Thoughts...

Today

I am still horrified that my boys were throwing snowballs at cars. I do realize that they were pretending they were on the planet Hoth and the cars were Ti fighters- but really?

I am dreading cooking this turkey for supper. I despise touching raw poultry.

I am wondering if I am going to meet my goal of getting to the 50 mile mark in the 100 mile swim club before the baby comes. I have 4 1/2 miles left. I will have to keep moving. Along those same lines, I am not sure that my maternity swimsuit will last 3 more weeks...

I am thinking about getting the baby boxes down from the rafters. I may send Noah tonight. Deacon and I may be able to handle it, but it could get dicey.

I am figuring out my cooking plan for the week and how I can time everything when our new freezer won't be delievered until Friday.

I am feeling old. My hips hurt when I get out of bed and I feel like I can barely walk some days. Counting down my shifts at work. Only 5 unless I decide to pick up some more.

I am reading "Parenting is Heart Work", "Heaven" and my Beth Moore Esther study. All very thought provoking.

My friend Becki just had a little baby, Cole on Friday. (welcome Cole!) It was so nice to get to see him and hold him finally! It made me all the more anxious for our baby too, though. After reading several birth stories on blogs lately and then hearing about Becki's....well, I am not too anxious to go through labor again. But I guess I am committed :)

My mom says you forget the pain of labor after the baby is born. That never was the case for me. I can remember each experience vividly. I am planning to VBAC with this little one. I am really hoping to avoid being induced because with the VBAC they can't be as agressive. I would hate to wait until 41 weeks, be induced, labor and then end up with a c section; especially when I could have just selected the c section to begin with.

It is reassuring to know that God knows when and how this little one will enter the world, even though we don't.

Well, the prolific artists are drawing more pictures for their walls. (guess what of?) They are definitely into quantity above quality... I guess it is time to go steer them in a different direction for awhile...

They didn't like my drawing of Princess Leia. They said they were hoping that I would do it "right." I guess it was bad that I gave her a lightsaber.:)

do you get your membranes stripped? works for me every time - i get it done 2 weeks before my due date and i end up going into labor that night and deliver early the next morning. i'm just sayin'.

LOL
Karla, you'll have to explain to the boys that as Luke's sister, Princess Leia is "strong in the force". Therefore, a pink light saber should probably be okay.

Grandma Debbie said...

Karla, you could tell them Leia is "strong in the ways of the forest" :) At least that's what Deacon was saying a week or two ago.

Karla you can tell then that according to Wookieepedia, Leia used her considerable Force talents to train to be a Jedi Knight in the New Jedi Order after the fall of the Empire.

(In case anyone is wondering she did indeed marry Han Solo and they had twins who were also Force-sensitive.)

I don't blame you. Childbirth is terrifying. However, I had a completely painless one so now I'm a believer in the epidural. In our state people aren't allowed to do VBACS so it's cool you have that option. I pray it goes VERY well for you!

See when we had been playing Star Wars in "person" Deacon had told me that Princess Leia had learned the ways of the force and gave me a lightsaber...so I thought she could have one...
