33 weeks!

33 weeks!!! They told me at the doctor last Thursday that in 3 weeks that won't stop my labor if it starts and they won't let me go longer than 7 days max after my due date....That means between 3 and 7 weeks from now, Morgan will be here!!! crazy! I can't wait! I'm hoping she comes around 39 weeks on her own!

We had a wonderful 1st baby shower Saturday with lots of family. I'll post pics soon!

Car Shopping Weekend Here We Come

We found out that Josh's SUV was indeed a total loss. The good news, at least, is that they are giving us a little over two thousand dollars than we owed on it, so we have extra money to put down on another car. But...this also means we have to spend the weekend shopping for cars.

We're looking for a used car but one that's still in really good condition and that will keep our payment about the same as it was. That, unfortunately, means that we have to look at a million different cars and on a million different lots. We've been looking online, but its hard to tell about the condition of a car based on 1 or 2 pictures online. So, that means my weekend will be spent looking for a car for Josh, haggling with sales reps and signing lots of papers. Boooooo. I wanted to go shopping for me clothes for my baby showers and for a wedding I have to go to in 2 weeks. Oh, well.

I'm going to put on my smiley face and enjoy shopping for cars with my hubby and my 8 month preggo belly!! :-)

Wish us luck!

Thankful !!!!

The start of this week was not a good one and it was one of those days when you just wish you had a magic remote control for life and could go back and rewind the day, but......when it was all said and done I was so thankful for God's protection on us. Here's what happened....

Monday morning started off as usual; I left the house around 7:30, kissed Josh goodbye and was off to work. He usually leaves around 8ish, but by that time I'm already at work going over patent's lab work,etc. phone rang around 8:15 and Josh says "Don't be mad, but I just crashed my car. I'm ok, but my car is pretty bad." Of course I was panicked and went to get him. He hydroplaned during pouring down rain on Hwy 121 just a little way from our house. He spun and hit the cement barrier between the north/southbound lanes then bounced off and the back of his car hit a metal guardrail. Thank the Lord no other cars were involved. And, other than a slightly sore L shoulder, Josh is just fine.

We got the SUV toed, got Josh a rental and we are still waiting to hear back from the insurance on if its going to be a total loss of repairable.

But...all of that to say, that I am so thankful Josh is ok. Every morning I pray for God's protection for him, me and Morgan. I can't imagine life without Josh and its even scarier now that Morgan is almost here. Accidents happen, I know, but thankfully we were blessed to only have a banged up car.

Josh and I were both a little shaken up thinking about the fact that a few months from now Morgan could have been in the backseat, but, THANKFULLY, she wasn't! I know he'll be even more careful from now on!

Thank you Jesus for protecting him and keeping him safe for me and his baby girl!!!!!
