:) Today is the first day of bed rest that I ACTUALLY slept past 7:00!! And it was SOOOO nice.
I was exhausted after yesterday. Well, after yesterday evening anyway. HA! Clif and I got home from the grocery store (where he was so sweet and pushed me around in a wheel chair so I wouldn't have to walk... Dr M would have been so happy!)...and it was probably 80 degrees in our house. I wasn't happy about it #1 because I'm getting BIG, and I just can't handle the heat. And #2, we had people coming over.
We've been having issues with the AC the last week or so, but I just ignored it - thinking it was because I am getting big...and hot natured. I said something that made Clif look at the unit inside, and when he did... we found 3 inches of ice on EVERYTHING. :( So we had to turn off all AC, open doors...and stick it out while the ice melted, and while he cleaned dust from the vents. Needless to say...five hours later, my hubby had figured it all out...and within an hour of turning the AC back on...we both needed blankets :) Apparently it was just an issue with the filter. YAY!
Clif is off today, so I think we're going to make it a pretty lazy day until this evening...then things will get a little busy. ) But that's okay.
My parents are heading over around 4:00 this afternoon, for dad & Clif to finish up the floor in the babies second nursery :) SO excited to finally have this complete so that we can start getting furniture in place, AND start washing all the clothes that we have been given so far.
Things that I'm looking forward to this week:
Tonight :) Finishing up the babies nursery, and the cookout that we are going to have afterwards. Steaks on the grill, veggie stir fry...potatoes, and fresh corn on the cob. YUM!
Thursday :) It marks mine & Clif's four year wedding anniversary. Cannot believe that it's been four years since we said I DO.
Friday :) I am meeting up with my mom and niece to make cupcakes (pea pod cupcakes) Friday morning... and then when Clif gets up (he has to work Thursday night), we are going to get pedicures (he probably would kill me if he knew I was putting that on here), going to catch an early movie, and then eating at our favorite Japanese steakhouse.
SATURDAY :) My baby shower. SOOOOOO excited about it. Really!! There have been so many people that have already RSVP'd...and I'm looking forward to it more and more by the day. Not because of the gifts that I know we will get... but just getting to see people that I don't get to see very often...and for being able to use this pregnancy as a witness to those who aren't Christians. That might sound weird, but everyone that was invited to this shower are aware of the road that Clif and I have walked (and sometimes crawled) these last few years. And I think that just seeing how much God has blessed us since losing Lilly is a wonderful witness of His love.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week, and had an enjoyable holiday yesterday!!!
