doggie vacuum. It's so cute and it actually picks up some dirt!
Steve plays UNO with Callie and the kids. He was very patient!
As for life, the last couple of days have been busy and my internet has been down. The Lord spoke to me about my computer habits and challenged me to fast from the computer on Sundays. Oh my, I was surprised at how much I depend on my computer! The pull was unbelievable when things quieted down. I prayed more, read some Christian magazines, read to the kids and did my Bible study. It felt good to put my attentions on my Lord where they should be.
I am feeling lots of contractions. It is all good. I like knowing that my body is preparing itself for the birth. I am almost 5 weeks away from birth! Yeah!
Steve and I got to go on a date Saturday. Candy and Dennis watched the kids so we could go to the Fire Department Awards Banquet. It was relaxing and the food was very good. I just couldn't eat much of it. I had a bite of Steve's prime rib and man was it good!
Church was great on Sunday. Pastor Don told us what we were doing right as a church and was really encouraging. He said that the church is much more unified then when he first came. What a blessing to hear!
Pastor Steve should have started his Chemo yesterday. I hope all goes well for him and he has no adverse reactions to it.
It rained and rained today. The floor is caked with mud. I swept it twice today and finally gave up. Tomorrow, I'm going to have the kids clean it. They made the mess!
Steve is supposed to come home tonight. I'm hoping that we can watch "Against All Odds". It is all about the miracles that God has done for Isreal. Catherine recommended and I am very excited to see it.
Last night I got one and a half hour's sleep. I'm just praying that tonight will be better. I have Mom's Morning Out tomorrow (there will be a talk on submission) and then Tae Kwon Do. I will homeschool in the afternoon, so a nap is out.
I got a short massage today from the lady who is doing my prenatal massages. It felt really good. We talked more about the delivery and I am getting excited to try something new. I still need to break the news to Dr. Faherty that there will be one more person in the room. Steve isn't too sure about it, but I think he wants me to be as comfortable as possible. It's free, so I don't mind trying it at all. It can't hurt anything! When it's baby number six, you don't mind trying something new.
I'm getting excited to see all my friends at a baby shower this Sunday that my sis and stepmom are giving me. I haven't had a baby shower since my first baby. It will be fun to see everyone.
