my week so far...

Sunday: I had planned on watching conference on the internet with Matt, but I got called to the hospital to take photos. This sweet baby reminded me of Olivia. I just kept staring at him with all of his hair. Just a beautiful baby. I got home in time for the 2nd session of Conference, but it wasn't working over the internet. We went to my parents to hang out the rest of the day and eat their food. Came home and took bath.

Monday: I woke up feeling great. Ate some toast and then took Brinley to school. 5 minutes after walking through the door, I threw up...nice. It ruined my whole day and I didn't get much done. I felt like poop. Later that night, I had a belly/boob cast done. It was interesting and messy. I 'm not sure yet what i am going to do with it, but HOLY CRAP! I have a large belly. Then, I took a bath.

Tuesday: I was busy running errands all over the place, paying bills, yada, yada, yada. There was a MISS meeting that night and 6 new families. I didn't get home until 10. The meeting was great and a few of the new families I had done photos for. I hope they felt that the meeting helped them. You learn something new every time you go. On your journey through life, your grief changes, you think of what your child would be doing now, the milestones of year 1 and 2 and so on. As you talk to the parents of all the beautiful children who have passed, you remember your own experiences. I cried at the meeting, (I think i cry at every meeting) it was good for me.

Wednesday: I sat for 2 1/2 hours getting new tires and brake pads put Luckily, I took a book and I finished it...Lisa, I am out of books to read. I am without a debit card for a week and realized how many place don't take a check anymore or won't let you get cash back...IT SUCKS! I finally got around to working on the CricKet stores finances and have a ways to go before I'm done...wait, it's never done. Matt was happy that I actually made dinner too. I've been slacking a bit lately. I guess he doesn't feel that throwing a potato in the microwave constitutes as a meal.
Brinley and I took a bath.

Thursday (today): So far, so good. I have to work at the CricKet store today, just me and Ami. Matt has a Corporate meeting. It should be an interesting few hours. Although, it is ALWAYS interesting when you work downtown. Lots of crazies and wierdos and people high on whatever. I could start a blog on Matt's stories of what people come into the store...good times. I am pretty sure a bath is on the schedule too.

Friday: I have a doctors appointment in the morning and then we are going to pick pumpkins at Green Bluff and then back in time for my non-stress test and ultrasound. Busy, busy day.

My YOUNG brother and his wife (no kids yet) are here visiting and I'm remembering fondly a less-busy life before errands, appointments, and rushing around! Some weeks are crazier than others!. . . the belly cast sounds cool. . . and tell Matt that a potato in the microwave makes for a mighty fine dinner! Nuked potato-licious!. . . 33 days to go? Are you kidding me? Seems like forever. :)

Busy week. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help. I would be happy to come over once a week and help you clean if you would like. Just let me know.

Wow...and I thought I was busy! Glad you get to realx in the bath after a long day. It's a once a month luxury for me.

The belly cast sounds fun! Hang in there!
