The Newsletter is done! It's turned into distribution, and hopefully all that work will come to fruition.
No, that's not the announcement.
Therapy last night was awesome. We talked a lot about how I have this overwhelming desire to please everyone --how I care way too much how people view me. This leads to stress because the time I spend caring so much about people (who probably aren't even thinking about me) could be spent doing better things --like thinking about my children instead. The problem is that I already know this. I know I shouldn't care so much. I know I waste my time doing things that aren't important (long-term). But changing my habits and actions are harder than it looks. So, I'm going to start small. Wish me luck!
Oh, and no, that's not the announcement.
I finally got the London pictures downloaded and I was planning on a blog post today (I still might), but then I may not have as much time as I was hoping for blogging today. #2 was sick on Tuesday --she's finally better, but #3 and #4 were both throwing up last night. So, today will be sick-kid duty for me. I'm still trying to figure out how I can run two simple errands with two sick boys, though. Not sure how it's going to work, but I really have to run these errands. Maybe I should ask somebody that doesn't mind being exposed to a possible stomach flu to watch them while I run them?
Sigh. Yeah. Not gonna happen.
Not the announcement!
We're having an inversion here in Utah Valley (and around most of Utah, I guess). The air quality is so bad that the kids are being kept inside during recess. This doesn't help my asthma, especially since I've run out of daily meds and that's one of the errands I needed to run today. I'm seriously praying for snow (lots of it), so the inversion will leave. It's worse than LA smog, people, I'm tellin' ya!
And now, for the real announcement. The one you've all been waiting for! Maybe.
I'm just about 13 weeks and the due date is August 2nd. This means all kinds of things:
1. I was pregnant during my last "whine, whine, I wanna be pregnant" post.
2. My exhaustion has been explained.
3. Lots of other stuff I'll blog about later (like why I believe this is our last child, and #1's hilarious --and depressing --reaction to the announcement).
So, yay for me! I'm happy about this (very happy), although right now, with #4 needing a diaper change and #3 moaning on the floor, I wonder why just a little bit!
