I am going insane. It has been raining none stop since Thursday. Our back yard looks like a lake. And...it isn't supposed to stop raining until later this week. I am not usually one to complain about rain, I love rainy days. They make everything look so green and I can get lots of stuff done around the house. I think what is actually making me so miserable is how miserable my children are. I have run out of movies for them to watch, run out of computer games for them to play and run out of art project ideas. I am coming to my wits end. Does anyone have any suggestions???

I hate waiting. I am the most impatient person on the planet. July 12th is not that far off, but I want to have the baby now! I have this stack of new baby clothes, I am dying to use...I am dying to know how big she is, what color eyes she will have...will she have red hair? I am dying to get labor over with...will it be easy? Will my water break on its own? Will she be healthy and happy? I need to know these things right now, NOT in 3 weeks. Argh! I don't think I have ever been so restless before the end of a pregnancy like this before.

Does anyone else have exceptionally bizarre thoughts about how there babies will come out when they are pregnant? The night before last I woke up at about 2:30am...Audrey was kicking me like crazy. As I lay there feeling her kick I realized that she has this thing for the right side of my tummy, I mean it is totally, completely the only side I ever feel her moving on. I lay there thinking...hmmm, I wonder why she never goes to the Left side of my tummy, I don't remember any of my other babies ONLY liking one side of my tummy, that is really weird. After about an hour of trying to push her over to the left side of my tummy (with no luck) I started to get paranoid...what if there is something wrong with the left side of my uterus, what if I have a giant tumor that is keeping her strictly prisoner to one side, oh no what if she is paralyzed on one side of her body, or her limbs stopped growing and now she can't reach the other side of my tummy. Needless to say my sick imagination went into overdrive. At about 5:30am, with no sleep and puffy eyes, (by this point I was actually crying because I was positive there was something dreadfully wrong with my baby), I decided to get up and check the computer, I googled every thing I could about fetal movement...I love google. After about an hour of nothing I found something about how near the end of the pregnancy babies often choose one side of there mother's womb that is more "comfy" for them. They put there back to the one side with there head down and you only feel movements on that one side. OH MY GOSH, I WAS SO RELIEVED. I went back to bed and realized what a complete idiot I am. I can't believe I wasted 4 hours of sleep over something so silly. The funny part is since yesterday I have felt Audrey moving on the left side of my tummy a hundred times...I'm sure she was moving over there the whole time and I am just a complete weirdo.

Yesterday I was in the mood for a drive, so I talked Jeff into driving down to Chincoteague, VA (our favorite beach spot). It takes about 45 minutes to get there so the sun was starting to set by the time we arrived. It was beautiful. Sometimes I really miss the grandeur and beauty of the mountains out west, but I have to say that living near the beach is just as cool. The kids had a blast playing in the sand and getting their feet wet, and Jeff and I took some great pictures... Enjoy! Oh, and as a bonus I have included a picture of me, about to burst, which should amuse or disgust you, not sure which.

Am I crazy or is this the fastest moving year ever??? I cannot believe it is June. Anna only has one more week of school left. I'm pretty sure I am happy about that (feelings may change after a week or two of sibling rivalry all day long). It will be so nice to sleep in a little and not have to worry about schedules as much. I am hoping to get to the beach a few times before the baby gets here. I know once she comes fun in the sun will have to wait until next summer.
