Thursday Thoughts

– My productivity ranges from ‘do all the things’ to ‘do none of the things.’ I cleaned the house one day and the next I did nothing except finish a book. I also went to a doctor’s appointment, so I’m counting that as productivity. The other day, I rolled all of baby girl’s onesies and pajamas to save space. Now we can actually see all of them, which is a positive.

– She felt like she was doing headstands on my cervix off and on all day yesterday. It had me wondering, “Am I going to pee myself?” when standing up, but was relieved to realize, “No. I am not going to pee myself. Not today.”

– I currently have eight books to read on my NetGalley shelf, because I’ve been requesting a lot. I have no idea what amount is normal, but I am actually reading them, so I don’t feel too bad. I also have a few library books checked out, but at least my addiction is free.

– I went to the Verizon store this week, because I installed the iOS 10 update and it pushed my already-full phone to its storage limit. I have so little space remaining and have had my phone a couple years now. I even have all my photos stored elsewhere, and I still have no space. I ended up ordering a new iPhone, because they gave me a lot more credit back for my old phone than if I had switched brands.

So my phone should arrive sometime in November, yippee. Now all I need is a sweet new case – I’d love to find a Disney one. I went with the black this time since I currently have gold so I’m not sure how the clear cases would work out.

– While I was at Verizon, one of the employees checked my cable/internet service that I have through them to see if it was updated enough. It wasn’t – I’m on a super-old plan, and apparently my router was ancient. I haven’t messed with our cable plan since we moved here.

So, he ordered us a new router and upgraded our internet speed and our bill also went down, which was nice. I had to finally sign up for the 2-year agreement, but supposedly military can cancel if we were to get orders to somewhere else, so I figured I’ll deal with that when it comes. I wouldn’t mind kicking cable since I rarely watch it, but Greg watches it for sports and movies, and now our bill is not too outrageous.

– Baby name picking is hard, but we have had one picked out for a while that we both really like. I know someone on my Facebook named their baby the same first name, but since I don’t really see them in person and haven’t talked to them in years, I don’t think I necessarily need to tell them our plans.

I’ve had to get over some baby name hurdles, and I decided that if it’s a name we love, go for it. I know that I want my baby to have a ‘unique’ name, but it’s unlikely that any name I pick will not be used by anyone else. I’d rather go with what we feel we love.

I’m linking up with Kristin and Joey today for Stuff & Things.

  1. I love all the baby clothes all rolled up, so cute and pastel. 🙂 I just requested a bunch of netgalley books (against my better judgement and book ban… ah well). Ha, oh no! I'm glad that you didn't pee yourself on that day. Oh boy, not having any experience with this… pregnancy sometimes seems like a cruel joke! 😛 My sister is always telling me little tidbits and I wish I had advice or helpful things to chime in with. For now just listening will have to be enough. Oh, a new phone… they are getting me with the low light photo upgrades… kind of silly… Good luck with the name picking! I think that would be so hard! :/ XO – Alexandra

  2. We cancelled our satellite back in the spring. It just costs way too much considering we spend most of our TV time with Netflix and HULU. Chris got Playstation Vue for football games and any cable things we might want. It is only like $20 or $30 a month or something like that so it isn't too bad. I got the new iPhone yesterday 🙂 I love it!! I want a pretty disney case like that!


  3. The baby name struggle is real! It is such a tough decision.
    I really need a new phone, I still have a iphone 5 and the screen is starting to get a little wonky around the edges. There are just so many other things I'd rather spend money on…


  4. Yep, definitely go with a name you love and don't worry about anything else! We had the hardest time coming up with a name for Caleb! I wanted a unique name, but not one that was odd or made up lol. My hubby kept picking SUPER common names and I didn't want that at all. We finally settled with Caleb.


  5. I agree, go with a name you love and don't worry about a thing! I know in my group of friends, people don't want to share the names yet they get so upset if one finds out or if they name their baby it before them. Its okay, we can have more than one such and such!

    Stopping by from the link up!


  6. Now I'm kind of scared to update my phone. Storage is always an issue.
    I really like that mermaid case, but I found that the clear Otterbox was too thin for my liking with the iPhone 6.


  7. i have had my baby names picked out for like 10 years lol and my cousin totally used my girl name! but he lives in england and we will never see each other, plus it's a crazy popular name. i had a 'unique' (for my time anyway) name and i want my kid to have a boring name lol. but yeah, go with what you love!
    yay for free books! and yay yay yay for your bill going down, that is awesome!


  8. It is really hard to pick! You don't want to end up with something so unique, you've named your kid Star Flower or something, but you don't want them to have the same name as lots of other kids. Caleb is wonderful, I think you guys made a great choice.
