Good Gravy in the Mornin'!

I don't know whether or not to ever go back home. This is how it goes, Seth and I sike ourselves up to getting in the car and driving over to our house to check and see if the power is still on. We have been doing this since the power went out Wednesday morning. Each time so far, we have pulled into a neighborhood of deserted houses. This morning was yet another terrible let down. So now, I think it best to never go back so I don't have to be so disappointed. . . and mad!!! Seth went to the office and explained how desperate we were to have power. How they had told us 2-5 days and today is day 6, how his wife is a week from her due date and we can't bring a baby back to a dark, freezing house, yadda yadda. We were told that they were "working in the area" today. So, what does that mean? It probably means that they were trying to appease Seth enough to leave the office calmly and that was the greatest thing they could think of to say. Why am I being so pessimistic??? I am just ready to be back home!!! Thankfully our friends Josh and Lisa have been gracious enough to let us stay in their home. They have a lot going on this week and I know that having live-in's is probably not what they envisioned, but they have been so nice to give us a warm place to stay. Thank you guys!!!

On the baby end of things, tomorrow is my 39 week check up. I don't think I have had any signs of labor. They will check and see if I am dilated at all and whatever else they do. I am excited to go since I missed my 38 week check up. I am hoping this one will be my last one (if the power comes back on!) I am so ready to meet this little guy and to not feel like a beluga whale walking around, and I will be especially excited when I can roll over in the bed without having to get up on all fours! I have forgotten what it feels like to not have 7 pounds hanging onto the front of your stomach and 43 extra pounds all over the rest of my body! I am enjoying my last few days of cheese burgers and ice cream because I have already committed myself to much healthier eating once I have incentive, and that incentive will be having this baby! Anyone have any baby weight losing tips? For now I am over and out.

Yours Truly,
Out of my house, without a paddle

I know how you feel! Jeremy and I were not able to go home for a week because our road was icy and we couldn't make it to the top. Plus, our heat broke and the pipes broke! I also feel your pain about turning over at night. It's so hard!! Don't worry we only have 1 more week!!

I've heard that breast feeding is one of the best ways to lose weight after having a baby... also, I would say water, and try to keep active, though I know that's harder to do during recovery. I'm sure you can do it though! And congrats again on the little man!
