My step sister, tawnya flew in on Friday for a little vacation with her boyfriend, Sung. We got together Friday night for dinner 7 then went back to their hotel to go swimming. I opted out of that plan, so I just watched from the side as my darling husband delt with 4 kiddos in the water (yeah, I know I should have gotten in!) Yesterday we picked them up from the hotel and brought them back to our house for pizza and a movie. It was great to finally meet Sung and visit with Aunt Tawnya for awhile. I'm not sure if we will make it to Seattle after the baby arrives, we will see how up to it I feel when the time comes.( And please ignore my 13 chins in the 2nd picture!)

I think I have all the big stuff I need for the baby now. This weekend I found a bassinett for $ 15.00 (it sings, vibrates,rocks or stands still & is white) I wanted to make a really cool cradel or find a cool vintage one to repaint and totally fix up- but then I got realistic and reminded myself- the last month is pure awfulness, so don't plan anything then, the 8th month is crazy time to get everything done that HAS to get done, so I knew I had a few weeks left to have a yard sale, organize the sheds (a ginormous project!)and do "fun stuff" before my 500 pounds weighs me down completely and I can no longer move! I also found a swing for $ 10.00! It even plugs into the wall! No more batteries! Although the fabric is not my choice and the dangeling animals do not excite me- I think I will just leave it alone. I'm tired of pretending I know how to recover things. I'll spend my time on things I know will look ok in the end. I found more colored ink as well for $ 5.00! (I was wanting to stock up on ink after we got our tax $, but I hadn't got around to it- Thank you Lord for the good deals on ink- I've saved A TON!)For $10.00 I know have 1 black cartridge & 3 colored ones! Yeah!
