I've been bad...

but I have a good excuse. Actually, excuses. I have been terribly busy and tired. I have been meaning to update my blog a lot sooner than this, but alas, I am bad!

So what has been keeping me busy.

*Work. The other full-time gal had her baby on April Fool's Day due to an emergency C-section. Mom and baby are both well. I'm happy to report that baby Aster got to go home on Easter Sunday. So we have been short-staffed. And I have been stressed to say the least. Good news now, my other co-worker who was on leave is now back, so I am a lot less stressed!!!

*Bruno. Bruno, you ask? Yes, Sean and I are officially insane. As if we didn't already have a lot of stuff going on this year (marriage, baby, moving, etc.) we decided to throw a puppy into the mix. We adopted Bruno almost 4 weeks ago. He is a very good puppy, as puppies go :) His birthday is the day after Sean's! So he is 4 1/2 months old. I figure this is about as good of training that we will get for the baby (without actually taking someone's baby). He has to go potty in the middle of the night, cries/whines a lot, and requires a lot of attention (and discipline). I will be posting pictures of Bruno later. Speaking of potty breaks in the middle of the night, I should point out that I sleep through those *blush*. Sean is such a great husband (or maybe he is just a much lighter sleeper than I am *laugh*) that he doesn't make his pregnant wife get up to take him out.

*Moving. No, we haven't moved yet. Sean and I decided that the house we were going to rent just wasn't a good idea for various reasons. We have found a different house in Frankfort. It required a bit of work (which may be an understatement), but Sean is doing all of the work himself. I'm optimistic that we may be able to "officially" move into the house this weekend. There will be a future post about this and pics to see the before and after.

*Being pregnant. I have been sick lately. And moody and tired. Now being pregnant doesn't make me stressed. In fact, I have probably been more pleasant than ever. Go figure! Just the stress doesn't help with the pregnancy. I am feeling a lot better today. I found out that Vicks Vapo Rub is okay to use when pregnant, so I slathered some on my feet and went to bed last night. Hopefully, one more night of that and I will be feeling like a million bucks!

So that is why I have been too busy/tired to post lately. My apologies!

Speaking of Little Bit (that is what I have been calling Baby Girl lately-since she still doesn't have a name), she has been a lot more active. I also look pregnant now. I will post some belly progression pics for your enjoyment in my next post. It is a pleasure to feel her move around and kick/punch me. I'm sure I will be complaining about the pain down the road, so I am enjoying it while I can :)

Til next time! Up next, pics of Bruno and my growing belly!
