I woke up this morning and started to get ready for church and then realized I was having a few pre-labor/early labor symptoms and decided maybe we should just stay home. I was scared I would go into labor in the middle of the service and that would not be good. It's like the time a year or two ago that we had Travis Cottrell singing at our church one Sunday morning and right when he started singing "In Christ Alone" (I was ready for a moment of worship with God) - this man behind me started having a seizure and passed out and I stood up and screamed for this doctor in our church. I can't believe I did that - but I also thought the man was going to die. He was fine.
Anyway - I jumped up and got my cookies all bagged up so we could have those ready for the hospital. And then I took a shower so I could have good hair and make-up on should I go to the hospital. (there are WAY too many pictures taken on the big day to not have good hair and lipstick). ha! And then I settled down to watch church on TV - and I saw some really good services. :-) I was a little sad to miss church because this would have been our last childless Sunday EVER and I know I'll probably miss the next few weeks of church while we settle in with Harper and I can't stand to be away from my church that long. Hopefully Scott and I can trade off keeping her at home after a week or two so I can at least go some.
Well - the news is - I'm not in labor yet. But I think it could be anytime. And I'm either nesting or have a small case of ADD (which I think is true of me all the time because I can NOT just sit still) - I decided to make some chocolate pretzels with pink sprinkles to go along with the cookies. Ya'll better come see us in the hospital! ha! :-)
On to a different subject:
My all time favorite is David Cook from last season. I LOVED him. And I loved watching him get better and better each week. He blew me away. I can't wait to see what this season holds!
P.S. If you are a teacher (or even if you aren't) - you should go read the post my brother just wrote. There is a reason I think he is the funniest person I know.
