Monday Minutes

-This weekend was an emotional one. Declan's dad has been in the hospital very sick with pneumonia and earlier in the weekend they were saying he had a slim chance of making it. The good news is, he's actually doing MUCH better, and the doctor's are feeling optimistic. So are we.

-In the midst of all that going on, we still had a productive and fun weekend while keeping him on our mind and doing lots of praying.

-I got to eat Mexican food Friday night, and well, what pregnant girl can complain about that?
(Other then the 45 minute wait...gahhh...)

-My mom met me at the mall on Saturday evening and bought me some awesome nursing bras, nursing tank tops and cute nighties, even! It may not seem exciting, but it totally was to me. One less
(well, 6-less) things I have to purchase on my own...and they will make life easier. I love my mom :)

-I finally bought a pair of sunglasses after squinting for the last year and a half, and they may or may not have some bling on them.

-I am admitting that yesterday morning I woke up and whined to told Declan just how tired, sore, and ready to be done being
this pregnant. Even though I really have loved pregnancy, at the end--it's hard. Not.gonna.lie.

-We spent most of Sunday in the hospital in Philadelphia visiting Declan's dad with the rest of the family. It was good to just be together and to see for ourselves that he's on the road to recovery.

-Last night, I reeeeally wanted spaghetti for dinner. No meat or anything in it-just spaghetti. We made that happen, and seriously, spaghetti never-tasted-so-good. Truly.

-I have 10 days left of teaching "officially"...however, if baby decides to come earlier, that could change that.

-My substitute is spending the whole day with me today to shadow. After this day is under my belt, I'll be ready to get these next two weeks over with, and quick.

Hope your weekends were lovely...!

Happy Monday!
