Onions And Moving Day

Week 17

Baby’s Length: 5 in.

Baby’s Weight: 3.5 oz.

Baby’s Size: Onion

Good thing I like onions. I didn’t use to though… Before I got pregnant, I would pick onions off of whatever I was eating, regardless of who was watching. I hated them and couldn’t bring myself to eat them. Then I got pregnant… Now I love them.

Same with mushrooms, bananas, and cauliflower. I suddenly like those damn things! It’s bizarre and making me think I’ve lost my mind. I still hate swiss cheese though… so I can’t have lost my mind completely. Just mostly.

Pregnancy is still going fantastic. No complaints! I swear the baby is taking kick boxing lessons. And I know it’s only going to get worse! I can’t believe how much the baby actually moves now. We’re talking at least 10 times a day for 1-10 minutes each time. It’s really cool though. It makes me feel like we’re connected and like everything is okay…

Still haven’t called to make the appointment for the dating ultrasound and to find out the sex of the baby. Life has just been so crazy these last couple weeks!!!


For all of those not keeping track, I moved on Saturday. I am now a real New Hampshire resident.

My best friend Jaclyn and her boyfriend Elijah, my brother in law Dougie, Dan and I packed up the U-Haul on Sat morning and drove to our new apartment. It took 41/2 hours to pack the U-Haul and 3 hours to unpack it. As we were finishing unloading, my mom came to drop off our new couch and glider rocker and then pick up the extra furniture we weren’t going to use.

After that, we went out to eat at a fancy little Chinese restaurant called the Tea Garden. I couldn’t believe that there was no one there on a Saturday night! Made me wonder if there was something I should know, that everyone else in town did… The food was absolutely fabulous though. Unless I hear otherwise, I’m definitely going to go back.

I won’t bore you with the dramatic details of our move. Thankfully, no one got hurt, U-Haul wasn’t a pain in the ass this time, the apartment is wonderful, and we finally have all of our belongings in one spot. Yay!

This morning at 3:00am, Dan left to go to the airport. He has a business trip this week in Texas. So I’ll be here all by my lonesome until Thursday afternoon. Yes, he’s going to miss Valentine’s Day. 🙁 It’s a lot of work unpacking everything by myself and I wish Danny was here, but he wouldn’t be much help if he was here anyway. I think it might actually be better that I get to unpack everything by myself. I won’t be getting mad at Dan for not helping me the whole time!! lol

I finished unpacking the kitchen and setting everything up in there yesterday. Today, I worked on the bathroom. I’m almost done in there… I think I’m going to try to work on the living room next, but I’m not sure. I should do laundry, but I don’t have any quarters.

So, I just wanted to take a little break, sit down for a few minutes. Thought you might appreciate a quick update! This is the first time I have sat down at a computer for more than 5 minutes, since last Wednesday when I was in California. Speaking of which, I will post more pictures from that trip soon.
