It's amazing how much stuff people can collect in one house. I have been cleaning and packing for days now, and it still seems like it's never going to end. I can't tell you the amount of stuff I have thrown away, donated or sold. It's insane!!! I am now t.v. less in the living room. It's so quiet in here. But it's actually kind of nice. I hate that we worship the t.v., b/c that is kind of how I feel. It's always on, and it's the focal point of the room. Well no more, I am down sizing. I sold the t.v. the couch, dining table, and my bed. I don't have much need for a king size bed now. I am getting me a queen size, and a smaller couch.

Okay, so I just have to say this...people are so disgusting sometimes. Today I ate lunch at zookini's...one of my fav places. I always order the same thing. (the zoo trip) Well I'm standing in line behind this adolescent (I feel really old for saying that) at the potato bar. She is taking her sweet time to dress her potato, and she knows I'm standing there too. She reaches down and dips her finger in the sour cream and licks it off. And then proceeds to sample the cheese and bacon bits, with her bare hands. That is so disgusting!!! Did anyone teach this child manners, and anything about public health? I was just staring at her, and I thought about saying something, but the only thing that would have come out of my mouth probably wouldn't have been very nice, so I just stared at her. I just don't understand people sometimes, and I would hope this was because of her age, but still she should have been old enough to know you don't do that.

Anyways, well I had my doctors appointment on thursday. I still haven't gained any weight. I am down 18 pounds since I got pregnant...I'm not worried and neither is my doctor. She said at least I'm not losing anymore, and I eat a lot. The baby is where is supposed to be according to my sonogram, so I press on! The good news is that I haven't thrown up a meal in about a month now. And my morning sickness is tapering off for the most part. Unless it's really early in the morning, or I see or smell something disgusting, and then I'm done for! I can't believe I am half way there! I have been feeling really good. So I'm definately thankful for that!

Tomorrow Madi and I are finally going to see Charlotte's Web together. We intended to back in December when it first came out, but then life got crazy and we didn't get around to it. So we have a date tomorrow afternoon. The kids are doing really well. We went to some friends house tonight for dinner, and they behaved so well. Considering everything that has been going on, I am just so proud of them. I know that they are and will be affected in lots of different ways, but so far this change has been very positive for them. I know that sounds odd, because that just doesn't sound right. But you would really have to know the entire situation to understand. I am very blessed to have such wonderful children, who bring such joy to my life!

It is insane how much "stuff" we have. When I was making room for Elise, we got rid of so much stuff it was kind of embarrassing! But much needed!I can't wait to see your new house!

The girl at lunch would have made me sick! She actually licked her finger? That makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it!

I am glad your are getting over your sickness and that Mason is healthy! I can't believe you are half way there!

This is the longest comment I have ever left, so I am going to stop now. See you in the morning!

The only thing I want to know is did you put sour cream on your potato?

EWWW about the girl at Zookini's. Did you tell an employee that they might need to change out the sour cream? Yeesh.

I'm glad your pregnancy is going well and that Mason is healthy ;) I know how you feel about being halfway there...I'm almost 15 weeks and really can't believe it. It seems like I just found out. However, July still does seem like a really long way off!
