Mom's here!!

This morning I got to sleep in a little bit and then I got ready to pick my mom up from the airport! She flew in from Ohio to spend some time with Chad and I and to help out after Brynn arrives... and with my luck, she'll be inside of my belly until 2008!!

Inside my mom's one suitcase, she managed to fit about 20 books from when I was little, along with a big photo album, a baby blanket and a bunch of memorobilia from when I was growing up. Needless to say, her suitcase was 66lbs and she had to pay an overweight fee!!

So far, mom has offered to cook everything and everything... and I can't fit that much in my belly anymore!! I'm telling you, there's no room in there. We stopped at a local sandwich place and met Chad for lunch after I picked her up. I haven't been to this place for a while and have been craving it. Normally, I could eat 1/2 of this sandwich plus some chips. Well today, I could only eat 1/4 of the sandwich and no chips. So, like I said... there's no more room left... and she just keeps growing!!

Tonight I'm making meatloaf and cheesy potatoes for dinner... then strawberries with angel food cake for desert! When we took the lamaze class last month the nurse that taught the class told us not to eat a big steak or anything with a lot of meat in it around our due dates because meat takes a long time for your system to digest and chances are, I'd end up throwing it up during labor, which means that Chad will too because he has such a sensitive stomach! So, do we want to take bets on tonight being the night that I'll go into labor JUST BECAUSE I'm eating meatloaf? I have been lucky enough to not get sick one time throughout this whole pregnancy but that would be my dumb luck.

Hmmm... maybe I'll try 2 tablespoons of that CASTOR OIL to clean myself out ahead of time!! Geesh.

P.S. Brenda - Chad was cracking up again at your comment that you put on that blog... He was laughing so hard it made me laugh, which caused my stomach to hurt!!
