Tired, Cranky, and Hostile

Nothing is happening on the house. And if you've got a problem with that you had better keep it to yourself. I've discovered that being nine months pregnant can make you very tired, cranky, and a little less receptive to criticism.

We are done having Dale work on projects. We decided with some of the major cost we have coming up that we need to start saving some money. Tim refuses to work on anything until he has his field work done even though I've politely reminded him that he promised to have the down stairs bathroom done and the door separating the up-stairs from the down up before the baby comes. Lucky for him I've become so tired and cranky I haven't gotten up the energy to ask him non-politely.

I have been spending what little free time I've had putting together pack-and-plays, annoying toys, high chairs, etc. These items have proven to be more difficult to assemble than any house-related project I have taken on. A certain Fisher Price play yard had me in tears threatening it with the screw-driver in my hand one evening. One important lesson I have learned however is that even if the instructions do not call for a hammer, you need one.

Sheesh! Have a little "spam" with your frustration! (Don'tcha just hate spam!!). Anyway, you're doing a great job! It's ok to be irritable in the last days of pregnancy! If we weren't, we'd never be ready for labor but, because we're pretty fed up with pregnancy by the end of 40 weeks, we'll do anything to get that little one out!

Keep us posted!!

I feel for you. Actually, I've been through childbirth four times, and I didn't find it much of a bother at all. Of course, my wife might have more to say about that.

You are right, those things are a pain to put together. Just wait until the toys start flowing in, and every single toy today is either screwed into the box, or has a million twisty wires holding it in place. It's so annoying, and just makes me want to scream, especially when all three of my kids want their toys opened at the same time! lol

Good luck with everything, and I can't wait to read about your new baby! :)

My four kids are long past needing pack n plays and high chairs. But I have a granddaughter that I care for while her parents are at work, so we have all that stuff around here too. I'm amazed at how high tech things have become in 20 yrs!! Boggles the mind!

Good luck with the coming birth of your little one. I'll add my two cents in that I'm anxiously awaiting hearing about the new baby right along with everyone else.

God Bless~

Just sending you big hugs. It'll all be worth it when you're holding that precious baby in your arms, I promise!

And I hope that Pack and Play is cowering in the corner! ;)
