1) Biggie, and not really new news, but I had my second loss last weekend, thus no Friday five last week. I posted about it here. This is an update post. I did tell my sister yesterday about it. She knew about the first one. The only other thing I've come to realize is that I guess I kind of assumed people got pregnant when they wanted to. I never thought that they may have had struggles of their own, and that's probably because they aren't talked about. So then I think I want to talk about it, because if that can help someone it's good. But I am not to the point where I can talk about it without being sad. Someday....
2)I painted the spare room in the basement last week. I won the paint months ago and haven't gotten to it because a few things needed to be done it that room first. The paint looked white when I poured it out on the tray, and it's kind of a creamy grayish color. I think I might end up doing an accent wall in the room though. It's a little to light of a color for me. I choose this color Sheep's wool. I was proud of my painting skills this time around. I usually push to hard on the roller and get drips, but not this time. :) Despite my cramping I finished it on Saturday when Rob was hunting. It gave me something to do and kept my mind distracted.
Rob replaced the light fixture and that made a difference. I was going to scrape the popcorn ceiling and I was sure I could have rocked it. I read about how to do it, but in the end I was just lazy. I have one small section to finish painting though. There was a pile of the old trim in the way and I didn't want to have to keep moving it around and I didn't have a proper way to dispose of it at the time. It was to much for the garbage can.
We have to get new trim, but we'll have to borrow a truck for that. Rob is going to replace the other outlet with a tamper proof one. I need to replace the window of insulate it better, and put up a closet door or something there, but then it will be done.
3) On Sunday when Rob was hunting again I went to Michaels and bought stuff for several craft projects. I'm going to make puzzle blocks for my nephew for christmas. I found the idea here (Fabric blocks) I'm taking scrapbook paper, cutting it and using modge podge to put it on. Total cost will be under $10. I have a gift for him that I bought cheap months ago, and one that I won so he will be all set.
4) I just found out this week that I will have a week off of work. The Friday after Halloween until the next Friday. They booked a last minute vacation. I'm super excited, but worried that I'll want to spend money in my free time. I need to be productive.
5) I finally found an ob/gyn that I could get into without having to fax my medical records from my pcp before I could even get an appt. So I have an appt on 10/30 at 10:30 (I know that nobody cares what time it is; I just though that was kind of funny). While I don't expect answers at this one, it will get me established somewhere at least.
