We had our doctor's visit, I've got my lessons planned for my sub, and we have made some headway on the mother-in-law bonus room. And we have our first baby shower scheduled at my husband's home church over Thanksgiving break. That's exciting. We did a little registering for gifts at Target, but I'm not sure how much we need for their stage of development. So we mostly registered for crib sheets and developmental toys. I don't know anything about bottle flow and feedings and diapers. I just know we're going to need to do it.
I'm starting to have dreams about babies and travel and adoption. Last night I was trying to adopt a little blonde headed boy ... in Honduras or Mexico? I was speaking Spanish in my dream. So I ate Taco Bell for lunch.
As far as the trip and the planning goes, we're in that stretch of the run where you know the end is a reasonable distance away, but you are just running out of steam because you expended so much energy in the excitement at the start of the race. Pray for steam. Pray for time to get everything done, and a little time to do NOTHING - because that's lacking these days. And pray for some Barnabases...Barnabi?? Sons of encouragement to come along beside us and help with some things we just can't do right now. Like....does anybody want to help me paint/make props for a musical that is going to happen about 33 hours after we get home?
For now, I'm taking advantage of one of those quiet moments, and I'm going to go back to watching (disappointing) college football (I'm an Ole Miss and Longhorns fan). The highlight of that endeavor is seeing interestingly costumed characters in the stands. What about a giant penguin suit screams "Go Sooners"?
I'm just sayin'.
