This year's fourth of July was different from what I was used to..
First off, it was Sunday and I wore sweat pants. Yes, sweat pants. I wanted to go to church, but I knew there were a lot of stairs and I didn't feel comfortable attempting any of them. Once my mom gets here, I'll run up and down them as much as I want.. but not yet.
I read my devotions, said my prayers, and felt a closeness to God alone in my room. It was special actually.
So, I wore my sweat pants and read magazines and watched pointless television while everyone else went to church. I must have done well occupying myself because it didn't seem like they were gone long.
After church we enjoyed a yummy dinner of ribs, bratwurst, coleslaw, potato salad, and beans. It was super delicious! I ate as much as I could and I still had so much food left on my plate. I was bummed I couldn't eat it all.
After dinner (and some before) the boys went out to play with their annoying firecrackers. I hate those things. Pointless noise and no pretty colors! Anyways..
By 10:30 we enjoyed the city's fireworks. They were so pretty! I love fireworks. After the beautiful finale we enjoyed fireworks of our own.
My sister-in-law brought blankets and pillows out to the front yard and I got to enjoy the fireworks with the rest of the family. I really enjoyed being out of the house and getting some fresh air. And get this- no contractions!
I have a new outlook on this bed rest thing..
I only have 15 days left to make sure my house is ready for my family- including my great-grandmother, and the guest of honor- Zoe Isabella. Thinking that way, I feel like I have no time to get anything done! I have a feeling this will make my days fly a little better. It's worth a shot. :)
My great-grandmother sends family e-mails almost every night. She is very excited to meet our little bundle of joy. She's made sure to ask if we have a rocking chair because she would love to rock her great-granddaughter to sleep while she's here. I can't wait to witness those memories!
Today I am going to watch Gone With the Wind for the first time! Great time killer!
