24 Weeks

Not to much to report this week... Baby has been moving a lot! So cool!!! I have had an increase in acid reflux which kinda sucks. It makes it hard to fall asleep sometimes. I have been taking a bath almost every night before I go to bed. It helps relax my sore back, legs, feet etc.. and I tend to sleep better if I take a bath, So I do! I also went and treated myself to a pedicure today! I got to sit on one of those big over-sized massage chairs and it was heavenly...I almost fell asleep I was so relaxed.

We are getting a lot done as far as packing goes. My house constantly looks like a tornado went through it, even though I have a TON of stuff packed. I have piles going...this goes with the boys to NY, this is for the Family reunion, this is for my PC conference or show, then the infamous pile of "I don't know what to do with that, so just put it there." I noticed that it is getting harder for me to bend down for long periods of when packing boxes. My abdomen really starts to hurt after awhile. So I need to remember to sit down as much as possible while packing. Easier said than done. My kitchen is packed though, with the exception of some of my PC stuff. We are now living on paper plates, bowls, and cups. Less dishes to worry about right!

We are also just throwing a bunch of junk away. It amazes me how much stuff accumulates over just a couple of years. Stupid stuff... like coupons that we never used and expired a year ago, magazines that I never cut that recipe out of, the random lone sock that I probably threw the other match away, saved shopping bags from like bath and body works, starbucks, VS etc...
So we have several garbage bags scattered around the house and things are getting tossed left and right. It feels good to purge and get rid of junk but man my house looks like one big mess. It always seems to look worse before it gets better.

As for the Fourth of July weekend, Jason is running 15 miles Saturday morning. He is in the middle of training for the AF marathon. Then we are going to work on some straightening up and more packing. Then we haven't decided if we are going to go to a BBQ or go into ST. Louis to see John Legend at a free concert. I guess we will have to see how tired we are after all is said and done. On Sunday we are going to Church and then from there we are taking the Metro into STL for fair St. Louis and then fireworks on the levy at sundown! So it will be a long day but I am so looking forward to just chilling out downtown, eating some good food, playing in the downtown water park fountains and watching the fireworks!!! Good thing I have my sit and stand!!! YAY!!!

On Monday we are starting the whole house hunting process. We are going to spend a couple of days in OH looking at houses and apartments and hopefully make a decision and sign a lease while we are there. I am hoping that it is a stress free process, because that will be the only thing that we have to focus on. My mom is meeting us there to pick the boys up and she will be able to help us out for two days while we house hunt! So my fingers are crossed and I am hoping we can actually breath and relax for a couple of days!

Anyways, I think I am going to take a hot bath and then hit the hay, I am so exhausted. So much to do this weekend.
