I'm a widow.....

A Halo 3 widow that is. The game came out at midnight and DH had to get it on his way home from work. So now he is in the other room playing that. Guess I won't see him the rest of the night. That's okay b/c he's been a pregnancy widow lately, so guess I can't blame him.

We had our 2nd annual fall party on Saturday. It went great. We had a good turnout and good food. Everyone had a great time. I can definitely tell we are getting older and everyone has kids...everyone was gone by 9 p.m.!!! LOL!!! I went to bed at 10, slept until almost 830 Sunday morning, then took a 3 hour nap Sunday afternoon. THEN...Monday night I went to bed around 830 and slept until 6 this morning. Not sure if it was the party or if it's the pregnancy, probably a combination of both but I have been WIPED OUT!!!

I have been keeping up with all your blogs and trying to comment when I have time. Last week I was B-U-S-Y! This week is a little more calm, but not as calm as I like. I have something to do every day this week and I don't like that! But at least it's just one thing and not a whole slew of things...one thing I can handle. A whole day, maybe not. Friday I am taking DS to the zoo for the day. He is so excited. I am too. We are FINALLY getting some cooler weather and it may actually feel like fall on Friday. I sure hope so!! We broke a record for high temperature yesterday so I am OVER this hot weather!

We leave for vacay in 11 days and I couldn't be happier. I am running into a problem though. We are going to Magic Kingdom one night for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I made dinner reservations for us to eat with Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, and Piglet at 6:20...from what I can read online the party doesn't start until 7. URGH!!! I am hoping and praying that we can get in at 6 and still make our dinner reservations. If the crowd is low at MK that day, we may be able to get in even earlier (like 4!!) but I am just hoping we can get in by 6. Anyone ever been to this and have any insight for me??? If you do, I would SOOOO appreciate it! I don't know if I want to change our reservation if I even could at this point, since it is less than 2 weeks away now. If anything, say a prayer we can get in at 6. I have a number to call that day to see what time they are letting guests in for the party....let's hope that day it's EARLY!!!! DS will be absolutely CRUSHED if we can't get that meal and I will too. :(

Let's see what else is going on in Amanda-land...OH...I went Friday and got fitted for my hearing aid and I get in next Wednesday (the 3rd). I am so excited. Yes, I am 28 and I need a hearing aid. My Eustachian tube has never functioned and I have had numerous surgeries throughout the years. The last one was in 1999 and it was the last one that helped me, but now they can't do anything else for me. So I am thrilled to be taking the next step. I will have to post a picture when I get it. I will tell you this though..it is RED! Hey, if I have to have it, I might as well have fun with it! :)

To answer a few questions/comments left in my comments:

No, twins do not run in my family. But they don't have to either for a person to have twins. Guess we'll see what they say at my first appointment (October 3rd!).

I know it's normal for one boob to be bigger than the other and this happens to most women (pregnant or not), but for me, it's a new thing. Not new that it's bigger, but new that it's NOTICEABLY bigger!! I mean, VERY noticeable, to me at least.

That's all I can remember for now.

As far as being pregnant, I feel okay. I feel like I have NO ROOM in my stomach at night. I mean I am hungry for dinner and I try to eat, but I feel stuffed before I get half of it down. It's bad. I am only 8 weeks...what am I going to feel like at 28 weeks?!?!? And I know the baby is not even that big right now, so it's all how I feel. I feel huge. I feel so bloated and stuffed, but I really am not eating that much. I'm not eating the greatest, but I'm not shoveling it in either. At the party on Saturday, I never finished my plate of food. I couldn't. This is weird for me!! Other than being tired and constantly feeling stuffed, I am doing good. I took some belly shots on Sunday but they didn't turn out like I had hoped. Maybe next week. :)

I think that's it for me tonight. I'm gonna hit the hay early...yet again.

Have a great Wednesday!!!!

We lived in FL when we were little, and I grew up going to Disney World. I haven't been in years, but I'm so excited for you guys! Your DS is a good age to go, too. Old enough to remember it, but not so old that he thinks that some stuff is too "babyish".

I don't have any advice, though, because we never did stuff like eating with the characters. I don't know if they did that back in the 80's...

I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. Take Care & Stay Rested! (Make use of your golden excuse to nap while you have it. Matter of fact - take a nap for me!!) :o)

Happy Wednesday Day!

Glad to hear the party went well! Have fun at the zoo, I wanted to get there with Rosie this weekend, but I'm just not sure we'll be up for it.
The vacation plans sound so fun, I hope the dinner works out. How fun would that be?!? I am so jealous, I need to get there one of these years.
Take care and get some rest!
