Scrambling to get presents..... mailed out.


(Last years Christmas card...I will not be seen in this years, sorry to disappoint)
Although we have been festive for quite sometime(day after Thanksgiving) I am just now being HIT with the fact that Christmas is really only 1 week away. I have had my shopping done for a while now knowing that the longer I waited the fatter I'd get, and the tougher fitting through crowded aisles might become. So even though the shopping has been done, I have officially 7 days to get my Christmas cards out or, heck I may just as well wait till our new family member arrives and send out a Christmas/Happy New Year/Baby Announcement Card thing. I also need to brave the dreaded crowded post office with two freakishly wild children and an excessively large abdomen while running on little to no sleep... I told the doctor yesterday that my favorite part of being prego is the three day break I get when I check into the hospital. Thank heaven for nurses that stay up all night want to hold your baby and love changing diapers and for epidurals and beds that adjust and meals I don't have to cook etc etc.

I wish my nurses were like that. mine just want to wake me up as soon as I get the baby to sleep and then wake her up too to check her b.p. or something of that nature. I was out of there in 24 hours so I could finally get some sleep.

Man, moms sure work hard! I really respect all that you do for your kids, especially in spite of the fact that you are pregnant. Keep up the good work! :)

I'm with you on that! I am feeling so big right now I can't bend over. I also opted not to take a picture for our Christmas card. I used one we took earlier this year. I hope you are feeling okay. I am hoping that I have my baby really close to you. I am pretty excited about not being prego anymore.
Hey, can I get your e-mail address so I can add you to my blog? I just made it private recently. I love checking out your blog it is so dang cute! You always have the cutest pictures. I need to find out how you put those scrapbook pics up.
