So I've heard it tell that every home has a junk room. So if you don't have a junk room you may not be normal. Grantid it may not be as bad as this, you know you've got one. THIS is mine. It is the: cat litter, sewing and crafts, present wrapping, camping gear, ironing, useless decorations and a partridge in a pear tree room. I even found Ryans tools in here. Honey...the garage.
Anyway this has been my eye sore of the house since we've moved in and it just keeps getting worse. So much so I can't even do any sewing. Well with Christmas around the corner I already have 4 sewing projects on my to-do list, so I figured it was time to repent of my chaotic room and have a clean slate.
After much time cleaning and listening to Trans Siberian Christmas albums to keep up the cheer, here is my clean slate. It's still not pretty, this is going to be Adelle's room in a week or so. So it will go through yet another transformation, but its a start, and I can use it until then. I have already started on my first creation. It's SO much easier to be inspired in a clean room. Don't you agree?
OK OK, so this picture has NOTHING to do with my post. Really actually it's the exact opposite. But I thought it was rather funny, and even kinda clean, in a spermy kinda way :o).
So the REAL reason for this post is the announcement that Ryan and I are back in the "9 Months of Waiting and Pain" club. If it was a club, I should start one if it isn't. It appears fertility is not our trial in this life, and yet at the same time...it is! But seriously, we are very excited. It looks like the little thing will be here around May 14th, so Adelle and "IT" will be approx. 15 1/2 months apart. So I am currently 11 weeks, almost 3 months, ALMOST done with my first trimester, YAY! That's pretty good right? They'll be close siblings? That was what I always wanted. It does feel very weird to be doing it all over again. I went to my first apt. at our Birthing Center out here in Wasilla and it felt SO weird to be back on that examination table again, feels like it was just yesterday I was being measured and prodded and all that fun stuff. It goes by SO fast!!!!
The good thing about the waiting game is Ryan and I have more time to argue about names, boys and girls. We agree on nothing accept the last name (this is a good thing I know), but first names are....not so easy. (My feelings are if the Dad gets to pick ALL the last names that should leave the Mom with the majority vote on the first names. Don't you agree?)
So it appears for Christmas Adelle has asked for her two front teeth. Thanks Santa for getting this done so promptly! (Somethings have to be given by Santa because they're out of a parents reach). So she's having fun with these new "tools", hasn't bitten me yet but is enjoying bumping her teeth together.
Ryan and I met on a blind date. Long story short, he chased and we married. (well I chased too then we broke up, this cycle over and over, a long long story). Now were living in Palmer Alaska, enjoying our home and our little Adelle who turns 1 the end of January. Because we love Adelle, we're giving her a little sister this May. While Ryan works on the slope I single Mom it, its great! Now were looking to start foster care and preparing physically emotionally and artilarylly. Fun things you'll be reading...keep posted and leave comments!!!
