I'm just wondering when a mother gets some rest? So tired.

Also, realizing that the things I used to do that were relaxing to me are no longer relaxing because I have the "help" of my little buddy.

Today I am thankful for Asa sleeping in until 6:20.

I can't believe how little time there actually is to write on this blog. My life is about to completely change again and get even busier. I will be heading back to teach 2nd grade in September. It is the first year I am not at all excited to be going back. I've really enjoyed the summer and am very used to my new routine. I have to keep reminding myself that I only have to teach for 3 months though b/c I'm due to have baby #2 on Dec. 1st. Here's the other reason my life is going to get completely crazy. Don't get me wrong. I am very excited about having a new addition I just don't know if I'm ready for it. My son is 28 months old now and he poops me out. 3 weeks ago we put him into his big boy bed and this has been a major adjustment. It is rare that he actually sleeps through the night. For example, last night he feel asleep at 8:30. He then was awake from 12:30-1:40 (once I'm awake it takes me sooo long to go back to sleep and the baby also starts kicking and I really can't sleep w/ that going on) and then at 4:14 he decides that he wants to wake up and eat. Oh, boy! We finally managed to let him sleep in our bed for a few extra minutes (I again didn't sleep.) and he was up for good at 5:30. CRAZY! I'm so tired. It's nights like this that don't make me look forward to being up every 1-2 hours to feed a newborn. I wonder when a mother will ever get to sleep again. I do not look forward to starting my MS meds again b/c they were rough to adjust too and sleep is a major benefit.

I'll do my best to write more. My hands are tired.

Today I am thankful for my friend Carrie.

I need to find time to look for a new profile pic. My baby is now a little boy.
Wow! I can't believe how long it has been since I have written. I suppose I am still figuring out how to balance work, family and all the other things that need to get done in a day.

Yesterday was my last day of teaching. I'm on summer vacation! I was all set to teach summer school until I visited my OB (I'm 16 weeks pregnant.). I have placenta previa and was told to take it easy. I can't exercise, lift more that 5 pounds, or have sex. All of this restrictions have made my life a bit more challenging. My son was going to daycare b/c I had to teach summer school and that was how we were going to pay for him to go. Well, now since I can't pick him up and put him in his crib he is still going to daycare. This makes me sad. I want to spend time with him b/f baby comes. I take him a bit later than normal and pick him up early.

As for my MS- I'm doing well b/c I'm pregnant. I get so nervous to think about starting Rebif again. I really hate giving myself injections. Agh.

Today I am thankful for my Dunkin Donut gift card (from one of my students).

Today I am thankful for steroids. I am hoping they help with my vision.

I haven't written here in a while b/c I'm going through a grumpy stage in my life. I'm not sure there would be much positive to write. I'm dealing with a lot these days and just am not ready to vent.

I haven't been keeping up with this-sorry. Here's a few things I am thankful for to catch up:
- I am thankful to know Asa will have a cousin coming in August. Yes, my sister is pregnant! I am so so so happy for her. It is going to make it that much more difficult to have 8 hours separating us though. Oh, how I wish we were only 10 min. from each other. I want to be there for her for so many things during her pregnancy. She played such a big part in my pregnancy and then on the day Asa was born I don't think we could have done it without her. I want so bad to give her back what she did for me. I think I am going to struggle with this.

- I am thankful for these 11 days I've had together with Asa and Tim. It is going to be so hard for us all to go back to work and daycare on Monday. We still have Sat. and Sun. to enjoy.

- I am thankful that my parents came up to play with Asa while Tim and I spent some time shopping together. I enjoy our time together.

FYI: My husband and I are working on getting pregnant again. It would be so great if my sister and I were pregnant at the same time. I am doing great being off of my meds. If I'm not pregnant by the end of Jan. my OB will put me on clomide. I'm on a bit of a time crunch due to the fact I have MS and need to get back on my meds. No pressure.
