Overdue update

It's been too long. But I have SO much going on these days.

Where shall we start.....
Work is awesome, and super busy which is great. Job security *wink

Church is great, we missed this Sunday because baby A was NOT having it. She needed a nap right when we were walking out the door. Sooo, it didn't work out. This week it will. ::hangs head in shame::

Speaking of baby A, she got her toenails painted for the first time!!!

Super cute right?!

I've been taking this medicine the Dr gave me for my back, and it makes me feel like I'm on crack. I start sweating, and shaking and my heart starts racing. No bueno.
I had a consultation today with the pain management doctor who will be giving me the epidural type medicine injection hopefully that will happen soon; he also gave me some new meds that hopefully wont crack me out. SN: I've never done crack, so I am only assuming that is how I would feel.

Back to baby A, she can stand up by herself, and stay standing unassisted for almost a minute!! She will be walking any day. I'm so excited.

We're going to Tennessee in December, which I'm TOTALLY excited about. Get to see the fam and spend time with good people who care about us.

OH My best friend in the world is pregnant!!!!!! I am SO excited and can't wait. This will be baby #3 for her, and the first time I'll be living in the same state as her when she has it!!! I can't wait!!

That is all. Sorry for bouncing around. <3

Have a good week.

So I got these new meds yesterday from the Dr. for my back pain.

It says, take 1-2 pills twice a day as needed; it also says to take them before the onset of pain and it will work better. Well, since the pain is always there, I take them morning and night. Today was my first say of taking them, and they have quite the effects.

This morning, I took two, because my back pain, believe it or not, is the worst when I'm at work. And lemme tell you, I was SO high. I felt like I was on crack. I was sweating, my heart was racing, hands were shaking, and I felt like I was going to hurl. Luckily, I didn't. I will say though, I wasn't in any pain :)

Tonight, I've only taken one, and I feel like I could fall asleep sitting here. I can barely hold my eyes open, so please forgive any typos or random jumping around.

The little will be walking any day now. I'm beyond excited, she can stand up all by herself, and she pulls up on everything; walls, doors, people, tables.....anything and everything.

We started planning her (quickly approaching!!) birthday, but I think we've decided to change some things. The Mr and I really need to sit down, and get organized, October 30th will be here before we know it!!

We don't really have any plans for the weekend. The hubs is on call, so it's hard to set anything up since there's always the chance that he'll have to work. He even worries about going to church. He doesn't want to have to leave in the middle of service, but it hasn't happened so far ;)
Next weekend we'll be having a nice date night. It's long overdue. We've got a great sitter for the little. Miss A loooooves her, and the Mr and I do too. She said, "don't pay me, just buy me dinner." Um OK! haha. She is genuinely one of the sweetest people I have ever met, and I'm glad to have her in my life. <3
I'm so happy tomorrow is Friday.

Have a great weekend! :)

Today I learned the results of my latest MRI. I've had 2 now since we had the car accident. 
And what I found out today was pretty unsettling. 
There is a good chance I'll need to have surgery. 
But I'm not worried. 

Let go, and let God. 
I am. Are you? 

Have a great week :)

Bucket List

I've never actually sat down and thought about what I would have on my bucket list;

Lets discover mine together, shall we?

(In no particular order)

See a Red Sox game at Fenway

See Rent on Broadway

Do the Sling Shot at Old Town

Sky dive

Go white water rafting

Visit another country.

Everything on my list is totally achievable. So I guess I have no excuse to do them all.
I'm sure this isn't everything, but it's what I could think of on a whim.

You can be the judge, but I need to tell this story to the interwebz.

Last weekend, the hubs, babe and myself went to Ikea, but you know that already. Remember how I told you about the bad ass picture we bought for our living room that was too big for our car? Well, here's how that went;

We had time to kill, and some $$ to spend. We've been planning on buying this picture for a few weeks

I was positive it would fit in our car. If not in the trunk, then wedged between both passenger seats up against the doors (does that make sense?)
So we get there, and we're all excited be buying the newest addition to our place!
We get in and out pretty quickly, not before buying a stuffed doggy for the little one! (She loves dogs)

She was happy, we were happy, although we did discuss how awesome it would be to go in there and drop 10 or 15k. One can dream right?!

Annnnnyhow, we get outside, it's hotter than hell, as always, and we get to the car.
Guess what?!

I was wrong. It didn't fit in the trunk. Close, but no cigar. So I'm like, ok we can wedge it inside!
No dice!
Really?! How can this be possible?! It doesn't seem like it's that big! Clearly my judgement is a bit foggy. So I have the bright idea (and really our only option) of strapping it....wait for the roof. Yep.

We actually did it.

I wasn't too embarrassed. Then the Mr. tells me I'll have to hang my arm out of the window and hold it down.

Um, really?

Yep. Once we started getting some speed, the wind would catch underneath it and rip it right off. I didn't want that to happen since we were so excited to have it, not to mention that it was my idea to strap it to the roof instead of calling for backup.

So we pull out, I've got my arm out, hanging tight, not biggie.

Then we pull on to I4. We get going pretty fast, and OH SHIT! It's really flying up! I don't want to lose it! Crap! WTF are we going to do?! We can't drive any slower for goodness sake! We're on the interstate!

I shift my body sideways, (still in my seat belt) roll the window down, and throw BOTH arms up and hang on for dear life! I can only imagine how ridiculous I must have looked. Had I seen someone else doing this... I totes would have judged them.

But alas, you do what you've gotta do.

A scratched elbow, 2 bruised forearms (and ego) later, we made it home.

Was it worth it, sure. Would I do it again, nope.

Learn from your mistakes my friends.
