New House!

So we moved in this week on Tuesday. We were supposed to move in at 8am, but some unexpected events occurred and we couldn't move in until 6pm. What happened was the old managers' son broke his arm while they were moving and so that put a halt in things. It kinda sucked. We bought donuts and everything for the people that were going to help us move, but since we couldn't move until that night, Steve and I ended up eating almost all of them. Well, mostly me. I had like 4 or 5 donuts by the time Steve had had 2. I know. Horrible. But they were delicious. I am craving some cinnamon rolls right now. They sound so good. We or rather I, unpacked and put everything in some place on Wednesday. Just about everything anyways. I started my job a day early on Thursday and we have already had a white glove meeting on Friday and did some yard work on Saturday. Steve is having a hard time going to work now and then. He just wants to stay home and help me around the house. Or so he says. I am thinking he just wants to play some video games or something. I can't be sure though, there are a lot of things that need to be done. We need to paint the house, the nursery, clean the kitchen, tear down the wallpaper in the kitchen, replace it with something pretty looking, and do some handiwork around the house. I know, it's a lot to do. But I want the house looking perfect for our new arrival. The nursery and everything needs to be set up and painted soon. I would like it done before the baby comes so that it doesn't have to be done when he comes. I still need diapers. Tons of diapers. And wipes. So, if anyone feels the need, I wouldn't stop you from getting us those. Can you just put new wallpaper on top of old wallpaper? Or do you have to take down the old wallpaper before you put up the new? I will put up some pictures of my baby bump soon. I am just so busy all the time. I hope that my bump does get bigger so that people stop looking at me like I'm just fat instead of pregnant. Oh well. Have a great day and enjoy your summer while it lasts!

Why am I the only one that keeps updating this blog? The past 3 posts have been from me, and that's not very fun. So, Steve and I got the managing position! We are moving in a couple of weeks. Our move in date is August 25. I am so excited. We are selling our kitchen table and chairs, entertainment center, couch, office desk, and giving away our funky chair. So we are just trying to get rid of it all because we don't want to haul it with us and the fact that those things are going to be provided at our new house. We don't really want to store these things for however long we are going to be living there. We don't even know how long we are going to be living there so there is no use storing all of that stuff if we are going to live there for years. Ya know? Leah and I are thinking about cutting all of our hair off. It is exciting! My last day of work is on Wednesday the 19th of August. Eric and Kelcie are coming over this weekend and are going to spend the weekend with us! We are so very excited! I am eating constantly it seems like. I think I am constantly going to be eating and gaining weight for the next umm.... while. I will be 6 months pregnant or 25 weeks along on Sunday. YAY! I think I look like I have a soccer ball underneath my shirt all the time. And it is hard to sleep through the night now. And I go potty all the time. Well, life is pretty good here in Idaho. I love having Steve home at night now. It rocks! I love that we go to bed together now. The past couple nights, we have been in bed before 10pm. Exciting?! Well, we love you and will talk to you soon... hopefully.

