Happy Birthday Audrey!

Audrey is so happy to be 5! She says she's grown and is brave now. She got a new dresser, a new outfit, 5 bills (four $1 and 1 $2) from Grandma Judy, and will get gymnastic lessons in August. She chose a butterfly cupcake cake for her birthday, easy for me! We also had a lot of fun at Boondock's.

Third Trimester

So this pregnancy thing has caught up to me. I am not uncomfortable yet, in that I don't feel like I'm going to pop, but I am exhausted! I feel like resting most of the day and my brain works so slowly. The doctor says I am anemic and I have low blood pressure, which is probably why I feel so drained. I feel like a bad mom, housekeeper and wife, I'm pretty useless dragging around the house all day. I sure hope I get more energy when the baby is born, but then I will be up all night, so there's no light at the end of the tunnel yet.

A couple of weeks ago I had the worst pelvic pain. I felt like I was being stabbed every time I took a step. I got a couple of adjustments from my dad and I now sleep with a pillow between my knees. It is so much better. If it does hurt, it just feels a little bruised.

That's not too bad if those are my only complaints about pregnancy. I am really lucky to have no major problems. 8 more weeks until we meet this precious one.

R.I.P. Goldie

Back in January of 2007, I bought Audrey two fish. It didn't take too long before one of them died and we kind of expected the next to follow since we only paid 26 cents for them. But here it is 3 1/2 years later and we are finally saying good-bye. I'm sorry to say it is probably my fault.

Back in December my mom cleaned the fish tank for me after about a year of algae growth. Audrey was so surprised to see Goldie (who was once named Jack) so big. She had no idea she had a big fish and Nathan was happy to actually see the fish for the first time in his memory. So here it is 6 months later and we couldn't see the fish through the algae again. I thought it would be nice to get a tank that cleaned it's self, so I bought a mermaid tank and a sucker fish. The wimpy little filter didn't seem to work. The sucker fish died in less than two weeks and I returned the cheap tank that got cloudy faster than the first. I really hoped that even though Goldie was looking a little sad, that a new tank would make all the difference. Goldie died while we were at the pet store buying a new tank with a bigger filter.

We will miss you Goldie. What a tough fish.
