I'm stealing Christa's title but it's really a good one for my post to fill you in on a variety of details:
Midwives: I just received the call today from the Midwifery office saying they have an opening for me. My first appointment with them will be August 21st. There are two midwives assigned to each person - mine are Shirley and Cathy (I've met them both but I honestly don't remember Shirley at all...Cathy I remember from Olivia's birth). A big relief to now know I won't need to be searching for an obstetrician and worrying about the prenatal care of our baby.
Camping at Earl Rowe: Finally, I've convinced Jamie to go camping with Jenn and Christa and the boys this weekend. It'll just be for Saturday night since he has softball tonight but it's better than nothing.
Lobsters: My sister brought me back, for my birthday, yummy lobsters from Newfoundland on Wednesday. They were so frikkin good! YUM! And the girls gave me some cute presents too - at the insectarium they bought me a necklace that has a real beetle in it. It's orange and creeps me out yet fascinates me at the same time. They also gave me "frog" scrapbook stickers and Erykah made me a cut-out heart and coloured it with bingo dabbers....very cute :)
Kitty: Jamie has officially taken over the duty of changing the kitty litter since it's forbidden and very dangerous to do that whilst prego. He's not too keen on the chore and last night looked absolutely hilariously ridiculous as he wrapped a big towel around his face in an effort to not be grossed out. LMAO!
Stewart and Janet: Guy here at work just told me his wife has stomach cancer. He said she has to have surgery soon to remove the stomach for her best chances. They're quite a strange couple, I have to say, but it seems all they really have is each other. He's very upset and honestly the thought of one without the other just seems cruel. And so I ask for your prayers for them both during this difficult time.
Yogurt: I really don't like it at all and I'm supposed to be eating it. I've tried a couple flavours that I think I could stomach enough to get it down. Now, I like frozen yogurt. Does anyone know if that's equally as good for you as regular yogurt or if it's simply just as evil as ice cream?
Wedding Photos: Now that we've been married nearly a year, I finally did some enlargements and have them framed for our living room wall. They're not up there yet, just sitting propped against the wall but ya gotta give me credit for the slight bit of progress...no?
Maternity Clothes: I don't need it yet but when the time comes I'd rather not spend a fortune. And everyone I know who's currently pregnant, is much skinnier than me (wait...I'm not skinny at all, in fact, not even close) and I therefore cannot borrow clothes from them. My sister has a few things but not much really since she let a friend borrow some and then didn't get it back...and she also used to wear a uniform to work and didn't require a lot of maternity attire. Any suggestions to keep within a cheap budget for clothes when I get that big baby belly?
*Warning: Jamie, do NOT read the following cause you're just gonna be annoyed at me for mocking "Hynes"...*
Name Change: Gotta legally get that done. I promised Jamie I'd do it before we have a baby. Never thought I'd have such a hard time leaving "Goosney" behind but I guess I just didn't think I'd be changing to a last name synonymous with ketchup. I mean, I like ketchup and everything but never envisioned myself being named after it. Oh well, such is life I suppose.
Scrapbooking: Watch for my next post which I plan to be my first submission to THE ME BLOG weekly layout challenge.
Bye for now!
