3rd Trimester?!?!

It's been a while since I posted... sorry for my slacker tendencies :)

Today (or yesterday, depending on who you ask) I am officially in the 3rd Trimester. This is strange for numerous reasons... mainly because I in no way feel like I'm ready to have a baby. I know that this is "normal", but I just feel like I should be more prepared. Oh well... I'm doing lots of research and working in the nursery at church, which I figure is about all I can do. I can't practice on my own kid until I have one, haha! Although I somewhat feel sorry for the first kid... all the mistakes are made on them.

Anyways, here's a picture from last night:

In the past week I have had 2 people say "when are you due?" and when I say "May" they say "is it twins?" Here's a tip for all you non-pregnant people: NEVER say that to a pregnant person. The only thing you need to say to a pregnant lady is "you look awesome!" I'm 5 feet tall. There's no where else for the baby to go... short torso and all :)

Anyways. Chuck and I are getting lots done on the nursery. Last weekend we were basically snowed in so we worked in there most of the day. It's looking like this weekend will be the same way... it was supposed to rain today but the temperature dropped and it's definitely snowing. As much as I love snow, I'm a little sick of it because the state of VA apparently only owns 2 plows and it takes 4 days for the side roads to be cleared. Normally, I wouldn't mind so much but I have horrible balance and can't walk the dogs when there's ice out. And the dogs are MUCH better behaved when they get exercised. And it's good for me too... supposedly exercise makes delivery easier. We'll just have to see about that ;)

Next week our church's life groups are starting and Chuck and I are hosting one at our house. We're not the leaders, just donating our home :) I'm excited. I think it'll help motivate me to keep the house clean! I get really discouraged when I realize we've been in this house 7 months and we still don't have everything unpacked, but I've realized that beating up on myself does absolutely no good, so I try to just keep trudging on.

That's all for now!

Ah! I love it! I'm glad I get to stalk you in multiple areas! Although I wish I could get to this at work...that'd make work more interesting! You look great; don't worry about those nit-wits that don't have tact! And when you get frustrated about unpacking or cleaning, just remember those are Earthly goals/standards! God doesn't care if you unpack or clean! God cares that you love! Give the belly monster a loving rub for me!
