Grains of Gratitude

This has been a pretty slow week for us here; Sunday kind of snuck up on me! There wasn't much that happened this week, but I did find a few things, however small they may be, that I was grateful for:

1. I'm grateful I only had to wait about 10 min for my OB appt on Mon- nothing like that marathon time spent in the waiting room last week! Everything is still the same...I have an appt tomorrow so I'll find out if there has been any change.

2. I'm actually grateful that I'm still pregnant! There were some things I still wanted to get to around the house and I was able to do most of that last week. So now I think I'm ready for the baby to come any day now...and I find myself waking up every morning wondering "is today the day?"

3. I'm grateful I was able to take Kayla to the playgroup in town on Wed. We hadn't had a chance to go since before Christmas and she really enjoys it. It's nice to have since there isn't preschool on Wednesdays.

4. I'm grateful there wasn't much going on this week so I had the time to do what I needed with errands and organizing/purging things around the house (or nesting, but really, it was stuff that had to be done regardless of a new baby coming!)

5. I'm grateful for the nice day out today; it's in the low 70s. We took Kayla to the playground for awhile. I'm glad Joe is home though so he could run around with her and do the things with her I'm just not capable of right now! He's going to grill some steaks for dinner, they've been marinating overnight, so they should be quite tasty!

Hope everyone has a great week!

I had a slow week too and had a hard time coming up with stuff for my GOG post. :) Sounds like you had a pretty mellow week though.

Glo said...

For a slow week you had a great list. I come by every day hoping to see baby pics....soon very soon we will....Feb 12th sounds good to me.

LauraJ said...

I hope there's some sort of secret spice in the steak that'll put you in labor! :D Enjoy the steaks!!

Hey stop by my blog. I've given you an award!

Thanks for sharing the small things! They are so important. I'm jealous...I waited 40 minutes for my OB this week! Enjoy these quieter days.

I enjoyed reading your blog and plan on adding you to my favorites list. Its amazing how an uneventful week can turn into a wonderful week! Thank you for sharing

Cate said...

I get very excited when I see you have a new blog post. Not that a birth announcement will be your first priority, I'm sure, but some time soon.

(Grilled steaks and 70 degrees sound SO good to me right now -- it's 10 out here, with wind chills of -10. And snow.)

Laura said...

Oh Michelle, you are getting so close! I am so excited for you, Joe and Kayla! Can't wait for the big announcement! Anyway, just wanted to wish you "Good Luck", before the big day!

Also, LOVING the pictures below. You have such a beautiful family!

Kerry said...

I loved the end of the pregnancy - time to relax and just take each day as it comes, because you don't know if it's your last day of quietness or not! LOL Im glad Joe is there to make it an easy transition :)

Once Upon a Dream... said...

Have a great week!

Shelley said...

I am glad you had a good week - I hope this one is good too. Take care.

Beck said...

Another beautiful list! You know, The Baby came a bit early and it was scary - we WERE NOT READY! Having enough time to be really prepared for this baby is a blessing.

Karen said...

I love that you see the sunny side of things - and remind me to do the same.

ooh marinated steaks!!

Great List!

Killlashandra said...

The nice weather was definitely excellent this past weekend. I took W.W. to the zoo on Saturday and we had lots of fun! He's forever asking to go to the park right now. :)

Barb said...

I'm sure you told me ages ago, Michelle, but I can't remember exactly what your due date is. Sounds like it's right now.

Krissy's due date is March 11th but they don't want her to go into labor so she's scheduled for her c-section on March 3rd.

She spent the whole weekend doing what you did - purging and cleaning and trying to get a little ahead of it all before the baby comes.

Any day now...exciting for you!

Mike said...

Any day now, huh? Great days ahead and more blessings to come.

And happy Valentine's.

Great list! I was up in the night (couldn't sleep some) and found myself praying for you regarding the labour and everything. So just saying hi and letting you know you are in our prayers. Emma still has Kayla's card by her bedside and says to me "She's my friend!" so cute.

Renee's Reading Corner said...

Wonderful list! Both my kids were two weeks early which was good because I am not very good at being patient. Best wishes to you all! I'll be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dori (Aviva's mommy) said...

It is nice to have a slow week and be able to relax. How are you feeling?

The Adoption Of William said...

Low 70s.......Lucky. It is a lovely, balmy 2 degrees here. Love the list!!


Blessings,

William's Mom

Kathleen Marie said...

Sometimes those slow weeks are kind of nice and pretty soon you'll be up and running... so to speak. I am just so happy for you and for Joe and Kayla...So happy Joe is home to share this with you!

Tarrah said...

Oh how your #5 sounds like paradise right now. It is way to cold for liking right now and we're supposed to have another snow storm tomorrow.

I'm longing for days in the sun at the park and grilling some steaks.

joan said...

Hi Michelle,

Great grateful list! Glad you are able to slow down in these last few days before your baby comes. Take care.

Michelle said...

chelle said...

mum2brady said...
