If it's true that nesting is a sign of labor, get ready! I've been in a mad panic all day to get things spic and span. I keep thinking of "just one more thing," and I think I'm driving HeRoos crazy. My second to last request before bed, is that he mop the floors. What a man- he's mopping now! I should get a picture of this rare event. :)
We enjoyed some fajitas on the back porch tonight (because I couldn't handle the smell of burned food inside).
I warned you that I blew up with this pregnancy. HeRoos measured my stomach today- ouch! In return, I measured his- ouch! Ouch! We are going to start an exercise program as soon as I heal after the birth. It's a good thing we enjoyed a shake from Jake's Over the Top tonight.
I got this at a recipe exchange and we LOVE it! There was almost WW III at our house last week when I came home to find no fajitas left for me. HeRoos is a smart man and made some for breakfast the next day. He is learning that you don't interfere with a pregnant woman and her food.
We've found that the longer it marinates, the tastier it is. Enjoy!
