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.

Psalm 126:5-6

Just Rambling

O.k. my ticker is off by one day. I really have 8 days left until my due date but I am too lazy to fix it.

So yesterday was absolutely beautiful here, the sun was shining, it was warm outside, and snow was melting very quickly. I decided we needed to go and do something. So we went and spent the whole day at the zoo. We didn't get home until 7:45 last night, and mommy was wiped out. I thought spending the day at the zoo walking around might help get a few contractions going, but it didn't. All it did was make me a very sore and tired momma, but the kids had fun so I guess that made it worth it.

My back and legs were so sore when I got home I could hardly walk and my older children thought that was so funny. When I finally got to sleep last night I slept like a baby and if felt so good. I have decided the baby will probably not be coming for a while so for now I will just sit and wait. Daddy really wants baby to come this weekend so he can have some time off from work. How nice is that hurry up and have the baby I need a vacation. I think he will be back to work on Monday unless we are pleasantly surprised.

Oh, it won't be long...can't wait to see pictures of that wee miracle. Rest up and take care of yourself (easy to say to a mommy of many, huh? Ha. I'm with you).

Pat that tummy for me...praying for you, Susan!
