It is beautiful outside...sigh...I am in cubicle land staring out over them at the sunny day. *sigh* I leave in 30 minutes to my 45 minute commute home. But I have a sun roof at least in the new vehicle.
Oh yeah, we traded in our lovely little Lancer, which will be greatly missed, for a Mercury Mariner. We are in love with it. It is very luxurious compared to our other small vehicles we've had. It is an older model 2007 but it is pretty much fully loaded. Leather, heated seats and automatic everything. We are excited about the new "baby-mobile" and the room it will have. Ms Madeline will have lots of room for all her stuff we need to travel with. :)
Hope everyone else has some sunshine outside to look forward to playing in!

Not much going on...

The belly is growing and I am getting less sleep, as is Nate. The round ligament pains are often and I am looking forward to May. I am so excited to finally meet her! I don't mind the aches and pains and the lack of sleep is only a taste of what's to come I am sure...The room is almost finished, I will post pics when I am done. I have to decide what to do with the curtains and quilt the blanket. Dust ruffle is complete as of last Sunday. I am looking forward to a more quiet weekend. The showers were a ton of fun and I loved seeing everyone but they wore me out. I came down with a Sinus infection last week and stayed home from work for three days. I did nothing...I hate when I am at home and cannot do anything. Sick or not it feels like wasted time. I wanted to clean and do other things and sew...I laid on the couch like a bump on a log. Maggie, Zeke and I caught up on our zzz's. Nate is in nesting mode again since there is lots to do before she gets here. He wants to tile the bathrooms first and then its on to yard work. Spring has sprung and we will soon be cutting grass and planting in the yard. I look longingly at my garden and know I will not have time. I will not miss pulling weeds but will miss all my fresh veggies! I will still have my herb garden and strawberries. I hopefully will have a decent crop of them if the rabbits don't get them. Since we have the ferocious beast that kills rabbits we may be okay this year since she has marked her territory. Rabbits run in fear of my shih-tzu! :) Laugh all you want but its true, she's a kill!
The house has been babyfied, there is baby stuff everywhere, clothes, diapers, car seat, stroller, etc. This kid has more clothes than I'll know what to do with. I have a ton of hand-me-downs and a ton of new clothes too. I am very thankful, I am sure she will use them and dirty them quickly. I love little girl clothes, they are so fun and cute! I am so excited to meet her, Nate is ready too. I want her to stay in and "cook" long enough of course but am getting anxious...its not as if we waited 4 1/2 years already, whats another 7 wks? Pray for patience for this for us. I'll update soon.

There's something wrong in the sky...

There are no clouds, there is this yellow/orange ball in the sky! Oh, that's right, its what they call the sun! I had forgotten what it looks like its been soooooooo very long since we've seen it in Indianapolis! I am thankful today for the sun and the weekend forecast, they are talking 50's in March! It will be nice to have some warmth!
