T Minus 7 Days

Since it's so late when I'm posting this, it'll probably actually be tomorrow when you read it.  And that will mean we only have 6 days to go.  YAY!!!

Today was one of the best days.  We all 3 slept in, and just hung out in the house during the morning.  At 1pm, I had an appointment for a massage, facial, and pedicure.  I absolutely loved it.  It was wonderful, and just what I needed.  Last night I was having a lot of contractions, back pain, and what not at pretty regular intervals.  They stopped after a few hours, but by then I was so keyed up that I didn't sleep well. After some pharmaceutical intervention I got a few hours of sleep, and was able to sleep late this morning.  However, I was just feeling kinda.....blah, this morning.  I'm not sure if it was the excitement of the night before, the strange sleep pattern that I had, or the effects of the pharmaceuticals.  Either way, I was just in a funk, and didn't really want to do anything.  After my girly appointment I felt great.  I felt like a girl again(and not like a super preggo walrus).  That was the nicest way to get out of a funk.

This evening the boys and I headed to my grandparents house to hang out.  We had the most amazing potato salad I've ever eaten in my entire life.  I'm not a huge fan of the overly mustard potato salad, and Grandaddy did not disappoint.  It was perfect, dry(that's a good thing), sweet, and with the right amount of onions.  It was so good that I ate that over dessert.  After dinner my Grandmother and I headed out to do a smidgen of shopping for me.  I needed some new PJ pants for the hospital stay.  I also needed an outfit for Johanna's funeral if the Lord takes her quickly(I have absolutely nothing that will fit for fall/winter).  If He leaves her with us for a little while, then I have an outfit for her dedication.  Either way I'm prepared(you know, something new and different for me).

Tomorrow is another lazy day, and I'm so excited.  I do have a wedding to go to at 4pm, but I have bowed out of the reception so that shouldn't take long.  After that the in-'rents(Chad's parents), BIL, and SILs are coming over for dinner.  It's OK, Chad's doing ALL of the cooking.  He cleaned the house today, so I didn't have to do anything with that either.  I'm sure we'll have a great time, and I'm excited that I don't have to do anything to get ready for it.  Thanks babe!! 

Only 7(or 6 depending on when you're reading) more days to go.  I'm so excited to meet my little girl, and see what the Lord has in store for her.  It should be interesting to say the least.
