its been two weeks...

well, what can i say life is going by at a pretty good clip and documenting it seems to have really fallen by the way side.
the most recent happening, Dominic getting to spend a week with Baka and Grandpa B in Iowa!
Mom posts pictures on FB every day of the fun things theyre doing.

baking cookies... YUM
assembling Lego starcruiser while eating what appears to be pineapple, a hot dog and a mini muffin...ok, not a flavor combination i would choose.

meanwhile back here at the ranch we thought we would have time to get some things done, but so far we havent.
Monday, i was having contractions all afternoon and was told to drink LOTS of water and rest for the evening, that took care of the problem, i also took extra magnesium, that helped.
Tuesday, visitation for a good friend, Greg Humphrey, who had passed away on saturday, he has 2 daughters ages 19 and 15 and will be so greatly missed by so many people. after that you just want to veg out on some action hero movies.
Wednesday, EXHAUSTED!!! missed out on 2.5 hours of sleep between 2:30 and 5 this morning...why? i have to go to the bathroom, then i am hungry, then i have heartburn, then Ken is snoring. of course today was the funeral, it was NASTY out drizzly, cold and grey, that makes me even more tired.
so thats been my week in a nut shell.

Ken and i got all dressed up and attended the Choices For Women fundraising banquet last night.
Dominic got to spend the evening with Rachel, which is always a treat for him because Rachel pretty much lets him do whatever he wants.

The director of Choices for Women here in the madison area shared stories of helping women, young and old choose life but also told us that 13 women in the last 3 years have been led to accept Christ as well.

we got to see friends from Hanover United Methodist Church there as well as, friends from , First Baptist, Good Samaritain, Rykers Ridge Baptist, Cornerstone baptist, Christian Academy of Madison, EO Muncie Elementary, the OB/GYN office, it was so wonderful to see so many from all over the county with hearts to help expectant mothers in crisis situations.
