Busy, Busy, Bee's!

Well, well! I just came on here to moderate comments and noticed it had been a month since my last post. So sorry! I got caught up with tons of work and all sorts of baby stuff and got behind on posting.

Nothing really new to report, other than the general election is coming up in 6 days and I've been swamped with work. However, as any expectant parent knows, a boring pregnancy is nver a bad thing.

I had my glucose test upon returning home from Buffalo and passed! I also had two visits with the Dr in the last month, were baby checked out great both times. Joey and I even got a sneak peak this week when we had an ultrasound at the office. We got to see Michael's heart, head, legs, arms, feet, and tummy! He's getting so big and sometimes it feels like there just isn't any room left.

I admitted to Joey yesterday that I'd been having mini-panic attacks thinking that I was going to squish him and that he wouldn't have enough room - but I think that has more to do with the fact that I believe I don't have enough room in our house, rather than my body. Things are getting mighty crammed and I look forward to the day when I have room for the things I ALREADY have, not even things I would like to have. I desperately wanted a fireplace this year, but there is just no space, with the baby bassinett in the living room, we don't have the space for a faux fireplace, and we've run out of room in the garage to store things. Our only option would be to rent a storage unit, of which we both refuse to do (mostly because I still have a storage unit back in Buffalo and am desperate to bring those items back here!). So, we must wait until after baby arrives to begin the search for a home with more space for our growing little family.

Other than the space issue, I am pleased to announce that I've taken up knitting once again and, with the help of some online videos, have been able to master the cable, as well as stripes! Next task, learning to work patterns into pieces. I recently found a pattern to make a Christmas stocking with. The pattern happens to be for the SAME EXACT Christmas stocking I have had my whole life! As soon as I have a moment I will head to the craft store and buy the supplies I need to make the vintage stocking. I hope to make 2 of them. One for my little baby, and one for my Husband - then we can all have matching stockings for Christmas.

I can't believe our little guy will be here in less than 2 months! Where does the time go? There might be a slight delay from this post to the next, as the general election is next week and I wll be VERY busy with work, but I will do my best to supply at least one post in the coming weeks.

Until then, wishing all my friends a very happy halloween and a happy election day too!
