*Might Have* Monday

I might have taken my kids out to Chinese food for lunch yesterday after church knowing that they'd get extra sleepy, hoping that they would take a nap all the way home so I could enjoy my coffee (and my music!) on the way home in peace...

I might have realized this weekend that Christmas is only two weeks away (did you know that, you guys? TWO WEEKS AWAY) and I'm no where near ready. All the presents we've purchased are still piled in the back of the closet where we've been tossing them as we've brought them home. I really have no recollection of what's in there, much less what we might still need to get. (But for the love of Dave Ramsey, don't tell anyone how bad I was this year with making things such as Christmas lists... and a budget. Ahem.)

I might have a pile of laundry that's bigger than my car (and it's a big car) waiting to be washed, but since I was up all night coughing and my throat and chest hurt pretty bad today, I'm choosing not to care. And I might have set up the DVD player so Jack could watch his favorite DVDs over and over again while I attempt to make up for some of the sleep I lost last night.
And last but not least:

I might have felt the baby move. You know, the baby that's residing inside me? Yeah, I can feel it in there. I forgot how amazing that is. So right now I don't really care that we're unprepared for Christmas, or that I could get a full-on workout just by climbing my mountain of laundry because the little person that I've been having a hard time grasping the concept of  kicks me. And I like it. A lot.


  1. This brought a tear to my eye! Seriously! Do you care that I live vicariously through you, with this pregnancy? There is SO much I miss about having a baby and this will be perfect. I can pretend with you but not have to have the sleepless nights!

    And....don't get me started on the xmas budget thing. Sigh...

    And you guys "do" Dave Ramsey? We have many friends that do and swear by it. May have to look in to it.

  2. I don't mind one bit that you live vicariously through me - it makes me more excited about the whole thing (well, minus the sleepless nights you so lovingly reminded me of)! :)

    And we have all the stuff to "do" Dave Ramsey's plan (read the books, have the budget on the computer, etc.) - we've started before and then had major stuff happen that set us back and we just need to get back into it. You know, we'll start on Monday (err, in January) probably. The whole "baby" thing has thrown us for a loop, especially when we got our projected bill (patient responsibility after insurance - OUCH!) last appointment. Yikes. So, we're trying to save for that and then get back to attacking debt. Fun stuff (sense the sarcasm).

  3. Heyyy you're going to have to change your blog title! Congrats, family of six... :)

    I've been wanting to tackle a Dave Ramsey-esqe debt plan thing... but buying that book would be a really lame Christmas present to myself.
