time for an update

Holy guacamole, it's almost been a month since my last post! Sheesh. I suppose that means I should probably write something, before I lose any more readers. Or before my mother shoots me... whichever comes first. Just so you know, my camera is full of pictures that I have yet to transfer from five months ago. So, no new pictures, just a boring post. Also, I've had a LOT on my mind lately. Here's just a sampling:

whining about...
1. just trying to stay alive right now. Last month was beastly and this month looks to be the same, but worse. We are officially broke. No cash, credit or loans left over to live on. It seems like we have nothing but debt. It sucks.
2. feeling sick, exhausted and starving. All the time. Not necessarily in that order, though...

dreaming about...
1. money, obviously. Because then we could pay rent + utilities. And then I could get this, this and this/this. Food would be nice, too.
2. a baby girl. Her name is Elizabeth Rae Summers, but she goes by Elsie-Rae. She has blue eyes and brown, wavy hair. She also sleeps through the night.

lucky about...
1. jobs. Even though we live from paycheck to paycheck, it's better than nothing. I am hyper aware of how blessed we really are.
2. being pregnant. I am just about 9 weeks along and am due late-mid-March (like, the 19th). A couple of weeks ago we had an ultrasound to rule out another ectopic pregnancy. Good news abounds, because the baby is indeed where it needs to be (my uterus)! We also got to see the tiny heart flutter and hear it beat, too. I just hope and pray that things continue to get better, and in seven months I'll have my baby! And yes, I would be perfectly happy if she turned out to be a he, instead ;) Oh, and I haven't thrown up yet. Definitely lucky about that!

And for what it's worth, I thought Breaking Dawn was awesome! It basically rocked my socks. Time to find a new obsession... *B

  1. Yay for the baby being in the right place!!! I'm dreaming of a baby girl too. I've had her name picked out for years. I'm not even pregnant yet... Better get working on that.

  2. Dreaming of babies is fun- though mine were of twins and boys and stuff. The twins were weird.

  3. I don't know that Breaking Dawn did any rocking for me, but I did like it! And I understand the whining and dreaming. Hang in there. There really is a someday!

  8. You have some big dreams my friend. If it's a girl, maybe I'll organize a cyber baby shower. Here's hoping. Let me know if you need anything that I can help you with.

    Just chiming in on BD. I didn't love it the first time but I thought it ended the right way. I decided to re-read it and I am really loving it the second time. I'm glad you are back. Keep feeling good and not throwing up!

  14. I so know how you guys are feeling! We're right there in the same $$ boat and it sucks. It's a great feeling to know how blessed we still are and I totally love your dreams of things you'd get! I love the houses.

    I'm glad you're not throwing up! That's the worst. I'm so excited to hear the baby is doing good!!! Oh and I had some issues w/ BD at first, but I'm liking it more now. I'm still waiting to hear about Comic Con.......and waiting.....and waiting...... LOL Love ya!

  15. On the bright side, you probably qualify for Medicaid... I'm wincing at the thought of the $3000 deductible I'd have to pay for another wee one...

  16. It sounds like this is going to be a busy year for you guys. Congrats on the baby though. I hope it looks as cute as I did. ;)

  17. I love the name Elizabeth! (Obviously...but mine's a Lizzie...) Here's hoping you get her here soon and safe and healthy. Or a boy, if that's what comes, but I hope it's your Elsie! Good luck with the pregnancy!
