31 Weeks

Tuesday, June 25, 2013
I decided I would do an update in between moving and school homework. I have my homework done for the most part except a class that is due tomorrow but the teacher forgot to change the dates to open the discussion board so I am patiently waiting on that. I have only two chapters to read for homework in another class and then the homework assigned and I will be good until the next set opens. Today I am 31 weeks pregnant, I cannot believe I am that far!! This pregnancy is definitely going by super fast. I had a regular check-up today and baby is head down but he still continues to do flips from one side to another which doctor said is normal until about 34 weeks. My belly is measuring 32 weeks and he was measuring a week ahead at my 20 week ultrasound. I am surprised they won't move my due date! What if he comes at 36 weeks but is actually 37 weeks and I have to leave him at the hospital for a week, not happening! He likes to jab his foot in my side and leave it there until I push it away. We have everything we need right now except pants, I cannot for the the life of me find any 0-3 months jeans!! Everywhere we have went, there is nothing. He has a bunch of onesies but no pants! I am getting frustrated with that! We are officially moving into our house Thursday. Two men and a truck is moving all of our big items and we are slowly moving everything else between today and tomorrow. I am ready to be in my own house. I don't want to pay electric on both places but I have to until our lease is up which is fine as long as only one place we are using electric. Once we get everything moved in and settled (we are just going to be waiting on our new couch set and dining set), I am going to apply for my daycare license. I have everything needed to start up, I just have to start the application process. I found these little pregnancy questions on this blog and decided to use them to document the rest of mine.

I am alive

Saturday, June 22, 2013
I am a alive. I have been super busy with school and keeping up with it. I have bad news, I got laid off from my job on Wednesday, June 19th so I am freaking out trying to find out how I am going to make ends meet. Luckily I have financial aid coming in and I will be getting unemployment, just waiting on hearing from them as to how much. I applied for foodstamps for the time being. It sucks but I have to do what I have to do. This is the time where I am going to be proactive and apply for my daycare license. I am almost done with the last minute touches for the house and then we are going to move into it. Once I move in, I am going to apply for my license and get all those things going. Right now I am going to do it on my own with the six kids limit and them up it to 12 and get a daycare helper. Luckily Donovan is out of work right now and he can watch Arianna and the baby so I can have the full six kids instead of four. I have faith that things will look up soon. I got everything the baby needs, I wish I could have more clothes but for now, he has enough to get him through a week or two without laundry. I feel bad and like I have failed but it isn't my fault. The property was for sale and I knew that and new owners were taking over soon. I interviewed with them and they supposedly liked me but never made an offer. Two maintenance men stayed WITHOUT knowing how much they are making. I wasn't comfortable accepting a position not knowing how much I was going to be making first, that is a big no-no for me. So right now I am taking this much needed down time to focus on school and my family and spend more time at home. So I might be able to update more often, maybe not because school is hectic right now. I have two papers to write, which I started on one and finished one, just waiting on the guidelines so I make sure I did it okay. I have four chapters to read by Thursday and do the discussion boards and everything and then probably two more in another class starting tomorrow. I am super busy but that is okay. It keeps my mind off of things. So I just wanted to stop in and touch base with everyone and let you know what is going on. 6 weeks from Tuesday I will be full-term (37 weeks). I have a doctors appointment and WIC appointment so I will be pretty busy. Anyways hope you ladies are doing okay! Ps; if anybody knows any LEGIT work from home jobs that I can take part in for some extra income or to live off of, let me know!

Sunday Social - Summer!

Sunday, June 2, 2013
Well something funny happened with blogger and it deleted ALL the blogs I follow or at least it looks like it by the way my blogger dashboard has no blogs there. Hm I will investigate! I should update soon, maybe. I have lots of homework and school just started today lol.
So sorry for not updating, I started my new position and am officially on my own starting tomorrow. Definitely nervous. Also we have a temp. assistant helping me out for the time being and we will see where that goes. There is so much I have to do tomorrow and I am going to delegate some stuff out to her like typing up the renewals and everything. Ugh. So much to do so little time!

1. What is your favorite Social Media outlet?
Oh man, I have quite a few but right now I haven't been using anything other than Instagram and Pinterest. Ahh I am definitely addicted to Pinterest.

2. Do you subscribe to any daily news reads?
I do subscribe to my local news feeds, such as WILX and WLNS. I probably will subscribe to CNN sooner or later since I check that website quite a bit a lot.
