Don't pray for me

Yesterday I freaked out a little lot over on the blog's fb page because my midwife came and recommended, based on something she felt which has yet to be identified, that I go in for that second ultrasound after all.

I got all selfishy and demanded that people pray for a the scheduling office to call rightthisverysecond and guess what?  It worked.  They DID call rightthatverysecond, which has never happened in the past.  I was so grateful.  So, so grateful.  And then I got to thinking about all the struggles that people have endured this Lent.  All the real, awful, heartbreaking struggles that make your heart race just to think about, and I felt really very petty.

Splurge vs. Steal : skin care

I like to tell myself that despite the fact that majority of the girly products (not to be confused with feminine products, because ew) I use on the regular are purchased from the grocery store, that I'm still an excellent real world judge of goodosity vs. badosity because I'm allergic to wasting money.  But the truth is probably that I just have too many opinions and my own blog that lets me talk about whatever I want.  Proceed with those delusions of grandeur, dweej.

Let's do some more splurge vs. steal then, shall we?  We shall.

Dishwasher, belly device, a winner and more (7qt)

(1)
So I was feeling proud of myself (can you hear the ominous music playing in the background?) a few minutes ago.  We'd just wrapped up a surprisingly successful catfish nugget dinner (which Cecilia announced was "so much better than LAST night's gross food..."  Um, thanks?), the non-outside toys had been brought in from outside AND the dishwasher was loaded and ready to go.

So I happily skipped over to this here computer (when I say "skipped", I of course mean "waddle" because ginormous, gravity defying belly) and was like "I can do my quick takes and continue being productive and it'll be great!"

A spring break daybook

outside my window

It's raining right now.  We've finished dinner and Tommy has instructed me to enjoy a little quiet while he plays a video game with Paul gets the little ones ready for bed.  It's taken me a long time to even start this post though because I could watch the water drip from the bottom of the downspouts for hours.  If there is anything more calming for me, I'm not sure what it is.  So maybe I will.  Just sit, with my feet up, and watch.

No news is good news!

My midwife was able to squeeze me in after all today. Oh happy day!

I called her in a little bit of a tizzy this morning because of course I was scouring the internet last night discovering all the horrible things that can be associated with polyhydramnios.  Big baby I can handle, malpositioned baby I can handle, multiple babies I can handle, but a problem with baby...well, God and doctors will have to handle that.  And STAT.
