Hooray for boring normality!

Well I guess this picture doesn't illustrate the boring part but this is pretty normal around my house. Don't you love the rust stains in the toilet too? YUCK!!! I got some stuff for that I hope it works. I'm so grateful for Christmas break to be over and to have a little time to get ready for this baby to come. I have two and a half weeks left unless I actually go into labor which hasn't happened before so we'll see. I was starting to go a little crazy with all the festivities since I don't get much sleep at the moment due to my pelvic joint being separated by about 2 centimeters wich I have been told by my doctor is because I have had five kids fairly close togeather. He also told me so kindly that there is nothing I can do to make the pain go away. I went to the chiropractor for the first time and he pretty much said the same thing. I guess I will just have to stick it out until the end. I will be trading getting no sleep because of pain to getting no sleep because of a hungry baby. I'll take the hungry baby any day.
We are not moving at the moment. Suprisingly Man#1 didn't get either job which has never happened before so I guess the timing is not right yet. I can't say that I'm too dissapointed I wasn't looking forward to moving right after having a baby. Been there done that. I'm excited to stay put for a little while so we can save money. I'm a little worried about fitting six boys in our three bedroom place but at least most of them are still little enough that they don't care about sharing rooms.
Why is it that every picture of this little guy is of him getting very messy? I guess we'll never know. We did manage to have Christmas through all our craziness. Here are a couple of cute shots. The one of the tree is before the baby got to it. The bottom third of the tree was bare most of the time it was up. That's pretty normal. The only time our tree looks pretty is the first moments after we put it up and the first moments on Christmas morning after Santa has fixed it and put candy canes on it. I am looking forward to a day when I can get glass ornaments again only to get rid of them again once we have grandkids which won't be that far away considering Boy #1 is 16. It could be as soon as like 7 years. Could you imagine me a grandma at 35? Wow, How fun!
I hope all is well with all of you. Next time I write I will hopefully be done being pregnant forever!!!! I'll be sure to get some cute pictures to share of the new little man. See you in a month.
