1) I have the teeny-tiniest little tulip sprouts in my front yard. I can't wait to see the tulips in full bloom!! Yay - it looks like my first attempt at gardening is going to be a success.
2) Not watching TV for lent is going to be much more difficult than I thought. I've realized I'll probably be reading a lot of books, so if you have any suggestions please let me know.
3) Last weekend I got to have another ultrasound. Our local crisis pregnancy center is in the process of training a new ultrasound technician and needed pregnant women to practice on. I was more than happy to volunteer :) I got to see baby Rayel again and this time we got a "profile view" picture (we only got front views at my earlier ultrasound).
I think it's also significant to mention that of the 36 ultrasounds they did last year 31 of the mothers decided to keep their babies! How amazing is that? What a blessing it will be to have another trained technician so they'll be able to offer ultrasounds to even more women.
4) Last weekend I also took Will to this huge baby sale. Bad idea. Lots of women looking for a good deal and my husband do not mix. At least I was able to find some stuff for the baby at reasonable prices :)
5) I didn't babysit on Monday like I usually do. This made me nearly miss adoration on Tuesday. For some reason if anything other than my "normal" routine happens on Monday my whole week is thrown off. Thank goodness Will was there to remind me!
6) Peanut butter and chocolate is the best food combination ever.
7) I would first like to say that there was some competition for my favorite Facebook status of the week. I was choosing between four different statuses, but my favorite Facebook quote of the week goes to a friend who lives in DC. It rained a lot yesterday and I loved Oregon Trail as a kid. This was her Facebook post after her morning commute. Elizabeth said:
"Had to ford several rivers on my way into work this morning. Proud to say I didn't lose a single ox."
The comments were also quite entertaining to read:
1) "Any dysentery?"
2) "better change that pace to grueling if you want to get to oregon."
3) "Did you notice anyone wandering off?"
4) "Joseph is drowning in a river. Would you like to retrieve him? No. Would you like to buy supplies? No. Would you like to hunt? Yes. You have shot a 200 lb. Senator. Would you like to eat? No. Would you like to hunt? Yes."
