This week feels a bit nuts.
I really shouldn’t complain as it hasn’t even really started, yet; but I know where it’s headed.Â Jon is doing sound all week for a conference, and while it’s decent money for a weeks worth of work, it’sÂ hard week on our family.
It sucks even more ’cause this year they started the conference on the Victoria Day Monday Holiday.Â Last year, the holiday was the day after everything wrapped up, and it was so nice to have a day off.Â This year, I had the kids at home all by myself, and Jon was gone, and well…….it was just a rough day.
I’d like to think that I’m further ahead of “things” than I was was this morning, but I’m not entirely certain of that.Â I have a full day tomorrow, and am hoping to pop in to see Chris on Wednesday.Â The trip in and out is always a big deal.Â I don’t mind it so much, but it jsut really takes up your day.Â Thursday, and Friday I’m helping out a friend, and then I have to survive Saturday by myself with the kids, and then Sunday is crazy busy with both Jon and I involved, and well…then we start another week, and I already have Monday and Tuesday booked up of that week, and will probably want to go in to see Chris next Wednesday.Â I might just book off Thurday entirely, and so far I one appointment first thing on Friday morning.Â The only good thing about all of this is that by the time these next two weeks are done – I will be finished 30 weeks.Â Wow!Â We really are headed into the home stretch, and I still have SO MUCH to do.
We did manage to clear out the baby’s room, and scraped the first layer of filth off the walls.Â We still need to clean them really good, and then fill all the holes, and then paint.Â I also need to steam clean the carpet REALLY well!Â Then we just have to get some furniture to fill it up.Â I did hang some of the little clothes in the closet.Â SO CUTE!Â I really can’t wait until we have this little one.
I did hear a very sad story today though.Â The pastors of the church that the conference is renting came past the church today, and they had been at the hospital visiting with a couple who had just had a stillborn.Â It’s so sad.Â The baby was 11 days overdue, and moving around and everything seemed to be fine, and then it just stopped moving.Â The lady had the baby last night.Â It’s so hard to hear things like that.Â It doesn’t scare me, but it does make me wonder if they had induced 2 days earlier, would there have been a different outcome?Â Just like, if Nathaniel had been born at 25 weeks, and not just died, he could have been alive.Â I know that you can’t live in theÂ “what ifs” and “could have beens”, but sometimes it’s hard to not think the thoughts.
