Day My Heart Doubled

Thursday October 22, 2009, Kris, my parents and I all woke up bright and early at 4:30am.  Holy Crap, we're having a baby today!!  The hospital bags were packed, but I hadn't gotten much sleep due to my cough that I have had for a week and a half.  But I didn't really have a choice - I got out of bed, doubled checked the hospital bag yet again, ate two bowls of cereal - Honey Nut Cheerios and Frosted Mini Wheats.  Got dressed in the only pants that fit me - my yoga pants, and a long sleeved t-shirt that could barely contain my belly any more.  But I figured I just had to make it to the hosp

  1. Wonderful in-laws that I get along with, who live close to us.  I can't have my family, but at least we can be with Kris' family!  I see a lot of people who don't get along with their in-laws - I'm graced with ones that I love.
  2. Skype, the most wonderful technology ever developed.
  3. Breakfast.  Omelette & hash browns, with lots of ketchup.
  4. My husband, who has (seemingly) infinite patience when it comes to dealing with me.
  5. Lemon drops, that my mother in law picks up for me at truck stops.  They're the BEST.  I'm willing to share. :)

So I was reading someone's blog...  I'm not a stalker, but I find that some people's blogs are just fun and insightful to read.  I think blogs can be therapeutic, just releasing your emotions and thoughts and such into writing, in the void of the internet.  Anyway.  This person has started listing 5 things that has graced your life that day, for the next year.  I can't guarantee that I will do this everyday... But when I do, I'd like to include it in my blogs.
