People are so nice to me right now. I am wondering if they are this nice to all pregos or if it just me. Seems like everyone around me right now is so willing to help me out, lift me up, put up with my negativeness and short comings and generally take care of me. It is an amazing blessing in my life right now. I am grateful to all the amazing people in my life! (all of you)

A very Good day!

Now for some not complaining. Barbara watched my kids today and I got stuff done. The baby's room is ready for him. I need to get out the little clothes and see what I still need but his crib is set up and in place I am done painting and there are not more tools in his room. It looks really good. I also got the laundry done, all of it, and then went to the temple with my hubby. Tomorrow is my pamper myself day, which I have been looking forward to for a while, but thought I wasn't going to be able to enjoy because of all the stuff I had to do that wasn't done. But after today I feel much better, still always more to do, but I got some big things done which helps. So tomorrow I am going to get a facial, wax my eye brows, get my hair done, and then get a pedicure with glitter toes, never done that before. Then to top it all off go eat with some of my sisters and go to womens conference. All in all it is going to be a good weekend. I am feeling pretty good right now.

More complaing

I know you are all sick of hearing me complain right now, but well...... this is my blog so if you are too sick of it then stop reading now.

I am just so irritated with myself right now. I can't seem to do anything right. I forget everything and mess up everything I am doing. It is very annoying because then everything that already takes me a long time because my body is slow and tired takes me even longer because I have to re-do it, or fix the part I messed up. I should not be blogging right now given the mood I am in. Tomorrow Barbara is going to watch my kids for a bit and lets hope I can get a lot done then. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

You can call it nesting or whatever you want, but something crazy is happening here. I feel this unquenchable desire to get things done. You would think this was a good thing, helping me get things done, but no. I normally have this desire but now it is over board. I can't get all the things I want to do done, time wise and energy wise. It isn't possible so then it just leaves me annoyed, and stressed that thing are not getting done. I could really use a team of people, maybe 12 or so to come over and help me all day one day. I think if I didn't have my kids that day everything would get done, or at least the big/important things. Humm........ what are the chances of that happening? Not big. So what to do about it. If I only had a brain, I could plan out all the next few days, prioritize and get the big things done. Well, I am off to make a way too big to-do list and then see how many of those things my husband can do for me. I can do this, I have to, most of the things on the list really have to be done... so here goes......

When it rains it pours......... blessings!

Seems like everything keeps going wrong and getting messed up but at the same time I am being soo blessed and everything keeps working out. I don't know if that makes sense but it is happening. Like my garage door broke.... but then Christopher had a really good month and we were able to pay for it without it being a big deal at all. Also the car had been having problems, not starting, but someone has always helped me so I have been able to get it home, and it got fixed without costing a lot. I keep forgetting things but it always turns out okay. I am really blessed and I am so grateful for all the people helping me and all the amazing blessings I am receiving right now.

random thoughts

I don't like being flaky. I am not a flaky person but right now I am. I am in between two types of people, the ones who say they are going to do things but then end up not doing them for one reason or another and the ones who get by doing the least amount possible. I am not either of these types normally but right now I am and it is making me mad. I feel like right now I am not living up to what I should be in any area of my life. It makes me mad at myself and at the same time makes me feel bad about myself. And any one can say, oh well, your pregnant Halley so it's okay. but no it's not. I feel like I need to clean out the un-important things in my life, but they are all important. I always feel behind. I really need to learn to use those around me, my husband, and others, let them help me/ ask for their help. I also need to use my time wisely. I guess I will work on that.

Feeling tired, a little disappointed, but still have hope for tomorrow. We are doing a three day sale, today was the first day, but it didn't go well. There is a great market for our jewelry and in the right place it sells itself, we are just having a hard time finding that place. I know that when you start a business it takes a lot of learning to get things right, and really we are doing well for how long we have been doing it, but I still can't help but be disappointed when things don't turn out the way I had hoped. I love making the jewelry, I love wearing it, I love working on the business side of it ( I get excited when I do it), but I am not super good at sales. There I said it, I am not a sales person. But I know with time I will get it figured out.

Something to look forward to: In a few weeks, 1 and 1/2, Eva is going to Peru! She is going to get us a ton of new beads, sterling silver and gold, and everything with our awesome logo printed on it! I am excited to see it all and start making new pieces. We are going to start holding a monthly girls night in at my house and let everyone see our stuff. The first one will be after she gets back and we will have all out new beads and stuff. I am very excited about that! We are also going to be doing more parties at people's houses, so if you are reading this and want some free jewelry, let me know. :-) That is it for today.

Daniel's school

So I just had to post since it was so cute. On Tuesday when we dropped Daniel off at school I am not sure Elena knew what was going to happen. We got back in the car without him and she starts asking me, "where's my Daniel." So cute, she was worried she told me to wait for HER Daniel. He went to school last year but she must not remember how it goes. So then yesterday we go to drop him off and it begins, she wants to stay and play and cries because I make her leave. So I guess we will see how long it takes her to understand that every day we are going to do the same thing, take him in and then leave and come back later. I am going to try and do a few things with just her so she has something to look forward to when he is at school, but it is also my get things done time so we will see. Today we are going to go shopping, just her and me and get her some clothes, she loves shopping so that should be good. :-)
