Is it time yet?

These last weeks of waiting are just plain draining. Pretty much no matter what I do, Im sore and uncomfortable. The trick is trying not to complain all the time as you are inclined to do.

It really doesnt matter much if I do cleaning or rest, my body is just sore lol! So I try to do a bit of both in anticipation of the babe arriving.

Todays tasks include digging out our storage room. We moved in a utility shelf this weekend to hold our larder from our trip to Sams Club. In reality that meant a whole lot of stuff got displaced and well, it really wasnt all that well organized anyway. Add to the fact we had frigid 35 degree temps this morning and we have a mess from digging for warmer coats. So I have been working on that on and off this morning. Unfortunely my motivation doesnt equal the energy and what my body is capable at this late stage. So it means frequent breaks to rest.

Also trying to find a bottom in the laundry pile, i fear it doesnt exist.

I find Im a bit more motivated since hubby thinks baby girl will arrive this week. I would be really happy if she does. Anything has to be easier than this! The hardest part I think is carrying all 32 lbs of Gideon. Hes only 18 months old and still wants to be held at times or carried and well with his size(height and weight both) hes heavy!

God is good ... all the time!
