Sugar, anyone?

Okay, so I just ran to Target to get some Claritin and a new hair dryer because mine quit. Claritin, because I would like to be able to breathe before the baby arrives, and hair dryer to make sure I look better in the hospital than I did when Kaylee was born. Yes, I know I am supposed to be on bedrest, but Target is so close and it was just a few items! Anyway, I have been obssessed with how I am going to lose all this baby weight after the baby comes. I even watched the Nutrisystem thing on QVC for an hour this morning. While in Target, it hit me that I should eat all the sugar I can before I try to lose weight. Probably not the best thing for baby, but I am still pregnant and entitled to cravings. Somehow, when I got home, there must have been several things that had "jumped" into my cart! I ended up with 3 large bags of M&M's (not the single serve, the huge bags), Snickers miniatures, Nestle eggs, Butterfinger Easter candy, Toasted marshmallows, Little Debbie Donut Sticks, Powdered Sugar Donuts, Swiss Rolls, and Cosmic Brownies. Oh my goodness! No, I will not eat all of this before Friday. I promise!

Well, my goal is to finish all of my ACU grad work today for my current class so that I do not have to worry about it after Friday. But, of course, I am a procrastinator and blogging just seems like more fun right now. So. maybe I will just check out a few more blogs and then get to work!

It's only been a year!

Well, after a year, I guess it is time to start blogging again. Yes, that last post is from February 2006. It took me awhile to get on here because I couldn't even remember how to log on! So much has happened in the last year. In July we took a month long trip to California. While there we found out I was expecting again, so that was exciting. My due date is March 11, but the doctor is going to induce me on this Friday, March 2. This has been a much harder pregnancy than with Kaylee, so I am happy. I had to stop working yesterday because I was having really bad pains, huge swollen ankles and calves, and my blood pressure had gone up to 140/93. That is really high for me.

We have been trying to have a lot of Kaylee time lately since her world is about to be rocked upside down! She is very excited to meet Baby Nolan, but I think that may change a little next week when he comes home!

I am going to try my hardes to keep this updated while on maternity leave and add some pics when the baby comes!
