Today, I feel pretty good. It’s the first day in a long, long time that I do not have ANY plans at all. So, what do I plan to do? I do not plan to put on makeup or shower or go grocery shopping.
(regarding the makeup, I’m pretty much incapable of not applying makeup, so maybe I’ll put on just a little bit.)
I plan to do laundry all day long, light a fall candle, clean up here and there, take a nap, go to my parent’s house with the kids for dinner (Brian has class every Tuesday night) and eat a big, fat juicy apple. or two.
At some point this afternoon, we’ll get the results back from the OB’s office and then we will go from there.
I realize that no matter what the news is today, we will spend the rest of this pregnancy PRAYING AND HOPING. We know, too well, that no matter how well a pregnancy is going, at any point, anything can happen. So, whether we have a scary diagnosis or we go back to our high risk pregnancy as it is, we will take it day by day and focus on the little one growing rapidly inside of me so sweetly.
For now, though…I wait patiently and think about other things.
I think about the fluttering going on in my belly. I can’t wait for the kicks to get stronger. I can’t wait to share those kicks with my family. Last night Anna kissed my belly without even knowing that just the night before Noah kissed my belly. (a first time for both) They LOVE so much.
To help me pass the time (I never watch TV during the day, although if there ever was a day that I should, it would be today), I’ve been browsing through Etsy, not shopping because I can’t afford to, just browsing…which is fun, too.
I love this bird. Certain birds remind me of James & Jake. This one in particular is beautiful. I would put it in my bathroom, it would make me smile everyday.
This costume makes me laugh. I love it.
This poster makes me dream. I love the simplicity and the retro feel of this poster. Can’t you just see it in a nursery? (by the way, this entire shop is AWESOME.)
This wristlet makes me want to go on a date with my husband.
And this, well, I see it and I think YES! and also…I’ll try my hardest.
It’s all I can do. That and the laundry. I can do the laundry.
