The Weekly B*tch

15 weeks today - things are pretty much the same with the never-ending nausea.  I've been feeling really sick over the last 5 days, so my nurse threw the weaning plan out the window.  (Thank G-D).  The big difference here is that I have finally moved back to our place.  It was tough leaving Mom & Dad's, but it's nice to sleep in my own bed and watch HGTV 24/7.

Lemme vent: I'm getting a little concerned with peeved at resentful of (all of those) conpeevsentful of JD and his lack of job/not doing much around the house.  He has now been sleeping for most of the day.  When he's not sleeping, he's playing around on the computer.  To give him credit, he has been fetching stuff/food for me the past few days.  I'm just not thrilled with having to put up with his whiny, I don't feel good BS.  Given the history of the past few years, I feel like JD is not allowed to be sick for the rest of our lives.  I'm willing to be reasonable (ha ha) though and state that he is not allowed to be sick for at least the next year and a half.

I was able to bring up the issue of cleaning out the 2nd bedroom (what will be the baby's room).  Right now, that room is absolutely stuffed with clutter.  We're not really at Hoarders' level, but it wouldn't be a challenge to get there.  My mother came up with the following idea: JD and I set a deadline for ourselves to clean out all the stuff.  Once we hit the deadline, Goodwill comes in and gets everything that's left.  As expected, JD the Hoarder wasn't too thrilled with the idea that his stuff might be given away, but that's the point of the whole idea.  You get rid of your own crap, or it will be gotten rid of for you.  We haven't come to an agreement yet, but I feel good that there's been an opening salvo.

Glad you're back in your own bed.

Hope JD can part with his stuff. I would hate to see you on Hoarders BEFORE the baby crap arrives! LOL

I hate to tell you this, but when you write: Lemme vent: I'm getting a little concerned with peeved at resentful of (all of those) conpeevsentful of JD and his lack of job/not doing much around the house.?

When the baby comes? It's going to be like this fora really,really,really long time. Ie,until you can get back on your feet to do stuff. I'm telling you now, just make paths through the clutter on the floor. Have snacks on hand after the birth AT ALL TIMES because you are going to be very hungry and you won't have time to cook.

Above all? Deep breaths. Many deep breaths. Many, many, many. Deep. Breaths.

I think the goodwill thing is a good idea...that way if you have some incentive to do it.

Isn't it wonderful to be in your own bed?!

I'm catching up on my blog reading! I'm so excited that you're 15 (ok maybe 16) weeks now! Although sorry to hear about the nausea. I hope that it lets up soon.

I like the deadline idea!

We had the same room, it was our spare room. You could hardly walk in there this summer, it was so bad. To our credit, we have a small house and no garage or basement. Still... my thing was that it needed to be painted so, I got rid of my stuff, Goodwill, dump, etc. and put ALL of his stuff in the dining room. Wanna know when his stuff got cleaned out of the dining room? It hasn't. It's down to one corner of the room now though.

But hey, the babies' room is all set!

So yea, I can commiserate.

Feel better. :)
