Another reality hit that we face is Ryan is having to get rid of or pack up all his books for baby #2. Anyone who remotely knows Ryan knows what a book worm he his. He has a whole bookshelf full of his favorites and boxes and boxes of others too. We have no other place to put the bookshelf in the house, so he is having to empty out the shelves, for they will be replaced with baby things since that room will now be the nursery. He is going to actually try to sell his books and get a new Kindle. (Its a device that you can download books onto and read them off this little computer device instead of having a ton of books taking up space.) I know he is torn between selling his books and packing them away, either way, this stinks for him too.
I was just kind of down yesterday that we don't have enough space for just the little things that we want to hold onto, for down the road use. Maybe something will still work out with getting a larger house, I guess we'll have to wait and see.
All I can say is that, if I ever do get down to my size 6 or 8, I'M GOING SHOPPING!

Side note: Here is the latest picture of me and my belly. I keep forgetting to have Ryan take the picture, so I did it yesterday by myself. Sorry for the poor shot, but you can get the idea anyway. I am bound and determined that this child will have just as many pictures as Adriana (this coming from a second child), but right now, I haven't been off to a great start. I will do better.

This is all so weird to me though. We had just talked to our realtor on Thursday and told him that we wanted to take our house off the market (too many out there for competition and we haven't had ANYONE come and look at it). We were actually going to contact the builder about a possible trade on a bigger house up the street. Our realtor was suppose to contact us on Friday to sign papers and get it off the market. Well, I had a Realtor call me on Friday evening and tell me that they have a couple interested in looking at our house on Sunday. I just think the timing is pretty strange. Maybe if we get it sold we can just buy a house up the street instead of worrying about a builder trade. If anything, the cool thing is, we are selling our house with a home warranty and because this A/C problem has happened while our house is still on the market, it will be covered by the warranty, even if we don't sell our house. This is a blessing because we will only have a $75 deductible no matter what the problem is. I also think the timing of this is great too. Saying since the day before we were going to take it off the market, and now we have had all this new events unfold. The only problem is we have to clean in the super heat today and have to show our house with no A/C. Hopefully we can get someone out here in the next 48 hours. Enjoy your A/C today!

Everyone has always said that Adriana looks just like me, poor child! I was going through some pictures today and came across these two. I thought we looked similar because we had about the same smile, and of course, a sweet face. :) Just thought I would share them with you, if I come across anymore, I will try to post them.

We have had a lot of new "adventures" within the last week or so. For one thing, we joined a new community center here in Ozark, which is a lot of fun. Now mind you, we should be working out and trying to stay trim, but they have a great aquatics area that has slides, a lazy river, fountains and lots of other things, so we enjoy taking Adriana there and she loves it. Its a really great facility. Very family orientated and not too expensive (the best part).
Zoe also got in ANOTHER cat fight last week. She had gotten in a cat fight a couple of months ago, and by the time I looked outside she was chasing the cat that got in our backyard around and they were rolling on the ground fighting. Zoe suffered a gash above her eye. Well, apparently she has forgotten what it was like to get beat up by a wild cat. Last week we had the windows open and I hear the infamous cat fight sounds and look out and Zoe had gotten out of our fenced in yard and was being chased by a different cat. I ran to the front door and by then they had gone their separate ways and Zoe was hunched over on the front porch. She didn't allow any of us to touch her for the rest of the night, and by the next day she didn't leave the bed. She laid in bed for 2 days (which is not like her at all, she's lazy but not that lazy). I knew she was in pain. She eventually let me look at her back (where chunks of fur where coming out) and I saw a few blood spots. She has a couple of big bumps on her back still, but she is back to her old self. She still doesn't like to go outside, but it won't be long before she forgets what happened and will probably get in another fight.
On to the Goopy Eyes part. All of a sudden Adriana has had the worse goopy eyes. They are matted shut in the mornings and they can get nasty during the day. The doctor just said to try her on some allergy medicine and see how that goes. She has never had problems with her eyes, so the first day she woke up with them matted shut, I wondered if she might have pink eye. Well, I was telling Ryan that that's what it might be, so she runs in our bathroom and digs out my pink nail polish (what we paint her toes with and call them pink toes). She comes running in and holds the polish bottle up to her eyes and says "pink eyes". It was so funny. She has also started calling them goopy eyes, since that's what I call them. So now, she wakes up every night, in the middle of the night, crying out "goopy eyes, goopy eyes", whether she has them or not. I'm getting tired of trying to clean this nastiness off her eyes. I hope it will pass soon! They seem to be getting better, but they still can get matted shut. I just need my sleep! Whatever am I going to do when this baby comes!
Speaking of babies (did you like my intro into this next part?), there are a TON of people pregnant now that are due in the last few months of the year. I don't know if I'm noticing it because I'm pregnant or what, but I know at least 15 people that are due Sept-Dec. Its crazy! Also, we HOPEFULLY find out what we are having this Friday. And hopefully I can get a specific due date too. I'm very anxious and will pass along results when we get them.
Well, I would say that's about it for now. Its going to be a hot one today, so I'm taking Adriana to a pool in Nixa for what they call, "splash time" geared towards littler kids. We went last year and she loved it. We'll see. I'll try to take pictures. Hope everyone has a great day!

Eating Chocolate pudding as fast as she could.
All in all, we had a great time, minus my lovely encounter with little tea cups.
