&^@%!$!$^&( WordPress, y’all

Ok – I am sorry to do this – but…I quit wordpress!

I just hate it. I hate coming to my blog, because I hate the design, I hate the look…. and how sad is that?  This is supposed to be my little space. I want to like it.

I can’t figure out my pics, my widgets, my fonts, my design…it is so user UNfriendly to me.  Last night my husband (who designs computer networks for large corporations – boy knows his way around a computer) sat down to try to help me figure it out.  His words?  “Honey, this is like…greek”.

AH HA!

I am not dumb, WordPress is just…hard.

We figured out one way to improve things…PAY for an upgrade.  Um. No.

So yea, I am moving back to Blogger.

AFTER ALL THAT HUBBUB!

I know.

I am sorry.

The only advantage to WordPress is that I can password protect some posts – but ya know what?  By now, the point is moot.  I know I will be more careful about venting posts, and that brouhaha is over anyway.

SO.

Please come back with me to Blogger?

Sorry I am a pain.

34 Weeks

How Far Along? 34 Weeks
How I’m Feeling Overall: Tired.  And OUT OF BREATH.  Constantly.  We have a fridge in the basement for extra storage – one trip up and down those stairs and I am wheezing for the next 30 minutes.  Pathetic.
Maternity Clothes? Yes.  I am huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge and waddling.
Stretch Marks? None. *knock on wood*
Sleep? Pretty good, except having to get up 54 bajillion times to pee.
Best Moment of the Week? Everything is done- I even got my hospital bag packed.  I am READY.
Movement? Yes, she is a feisty little miss.
Food Cravings/Aversions? Eating is depressing.  That is all.
What I miss? Having a strong healthy active body.
What I’m looking forward to? Her being here.  OUT.  Alive.
Weekly Wisdom:  I think I can officially consider this the home stretch now, right?
Milestones:  I can’t see my feet. I can’t shave my hoo-ha.  My husband has to tie my shoes. Yep, I am pregnant all right.
Emotions? Kind of grumpy, I won’t lie. I feel so out of shape and get tired so easily, and eating is no longer pleasurable.  I can’t wait for a big giant frosty milkshake.

: D

In other news, I STILL cannot figure out how to change the font in WordPress, and this teenie weenie font sucks.

Great, kid.

So, Mr. Man has given up naps.

Just… quit.

Cold turkey.

One day -napping 3 hours.  The next – REFUSES to lie down, refuses to stay in bed, refuses to rest. Refuses.

And short of bonking him over the head with a baseball bat, stapling him to his bed, or drugging him… NOT much I can do about it.

To say this is bad timing is, well, an understatement.  I am exhausted and fully round and preggers, and I COUNTED on that time to take a nap myself.  Augh!

We are trying forced “quiet time” in his room.  He has to stay in his room to play quietly so I at least get a breather.

Plenty of people suggested letting him watch a movie but a.) there is no way in hell I am putting a tv in his room at age 3, b.) the only other place would be his playroom which is also attached to the kitchen and packed with loud toys – which defeats the purpose of ME having some time to rest or start dinner or whatever and c.) I just don’t think I want him glazed over into tv time any more than the little bit he gets to watch in the morning.  I really think he needs to be in his room – with no electronics.  Playing or reading.  QUIETLY.

However.

Wanna see what he did in his room today?

Yea – I am really not enjoying this no napping stuff.

I scolded him and made him help me clean it all up – but he really didn’t seem to get it.

Not sure what to do here.  Kids should come with a manual.

Thoughts?

EDITED: I really appreciate the thoughts and suggestions!  Keep em comin’!  I did want to add though – I think he might really be done with naps – he sleeps 12 hours at night . There are days that he has swimming lessons AND Little Gym class – BOTH before nap and STILL …no nap!  Ack!  He should be exhausted, but nope.  So it is not a lack of activity.  Maybe as the weather gets better – fresh air will drug him?  Waa.

32 Weeks!

How Far Along? 32 Weeks
How I’m Feeling Overall: Tired.  And OUT OF BREATH.  I am sometimes panting and out of breath – um, while just sitting on the couch.  Baby girl must be pushing against my diaphragm.  I am exhausted probably because it takes a lot of effort just to breathe!  Phewwww.
Maternity Clothes? Yes.  I am huge. (heh heh)
Stretch Marks? None. *knock on wood*
Sleep? Not so hot.  And Little Man has chosen THIS precise time to decide he no longer wants a nap during the day.  Which means I don’t get a nap.  Drat.
Best Moment of the Week? Biophysical profile – got a pretty nice shot of her face – not 3D but still cool!  Also, Grandma sent an itsy bitsy teenie weenie pink fishie BIKINI and it is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen in my LIFE!!!!
Movement? Yes, I get a lot of WALLOPS and BINGITY BANGITY’s.  It is crazy how my tummy bounces.  I have tried to catch it on video but she does not like paparazzi.
Food Cravings/Aversions? Eating is still a chore.  I have a giant list of things I want to eat as soon as she is born.  My husband is going to be driving around the state fulfilling my every food desire!
Gender? GIRL!
What I miss? Um, breathing?
What I’m looking forward to? Her being here.  OUT.  Alive.
Weekly Wisdom:  I am entering home stretch territory.
Milestones:  Baby is the size of a jicama – (I have never seen a jicama, where does BabyCenter GET this stuff?) and she has HAIR now.  I am so curious if she will be a redhead like her brother.
Emotions? Not too bad – being tired and breathless and waddling and heavy can make me a little grumpy, but I think I am doin’ ok!

: D

ouchie

in my world – pregnancy equals a lotta needles!

time to cart these to the RE.

yeesh!

 

 

30 Weeks!

How Far Along? 30 Weeks
How I’m Feeling Overall: Tired.  And huge.  Like a huge tired big huge out of breath huge person.
Maternity Clothes? Yes.  I am huge. (heh heh)
Stretch Marks? None. *knock on wood*
Sleep? Horrible. Gotta pee all the time, and my hips hurt.  But I know it will be even worse when I have a newborn, so what can ya do?

 

Best Moment of the Week? Pediatrician thinks Nate had Parvo Virus (very BAD for preggers) so we had a rough few days waiting on my blood test results.  Best moment of the week was finding out I am already immune and no worries for my little girl.  WHAT IMMENSE RELIEF!

Movement? Yes, I get a lot of WALLOPS and BINGITY BANGITY’s.  It is crazy how my tummy bounces.  I have tried to catch it on video but she does not like paparazzi.

Food Cravings/Aversions? At this point – eating is a chore.  I want sweets SO BAD AUGH, and if I see one more egg I will die, but the easiest protein for breakfast is….eggs.  *gag*
Gender? GIRL! 

What I miss? Sweets, coffee, bloody mary, big fat dirty martini, blue cheese, CEREAL with LOTS of milk and SUGAR.
What I’m looking forward to? Her being here.  OUT.  Alive.
Weekly Wisdom:  I am entering home stretch territory.
Milestones:  Baby is the size of a cabbage and I feel like if I can just make it a few more weeks – we are in the safety zone.

Emotions? Not too bad lately actually.  It was a rough week with the whole parvo virus thing – but otherwise I am doin’ ok.
