~ Nothing New
Well, I must say, this week hasnít been very eventful. But I suppose I should be thankful for that. I did manage to gather up the energy to attempt the re-upholstering project I was talking about last week. Jeremy watched while I fumbled through the first chair, and thankfully he stepped in to finish the project for me. I was so grateful, and he did such an amazing job! Now my dining room set looks brand new, and I couldnít be happier. I guess motivation won over exhaustion because Sierra's duvet cover got finished too. Now if only I could find a new comforter for our bed . . .
We successfully made it through another week of dance classes, and I am happy to announce that Makenna still loves it! It's so much fun watching both of the girls up on stage. I can't believe how fast they are growing up. It was a little strange, however, to be listening to Christmas music on a ninety degree day (they are already preparing for the Christmas Recital).
I worked for a few hours at my mother-in-law's office yesterday. Once a month they have an all staff meeting and need someone to come in to cover phones and such. It's an opportunity to make a few extra dollars and a good excuse to get "dressed up." It also reminds me just how blessed I am to be able to stay at home with my little sugarplums.
We are headed to the library this morning. There is a really nice playground there, and I thought we might all enjoy taking advantage of this beautiful day. It looks as though the rain starts tomorrow, and once it starts here in the Pacific Northwest, there's no stopping it until late next spring!
I am feeling the baby's movement more and more, and am so thankful for that. I drive myself crazy with all of the "what ifs" the first several months of pregnancy. Especially after such an event-filled pregnancy with Makenna, it's as if I'm just waiting for something bad to happen this time around. I go in for my ultrasound tomorrow, and debated whether or not to submit a late journal entry as I am anxious to post some sort of news. But I think I'll leave you hanging one more week. Seeing our precious little pumpkin will be so exciting' I cant wait! And hopefully my mind will be put at ease once I can see a healthy little baby on the screen.
Until next week . . . blessings!
