This and That


The shower was wonderful! I spent the entire day nearly in tears over the fact that a) we got to have a shower and b) the generosity of our friends. My three friends who threw me the shower really went all out and I am so grateful to them for all of their hard work. There was a ton of food and we opened gifts when the Packer's game came on so that people could choose. Surprisingly, a lot of people watched the gift opening. That was always the part that was hardest for me. We got a lot of great stuff and really only have a few more things to get before we're all set. It was a wonderful, wonderful day.


The painters finished and the house looks really great. We went on an IKEA death march last night to get a new entertainment center and some storage cabinets. When we finally got our stuff it was already 9pm and by the time we managed to barely squeeze everything we got into our vehicle it was already 9:30. Once we get that put together, we can move the stuff out of the baby's room and rip up the carpet, etc... M is going on a ski trip in late January/early February and when he gets back I will be 36 weeks, so we're working against the clock. The countdown will begin! Luckily, this weekend is a holiday weekend, so we will have some extra time to work on everything.


I am once again afraid to see what the scale will say at my next Dr.'s appointment. I haven't been pigging out every night, but I haven't been as strict with my diet, either. I can really feel the slowdown beginning as I enter my 8th month. I feel like gravity is winning the battle, but doesn't it always?

Yay for showers! Mine is next weekend and I can't wait. The 2 friends that are hostessing it have been a huge support for me during IF and want to make it extra special. I have a hard time opening gifts in front of people, too.

The dreaded scale!! Hang in there only a few more weeks and I'm sure the weight will come off fine.
