What I'm up to Wednesday

Thanks for all the encouraging comments on my last crazy mama post. My frustrations come and go, sometimes I'm on top of the world, sometimes crouched in terror (metaphorically).
But I do need to say that am grateful for every single thing I have and I will say here and now that I have been exceedingly blessed.
Especially when it comes to my husband. I neglected to acknowledge what an amazing man, husband, and father he is and I am SO excited to bring his son into the world! (I secretly hope that our little boy will look just like him, but if Ab-Fitz's cuteness leans more toward my side, I'll be happy. Healthy is my main goal here.)
There are so many things I have to be thankful for. That, and this beautiful message I watched on Monday night bring me a lot of peace. Thank you, Elder Cook!

So, on to what I'm up to today:

~Renewing insurance stuff. Fun, let me tell ya. It's pretty much done, thank goodness.

~Listening to the song Anywhere by Evanescence on Pandora radio. Holy crap, such a good song.

~Going to get my blood drawn again to track my platelet count. I've been loading up on foods that are "supposed" to help raise platelet levels. We'll see!
         *Baby update: Ab-Fitz is still in breech position. Even though I'd rather not have another c-section (it sure sucks recovering from those!), I'm okay with it if it does come to that. He still has time to flip. Sorta. He's huge. 6lbs 6 oz estimated weight at the last ultrasound. I'm now 35 weeks. We'll take all that with a grain of salt of course. I know these estimates can often be way off.

disgusting dirty mirror. why I didn't clean it beforehand remains one of the mysteries of the universe.

~I'm going to force myself to write today. I get too much good feedback on my Phantom of the Opera story to keep letting myself slack off.

~I'll also do some work on another wedding video. This one is an anniversary present that my friend is giving to her husband. Just in case he were to ever stumble on my blog (highly doubt it, but just in case anyway) I'm not going to say who it is. Only that it's going to be super precious and I can't wait to give her the final product!

~And finally... the crowning jewel of my day: I'm making Spaghetti Stroganoff for dinner. One of my favorite, favorite meals!!!! Ah, I can't wait. Maybe I'll make some crusty bread to go with it. Oh yum.  *pleasant shiver*

... and I'll be eating some cheesecake. Sometime today. Probably sooner before later. Courtesy of my lovely friend Camille B. :)

Hey now don't worry about cleaning that mirror, heck it's gonna have little finger prints all over it soon!!

I must have your spaghetti stroganoff recipe sounds wonderful!

Love the belly picture!

Your belly is so cute! I love that Ab-Fitz is doing well. I just read your last post. Its so difficult to let go of the fear. I have that fear also, the fear of being handed another monstrous trial. I pray you can have peace until you and your husband are holding your perfect baby in your arms.

Cheesecake, crusty bread, spaghetti stroganoff! Man I want to eat it all! HA

You are getting so close! Can't wait to see the lil guy!

What I Did Today said...

Oooo boy! BIG boy, that is! The estimates I was was given on my three girls were all pretty spot on. :) I have to say though, I enjoyed having a bigger baby. Elle was quite a bit bigger than her older sisters were and she just felt so much more sturdy. I liked that.

My favorite thing about this besides your cute belly? The dirty mirror. I feel much better about myself now:) Thank you kindly!
