Last week Annikan texed me and said there was a lady on Craigslist giving away a free breast pump. She said to hurry and text her so I did. Long story short and 100 text messages later- we went and picked it up a hour and 15 minutes away Sunday morning. It was a nice 3 hour drive/trip before church, but worth it. These things are $ 250- $ 300 and SOOOOOO much better than a hand pump, let me tell ya! I was extremely grateful and had a bag of crafty things I made for her, when we met. She was really nice, showed me how it worked and showed me the part I needed to pick up at Target. She just wanted to help someone out- it was really sweet! Thank you Annikan for telling me! Thank you Amanda for helping a stranger and thank you Lord for always looking out for me! On the way back home Tristin calls out- "All that, for a breast pump???" I died laughing. Yup, I though. All that for a breast pump! (his face was priceless as I explained what a pump actualy does! Oh, to be a 10 year old boy with a baby on the way. He has no idea!!!)

For the next few weeks, we are taking a little break from the kids activities. I'm so greateful they have been involved (they needed it) but boy, driving kids around everywhere can be crazy! We had stuff going every night of the week except Friday nights! Tristin was in guitar lessons for 3 months (THANK YOU UNCLE JESSE!!!). They were all in gymnastics for a month, and they all recently finished swim lessons at the Rec. (Tristin has scouts on Thursday's) And at the end of the month Grace will start T-ball- but then that's it- I'm done. Then, the baby will be here and just keeping my head on straight will be a challenge, I'm sure!

On Tuesday ,Tristin had field day so the girls and I went over for 40 minutes to watch. He did great & got 5th place. The problem was- it was kind of hot and I got sun burned of course. Seroiusly, my skin is terrible! Here's to my upcoming farmers tan! Can't wait! On Tuesday I also got Grace regestered for Kindergarten! She is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ready. The girl reads like crazy. Kid books, scriptures, church manuals- anything. It's awesome. And weird. And super. She will do great, I know- she'll be like daisy in class, helping all the other kids with stuff!

So, the dreams have been crazy- still. One night it was mass destruction, end of the world stuff. Another dream Trav was losing his job. There are a few I can't remember- but yesterday's dream tops the chart I think! In my dream there was this super hot actor with his shirt off. (Don't worry!) His muscles were A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I mean, completley beautiful. Like something sculpted straight from God himself. I was stunned and in love and I told him straight to his face that he had the most amazing muscles on earth. But I kept going. I told him about 100 times how great he looked, how breathtaking the sight was, how beautiful he was and on and on I went. Well, I must have thought too many "impure thoughts" because the next thing I knew I woke up to the sound of myself yelling at the top of my lungs over and over. I had the worst leg cramp in the world and my left calf was as hard as a rock. All I could do was yell "ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch" like a bazillion times. Tristin dashed in my room and said, "Mom, what is wrong?" Through the pain and tears I said, "My leg. My leg. My leg" (The poor kid thought I was having the baby right there in my room, and honestly, it sounded that bad!)My leg was all contorted and all I could do was yell and wait for the muscle to relax. I minute or two later, it did- but holy cr*p- it was awful! After it was done and I was put back together I laughed at the situation and how God must have been paying me back for all my naughty thoughts about Mr Amazing. So I vowed & promised to the Lord, I would never admire another man with his shirt off again!I guess sometimes we get what we deserve!(The sad part is, my calf kills every time I walk. It's So sore, I made Trav rub it last night!)

Well, we survived the yard sale. I'm not sure if we completely over do it every single time- but they honestly kick our butts! They are SOOOOO exhausting! Normally I'm picking up tons of friends stuff, tons of tables from everyone on the planet, setting up their stuff, collecting their money, then cleaning up, delivering their stuff back, with their tables and dropping off money- but this time I didn't. I just didn't have the energy like normal. We did get Lisa's furniture packed in the truck and hauled over- but that was about it this time. We had a lot of fun even though we got hit with a CRAZY wind & rain storm the first day. We did well in the morning- so it wasn't that bad. I made enough to get my next blog book and I'm SUPER excited!!! I love hanging out with my sweet Angie, but honestly, that's my last sale for the year!
