30 Days of Thankfulness | November 9, 2012

30 Days of Thankfulness - November 2012

Day 9: I'm thankful today, that I was not admitted to the hospital last night.

I am 38.5 weeks pregnant and had my weekly check up yesterday (11/8/12) with my doctor. Since about 30 weeks I started to swell in my legs and feet, as well as my hands. My hands ache and ache and ache, especially at night. I wake up in the morning and I am not be able to open and close my hands, or use them to help me get up. It sounds awful, right? I have never heard of anyone having this type of side affect during pregnancy and it is soooooooo painful! Onto my legs, ankles and feet...oh my, they are huge. I stopped wearing a lot of my shoes awhile ago. I even had to go out and buy some man shoes to wear...how embarrassing.

Happy November!

Day 8: I am thankful for my friend Ashley.

Ashley and me :)
She has been such a rockstar helper for so many things in my life. She was a trooper at the wedding last summer. So helpful at the shower this fall. She even took the time to come help me put the babies furniture together! I am so thankful to have such a good friend :)

Happy November!

30 Days of Thankfulness - November 2012

Day 6: I am thankful for how technology has advance thus far.

 

I love that I am able to keep connected with the people I love through Facebook, text messaging, calling, emailing, twitter, Instagram, blogs, and so many other platforms. It rocks! Especially since so many of us are seperated by cities, states and even oceans! I get to keep connected on what's going on in your lives, all the exciting adventures you go on, watching your kids grow, special events in your lives, oh gosh! So many things that we wouldn't be able to do without technology :) Being able to stay in touch makes me heart smile!

 

Happy November!

30 Days of Thankfulness - November 2012

Day 5: I am thankful that I am not working full time.

Today was a rough day, I was pretty darn exhausted for most of the day. I have so much I need (and promised) I would do and go through...but did not get as much as I had planned done. I am so thankful that I am not working right now and have the opportunity to stay home and relax when I need to, and get stuff done when I need to as well. It's such a blessing. I just wish that I had more energy today. Maybe tomorrow!

Happy November!

I could probably be thankful for my Husband everyday...and I so am! But today especially! PB spent the entire day cleaning our house { while I sewed my tush off! } !! He didn't complain. He didn't act annoyed. He cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. The house looks amazing! I am so thankful!

Happy November!

Day 2: I am thankful that a credit I have been waiting for and working on for what seems like forever, finally went through!

This may seem silly, but for my family this is huge! You see, I lost my job in early September. Which although is an awful thing, truly it was for the best and I have not once been sad about it. I hated that job. And I could not be happier not working there. The environment was toxic and the upper management and owners had no clue what they were doing. But that's what happens when you have zero business experience. Anyway, they 'let me go' because of a situation that was totally falsified...but I had known for awhile { because I am super observant } that they wanted to find a way to get rid of me. So in late August my Manager asked if I was pregnant... I did say yes, but this was the first time I had vocalized it to anyone there. This was also right before I went on 'vacation', where I headed back to Ohio for the birth of my niece, Emerson, and to stay with my sister to help out with Coen as they got used to having two kids in the house. Well the day I got back, all the big wigs were in the store and low and behold... they 'let me go' for the falsified situation. I truly believe it was because I was pregnant. But either way, I could not be happier to not be working there any longer. :)

So back to this credit, it came just in time and I so thankful for it. It feels like a large weight has been lifted off my shoulders. { At least for now ;) }

Happy November!

Making plans, and ready to cut!

30 Days of Thankfulness - November 2012

 

With the holidays quickly approaching and the season of Giving Thanks upon us, I have decided to partake in '30 Days of Thankfulness'. I have so much to be thankful for this holiday season, especially the bundle of joy that is on it's way (due November 19). So for the month of November I will post something I am thankful for daily.

Day 1: I am thankful for being pregnant.

Day 1: November 1, 2012

Although it was a lot to bare in the beginning, I truly could not be more excited! I think PB (my husband) really helps with that because he has been so excited the whole time! Earlier this week when we went to the doctor, she was going to check to see if I am dilated at all and PB (although he would kill me for sharing this...) teared up a bit. It was so special :) Here I thought I was the only one that was so emotional about everything. We don't know what we are having or when it will make its debut but we are excited! And anxiously waiting to find out if it's a boy or girl! Either way, I know we will love it whole-heartedly!

 

Happy November :)
