Peace and Quiet

Casey is at the church getting ready for Bible study tonight and Carter is napping, so things are kind of quiet around here. I'm just listening to a little Marvin Gaye since it is Valentine's day and everything.  Casey and I had a lovely dinner with Meagan and Heather last night at Outback Steakhouse.  I'm not too big on Valentine's Day, so we decided it would be fun to eat with some single ladies and we had a blast.  

Casey got me this beautiful necklace from James Avery and I just love it. He is so sweet and thoughtful. He didn't have many ideas, but he knows when in doubt go to James Avery. lol
I had taken some pictures of our Highland community, so I printed those and had them framed for him for his office and he loved them.  I also got him a love mug and some chocolate and a card believe it or not. I never get cards.  I'm just not that sentimental, but I did get one this time, so I was pretty happy with myself.  

I am really excited about Bible study tonight. We are going to have a great speaker and some wonderful music and I'm looking forward to worshipping with the Saints.  Hopefully, we can grab some dinner before I have to head in to work tonight. I wish that I didn't have to work on the weekends. I hate having to miss church because of sleep.  At least it's only once a month and I won't be working much longer because of the new little one on the way.

Wednesday At Our House

It has been a while since I have updated, but there really isn't a whole lot of exciting things going on in our lives right now. We are just plugging along trying to still get over this cold and take plenty of naps. Carter likes to take naps and that works out really well for me because I'm always very tired early in pregnancy.  I have enjoyed being home with little man this week, but I am also ready to work a little bit this weekend, so that is always good to be excited about going to work.  I just love the kids at work. They are so cool. They really teach me how blessed and fortunate I am because they all have so many problems and still they are so happy and content.  There are the occasional difficult kids that I think should just be given a good spanking but the majority of them are really cool.  

Poor Carter is having a tough time with these molars coming in. They are causing him a lot of pain and he has been pretty grumpy, but today seems to be a little bit better.  I'm just trying to get his appetite back up because he hasn't been eating much since his cold.  

So, I really wish that pregnancy was about half as long as it is. It seems like it goes by fast for everyone but me. lol...6 weeks and 4 days. Only 32 left to go. I don't count forty weeks because I will not be waiting that long. Induction at 39 weeks definitely. lol. Today I felt a tinge of nausea, so I'm thinking that this time is going to be different from last time. With Carter all I had was heartburn and fatness. hehehe. I'm hoping to not have either of those, but we will see.  I am determined to remain fit and in shape during this pregnancy. I will be swimming and walking when the weather gets better. I haven't gained any weight yet, so that is good.  I think that for the first pregnancy I must have eaten like I was going to be sacrificed at the end of the pregnancy, but not this time. 

So, American Idol was last night and it was interesting. I'm pretty glad that the judges are going to be able to pick who stays and goes ultimately. I think that America tends to pick their favorites and not who is actually the best sing/performer, but there were definitely some great singers last night.  That black guy that begged to be kept on the show cracked me up when he got kicked off. He was pretty funny. 

I wanted to ask everyone to pray for a man in our church. His name is Jimmy Durham and he has been diagnosed with cancer. He had a lymph node in his neck that had swollen up and he had it removed and they have now said that it is cancer. We don't know too much, but it appears that the prognosis is good.  I encourage everyone to go to their respective prayer meetings tonight because it is always a blessing for the body of Christ. We have not been going lately because of all the sickness, but Lord willing we will be there tonight. Everyone have a great day.
