Awake at 2:30am?? What?

I have no idea why I can't sleep....

Had a good productive weekend, was exhausted at 9pm... awake by 12:30 and mind going a mile a minute. Geez, could I please just take advantage of my week off where I actually CAN sleep a solid 8 hours (minus a few potty breaks, thank you 3rd trimester).

Oh well, since I'm up, I figured I'd share the recent happenings of the Volovsek family... (I know you're all dying of suspense)!

Hmmm, what first? Well, last week I worked Monday-Wednesday and while it was pretty crazy, I had such a great team of ladies working with me... I honestly didn't mind all that much. My legs were protesting with some pretty awesome charlie-horse cramps at night, but whatever?!

The weekend went quickly as usual, but Ryan was on a mission to get some much needed work done in our sub-garage (aka : the man's room, or his workshop), so both Friday night and yesterday his Dad was down helping him out, and Saturday my Dad took a shift! They got a lot accomplished, even though it doesn't look like much.

It was fun to have my Dad here on Saturday too, even though he was in the basement with Ry most of the time. He picked my sister up from school on his way down, so I got to visit with her and Lila got some snuggle time with her Auntie! (She liked clomping around in Alex's shoes too!)

Yesterday, my mother-in-law, Barb, came down as well and bless her heart helped me clean up around my house!!! Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!! I'm not sure my kitchen would even get the cleaning attention it needed if it weren't for that lady!

Other news, we moved Lila downstairs to her "big girl" room last night! She's still in her crib and will stay there until it can no longer contain her, but we thought she should at least have time to transition to the change of scenery! The room doesn't look like much now, but thanks to a cute new duvet, and some small purchases from, it will be darling in no time!! I'll post pics when it's a little more put-together!

Lastly, then I swear I'll stop rambling.... our other lady of the house, miss Rio, FINALLY went into heat. (notice the stylin' diaper and duct tape in the picture!?!) What does this mean? Well, it means that Ryan and I are pretty much insane and have made the decision to breed her this cycle. Why are we crazy??? Well, lets do some math... she will meet up with her "baby-daddy" this week and dogs typically have a 9 week gestation. I'm currently 30 weeks pregnant.... 10 to go. Hmmm, what does this mean? That Ryan and I have VOLUNTARILY taken on the task of having a toddler, a newborn, and a litter of puppies at our house, all at the SAME TIME!!! I must be a whack-job! Ah well, as my sister-in-law says... "Go big or go home!"

This is just a random video I found that Ryan took one night I was at work! Thought it was cute! Don't mind the super healthy dinner of hot-dogs and chips, or the total "Ace Ventura" hair-do she's rockin'!

  1. wow, you are going to have your hands full!!!! Sounds like fun, though. Miss you guys so much. Miss lila is so cute. I have a little thing here for her that I made. Kind of corny, but I was making the girls one and thought I would make one for all the little girls in my life. Will send it soon....or maybe we can get together sometime in the NEAR future to hang out. Talk to you soon. Hope all is going well with Lila and the baby.....
