Ugh! So tired of it....

I should really, really be sleeping however......I have a mini-rant.

I don't know why there is even a speed zone outside of my house! No one follows it and no one enforces it so why bother?!?!? I want spike strips and the ability to use them consequence free. Or better yet - I'd love to put a speed bump or a speed divot (think inverted speed bump) in the road at the edge of my property so that when speeders hit it they know. It's just so frustrating and it seems to have gotten worse this year. I don't know if I'm just noticing it more or what but it's getting to the point that I'm going to contact someone - as soon as I find out who to contact. Part of my reasoning is that there are kids in the area (not to mention L who I nanny for and my own bundle of joy) and there are more people who are walking on the road now (which is another whole topic on it's own). I'm afraid that someone is going to get hurt or killed because some idiot can maintain 30 mph for 200 ft (or whatever the distance is - which isn't far in reality) until they reach the village limit. I literally live like 3 or 4 houses from the sign! UGH!
Now that the speed rant is over....

Things here are doing good. Nugget is kicking more and more (and I can feel it!) and J has gotten to feel it - both by listening to my belly and by actually feeling it through my belly with his hand. Had a really good appointment on Monday where the midwife said I was doing wonderfully and we got to hear the heartbeat on the doppler again. Life is good. J took my first belly shot picture other day - at my request (yeah I know!). It wasn't that bad. I don't want to not have any but I've been so anti picture my entire life that it's hard to believe that I'll ever look decent in one. I honestly didn't look too bad. I haven't gained any weight but that's probably going to start to change soon. I've been trying to watch what I eat (and not as it goes in my mouth either - lol) and make healthier choices when I find that I am hungry but it's hard and doesn't always go to plan. LOL.

Alright - back to trying to sleep.
