This weekend...

was uneventful. Well, that's not really true. All of George's siblings were in town and it was quite the event! We had a huge egg hunt, visited, played games and ate tons of good food (including these fabulous chocolate eggs that are a Jones family tradition).

But my belly was uneventful. In fact, I got worried that perhaps the baby wasn't moving very much, but then I realized with everything going on, I probably just didn't notice. I go to see the doctor tomorrow and I am technically not due until Wednesday. I am sure she will let me go over if that's what I want. But she would be happy to induce if that's what I want. She is very easygoing. If you ask me at night, I am dying to be induced (oh, to just lay on my back!) but during the day, I just want to hold out and go all natural.

The one thing that I would like to avoid is another Sunday at church. I wore makeup yesterday just to avoid the "Oh, you look so tired!" comment. It didn't work. I just want to yell, "Of course I am tired! I have to go to the bathroom every hour through the night. I have 3 kids, 4 and under. I am carrying around a hundred pounds more than I would like. And I am growing a baby, here! Would you like to trade places for a day and see how tired you are?" I know that people don't mean anything, but I would LOVE for someone to come up to me and say, "Wow, you look fabulous!" THAT would make me smile! :)

You know, even after having the baby those tired comments won't stop coming. I'm sure you know that, though, with 3 kids so young. I get that ALL the time. And now people are following up with, "So, are you guys going to start trying for a girl soon?" Yeah, you just told me how horrible I look and you want me to add MORE to my plate?? I don't think so!!

I would like to hear more about these "fabulous chocolate eggs" from the Jones family. And a recipe, if possible. I can't have enough chocolate recipes! ;)

If I was there I would try to tell you look fabulous. I feel you on the tired... I never feel rested. I always feel like I could use two or more hours of sleep. My problem is mostly school demands...but hey I filled out the paperwork to grduate so soon It will just be work, kids, house and hubby. Yeah...mark the day June 13, 2008...I will be done.

I'm sorry Anna for any and all of my tired comments. For what it's worth, I think you looked fabulous at the chili cook-off. And I'll stop asking you how your feeling, I'm sure you'll let me know if you feel any different.

Do you have to marry into the Jones' family to get some of those fabulous eggs?

As long as you're not rushing to the hospital, would you like to have another play date and/or a girls night with Becca?
