I know, I know...I'm not posting much. I'm having a really hard time sitting at the computer for more than a very short time because the baby has her feet firmly planted in my ribs and it HURTS a bit. :) I can't get comfortable trying to reach over my belly to the keyboard either lol.

Anyway, I'll try and post updates as I can. I have 27 days left until my due date!  Phew. I'm still not ready lol. I have a list of things I need to do and I'm praying the car seat arrives before Amber does or it could be a teeny weeny bit hard to bring her home.

I'm getting excited and nervous...feelings you have no matter how many kids you've had. I can't wait to hold her in my arms rather than my belly and to let her daddy and siblings enjoy her, too.

I haven't been up to much except getting our school routine back in place (it's going well) and getting things and myself ready for the baby. Sleep is something I may enjoy a long time from now, but at this point, sleeping on the couch in an upright position is not comfortable.

It's almost done though and I'm feeling great overall. Just some soreness here and there. I've been wanting to walk at the park, but it has been raining here for days.   Maybe soon.

In other news, our gorgeous new dining table, bench and chairs arrived. It is so beautiful and we all fit around the table plus we can have three more people fit there. Well, two after Amber takes a spot. I'll have to take some pictures and post them.

There is a movie coming out on Saturday that is supposed to be awesome. I really wish it was coming to a theatre near me as I think it would be even more riveting on the big screen, but I may have to wait until it comes out on DVD unless my theatre decides to get it. Check out the website for End of the Spear which is based on a true story. If you get to see it, come post a comment and let me know what you thought.

That's about all the news for me (and about all my ribs can handle) right now. I'll try and post again soon.

Hi Maria - It's been a while! Great to see you. :)

Tish - Thanks for visiting again. Yes, the rib pain is so not fun. Not much longer now.

I remember those rib pains all too well. Its a great story/guilt trip when they are old enough to comprehend your sacrifices for their creation. Good luck and keep smiling. Drugs can be your friend in the delivery room, that's a Tish tip.

Hello Audra, I was reminiscing through my journal the past few days and came upon your name in some comment sections. So, I decided to pop in for a long-overdue visit. How nice to find that you're not only pregnant, but you're just about due!! I've had a wonderful time catching up with you today! I, too, can't wait to see "End of the Spear"!

Have a wonderful day!

Peggy: I can't wait to see and hold Amber. :)

Claire: Thanks. Your idea might be what we have to do although we will be about an hour from everyone we know.

Glad to see you're doing well, in spite of lack of co-operation internally :)

Hopefully if the car seat doesn't come, you would be able to borrow one?

Wow, due date's almost here! I'm going to see that movie in two weeks with my church youth group. Looks like it'll be good!
