Are we just reinfecting eachother??

Zoe and Oren both threw up yesterday. Well... Zoe happened after midnight so I guess technically it was today, but whatever.

Oren was totally fine the entire day. Fixed him some food. He was fine.
Gave him one candy corn pumpkin and go to the bathroom. All of a sudden I hear Zoe screaming and crying.
Come out and the boy threw up EVERYWHERE. Chunks all over himself and on the floor and BLEH.
He wasn't freaked out at all, but Zoe had actually climbed on to the back of the loveseat to get away from the little bit of vomit that was on the seat lol.

So darn gross.

I HAD to clean the carpets after that. I wasn't about to cook dinner, clean carpets and whatever else. It was one or the other and I picked the carpets. We have enough food and DH has working hands and legs. He could fend for himself.

But finally... FINALLY the carpet in the living room has been cleaned and it's glorious!! Most of the food stains came right up and OMG YES! It's so nice to look down and not see nasty looking carpet. SO NICE.

Anyway...

Zoe wwas acting normal too. Then I wake up to her crying and go check and she's thrown up. Get her cleaned up and go back to bed, about 2 hours later, get woken up again by her crying b/c she threw up again.
Sigh.....

So yeah... I dunno if we're all just kind of reinfecting eachother with this bug or if it's just lingering or what but this crap needs to stop already.
I'm still feeling slightly bleh in the tummy. I still can''t drink a lot of water without it making me feel nauseated and I guess the kids probably feel the same way too.

Ezra also spit up a few times before bed last night.... all on me after I just took a shower. Of course...
Sigh...
It wasn't a lot though thankfully.
____

Can I just say how much I love the show Jane the Virgin?? Yeah it's SO ridiculous at times, but it's still SO GOOD lol. I'm only watching it on Netflix.
Only thing that bugs me is how easily and quickly Jane jumps from guy to guy and how easy it is for her to just drop a guy.
Anyway... great funny, touching show. Love it!

And so excited to start Luke Cage today! WOO!

Alrighty... gotta pump. My supply is still really hurting right now, but I'm trying my best to squeeze out every drop of milk I can out of these saggy milk jugs :P rofl

Thursday, September 29, 2016

It's not even noon....

I am so done with this day. Woke up feeling drained. Even though I was exhausted after pumping, I couldn't get back in to that good restful sleep so basically lost about 3 more hours of much needed sleep.
Yesterday was awful too. I just got sicker and sicker. Thankfully no more throwing up, but there were a couple of times where I thought I would. Just felt light headed and awful all day yesterday and could barely drink anything so was dehydrated so my milk supply is just taking another hit.
I still feel sick today, but thankfully so far, not as bad as yesterday. Going to try my best to drink more, but it still feels like I can't stomach a lot of liquids.

Oren is also not 100% yet. Got him up and he was crusty with throw up. Happened some time during the night /shrugs
He's acting pretty normal, but he was yesterday too..... even though he didn't nap at all which ticked me off.

And Ezra this morning has been a little nightmare. Started off well enough, but I swear his fighting sleep is driving me damn crazy and just drains me completely. Just spent a good 30 mins trying to get him to settle down and sleep already. He's finally sleeping now but who knows for how long. He cat naps quite a bit which I know is contributing with his irritability.

Oh AND Oren had some nasty poop which just reaffirms that he's still somewhat sick.

Uuuuuuuugh...... just feeling done and overwhelmed and yeah..... just ugh right now. This momma needs a nice LONG nap.... or another giant piece of cake. Sigh... I want more cake.... and sleep.

Zoe has thankfully been great this morning. Yay for that at least lol.
She was a bit weak still yesterday, but she managed to eat and drink without throwing up once the entire day. So glad for that :)

Being a momma is so hard sometimes. Yeah yeah.. it is all worth it, but that doesn't make these difficult moments any less difficult.

Better but not 100%

So Oren is better. Not completely 100% yet but better thankfully.
I'm also much better but still getting some nausea and blah feeling. Difficult trying to re-hydrate since drinking too much water causes the nausea to come back. I'm slowly getting fluids back though.
My milk supply has definitely dropped, but hopefully that will pick back up once health is back to normal.

