I love my treatments!

In fact, today I'm going for my chiropractic appointment and a massage afterwards! Next week I might go for a pedicure.

I've been trying to pamper myself a little bit each week because I know that after the baby comes there's going to be no time for that.

Plus, it makes the time left being pregnant go by pretty fast if I have something to look forward to.

One treatment I should look into after having this baby is acne treatments! My face is so splotchy these days and it seems like I get a pimple and it stays on my face for months before actually going away.

What is happening?

The other day Graem pointed out that I had ear hair. Then she pointed out that I had nose hair. Right when I had thought she had been brutal enough she started in on my pimples!

Thanks kid, right?

A few years ago I was given acne treatment to try to clear up my skin. It was outrageously expensive and insurance didn't cover a dime!

Why am I in my thirties and still getting pimples? I thought that was suppose to end when you graduate from high school!

You've heard of air guitar, right?

Well, now there's a new kid on the block - air tools!

Margot would be in heaven if she came across etoolsnow.com! They have some great tools and air tools seem to be the way to go. I can guarantee you that if she were to see all of the great tools available she would justify how to get them.

I should have her sign a contract to do the deck and for every 10 hours she puts in on the house -- she gets a new tool.

A nice rental...

is what I would be up for during maternity leave!

I'm not one for staying at a hotel and very honestly I just like to spread out and make myself at home when I am on vacation.

What really makes sense is the idea of Branson rentals! Not only can you get a great deal on a nice rental but Branson is a wonderful place for small and big kids to have a fun time and see some great country music!

Yee-Haw!

Must add...

to our to do list - install new home theatre and speaker mount!

Margot's dad gave us an old Sony Home Theatre DVD and speaker set last time we were in New York City. Ours died a while back and every once in a while as you're watching a program it will all of a sudden go dead or create this deafening noise!

So maybe this weekend we'll get around to installing our "new to us" home theatre system!

Maternity = Vacation time?

It's all up in the air now with Margot's dad. Because her brother has been pulling double time with his care, school, and work. So when the baby gets here it's going to mean us stepping in a lot more to manage his care and also physically take care of him.

However, if all goes well and he's doing better I don't think it'd be out of the realm of possibility for us to take a trip or mini-vacation!

In fact, I've heard that Hilton Head rentals are the place to go for a nice get away. It just makes sense when you have a family to go to a nicer place that offers space and a home-like atmosphere!

If it's not one thing...

Yesterday Margot got an email that her dad had been taken to the cardiac ICU and that he was going to be put on a CPAP machine and also intubated if things didn't get better with his heartrate and breathing.

Of course, this caused major concern and yesterday afternoon was spent on the phone with doctors and family figuring out if she should go to NYC or wait it out.

It seems like we're always trying to juggle things in our life. A few years back it was dealing with a loved one and managing their drug rehabilitation...now it's working with the hospitals and social workers at the hospital.

Blind as a bat.

The other day on my way back from Syracuse I stopped at the local optical. Our friend, Rich, is the owner and always gives us great deals on glasses.

We talked about the fact that it's been almost five years since I've had a check up and new glasses! Of course, he's telling me to wait until after I have the baby to get this done because the hormones can really whack out my eyes.

Until then I should think about getting a magnifier to help with viewing the computer and books!

31 and 33 week belly shots









Two weeks worth of pure belly!

Hookin' a sister up.

One thing that never loses it’s value is gold! Even when our stocks are floundering you can always look to silver, gold, and precious metals to maintain their value.

Monex Deposit Company offers silver, gold, and other precious metals for delivery or they will make arrangements to have your metals stored privately and securely at a bank or depository.

You can buy gold coin through Monex and they make it very easy through their website.

I didn’t realize this but Monex Deposit Company (MDC) is an industry leader. They sell gold in two forms: coin or ingot. The world demand now exceeds the supply demand for gold - which makes it a pretty smart investment.

Ready for that special day??

Okay, so I must admit that our special "day" is right around the corner! We're almost at 37 weeks and it's almost time for Margot and me to have a getaway and have intimate moments!

I can hardly wait.

Of course, no afternoon getaway would be complete without silk bedding! I'm sure that we'll probably just come home and play the Wii or watch a movie at the theatre!

GOLD...

is expensive!

This past weekend we went to the store on the commons that has the rings that we've been eyeing for years. When we looked at them three years ago they were around $800 or so for a white gold ring.

Now they were up to over $1,200!

At this point we should just consider another route and go with a gold bangle! It might be cheaper, plus it might be more secure!

Clean it out!

So lately, I've had some poo issues. I know it's just part of being pregnant and I'm thankful that I've been able to go instead of being constipated.

After I pop this kid I might be up for doing one of the colon cleanser products that's out there.

Since Margot's family has a history of colon cancer and lately Margot's been having some issues herself...maybe I can find a good cleanser and we can have a family cleansing!
