Hang with Me

P talk - just warning - skip to the white
Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes and Congratulating our Newest Member of the Blue team. We are so excited to be able to re-use all of the cute blue things! I have been asked a few times if I was disappointed that I am not going to be able to celebrate with Pink - and honestly, I am not at all. Not in the least. In fact, I really didn't ever believe I was carrying a member of the pink team. Every time I heard it, I laughed .. and thought to myself ... We'll show them!

I am intrigue how completely different this pregnancy is from MT's though. I would be willing to say that Everything is different. My sleeping or lack there of (Hello Insomnia), my nausea (that sill lingers on), my tiredness, my aches/pains, my hormones (that are taking over), my patience's, etc. Everything just feels so out of control/sorts and different. To answer the Name question: No, Of course not, We do not have a name picked out yet. We are working on it. It's going to take months, I am pretty sure of that

This should be entitled "Why I am such a craptastic blogger friend"

  • I have mentioned my mom before, Well, She is not doing well. Things got severely bad about 5 weeks ago and We had to deal with that. My dad just can't do it on his own, So I try to step up and help out. It is still not much better than when it started 5 weeks ago ... but hopefully we are on the right track with her and She will be doing much better soon. To top it off, they have found cancer cells on one of her biopsies. So in a few weeks, I have to go with her to get more tests done and some more skin grafts
  • Teething - Really, I hate to even have to include this on my blog ever again but it seems that Teething is our "thing". Poor MT, He just cannot handle it. AT.ALL. Medicated up and all, I see no relief. I tried the Hyla.nd's teething tablets, they made him vomit all over. .. Not sure what else to say about that - It sucks Royally.
  • New work schedules - We will soon be adjusting to E's new work schedule that will leave me and MT on our own for months basically. This is scaring the bejezzess out of me. Because of this, I had to quit my p/t job for now. I am hoping to figure out, at some point, How to manage working a job outside of the house into this life of mine.
  • Adjusting to my 22 yr old BIL living with us. WOW, the challenge that this causes could honestly be it's very own post. I am just trying to not sweat the small stuff, keep the language and such at a G rating - and failing miserably. Things are going to have to be discussed at length, I can see this coming. We have tried by making comments to him about it - but I think we are going to have to make some ground rules .... He always has a comment back to our comments - and remember He was raised by my MIL - not the best Role Model. And certainly not the best example of how I like things to go down at my house.

I am trying my best to stay afloat and keep up with everyone - but honestly - Not doing a great job at that at all ... Hang with me, Don't give up on me commenting, This too shall pass ... and I will be afloat again soon.

Each day is its own adventure. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I will be praying for her and all of you during this period of lots of adjustments.

Meghan said...

Yikes, so sorry you are dealing with so much right now. I'll keep your mom and your family in my thoughts. And I'm sorry this pregnancy is tougher than MT. I wonder if it's because you're stuck chasing a toddler all the time ;)

My Reality said...

I hope things all smooth over. And I hope your mom is doing ok.

Jen said...

Blech. You let me know when you are good for a lunch venting session and I will be there.

I keep wondering if I can't have Elizabeth's teeth brought in surgically just to get the whole thing over with in one swoop. (She has been teething on and off for two months and still has NO TEETH.)

Christy said...

I'll always hang with you . . . you're just kinda stuck with me like that!

I think you are doing a great job of things right now. But remember, you don't have to hold it all together all the time. Allow yourself to just be how you are going to be at any moment. I know, easier said than done.

Hanging with you. Farah, you are always there for everyone, so if you need people to be there for you right now you should let us be there and not worry about it one bit. It sounds like you have a TON going on right now, but so happy that you have a moment to post. Sending very positive thoughts of endurance and strength your way. Hang in there...

Sorry about your Mom. I really hope things improve on that front. And, the house guest...that can't be easy on a pregnant gal! Hang in there, sister. Really hope MT gets through the teething soon.

Oh, Farah, you know I love you so very much and wish I lived closer so we could see each other in person and I could give you a BIG hug.

Kim said...

You certainly have a lot going on!

I'll be thinking of you.

Delenn said...

Sounds like you have tons on your plate! Maybe you can get BIL to help around the house in exchange for privaledges? Sorry about your mom.

Here's hoping for some smooth transitions!

Caro said...

Wow that's a lot of stuff going on. Hang in there.

I'm a little late to the commenting party here, so I hope things have improved since this post! I think you should definitely set ground rules with your BIL; he is living in YOUR house.
Hugs!
