10 weeks and counting!

Wow, I only have 10 weeks left! I can't believe it! More than being anxious about the baby coming, I'm anxious about money! I really hope my husband and I can do this! My mind hasn't really been on the baby much lately because I'm just kind of over pregnancy, which sounds awful, but apparently is common. It's not that I'm not excited, I'm just ready for this little Monkey to be here! But we got a new dog last week, Jada. I want to adopt all the homeless animals in the world right now, thanks hormones, so we ended up with another dog. Another reason we got her is because we didn't want our other pup, Bella, to feel too bad or left out when the baby comes. Bella is spoiled rotten and I didn't want there to be any issues with Baby Monkey. We had a few tiffs the first week, but other than that, things have been smooth sailing! The hormones made me really sad at first for Bella, like we were taking something away from her, and I cried a few times for her, but now they love each other! While I was feeling bad for Bella, I had an epiphany about parenthood! I figure if I feel that way about my first baby, Bella, then I'm sure to feel that way about my first real baby when the time comes for a second baby! I know, that's further on down the road, but still. I think I'll be partially sad when that times comes, for my firstborn! I'm probably thinking waaaay too much about this stuff.

In other news, I think I'm finally starting to get the nesting thing going on, not that I'm doing much about it! Hubby and I cleaned out the study this past weekend and are planning on doing baby stuff this weekend. We have all the nursery furniture now, so we just need to start putting things away. Planning on doing this makes me feel like I can take on the whole house! LOL! Probably not...

I'm also making progress on the saving money thing. I'm trying to use coupons and shop the sales at my grocery store to keep my grocery bill down. I think I did well this week, bought $115 worth of groceries for $53! I'd like to get it a little lower, but I think that will come with time, practice, and a stocked pantry! Ugh, speaking of pantries, that's next on the to-do list!
