Well, I don't have much to say on here, so I'll just talk about some random things in my life:

**Haven't bought anything for the baby yet. I just really hate spending money!

**We find out the baby's sex on June 9th.. so excited.

**We also drive down to California on June 9th.. should be nice to get a break from work, see my family, and start baby shopping.

**Graham is working for the census as an "enumerator".. i.e. taking people's names. Pretty exciting job, but hey.. it's money and flexible hours.

**I am tired of waking up 3 times in a night to pee!! Last night, I didn't even get up at all. I was THIRSTY this morning, so I probably was a little dehydrated.

**My belly is finally starting to "pop". People at work are finally asking if I'm pregnant.

**I hate Bally's gym. We canceled Graham's membership almost 2 years ago and sent them a check to cancel everything, so we thought everything we taken care of because they cashed our check. However, because the cancellation was not mailed as CERTIFIED MAIL, we just got a collection's bill for $140.. Awesome. I thought I'd read the fine print thoroughly, but apparently not!

**Maternity clothes.. don't want to buy them!

**I have totally been craving sea salt and vinegar kettle chips. Salty and delicious.

**Graham went into the doctor because of some severe heartburn.. and wound up having to get an abdominal ultrasound to rule out appendicitis, cholecystitis, etc, because he had elevated liver enzymes. Luckily, his ultrasound was normal after my nightmares of having Graham in the hospital for a surgery. Turns out, Graham has a fairly common bacteria, Helicobacter pylori, that causes gastric ulcers. He's now on 2 antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor. When asked what bacteria he had, Graham said "b pylon?... I mean b python?".. Oh Graham and your refusal to say real names.. So, it looks like we will max out our insurance out-of-pocket fees this year.. So maybe my hospital delivery will be covered 100%... hah. Not with our luck.

**I'm stressing about how we will pay for childcare, and that's still 6 months away. How do people do it??? Even if we still didn't have any credit card debt, we couldn't afford it on my salary. Dang student loans..

**It has seriously been crappy weather out here. I am literally still dressing as if it were fall/winter. I mean, I like that aspect, but a little sun here and there wouldn't kill me...

Anyways, I'll keep you all updated about our little baby T-rex.

YOU don't want to spend money? I never thought I'd see the day.

It's been terrible weather here too, but I've liked it. I love the wind and rain.

Also, if Graham's voice starts getting hoarse, watch out for LPR.

Find someone with kids at home that wants to make a little extra money. I think it'll be your best bet for something affordable.

The girl who purchased an entire set of amazingly soft bath towels from Dillards doesn't want to spend money? I must say I was shocked at that too. We still use them by the way and they are still in great condition, but they should be for what you paid for them. I agree find someone who has kids at home. I was willing to watch a kid for $75 dollars a week and I would have been awesome, so don't settle. Oh and Bill said this morning that you were having a boy. Congrats.
