Managing...

Okay so being managers isn't ALWAYS what its cracked up to be. I love doing most of it, but there are times when I really don't like being the bad guy. Steve has officially decided that I am the bad cop and he is the good cop. I don't like that. I would rather they hate Steve rather than me. But life isn't fair and anyone who tells you otherwise, is selling something. The Davenport's, the owners, seem to really like us and the job that we are doing. So that is a good thing. Usually I will get up and straighten the house a little bit before people come over and start asking questions or paying for something. Then, if I get around to it, I will water the lawn for a couple hours to keep the property looking nice. I have to clean the laundry room and the lounge everyday. Which includes taking out the trash and moving the couches back to where they need to be. I also have to feed the fish and take care of the pond, making sure that it is full and the fish don't die. All good things. Doing the paperwork I don't really mind, but I really don't like having to go door to door collecting rent from people and being the bad guy. I think I will have Steve put up our privacy windows in the house so that we can have the windows open to let some light in, but people can't see in. One of those magical things... Our office hours are from 10am to 5pm, but that doesn't seem to register with some of the students. We have had people stopping by at like 9pm! What the heck?! That is my bedtime. Why?! That is the frustrating part. We are having a mandatory meeting this Wednesday about Crestwood and the rules and stuff and that is something that we are going to go over so that Steve and I can still have "OUR" time.
News about our little baby Caleb...

I went to the doctor the other day and they told me that I have an excessive amount of amniotic fluid. Which can mean some pretty bad things can happen. The placenta can detach early, which is no good. And other things that I still need to get clarified on. The doctor said that this only happens to 1% of women, so lucky me. He also said that the things that can cause it is that the baby or I can have gestational diabetes or like a cleft palate or lip. I don't remember which. I'm not too worried about it though. These things can be fixed. He wants me to have a no-stress screening test done every week though just to watch things and make sure everything is still going okay. From what I understand, they just hook you up to a monitor machine thingy and monitor the baby's heart beat and how much amniotic fluid is in there and making sure you're not having contractions. So, it is going okay right now. I haven't had any tests yet, so no update there. I'm excited to see everyone and to steal mom away for Thanksgiving. HEHEHEHEHEHE... that will be fun! I am now about 29 or 30 weeks along, depending on which doctor you go by. So we only have about 10 or 11 weeks left! How exciting! My project this month is to get the baby's room ready. And by that I mean painted and everything put together. And set up. I need more diapers still and to figure out how to put that darn carseat in the car. I have no clue how it goes in there. Some help from those past mothers and fathers out there that know how to set it all up?
Steve has started school again finally. He is taking Accounting, a Business class, Family Religion, Economics, and something else. He is liking them so far, which is good. He comes home to stop and get something to eat everyday which is awesome. All but one of his classes is right across the street so he doesn't have to walk or ride his bike very far. It is already starting to get a little chilly here somedays. Hopefully, we won't have snow until at least October this year. Well life is good. I hope you like my house!

I love your cute place! Sounds like things are going good!! Also I had to do non stress tests the last couple months of my pregnancy, they do exactly what you said and a lot of times do an ultrasound to check things out. I can't believe you are so close to delivering!!! We can't wait to see pictures of that cute baby boy! Good luck over the next couple of weeks!
