Our new indoor swimming pool (a.k.a. our basement)

January 26, 2010

Happy Birthday Honey! Yesterday was my husband’s birthday…and how did he spend his birthday? In the basement which was flooded from all the rain we were having, and the water was still gushing in along the center seam of our concrete floor. Poor guy. I had gone down to our semi-furnished basement (office, sewing area, computers, small den, oy) to get some checks out of the filing cabinet and was greeted with an 1″ of standing water. For a fleeting second I almost considered not telling Travis and letting him get on with a normal birthday, but then I looked over at his work bench with all his tools…

I ended up calling my father-in-law who came over and the two men worked downstairs all morning, only stopping for a quick coffee break and a change of dry clothes. Meanwhile, life went on upstairs, Finny was running around like a  madman and Mommy was busy making a devil’s food cake with peanut butter icing and chocolate butter cream icing for Daddy’s birthday cake.

Mom and Dad Carey’s gift for Travis arrived just in the nick of time to brighten my poor water logged hubby’s day. Later in the afternoon he was busy playing his new Wii Sports Resort game to great applause from the wee man. We finished off the evening with dinner at one of my hubby’s favorite restaurants with his parents and cake at our house. Shortly after we bathed Finny, puttered around in the basement a bit more, showered, and crashed. Phew! Travis told me he hoped my birthday wasn’t this “exciting”. Me too!

Happy Birthday Travis!

Oh and yes, that very tall, skinny, and beautiful teenager standing to the right is Elizabeth. I can hardly believe it myself. Oh and the toddler there, yep, Finny, can’t believe that one either. The fat pregnant lady is me of course. ;o) That handsome good looking man holding the birthday cake is the birthday boy.

Mmmmm, cake.


A hormonal pregnancy day

January 19, 2010

Today is one of those days. One of those days where I just feel completely off and can’t put my finger on why. I feel tired, restless, I feel like I could cry at the drop of a hat. Ah pregnancyhormones, you do make life interesting. I am just not me today, and I really wish that I was as I have a lot I’d like to get done. Bleargh.

Hi there!

January 6, 2010

Not really sure where to start as it’s been so long. Nothing’s really changed and nothing exciting has happened. Still pregnant, still enjoying being the mom of a little boy and a teenage girl. We were all sick before, during, and after Christmas. The creeping crud has really been hard to kick.

Anywho, Finnigan is getting ridiculously big…and as soon as I find the card reader I will prove it to you. He’s a very busy little boy and keeps me busy and tired as well. We finally got the living room unChristmassed and life is returning to normal. Aaaah, that’s better. I can concentrate on more important things now…like knitting. Travis bought me a pair of Signature Arts Needles for Christmas. Wowsa, I feel like I’m knitting with a pair of Ferrari’s. Oh, and as an aside, I asked for the middy point and I’m glad I did, I can’t imagine the stilleto. The middy is very pointy. I’ll bet the stilleto would be great for lace though.
