Weird Happening...Funny(?) Story

OK, so today Matt, Carlee and I went to an early morning doc appointment for me (I am not even dilated yet, cum on already!)and then headed to Hoboken University Hospital to check out the facilities where Danilyn will be born. We had previously set up an appointment but ended up missing it a while back so we thought we would just stop in and check it out really quick like we did at Christ Hospital. We were in the lobby and were told to call this number. Well, when we did, we kinda got the run around on the phone with the Labor and Delivery. They were confusing and said someone was possibly going to come down and talk to us. After a few minutes this lady comes down and asks if we are the couple wanting to go up and see the labor and delivery. After we confirm, she explains that usually you have to have an appointment. She proceeded to tell us that this morning it was extremely busy with TWELVE ladies delivering and nurses running around like crazy so it would not be a good time to go up. She asked if we wanted to reschedule. In the mean time, the lobby gets a call and it is a nurse from labor and delivery. The lady speaking to us takes the call and we hear her kinda confused like say, "OK, I'll escort them up." Apparently there was a free nurse after all that could show us around. So, we get dropped off up there and this really awesome nurse starts showing us around. One of the first things she says is: "This morning is particularly dead. In fact, we only have ONE patient right now." Wait a minute...

I am so sick of being pregnant. Look, I know I shouldn't complain but that is all I want to do. I am really just feeling so overwhelmingly done with this pregnancy. It feels like I have been pregnant for sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long. I just want to be myself again and have motivation and energy...and my brain back. I am going to go crazy if I can't go out and like just run around, jump up and down, do a cartwheel, or something, anything with my body besides feel huge, ugly, hot, grumpy, lethargic, sluggish and sickish all the freakin time. I just needed to go off about this to someone, get it out of my system and move on. Ug.

I want to drive one of these some day

A Mouse in the Doll House

Finally I am posting! Sorry the blog hasn't been updated for so freakin' long. There is always so many things to be done so blogging gets put on the back burner. We have lots to share though...before Danilyn comes!

So you are wondering about the title? Well, we have been in Oregon for the past 2 1/2 weeks for Matt's one break from school besides Christmas. Between staying at his parents family home in West Linn, Oregon and then at a huge six bedroom house in Sunriver, Oregon for a Nielsen family reunion, by the time we got home our apartment felt like a doll house, too small to actually live in guessed it; we found mouse droppings scattered about. Dang!

Here are some lovely pictures taken by Matt from our trip. Matt has an amazing family and Oregon is a beautiful place.

Carlee absolutely loved riding the lawn mower with Grandpa

and mom shouldn't have been riding a bike

I absolutely love these next four pictures of Carleebug

She liked this one but looked like she was going to throw up as it spun around
