I am bummed and bored. It is getting to me again, no not the house so much this time, but just the things I am missing out on and the lonliness.
Gabe is gone today ALL day and won't be home until at least 8 p.m. tonight. I am sad because I look forward to his days off, and yet today it feels like just another week day. He is at a golf tournament and while the selfish part of me really wants him home, I know that he needs to have some fun.
I have so much I want to do and I want so bad to go shopping. My boys need a preemie going home outfit with a hat and while I know I will end up finding it online and all will be fine it saddens me that I can't go shopping for them. In the beginning I was scared to shop for them, so I didn't... and now I can't.
The boys room looks like a bomb hit it, a co-worker of Gabe's gave us a HUGE amount of baby items including a walker, a large swing, a travel swing, 5 garbage bags full of clothes, and much more. I was able to take some things off our registry after exploring the haul. The clothes are super cute and many things I would have picked out on my own, cowboy pj's, and camo clothes, all very boy like and very cute. We are pretty set on clothes for the boys. We don't have a large amount of matching outfits, but that is okay because the hand me downs will do just fine.
How do most people organize the clothes? I have begun to store away clothes bigger than 3-6 months. It seems confusing and crowded to have too much in the room. So we will have the 0-3 and the 3-6 outfits in the dresser and closet and then when the boys grow out of the 0-3, I will begin to pull in the 6-9 month clothes. Does that sound about right?
Yesterday was a good day, my girlfriend Heather came over and spent the day with me. She even brought me food from my favorite mexican restaurant. It was fun chatting the day away, although the conversation some how got into detail of the unmedicated births of her children and she scared the heck out of me. When Gabe got home we took a VERY quick (I swear I was not up for more than 10 minutes) trip to Ross to get a nightgown and slippers to begin to pack our hospital bag (Mima while I am thinking of it, please don't forget to bring the blue bag with you when you come for the baby shower, I am going to use that as our hospital bag.) No trying on allowed I grabbed a grey knee length nightgown with small pink, black, and white polka dots along with a pair of fuzzy black slippers. I have a soft pink robe already that I plan to bring. What do I need? The camera... toiletries... what else? What do I bring for the boys (even though I know we will have some time to get things together for them.) I was told to bring blankets for them that smell like me and our home, so maybe soon I will start sleeping with their blankets. I guess they need blankets, outfits, and maybe the pacifiers we plan to use. What else? The books I have don't really go into detail on this.
I got side tracked! After Ross we took my lounge chair to the drive in movie and watched up. It was SO FANTASTIC to get out of the house. We plan to go back to the drive in again in two weeks, it is a great way for me to get out of the house while still being on bedrest.
