Good News!!

So my husband and I decided it was time for another baby. If you read my mom's blog you already know WE'RE PREGNANT!!! I should be due sometime around mid-October. But don't worry, I'm not letting this interfere with my workouts.....I went to the gym yesterday morning and actually made it through the class without feeling like my arms and legs we're going to fall off. I was even feeling ambitious and added more weight to my bar. Um yeah, well my butt is burning today. But, no pain no gain right?

First Time For Everything

My husband and I are in the middle of a few little home improvement projects, one of which is finishing our basement. After a long 12 hr shift at work, the only thing on my mind was a hot shower. I have this rule that I must wash the hospital cooties off of me as soon as I step in the door. I don't even touch my husband or daughter until I am germ free. Yesterday was a particularly yucky day at work and the shower was calling my name. I came home to find my loving husband and his father working away tirelessly on the basement. I was soo excited to see the progress as work was held up for weeks (football season). Anyway, I was just about to go back upstairs when Josh said "Oh, you're not gonna be able to shower yet the water's off." Deep breath! "Ok," I said, "for how long?" "Not too much longer" he promised and I headed upstairs to sit on a stool until I could get in. About a half hour later I almost fell of the stool when the water came on full blast in the kitchen. YES!!! Relief. I was seconds away from the steps when my mom calls. Ok I though I've waited this long, I might as well have a short conversation. While on the phone I hear a horrible sound coming from the basement. "What was that," she asked. "I don't know, I have to go," I said. I went downstairs to find a pipe had burst and my husband and his father mopping up the mess. "Well I guess we're not plumbers" my husband said and then I realized the shower was slipping further and further away. It was now going to be at least a couple of hours until I could get in. My heart sank, I was exhausted and I couldn't even sit on the couch. I lay on the floor at the foot of the steps when I had and idea. There was bottled water in the garage!!! What if I heat it up and use it. So I did. Yes I took 4 bottles of Aquifina poured them in to a pan and heated it up. I then carefully took it up to my bathroom and proceeded with a bird bath. I was cold, but clean and better yet could now put on my pajamas and slip into bed. I guess know I how my sister survives in Africa.
