My Pregnancy Week 36

Wow, I haven't written in a loooong time! We had a virus on our computer for a week or two there so we couldn't use it. Other than that I've just had nothing to say!

Well, I'm 36 weeks pregnant now. I can't believe it has gone by so fast. But I will admit that the time is draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaging by now. I just want to hold this little one and know who it is and you know, be able to see my feet again! *wink*

The baby clothes are washed and put away.
(oh my goodness are they small! A LOT smaller than 4T!)
The new diapers and covers are washed and ready.

Now we are just waiting and waiting.....

I try to keep myself busy, but there's not a lot to do around here. Our new house is pretty much all organized and in order except for the dining room. So that's my goal for this week.

We are also down to one car again. Christopher's car broke in our driveway a few weeks ago. So, now Timmy and I are stuck here all day with no way to get anywhere. This wasn't so much a big deal when we were living in Grandville, because we mostly walked everywhere anyways...but here in North Muskegon....there is no walking anywhere. We live in the middle of nowhere. HAHA! It mostly stinks when I'm making dinner and realize I don't have enough eggs for the cornbread and I can't just hop in the car and go get some. *sigh* but we're making it work. It is nice on Sunday mornings to all drive home from church together. Timmy and I get up early and drop Christopher off (he has to be there at 6:30am) and then we come back for the 9:45 service and Sunday School. Then we head over to Mom and Dad's--in one car! We're also saving on gas money! WAHOO!!

In other words the days are slow and long. But not too bad. I try to take Timmy outside to play in our yard (yay! I still get a thrill saying that!) but it's kind of cumbersome for me to get around these days and I trip over everything! (especially since there are like 50 gazillion sticks all over our yard......we don't think they did any maintenance to the yard AT ALL last year!) So, we don't go out too much. Which makes me feel like a bad mama because Timmy loves to be outside and dig in the dirt and collect leaves and watch airplanes. Thankfully Christopher's work schedule has changed so that he works from 6am until sometime in the afternoon, the latest is today--4pm. So, when he gets home he usually takes T out to play which is a good daddy-son time!

I'm still having a hard time grasping the whole...I'M GOING TO HAVE TWO KIDS....concept. As anxious as I am to have this baby out, I just can't imagine it not being just Christopher, Timmy and I. I guess it's one of those things that you don't really grasp until it actually happens.

So here I remain waiting and waiting some more!

haha! I wish! 37 weeks is the earliest my midwife would be comfortable with. I highly doubt I would deliver that early, but a girl can hope!

How is your back! I was so sorry to read you threw it out. I hope it is feeling better.

Well it's doing pretty good today, I'm quite happy with it today.
