Turning 30

This coming work week is a short one.  My 30th birthday is on Friday and I decided to take both Thursday & Friday off.  Heath is also taking Thursday & Friday off.  Our Thursday is going to start out a little lame.  We have to wait for the garbage disposal mechanic to show up between 8am-12pm.  Something is jammed in it and we need it to start working again ASAP.  I am really hoping the company shows up between 8am-9am.  We don't have huge plans for Thursday, but I don't want to spend half of my day at home.  I am hoping we can go up to Fremont Street and play some games up there like we did last year.  Maybe squeeze in a little shopping too.  I want to head over to the Dooney & Bourke outlet store and see if any of the purses strike an interest.  On Friday, we are going up to Mount Charleston in the early afternoon for some lunch at the lodge and to go hiking on the easy trails.  While it's about 107 degrees in Las Vegas, it's going to be 82 degrees on the mountain.  It's going to be perfect.

The weather has been getting a little bit nicer around here.  It was only 99 degrees yesterday.  We took Carleigh to the park before lunch so she could run around and burn off some energy for a nap.  We ended up taking her back to the park in the afternoon to play at the water park.  She was having a blast.  The water park in our community shoots water out of the ground and the kids fill up water balloons and just have a really good time.  It's not an actual water park with the slides and lazy river.  That kind of water park is a few miles from our house, but I'm not at all interested in going until Carleigh is older because she can't go on any of the other rides except the kiddie area.  It would be a waste of money to go right now.

Carleigh is outside playing with the neighbor's right now as Heath washes/waxes my car.  I'm actually not sure what he's doing out there.  All I know is that he is cleaning my car.  He might not be waxing it.  My car is way overdue for a bath.  I don't take to my car to get washed the entire month of July because that's our monsoon season.  I just let it stay dirty from July 1 until sometime in August.  It will be nice to drive to work in a clean car again... until some bird takes a crap on it.

At my ultrasound on Monday, I was measuring a week behind and we had a heartbeat of 125bpm.  I think I am measuring a week behind because I ovulated a little late in my cycle.  My doctor seemed concerned, but I really do hope it was the late ovulation that is causing all of this.  I am not having any other complications that would indicate a miscarriage was going to happen.  My doctor is having me come back on the 20th for another ultrasound to make sure the baby is growing properly.  I was so nauseous on Friday night.  I threw up a little bit in the evening after my bath.  My fatigue has finally died down this weekend.  It was so bad the last couple of weeks.  There is no need to take a nap today.  It feels great.
