Picked up another book that will help with my nightly meditation. "When Jesus Sleeps" by Luis M. Martinez is perfect for me now. I definately have moments at this stage of the pregnancy when I think Jesus is asleep in my boat in the midst of the storm all around. "Why are you sleeping at a time like this?" Well, this book is helping me meditate on why.
I've been thinking & praying a lot for my husband, Paul. He has been busy working on putting together his application for a promotion to professorship at the Chiro. college. I want him to be at peace. It's too much to have both of us not sleeping at night!
I decided to host a party for the older girls this weekend. I want them to have one last "hurrah" with their friends before the baby is born. Interestingly, one of the girls also got an invitation for a birthday party next Saturday, and the boys have an invitation to a birthday party on the 25th! How cool is that? Last "hurrahs" for everybody before the baby is born...check!
I'm getting a new stroller system! After all this time, I've never had a "new" stroller. I've always shopped garage sales, thrift stores, Craig's List, but I've never broken down & bought a new travel system. We did buy a new double stroller years ago, but my infant car seats have never matched any of the strollers they've been paired with. I saw this ad at Babies R Us so Paul will be going out shopping during the girls' party tomorrow night to pick up the new rig!
I'm so thankful for Lysol wipes! As I was starting this 7th take, Molly ran into the bathroom and barely made it! Looks like she has a stomach bug...so who knows if that party I mentioned in Take 5 will actually come to fruition. I think I'd better get off now & phone the moms so they can brace the invitees for a cancellation.:( Bummer!
