Spring Break and other such things

Last week was my Spring Break (love being a teacher), and I was a very busy mommy-to-be. Chris was able to schedule two of his days off during last week, so we were actually able to get some stuff done. The garden, for example. We set out early in the morning, because it was supposed to be over 85 degrees that day, for Home Depot to get some flowers, mulch, soil, etc. We stopped at McDonald's on the way home for a drink which Chris did not see the need for.

"Don't we have drinks at home?" he asked.

"Yes, but not Diet Dr. Pepper from fountain in a Styrofoam cup," I replied. "Besides, I am sitting here in the front seat holding flowers that wouldn't fit into the back seat getting pollen all over me. I deserve it."

When we got back home, we got to work immediately. As it turns out, it is really hard to bend over, squat down, dig holes, etc. when almost ready to birth a baby. I spent the majority of the day sitting on the ground next to Chris handing him the flowers. He worked really hard.

By the end of the day, here was my idea of gardening:

And here was Chris's:

The next day, my wonderful mother came into to town to help me tackle the many items on my to-do list. I seriously couldn't have done it without her! We did a lot of shopping, organizing, washing, shopping, organizing, washing, etc. Oh, and eating. I gained three pounds.

But, the baby's room is ready. I apparently have all of the items that I need to take care of the baby. I just need the baby.

Here's some very bad pictures of the decorated nursery. The only things missing are the wall hangings (some stuff from the bedding line, something that will have the yet-to-be-named baby's name on it, and some pictures).

Two weeks to go!!!!