Spring Cleaning?... in August

Okay so this week I had off from work so I had the "bright" idea to clean my house while I am home this week. I mean like really clean it. Deep down, cleaning mopboards, scrubbing tubs, that kind of clean that you always dread when you're a kid and it starts to come around to the spring time of year that most houses refer to as the dreaded Spring Cleaning. Well, I hate it now as much as I did then, but the difference is that it is my house now and it is only going to get done if I do it. How is that fair? I hate the deep down cleaning part, but then once it's all done, it looks great, if you can keep it up. I mean there is no use to cleaning your house if you're just going to let it get all dirty again. I have that problem sometimes. I clean the house on Saturday and then get lazy and don't keep it up during the week to just come around and have to work hard to clean it all over again on Saturday. So, so far I have done the bathroom, office(kinda), and the bedroom. The office is only kinda done, because that is Steve's domain and I don't want to put stuff somewhere that I won't remember that he needs. So I figure he can help(a lot) with that one. I did the baby stuff in there. That should count for something shouldn't it? We have a lot of baby stuff that I don't know where to put. And that most likely won't change when the baby comes. But I am taking a break right now. I cleaned the walls, mop-boards, closet, door, all switches/plug-ins of any kind in that room, dresser, window sill, and whatever else you can think of in the bedroom today and I am doing laundry at the same time. I found some sheets on the floor in our bedroom and don't know if they are clean or dirty, so I am washing them. All the laundry is, hopefully, getting done today. I am walking around in pajamas so that my clothes can get washed. It is sad, I have to keep putting my clothes that don't or won't fit me anymore while I am pregnant in a bag in the closet and my clothes keep thinning out. Ignore the punn... I thought it was funny. I might have to resort to my old ways pretty soon and become the baggy jeans, t-shirt girl. I will have to do my hair so that I don't completely become my old Junior High School self again. Oh good times...
Last night, Steve and I decided to go to bed a little early. I wanted to play with the baby. So I laid down on my back in bed and got a flashlight. For those of you who haven't done this, I reccomend doing it. It is soooo much fun. We shined the flashlight right on my belly and moved it around a little bit. I think Caleb was a little shocked by this because he didn't know what to do. Then we put some music on, he really likes to dance to fast music. Anyways we put the music on and Steve was in charge of the flashlight, he has in one hand and the other he has on my belly trying to feel him move around. Steve just starts talking to Caleb telling him what to do and singing along with the music. And then Caleb does exactly what Steve tells him to do. And he starts dancing and kicking and just having a ball with the light and the music. Steve and I had so much fun doing that last night. It was great! We will have to do it again sometime so that we can get more and more aquainted with our little guy. Oh yea, so we really like the name Caleb and are pretty sure that is what we will name him. FUN!!! I will be 6 months pregnant in a week from Sunday! YEA! That means the 3rd trimester here we come! The ladies at work are throwing me a baby shower on August 31. I am very excited! Well have a great week guys and have fun during the school break!
Sara and Steve

Poor Car...

So they say that bad things happen in threes so maybe we will be okay maybe with our next car... so to update you guys, on Friday the 31st of July I was in a car accident. My first one ever. What happened was, I was on my way home from work at the dentist's office in Idaho Falls and on the highway when this car to the right and just ahead of me started pulling into my lane. I was at his back tires so most likely in his blind spot. He forced me off the road into the median, I was coming back onto the highway and must have hit the gravel wrong and started going out of control. I spun and hit a car that was merging onto the highway. My car, or rather John's car looks like when you cook lasagna and have to bend the foil on top before you put it into the oven. The hood looks like that and the bumper is broken. Kinda looks like a smooshed something from the front end. The car doors still open just fine, but I don't want to drive the car on account that it's hard to see the road and when you turn right, the left hand tire scrapes against the body of the car. The other car basically what happened is the bumper fell off. Lucky them. So John's car is done for now. We have to take it to the shop and get it fixed. The insurance company is coming out tomorrow to assess the car and see what we can do about it.
About a rental. John's coverage doesn't cover a rental so we can only get a rental car if the guy who forced me off the road insurance claims liability and says that it was his fault. So if so, then they owe us a rental while ours is undriveable and in the shop. He got a citation for unsafe lane change so hopefully they will say that it is his fault and they won't fight it. That is what we are hoping for.
Steve and I are doing okay right now. My lower back is absolutely killing me and has been all day long. We have tried everything, from different positions to a bean sock(like a rice sock) and massages, and medicine, and stretching. I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions? I hate how much it hurts. I guess that this is part of being pregnant. This must be the sucky part and the uncomfortable part that everyone keeps telling me to get ready for. Well, if something were to happen I guess this week is the best for it to happen because I have this week off from work and Steve's last day at Wal-Mart is on Monday!!! I am so excited!!! I will have a sleeping buddy again! I won't be alone at night! My hubby and I can eat together again! It's like going from single life to married life then back to single and now we are back to the married part! YEA!!!
Steve felt our little Caleb move a couple of times now. That is the name we are pretty set on for our little man, but we aren't positive yet. He was so excited the first time that he felt him move. And each time he is but it's always coolest the first time. Well, I guess I will talk to you all later and see you next year! LOVE YA!
