stream of consciousness…

I have little things to share, but they’re probably not going to be terribly interesting or well written. Oh well. If you have literary standards, stop reading now. =)

We had a good weekend overall. By the time I hit Friday evening, I was so tired and sore and weary of my cranky boys that I didn’t know how I was going to do anything other than sit on the sofa and stare into space all weekend.

This stage of the pregnancy has been a good bit harder than it was with Evan. I have more muscle pain and soreness, and sitting is uncomfortable a lot of times. The baby dropped more on Saturday, and he is so low that I can’t wear anything but dresses comfortably. I have some amount of trouble standing, walking, and basically getting around right now.

David saw my patheticness and started cleaning. =) Yep, he changed and washed the boy’s sheets and decided that our bathrooms needed cleaning. He said that my state made him think I could actually go into labor this time, so he thought we’d better be prepared. =)

I made myself make the chicken curry for the freezer that I’d planned on. We went to Marbles on Friday night for their once a month evening play time. The newborn clothes are now washed, though I can’t figure out how to sit on the floor to fold them.

Church was great on Sunday… really refreshing. And on Sunday night, we got to go out on a date. Dinner and a movie! David had been dying to see the last Harry Potter movie in the theater, and he got his wish.

I have been praying a lot about my stress and attitude with Seth and Evan. They’ve both been fussy and on edge, and I know I’ve contributed to that a lot. This morning, I decided to be all silly and goofy and read them extra books. And this has been the best day we’ve had together in about 2 weeks. I want so badly to enjoy our last 10 days as a family of 4.

Oh, Evan seems to have come down with a summer cold. Please pray that the rest of us don’t get it….

Prayin' for ya, hon! I understand about the attitudes and feeling like you have contributed to their behavior....we are currently in that same stage. Different kind of changes here, though. :) We are cycling through our summer colds here too. Elise and I are dealing with it right now. Hope yours doesn't make the rounds like ours did. 10 Days!? I can't believe it...I am sure it is not that unbelieveable for you! Praying!
