A death.

Last night the Toothfairy died. Good riddance! That was the most STRESSFUL thing for me, sneaking down in the night, reaching under the pillow for the tooth and replacing it with money and slipping away unnoticed... Nevermind the lies one must tell if they forget!

Anyway, Austin has been pestering me for like a year about whether the toothfairy was real or not. Once he even wrote a note that needed a reply!! Then he would lose teeth and not tell us to see if she would come... alas she would not. So last night he started again and I confessed. Whew... I feel like a load was lifted.

Jackie's baby shower

Well first let me say that we got here ok. Jack cried in the car for about an hour at the half way point, probably because he didn't want to keep sitting confined in that car seat any longer but alas, he fell asleep for the rest of the way.

Today was Jackie's, my brother's girlfriend, baby shower. I don't know if I mentioned it before but she's having twins, twin boys but they are fraternal so they won't look alike. It was a great shower. I was there with my mom, my sister, her daughter Ainsley and Jack. Ainsley was a busy body, she was everywhere. Jack was good and in the end, ended up falling asleep in my arms.

The food was great and she got a TON of stuff! We got her a crib and crib mattress and I got her a ton of other things including bags of handed down clothes. She should be set for now.

I need to run, my mom is watching Jack and I need to feed him.

Going to PA

I'm leaving to go to Pennsylvania today, in just a couple hours at that so I don't have too much time to blog. I'm nervous about driving with the baby, I'm nervous about him crying. I still have a ton to do. I need to pack for myself and any last minute things I might remember. It should be a good visit home. I'll get to see my mom and dad and a bunch of people that I haven't seen in a while. I'll post more later.

So cool to be an Aunt again!

I realized while I was in the shower that my short marriage to Bill, 1yr and 5mos, has already been longer than my marriage to ex. It's sad but it's true. Ex came to me after 1yr and 3mos and told me that he was content but not happy. I asked him to explain that to me because I thought that content was a state of happy and he told me that when someone is [only] content that's why they cheat. Boy, I didn't even see that huge red flag. I knew something happened that weekend while I was gone but I couldn't get him to admit to anything until years later when he had nothing left to lose by telling the truth. Scum. I loved him whole heartedly which I why I always said that he would never find a woman better than me, not because there aren't good women out there but because NO ONE would love him like I did. All of this is water under the bridge. I'm happy now with my new life. It just wanted to put my realization out there.

I should know better.

I jumped the gun a bit in my "ovulation" post. I should know better than to assume ovulation based on one temperature. As you guessed, I did not ovulate, the temperature must've been a fluke. So, that's it for that. I didn't miss a thing.

This morning I went to get Austin and when no one showed up, I started calling. Here I thought that his dad was getting Austin for a week after we went to PA but it was the week before - this week. Man. I woke up Jack and everything. I could've slept in. Oh well.
