My Monday on Tuesday

I had every intention of posting last night, but yesterday was more than a little interesting here in Texas. We have felt the earthquakes from Oklahoma and yesterday we were on a Tornado watch all day long! There were a few times, we thought we might have to go underground, but we were spared. (I hope and pray every one else was as lucky.) We had quite the thunder and lightning storm, so sleep was nearly impossible.

The earth seems quiet now, and I am happy to be going about my day once again. Of course, I will be doubling up today since yesterday went completely unplanned. Ah well.

Lately, I have been keeping a pad of paper nearby to write down whatever may come to mind. There seems to be so much to do before the baby gets here, that sometimes my head feels swimmy. You see, I am the girl who had her wedding planned within two days of being engaged. I had my home ready to move each time within 48 hours. And yet, I do not have the nursery completely set up. I have a list of pediatricians, but our insurance is still wonky right now, so I'm in limbo there. We are receiving some second hand furniture (for free!....Hallelujah!) in order to reorganize and make some room for the little guy. I have a list of things he needs and family members who want to give it to him. I've got meals planned for our first few weeks, but I still feel like I'm treading through mud.

So once again, I'm Praying Like Crazy.

One thing is for sure, I have the holiday bug bad this year, and I feel so liberated knowing that I don't need to buy gifts and wrap them. My niece will be the only one receiving a gift, since we decided to only buy for the kiddos this year. Seems everyone's pocketbook leaves a little to be desired.

I know some women can't wait to have their babies here, and wish their pregnancy would be done and over with. I, on the other hand, love, love, LOVE being pregnant and wouldn't mind if time slowed down.

I am determined to soak up every single moment and leave my "Lists of To Dos" at the feet of Christ. He will sustain me and He will be the one to determine when all is said and done.
