The last time...

Husband and I have had a terrific day. Well, I take that back. I've had a terrific day, and Husband might be pretending to have one. He humored my need to get some shopping done "just in case" I don't get the chance to get back to Costco some time in the next 5 weeks. But - before we stepped foot in Costco we braved the Chandler Fashion Square Mall parking lot and finally saw the movie Twilight. It was great - some of the special effects were a little silly, but it was great.

Costco, like always, was a terrible mess. I'm not sure what I was expecting given that this is the biggest shopping weekend of the year. We loaded our cart up with all the necessities (dog food, toilet paper, paper towels, zip lock bags, garbage bags, laundry detergent... etc) and then after deciding we didn't want to spend $9 on an 8 million pack of Q-tips, we made a stop off at Target so we could spend $4.50 on 750 of them instead, lol.

I allowed myself to get lost in my thoughts on the way home, and a few things occurred to me. First - woah - 35 weeks pregnant. Technically Michael can come at any time now and it wouldn't be any sort of disaster. Yeah - he should probably hang out another 2 weeks, but I think I'm ready to start wishing for him to be here. Other things that occurred to me is that we will probably never have a day like this again - or at least we won't have very many more. You know - just picking up after sleeping in until 10:00 am on a Saturday... heading to see a movie and then spending the afternoon shopping. Nope. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to sleep in until 10:00 am again, lol.

Yeah, life is definitely about to change. But I'm ok with that. I'm ready for that. Because even though things will be different, I know that the adventure we are about to embark on is going to be the most meaningful and happiest time of our life.

  1. Sounds like a great day! I don't know that I contemplated things like this right before my first was born. I'm sure I did, but those memories were lost with the placenta (half your brain is lost with the placenta just so you know. Ha!).

    I do remember coming home with her the first day and wondering "what do we do now? What's the next step?" Very odd, but we quickly fell into a routine.
