Just a normal Monday at our house. I keep thinking about how tomorrow is APRIL 1ST and that's one step closer to it being May. And that's almost June. And at the end of June is when this whole escapade will come to a great big exciting finale. And she'll be here. And we'll all cry tears of joy. Until then, I'm taking it one day at a time.
In the meantime, I have been humbled lately at the problems that I DON'T have. I am pregnant, I have a sore back, I'm not lookin' too sexy, my house is not clean, I miss my family a bit... And those are my problems, for the most part. Well. My neighbor has five kids. And lives in a two bedroom townhouse. She has five kids and is pregnant with her sixth baby. She's due in April which is... um.. now. The other night her husband got arrested because he violated his probation (I don't know any details). When I drove them to the car dealership the other day, they failed to mention it:) Alright, people, now SHE'S got problems. Big ones. They both work, so who's going to watch all those kids while he's in jail? And is he going to be there when his baby is born? Her middle two daughters are less than a year apart and are both flunking first grade. I don't live in the nicest area of this town, but I didn't expect that my nice Puerto Rican neighbor, (the one with the tattoos) who has four daughters and one son and loves them dearly, would get arrested. The arrest happened right in front of our house with four cop cars and handcuffs and lots of yelling and crying. Come on, where is the LOVE? Just another reason why I am a very lucky lady. I've got a great life, and I need to remember that more often.
