Digging out the holiday decor and waiting for snow!

Digging out the holiday decor and waiting for snow!

We are not venturing from the house this weekend (except to possibly get a x-mas tree). Weekends are crazy traffic wise here and well, we don’t want to deal with crazy consumers and retailers. Instead we are taking care of some errands around the house and are phasing in our boxes of holiday decor as we move the fall decor out.

I am back in bed right now. I got as far as putting some laundry away and straightening a pile of crap in the bedroom then my heart started racing and I felt dizzy so I had to scale it back and rest for a bit…

I still have loads of laundry to do, I need to iron N’s work shirts and vacuum the house but I just feel like I can’t stay productive for as along as I need to. It especially sucks when I get bursts of energy and want to get stuff done but my body isn’t on the same page as my brain.

I really hope I am not having blood sugar issues or blood pressure issues because that will blow my shot at having a low risk birth and I’ll be forced to deliver in a hospital. Something is definitely going on though with my heart racing all the time though. We’ll talk to the doc about in in two weeks at my next prenatal appointment.

Oh and we actually have a shot at some minimal snow accumulation today as a cold front passes through. How exciting for us, we love to be home enjoying the falling snow. Keep your fingers crossed that we’ll actually get some snow here already.

Hopefully the snow doesn’t result in our basement flooding again but if it does we have a certified letter out to the landlord about it and we are ordering a mold analysis for our own information.

So what is on the schedule for your weekend? Hopefully you stay warm and don’t have to deal with crazy shoppers.

  • I’m 3/4 done decorating for Christmas. It’s taking me much longer than I’d hoped. AND we woke up to 4″ of snow this morning.

    Have fun decorating for the holidays in your new house. Will you take pics and show us???

  • Our snow is all gone and the ground is almost all dried out – yea!! I will be doing my Christmas decorating probably next weekend. We, also, have 2 birthdays to get ready for in Dec.

  • Hopefully the blood pressure and dizziness is not an indication of anything serious at this point but it is good that you will ask the doctor. Better safe than sorry. We got our first snow of the season today. It was pretty but didn’t stick so that is good but now it is freezing rain. Yuck. I guess I’m going to need to find our shovels and ice scrapers for the season!

  • We haven’t decorated for Christmas since the last child got married. We’re almost always elsewhere for the holidays and it doesn’t seem worthwhile. That’s rather selfish I suppose, as I do enjoy the decorations others put up.

    I hope the dizziness and racing heart are just indications that your body is doing some more adjusting to its role of hostess to Tater Tot.
