What horses?

This particular incident has happened more than once and every time it reminds me how simply kids think.

The first incident was the funniest:

I was getting the camper packed up and ready to go; we had a long trip ahead of us and, as usual, the boys were following me around like lost puppies *anxiously* awaiting departure time.

We still had several hours to go until we left and I had a lot to pack. Justin was nipping at my heels constantly asking when we were leaving.

Finally, I said it:

"Sheesh Justin, I'm packing up the camper now. HOLD YOUR HORSES!"

To which he replied:

"But mommy, we don't have any horses."

Yep...gotta love it!

Oh baby, baby :)

First of all, I have to say that my husband ROCKS :) He took the hour that I was at my doctor's appointment and steam-cleaned our couches! Plus, he mopped the kitchen floor and did the dishes. YAY hubby :)

Okay, baby update!

I'm 32 weeks along TODAY. Baby girl is good, she is head down, and her heart rate is around the 140 mark. The doctor said it's unusual that she's all on my right side, she won't even budge when he tries to move her lol.

I'm doing well too. My blood pressure, according to the doctor and nurse, has been 'weird' lately but they didn't say anything negative. I know at my last appointment it was unusually low, and the nurse said my heart rate dropped from 160 to 70 in a matter of minutes when she was taking my BP, so who knows what's going on.

I've been cleared of any gestational diabetes because my numbers from a week of testing looked good, and we have a *tentative* c-section date of September 25th!

So, I've been experimenting with cleaning for awhile now, mainly out of my frustration that I blow through cleaners like nothing in this house!

I'm starting to get really paranoid about the chemicals in all the cleaners that I've been using, so I sought some natural cleaning recipes...apparently most people swear that vinegar is God's miracle cleaner gift to mankind :)

Thus far, I'm unimpressed, but I'm not exactly a scientist when it comes to mixing cleaners and getting ratios correct and whatnot, so we'll see what happens. I currently have a vinegar mix in my Clorox ReadiMop and I just cleaned my living room rug with vinegar and water with my steam cleaner...we'll see what happens!

Too bad I loathe the smell of vinegar! Time to light some candles!
