Not a lot to say

I wish my blog wasn't so boring, but I have just not been in the blogging mood. Is it being pregnant that just makes me feel so blah? I think so and it's rather unfortunate to have such a feeling for such a long period of time. I really wish that human babies didn't need nine whole months to get ready to be born, but obviously that is not changing anytime soon. Anyway, just to add a new post to my page and to give me something to do (as if I really need that) this posting will be compiled of a few random thoughts. Let's all hope it turns out to be something worth reading. :)

Spencer has just a few more weeks left before graduation on May 15. His time in school has really gone by fast. He'll be starting work a week and a half after that. Can you believe it?? Now we just need to find a perfect interim housing situation. What will make it perfect? Basically if it's cheap and not scary and not a terrible distance from his job. Oh, and if me and the kids can join him a couple weeks after he gets there without having to move into a hotel till our house is done. Then it will really be perfect. The less we have to spend on interim housing the more we have to put towards other things. And really, who doesn't want all sorts of new things when they move into a new house? Not only are there things we'll want, there will be some definite needs too. Like a washer and dryer. And a fridge. And a lawn mower. You get the idea.

Madeleine is a reading queen. For school they get to pick out books to take home and read 3 times before bringing them back to school to be quizzed on them. Our new favorites are the Pigeon books. So far she's read Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, The Pigeon Wants a Puppy and The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog. They are such funny books! If you haven't read them, you should check them out.

Ian is an obsessed Lego ship builder. Give that kid a handful of Legos and he can come up with all sorts of different ship configurations. It's quite a talent, I'd say. If I had a fully functioning camera I would post a picture of some of his creations, but since I don't you'll just have to take my word for it.

As for me, like I said, I've been feeling really blah practically for the last 6 months straight. Although I am very excited about all the upcoming changes for our family, I'm probably not expressing that excitement as well as I could. So what do I do with myself? Besides constantly looking online for different things I want to buy after we get into our house, I daydream about being able to workout like I used to and making measurable progress once I have the baby. Oh yeah, and I need to find an OB/GYN when we move down there and that might prove to be a challenge. I've never moved during a pregnancy before so I didn't know what to expect, but I talked to one doctor who doesn't accept new patients who are past 22 weeks. (I'll probably be around 34 weeks by the time we get down there.) Luckily I spoke with another doctor who will at least look over my file and determine if they will take me on. That sounds promising, right? I'm not too worried. I'm sure it will work out just fine.

I looked through the pictures on this computer to see if there were any old ones I could put on here to make this post a little more interesting, but no luck. Most of our pictures are on our other computer which is pretty much down and out right now. Too bad.
