Full Moon Hocus Pocus

Another weekend down, no child has arrived. I am officially due on Wednesday and I don't think I need to express anymore how ready I am for Evans to make his appearance. I am heading to the doctor tomorrow and I am really hoping that all the walking in the vineyards has helped move this along. It nothing else works I am going to put all my eggs into the basket of tomorrow being a full moon. Hey, whatever works right?

This weekend was pretty relaxing and uneventful. Deaner and I went to Chili's in Ramstein AGAIN on Friday night. I'm sure we won't be able to go for awhile and it is nice to be out of the house for an extended period of time. Saturday early afternoon we went to the Wiesbaden wine festival for lunch again as well. It was pretty much a Groundhog's weekend! Saturday night we ate Mexican (which does not compare to the States but we have found a restaurant that is acceptable here!)and Sunday we lounged around and took our last swim in the Deaner Country Club. Sadly enough, I felt as though it was time to take the club down yesterday or else I'm afraid it would sit out there and get all gross once the baby comes. It is all drained and sitting outside waiting to dry out (of course it is raining) before it gets put in the basement for the winter. I will really miss the pool but I am relieved that it is down and handled. I'll look forward to swimming in it next summer with my son! (who may or may not be here by then).

Today I met Deaner for lunch at the base and then did a BIG shop at the commissary. I hate it when we run out of everything all at once because it makes our shopping A LOT more expensive. On the list today were essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, soap, water, deoderant, listerine, detergent etc etc. All the things seem to run out at once! Plus I had to pick up things for our guests that we don't typically buy like coffee and breakfast foods etc. I just want this baby to get here before they all arrive!

So, keep me in your thoughts tomorrow and say a little prayer that it is day! I am really hoping so!! I'm going to start my new Giada de Laurentiis spicy macaroni casserole recipe for dinner and listen to the new David Gray double CD that I just downloaded on itunes. I'm super sad to be missing him playing in Atlanta tonight alas, 5,000 miles is a little far to fly for a concert the week you are due with a baby! Later!

I don't know if you'll even get this, since I'm commenting a little bit after the fact, but if you're near Wiesbaden, you're also near Mainz, where I used to live. There's a pretty good Mexican restaurant there called Mexico Lindo - the owner is a Mexican-American guy from Texas, so the food is pretty authentic. It's walking distance from the Hauptbahnhof - you should give it a try!
