Gabe is Coming Home!

Starting Monday morning at 8am, Spring Break is officially over :(

Gabe has been gone for the Big 12 Tournament and then to Philly for the NCAA's to cover Texas A&M...but he comes home tonight! I am so excited that he was able to experience all of that, but I have really missed him. I can tell you that I have grown up a lot being husbandless for almost 2 weeks! The amazing thing is that I survived! I created a blog, cleaned the garage, learned how to sell on Craig's List, did our taxes, went to the Dr. all by myself, had my ring tightened and straighten (for free...they always made Gabe pay...hehe), registered at the hospital, called on an error with our car loan (if you know me at know I HATE to make phone calls...even for pizza!), worked on our finances, cleaned the litter (Gabe always does it with me being pregnant) and fed myself (Gabe usually takes care of my breakfast and lunch...I am so spoiled). The biggest praise is that I wasn't scared at night either! I think it helped that I had my parent's dog and our dog, Camie, to protect me :)

I tried to rest as well. I know I will never have a week all to myself again...but that's ok...we're ready to give that up to be parents :)

Not only was Gabe gone, but my mom is in Wisconsin and my dad is in Africa. How did I get stuck here while everyone else traveled? :)

I can feel Ella's movements everyday. It's so comforting to know that she's in there moving around. I am a little over 29 weeks...the countdown is on....11 weeks to go!
