This week's lesson seems to be that sometimes even if you really want something that dosen't mean it won't be without stress and you have to learn to live with things not being on your preferred time line.The ongoing saga of the contractor from hell is now entering a new, suprising and hopefully, really truly the last stage. Apparently recieving a letter from the Attourney Generals office, &/or my insurance company was the motivation he needed to offer to finish the job he contracted for over two months ago. I wish I could have the last month or so back to enjoy my pregnancy with less stress, both physical and financial, and that he would have decided this before it got to this point- but at this point I'm trying my hardest to be grateful that the Friday 8PM deadline I gave him is in site, after which time I'll never have to deal with this again.
It looks like Conner may hold out for 10/10/10 after all. While I'm getting very uncomfortable I'm really excited and still think this would be an AWESOME birthday.
Family and friends have been so amazingly supportive. I can't wait to introduce my son to all the wonderful people in my world!
I'm trying to make the most of this experience as I know it will likely be my only chance. Despite the discomforts and stress I'm currently more comfortable with my body image than I can ever remember being, even when I was in my mid 20's, worked out 3-5 times a week and counted every single calorie I put in my mouth. I love my baby belly and I'm so glad that I got a chance to have a maternity photo shoot to capture the experience. I can't wait to see the pictures!
I got to do some more beading with the girlchild and talk with her more about her incoming sybling. I'm hopeful that meeting him will settle any qualms and fears that have been put into her head. I think she'll make a fantastic big sister!
I've been finding more information and articles in my research for the paper I'm working on. I've definately hit a wall where most of the information I'm finding is fascinating and relates to my general field of study, but not as much as I'd hoped to this particular paper. However one of my dearest companions has decided to gift me with one of the books that looked most promising but wasn't in my current budget. I'm feeling pretty spoiled on that front! :)
