Nesting

I had a moment yesterday.  It wasn't a, "Oh I am so happy I could just cry" kind of moment.  Don't get me wrong - I am pretty happy - but it was more of a, "Oh Crimony - this baby is going to be here in 12 weeks" kind of moment.  And let's be honest, I really didn't say crimony.  Just trying to keep this blog G-rated.  I literally froze as the thought played on repeat in my mind.  My dr was trying to talk to me during the sonogram, and I was rendered speechless.  We all know that I always have something to say, so that must have been one heck of a BIG moment.

So, while I was doing my three hour glucose testing this morning, I made a list of honey do's that need to be done in the next 8 weeks give or take.   We all know that I am not going to get anything done once school is out for the summer because I'll be the beached whale hanging out in the shallow end of the pool while the girls swim.  I hope SeaWorld doesn't come looking for a whale, because I may be a target.  ;)

I'll also be the honey doing the honey do's on this list as well seeing how this has been a busy time in the concrete world.  I'm going to be sporting a lot of different hats, but that's not really something that is foreign to me.  I may just have the pace of a turtle and a little waddle going on while trying to complete everything.

I am pretty fired up with this "nesting" thing kicking in, so I am going to take full advantage of it.  I wish it lasted more than just throughout my pregnancy.  I found great organizing blog with lots of cools tips on Facebook of all places!  Who would have thought?!?!?  I have also compiled an arsenal of recipes to do weekly meal planning courtesy of my new addiction, Pinterest, and my Food Network magazine, my other obsession.

In other news - MC turned 4 on Wednesday.  I don't know if any of you saw her picture on Facebook, but she was one fired up precious pretty.  She's devastated it's not her birthday anymore, but she hasn't lost her zest for life.  I can't imagine my life without her.  I mean, I don't know a lot of other kids that would sing the Circle of Life on the top of their lungs to make sure that "Simba", the lone male lion at the Smithsonian Zoo, knew she was there.  She has more facial expressions than Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell combined.  She wants to wear "up-sleeves" and shorts all the time.  She will correct you if you tell her she looks pretty or cute, and tell you that she looks awesome.  I was a hot mess on her birthday, and thankfully I had an amazing friend with me for the majority of the day to keep me sane.  I sure do love that precious pretty, and I am just in awe with the fact that God thought I could handle another one.

Big weekend coming up so I better get busy.  WE have soccer and softball practice tonight, soccer game and a birthday party tomorrow, PP#2's birthday party and another birthday party on Sunday.  I need to  get everything done for MC's party by Sunday.  I'll just put on another hat and figure it out as I go.  It's how I roll.

Carry on.
xoxo

Busy mama! I didn't realize you were taking the three hour glucose test. ICK! I had to do the three-hour with Elizabeth, and I thought I was going to die! I wrote about it here:
http://somanyjoys.com/?p=209 -- just had to go reread it to relive the moment. Oh, the joys of pregnancy. :-) Nesting is good, though. And how fun to be nesting with Pinterest as an aid!
