This is no surprise if you know me

As the days continue to count down to the arrival of our new little family member I feel more and more stress and anxiety. HOW am I going to do this. I am more stressed about all the things that need to happen before she comes. The fact that I don't know when she will come is making me the most crazy. What if I run out of time and don't get report cards and comments done? What if I don't have sub plans ready? What if I don't know if I am really in labor? AHHHHHH I am sure everything will work out, BUT if you know me at all this post is not a surprise. Wish me luck in my next months adventure.

Oh and this is pretty accurate after work these days. I spend every extra second assessing my students one on one to hopefully get it all done. All while listening to a constant "Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith, over and over and over. It is very hard to concentrate.

Easter and 5 Weeks Left

Well Spring break has come and gone. Man time goes by fast when you don't have to work. I spent most of the week sitting and watching TV. I felt so pathetic but it also felt good to just sit and do nothing. I kept up on the house cleaning and laundry so when Saturday came around yesterday it was nice not to wake up and do everything! I made Easter dinner today. It was delicious. We left church a half hour early so Roy could enjoy eating it since he had to go to work. Boy did he enjoy it. He couldn't stop talking about how it was the best meal he had had in a long time. He said "Wife, you nailed it!" Kind of nice to hear. Maybe I will cook more often. But before I can do another crock pot I need to get a new one because mine broke. :( OH well I am a little happy because I have wanted to get a bigger one for a while now. Now I have a good reason to get one.

The Easter bunny also visited our house last night... MMMmmmmm candy.....

Well here is my 35 week picture. White shirt was dirty so I am in black, which is probably a good thing. Black is slimming right? Could you imagine what I would have looked like if I didn't wear black? YIKES!! 5 weeks or so and counting. I have got to start cracking down at work and prepare to leave. I need to get all my students assessed for report cards and write comments. My goal is to try and get them done by the middle of May so if for some CRAZY (maybe good) reason Ellie decides to show up early I am ready. I also need to find someone who wants to sub my class and do some plans for that. Ahh so much to do.

It's Finally Here!

Spring Break is finally here. It came late this year and I was in much need of a break. I am 34 weeks and am starting to feel pregnant. That means I am tired and it is becoming difficult to do things like bending over to pick stuff up. Oh and climbing the stairs to get to our apartment makes me feel more and more out of shape each time I do it. Anyways, now I get to kick back for a whole week and rest. Of course I have to do some projects because I can only sit still for so long before I go nuts. Here is my first spring break project. I am not sure what else I will make so if you have any ideas let me know.
Yes those are the instructions for the carseat. I had to take it out of the box to make sure it fit. Then of course I had to put the stroller together. Man this baby stuff takes up a lot of space. We are going to need to move before we know it.

32 Weeks

Hope this doesn't bug people that I post my growing belly but I figure since we live so far away and family doesn't get to see me they can watch me grow. Here I am at 32 weeks. Not the best picture but the camera died and I didn't get anymore before Roy left for the Priesthood session.
