Forgive me if this gets long. I'll start with: I'm 12 weeks now!!! I had my lovely paps today at the OB and got to hear the baby's heart. I am scheduled with my doctor appts until 28 weeks, when at that time, the appts will go to 2-3x/week, if not before that. My C-section is scheduled for August 27th, the feast of St Monica! They scheduled me in the main operating room. (not in the baby unit) Because it's my 5th C-section and they want to be prepared in case I have problems with my blatter (I guess they can cut through my bladder if it's too close to my scar tissue) They also have to be ready if I hemorrhage, they might need to do a hysterectomy. Nice, huh? Now, I have to go and pray and calm down. Everything will be fine. God already knows what will happen. He is already there.
The above picture is where this particular toy always is after being out for 5 minutes. On top of the fridge. I love this toy, because it's such a classic toy, but I also hate it, because they all get sooooo wild with it!
This is our Lenten Sacrifice and Good Deed Jar! We fill it up during lent, every day I notice all the good things they do, and they notice too, and every time they sacrifice something, they get to put in a bean. We are not stingy with the beans, it takes a lot to get it even half full! They have been doing nice things all morning! Somehow, on Easter Sunday, the dry beans are replaced with jelly beans!!!
I have been thinking a lot about a particular friend, named Kerry, (she doesn't read my blog), in fact she has completely severed ties with me! I hurt her over a year and a half ago, by being my "too blunt" self and I'm afraid she just won't forgive me. It hurts so. I love her and think about her every day and miss our friendship. Her birthday is this month and I don't know what to do, I called her last year on her birthday and apologized and we talked and I thought it was all good, but have not heard anything from her since. I think I will just send a card to let her know I'm still thinking and praying for her.
Another old toy, made new by a new toddler! Babycakes learned how to look through this treasure today and loved it! Of course, it is lying in the hallway right now, she's already forgotten about it. Jedi, used this so much when he was little, it was really fun! (Jedi will be 9 in 8 days!)
Christine, what is wrong with black patent shoes? My girls love them, even Ballerina Rosie, who's 6 1/2!! I think she looks great in them! Sorry, I disagree with you about the no black patent shoes after age 5! Maybe 10? :)
The above picture is a picture of a beautiful gift I received in the mail from Regan, it is her lovely Love bird!! I look out my kitchen window and think of her in sunny California as I wash dishes and long for warm weather here!
The below picture is a picture of the books JOT sent me! She sent the Ann Coulter book for my husband, just because I left a comment on one of her posts saying he loves her books, and the other books were just a surprise for me!!! Aren't these women great?
These are Perler Beads and my kids love doing them, all of them! They make treasures all the time! Go here for ideas!
Thanks for going on this long journey today with me, whew!! Lots off my mind!
