Aaaaand Today is Going to be Rough.

One step forward two steps back.  That seems to be true to me at least.  Yesterday I was a bit more optimistic.  I even had fun.  My friend Becca from Life in Technicolor brought over these crazy cookies called "Break My Water Cookies" ha ha ha.  They are like spicey gingerbread cookies.  I knew they would do nothing to get labor going but it was a fun idea and I ate like 5 of them, and they were really good.  Then we walked around Walmart and talked a lot.  She is an awesome person.

While at Walmart we found PEPPERMINT MARSHMALLOWS!!! Pretty much the best invention ever.  So I had hot chocolate and peppermint marshmallows last night.  Yum.

This morning... woke up not feeling so happy and optimistic.  It wasn't truly horrible until I remembered that last night I had to fold down the panel on my maternity jeans because it was cutting into my belly too much... then I remembered how they kept rolling down and not staying up.  Then realization hit... I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR ANYMORE!  I have one pair of maternity jeans... they aren't working anymore... and my shirts are starting to climb up my belly.  So what do I do?  I cry...

Then I remember "everything's not lost" and I get out my "big jeans" that I bought at the thrift store for after I have the baby... I get innovative and use one of my lycra cammies... I don't put the shoulder straps on and pull it down over the top of my unbuttoned/unzipped jeans and I think I have a solution worked out...
(ignore my messy mirror, my kids sometimes don't know how to spit their toothpaste in the sink... as for the counter mess, that's all me, ha!)
Then I am cleaning the kitchen and spill bacon grease all over the jeans... solution ruined and I'm back to the "depths of dispair"... 

40 Weeks 1 Day...
waiting on you Avery.
