Misc Stuff

My poor mom - yet again she had issues with her flights yesterday. She was supposed to get to Ohio at 5:30 p.m., instead it was 12:30 a.m. At least she was here for the ultrasound but I still feel bad for her. Then my a**hole brother is all, "why did you book her on US Air? They suck". Umm, there was weather issues, it really had nothing to do with the airline. He's such a dick and his only concern was my mom watching his kid today. I just hope my son doesn't get any genetics from either of my brothers.

In other news, my lower back feels totally f*ct for lack of a better term. It feels like I'm not going to be walking by the end of the day. I'm sure making the 5 hour round trip to the airport didn't help. I'm thinking it's from pregnancy since I seem to be in some sort of growth spurt where my hips are separating from the rest of my body. And I've been trying to sleep on my side, I am so not a side sleeper. Maybe I should've practiced this before getting pregnant. I bought one of those body pillows to see if it will help. Mary is jealous of body pillow. I'm hesitant to buy one of those expensive prego pillows but I just may have to if this doesn't work. I tried to buy some Icy Hot or Ben Gay last night but I'm not sure what I can take, everything said consult a physician if you're preggers. Luckily, I have an appointment on Friday but I may not be able to wait that long. Girl needs some relief.

The caseworker came by last night so we could sign even more paperwork, apparently this transfers us over as adoptive parents to C2. I didn't think this would happen until we legally finalized an adoption but apparently it's the end of the month so they wanted to make sure they cut us off from any foster benefits. Too funny, I've never seen the caseworker do anything timely before. We signed but now need to check if he can even go on our health insurance. We don't think he can until he's actually adopted. On that aspect, we finalized our paperwork earlier in the week so now it's up to somebody to give us the go ahead. We also have to do some fingerprint background check but can't do it until our paperwork is approved. I thought this was weird since we had a background check when we became foster parents but I guess it didn't involve fingerprints. Oh well, it's a confusing process that I hope is over soon.

Weather issues with travel seem to be the order of the winter. My youngest son was supposed to come home for a visit last weekend and his flight was cancelled.

How is your back now? Better I hope.
