Labor and Delivery - What else can go wrong?
Friday August 5th, I went to work. I was feeling pretty awful, but I'm never one to call in sick if I can avoid it. I was having contractions and a lot of back pain, but nothing 'regular.' I made it through my shift rather miserably. Went home a... Read more
Hopefully Last Update Before Baby!
So last week, at 38 weeks, I had my cervical check with OB. I was barely 1 cm dilated, 50% effaced, baby at station -2. Not bad. I was happy with that. Yesterday I had my 39 week check, hadn't felt much over the past week to signify an dilating,... Read more
Camping, Kiddos, Life
Well, at 37 weeks pregnant, I've been too fatigued to blog. Working 12 hour shifts (with some extra shifts thrown in there) is REALLY tiring, lol. (Not to mention ongoing daily migraines...especially bad the past few days.)
So, last weekend... Read more
Book Review: "Dorie: The Girl Nobody Loved."
"Dorie: The Girl Nobody Loved." - Doris Van Stone
5 out of 5 Stars.
This was a beautiful book; heartfelt and well-written. It is relatively short (155 pages) and super easy to read, but well worth it! It is a wonderful story of hope... Read more
Book Review: "Unanswered"
"Unanswered: Lasting Truth for Trending Questions" - Jeremiah Johnston
1.5 out of 5 stars.
So utterly disappointed with this book. When I saw this book (and accompanying study guide,) I was super excited. It seemed to fit me ... Read more
I HATE baby showers (and bridal showers, lol.) I had a few people who really wanted to throw me one, so I obliged, so long as it wasn't a "baby shower." We had a baby celebration yesterday. It was coed, just eating and visiting and NO awful bab... Read more
Weekend in Michigan
My family headed over to Michigan this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July with my Aunties (and Uncles.) Dad, Sis and niece Maddie went over Friday morning; I had to work Saturday morning, so we left Saturday afternoon. It is about a 5 hour dri... Read more

Camping and Upcomings!
So hubs and I went camping this past weekend for the last time (for a long time to come,) as just the two of us! We had stayed at this park in the past, but we had both come down with something and the weather was cold and rainy, so we ended up... Read more
32 weeks pregnant! Eek! Finished painting the nursery on Tuesday. I got impatient with hubby's busy schedule, so I put the crib together myself as well, lol. What can I say?? Nesting? lol. Curtains are on the way and the bookshelf is almost rea... Read more
Just a quick update of what's been going on!
I've still been working on my rock wall garden a TON. Those previous home-owners really made a mess of it. It is starting to look nice, but it has been a pain in the butt. (And back... hours and... Read more
Book Review - " Before Love Dies"
"Before Love Dies " - Larry J Russell
I'd call this a "basic guidebook to Christian relationships." It has some great info, but it also has a lot of common sense and fluff thrown in there. (Although, perhaps common sense to m... Read more
Friday afternoon we picked kiddo up from school, and headed straight for the campground. It's about a 2 hour drive, so by the time we got there and got everything set up, it was basically time to cook dinner, then s'mores, then bed.

I've been leaning towards a natural childbirth my whole adult life. (Yes, even when I thought there was no chance of conceiving, my daydreams of it included a natural birth.) I st... Read more

My friend runs a ministry in a near-by city. It is basically "Sunday School" (though on Wednesdays,) where she teaches unchurched kids from ROUGH homes and neighborhoods, about the love of Christ. Every year she takes the kids to a Christian Ad... Read more
