I haven’t been on tumblr on my laptop in so long it actually logged me out. I’ve also hit the point in my titles that I have a 7.21.13 post. I haven’t had much to blog about so I haven’t been in order to save everyone from boredom. That means I’ve mostly been lurking about on my phone and I’m terrible at being social so I appologize. If ever anyone wants to talk I’m more than happy to get to know you or respond to questions :)
I hit 13 weeks on Saturday, meaning I’m in my 13th week. Some people say this is the beginning of the second trimester, others say it doesn’t start until this week is over. I tend to go with the former on this opinion and I’m enjoying a cup of coffee this morning for the first time since I discovered I was pregnant. I don’t honestly think a cup of coffee a day is going to do anything even in the first trimester but I couldn’t stand the smell before I had zofran so I abstained (and had Erik drink his far far away from me).
The zofran is doing wonders for me and I can actually do more than sit on the couch now. This weekend we cleaned and rearranged the living room which took an entire afternoon. I made a pot roast that was huge and we still have leftovers of. Erik also found a spider in his pants that had just been sitting in his computer chair downstairs which prompted me to completely freak out and wash basically all our clothes again that hadn’t been folded and put away yet.
The other thing we did was finally start watching Game of Thrones. I had bought seasons 1-3 while he was gone on deployment but wanted to wait to watch them with him. Then I wanted to wait because the books were just SO good that I knew I’d be mad if the show was overly terrible at adapting. We watched all of season one and I’m happy to say that I don’t think that there were any glaring inconsistencies that I noticed that overly bothered me. The ages of the kids differ in the book but I can understand why they aged everyone up in that regard and can’t really complain too much about it. I do know that some stuff gets changed in later seasons *cough* red wedding *cough* but I think I can deal with it since the show is actually really great.
My treadmill comes in this week and I could not be more excited. When we move I will be setting us up a nice space for all our equipment. We basically have everything at this point for a home gym that I could want. I know Erik would like to have a bench and a higher range of weights so that’s still on the list, but otherwise we’re really set.
The other exciting thing is we finally figured out where we want to move when he’s done with the Navy. Everything has mostly been up in the air the past several years as to what we wanted to do, a lot of it was depending on this last duty station. If we had gotten California, in all honesty, we probably would have stayed on that coast and moved to Washington like we’ve talked about for three years or so. The choices on this side were a bit more varied, between Florida, Michigan, Texas, Tennessee, or just staying in Maryland. After really evaluating things we’ve picked Michigan and we’re both really excited. Its still over two years away but I’m really glad we have this time to prepare everything before the move. We’ll be buying our first house then, the house that our children will grow up in, and that idea makes me so so so excited for our future.
