Tomorrow Is The Day!

I am so excited! I go in tomorrow morning, before the sun comes up, at 5 am. My c section is scheduled for 7am. I will be updating on Facebook for those of you on my friends list. I will update here when I get home. These 9 months have flown by and dragged all at the same time.

Court Day

S, court didn't go as bad as I thought it would. I wound up having to go by myself. Charlie couldn't get off work. I left my house an hour and a half early and got the in plenty of time. Stupid me, forgot to bring cash though. So I drove around downtown, in the horrible fog, trying to find free parking. I couldn't find any so I had to dig through the car for change and ask passing people for change for a dollar.

After finding a parking spot (a block away), I had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to the first level. I went to the building that said courthouse, went through security, and then up to the second floor. Got there and found out I was in the wrong building. I had to go back outside and across the courtyard.

Got to the right building and through security again. Court took for ever and was so boring. Court started at 8:30 and my name was called at 10:30 (While my leg was shaking because I knew my meter was running out of time). Luckily we had a judge who was in a good mood and had a since of humor. My ticket for insurance and license was dismissed and I only have to pay for the speeding one. I also got a month extension so I have until the end of March to pay it all off.

I was hoping to not have to pay anything, but after hearing the judge talke to a few of the other people, I figured it would be easier if I offered to pay a little bit. Of course, I had left my checkbook in the car. I had to go back down the steps and half a block to the car, then back up the steps to the court. All the while waddling. I payed my ticket and had to walk back down the stairs and down the block. After all of that, I was worn out for the rest of the day.

If It's Not One Things It's Another

So yesterday, I went to pick up a friend from some training she had to do. I pulled out of the parking lot and literally 1 minute later I was being pulled over. The police said that I was going 40 in a 25. I dont believe that is possible since I didnt even make it half a block before I saw lights. So now I have a hefty ticket, plus it was in a school zone. On top of that, I didnt have the right insurance verification on me so I got a ticket for that and a ticket because I forgot to grab my license on my way out the door ( I was in a hurry). So all in all, 3 tickets.

I called to see what it was going to cost me to get them payed off and I can't even just pay them. They are making me go to court (more money) and the judge will decide the price. I hope I am not in the hospital on court date since its a few days before my c section. I also hope the tickets wont be too much, but I am thinking it will be between 3 and 400. There goes my kids Christmas!

3 more Weeks!

Gabby will be here in 3 more weeks! I can't wait. My best friend, who is a week farther along, will be going in the day before for an induction( if Ella doesnt come sooner). Our babies will be a day apart, maybe if the same day. I think that is so cook.

We were able to find a baby bed. Its an older bed, but I think it will do until we get some money to buy here a new one. Plus, she wont be moving too much in the first month or so. We were even able to get a nice swing for a good price. I think we pretty much have everything we need for her now. Just waiting on her arrival.

Kids are getting excited also, at least Eli. He keeps asking when Gabby will be here and why its taking so long. I dont think Amelia really understands still. I am hoping that once she gets here Eli will still feel the same and Amelia will be happy. Eli wasnt too happy when Amelia came home.

As far as things go outside of the pregnancy, they are going well. Eli will be 4 in 2 months and I have no clue where the time has gone. He already has told us what kind of party he wants and everything. Amelia will be 3 in 4 months. My babies are growing so fast! It's bittersweet.

Charlie is staying busy at work. They have been commending him on his hard work and thanking him and I for allowing them to us him so much. Hopefully they will give him some sort of promotion soon.

As far as me, I am doing well. Staying busy at home with the kids, babysitting, nesting, and school. I am 6 weeks into my 8 week course. So far it has went realy well. I have an A in one class and a B in the other. Next classes my be fun though. They start on Dec 1 and I will just be getting out of the hospital. I am determined to continue though.

Hope all of you are doing well!

So, I went back to the doctors last Tues and my BP was back down in the normal range. The doctor took me off bedrest and told me to just take it easy. I went back yesterday and my BP was back up again, but he said that he was going to go ahead and let me go home and to just keep taking it easy. I also got to set up my C section time. Gabby will be here Nov 29th around 7 am. That is as long as my BP stays on good terms with the doctor.

I went to put the baby bed up to find that we are missing a few pieces. The bed is old and dropside (we bought a piece that make the dropside part stationary) so they dont sell that type of bed to get parts. Now we have to come up with money for a new bed. That wouldnt be too big of an issue if it wasnt for cable and electric messing up our bills and not wanting to fix them. Between those two bill, $400 of Charlie's check went to that alone. I am so stressed out over all of this. We have a little more than 3 weeks and no bed and could use some other stuff. I know I need to stop worrying and that things will work out, its just hard.

On top of the bed and bill mess, my laptop screen cracked today. Just what I needed. Luckily I have an extra monitor laying around so that I can do my homework still.

Im hoping that I will wake up tomorrow with a new attitude and a better day.
