No time!

I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. Running around looking for my watch, exclaiming the whole time that I'll be late. I'll be 31 weeks pregnant on Wednesday and I'm starting to approach the official "freak out" stage that I always go through. The questions start flying and I become unreasonable until things are done my way and right now. I wonder how in the heck I got myself into this situation and then go "oh yeah...". I feel like week 40 will never come and I'll be pregnant forever and then I become sad because I think I'll never be able to bend over like I used to, or lay on my stomach. You know, all the things that you really miss doing when you're pregnant.

Our kitchen is *thisclose* to being done. We got our garden started. We're just waiting for Mother Nature to help us out and stop raining (please! Enough already!) and warm up a little. The 50 degree temps are not what I enjoy for May. That way we can actually, you know, finish planting our garden. Bon had last week off and worked on a lot of things and we also had a lot of family time, which was great. He's really a ton of fun when he's not stressed out. I enjoy it! :)

Oh and some other big news....We finally are the proud owners of a MINIVAN!!!! I was seriously starting to freak out about this one. I mean, we own a Geo Metro. Yeah...that's not going to work with three kids. So I actually found this van on Ebay and they lived about 20 inutes from here and were selling it locally too. We looked it over and test drove it, with the aide of my father-in-law, and decided that it was a really good deal and we are very happy with it!

Congratulations on the van! LOL at the thought of fitting all those kids in a Metro. Yikes.

I know just how you feel--when I hit 30 weeks I suddenly think I'm running out of time to get ready. So I get everything set up and by the time the baby is born, the bassinet sheet must be changed before baby even sleeps on it because it got dusty. Heh.

So glad to see an update Becky ;-)
I'm glad to hear that you are freaking out a bit about getting close to your due date. I know I'm going crazy trying to make sure everything is ready.
Congrats again on the van!

I hear ya! I feel the same way when I read the pregnancy test for the first time, just as I feel when I'm weeks away from giving birth and again when I'm holding my brand new baby in my arms! lol

YAY on the van!

Congrats on your van! Glad to see things are going well for you! Yuck on the last 10 weeks of pregnancy. I hate that not being able to sleep on my stomach thing.
