None of my clothes fit me. Patiently waiting for an awesome paycheck to buy some extras. Im getting a little impatient….I really want to know what we’re having. Im starting school soon and have been really tired. Hopefully I will have energy soon without needing caffiene. We dont have a scale otherwise I would update how much I weigh. Not too much else going on.
So, on top of trying to get on track financially I’m also focusing on getting on and keeping a schedule for me and the boys. Im starting classes in October and need to be ahead of the game. It’s going to be a little harder to keep the boys on a schedule because of our schedule with friends. Our bible group is at 6:30 and one thing I wanted to keep up was a bedtime routine starting at 7. Small things aren’t gonna get in my way though. I know when the boys on doing a routine everyday they behave better, and I am more active with them. I wrote up a learning schedule, with electives, that we started today and it seemed to have went well.
Harmony dropped off some maternity clothes yesterday. Until that point my clothes were so small and uncomfortable I hated myself. I felt fat and disgusting, but now, with just the one maternity shirt I’m wearing with some leggings I feel amazing and beautiful again. I have to remember that pregnancy is gonna change a lot of things about my body, as well as my emotions and other areas. It helps that I do have some energy back and haven’t been vomiting as much as I was. I think this pregnancy will go by fast.
One thing I’m trying to focus on lately is those little things that someone does for me; in this case, her giving me some extra clothes. I tend to focus on the things about people that annoy me and I distance myself from them, but to remind myself of the little extra unnecessary actions people take can really make a difference in my friendships/relationships.
So thanks to all of my friends who have brought me a redbull on their way over. Or stopped by because you knew I was home all day bored. Those really mean a lot. Though Im pretty convinced no one is actually reading my blogs I still want to say it.
So Mike and I have gotten really far behind on our budget since he had those 2 weeks off for summer vacation. We spent way too much instead of saving what we made. So now, I’m setting a 3 and half month goal to get back on track (not using any student loan money). I want to be AT LEAST a month ahead on bills and start making payment arrangements for the 6 things on our credit by January. We have to use our tax return for a van and make a large car payment so we can get it paid off quicker. I think this is a responsible route and Im happy to have set these goals. By the time baby 3 gets here we will be right where we need to be.
I forgot about the 3 weeks we have off in December…crap.
I know John and Vicky will be wanting Mike to work. Maybe I can budget from that. I will have to spend some quality time with God about this. He has blessed us with a steady income and I want to prove that I can make this work. (Thanks God).
On a different note….
I have been staying on track this week and last with our bible group. Im glad it was set up. It’s really helping. I still have to wake up and pray that God will continue to give me strength to proceed. It seems lame to pray for that…but I have to. One thing that really stood out to me this week was ‘Be patient with one another, making allowance for each others faults because of your love.’ (Eph. 4:2) Plus a few more. But I need to keep this in mind.
So this is me at 12 weeks. I will e posting pictures on here instead of Facebook because some people may get offended at me showing my body. I am 14 weeks now, the weeks go up on Fridays. I am starting to feel better. I hope to only gain 10 lbs in this pregnancy. Hoping for much support from family and friends in doing so.
For those who are interested in me and saw this on my facebook. This is my blog. I will be telling people about myself and whats going on in my life, jobs, school, parenting, friends, family, etc. Enjoy 🙂