Zoe is a little better today. She didn't get as sick as Oren, but still couldn't keep much down. My poor girl :(
She's keeping water and crackers down today though, but is still snoozing off and on. So still low energy and I'm sure wouldn't be able to eat much more than that.

Ezra... I THINK might have it, but it's very mild with him. He's spitting up a little more than usual, but it's only just a little bit so it's hard to say if this is the stomach bug or if it's just reflux or something else.
He is still fighting sleep like crazy. Doesn't help when Oren or Zoe get in his face every chance they get.
It's so sweet that they want to interact with him, but also really frustrating when he finally gets to sleep only for one of them to get up in his face and wake him up.

Oren is currently yelling for me in his crib even though he should be napping. Sigh... he'll fall asleep eventually. Just hate the whining :P lol UGH his whining is driving me frickin crazy. It's just annoying as hell b/c he says whatever he's saying the exact same way every single time so it's like a broken record and just grates on my nerves. I sound so loving right now lol. I love my big headed little dude, but he needs to shush and go so sleep!

So far DH seems to have dodged the bug, but still plenty of time and opportunity at home to catch it.
Not that I want him to get sick or anything lol.
____

I think once Ez is out of the super dependent newborn stage or at least is sleeping on a more regular schedule... I'm gonna start making the frame things again.
We could really use the money that I'm HOPING this idea could make (even if it's just a little), and plus it would be nice to make my own money and contribute financially to the household. I know money isn't everything and raising and taking care of the kids is just as important. I just want to help out if I can.
Just feels like DH has a lot of stress sometimes when it comes to the bills and wanting to do things but we're not able to b/c we don't have the extra funds and need to save.

Say for instance.. The friends we visited when we went on the road trip... they want to go on a road trip to Maine. So would we, but they want to do it next summer.
Uh.. nope... at least that's my answer. We would love to go.. in maybe 2 years from now, but we really need to build our savings back up which is going to take at least a year. And we really need to get some house things done.. like DH's shed for the back yard and the back porch.
Well I guess those things don't need to be done, but neither does another expensive road trip either.
And speaking of the trip for a moment...
They want to stop in every big city along the way. Me? NOPE!! It took us like 2 hours to get out of Chicago on our way home. The hell if I want to do that shit again over and over and over again. We live close enough to the coast that we could just do a nice coastal areas road trip all the way up north. How nice would that be?
Well, probably not so nice if we do go next summer with a not even 1yo along with 2 other kids. I can imagine that Ez would be just as bad as Oren was w/ the screaming and crying. That was not fun.

So anyway... my vote is NO on another road trip or any big trip that soon b/c of money and b/c of Ezra.
We'll see what happens. DH knows how I feel and he knows I'm right, but I can just see in his eyes that he wants to go and is trying to figure out some way to make it work. Dude... there's no way to make it work. We just don't have the extra money to take a vacation like that again so soon. He needs to face it.

And that's why I want to start getting my craft on lol. So we can hopefully go on more trips and whatnots. Not that I think I'll become some bazillionaire or anything rofl. But any little bit would help :) Even if it's just enough to buy a single souvenir magnet or something rofl... that would still be something.

Ugh....

So when did I post last? Don't even remember.
Oren and Zoe had appointments last week. Both had to get shots.
Both are good too. Oren was 24lbs.
I don't remember the other stats lol.

Friday, Zoe myself and dh had to go to the dentist. Dh needed some crap for small cavities and myself and Zoe just had a cleaning. I swear, dental hygienists are modern day torturers. My teeth weren't even that nad, but couldn't tell that with the way she was scraping the shit out of my teeth and gums.

Oren spent the night with his granny on Friday. We went to get him Saturday afternoon at a chicken joint where he proceeded to throw up potato chunks all over me.
He also threw up on the way home and yeah. Stomch bugs suck ass.
No idea where he got it from but wouldn't doubt it was from mils house.
Anyway, he's been sick since then and is very slowly on the mend.
He couldn't keep any liquid down on Saturday and Sunday. Thankfully he could keep down Ice chips, but he didn't want to eat enough of them to help with the dehydration.
Of course I caught it and started throwing up last night. I'm thankfully not as sick as he got, but it still sucks.
Feel so weak and feverish without the fever.
Now, Zoe started to throw up tonight. Sigh.....
I'm sure dh will be next and Ezra. Most worried bout Ez. Will have to take him to hospital if he gets sick.

