Three more days until I go into "overtime." Do I get paid extra for that?

I had really hoped I'd be done by now but God's plan is always better than mine anyway.lol I've been having much more contractions and they are harder than what they used to be and I've lost my plug so I'm guessing it won't be too much longer.

I want to THANK all of you for your continued prayers and support! I feel so much more calm about having this baby knowing that I'm covered in prayer. What a blessing you all are!

I've been working on next years curriculum for the older kids. I'm thinking about gearing it more towards their gifts and interests. We'll see.

I had the day off yesterday! My mil took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese and then to her house to play. They all had a good time and went to bed easy last night.LOL I read a book and spent quite a lot of time on the computer trying to figure out what curriculum to use next year.

Today is supposed to warm up and if it does, we'll be heading outside. These little ones are going nuts in this cold weather! They can't seem to stay out long enough to wear themselves out when it's cold so hopefully the warmer weather will help.lol Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer and if it is, I'll see if mom wants to join me at the park. I don't feel comfortable being at the park alone but with company it should be fine.lol

Well, Jon is finally getting over his cold. He's still got the cough but I can tell he's feeling better. Unfortunately, my dh was not feeling well last night. I think that he's catching the illness but I'm praying that he'll get over it quickly and that I'll be spared this close to delivery. We just can't seem to stay well this year.

I guess that's it for now. I've been a little nervous about running around, so I haven't been up to much. I'm just completely bored!lolol

Dearest Lisa, I know just how you feel! My first two (boys) were born 5 days prior to their due date, my 3rd child (a girl finally!) was born 4 days prior to her due date (although I was induced to avoid delivering without a doctor which I did with #2 - I was at the hospital for 1-1/2 hours; he just didn't make it in time). When Carys didn't arrive prior to her due date, I was miffed! And totally done being pregnant! Just to show me, she was born exactly 18 minutes after her due date passed!

LOL! I've been late for each child except for Jon. I don't know why I got it into my head that this one would come before my due date, I think it is more wishful thinking, but I just feel done.LOL

I could see this little one doing just what Carys did. She'd fit right in here.lol

I was "late" for all but my first. I thought they'd all be early since he was, it was a rude awakening!

It sure does sound like you're getting close though losing the plug and all! Maybe tonight or tomorrow!

I do think your plan to gear the older kids curriculum to their interests for a year sounds like a wonderful plan. As haven't got high schoolers yet I hesistate to give thoughts and suggestions. I'm doing my own stressing about the pre-high school stage.
