Spring Break

We went to the Butterfly Gardens yesterday and I had a field day with my new camera. It takes such crisp up close pictures that I couldn't resist taking a bunch of pics. The kids really enjoyed seeing all of the different colors and shapes.

This week has been very low key and has gone entirely too fast. I wish we had a few more days to relax but the sooner we go back to school, the sooner it's over. I am SO ready for summer!

Family Pic

This weekend was the couple's shower for my brothers upcoming wedding. The theme was "love", hence the red blazer with heart buttons that he got for $2 at the thrift store! It has been a long time since my brother and sister and I have had our picture taken together and I thought this one turned out nice. Notice the "bride" hat that he's wearing. They decided that the white hat matched his outfit better and the black went better with hers. Go figure. It was fun!

She's here!!

Aunt Flo finally made her appearance and I feel soooo much better. I still want to go to the doctor this week and get some blood work done to see why I've been feeling like crap and just rule out any problems.

This weekend we went to the couple's shower for my brother and his fiance. It was really nice but because I wasn't feeling great, I just kept thinking how badly I wanted to go home. Normally, I love being at things like that but not this time. I would have been happy sitting on the sofa with a glass of water and a blanket.

H has been totally aggravated with me being so moody. I understand that I've had PMS for 3 weeks but I've been trying to explain that it's not my fault. I've been trying so hard to be nice to him so he's not being treated like crap all of the time. I feel pretty bad about it.

This week could go pretty quick....I have 3 days of field trips and then oldest son's birthday on Friday. I'm so excited about Spring Break!

This is soooo TMI but no one reads my blog anyway so I don't have anything to lose. Here goes....
I went to the OB/GYN back in October because I was bleeding after having sex. Pretty much every time. Got really annoying. Anyways, I had an ultrasound, pap and exam and she said everything is OK. It's still happening on a regular basis (when we actually have time to "do it"!) . My periods are getting progressively worse. Terrible cramps, horrible PMS and lasting for about a week. The good thing is that I'm always on schedule...until this month. I'm 8 days late and have absolutely no symptoms of starting. I'm feeling very run down and would love a day just to sit and veg but I don't see that happening any time soon. I took a preg. test and it came out negative which I fully expected and hoped, so I can cross that off my list of possible reasons to be late. I need to go to the doctor and see what's going on but it's such a pain to try to get an appointment during the work day. I just hate going in and her making me feel like I'm crazy. Anyway, it's just been bugging me. Hopefully, I'll get it straightened out soon.
