I'm enjoying reading everyone's Christmas and seasonal thoughts!
Today promised to be very busy, but some executive decisions were made to skip some "usual" things, such as AWANA. Micah is ready to give birth any time, and Adam and I had our work cut out for us to convince her to opt out of being in charge of the nursery for AWANA tonight. She can barely walk, much less chase a bunch of babies around! They also have her scheduled for the 19th! Good luck with that, folks!
Micah had her first "at home" visit with the midwife and doula. This was partly to figure out the logistics of a water birth here at home. Micah had hoped to have the baby in the new house, but, of course, construction timelines don't always cooperate. SO, it will be here in the mobile home, most likely. She seems to be okay with that at this point. She and Adam headed to Bemidji right after that appointment so she can get another chiropractic treatment. They took the kids with them, so I've got the afternoon and evening off, unless they can't get back in time to pick Audrey up at school, in which case I'll do that. Lots of schedule juggling going on!
With everyone talking about The Wind in the Willows I decided to get a Kindle copy (FREE!) to read until I can unearth my paper copy after I move. I've also watched The Man Who Invented Christmas a couple of times and I decided I would like to read the original version of A Christmas Carol. I found that for Kindle, also. (99 cents!) So, I look forward to two more good books. I'm not sure I've ever read A Christmas Carol! I always watch the really old, black and white version of the movie, made back in the '30's or '40's, so I'll see just how close it is to the original. :)
I'll run home now. I'm still at Micah's taking advantage of the silence to post this. (They left about an hour and a half ago.) My car has been running and warming up for far too long, lol.
God bless us, every one!
