From what I gathered, most everyone likes Samantha Sue or Samantha Louise. Yes, Louise is an old lady name, because that's my 85 year old grandmother's name :) Even though I don't particularly like it, she has been like a second mother to me in raising me, and no one has been named after her. I did do some asking yesterday and found out her mom's name was Myrtle May and my grandpa's mother was Elizabeth. So I could do May or Elizabeth in the middle.
Still not for sure :)
Well, I think we're moving next weekend. We're supposed to close on Wednesday and my husband, mom and sister are going to help Thursday and Friday. Well of course dh will help everyday, but I meant he was taking special time off. So that gives me a week to get the packing done. I'm still having a hard time balancing basic daily care of home and family with packing. Oh well.
For those interested yes I'm in a lot of pain right now :) I have a new stretch mark- amazing since my belly is covered in the stripes from the first one. I've been trying to make myself look a little better with some self tanning lotion, but no matter what I do it gets streaked all over. I'll keep trying...meanwhile, it's awfully hot and I can hardly get around because of the pain in my legs/groin area. TMI sorry...but it's really bad. I suppose it's because I'm carrying the baby so low. Maybe later I'll take a picture of myself.
However, I feel a renewed sense of purpose now. I have hope to be in our new place next week and can make myself work on things more easily. Today I am going to work on my kitchen cabinets and my sewing area. I also need to CLEAN the fridge majorly, work on the usual laundry, and vacuum my terrible living room floor. Right now I'm resting my sore body, then I'll take some pain medicine before moving on.
One last thing, the other day I got such an insanely strong craving for cherry or berry something. I was getting to the point of not being able to focus, yet I didn't want to load all the kids up and head to town just to buy some cherries. I called my cousin who works in town and begged her to get some cherries. So strange because I'm not typically a cherry person. That's the first time I've gotten a craving that strong this pregnancy. Now I'm in a baking mood- I want to make loads of blueberry and/or cherry baked goods. Odd. I hope I have time to make some food and freeze it before the baby arrives. If I do, there will be lots of blueberry/cherry muffins and quick breads I guess, lol.
