Well, the title of this entry is decisions. My body has made one decision for me and that is it's time to take some time off my weekend cleaning job. I totally pulled a muscle this weekend moving bar stools and could barely walk yesterday. Today is better but still really sore.
Another decision is that I am going to have my tubes tied after this baby. It has nothing to do with space, finances, or abilities but the fact that my body has been put through enough. Seven children in 13 years is a lot to ask of a body and mine is giving me little warning signs that enough is enough so I better listen if I want to be around for my kids and grandkids! The hospital I deliver at doesn't do tubals so it won't happen right away but hopefully soon after I recover from delivery.
Turkey day was nice. We went to my brother and his girlfriend's house. They made way too much food and we had about three meals worth of leftovers to take home! Gotta love turkey day leftovers! Then on Saturday night we went to Craig's dad's 70th birthday. The kids enjoyed seeing everyone again; it's been awhile.
It's hard to believe it's coming up on a year since Alex was born. It seems like so much longer and so much shorter at the same time. I still have a lot to process and work through surrounding the whole thing. I think Nathan's birth will stir a lot of that up. I worry about that.
I'm really uncomfortable lately. I'm really ready to have a healthy baby! Obviously we still have a few more weeks before that can happen but it's getting closer!
