The good, the bad, and the tired!

There are so many days I wish I could write on here and get my thoughts out. It truly helps me relax and reflect. But there is only so much a pregnant lady can do in a day. Once school has let out I'm 85% spent. Driving home, doing the dinner thing, and all the other stuff that has made my life so busy lately = 0% of me being able to write, relax, and reflect. That is the bad I'm referring to in title today. I so wish I could have a voice recorder that would type this as I was showering or driving- not gross you out with the shower part, but I get so many thoughts while showering. I'm weird I know. It's the same way in the car. I remember so many things in the car, but as soon as I set out of the car my memory fails me. Goofy thing. Does that ever happen to anyone else?

Life has been busy. I thought it was busy in September with going back to work and then October was worse!! Prayer and a wonderful husband were the only way I made it out alive! I had something to do 3 or more nights a week after work and every weekend was filled with something or other. That played a toll on me and my energy level. By the end of the month I felt like death.

One weekend were blessed and went to Matt's sisters wedding in Tennessee. Which was so beautiful and I loved spending time with his family. But someone there gave me yucky germs and I got sick with a virus. The only time I've been sick during pregnancy and it sucked. Then once I got my energy back I had to clean the house top to bottom- no not nesting, but I had my baby shower at my house. I don't suggest this to anyone, unless your house is bigger and you have lots of "time off" to clean. This is the tired I was talking about in my title.

My mom and sister came down for the shower. They were here for a long weekend and it was so nice to have them here. Loved it!! They took care of a lot of the clean up after the shower, but I still had more once they left. And Lord knows after getting all the gifts from shower and things we bought ourselves- the organizer in me came out full force!! Spent the better part of the weekend after the shower just organizing, returning things for stuff we needed, and sitting in the glider dreaming about my little girl. I can't wait to meet her face to face!

Also, super excited to find out I'm going to be an aunt in June!!!! So excited for my sister and her husband. Lauren is going to have a cousin who will be in the same grade and only 6 months younger, so when they get together they'll be able to relate and play with each other. This is the good I referred to in my title.

Sorry for the ramble that this entry is, but just so much going on and not enough time to put it all in here. I can't wait until life slows down- it is going to do that right? All I know is that as I look back at the month of October, God is great and He blessed me daily to handle what was on my plate. He guides me through my days and for that I'm so grateful!
