Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Depression....Tropical, that is

We have a tropical depression moving through here...started sometime yesterday. Fortunately there has not been any severe weather, at least not for us, but lots of rain. The sports class was cancelled due to flash flood watches, etc. so the kids are home. They have been reading old National Geographic kids magazines, collecting the animal cards that come in them, and quizzing me and each other about the various animals listed. I actually knew all of the bear facts...yay me! They have also played Webkinz this morning. It's just a lazy, rainy day.

I was able to get some more baby clothes put away and I finished packing my hospital bag. Hailey noted that "last time you got your bag ready it wasn't very long until you had the baby." She is correct. I told her I was getting it ready because it probably won't be too much longer and I need to have it ready to grab-n-go. I teased her that I'm just waiting on her to tell me when I'm gonna have the baby. With Emma, she said when I was tucking her in that night, "I think you're gonna have the baby tonight." And lo and behold.....I went in to the hospital during the wee hours that very next morning! So, she's become our prophetess....;) By the way, she said today, "I think you're gonna have the baby tonight or tomorrow night." So, we'll see what happens.

I also got the floor in the downstairs bathroom mopped...it is always the dirtiest because it's used the most....and yesterday I cleaned the shower because it was NASTY.

Nesting? Yes. :)
