I did something crazy that’s just going to throw everything off!
Ok, not really. I missed last week’s update and rather than waiting another week and having a four week gap, I decided to do a 35 week update.
I know that’s not all that exciting or anything. Can you tell I’m a little wanting of some excitement in my life right now? I mean, clearly we don’t have enough going on lately.
But really, I’ve spent the past few days in bed or on the couch because I over-strained myself unpacking and lifting boxes I shouldn’t have lifted. I won’t go into details as to exactly what I hurt, but lets just say, I can’t walk, stand, or sit very comfortably. If you’ve ever been pregnant (or if you’re in your 80s), I’m sure that’s more than enough information to figure out what I’m talking about.
So, needless to say, this week has taken the “beached whale” feeling to a whole new level. I’m finally up and about again, though moving very slowly and growing weary of the extra weight I’m carrying. That doesn’t mean I’m ready to go into labor or anything. Just ready to be carried around everywhere by my own personal squad of firemen 😉
Since I haven’t spent much time outside this week and today is a beautiful day, I wanted to take these photos in our new backyard. And of course thought climbing a tree might be a good idea. Am I joking? What do you think? 🙂 Anyway, I think Hubby did a really good job with the manual setting on our SLR!
Oh, and in other news… I celebrated a birthday a week ago and was surprised, on that day, with a shower which included some very special women in my life and was thrown by my mom and my amazing friend Diana. I feel very loved and blessed to have such special people in my life. Thank you! Here are a few (not all) pictures from that day, which I hijacked from my parents:
