Well, I think that the baby has now dropped and is settling in down on my pelvis. This is not a comfortable feeling overall. She's definitely not as high as she was, so at least I'm not getting kicked in the diaphragm so much, so breathing is easier. It won't be too much longer before she comes out, probably screaming her cute little head off. She's so like me already! I also feel like Mikel in that I keep feeling this desire to close my eyes and sleep. Well, the physical desire. I don't really want to do it. I feel so lazy!

I'm also hungry. A lot. I need a constant influx of food, but that's probably not the best idea. Oh well. I'll get something to munch on here soon. I'm also trying to put off taking the pain medication for my tooth that I got prescribed to me by my doctor since I really don't want to feel even more of a need to fall asleep just yet. I'm supposed to get the tooth dealt with as soon as possible. Apparently, it won't be until at least next Friday before it happens. Hopefully I can hold out that long. I hate mouth pain with a passion. At least labour, while more painful, goes away after a few hours!

Tomorrow promises to be a rowdy day since Allyn and Jason have the day off from school due to a teacher inservice day. They're looking forward to the three day weekend. Bait said he'll take Jason around with him when he goes to work on people's lawns and such and will give him some money for helping. Jason jumped on this, of course. It's good to have Jason distracted like that. Allyn is fine that way since she spends time either reading, drawing, or doing things on her computer. So I shan't complain about it.

I guess that's about it for now. I'm getting antsy for the baby. And I'm hungry, so I'm going to get something to eat. I say that a lot these days.

Here it is, the day after Christmas, and I'm still tired from everything yesterday. I think it's going to take another day or two to recover. But hey, it was a great Christmas, so I'm not complaining. It made me realize how lucky I am.

I don't think the house has ever been as full as it was yesterday. Jesse's parents and sister made a surprise appearance, which was cool, and Cheyenne's dad showed up Christmas Eve and will be leaving after the first of the year. I'd never met him before, and I'm glad I did. He's a super guy, and seems so damn sweet. He made sure to bring a few things for the whole group, so he certainly endeared himself to many hearts.

Randy and Peter's parents were here as well, which was expected, and Laura's mother and stepdad as well as the siblings on that side showed for a few hours. So there were lots of families at least somewhat reunited for the day. It was really neat. And of course, my mom was here as well. It hadn't snowed or anything, so she was able to drive over.

Mikel did get Cult the laptop, and we've been working on teaching him how to use it. I talked to him for a little while about how he can write whatever he wants on there and that it might make him feel a little better to write some things out. He's unsure, but said he'd think about it. I got him a couple more PS2 and computer games as well as some clothes that he really needed. Black, of course. I don't think I've ever seen him wear anything else, except for blue jeans. He got a bunch of other stuff as well, which he seemed somewhat overwhelmed about, even though it's happened before. It's so hard for him to comprehend all of this. He actually ate quite a bit though, which is a good sign. He's only been pecking at his food lately. I really wanted to see him eat a nice big meal. I also passed on the Christmas greetings from those on here who sent them, and he stared at me a bit before shaking his head and muttering something about telling you thanks. He's still bewildered about it, but I think he's starting to get slightly curious about the people he doesn't know who wish him well.

Let's see. I'd write out everything I got, but it would take far too much room on here and too much time. I will pass on some, though.

1. Bunches of snowmen. Lots and lots. Woo! This includes figures, a cool serving set from my mom, stuffed ones from John and Jason, etc.
2. Bunches of wolf things (figured, pictures, etc.) from my extended family. I need a new house just to store all of my wolf stuff.
3. The Mage Tarot Deck
4. Stuffed penguin
5. Book on Celtic Mythology
6. 128 MB Jump Drive
7. Ruben Studdard CD
8. Sweater with a snowman and a penguin. Double cool!
9. Sweatshirt with a cool picture of a galleon on it.
10. Snowglobe with a rotating top so you can have the actual snowman globe on top or a penguin lying down.
11. Quite a few other pieces of clothing.
12. Langston Hughes Collected Poems
13. Candles
14. More books

Hmm. That was fun. I just leaned forward in my computer chair to push back a snowman near the edge on my desktop, and it slid out from under me. Ow. My hip now hurts. I think that's a sign to stop the list. Maybe I'll add to it later.

Oh, I do want to mention that Bree was thrilled with her present from Vernon, which Mikel helped him pick out. Ahem. He got her a lavendar sweatshirt with a kitten on it that said "Just Call Me Muffin." ::snickers:: Vernon insisted she wear it because he got it for her. The look on her face was precious. She shot Mikel the dirtiest look, but put the sweatshirt on. I think it's only fair, considering what she got Mikel. Mwa!

I think that's all for now. I think I need to lie down in a bit. Dumb chair.
