Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

I DID IT!!!!

I did it. I am so excited I achieved all of my goals yesterday. I read to the girls and we all laughed and had a great time. I took my much needed nap and thank you all who have agreed that you have seen the rule that it is o.k. to be lazy when you are pregnant. And I went grocery shopping. We have a house full of food and I feel great.

My oldest daughter and I drove 45 minutes to go to Super Wal-mart. We loaded two carts full of food and toiletries and had a great time just the two of us. Now our drive home was little different. It was nine o'clock and I was tired so I stopped and got myself a cheeseburger and fries. I tried to get her to talk to me but she was just as tired as I was. We decided to look for landmarks that would let us know we were getting closer to home. That was fun because we would get all excited a bout a grain elevator, or someones green house but it really did help.
We finally arrived home and boy were we excited to see our driveway.

We then proceeded to unload the groceries and leave them in the mud room. She put all the refrigerator and freezer items away and everything else stayed on the floor for the night.
Well we got the shopping done and this morning all the groceries have been put away and everyone has a full tummy and we are off to a great day.

Thanks again all of you who have encouraged me and let me know that I don't have to be Supermom and it is o.k. to get tired. Have a great weekend everyone and I will see you next week.

Now that I think about I did sound like Tigger. but what a great complement. I would rather be Tigger than Eyoree.

Glad you are feeling 'chipper'. It definitely feels good to have food in the house. Ask my kids, they will tell you:)

Next time you have a 'late-night' grocery trip planned, call me. I may go with. I like to shop at Walmart, too. I'll keep you awake!!! :)

Still praying about 'it':)

I'm feeling bad that I don't even have a long drive to the grocery store and I haven't done the shopping for far too long. Having a house full of food sounds so kids say "there's nothing to eat," at every meal. I try to think of things they can eat according to what we have, and can't think of anything. :-( I'm not pregnant, but we've all had the flu around here, so I'll use that as my excuse! BTW, You have to be pregnant to take naps? I take naps and I'm not even pregnant!
