Greetings from the pregnant insomniac. I awoke at 2:30am for my normal bathroom run and couldn't get back to sleep- now it is 4:20am... Will we see a baby today? No contractions, just insomnia. Anyway, a cracker, a forkful of peanut butter and a sudoko puzzle later, here I sit, smelling the odor of a skunk who must have wandered by outside.
Well, yesterday was April Fool's Day. For a joke Dennis and I decided to call my mom and tell her that we had a baby girl! Dennis did the talking to make it more convincing. He told her that we named her Olivia Patricia. My mom really, really dislikes the name Olivia and isn't afraid to let me know whenever the topic of names comes up (you can even look at her comment on the last blog for proof). But her response was quite gracious, "Ohhhh, how nice." Hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa! Oh, it was so funny. Fortunately she thought so too after we confessed. :) Thanks for the laugh, Mom.
The next April Fool's type event of the day was a joke on us! We were driving to church in our van when we ran out of gas right on the busiest street in town. We puttered as far as we could and then stuck it in neutral while poor Dennis pushed the van off the road into a nearby parking lot. At the last moment two people jumped out and helped him finish pushing. Then he had to hike to the nearest gas station and haul back a tank of gas. Poor guy! Some people we know were passing by and picked him up on his way back to the van. We were laughing at ourselves for letting this happen so close to when the baby comes! Can you imagine if that had happened on the way to the hospital?! Thank You, Lord!!!
Since next Sunday is Easter I dressed the girls up yesterday- I'm not sure what will be happening next Sunday!
