It's Another Wednesday!

To start off, I'm posting pictures of our new tile floors. Yay!!! We're really loving them, especially now that the temperature is on the rise. (111 degrees this week!)

They not only tore out all the Pergo in the kitchen and laid 18 inch tile, they also did the front entryway, by our back door, down the hall, and in the kids' bathroom. We're feeling pretty spoiled around here! :-)

(Photo by Brennan-- this was a Happy Day!)

And in pregnancy news, I'm feeling pretty typically "almost done." I have up days and down days, grumpy days and days with spurts of energy.

When I went to bed last night, I felt GREAT! I'd gotten a lot done, and it was nice to go to bed feeling like I accomplished something. I went to sleep by ten, and was planning on getting up early so I could get one or two things done outside before the temps went volcanic.

So much for well-laid plans! LOL! I didn't wake up until seven, and felt like I'd been run over by a truck. Weird! Oh, wait-- I'm nine months pregnant. It's all weird right now! *hee!*

Monday was my weekly midwife appointment, and it went well. I told Stephanie (the midwife) that I'd been really sleepy and wondered if my iron was okay. So she offered to gently stick my finger and run a quick test. The first results had such a high iron count, that she thought we ought to repeat it. We did, and it was the same! Woot! My blood pressure was also near-perfect. *beaming proudly*

It's funny-- too bad I can't take credit for being healthy! LOL! (Thank you, Mommie, for passing down your perfect blood pressure genes... *grin*)

Baby is looking good, even though he/she isn't as active as he/she used to be. There's not much room left in there...

In other news, Avalon turned 18 months old and attended Nursery for the first time. The experience was a rousing success, though she started out class time looking around at me and her leaders as if we'd all gone mad. (You mean, I'm now free during church to run around and play with toys?! Woah...)

Until next time...


  1. The house looks great! Wow, Avalon is so big. Last time I saw her was at the reunion and she was a wee baby then. Good luck with your final days of pregnancy.

  2. Thanks! :-)

    BTW, I loved looking at all your Yellowstone pictures. It sounds like you guys had a great adventure! :)


  3. Congratulations on the fantastic kitchen remodel! Just before our last baby was born, my husband tore up the (beyond disgusting!)kitchen carpet and put down vinyl. It was so nice not worrying about splashing the birthing pool water onto the floor during labor and delivery.

    So glad the pregnancy is going well. It won't be long now! I heard a new baby crying in the store yesterday and started to feel that familiar longing... Michael Ray is 9 months old now. It just goes too quickly! Maybe that was the Lord's plan to keep us desiring babies...

  4. Every time I see you have written a post, I wonder if you have had your baby. I hope it comes soon for you.

  5. When I first saw the pictures I thought, "Oh, she's nesting -- look how clean that is" then I read and thought, "even better -- brand new floors!"

    Good luck in the next few weeks!

  6. Thanks, everyone! I promise to keep y'all updated! ;-D
