Feeling discouraged



So I've been on the fence for a while about what kind of vehicle we MB's would be owning now, what with all these monkies and all.  As most of us can relate, the idea of a minivan made me want to run with scissors!  

But we gave in ... We're the proud owners of a minivan, it's a Toyota.  I hope it's not a piece of junk.



All of that aside, not to sound like doom and gloom, because I don't want to be that way, I'm not giving up hope on my baby b.

We were suppose to get the van tonight (Tuesday). But because of the holiday it's not here yet, but we have still have the loaner.  (see there's a bright side to most things)

We were also suppose to bring home baby B tomorrow (Wednesday), but we're starting over.. 
5 more days.

It's this stuff.

Updaters.

Sorry folks, it's been a while.  But I have good reason.

My twinbies, well they were due june 19th. We were scheduled for c-section at 38 weeks on June 7th... Well they had a mind of their own and the good Lord had a plan of His own. 


Monkey Butt at 34 weeks and 2 days. 

I had this great idea that for mothers day I wanted to take the kids to the zoo.  That was a lot of fun but it spiraled from there. My swelling was getting worse and worse and I was starting to have more pains, so on Thursday morning.. I just couldn't take the pain anymore, I was obviously having contractions... I never had those with my other two monkeys, so this was new.  Well, like I said I couldn't stand it anymore.. I decided to call my work and family, I was going to swing by my Dr office and have them check me out.. Just to make sure they weren't too close or anything like that.
Yes they're definitely contractions and they wanted me to go to the hospital .

Oh you know how that goes, but I made calls and had Mr MB on the way to get me as well as my aunt and grandma.  

So the checking begins.

By the middle of the day I was ready to go home, I'd already been pumped with so much fluid that I was even more miserable, they'd offered to sedate me (which I refused) and one nurse even went as far to tell me that if I left it would be against their orders. When the Dr came in with his shots, I almost had him talked into letting me leave, but the shots they'd given me didn't make the contractions stop and they came back to tell me I definitely would be spending the night. With my other monkeys at school and daycare, this was stressful to me. 

Settled in for the night and the discomfort gets greater.  

Sometime after midnight, my twin A decided it was time.  It felt like he kicked the hell out of me and his water broke.  Looks like it's going to be go time.

My baby monkeys were born Friday, May 13th and 34 weeks and 4 days. Given them an automatic trip down to the NICU.





These pictures are pretty recent.  

My baby A is home with us. My baby B is still in the NICU. 

But we're getting closer.  

I'll try to update more later. 

Thanks for all whose hung in there.

Should be working







One of those weeks where Id rather not be working, but I think we all go through sometimes.

It's OK though, just another day in paradise.  

I think we're getting our heads up out of water around here, I hope.  We hired a new guy and he seems to be doing OK. He's still here with us, but it's only been a few days.  12 hours knows how to wear people down ,I guess.  Hard work being a tow truck driver.

So I'm hopeful all is well in the land of yours. It's a short post today (again) because I want to check in and see what you all have been up to.  

Hanging there, as always
Yall do the same

31 weeks



I haven't updated my pregnancy file in a while.
We're at the 31 weeks mark (well a few days ago)
To say the least, it's getting harder and harder to do most things.
Especially stay awake.

But I'm trying 

this picture reminds me of another blogger friend, I won't name names or anything.

Happy Thursday yall ..

I'm going to go back to sleeping on my desk!

Just some babbling



It's been too long, but I'm just going to get to it.  Beats laying down dribble about how lazy I am with my blog.

Life is, shall we say a little crazy.  But things are coming together, as they usually tend to do and I'm doing my best to hang in there and not choke anyone or break any neck bones.  That's always my  favorite.

I miss keeping up with the bloggoworld, so I'm hoping to dedicate a few minutes and see what you all have been up to.

Hoping all is well.  

Keep hanging in there

Whoa, a thousand times. (and one)

So I just realized my last post, the one where I complained about feeling less that 100% and crying about the weather.. 
That was my 1000th post.
What a waste right!
Can't believe I've posted 1000 posts, never really thought about where this blog would go or if anyone would even read it when i started it, but hey.. I'm glad I did.
It's raining here... but not cold.  I'll take that.

-Hang in there.

bipolar weather

Happy Wednesday Dingleberries. 
I'd blame the camel for my feeling less that 100% today, but that would be unfair.

Today's feeling of poo are mostly to blame on this bipolar weather we have here in the great southern [suppose to be warm all the time in the south] state of Georgia!  Yes I know we're not Florida and all of their perfections, HA! [Dare I remind you of the bath salt zombie incident and then there was that thing with the skittles.] Just sayin' they're not as perfect as you think they are, but it is warmer there..  

But I'm rambling.

So they called for another "winter storm" 2 days ago....


Mind you, it was COLD, but nothing like this... Nothing like anything, pretty sure it didn't even snow or anything.  I think our state enjoys giving people anxiety. Luckily it doesn't work on me, so I left the house without a jacket and most likely socks.
Today, it's like 54 degrees...

Needless to say, 
my head it stopped up completely.... It runs and runs and it's red and hurts like a mad, but there is still no air passing through this thing.  

Darn our bipolar Georgia weather for my current mood swing and terrible head cold. 
Is it time to go home yet?
