Wednesday Rambles

We got back on Saturday from a week in Phoenix.  It was a great trip, as it always it.  Luke always talks and talks about how he wants to live there when we visit (too bad there is no oil and gas there).  I should post about our trip and some pictures, but the memory card is too far from me at the moment to get it, so time for some rambles instead.

A.  It has been a LONG couple of days, after doing so much walking and lifting of a 30+ lb 2-year-old my sciatic nerve or something has been causing me a lot of pain.  I went to the chiropractor yesterday, and am going back tomorrow to hopefully find some relief.  I feel like I have a pretty high pain tolerance (I did deliver Tracen au natural) but this has had me in tears dozens of times since Sunday, maybe the pregnancy hormones are also affecting my emotions.

B.  Poor Tracen has had to deal with me not being about to do much, and when I have and it has ended in tears, he has been so sweet, giving me kisses and hugs and wiping my tears from my eyes.  I am grateful that we purchased a few new puzzles to help keep him busy.

C.  After waiting as long as we could, we have to get our Utah drivers license.  I had to take a written test yesterday, and now a driving test.  It is giving me anxiety.  I know I have had my license for a long time, but it is still freaking me out.

D.  I am 33 and a half weeks pregnant - with SOO much to do (and this pain is not helping me).  I need to finish painting the crib, then attack a glider we picked up for $30, make some freezer meals, etc etc... the list is never-ending and literally keeps me awake at night.

Way back in 2013 - Our summer vacation

When I did the review of the year and remembered that I never really did any blog posts about our summer vacation last year (and celebration of graduating) I felt sad.  I had intentions of making a video of our trip, and so last night I finally did.  I didn't spend a huge amount of time on it, but I wanted to have something, so here it is:

I am not sure how to embed the video into my blog... so you will have to click on the link
