I got a lot accomplished today. It was mostly lists of places to go and things to find and get, all before baby comes. So a lot of "little things". But now, I am feeling it... we even picked out Peyton's first Pooh Bear, a tradition that all began when Lynn was small.
We were gone for so long, and kept so busy, as I was driving home (at 6:30 pm, late...), I asked the girls what they wanted for dinner. Lynn said little pizzas, Ashley yelled, "No! Olibe Garden!" We had been near Olive Garden earlier in the day when we went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond on one of our quests. She remembered. The more I thought about it on the drive home, the more I liked it. So we went, as an early birthday dinner. I have a lot to do tomorrow.
My blessing for the day... due to recent stories in the news, I am so thankful for the Gospel. The grounding it gives me in my life, but most importantly, the knowledge of how sacred life is. I am so blessed to carry a life inside of me. I am so blessed to be a mother. I am so blessed to be surrounded by mothers and other women who believe these same things, who believe that what they are doing every day, is a sacred calling.
Oh yeah, in my quest for groceries, I also got myself a treat... cheap chocolates. They are only $2.50 a box at Wal-Mart... but oh, so delicious! Merrill thinks they taste horrible, that just means more for me!!!
