Nesting & A Lesson Learned

Today I decided it was time to cross some things off of our to-do list.  And since I was actually feeling good enough to do some house work, I knew I better take advantage of it.  We cleaned out and scrubbed the fridge, cleaned bathrooms, did laundry and a few other odds and ends things.  Is this what they call nesting?  I don't think I ever really experienced it with Kyla.  We also went in to Tyler's office to bring home his pictures and other big things.

Now I want to start making some meals to freeze.  My aunt is going to send me her cheese soup recipe, which I'm really excited about.  But I'm on the hunt for some other good recipes that you can freeze.  Any suggestions?  I just plan on looking online.  I'm sure there are plenty.  But I always like getting recipes from people I know.  So please comment if you have a good one.

In other news, I learned yesterday that it's not worth stressing over things because in the end, it will all work itself out!

Remember I told you all about my insurance dilemma?  Well, I decided to go ahead and make an appointment with a new doctor and I was planning on calling to get my records and ultrasounds faxed over to the new clinic.  But...

Instead of starting our new insurance plan Tyler's first day, the new employer is paying for our Cobra coverage so I can stay on with our current plan, have my same doctors and deliver at the same hospital we did with Kyla.  WOO HOO!  You have no idea how excited I am about this!  What a relief!  I know everything would have been perfectly fine with the new doctor and new hospital, but I just feel so confident with the plan we've had all along.  Yay!

And by the way, I cannot wait to tell you all about Tyler's new job when they launch the site.  You are all going to LOVE it!  Well, that is if you like saving money :)

  1. I've been hit with the nesting bug this week. I didn't think I was going to get it cause I've been so tired but its been nice to get things cleaned around the house and be able to relax. Thats awesome about your insurance.

  4. I should freeze some meals before I have my surgery. But probably won't get around to it. Jill and Scott can fend for themselves ;)

    If you brown up some hamburger and have it ready for quick meals like tacos, its a great time saver. I used to roast chickens ahead, shred the meat and freeze(but you can buy a rotisserie chicken cheaper than a raw one.)for casseroles.
