It's amazing how we've put all of this stuff in our new building all in one day and it's taken me three days to go out and pull some of the stuff right back into this house. Ha! I guess everything was so fast, being packed up and shipped out that I didn't realize until later, I would need some of the things that I just packed away. Oh well, isn't that how it goes.

After we went to Babies R Us yesterday and got a couple of the last items, I need before baby boy gets here, I feel so much more relaxed and at ease. These past few days, I've been washing up baby clothes, sanitizing bottles & pacifiers. I've also started packing a little bag. You know, just in case. I plan on taking it easy the next few days and wait around.

Maryann came over Saturday and helped me clean the rest of the house, where I can't reach like ceiling fans. It was great to have her come by and help out like that, plus we got a chance to do a little sister bonding. Later that night, Kevin came over and we grilled out some hamburgers. Maryann was telling me how she would like to take a few computer lessons now that she has Fridays available. I offered to show her some things with the computer, but it is up to her. So, next Friday she is suppose to come by and let me show her how to make labels for Whitney's shower/wedding invitations. I know she's had a couple of questions with Windows Excel that maybe I can help her with as well. I actually appreciate someone using me because it will keep my mind sharp on my computer skills. I told Doug, I'm afraid that one day I'll forget all that I know.

Sandy called me this morning and made a great suggestion. She would like for me to start a poll as to the baby's weight and length, when he arrives. I think that would be a great idea, on top of his delivery date. Actually, I don't know an easy way to start this poll. I've gotten a few predictions on the due date and one on the weight and length. If I begin a poll going by every one's predictions then there will be one vote for each. Hmm! I'll have to think about this one a little more. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

Glenn Beck
I'm loving Glenn Beck's new show on Fox Network at 4:00 CST. There are a lot of times when I feel so bad for him because he gets so emotional. He seems to really love God, Family and Country. I know when I listen to the news and hear all of these new bills and policies that Obama wants passed, it scares me to death. Often times, I wonder what country I'm living in and if there are others (citizens) out there feeling the same way I am. I know God will take care of me and my family, but I just hate to see the country that I love so much be swallowed up by satan. Last Friday, Glenn told his audience about how he received an email from a viewer. The concerned viewer asked Glenn if he was the only one that felt the same way, he did about our country. Glenn held a "town meeting" setting for all conservatives that are all concerned about all that's been going on with this new administration. He has a new website called "The 912 Project" for people to check out. I haven't had the chance to really view it, but didn't want to delay getting this information out to you. Click Here in order to view "The 912 Project" website.

I hope all of you will have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day tomorrow! Hopefully, the next time I blog I'll have something else to talk about other than babies. Ha! Sorry about that, but it seems to be the only thing on my mind right now.
