A blurb from me, and an AWESOME giveaway opportunity

It has been a LONG time since I actually posted just to post.  And I guess this will not qualify either, because I am inserting a link for a giveaway at the end :)

I have been off all week - cleaning my house (you wouldn't believe how messy it actually got)  I neglected it while studying for my CPA exams, which by the way I PASSED, all four sections are completed, and I should be getting my license soon.  So, my house was on the back burner.

What does this mean?  Floors need cleaned.  Dusty tables.  Hair on my curtains where my cats look out the window all day.  Cluttered closets. Piles of mail. etc, etc.

I am an accountant, and tax season quickly approaches, so here I am trying to get everything in order and hope we can keep a semblance of it during tax season.  I am going to start scheduling my cleaning days, and meals.  I will probably post more about this as time goes on :)

Yesterday I pulled a muscle in my side and lower right abdomen.  At least that is what I think.  I am now 28 weeks pregnant.  I cannot believe it.  I have had no issues so far with my pregnancy, so when I awoke this morning to a sharp pain, I was freaked.  I couldn't get into a comfortable position - my husband woke up asking what was wrong.  I told him I didn't know!  I went to the bathroom - no spotting. Thank God.  but still cramping.  Thankfully Baby H was moving around so I didn't doubt that he or she was OK.
I called the Dr. and they think I just twisted something in my sleep, as long as baby is moving and there is no spotting or bleeding, I am OK, but if I happen to spot I am to go to the hospital.  I don't think anything is wrong - Baby has been moving a lot and I am not cramping anymore, it just feels a little tender on my side.

I am pretty sure I overdid it on the cleaning thing.  I lifted too much, and did too much.  I guess that there is a point where I DO have to slow down.  So, I am taking it a little easier today, still cleaning a lot, but not lifting anything even slightly heavy!

I have officially decided to cloth diaper - I was on the fence for a while.  I got my first set of dipes in the mail - Doopsie. I am SO excited.  My mom thinks I am a little crazy, and so do other people, but I am trying to do what is best for my baby, my wallet, and the earth.  The husband is not too crazy about the cost, so I have been trying to win cloth diaper giveaways, and I would LOVE to win the grand prize at 29 Diapers!  I already won some balm and cleanser for Baby H on this giveaway and would love to win some diapers or a wet bag!  So I am posting this for an extra entry into the grand prize.  If you are like me, and cloth diaper, go enter!  Actually, check out the site regardless, she has some great info on saving money for baby's first years, and I have learned so much from this website already!

BEST of luck to ALL who enter!
