39 weeks and my bags are packed!

The big day is... TOMORROW!

Charlie is set for his arrival into the world at 1:30 pm. We should arrive at the hospital at 11:30 am or so.

The problem is that we are always late. Always. I'm hoping that we can manage to be on time tomorrow!

I am so nervous!
So excited, but SO nervous.

Here's how I spent my last day as a mommy to ONE child:

8:00- woke up and cuddled with my Avery. What a great way to start my day!

9:30 - David and I took Avery to Preschool together. I had to show him all the procedures for checking her in and making her feel secure, etc. Inevitably, he won't remember any of them, but there are lots of lovely ladies there to help him out!

10:30 - went to breakfast with my sweet husband

11:30 - made David take me to the dollar tree where we got some things to put in Avery's "Happy Bucket" for the hospital.

By the way, I scored BIG TIME and found some styrofoam cones for $1 each (way cheaper than Michael's or Hobby Lobby). That's a beautiful thing.

12:00-12:45 - took a nap. Good stuff. Not long enough.

1:00 - got my hair cut

1:45 - got my car washed

2:20 - picked up Avery from Preschool

3:00 - made David go with me to Walmart.
I had a $10 gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket and had to spend it ASAP.

I bought this:

and this:

Exciting, huh?

4:00 - came home and got dressed for cheesy church directory family photo - in coordinating colors, of course. 'cause that's a requirement for cheesy directory photo.

5:30 - arrived SUPER late for cheesy church directory family photo session.

I felt like a blueberry in my light blue-too-tight cardigan.
I kept waiting for the Oompa Loompas to roll me to the Juicing Room...

6:00 - attempted to keep Avery from screaming during the ENTIRE church photo session while The Kinda Scary Photographer Guy was calling her, "Avera" and shaking a stuffed teddy bear in her face.

6:05 - tried to convince Kinda Scary Photographer Guy that we were not interested in posing for the "David touching my belly and looking sweetly into my exhausted eyes shot".

6:15 - sat through SUPER long presentation where sales lady tried to convince us to purchase a queer-looking staff photo and several random-looking family photos (while having major Braxton-Hicks pains).

FYI: Every woman should have a publicly viewed photo taken of her the day before she GIVES BIRTH. It's great for the ego.

6:30 - dinner at Sonic.
I cheated.
I'm done.
Seriously, done.
You don't even want to know what I ate.
Hint: It rhymes with "silli sneeze stony."

6:45 - dropped Avery off at my SIL's house and went to...

7:00 - David Crowder concert.

Side note:
Charlie either really loved it, or REALLY hated it 'cause he was going crazy the whole time. Our friend plays guitar for Jeremy Horn who was opening for David Crowder tonight. It was really fun.

9:30 - picked up a very sleepy Avery and cuddled, cuddled, cuddled until she ASKED me to put her in her crib.

10:45 - started BLOGGING and am currently listening to David clean my kitchen. Because he is precious.

Now... if I could just get to sleep.
I don't know if that's going to happen! Maybe I should lock up the Mod Podge.

I'm liable to start decoupaging the walls at 3 AM.

Loved the the church directory story - sounded like our experience sans the pregnant picture part. The scary dude kept calling Perri -Terri and that totally ticked her off! Our pictures are sooooooo B-A-D!

It's 11:30on the spot right now - I am praying for you guys and will give you a buzz later! Happy birthday, Charlie!