I've only pumped 4 times today too. I just didn't have the energy earlier to do it. My supply is definitely going to take a hit from this. Will be a lot of work to get it back up, but I'm gonna try my best.

Thankfully dh stayed home today to take care of the kids, but he'll be going back tomorrow unless he gets sick.
Thankfully I'm already feeling a little better so it shouldn't be too bad... Other than taking care of sick kiddos :(

Happy Belated birthday to me!

Yesterday was my birthday and meh. Like any other day except with cake and I didn't have to cook dinner lol.
Hell, DH didn't even offer to change poop diapers when he got home. Asshole....

It was a good day though. Tantrums were minimal and overall it was a nice boring day which I'm totally cool with.
Would've been better if I could've slept in though. Ez woke up at 6am and wouldn't go back to sleep /cry

The cake made up for it though. Made myself sick by eating 2 giant pieces of it, but damn.. is it good!
____

6w PP appointment tomorrow. UGH. Do I HAVE to have a pelvic exam if I had a c-sec? I'm gonna ask b/c I don't see why I would need it since I didn't push a baby out my vajangle.
Oh doh.. google to dash my dreams. Looks like everyone gets the exam since it should count as an annual exam. BLEH! Need to do some serious trimming tonight. Things are wild and untamed down south.
____

Zoe wrote her name last night! WOO!
She's been going to her church thing on Wednesdays and has 'homework' she has to do before the next meetup the following week.
She had to draw a picture for this week and DH showed her how to write her name. She remembered the letters that spell her name which was awesome enough, then after DH showed her how to write it, she did it all by herself!
So proud of my girl :) She was so proud of herself too that she did it 2 more times and wanted me to get pics of all of it which I happily did. :)

I think my newborn is broken...

That's the only explanation I can think of as to why he fights sleep so damn much and so often. Newborns are supposed to sleep and eat and poop/pee.
Not scream and cry and act like sleep is their mortal enemy.

Woke up at 3 to pump and feed Ez. I knew it was gonna be a long night b/c he completely woke up to eat instead of dream eating like he normally does.
I did get lots of cute little smiles and he acted like he was going to go back to sleep. HA! Just a ruse....
I was up until 5am trying to get his little butt back to sleep. And I swear he has a radar.
I'd stand by the bassinet and just wait to see if he was going to spit out his pacifier. As soon as I laid back down in bed... he'd start fussing.
This didn't happen just once... oh no... it happened at least half a dozen times.
Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh
I actually started tearing up near the end b/c I was just so frustrated and tired.
I could let DH get up some of the times too, but I'd be awake anyway b/c my brain just can not sleep when it hears any of my babies make a noise. Could be in deep sleep, but as soon as one of them burped.. I'd be awake. Maybe not wide awake, but still awake. Plus he has to go to work to make the money so... getting up with the baby is the least I can do.
He did get up once but Ez carried on for another 30min after until he finally went to sleep.
Sigh......
____

Zoe and Oren have thankfully been better the last couple of days.No screaming/crying fits for no reason.
There have been a few for a reason, but none for seemingly no reason lol.

I did have to watch 2 of my brother's kids yesterday for a few hours, but they were ok for the most part and Oren was kept occupied playing with the boy cousin.
____

Speaking of my brother.... him and his wife are giant thieving assholes. Well.. probably mostly my brother but his wife is in some serious denial if she doesn't question where their money is coming from.
Basically my brother is committing identity theft b/c they refuse to live within their means.
Plus he's a giant dumbass that keeps getting himself fired from perfectly great jobs for whatever reason.
All those comic con trips and trips to other cons (That SiL and one of their kids came back from... why I had to watch the other 2)... they can't afford that shit on his job.
But nope... they refuse to just accept the fact that they're poor and don't need to be spending money on stupid shit so... what do they do? Steal my mom's information and open up credit cards in her name.

