Since last week Tuesday, it's felt like the longest week ever! It's just drug on and on. Fortunately it's Tuesday again and we did get a ton done over the week.
Last Tuesday was our second birthing class and it went really well! We went though all the phases of labor, coping skills for each phase, and watched a short birthing video. I never wanted to watch one of those, and although it was gross, I walked away thinking "That's not so bad. I can do that." Good thing since I'm already committed to having a baby.
Wednesday was a super rainy night and I just couldn't find the motivation to do much of anything but cook dinner. We had both worked late, it was just a rough day and my hips were just sore! Dave did the dishes, started laundry, and cleaned up a bit (what a great husband) while I read a little on the couch. We watched a movie when he was done, and called it a night.
Thursday we did a little more work. We cleaned, ran errands, and packed things up for Friday. We even set up water walls over our tomatoes - in the rain. It was a freezing, pain of a job, but I'm glad it's done. I've been worrying about our tomatoes freezing every night. We've had bad weather all week, so I've insisted on covering each plant at sundown with either a milk jug or a bucket. I also fixed the tension on my sewing machine and whipped out a baby bib to make sure it worked. Now I'm ready to start working on my quilt again so I can (hopefully) make my deadline to finish the top by July.
My brother Daniel received his endowments Friday night at the Mt. Timp temple, and we knew to make the session we would have to leave right after work Friday. Traffic wasn't as bad as usual, so we ended up being a half hour early. But better safe than late! It was great to be there for his important day and great to see the family in the temple! After we just spent the night in Highland, since my car needed a trip to the shop down there and I had a baby shower.
The shower went well! We had all kinds of tasty foods and played some fun games. It was mostly family, but we also had some friends from Michigan join us (the Poulsons and Moes). I was given so many cute and fun gifts at the shower. Now I'm trying to get everything sorted, washed and put away. I want to rearrange the nursery this weekend so we can start hanging up pictures, shelves and finalizing the placement of everything. It will just to be good to get that out of the way before I have too much on my plate (and am too exhausted).
