Partial Bed Rest, Half.com sales

April 27th, 2007 at 10:59 am

Good news first: Just posted a whole slew of books on half.com (cleaned out outside storage) and three sold today.

Bad news (although not terrible): at doctor's appointment yesterday my BP was up a bit. It's usually low and not high enough to classify as Pregnancy Induced Hypertension, but my MD put me on partial bed rest, so I'll only be working three days per week now....EEEKS! Thank God for the baby fund...Hopefully my BP will go down a little by the next appointment. I guess it's a chance to finish all those books I have around the house half read. Thankfully, my boss was very nice about it...13 more weeks to go....

Dollar Store Birthday Present

April 23rd, 2007 at 10:13 am

Darling niece was turning 3 this weekend, we got the invitation weeks ago, but apparently my child to be is sucking out all of my brain cells, because this information never made it from the cute Strawberry Shortcake invitation to the calendar. So Friday night DH and I headed out to the 99 cents only store to get her a gift.

Thankfully her main hobbies are applying lip gloss and Disney Princesses. 2 packs of different lip glosses, shaped like ice cream cones into the basket, Disney Princessess matching game into the cart, Disney princesses stamps into the cart, 2 kinds of Strawberry Shortcake lotion into the cart. Had a gift bag and card at home already. $6.00 later a decent gift! Yeah! Darling niece was thrilled and spent the remainder of her little party applying the lip gloss...

updated baby spending 4/9/07

April 9th, 2007 at 10:05 am

New total: 797.02
Old Total: 633.02

spent 2.00 at the dollar store on a tube of Desitin and a nasal aspirator

had to pay 162.00 to birth defects screening program for the state....glad to know no problems but here is my rant. Starting at age 30 the state of CA requires pregnant woment to get these tests...here's the icky loophole, insurance doesn't start paying for these tests until age 35...stupid!

First baby gift: from SIL very cute lion romper, bib, shoe and socks

It's going to be a .......

BOY, had the second ultrasound yesterday and everything looks great! DH and I are thrilled. He's moving around like crazy these days. Everyone told me they thought I was carrying a girl, thankfully most of the clothes I been given have been for a boy!

Why I love my mini-EF

April 3rd, 2007 at 10:40 am

DH and I keep a mini EF in a savings account at a local bank. This last weekend my cousin left a message that a great aunt had died (she had been sick for a long time). I sent flowers to my aunt who had cared for her for the last 12 years, but then heard through the grapevine that they were $300.00 short of being able to purchase the headstone, so mini-EF to the rescue (was refunded with Monday's paycheck). I just felt so good to just be able to send the money---most people in my family live check to check and put everything on the credit card. This is what having your finances in order is really about, freedom to do the important things!