Yes... seriously. My mom found out bc the banks kept calling her about paying the bills. My mom has NEVER owned a credit card. She didn't know WTH was going on until they straight up told her that it was my brother that opened up the account and that she can either pay the bill or she can press charges against my brother and he'll go to jail.
I was caught up in all this shit b/c my brother and his wife don't answer their phones when my mom calls them, so she calls me to call them.
She wanted to talk to my brother or else she was going to press charges which wouldn't do him or his family any good.
I talked to SiL and told her straight up what wwas going on. She did genuinely sound like she had no idea what he did. I told her to tell him... Would he rather get yelled and cursed at or would he rather go to jail?
He did end up talking to our mom, but my mom recently found out that he had gotten a credit card from another bank in her name.
Good lord he is a DUMBASS ASSHOLE.
I mean.. WTH did he think was going to happen when my mom was getting the bill and calls for credit cards she never opened? She can see the invoices and see that the purchases are being made locally. She may not speak English all that well, but she's not an idiot.
She doesn't have a ton of money.. she wasn't going to just sit back and pay off this crap.

Just UGH... piss me off.
Glad that they don't really talk to us b/c.... just ugh.
I love my brother and his wife, but gawd damn. Stop being scumbags and live within your means!
Be role models for your kids and not models of what not to be.
____

Anywho...
Enough of that...

Pumping is going well. About the same.
Don't think my boobs can physically hold anymore than what I've been getting (about 600-700ml per day)
I admit that I get a bit jealous when I look up info and see these women pumping 5+ oz each boob PER pump. Wow... that's insane to me.
And that's AFTER they already Bf'd their baby. What?? How???
Sigh.....
I'm happy to get what I can get though. I know there are probably a lot of women they can't even get what I do.
Going to try to go for as long as I can.
It's helping that I'm logging all of the times and amounts that I'm getting. Helps to keep me on track and it's encouraging to see the numbers stay steady or increase a little. It is a bit sucky to see shit numbers too though so kind of a double edged sword, but it's mostly positive.

I haven't needed to take ibuprofin or tylenol for a few days now. The last time I did was for an awful headache that wouldn't go away. No pain in incision area though. I have had some pain and stiffness in my right hip which sucks.

Weight is staying steady at around 216 give or take. Hoping that with consistent pumping, that I"ll be one of those magical unicorn moms that drops the weight easily... lol.. yeah right.

Not really sure the lactation cookies are working. They're good, but not sure if the possibly benefit is worth all the sugar in them.

Have 2 appointments this week. One for a teeth cleaning and my 6w PP one. Fun :\

Birthday is tomorrow...... more sleep would be a great present but yeah.. that's not gonna happen lol.
DH better get me a birthday cake though. I don't care about getting a present... I just want a Publix birthday cake with giant frosting sugary diabeeteez flowers on it!! I've compromised too many times for my birthday dinner and cake. Getting disappointing shit that I didn't want b/c I didn't want DH to have to eat or get things he didn't like.
Well SCREW THAT NOISE this time. I want what I want and damnit.. I better get it!

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Birth control.... that's what my kids' nicknames need to be...

Holy shit... Oren's nonstop crying and whining are driving me up the damn wall. Just go the F to sleep!!!
If anyone ever wonders why they don't want kids and then they heard what comes out of mine... they'd be like "Oh yeah.. that's why!"
And he's SO damn sensitive to everything and scream cries.. usually right by his sleeping brother.

I love my little boogers to death, but holy shit do they annoy the hell out of me sometimes. Ok.. a lot of times :P

And Ezra is no better right now. Newborns are supposed to sleep a lot.. which he does, but he also fights sleep like it's the reason he was put on this earth. And him fighting sleep means he's grumpy as hell and SCREAMS and SHRIEKS like a damn banshee.
I'm sorry little dude... I can't hold you as much as I want b/c you have 2 siblings and I need to pump and need my hands free to do that.
My boobs suck and need a ton of massaging to get your food out of them.

