Maybe God wishes to teach me a thousand new things, move me from being in a thousand different directions to just ONE, and show me a thousand reasons to BLESS his name. Maybe that is why He moved me 1,000 miles away.

Why I'm up at 4:20AM

It's been over 5 years since I've been through this and I forgot about the annoying late pregnancy things like "practice labor contractions" that are just uncomfortable enough to keep you awake, but not effective enough to get the job done.

Tomorrow is a full day with piano lessons for all three kids, Little Gym class, Figure Skating lesson and Hockey practice. I'll sneak a nap in there at some point....or perhaps I shouldn't as it seems that labor starts when you are most exausted and the house is at it's messiest. Tomorrow, then should be a good day, as I still have the sink full of dishes to be washed.

I'm way past that "oh you look so cute" pregnant stage, and the kids and I noticed that when we are out and about we get outright stares. I do look and walk like I should be on my way to the hospital. Jackson saw me carrying a load of laundry in an awkward position and said, "that is the only way you can do it now? Pretty soon if your turned sideways you wouldn't be able to fit through doorways." Chloe tries to protect me from such comments by glaring at him and informing him that it is so mean to say such things....but I think Jackson is impressed with my girth.

Instead of the date, maybe we should start taking bets on this baby's weight.

Praying this super-star comes soon.

Just make sure you enjoy every single second because it will be over way too soon and you will desparately miss the beautiful miracle of pregnancy.

heh heh

Put Roy on alert. I think today is the day. The messy house is the trigger. Yipee!
