Happy Anniversary

to my parents, my papa and my mommy.

My papa has been the best Dad ever, coming into my life when I was a teenager and always there for me. He walked me down the aisle and I will always love him dearly.

My momma sacrificed much of her life to raise her 3 children by herself until 1989 when she married my papa, after most of them were grown.

3 cheers for my parents. They are the best.

Going to look like I will be walking today with my outfit but the truth is, it wasn't on my agenda... maybe later if it stops raining.

Two songs came on the radio that I haven't heard in a while. makes me wish I had more access to my CDs so I could listen to them more often. Ventura Highway by America, and Union of the Snake by Duran Duran. Yes they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. For some reason they speak to different parts of my life.

Made some cookies this morning for hubby to take to Bop Bop. Now we have to work on our errands and get them done before nap time. Time rolls on too fast these days. 6 weeks until the eminent arrival of Miss Emily. Not much done. Someone is enjoying the Dora house set up in the living room. Now to get moving. At least the stuff we had to do this morning is already done.

Another walk and other blathering

it was about 1.2 miles and I did OK. it was definitely a stroll around Bryan Park. Beautiful flowers. I took pictures.

I really need to start walking every day. more so than I am now. it is as if it is in fits and starts. The worry is that a longer walk could bring on pre term labor symptoms. But i think as long as I do one or 2 miles I can stand 3.1 miles. I just need to be aware of the difference in how I walk... or waddle. luckily she is up very high so as long as I can get the kinks out, I don't waddle as much. but as the hips start spreading in these last 6-7 weeks it will be interest to see how it rolls. May 8th is the day and I look forward to doing the walk. I am not due for another 4 weeks after that. Doc said as long as it is not too hot.

Working on keeping my hydration levels up as well. very important, especially to keep plenty of amniotic fluid and give the girl plenty of room. Really hoping that my appointment on Thursday will go well. I look forward to it.

Now just focusing on eating well. not doing so hot of late. not enough greens. more sugar than normal... but it is what i am craving.

cravings... that's anothe story for another blog.

I took a nice walk yesterday. Not six miles, but it was a walk with MM and Michael. On the way we stop and saw some friends and have nice chat and it was really nice to see them, as I hadn't seen them in a while. Then the kids wandered and I had to chase them down... so my visit was abruptly cut short.. but that was ok.

I need to walk more to keep my strength up and to help me sleep better at night. So MM and I will have to start walking after dinner. it will be good for both of us.

hmmm good food that's cheap or expensive fast food?

I think I will choose cheap food from home and get something out for lunch... It would be too extravagant to do both.

Whole wheat toast with chunky peanut butter and banana.

And maybe some more coffee... :)
