Thinking out loud

Life has been a little weird lately.
I've thought of several little things to blog, but mostly they are so short, and by the time I get here, I forget! :-O So nothing has come of my time here yet.

We are actively in a moving process now. It has been just about forever (to me) that we've been talking about it, so sometimes it doesn't seem like it's really happening! So far we are only able to pack and move boxes of stuff we don't need for now, but pretty soon we'll be putting out the notice to all our friendly offers of help that it's time. Myself looking more and more like an over blown beach ball has been hidden under my shirt, I wont be much help with the moving, and at times I find it frustrating.

I had an OB appt on Monday, and waited the hour and a half for a four minute visit. ahhh I don't care much for that part, but I figure that we all go there so that the DR can be there to deliver our babies when it's time... I should cut a little slack when they have to be out delivering. It would be nice if they'd make it to ours this time ;0) We are 2 for 2; one of those was a prayed for MIA! Thank God! :-D
I think the whole thing would've been a little easier if there hadn't been so many siblings waiting too. The office is so crowded on a regular basis with expectant mommas and other patients, but this time there were 5 different families with their older children there... a total of 12 kids, ranging in age and temperaments!
I have found myself easily frustrated with either other people's kids or their parenting skills lately... and one family there was really hard to listen to! I found my tongue was hurting after the first 15 minutes and we waited an hour and a half together.

The appt went well, as usual. Measuring fine, actually 2 centimeters smaller than with Aliyah, yet I weigh as much now (with 7 weeks to go) as I did at her delivery! I wondered where it all went to, but then my....ummmm... counter balance has been growing well! ;0) Heart beat was going fine and she even did a half twist for the Dr to see.... and then readjust the Doppler. I was literally out of there in 4 minutes, with making the next appt! I felt worst for my kiddos and their Auntie and Uncle (who had to wait their dinner) though from the reports things there had gone well.

I am still finding some strange little nesting things to do...like washing the folding chair upholstery.... where some of these things come from I don't quite know. My house doesn't necessarily look very "cleaned" with stacks of empty boxes waiting to be packed (they take up less space empty, so we wait to pack them until we are ready to move them) and some disorganized things that no longer have their home.... but at least I'm not being nagged in the night by the thought that the folding chairs are dirty! :-S LOL

Tuesday I had had low blood sugar, to the point hubby almost had to stay home; and it was decided that I needed to take a nap leaving Ysa in charge and having a movie to help keep them occupied. So when I woke up to an inch of water on the bathroom floor, courtesy of Aliyah overflowing the sink until the entire bathroom floor was an inch deep... I thought, yeah, that was a brilliant idea. It took 45 minutes to vacuum it all up and then I still had to wash out the rug and towels (a feeble attempt at soaking it up) to hang them up to dry. I was not a happy momma, but as I was wiping around the toilet, I thought.... I guess it was time to scrub the floor again. **sigh** Thanks Lord for giving me the motivation to do this job.... and please protect my kids!
It was a wonderful reminder of how I can't do this on my own strength! By my self I am completely incapable, and even totally unwilling at times, but I can do all things through Him who strengthens me! and who will equip me to do His will. :-D

Hebrews 13: 20-21
20 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep,
21 equip you with everything good for doing his will,and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
