See I went off on a tangent. My point is, even though I am not single I often feel like a single parent. I have to be both Mom and Dad most of the time. I am left on my own to get all of the kids to their doctor appointments, playdates and other activities. Right now it's summer so there is not much going on, but this is year round. I think the worst part is trying to comfort the kids when they are crying for their daddy. They want to know when he will be home and I can't give them a definite answer.

Well after I got those three issues straightened out guess what I did. I lost my card :( I really think I threw it away on accident. We went to Wal-Greens to pick up my medicine. When you go through the drive-thru and pay with a debit card they put it in an envelope like you get at the bank and staple it to your medicine. Apparently when I got home I pulled off the prescription information sheet and took the medicine out of the bag. Then I threw away the receipt, bag and of course my debit card.
Hopefully the problem is fixed. I called the bank and they deactivated my card. They told me I had another card activated that had never been used. Last time I had a fraud alert they were supposed to have cancelled all cards except the one I was currently using. Not sure why they had more than one card issued to me anyways. Now I'm just waiting for my new card to come in. Until then I'll just use Chet's ;)

"Couch Potatoes" as Adasyn called them. Chet (he decided he doesn't like being called Piggy) made these for the kids one evening. I didn't realize they were keeping them 'fresh' in my refrigerator! Not what I expected to see when I opened it the next morning LoL

Going to the dentist.
Playing with the train table (KK's favorite)
Overall we had a great time and I think it was a very successful outing as a family of 5 :)

We decided to brave the fair this weekend with 3 kids. The kids did awesome! The fair on the other hand was so-so. First they went up on parking, now it's $10!! They also went up on ticket prices (4 tickets for $5.00). Adi and KK had a blast. They rode the ponies, went to the petting zoo and watched the (free) circus. I use the term circus loosely. Camryn just slept the entire time!

Almost to the end! I thought last night was it though. I started having contractions at 6:30pm. They were pretty consistent but not very strong, just strong enough to catch me off guard. This went on until 1:30am. At that point I fell asleep. I know that babies will come on THEIR schedule, no one elses but I'm really hoping I make it to Adi's dance revue. Piggy says she would be more excited about having a baby sister. I don't think I could ever forgive myself if I missed it.
I had a doctor's appointment yesterday morning. The doctor said the baby is still REALLY high. He did an ultrasound to make sure the baby was head down. In his words, I'm pretty sure it is but I don't want any surprises. The baby IS head down. Its head is on my left hip bone and his behind is in my right ribs. Hopefully baby moves over just a little and 'falls' into my pelvis. I go back first thing Thursday morning to check and see if anything is happening.
Today is part 2 of dress rehearsal. I'm going to try and get the kids overnight bags packed and all of the daily chores done early this morning. That way, even if I don't go into labor in the next few days it will all be done.

This week is rather simple. Adi has her first dance revue Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday are dress rehearsals.
Thursday KK started with a nasty cough and stuffy nose, he has since infected the entire house. Adi got over it pretty quickly. He is still suffering. I woke up with it yesterday and it seems it got to Piggy yesterday evening.
Hopefully we will all be better before baby comes! I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. I will be 39 weeks Tuesday, hoping for SOME progress but not too much. Adi's first dance revue is Wednesday night. Anytime after that would be great! :)
I plan on trying to post our weekly menu tomorrow morning. It will be rather simple since we have dress rehearsals Monday and Tuesday night then the revue Wednesday night. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and to those of you who live near me, don't go crazy with the kids cooped up in the house!!! (I don't know about your yard but ours is SOAKED!)
