January is OVER!!

I woke up today and noticed that for the first time in over 2 weeks I didn't have to blow my nose.  And it felt AWESOME!
And then I flipped over the date on my calendar and saw that it's February 1.
Ahhh, February.  That's why I'm better - because January is over.
So I'm very hopeful about February for these reasons:
1.  The never ending cold is gone
2.  Zofran is the greatest thing EVER and I finally feel like I can function on a day to day basis.
3.  Baby girl is kicking me like crazy all the time, which is my absolute most favorite part of being pregnant.
4.  Mya's binky is gone, and it wasn't even traumatic.
5.  Bryan is going out of town for a golf weekend.....you may be thinking "why are you looking forward to this?"  Because, my friends, the poor man hasn't been out of town for anything other than the occasional Scout overnighter in years and he deserves it.  And, let's be honest, I get to watch chick flicks & awful reality TV all weekend and order pizza every night if I want to.
6.  Bryan coming home from his golf weekend :)
7.  Valentine's Day - we don't have a track record of having the best Valentine's Days.  But every year we're determined to change that.
8.  One more ultrasound.  OK, I know that this is a girl.  But during the last ultrasound she REFUSED to show us her lady bits, and before I take the tags off of anything or order her super cute new bedding, I want to make sure she is a little lady.
9.  Potty training.  So, I'm really not looking forward to the process, just the end result.  I know this is going to be a fight, and I've been giving myself pep talks daily in preparation.
10.  Nesting.  I LOVE nesting.  Having the energy & desire to clean out closets, organize drawers, redecorate, I love it.  And I have been so sick that this house is in serious need of some nesting.

Welcome February, I'm so glad you're here!

Oh kiersti, you make me laugh. I was glad to see January gone too. I'm happy that you're feeling better, I hope it stays that way!!! Good luck on the potty training... I'm in denial about training annie, don't even want to go there, but I know its coming soon. Keep me posted on how mya does with it.

Here's to a fantastic February! I've been feeling the nesting feeling too. My problem is finding a distraction for the kids long enough to get something done. Are you potty training Mya already? That's something I should do too but I'm just not looking forward to it. I wish you the best in you endeavors. May they be better than mine!

I'm so glad Feb is here too, and I am NOT looking forward to potty training either. Karson HATES it so far, and I know my patience is very thin with it, so I am trying to gear myself up for it as well!
