Well I did finally tell my Gramma (moms mom) this afternoon... I'm so bad I didn't want to tell her at all...( I actually asked my cousin to tell her for me) I just didn't want her negative reaction... she can be and doesn't mean to be but just so very negative, and honestly I didn't want hear it from her at all. I told her and she was all "What are you Nuts!" and then a bit went by and she was much better and then became supportive... I did mention to her that all I wanted was positive support and that if I was receiving any sort of negativity from anyone I would just be cutting them out until they decided to not be so negative. I reminded her that I received a lot of negativity when I was pregnant with both Billie and Kayne and that I was just not interested in entertaining that kind of attitude from anyone again. I do think that she got my drift.

All in all it turned into a very nice chat with Gr. Dot and I do hope that as time goes by it will only be better between her and I when I comes to this topic.

Oh Sunny Day

Oh what a nice glorious sunny day we are having here today..... but cmon! Yesterday was snowing, sleating....windy windy windy.... so I didn't head over to Quadra for my spinning group, home I stayed. And then today is absolutely marvelous! I just can't believe this winter weather sometimes.

So hear I am today cleaning up the mess downstairs (includes sink covered in paint and all painting stuff still covered in paint as well.....like really? still covered in paint! NICE) that Kevin has left for me to deal with when it is oh so nice outside.....

Downstairs Bedroom *Kayne*

Well well well.... I do belive that the boys rooms is finally done or at least close enough to done that I can't tell the difference ;)

Kayne and Kevin moved his bed, lamp, stereo and clothes down last night so that he could sleep in his new room as Kevin leaves today to head back to AB.

Kayne was so happy to get to sleep in his new room last night... when I went down to help him set his stereo clock it was soo freaking cold down there that I actually hoped under his blankets while I helped him hehe. I hope he doesn't freeze while he sleeps. When I left his room and he was all tucked in an laying there all happy happy... he asked if I was going to turn off the light that is just outside his door? Like with the uhm mom your not going to turn off that light yet right? Very cute, so I left it on until I went to bed and I do think  will pick up a night light of some sort today so that I don't have to leave on said light all the time as it isn't just on light on that switch it's two. I will also measure for his window covering today since he is at ground level now I really don't like the idea of just anyone looking in the window at him when he's sleeping or whatever.

So all in all the room is done and the boy is happy happy!

I'll take some pics today sionce it sunny out.

Announcement


Well here it is the big announcement that I have been absolutely dying to spill!.....

But I just couldn't do it here until I told all of my girlfriends at knitting group tonight :)

I still need to tell my spinning group and my ladies groups and won't be able to until next Tuesday and Wednesday respectively now....



So here it is after holding it in for close to two weeks....



We are pregnant!
Yes you read that right :) we are, we are, we are!




After a little bit of trying (like one cycle) and vola! WE did it :)

My EDD is Sept 25... so that puts me at 6 weeks tomorrow.

Kevin asked me to wait to spread the news until he came home from AB so after picking him Monday afternoon and then the kids from school... I went straight over to my Pa's place and told him and the kids together.... You might say that I had a different way of telling them I told them that I had come down with a condition over the last month that was causing me to pee a lot but that it should clear up in 8 months or so.... and my dad right away got it... he was all your pg?! That's really good Billie was all I new it!and Kayne well he was all no way! that's cool :) I told Pa that this was is very much intentional...and that we are happy... he was happy too!

So we get home and Billie gets on the PC (with permission might I add) and immediately changes her MSN status to "mothers pregnant" I ask to to be a bit more polite about it... as she typically calls me mother but I don't care for it.. and well it was sounding a little on the cold side... so she made it a bit nicer and I get to thinking well she's on the phone right now with my step-sisters daughter and OMG what if she tells her mom and then she calls our parents! F*** so on the phone I get and I NEVER call the parents at night only in the am... so I do some basic chit chat with my mom and then ask if  Marshall (my step-dad) was home and and ask if he could also get on the phone so that I could say hi to him but for mom to just stay on the line because it would only be a second.. so again with the mindless chit chat and a bit of can you hear me oh I couldn't hear you just to make sure that they could both hear me... and then I give them the same line as I gave my Pa and the kids... and my mom is all "OH GREAT!" totally doesn't get it and thinks that I have some illness now or something of the like and Marshall right away gets it and say "are you pg?" all excited and happy sounding... and then mom finally clues in ... boy oh boy did that ever give us a laugh... they were both very happy for us and mom perked up a bit after realizing that I wasn't actually just calling for idle chit chat :)


So the long of the short of it is

We are pregnant... I had my first midwife appointment today and it went well ... I have already got a decent amount of stuff lined up or in the works for hen I will need it... Kevin and the kids immediately went through the name book and Billie got on the PC and was looking at names , so they already have a boy  and girl list.... I have 8 months approx to go and have already done more in the first couple of days of sharing the news than we did a month before the kids were even due..... this is good


Now for a smooth pregnancy and delivery :)
 



I have tried and tried to get the pregnancy ticker to load to this page but I just can't... oh well....

I do have it on my main profile page if you want to check it out... it's pretty neat :)

eta : So weird I did actually post this last night... but for whatever reason it just wouldn't show up on the main friends page, it did however show up on my main page???? but cmon I wanted it to be seen.... ;)

Downstairs Bedroom *Kayne*

Well Kayne's bedroom has really taken some shape over the last 2 weeks.. we have a new sub-floor on top of the super uneven cement floor that was out 2 inches! all of the crown moulding is painted and was hung today. The window molding an ledge shelf also went in today and will be trimmed out and stained during the next couple of days, I painted the bottom portion of the room so that when Kevin came home is was done so that he could get to it and do his fancy pants paint job :) We ordered the flooring in on Monday so it should be here (in town that is) by the 6th and then it ill just take an afternoon to have it installed...and then the baseboard molding will follow that... very soon very soon... hopefully the boy can be moved downstairs by the time Kevin goes back to work... we'll see :)

I will be sure to take some picks of his wicked awesome painting when it's all done ;)
