Tomorrow begins week five of football season. Which means I have 6 weeks left in my pregnancy. That's how I keep up with it. After tomorrow we'll be down to 5 weeks, 6 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes. Seriously, though...the countdown is in full swing.
We had our first shower today. I was overwhelmed at how many people turned out. We are blessed with the sweetest family and friends. We received soooo many needed things. Until today we had a crib, a mattress, and some diapers. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by the floor full of gifts in the nursery now. The OCD in me wants to start putting away things and have it all put up by bedtime. But my swollen ankles say "sit a while in that recliner". I just looked over my pictures and decided they must be distorted because there's no way my face is that puffy. Everyone else, however, looks normal. Thank you to everyone. We appreciate everything.
In other news.....I SURVIVED HOMECOMING WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not sure that I've EVER had a busier week. I have a whole new perspective on things. Everything worked out, even though earlier in the week I was in panic mode thinking they would not. I told my principal on Thursday afternoon that I would be taking a personal "week" this week. Forget a personal day. I was kidding, although the thought of a week off sounds SO nice.
It's back to the doctor this week to see how things are progressing. She's still a very active baby girl. At times, I feel like she's going to kick out of there.
May your week be an easy, "go with the flow" kind of week. That's the kind I need.
