Joseph's Super Fun Birthday Week-Part 1

 I love birthdays!! They are very important to me and I think every one should be special. I also think it should be celebrated for an entire week. Last year Joseph had RSV and he was only turning one, therefore doing fun stuff was pretty limited. This year is quite different....and the weather has been fantastic. We started off on Monday at the Louisville Zoo. I had never been, but it turned out to be a pretty nice zoo. We were there for 3 hours and didn't even see everything. Here's some pics from that trip:

 Tuesday, we had a MOPS meeting and then stopped at the park on the way home.
 Once we got home, I let him get his new fire truck and play outside for a while.

After his nap yesterday, we went to Petco to see the fish...Joseph loves the fish. I even got a betta to bring home. Joseph named him Dory. I did get him all set up until after Joseph went to bed and I was so excited to see his face this morning when he saw a fish in the bowl, but poor Dory was dead. So, we will get another one and try again this afternoon. I've got the water warming up now. I've never had a betta die that quick. 

Today, Spice had a farrier appointment so we started our morning off at the barn. Joseph liked picking the dandelions.

 Spice enjoyed getting to go out to pasture after her pedicure.

After a change of clothes, we headed to the Salato Wildlife Center.

After checking out the wildlife, we headed to Sonic for a slush and then home for lunch. It's been a good week so far!

Angry Pregnant Woman

Snow Day

I haven't blogged in a month. 

I haven't wanted to blog in a month.

I don't really want to blog now.

However, I feel I owe my reader(s) an explanation. 

You see, I am not one of those glowing, happy pregnant women who bask in the idea of growing a new being in their belly. I wish I was...I want to be one of those people.

Instead, I am a moody, VERY easily irritated, bloated-feeling, uncomfortable, blah, angry pregnant woman. I was the same with Joseph. And in much the same was as my first pregnancy, there are certain people/things that I was perfectly happy with before and now can't stand. This blog has become one of those things. I think it's because it has started to feel like an obligation. I'm obligated to give my followers something to read. The last thing I need in another obligation. I started this blog because it was fun and I wanted to write. I really didn't care if anyone read it. It's not fun for me right now. I'm not ending the blog by any means, because I know this feeling is temporary. However, don't look for a lot of posting over the next 5 months. I will try to put some up here and there, but only when I feel like it. 

We do have a pretty exciting Spring ahead of us. On April 3rd, we find out the sex of the baby. The very next day we board a plane to Billings, MT. Wow...I know, right?! Michael is being sent up there for work for pretty much the whole month of April and J and I are going up for a week. I'm pretty excited. I've always wanted to go to Montana. Then in May, we are going to Myrtle Beach, SC. I've never seen the ocean before! Crazy, I know. I've traveled all over, but never to the coast. Very cool stuff.

Anyway, now you know what's going on with me. I hope you are having a wonderful March.
