Vacation Commencement

Of course I couldn't sleep last night. As a result the Orclette didn't get a whole lot of sleep either. Maybe we'll both sleep in the car .... that would be wonderful. Mother-in-law will pick us up at 6 am, we'll drive to the east side of San Antonio. The next day we'll finish the drive to Houston. We're splitting it up because it's much safer for me that way :D

Anyway, until we get to Houston I really don't have anything interesting to blog about. I need new material, which I'm sure I'll get once I'm around my brothers. And my slighty nutso but very cool mom, and my loquacious father who sometimes says the darndest things :D

Bah. Only 30 minutes left to gather everything up. Bon voyage to me!

Much Better

I spent 3 hours last night writing encouraging notes to some missionary peeps my mother-in-law knows. It wasn't just me, the whole bible study group was in on the project. But I was the fastest encouraging-note writer so guess who got to do a HUGE number of the things? Yeppers, that would be me. I have practice-years of being a youth group leader over the little highschoolers. I'd write notes every once in a while to encourage them. Nothing like a good laugh to cheer up the day.

Or, as one person said, "Everyone should start the day with a smile and get it over with."

And I'm in a better mood today. Damm woke us up this morning-he received special permission to call and wish the Orclette a happy birthday (which is July 5th) before his platoon left for Victory Week. He was only allowed 2 minutes but still, it was a nice way to wake up. Today I have the orientation at the hospital and then I'm done with doctors for a bit. Tomorrow we do all the final packing and last-minute shopping and then Friday we are on vacay! So exciting.

And I'm out of things to say. I'm hungry.

This week has not been fun. I've been yelled at by a doctor and get to suffer through 2 doctor's appointments. Well, one is a 2-hour orientation. Which is supposed to be followed up by your first OB visit. When I told them I would be out of town for a bit the yelling started. I told them I was going no matter what they said and did I just need to show up at the hospital when labor started since it sounded like they didn't want to see me? I was assured that no, they want to see me before that and if I got back into town sooner to call them. I'm just concerned that the doctor will try to talk to me again tomorrow during the orientation. I stink at confrontations. So I think I'm going to bring my mother-in-law along just in case.

And if one more person asks me why I'm traveling at this stage in my pregnancy I'm going to hit them. It's been two whole days of that.

ggrrrrrrr. I can't wait until we leave Friday and I can leave all this stress and worry behind. I was perfectly fine until I had to go to the doctor. You see, doctors stress me out. I was almost 5 months along with the Orclette before I consented to see one. And I had a horrible experience. I understand that doctor peoples are good in emergencies and they save lives. And I think that's awesome. I just hate having to see them myself.

And that's what be going on in our lives currently. Getting ready to leave, getting yelled at by a doctor I've yet to meet, and stressing out that something might prevent me from going (believe it or not, if going would jeopardize my health or kiddo #2's health I wouldn't go. I just see no reason why it would). I can't wait til this little kid is out and all I have to do is go with them when they need to see the doctor. No more doctors for me!!!