And Zoe... Zoe just keeps getting more stubborn and more defiant. Ask/tell her to do something and you can plainly see her ignore you. Not just her not hearing you, no.... you can see that little switch in her head being turned on to ignore whatever you just said to her. And she's getting more stingy and greedy with her toys. Which of course causes Oren to cry and uuuuuuugh. It's never ending sometimes lol.

I've learned to ignore a lot of it b/c if I didn't, I'd go insane :P
But just sometimes.. it's hard to ignore. It's hard to ignore when I'm simultaneously trying to pump, get Oren to stop crying, get Ezra to stop crying and just go to sleep (or bottle feed him), and trying to get Zoe to clean up after herself.

Having kids is not easy. Lemme tell ya lol
I really wouldn't trade it for anything, even on the hardest days... but MAN is it hard sometimes.

Mommy needs a break...... or a giant piece of a cake and a 6 pack of highly caffeinated soda.... and a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. Oh my gosh..... ok..... I'll take sleep over everything else. Sweet beautiful sleep..... sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep

Just letting the boobs drip

It's just after 3am. I'm sitting here and just as the title says, letting my boobs drip a bit after I just pumped.
I'm glad I'm not trying to pump more than once a night and that Ezra only usually wakes once to eat.
Still would rather be able to just sleep though. Its a guaranteed hour or so of being awake which sucks when all you can think about is sleep.
Small price to pay I guess.

This week has been ok. I've been a lot bitchier than usual. Just snapping a but quicker, which I'm not proud of.
Really hate yelling at the kids or getting mad at them. Have to remind myself that they're still so young and they're going to be holy terrors sometimes...lol.
Just gotta give myself some slack though.
I've been doing pretty good, but it should be better.

Alrighty, gotta go wash all the pump stuff and get back to sweet sweet sleep.

I think it's working

So that Earth Mama nipple butter stuff seems to be working a bit better than lanolin did.
The raw spots don't seem to be as sore anymore and look like they're healing.
We'll see if this continues. If so.. WOO! :D

Got my brewers yeast today. Need to print out a recipe and make some cookies. Who knows if they'll work, but won't hurt to try.

Hour later:  So I made the cookie batter. Pumping right now but will put some in the oven as soon as I'm done.
Simple enough recipe. Basic cookie recipe with the added flax seed and brewers yeast. I'm sure it will taste fine.

Couple hours later: Yep... they taste like cookies lol. Not as sweet as I thought they'd be, but still good.

Gotta cut this short. Need to change a diaper and eat some dinner. It's a bit difficult trying to figure out what to do first.. do I feed the baby first or do I change a poop diaper on Oren's rashy butt.

Feeding won.....

Monday, September 12, 2016

Pics really quick!

Got some photos off the camera and just want to post them really quick before I get distracted lol








DH had too much fun posing Ez for the superman photos lol. Too cute though :)

Have a little bit of time since Oren just got up from his nap and he's not fussing yet.

I think the new nipple butter stuff is working pretty well. At least it seems so so far. Nips aren't nearly as painful when pumping as they usually are.
I hate the way the stuff smells though. To me it smells like used cooking oil. Just gross IMO. But there's an underlying slight cake or cookie dough kind of smell too, but I mostly smell oil.. and not good stuff.
The look and texture... it's an ugly yellow color and the texture is like slightly warm coconut oil. You know, when the coconut oil is still solid but slightly mushy and melts to the runny oil as soon as it touches your hand. That's what this stuff is like. Not thick like lanolin at all.
But like I said, it seems to be working pretty well so far. Ive only been using it for a day total so far though so we'll see how things go with it once I've been using it longer.
____

Bought a few things to make lactation cookies. Walmart didn't have powdered brewers yeast so I bought them in pill form to take while I wait for an order of it to come in from amazon (bought it when we got home from the store).
No idea if all of this will work, but we'll see and thankfully it all wasn't as expensive as I thought it was going to be.
____

My supply is still a little lower than it has been. Might be picking back up a little more since I started eating oatmeal every day but I dunno. Again.. it's one of those things that needs to be kept an eye on long term to see if it's actually helping.
____

Alright.... need go go get the little booger up before he does get upset :)

