Random Rantings and a Day Off!

It's been a week since I last blogged. I guess I am still a bloggy slacker... BUT I do have A LOT of excuses. *wink, wink*

1. Being pregnant is exhuasting.
2. Morning sickness
3. Second and third graders have a lot of homework.
4. My husband's "busy season" has begun.
5. Flag football every Thursday.
6. Our weekends have been jammed-packed!

Ok, well that's only six excuses, but they are all legitimate! =)

Next topic.

I've been having the crazy, vivid pregnancy dreams lately. Last night I dreamt I was a doctor and then delivered my own baby! Two nights ago I dreamt John & I bought a house with my stepson's mother and fiance and I kept getting stuck doing all the dishes.

I wonder what those dreams mean? If you analyze dreams, by all means let me know what these crazy dreams mean!

Next topic.

Have you ever had a close family member that totally crossed a line? I won't go into details, but a couple of weeks ago I had a close family member make some statements that truly offended my husband and me. I haven't talked to her since. Although she apologized to my husband she has not apologized to me. Maybe she doesn't realize how hurtful her statements were?

I'm sure over time I will just get over it. But this particular family member gets away with making hurtful remarks like that to various family members quite often and I am just tired of walking on eggshells around her. She's one of those people who can dish it, but can't take it. How do you handle situations like that? I'm not a very confrontational person unless I really have to be...

I have the day off today!!

Today is Columbus Day and one of the perks of being a state employee is having Columbus Day off. The reason this is so awesome is b/c the kiddos have school! That's right - I'm home and the kiddos are not here today! But it's not a totally free day for me. I do want to get some major cleaning done today - or at least some moderate cleaning...

I need to at least vacuum, but I really should run the carpet steam cleaner too... I need to straighten up the kitchen, but I really should do the hardwood floors and the stainless steel... I need to do some light dusting, but I really should do some heavy dusting...

What I really want to do? Nap. Nap and watch A Baby Story.

It's not quite noon and I have until three before the kiddos get home so I better get busy!

During my first 3-5 months of pregnancy I had INSANE dreams. One of them involved Shrek at my house. Yup. hehehehe Hope it gets easier on you!

I always have rape dreams. All 4 pregnancies. Ick. Guess I feel a little violated by the little person taking over my body?

Hope you'll be able to blog soon, but totally understand. Miss ya!

Let me guess, did the person say something about your pregnancy that was inappropriate? I have had THE most inappropriate stuff said to me, especially this time around. It's mind boggling.

Glad to hear you are hanging in there...I'm slacking too.

Well I love love love my father but each time he visits he insults me. This past weekend I got 3 negative comments about my latest hair cut :)

Hope you feel better soon. I had a dream I was pregnant at 53. Awful dream as I have 3 sons and want to get on with my own life after raising kids. Good thing each stage in life is meant to be. Good luck, and one good thing about getting older, is realizing that it's them. and not you. So don't allow "them" to bother you.

Hello Lindsey!
I think stress-free is the way to go for you right now. Try turning the other cheek and falling back on a sense of humor. You can't pick your family, it is what it is and they are who they are.
Surround yourself with terrific friends you have chosen, and try not to take family too seriously. You're stuck with them, likely can't change them, and might as well make Thanksgiving bearable. :)
Take care of yourself, and be happy! You're finally pregnant, what else really matters?
