Monkey has finally realized that his poor Mama is tone deaf. So whenever I start to sing lately, he YELLS at me. You know, that weird grunting thing? “UHH UHH UHH!!” with some “AAHHHH!” thrown in. Well at first I just thought he didn’t want anyone to sing for him. Call it desperation if you will, but I hoped it wasn’t me. Then when I started to realize that he will let ANYONE else, and I do mean ANYONE else sing for him, I had to accept the facts. This isn’t to say that I don’t continue to try. But he grunts and yells through it all and then when I am done he lets out a loud “Yayyyyyyy!!!” and his eyes say “thank you for finally shutting the hell up mother!”
It’s not a great thing. Cause even though I can’t carry a tune to save my life… I LOVE to sing. So I just need to decide if I can either give it up or tune out his screams of protest while doing so. *evil grin*
Every night when I go to bed I pray that when I wake up the housecleaning fairies will have come and cleaned my house. But alas… *sigh*… still no fairies. Well I can’t be sure about the fairies actually. I did notice that there is a bottle of wine missing. And I found a few wine glasses with glitter on them. So maybe they are on strike. Maybe they just flutter in to drink my liquor and then pass out on my couch. *shrug*
It is POURING rain here. Again. On the bright side, I think we can finally build a dock off our back porch. Hubby is going to be thrilled when he comes home and realizes that our backyard is now a lake and he can finally get that boat he has been wanting.
However, let me just tell you… trying to get a Jack Russell and a Toy Pug to go wading out into the lake to take their morning tinkle break… not so fun. Add to that their prissy, holy-er than thou attitudes and it turns into a real circus.
Picture this. Me picking each of them up, one at a time, and running out to the grass to throw (yes THROW) them into it while screaming “ it’s ok, go potty go potty, please go potty and mama give you a treat, go potty!!!” Since of course I have to repeat this process until they finally realize I won’t stop until they pee, you can imagine I am drenched before this is all through.
Then comes the ÜBER FUN task of trying to dry them. Jazz, the pug, seems to think that trying to attack the towel AND the arms that hold the towel is the best way to accomplish this task.
I have to start chanting to myself Cass, be the pack leader, be the pack leader!! Guess who successful I am at *that*??
That is a less than successful endeavor, so I just have to deal with wet carpet and couches all day. And hey, on the bright side, who doesn’t love a nice wet dog air freshener??? 🙂
So I can’t lie. I am sitting here trying to type my random thoughts but the only thing going through my mind is the pending ultrasound. My appointment is in less than an hour to see if this pregnancy is still working out. The numbers show that it is but we haven’t seen a heartbeat yet. I am sooooo nervous. I have a bad feeling in my gut. I am just trying not to throw up. Wish me luck!!!
I will try and post an update later today.
The ultrasound went well today. After the doctor searched high and low ForEVER, he finally found the little gestational sac. There is only one sac. So I won’t be getting my own TV show! For those of you who have made comments about that. LOL
I am measuring about 5 weeks now. We thought we were about a week and a half further along. But you never know. All my numbers and measurements are consistent with 5 weeks. God works in mysterious ways. But I am feeling much better about things today. So happy that it is not a tubal pregnancy!
We will have another ultrasound Monday morning to see if we can get a heartbeat.
Thank you for your prayers!!
