2 positive words of advice
Today is day 3. Day 3 is not starting off well at all! The dryers/fans/ whatever those loud machines are keep flipping our breakers and we lose power. My husband has been dealing with that for the past 2 days. Finally at 5am he had enough. We had to unplug the dryers. I then was able to plug about half back in without them tripping the breaker. Half is better than non at all!
Also at 5am Asher woke up vomiting. Poor guy. I had him at the pediatrician on Tuesday. He does not have an ear infection. The doctor thinks he just had a 24 hour bug.
While I was running up and down the stairs throwing his sheets in the washer, I noticed their dehumidifier leaked water all over the living room. GREAT! We already had a water issue. I could not wait for the guys to come back today so I could rattle off all my concerns. The poor guy literally opened my door and my response was "Good morning, I don't mean to bombard you but I need to leave and we are having problems." As soon as I told the guy about the dehumidifier his jaw dropped and he ran downstairs while I was in mid sentence. I am thankful he listened to my concerns and fixed them.
My garage is full of all of Asher's playroom belongings and our entire living room. Therefore I have to park in the driveway. Last night it snowed. So while carrying Asher to the car of course I had to take a nasty fall. It really was like slow motion. I thought "what do I do with Asher, Do I quickly throw him and hope he lands in the snow?, NO! NO! that's an awful idea, momma bear hug him"! So that is what I did. I hugged Asher into my chest & belly and went down on my knees. Asher landed on his bottom and looked at me like "what just happened mom." I brushed us off and we had to go! I had a baby appointment this morning. Luckily Asher only vomited once this morning and my sitter is AMAZING and offered to still take him for me!
Unfortunately they could not get me in for an ultra sound today. I am scheduled for next week. I did get to hear baby's heart beat and know what to watch for. So everything should be okay!
There are all these things going on that I cannot control. I need to control the situation. I like to have a plan and I like to be organized. A dear friend of mine gave me 2 great pieces of advice yesterday. I am very grateful for her. She has been on everyday with me checking in and trying to keep me sane!
The first thing is, "We make plans, God laughs." How true is that? I always plan everything! And usually it does not go as planned. Second wonderful piece of advice is "Control what you can control." There is a lot that I can not control and wont be able to control through this process. I can't control that those men wont put plastic down on my floors. What I can control is that I can use my awesome Bissell Crosswave every day over that area. I can not control that my furniture is not in it's proper place. What I can control is moving it to my parents shed which will allow me to park in the garage and hopefully not fall.
Once I finally pulled my head out of my butt yesterday I got everything accomplished on my list of things to do. It felt great and I kept telling myself to take control of things I can control. That will be my motto through this whole process!