Just going with the flow

Ezra is one smiley little guy. It's so darn adorable. He actually laughed earlier today.
Dh changed his diaper and Oren was on the bed kissing on him. When dh was done, he started playing with Ezra and started getting giant smiles and that's when Ez laughed. I thought it was Oren when I heard it.
Oh, ezra's appointment went well. Or so,i was told by dh. While he took ez, I took the other kids to target and the grocery store really quick.
Anywho... Ez is 10lbs 5oz and just over 21inches long. My big little guy :)

First 'week' of just me was ok. Did count down the minutes until dh got home lol, but it was ok. Zoe and Oren love their little brother, but it gets tiring having to make sure they're not accidently killing him.
Lol, I know that sounds horrible, but it's so Damn true. 
They both just don't fully grasp that they can't do certain things with Ez.

My supply has been wonky the last few days. Decreasing and not wanting to come back up. Looks like my right boob is finally working today. Just hope it lasts.
Using a new nipple cream too. Earth mama brand. Just wanted to try something different to see if it helped better.

Anywho, need to focus on pumping right now. 

Thursday, September 8, 2016

Wtf boobs

Wth is going on with My milk supply?
My left boob is giving what it has been, the right one is starting to give less and I have no idea why.
Maybe something hormonal?
I did start spotting red again, so it could be something going on with my hormones, but it would effect both boobs...not just the right one.
Frustrating, but hopefully it resolves itself.
Fighting a headache right now. Showed up after my mediocre but needed nap this afternoon. So far, Tylenol and Ibuprofin are failing miserably.

And blah blah... Need to cook dinner

2 days down... 18+ years to go

I'm so dang tired it's not even funny. Caffeine is barely keeping me awake. Only thing keeping me going is just sheer determination not to wake up to a house destroyed lol.

First day, trying to pump in the room was not a good idea. Zoe and Oren took full advantage of my absence to get in to everything they could.

Today, I took the pump out in to the living room. A bit more awkward, especially trying to take care of Ezra when he started crying, but at least I could,keep an eye on the other 2. I'm pumping out less today too. Think it may be the lack of sleep. Sigh... My body better get used to it bc it's gonna be this way for a while.

And my butt is aching too. So much for that no,pain after thing. It's a really mild pain. Feels,like when you sit on a hard surface for too long. Just uncomfortable, but getting better.... At least until,the next time i,mean to poop.

Thinking of going do,the store tomorrow with the kids. Running low on lanolin and my nips REALLY need it right now.
I haven't been having trouble picking Oren up thankfully... That's until he presses right in to my nipples. Holy crap the pain!!!
It's excruciating.

Ezra is doing well. He's smiling a lot,more. Still sleeping a lot. Fussing a ton more now too though. Not sure if it's has or just him wanting something else.
Hard to believe that he's gonna be a month old on Friday. Geeze, time really does fly by.

Something is wrong with my ass

So... This has happened twice now and yeah.. I hope it's nothing serious.
Two different times.. After I've had a largish poop... Like a bit too wide do,it hurts a little coming out... I've wiped away blood. Not just a little either.
It only happened with these 2 poops and other than the initial mild pain of pushing out the giant poop, there's no,other pain.
Is this from hemorrhoids?
Alao, there doesn't seem,to be any kind of active bleeding.,it only happened with these 2 poops and the blood is only there when im,wiping after. I've gone to pee soon after both times and no more blood when,i wiped.

If it continues, I'll bring it up at my 6w pp appointment. I don't think it's anything serious, but who knows.
____

video
In other news... Ezra was in a great mood earlier and have all,of us some giant gummy smiles. So stinking cute!!
Hmm video seems to want to post wherever it wants. Oh well... Its cute so it's all good lol.
____

And finally... Drank a little more today and my supply seems to have gone back up a little. Yay for that :)
We've already used all of the new lids we bought. Annoying but hey..., there are worse things ;)

Saturday, September 3, 2016

Yikes

Woah, I'm not going to get nearly as much breast milk today as I have been.
Think it's because i haven't been drinking enough, bc I've been pumping plenty.
Or well... I've been pumping As much as i,have been.

