The things you do...

The things you do when you are 9 and 1/2 months pregnant and can't just relax and watch TV.

Walking...I love going on long walks around beautiful Sydney Harbor admiring the houses on the lakes.
Sub. Plans...Organizing and reorganizing 15+ weeks of substitute plans that no one will understand but me. I just can't let it go. I have an amazing sub. who's coming in to be there for 12 weeks ( I have a few weeks prepaperd for when I get back) but I just keep worrying that I have forgotten something.
Reading...Although I can only read a chapter or two at a time since I can't find a comfy position.
Packing... I have Packed and repacked the hospital bags. As you see, I have a bag for myself and the baby that looks like we are going away on a week long vacation. I also packed a bag for Zak, you know just in case! :) I know neither of us will use any of the stuff we have packed but I need to be prepared for anything and I think I am with the amount we are taking to the hospital. I think it'll take Zak two loads just to get it all in the room.
Decorating... These are paintings that we got in Italy 2 and 1/2 years ago. We bought them (along with two others on the other side of the wall) in a little outdoor market and I just love them. I love the bright colors and memories they hold. Well, I love them so much that they have been sitting in a drawer for 2 and 1/2 years waiting to get framed and hung. I was IN LUCK with this extra time because I took them to Hobby Lobby and got them done...FINALLY!!!
Stampin' up...I love to make cards, as most of you know. On Thursday I sat down for 5 hours, with lots of breaks, and made these cards and even more. So you may see some of these in the mail at a later date! :)
Cleaning...On Wednesday I cleaned for hours. I scrubbed places that I'd never seen before. I know what you are saying... you're nesting...well maybe, but I really think that's just me. I get something in my head to organize or clean and it must be done RIGHT THEN AND THERE. I've always been like that. It drives Zak crazy because now if I want something done that I can't do it goes onto his "to-do list"and I don't stop bothering him until its done.
SHOPPING...Last weekend Zak decided it would be a good idea to get me out of the house, he could see how miserable I was, and we went to the new outlet mall right by our house. BAD IDEA! Our walking turned into a $400 shopping trip! :) We bought our selves "before the baby comes gifts"!

Oh yeah...I almost forgot...
Blogging...Starting this blog has been so much fun and has kept me busy playing on the computer!
I am a very active person. I have never been able to sit still and relax but the past couple of weeks, with no work and a lot of anxious anticipation, have been long very long. Everyone says just relax, take naps, watch TV, hang out while you can, well that is easier said than done! Its so hard when you can't get comfortable in ANY position. So, I keep myself busy as you can tell. I've also had lots of fun lunches with my mom, eating turkey sandwiches from anywhere and everywhere . I think after this diet is over Ill have a hard time eating a grilled chicken sandwich or turkey sandwich ever again since its pretty much all Ive been able to eat when we go out to eat. I need more variety!!!
(You can tell JUST how bored I am since I walked around my house and took pictures of these things just for this blog!!!!)

You are too funny! Love to keep up with your blog. I can't wait to keep up with it even more once Colton arrives and we get lots of pictures. Of course, I can't wait to meet the little guy either!

I thought about asking you to lunch the other day when the girls were gone, but I didn't know if that was mean or not. Hey come watch me eat while you aren't allowed to eat much of anything! We did a little outlet shopping there this weekend too! Kenny bought a bunch of new clothes. And amazingly, I bought NOTHING!
