Settling In

I can't believe that nearly a week has gone by without a post; we've all been adjusting to living in a new home in a 'new' place. Some things are good, like the fact that we have family members close by that love to visit and even like to have our kids over for sleepovers. Others are mixed blessings, like the fact that Mr. Fob got promoted to full-time at his job. Yes, it's a blessing, since the money is great, but it's an adjustment for all of us as he transitions to working that many hours a week. Plus his company is too small to offer benefits so we've spent many hours this week trying to arrange some sort of insurance coverage for us. I'm hoping Mr. Fob will get some sort of benefited position at a local library before next February so this baby doesn't bankrupt us. If not, at least we're saving our money now.

I've also been avoiding posting because I don't want to spend all my time moaning about how crappy I feel. I already did that last pregnancy. Some days I'm more fatigued than nauseated, others more nauseated than fatigued. Mostly I just want to lounge on the couch and eat ice cream, but sadly I have children that won't allow me to do that. We've been filling our time with other good things. Playing with cousins, shopping at DI (today I found this for only 75 cents!), going to the swimming pool, riding bikes in the driveway, summer reading at the library. Slowly I'm learning how to be the full-time mom; it will probably be easier when I want to eat something besides sour gummy bears and french fries.

Hey! That's all I want to eat too! (What will Lady Steed say if she finds out...?)
During pregnancy number three, I craved Arby's Roast Beef three times daily. And a Dr. Pepper.

Day at a time, baby; day at a time.

My favorite place to eat when I was pregnant was Cracker Barrel in Springville. It was the nice, home-cooked, comforting taste without my having to cook it and gag over the smells in my kitchen. And Chuck-a-rama has the best fries, in my opinion.

Ugh. Pregnancy. We are very excited to come play with you. And I finally got a swimsuit so we could even meet at the pool and you can feel marvelously svelte next to me. :)

LOVE the DI find.

I was sickly pregnant this time last year and definitely didn't hold back on the complaining. *Sheepish grin* So you go ahead and tell us how bad it is. We can all commiserate. Glad you're getting settled in, though! I heard you met a friend of mine the other night?

I am glad you are up and running with your computer and all :) I couldn't stop watching the foodnetwork when I was preggers.

Complain all your want :) Since we're inbetween jobs we used the BYU alumni grad med program for Jon and I for our health insurance (monthly up to 6 months I think)...prob not the best but all I was up to at the time...google utah health insurance or children's health insurance...the state seems to have a chip program with a decent income level where you pay a small premium and copay that looks really reasonable...we'll have to get together someday (when I finish unpacking, etc!)

Yep, I think pregnant would be a tricky transition to full time mommy-land. I had really hard time the first year I was home full time, and that was definately not pregnant and hormonal and tired and sick....good luck!
