...and "Texas" and "Arkansas" and "Missouri" We leave after Adam gets off work tonight
I don't know if it's pregnancy or just true American pride but I was a baby for all of the women's gymnastics sports. I cried when Jordyn Weiber did not make the all-around. I cried when the team won the gold medal. I cried when Gabby won gold. I will surely cry if Weiber wins gold in floor. I've also cried for some of the swimmers when they were emotional (oh and that Judo girl too). Also, Adam and I have been really cheering on the indoor volleyball teams. We yell and cheer at the TV. I don't know if my DVR can hold 8 hours of Olympics everyday for a week while we're gone.
I'm not a pagent mom but it's a slippery slope. I entered the kids in the state fair baby picture contest. Thanks Liz B for letting me enter the one of Regina painting. It may be a potential winner. They judge on personality and appeal. This year Jimmy is old enough to be in the cutest farmer contest. I bought him so authentic things here and there like wrangler official rodeo jeans and work boots. Sooo cute. Pictures to come later.
I've kind of dismissed the idea of going to Omaha for a week to learn to be a practitioner for Creighton Method NFP. Only because I don't know what to do with the kids for a week. I feel a pull on my heart though to try harder since the diocese is offering to sponsor the whole thing. Prayers would be apprciated.
You know what's REALLY annoying. Getting down to a size where you can start wearing some of those clothes you've missed and it looks mostly flattering but your belly looks like an area that needs work. And also knowing it will be all too soon those clothes won't fit again. So short lived. I found a shirt I should have got. "It said I'm not fat, I'm pregnant (and fat)." It's funny but I guess it's not really me in that I don't complain that I'm fat or really even say that to anyone. Not even myself. I know I'm overweight. Before I started working on it I was very uncomfortable, but I never let it affect my mood. I know I'm unique for that. It just is what it is. And I appreciate how good I've been feeling now, hope to continue to feel well, and will be able to pick up where I left off when I'm post partum.
Have you tried those Starbucks refreshers? I wouldn't have if some barista hadn't been standing in the heat giving out samples next to the drive through speaker. They are the perfect summer drink.
You must listen to my son auto rap "Spiderman" Please, I know it will change your day or make it more complete. Go listen here: Spiderman...is he green? No he's not. He is blue and red.
