Tis the Season

Yes, dear readers, tis the season for me to be a blog flake.

It gets really hard for me to do the ole blog this time of year. It seems like there is just too much to do, so something suffers. I guess I just need to allocate the time and do it, but then this thing that I think is fun, will turn into work and I just don't want it to be that way. Oh well. I will get over my blog guilt and get on with it here.

Amr and Ayman returned from Egypt a week ago. Ayman was a whole new guy. He was stuck on Amr like glue. He got hysterical for like three days whenever his dad left the room. Now though, he is stuck on me and when his dad comes home from work he barely bats an eye, so that is back to normal. The boy wakes up a couple of times a night though, so he has kind of regressed. Although, if I don't give him a real nap, (like I used too, everyday at 2 or 3 pm, in his crib, with a bottle) he will go to bed at 9 pm. I used to dream of him going to bed at 9 pm, thinking it would give me time to do things after he sleeps. You wanna know what I do after he sleeps? I sleep. pathetic. I am asleep by 10. I suck. His birthday is on the 9th of December, so I am busy planning that, he will be turning 2. I finally get to have the party at my own place. I am sure this will be highly overrated. As I posted previously, while the boys were gone I got a lot done at my place as far a settling in goes. Now I don't mind the thought of having people over. Everything has a place and is neat. I have even managed to make it look like Christmas threw up in my living room. Now, when the baby is awake I get to look forward to saying "don't touch that Christmas tree!" at least 5 times an hour if not more. I think he will be getting the idea soon though, he is smart like that.

I have been off work for over a week now and will be going back on Friday. Hopefully I will get to ultrasound the baby again then, but if not I will get to try and see what I am having on the 7th of December. The new baby is very active, and unfortunately, still making me hurl about once a week. Which is really nothing compared to the incontinence. Let me just take this time to share with you my bladder woes. I caught a really crappy cold after the boys got back. With a very bad cough. Not the best thing to have when you are pregnant with the second kid and your bladder control left something to be desired in the first place. I am Pee Mom. Making fun of my mom is coming back to bite me on the ass as she said it would. I cant cough, laugh or sneeze without seriously peeing my pants. This used to be controlled by crossing my legs whenever I needed to do the above. But for the last week I have been coughing so much and so frequently that one time I actually coughed, peed and farted at the same time. TMI, I know, but you can stop reading at anytime. I am a mess.

So, are you secretly wishing that I didn't post anything ever again? Not-so-secretly? I am sure you aren't alone. I am going to try to post more often now, but, seriously I can't promise anything til after the new year in the means of regularity. Stick with me though. I'll be here eventually.

I Am Still Alive

Although my house has been child and husband-free for the last three weeks I have not really been around. Sorry folks. I am here to tell you that I am still alive and will be blogging very soon. Since I have had only myself at the ole homestead I have been doing some revamping. Some new furniture, cleaning carpets, my mom put new sticky tile in my bathrooms, and boy, it looks great. So now this weekend I go to work, "Sandy" has returned by the way-- and put the finishing touches on my place before my husband and son come home and tear it up.

Life is good.

Oh, and I also turned 34 on the 15th of this month.
not so great.

In baby news, after three separate attempts to see what the gender of my baby is, we so far, have had no luck whatsoever. It is stubborn and turns its back to the ultrasound.
I don't know where the kid gets it.

I gotta go, but I just wanted y'all to know I am not dead or anything.