I,know off days will happen for various reasons, but with how unstable it seems my supply is, it's a bit shitty when something like this happens.
Just need to make sure to drink plenty of fluids and hope that was the reason for the decrease and nothing more.
____

Ezra has the grossest shafts earlier and they wouldn't stop lol. Poor guy. I'm sure all that has couldn't have felt good, but sure did when it came out.
He did leak a little. I changed him right after he was done with his 10min long shaft so it didn't give the poo a chance to leak more lol.
I thought breast milk babies were supposed to poop less? Definitely not the case for Ez.
____

Anyway, still in pain. Tylenol and Ibuprofin are only helping a little.
Sigh.... Come on body... Heal already!!

Gawd damnit

So, I picked Oren up today to,out him in his crib for a nap.
Apparently that was a mistake bc now im in pain on my right ovary area again.
Took Tylenol... That didn't do anything, so just took some Ibuprofin and hope,it helps,and,kicks in soon.
I,know csec recovery takes a while, but Damn.... I just want to feel better already and,be able to do,more than just rest. While it's nice that dh is taking care of mostly everything, it would be nice to help take care of,my kids without continued pain.
Sigh......

Other than that... Things are going ok.

Oh and total first world problems.... Its getting more difficult finding things to watch on,netflix,lol. Well... There,is a lot of stuff, but just not,in the mood to watch a lot,of,it. Oh well...
Right now watching the show Scream. Its ok....,funny seeing,these obvious adults playing high school kids though lol.
I don't know how some of these actors landed these jobs considering how old they look. Can't tell me there were younger looking actors that were just as attractive and better talented.

Friday, September 2, 2016

It only took him 4 years

It's a darn miracle. Dh is finally hanging up the bazillion pictures we have!!
They're all of Zoe when she was a baby, that's how long they've been laying around lol.
Hell, we haven't gotten pics printed since Oren was a newborn. We've been seriously slacking to put it mildly.
Need to go through all of our photos so we can print more out to hang up. Love going down memory lane though. Seeing how tiny Oren was not too long ago. Sigh, they really do grow up so darn fast.

Anyway, tried getting photos off my phone, but something is wrong with the card. Reads perfectly fine in the phone, but computer and camera can't pick anything up from it. Need to figure out why bc I can't email the pics either bc my phone sucks or something.

He's been so productive these last few days though. So proud of him for getting some shit done :)

And thnkfully, it seems Tylenol is good enough for my pain relief. I still have to take it easy bc it doesn't get rid of it completely, but it's good enough. Woo!

There was more I wnted to say, but having some serious mom brain right now and can't remember anything. Lol

I wanna sleep,like a baby

That would be nice right about now bc it would mean multiple hours long naps all throughout the day. Pure heaven lol

We're supposed to get hit by that hermine hurricane. Thankfully where we are, if it stays its current course, then we'll only be getting the putter edge of it. We could be seeing temps in the mid 70s tomorrow though. Woooooo!! I haven't been that hot, but it's still gonna be nice having that temp even if it's raining.
Just hope everyone that is hit with this storm directly remains safe during.

We bought a box of bottles that came with 6 kids. It wasn't too expensive, but it's still bullshit that medela or anyone else doesn't sell kids separate to go,on their bottles.

I've been getting headaches the last few days. Not terrible ones, but Ibuprofin usually didn't do much. Took Tylenol and thankfully that helped a lot. Can still feel the headache, but only just barely.
Thinking that maybe it's hormone related.

Dh has had a fire under his butt the last couple of days. He's cleaned out the sunroom and pretty much made it in to the kids playroom. Still a bunch of their junk,in the,living room still lol.
Now he's cleaning out the dining room so he can,set up the exercise stuff. That dining room was a disaster area when we took everything out of the nursery room. Going to be a lot of crap being put elsewhere...where? I have no idea. That's up to him lol.

I really hope Oren grows out of this 'cries over every Damn thing' phase he's going through. Good Lord is it frustrating and irritating.
I love him with all my heart, but wish he would just shut up when he starts up with his tantrums.

And with that mom confession... Gotta and it here. Focus on trying to massage out every drop of milk I can.
I love the bigger boobs...not these raw nipples though.
