Happy Anniversary to US (12 years) and…dum dum….baby’s due date!

If I asked anyone who has been married 12 (plus) years, surely they would say they cannot believe this much time has gone by, right? I mean, where has the time gone? Sure, we’ve done a bunch of fun stuff, have had ups (and downs) and have survived. Time has flown, although the days seem long sometimes, these years have definitely passed me by like the trees fly by while driving down the interstate.

Brian is my best friend, confidant and the person who annoys me the most. We have to be truthful, right? Well, now that I think of it, there are other people who annoy me more. In fact, I’m probably the “constant” if I had to be quite honest. In any event, he’s my buddy and I wouldn’t change the last 12 years for the world! I’ve known him almost half of my existence. Craziness!

And the other thing….baby Blaine is due today! Seriously! Today! If you’ve ever gone past your due date, you know how much that day can sort of haunt you. While you try to ignore it, the date sticks in your mind and since you’ve said it over and over so many times to your friends and family, you can’t get away from it. So here I am, about 3/4 of the way through the day and there is no inkling of this little booger making his appearance today. Not a single sign. Admit as I may that neither of my boys came before their due date. So why would I think this time was different? Maybe because my stomach is so large, so heavy and I just didn’t think my body could take it to the 26th of August. Well, I was very wrong!

Brian has been a God-send this pregnancy. Yes, everyone will say their husbands are wonderful and special, blah blah blah. But, seriously, we’ve had a week! A couple of friends have taken Troy for a few hours at a time and have brought us dinner which has been awesome. They may have felt sorry for us, who knows. But, I’ll take it! Justin has been sick for 7 days now. Troy was sick for 3 days this week. Brian traveled for work and lucky me got a virus of some sort from the boys. Loaded with congestion, coughing, achiness, sleepless nights, etc. I feel like I’ve been a complainer all week because I just haven’t felt good. Tylenol and Sudafed have helped a ton! Why didn’t I start taking it sooner? Yesterday and today I decided to rest as much as possible and it seems to have helped. It just isn’t my personality to be this way. But, with D-day imminent and unknown, I need to get as much rest as possible. Like training for a marathon!

Okay, off of my complaining fit. To Brian: I thank the Lord for you and how wonderful you’ve been. Cleaning, doing the yard, cooking, taking care of the boys, sleeping near Justin to take care of him in the middle of the night….many more things that I can’t remember right now. I’m thankful for them all. I cannot believe 12 years has passed. They have been so much fun. With the last three being the most exciting with these little boys gracing our lives. I love you!

ok, I know you'll want to slap me, because I'm stating the obvious...but don't you think God is allowing you to heal and rest and your boys get better before Blaine makes his appearance. I'm just saying. Enjoy this time. your rest and sleep will soon be an area where you are lacking. prayers going up for you!
