Operation Induce Labor

Happy Wednesday to everyone! 39 weeks today and counting! I couldn't feel LESS like I was about to have a baby if I tried! No pains, no cramps, no nothing today to indicate that a baby might be on the way! :) I'm posting so late tonight but the day sort of got away from me. I went and met Deaner for a really late lunch at the PX because he is in a conference all week long. When I got home I started some homemade spaghetti sauce to make lasangne for dinner. Deaner requested it and I figured I should make it completely from scratch if I was going to do it. I also decided to make two while I was at it and freeze one for after the baby comes. It turned out really well and I was happy with it.YUM!! However along the way I had to do something really ghetto. I made the second lasangne in the smallest pyrex I had but it still didn't fit into my gallon size ziplock bag that I was planning on sealing it in. So I had to improvise. I put one ziplock on one end and then a second one on the other end and sealed it with MAILING TAPE!I think it is ghetto fab and that it will work out just fine! Sometimes you have to use your brain! :) Dinner turned out delicious and I am nice and stuffed!

Backing up a little bit and in reference to my post title today I have decided to do everything that I can to help get me a bit closer to giving birth. Today I made myself walk up in the vineyards for over an hour. I have to admit at the end I wasn't sure I was going to make it back but it was pretty nice and I am glad that I did it. I snapped these shots because the vineyards are starting to look really pretty before harvest.I am excited for all our parents to be able to see the vineyards while they look so gorgeous. At least Evans is coming at a pretty time of year. Unfortunately all I have to report is that my heels are killing me and I don't feel any closer to having a baby. I guess tomorrow I will just have to try a little bit harder! The weather is supposed to be nice for the rest of the week and weekend so maybe I can take advantage of it. I just hope it doesn't mean that it is going to get hot again.

That is about all for today. I have to go clean up the kitchen now. Sometimes I wish I had a cleaning robot.

Well Gleatie, I am glad to see you are up in the hills. Unfortunately you are going to be chapped about the Ole Miss overalls, as they arrived with the sctipt insignia and not Colonel Reb. The UVA ones look just great, at least. Your brother got into the business school and is working 20 hours a week. I know the latter news will excite you. Also, Philip Wood is going through rush at LSU this week. Wow, time marches on. Now, go have that fat baby.
