Strange Dreams

Pregnancy sure comes with many strange symptoms, one of which is strange dreams. I had it last pregnancy as well. I wake up 7-31 times a night, and I think I may dream in between each stretch of sleep. Many dreams come from things waaaaay in my past, whereas some are just the regular dreams that we all have. The strangest things come out, like past friendships from childhood, or someplace I went in junior high. Things that I haven't thought about for years! I also get mad at Ricky a lot, and I wake up mad at him at least every other night. I have to talk myself down and realize that it was just a dream. I have had a few recurring and progressive dreams as well. One night I have a dream, and the next night I have the dream again, but it gets added to, and the then again the next night. It really starts to mess with your head. I have a nightmare just about every night as well, where Ricky, Judah, or I is in danger. Those are the worst.

Another strange thing to note is that I am rarely pregnant in my dreams. In almost all of them, I am my regular self. This seems odd to me seeing as how being preggers is a constant factor in my life. Most of what I do all day revolves around this fact. What I eat, how much I drink, when I can go out, when I nap, how I wear my seat belt, what I can lift, what I can clean, how I bend and move and walk... these, and more, all factor into being pregnant. Yet, I am not so in my dreams. I guess my body instinctively knows that the pregnancy is temporary, and therefore disregards all thoughts pertaining to it. On the up side, perhaps that means I won't remember most of the pregnancy (which is less than memorable).

All this is to say that my day has been foggy. It's past noon, and I have already been out and about, but I still have a few dreams hanging around my head, like I am still there. It's a half state of consciousness, and it's driving me crazy. I will go lie down for a nap, but will undoubtedly have another strange dream that I won't be able to shake off. All these strange dreams are melding together and now soaking into my daily life. It's so... strange.

Ugh! I am so impatient!

I want to move! I want to move tomorrow! I want to move today! Everyday we stay here is just a voice in the back of my head saying man, you could have it so much better... Well, of course you can always have it better, but when you have actually bought a house, and you just can't live there yet, it is soooooo aggravating.

I want to start setting up Judah's room and the kitchen. I want to put all his toys downstairs so he can play in a big open space. I want to buy a playset for the backyard so he can get fresh air and play football in the yard. I want to start decorating. I want a laundry room and a garage and start organizing storage! Not usually fun things, but things that I want!

I know, I know, it's not all about me, and it's not all about what I want. I know I have to be patient and a few weeks is not a huge sacrifice in the long run. The time is crawling when it usually flies. It's like waiting for a vacation. You know how your vacation seems to come so slowly, and then once it's finally here, the time flies so fast it feels like you didn't really have a vacation?


Come on February. Can't you help me out???

Fun For All Weekend

We sure had an eventful weekend. Friday night, we had some friends over for "bad movie night" (a night where we watch a really entertaining, hilarious, old, bad movie.) On the queue this week was an old 80's flick called "Real Genius" starring Val Kilmer. It was awful! And awesome! Needless to say, we had fun and sure needed a chill out night.

On Saturday, we took a morning trip to the Pacific Science Center with my Uncle Harvey, Aunt Liz, and their son Conner (slightly younger than Judah) to let the kids get some stimulation. It's a great place for kids, and Ricky and I know that we'll be making it a regular place to visit as the kids grow up. Day trips to the city are the bomb! There is an children's area where they can play in the water and climb on toys. Tide pools, moving dinosaurs, flushing toilets, and the old space capsule... anyone remember those??? Most of the stuff is still there from my childhood. It hasn't changed much except for a few new exhibits and the layout. We love it there so much, and we may revisit again in a month or two.

After church on Sunday, Kat and James took Judah to their house. We met up and played a board game until we had to head back to church. Sunday, of course, was the Superbowl. The Edge put on a Superbowl party at the Creekside. It was fun and very relaxed. I was back and forth managing the childcare, and Ricky put together some trivia questions so we could hand out prizes. It wasn't a huge party or anything, but there were lots of friends and fun.

So the weekend was full, and I was more than ready for some much needed rest. I tried to sleep in a little. *fail* And now I am catching up on cleaning and blogging while Judah watches Handy Manny on Playhouse Disney. Tonight, we are back to church for The Edge service. Although, I am playing that by ear because Judah seems to have caught a cold. I'll be keeping an eye on that. If he does have a cold, then it looks that I may be in for a full week too.

February. The longest month of the year.

Hello February! Even though you are the shortest month of the year, you are still not short enough.

The closing date for our condo and new home is February 26th and 27th. We have to wait until the very end of the month to move in. Ugh, it feels so far away. I want to be out of here so badly. Don't get me wrong, this has been a great place, but every day I wish I could let Judah play in the yard. I'm also pretty sure that he is allergic or reacting to something in our house and/or his bedroom. Poor kid wakes up every night, sometimes several times a night, coughing and coughing until he falls back asleep. He does it for naps every once in awhile as well. Ricky and I are both hoping it will clear up with a new house. There are so many things to look forward to. More room to play inside and outside, more light, not 2 blocks from a mall, and *fingers crossed* no coughing at night.

This will be so good for Judah, and I am so happy for him. He'll have an amazing place to grow up.

But February is such a long month. It seems like forever to get to the end. I wish that February was only 7 days long.


Here is the pregnancy update for this week. Week 23
