Very no-stress for us, which is tip top. T-11 days to signing and not a SINGLE box is packed. My mom shows up this week, so hopefully we'll get some stuff done while she's here. Part of the thing is that there's no rush - our house isn't on the market at the moment and we're not moving into the new house immediately. But yeah - we need to get on it.
I've never gotten to try Matza.
I did go to Israel my senior yr of HS, and oh, the food. We stayed on a kibbutz, oh, the tomatoes and cucumbers, and the bagels. Good thing I'm eating cottage cheese. And ice cream.

Maggirayne- how are you? how's babe/house/preggo-ness? any news?
I am suffering complete shutdown as a result of my class being done. I mean complete. Although the suffering part is relative. And my house is approaching something resembling clean.
Heh, I realized I have 6 1/2 weeks before baby is here--and this place is seriously wrecked.
Baby's been kicking like mad the last week. But is head down and so heartburn has gone away!
: And I started (finally) going to the chiro--oh my word--I feel so much less tense. And she did the Webster, which my midwife said he(?) was LOP last visit, but I kept feeling kicks on my cervix. But that made the round ligament pain go away!
: My back spasms are getting better.
I am so excited to have a homebirth.
Our trip to TX went great--Elisabeth flew great, was a wonderful traveler. I got several compliments. It's called constant distraction/toys/snacks. But she is easygoing. Granted, some kids aren't distracted so easily.

So we decided I could take the class after next.
joyfulmom- did you have a discussion with your supervisor? I'm glad Maggirayne had some useful advice for you!
Heh, the question is, did it actually help?
We had Easter last weekend--I ate waaaay too much candy!
Ah, 6 weeks, now that's a doable bit, not a monstrous chunk. I dream of starting midwife classes. But when I'm going to have at least two more kids--I think. . . eh. I'll have to wait a few unless DH decides to be a SAHD. But I don't like the idea of being *the* breadwinner.
Actually, this is an ADD question I've sorta pondered and connected, but never asked anyone else--well, duh, not just do you start a project and get tired, but a job, after the newness wears off and it becomes just routine, do you get tired of/hate it?
Teaching became like that--but then I was drowning and had next to no support. School became just hard. Any job after awhile.

Today i have to go grocery shopping, then I'm hoping to make it to a playgroup park day, cuz it's been a while and I need some adult interaction, then this evening after dinner and cheesecake I have to work at church for their special Easter service (I'm a paid nursery worker), and hopefully tonight I can go buy Easter stuff. Tomorrow we have a date night to celebrate our 8 year anniversary...if i don't get Easter stuff tonight I'll have to go tomorrow afternoon before date night. oy.
Happy Anniversary! Yum, cheesecake!
Hope you feel/get better. Hit the garlic and the Vitamin C. I take 4-8 a day of each. It makes a huge difference for me.
