This and that

Wow... it has been a long week, but it went by pretty fast! Okay, so here is what has happened in a nut shell:
* We had testing all week at the school, so no teaching
* We closed our cell phone account
* We chose baby names (but we are not telling... to many people had to put in their two cents about the names we had picked out last time)
* We found a momma cat and 3 kittens up in the engine area of the car... It took almost an hour to get them all out!
* I have offically told all of my co-workers and students that I am moving and I am pregnant!

And, as always, I am sure I left something out, but I am human, and pregnant, so I am excused! Have a good day!

It's coming together...

WOW! In just over a week, I will have been in this world for 26 years.... then a month and a day after that, I will be on a plan with Gabby heading up north. Now, if we could just push a mute button on my mother in law so the packing could be done without all her complaining! We are about half way done packing, and the plan is for it ALL to be done before Gabby and I leave. We are taking beds apart this weekend.... we will have our matresses on the floor.... except for Gabby, her bed stays together so that she can remain locked up at night, haha. Her crib is easy to take apart though.

This is an easy week at work, testing all week! So... kick back, relax and read instructions..... Well, I don't get to sit back and relax, I have to walk around the room, but still, it is a cake walk.

But, next week, it is back to the norm.

Frosh Week & the GREAT Beanies!

As you know, my family will be heading back to Canada. We are tired of Texas and are ready for a change. I have been going through stuff and packing things that I need to keep, and tossing things that I think it is time to let go. Well.... I came across my FROSH WEEK BEANIE! Yes, I still have it! I'd like to take a poll.... if I the only one that hung on to this silly thing? If I am the only one.... I may keep it, just for the fact that I have it.... if I am not, I want to know who is as silly as I am!

OMG!! The week went by soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow! I am so glad that it is Friday... I needed the weekend so bad! We will spend most of the weekend packing, but I think we may take a trip to the park, since the weather should be nice. I really don't have much more to say... just wanted to give my quick update!

* Baby clothes too small for Gabby
* My pre-pregnancy clothes
* 1 box of Gabby's toys
* Most of our picture frames
* Baby swing
* Baby bouncer
* Pack-n-play

We have a lot of work to do!!!

Little House on the Island

I think we may begin our own TV show once we move up. It makes for a cute title... Just a little take off of Little House on the Prairie. I am getting pretty excited about moving up! I only have 6 weeks left of working for the school, and then I AM FREE! Chris and I need to find a house with yard space so that Joe can run around. Joe is a family member, so the house has to work for him too! So there is this house down the street from may parents place that Chris has seen from the outside. We know that it needs work, but we want something that we can make our own... so we think this may work. I have never seen it, but I hope to at least see some pictures before making the BIG decision! We can rent it to start out, and then work towards buying it, once we get on our feet!

Well, that is about all I have for today, but I will leave you with a picture of Gabby giving her baby kisses!

Hard Boiled Eggs

Okay, so I feel like a retard! I seriously can't cook anything! So, I was cooking the eggs so that I could make Chris some deviled eggs (he loves them, and I have the day off from work). Anyway... As I was peeling the shell off one of the last eggs, I could tell the yolk was not fully cooked, so I popped the de-shelled egg on a plate and cooked it in the microwave for 20 seconds. When I put the knife in it to cut it in half, it EXPLODED!!! There is egg ALL over my kitchen!!!! UGH!

**Now, you all know what a bad idea it is to let me in the kitchen alone!**

A wee little update....

Okay, so I have found that the closer I get to the end of the school year, the less time I have spent on blogger. Well, this is our update, in a nutshell....

* Pregnancy is going well... I only have mild tummy issues
* Gabby is turning into a whinney toddler (UGH!)
* 7 weeks until my contract is over!!!
* 8ish weeks until our "possible" moving date
* My grandparents have been married for 50 years!!
* My parents should be close to Canada, if not already back across the boarder.
* The house has not sold yet :(
* We have not done much packing
* I need to throw away a lot of junk that I have saved due to my upbringing as a packrat!
* I have yet to gain weight, actually I have lost a few pounds!

I am sure I forgot something... I may add to this list, so check back.... My next step is adding pictures to my photo blog... so check that too....
