Brandon and I stayed up Sunday evening organizing Ellie's bathroom, but there was still a LOT of work left to be done. I woke up Monday morning completely overwhelmed by the amount of gifts still left to attend to. Also, I'm a sucker for keeping all gift bags and tissue so I had to go through all of that and get it organized!
It took me a while, but I was able to get all of my dishes moved to the kitchen from the banquet, cleaned out my Vera bag to be my labor/delivery hospital bag, organized the pantry, organized the linen closet, and removed all winter Maternity clothes from my closet and put them in a tote. It doesn't sound like much, but every small task accomplished takes so much energy for me now.
I had to travel to Alabaster to WalMart to buy MORE baby coat hangers and pick up photo prints from the weekend's events. I promise you that I walked over half of the store on purpose for some exercise. The attendant in the garden center asked me if I should be quickly heading home. He thought I was about to have the baby right there in the store! Too funny!! Apparently I am super huge to ALL who see me now. HeeHee. Then I stopped by the store to see Paul and the girls, as well as to pick up my watch and necklace I had left the week prior.
By that time Brandon was finished with his work day so Dad brought him to meet me so we could head to Buy Buy Baby to purchase the last remaining items that we needed for Ellie's arrival. That was exhausting! Who knew that it could be so difficult to find the right size diaper changing pad for the changing table AND then find the correct sized sheet.
We only had to make a few small purchases and we were on our way. I did get a little pissy when the girl messed up all of my coupons but we were both ready to go and I just didn't care anymore. I was starving and my back was killing me!
We decided to splurge and eat at LaPaz! It was so yummy, and it wasn't busy since it was only 6pm on a Monday evening.
I never get tired of looking at my husband. I hope that my clinginess and mushiness towards him never fades. Yes, we've been married almost 4 years now and together for 6, but my love for him grows every day. He's even sexier now that he's the father of my daughter. We may not lead an exciting life, but I enjoy sitting in my recliner beside him each evening. I couldn't imagine growing old with anyone else but him.
Once I was laying down, I was waiting for a very important announcement on Facebook.
Moving on to today........
I started the day by seeing that a small mass had become a LARGE mass on our doggy's chin. I took him to the vet and they sedated him to get samples to send off. They think it's cancer.
To say that we're upset is an understatement. I cried after I left him at the vet. Logan, aka Lil Buddy, is over 10 years old. He's supposed to be happy and healthy and ready to play with the baby. I will update on our furbaby as we know more. Please keep him in your thoughts!
