Beginning work and other exciting things....

So it is that time of the year again where I must go back to work as a teacher.  Don't get me wrong, I do love my job, but when you have had the first summer off in about 8 years with nothing to do but is really really hard to go back to work.  This was the first summer I did not have a job, going to summer school, or working on my Masters program.  For once it was just me being me and doing what I wanted.  SUPER NICE!  

So the year started with a bang and ended this first week with an exhausted preggo.  I miss my nap time so much, and boy do I need it.  There are days I will sneak a 30-45 minute nap into my conference time, but it is not often enough.  I have really good students this year and I'm excited how the first semester will go.  Especially since I'm pregnant and not getting smaller anytime soon.  I would say my worst fear right now is my water breaking in front of my class, but I just might not have to deal with that unless Connor decides to come a week early.  

Nick also started his fall semester classes this week and I think he might have a pretty good semester with some good professors for once.  I can tell he is excited, because once this semester is over, it is smooth sailing to graduation next December, or so we hope!  He only has to drive to Huntsville twice a week this semester unlike the past two where it has been everyday.  So yeah for saving gas, and yeah for Nick having more free time between his full time schedule of classes and full time work schedule.  I hope he knows how much I appreciate his dedication to everything he does and provides for this family.  

Other than that we had our 23 week checkup this past Monday and she said everything sounds and looks great.  Baby had the hiccups and would not stop moving when she was getting his heartbeat - which is 158 now.  My next appointment is in 4 weeks.  This next appointment will be a long morning.  I have to have an ultrasound at 8am to see if my placenta has moved into place (I'm excited to see the baby again) and then my regular appointment is at 9:00 and I have to do my glucose testing that day for diabetes and what not.  So it will be time to drink that not so wonderful orange drink in 5 minutes.  This is not small like taking a shot, but more like a water bottle - a little bit smaller, but downing it in 5 minutes does not seem exciting to me when it won't be tasting too yummy!  After my appointment in September I will be going to appointments every 2 weeks for awhile up until due date I guess.  

The upside for this weekend is labor day - one extra day off!  Nick is working all weekend and dove hunting on Monday, so I am spending the weekend relaxing and getting ready for my craft show that I will be in, in November.  I'm super excited I got a booth and hoping that I will do well.  

Well I guess this brings me to the end of my thoughts.  Hope everyone has a fantastic three day weekend!!!
