Is this real life?

Can it be possible? That one day after my rant things take a turn for the better? I got a phone call at about 4:30 from the doctor's office that I had my medical records transferred to and they are going to take me on as a patient! Whoo hoo! The kicker? They are also doing the three hour glucose test on Friday morning. So I will actually know if I have this stupid gestational diabetes crap or not. I distinctly remember drinking a Sweet Leaf tea before bed the night before my first test. Stupid I know, if I hadn't done that I probably wouldn't be in this mess. But there teas are amazing, I can't help myself. Lesson learned, the VERY hard way. I have never been more excited for a doctor's appointment in my life. Literally, I am excited for them to stick me with a needle four times.

Yesterday Vernon said I should sit down and make a list of everything we need to get done before Chandler graces us with his presence. Just the fact that he introduced the idea and agreed to help knock some tasks off of it makes me love him even more. Usually I'm the list person (I just only get about 1/2 of the things done on the list). He has enough on his plate as it is and typically I can handle a heavier task load than he can without snapping and losing my mind. I think he started to see me slowly come undone and know that a baby is on the way so he's now a list person too.

So my list ended up being a page front and back. When he realized I was writing on the back of the sheet of paper he said "did you really fill up the front?" Why yes sweetheart I did, welcome to my bubble of overwhelming anxiety. So we plan on knocking out some things this weekend. Unfortunately this also happens to be the one weekend that I have had the heaviest courseload at school. Again, it's not the hardest stuff by far, but it's time consuming and time is what I'm running out of. Maybe I should write a task or two that we can do everyday for the month of February. Unfortunately it's not even a leap year....sure could use that extra day right about now!

All of this ties into my New Years Resolution of finding the balance. I know that once we put in the effort of making everything super organized it will be so much easier to maintain. Plus, who doesn't love a brightly colored drawer or two with a little niche for everything? Being one of these super organized people that you read about in blogs has always been a dream of mine. Sounds silly I know, but you really do have to put in the elbow work to get started. As much as I may think I am organized, I'm really not. I guess I'm just better than most at keeping my scattered mess together. With everything going on I know this will make things easier for us in the long run. I plan on taking progress pics as I go.
