What a Week

Well I don't have any cool pictures or anything to post....even if I HAD had some they might be lost forever because our computer crashed this week. Fortunately we have backed everything up on an external hard drive but not since May so anything since then is long gone. :( I hate when stuff like that happens!

BUT the computer wasn 't the only thing that crashed this week....a deer also decided to crash into the side of the car while Chris was driving 3:30 in the afternoon...on a regular very populated road. So weird! Fortunately Chris was not hurt at all. The car was pretty messed up around the front driver side fender but after some work from Chris it is at least drivable again (which is good because we considered getting a new one for a couple of days and....lets just say, its not an option :) ) Both of our cars have been having some trouble recently so this on top of that was not very encouraging but we are ok and still have 2 cars that are drivable at least.

I had my 24 wk appointment on Wednesday and everything was fine. I have started meeting the other doctors in the clinic (since you never know who will be on call when you go into labor). Our baby boy had a good heart beat and I was measuring just right according to the doc so good news all around. :)
On another note I am starting to feel exceptionally large at this point (which scares me when I still have 4 months left).

It has been a draining week. Basically Chris and I are fine but exhausted after a long long week with no days or nights off. I have been waking up (to use the bathroom) every night and then finding myself unable to get back to sleep for sometimes up to 2 hours each night so I am truly feeling EXHAUSTED at this point. I even took the doctors advice and took a benedryl last night but still had the same problem. Hoping to make up for that tonight by going to bed early cause its the only break we will have this weekend. Tomorrow its up and going by 7 to get to Charleston to be with the rest of the staff from church and their families for the day and then sunday we will be at the lake all day with our sunday school class for our class party....then here comes monday again. :) Oh my goodness I need a day off! Haha.

Here is a question for anyone who happens to have an opinion - what is a good price for each pack size of diapers?? I have wanted to start stocking up some but I never know when I am getting the best deal. Anyone know? Susan?? (you are the only one who ever comments - haha).

Hope everyone else has a great weekend!

Ohh, and I almost forgot...
My very sweet and thoughful husband knew I was having a rough day and he bought me flowers! :) It definitely made the work day better.

  1. Ok first of all - you are nowhere near looking huge...I assure you.

    Second of all, I've had the same problem falling back asleep after nightly bathroom mind just keeps racing. After a couple nights of that, I'm so exhausted it doesn't happen anymore though. :)

    Third, for jumbo packs of diapers, around $8 is what I would consider a "normal" price - for Huggies and Pampers. I don't know about any other brands b/c those are the ones I get coupons for. Are you registered at Target? If not, register there - just for a few things - cause they should give you a free baby tote bag with coupons and you can stack those coupons with manufacture coupons. I just went there yesterday and got diapers, wipes, and baby lotion for $7 (I had a $5 gift card too but even $12 would have been good for that). I would buy a jumbo pack for about $5-6 though - I mean, I would consider that a decent price. As far as the big boxes of diapers, around $18 is about normal but I'd say a "good" price would be more like $12 or $13 (if you could find rebates, coupons, etc to get it down to the price).

    Diaper deals are best to catch at the drug stores - CVS and Rite Aid. Keep an eye out each week for their sales that give Extra Care Bucks (CVS) or rebates (Rite Aid) when you buy diapers or other baby products (they tend to do it about once a month or so)...and don't forget to use manufacture coupons there too. Check to help with that.

    Hope that helps!! :)
