Two) We ventured over to a local eye-wear store, which promises to be fast with your new specs. Last time I went there I know it took them at least a week to get me my new eyegear. They run this special where you get 2 pairs for $60 with the exam, yadayada.... I went in at 9:30 with Bernadette and had my new glasses on by noon. And, as opposed to the last time I went there, I actually really like my glasses this time.
|Those are not the glasses I purchased. I liked them, but they fit better on Bernadette's head than mine.|
Three) Now I can go ahead and have this baby any time, since I have cute glasses to wear in all my hospital room pictures. #Notvainatall.
Four) Speaking of having this baby, while at dinner with some friends last night, I got to talking to the wife/mom about when she went into labor with her second baby, and the heavens opened with shining new hope for me as we talked: She had him at 35 weeks, everything was fine, he was totally healthy, and so was she. That would mean I could be DONE being pregnant by next week. And a tear of joy slowly rolls down my cheek. Just the fact that this is a possibility fills my heart with laughter and joy of the merriest kind.
**Also, said friends fed us delicious pizza and brownies-- neither of which I had to make myself-- new favorite friends.
Five) So I am 34 weeks along and managed to snap a spectacularly blurry picture with photobooth since my camera is currently dead- you get the idea:
|with new glasses and my shiny new jorts|
Six) Today is the feast day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Naturally, this has left me toying with the idea of a trip to our favorite grocery store/cafe for the special coffee and donuts. Because this is most certainly what Christ wants us to take from the cross- coffee and donuts. Nothing like, you know, going to Mass or going to pray. Just celebrating with donuts.
|"Glazed be with you." "And with your spirit!"|
Seven) Now I am off to clean the most disgusting toilet in the Midwest. Probably more fitting for commemorating the passion than indulging myself with deep fried dough doused in glaze.
Go see GRACE-- this Friday's special quick takes hostess-- for some more!
