Betty Crocker I am NOT, but I am still around! ;)

Howdy Howdy all! I just wanted to let you know that I haven't disappeared, I promise! I haven't been online as much as normal, but I am still around. I make sure to check my email and favorite message board, Mommys Place Forums, daily. I also read my pal's, Nell & Jen, blogs daily to keep myself updated.

Mom arrived Friday evening around 9pm and I have been busy enjoying my time with her and getting ready for the baby. I haven't seen her in almost a year so we have a lot of catching up to do. I've been busy learning new things to cook (she's the bestest cook ever)!! I absolutely hate cooking and baking, we'll just say Betty Crocker I ain't! LOL I am not a from scratch cook, but I have a feeling that before she leaves I will be...things just taste so much better that way!! I'm beginning to think that Jerry is gonna send me back to Indiana and keep her here! So far he has loved everything she's made and I'm taking notes on it all, cause as they say: "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach!" LOL Here's to hoping that I can enjoy cooking as much without her here as I am with her here. There is just something about spending time in the kitchen with my mom that makes the process more enjoyable.

As for the baby update: I go to the doctor for my 37 week checkup today and am hoping that we are closer to delivering this baby. After last week I really am hoping that I have dialated some. I have dropped even more over the last few days and have had spurts of energy this week. Yesterday, I fixed screens in the windows around the house and I have been cleaning things that I wouldn't have normally thought to clean just out of the blue. Haven't had the huge burst of energy that is common but with Zach I didn't either so maybe that's a good sign. I do a little here and a little there and rest in between! Mom has been a huge help too! She has helped me by doing some of the everyday things that need to be done so that I can save my energy for the other things that I have been putting off because I haven't had the energy to get them accomplished yet.

We finally got the baby bed and Jerry's sister Wendy bought us a stroller and a few more outfits and hooded towels (those are the greatest and I highly recommend any new parent invest in them). Wendy is coming over this weekend to paint the ceiling in the baby's room and put the border up, she's so much better at that than I am! The theme of the room is going to be jets and she is going to paint the ceiling blue and then sponge white clouds into it. A friend of Jerry's at work is going to cut the board for a small shelf that goes all the way around the room so we can put little jets that we've been accumulating over the months on it. He also plans to hang a few jets from the ceiling I think, we'll see what happens. Things are moving right along and I am hoping that it all gets accomplished before Hunter arrives! ;)

Ok, I need to go for now, but will be back later to post the doctor visit results! Until next time....have a wonderful day everyone!!
