*Here is how my brain works lately...-"We need to call____", "OH, we also need to___", "I am so tired, I will just lay here on the couch and write a list of those things", "Hmmm....what can I eat while I make this list", "I need a root beer"...and so it continues.
*I get tired easily these days being 30 weeks pregnant and it is hard for me to rest when my body is telling me I need to. Michael is doing amazing at helping me do that though. I am thankful for him.
*The lists are getting insane. INSANE. From phone calls, to forms, to packing, to sorting, etc., etc...
*I went to my last OB appt. yesterday. I am now 30 weeks! Doc sent me with all my paperwork so I can take it with me to England. Pregnancy has gone well, I know I haven't blogged about it much...been a little busy I know. Baby boy moves a lot and likes to kick me right on my left hip bones. I told Michael I think I might end up with internal bruising from his jabs :) I have been more sick this go around, but not horrible. I have had round ligament pain (which I never had before) and the last few weeks I have been having indigestion like crazy every. single. night. It's fun, let me tell you.
*I do love to watch my belly move all around. It is probably my most favorite part of pregnancy. It is amazing to see how there's a real life baby in there making my belly move. I am amazed at our Lord every time I see and feel it. I mean really, it is incredible to me.
* We are now officially living out of luggage pretty much. Yesterday, we went ahead and packed up a good bit of our clothes (which we can still access out of our luggage), but needed to see if things were going to fit and how we were doing on weight. We are planning to take 6-7 checked bags and each bag can' go over 50 lbs. But we are trying to get each bag as close to that as possible to be efficient as well. Then we have 4 rolling carry ons and an assortment of backpacks and such as well.
* I cried last night at church. I actually had a good meltdown yesterday afternoon. I laid on our bed after packing my clothes and sobbed. It was more of an overwhelmed by so much to do and being pregnant and too tired to do it all sobbing. I don't like the chaos going on right now and I can't control it. The Lord is still working on me in terms of teaching me that I can't be in control all the time and have order, and that is ok. He is showing me I am just going to have to trust him and rest in him during the chaos and know that He will take care of us through this whole transition.
*Then I cried at church. I have held back tears the last 2 times we have worshipped at our home church. Then I had tears last night. I am going to miss our CPC family.
Maybe that is enough processing what is going on in my brain for now. This move is getting real and we are days away. I can't wait to get there in so many ways and settle into life in Culcheth. I can't wait to set up our home and make it warm and cozy and inviting. I can't wait to invite people over for dinner. I am also anxious to see SK make new friends in the village and start school in the fall...and anxious about having a baby there. I know the Lord will take care of all of my anxious thoughts. He can handle them, I know that.
I was reading Mark this morning and am feeling a bit like the daddy in Mark 9, when he says, "I believe, help my unbelief!" I cling to that and cry out the same thing this morning as my day begins. I struggle with my unbelief, but want so badly to believe. I need Jesus. I need lots of lots of Jesus right now.
Our shipment being taken...which should arrive a couple weeks after we get there.
The luggage line up. Well...some of the luggage at least.
