I guess bio mom sent D a message on Facebook saying she moved to a town 5 hours away from here.  It's a place we visit at least once a year, and she has no family there and no job or anything. I have no idea what would make a person just randomly up and move so far away, especially without resources at their disposal. My initial thought was that maybe she is pregnant and going to have a baby, and doesn't want HHS to catch wind of it or something.  So maybe she thinks by going to another state she will be safe. I have really no reason to think that, but it certainly could be the case.

D was really upset about the move, but I kind of don't understand why. He hasn't seen her in 8 months now; whether she is near or far their relationship will be the same as it has been, know what I mean?  Maybe I am missing something though.

Oh Aaaannnnddddd we decided to take the Lamaze classes offered by the hospital, and I am going to take a one-day breastfeeding class too.  The Lamaze classes aren't until March 9 and 16, so hopefully this baby doesn't decide to try to come out early. If he does I feel like it will be OK, I just feel pretty at peace about the whole giving birth thing. I was really stressed about it for a while there, but I feel good about it now.  Not to say I won't feel awful about it in the middle of the thing, but at least going into it I have a positive attitude. :)

Aaaaand (last one) I am going to be 30 in 4 days! Wow! I am getting so old, for real.

  1. I have a son just a year older then D. I understand why he would be upset that his Mom moved so far away even though it doesn't change their relationship in the physical sense I think it does in his heart. Just a little bit more realization of where her prioities are and that she will not be his Mom again. That has to be so heart breaking to a kid, I can't even imagine the feeling of rejection:(

  2. I agree with the above comment about the situation with mom moving away. It'd just another stab in the heart. A reminder of the fact that he is not important enough to her.
    By the way....you are not old! :-)
