Keep on Truckin

Thanks for all the well wishes. Makenna decided to grace us with her first sleepless night last night, so LP and I are recovering. He has taken several weeks off of work so he and I will be able to conquer the sleeplessness together, thank goodness. Plus, well hell I'm used to not sleeping so it's all old hat to me. And now that I'm able to sleep on my belly, that just makes life all that much better.

We got rid of both the older girls last night and LP took me out for sushi. Yum, of course it was absolutely delicious. I got the caterpillar roll (eel, avocado, cucumber) and the dragon roll (oh, more eel, cucumber and avocado!). Then I came home and ate about 5 of those Ferrera Rocher with great gusto and we rented "The Break Up" that we both enjoyed.

Life is good!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope all of your holidays are bright this week. We certainly have a blessing in our lives to be thankful for.

Saturday would be alright

Happy Feet was cute, but sort of hodge podge. I recommend waiting for the DVD. It was looooong.

We went to a trivia night with some friends last night, I thought I was going into labor but to no avail. I ended up re-visiting the spinach and artichoke dip they served. Yes, it was very disgusting. I highly recommend not doing that to anyone in their 40th week of pregnancy.

So Monday morning I'll be at the hospital, bright and early, to be chemically induced. Just like the other two. No chance of me going into labor and having Zack Morris deliver my baby in an elevator, which, in reality, is how I always envisioned my birth to play out.

Doesn't everyone?

Stick to the Status Quo

Membranes: Sufficiently stripped. (didn't hurt too bad!)

Cramping: None.

Attempts at 'other' labor inducing activities: Several.

Attempts working: None.


Going to go see "Happy Feet" tonight with the girls. Maybe that'll do the trick.

once again Blogger is making my posts disappear. Odd.

Final Countdown!!

Still here...go to the doctor on Thursday though. She said she would 'strip my membranes' to help out...I never had this done before but I'm willing to try. I've heard it hurts like a mother but, I'd like to BE a mother soon so I may just have to do it. I'm quite aware that LABOR itself hurts so we can just assume I'll be in pain sometime during the next week.

I'm gonna go get me a pedicure today.

In the meantime enjoy the Sushi Challenge. I love the fact that the Sushi Chef's name is George.

whoa horsie!!

I can't even begin to tell you the chaos that was last week. I remember saying on Halloween to one of my friends, "Well, at least I can say tomorrow is a new day." Unfortunately the day after wasn't much better.

I'm not kidding! Let me give a snippet of the events that occurred last week. My youngest fell on her head while wearing a hair clip and had it lodged inside her melon, my eldest ran into a wall and bruised her leg and couldn't walk, the mom of the fam we usually go trick-or-treating with had a meltdown and said her husband was leaving her and just started crying right then and there...WHILE we were trick-or-treating...I've somehow caught the flu bug and haven't been able to breathe properly all week.

Remember, that was a snippet. There was a whole bundle of other schmidt that went down.

Oh, and I had not once, not twice but three times had some one tell me they wanted to sit by me so 'they can look skinny'.

I had a bit of a breakdown myself yesterday and cried for a half an hour. LP didn't know what to do with me. I couldn't stop, no matter how I tried. (Did I mention I NEVER CRY???) I completely freaked my kids out. They are sufficiently scarred now.

And TKW, you should be happy to know that since I no longer can wear any of my shoes due to puffiness, I am still wearing flip flops, well beyond November 1st. In your honor, my dear.

But there is hope for a better week this week. We went and bought Makenna a dresser today and have finally put up her crib, so she is ready to join our fam. So all is on the up and up. Yesterday while at Target I saw a Cabbage Patch doll named "Makenna Piper". I figured it was a sign to let my husband have his way, so I think we may change her middle name from Elizabeth to Piper. I can live with that. And no, I didn't buy the doll, I guess I should.

Even though the girls totally got screwed on the Halloween bit this year (hello, they did not get ONE Reese's cup OR a Butterfinger. WTF!) they looked great and were able to at least enjoy dressing up. I promised them next year we would have the Halloween of all Halloweens and they would be the envy of all their friends.
Or at least dammit, I'll buy them the mongo Sam's club bag of Reese's cups.
