The Final Countdown


I have been seriously slacking lately. 
On everything it would seem. 
I mean seriously!  

And guess what?!  

I DON'T CARE ONE BIT!

I know, coming from goal-oriented, multi-tasking Camie thats, well, unheard of.

We've been eating out.
We've been going to movies.
Thom and I even went out on a bona fide date...no kids!  (Thanks a MILLION to Reese and Steph!!)
This past weekend Thom and I both hung out in our bed all morning, just watching TV and playing on our respective electrical gadgets.
There's dishes to be done.
There's laundry to be folded and put away.
The baby's room has yet to be painted.
There's a million little household fixes that need to be done.
I am surprised at my sudden lack of anal retentiveness.
Usually I'd be up and lets go! We've only got a couple weeks until our lives turn upside down again and there's a million things to do and we don't have time or money and all other forms of freaking out.
But not this time.
It hit me yesterday as we were heading out to play with some friends and see a movie.

It's okay.

Let me repeat that for ya.

It's okay.

In fact, it's more than okay.
It's totally perfect and fine and awesome.
We're playing and spending time as a family.
We're bonding and playing and relaxing and doing fun things now.
I am so blessed to have good health and a mostly functioning body...pregnancy woes aside of course, that allows me to go out and do fun things.
I am so lucky to have two boys who adore their mama and love to just be in the same room as her.
I am also lucky to have a husband who works so hard at everything he does and tried his hardest to make my life easier.
And I am above and beyond blessed to have friends who keep me sane in this crazy preggo waiting game.  Ones who check in on me and make sure I'm alright and would basically do anything for me, of which I am SO undeserving.
I am just so glad to have this time.
Time with my husband.
Time with my kids.
Time with my friends.
I wish my family lived a little closer, 
but then again, 
that would make my life complete and  we can't have EVERYTHING we want, right?!
I am blessed.
I am thankful.
I am happy.
I am one of the luckiest girls on the planet.
