Nesting, Resting & Snuggling In The Comforts Of My Home

This has been a very busy yet slow and eventful week for me and my family. I mentioned in my last post that I couldn't wait to get home and boy am I glad to be here.
Friday evening started off rather off course due to the fact when I picked the girls up from after care, Sydnee was asleep on the couch with a burning fever. Poor child did not want to call me at work so she tried to tough it out at school and aftercare. She ended up having the flu and to top it off we got hit with rain /sleet on Friday and snow storm coupled with a power outage Saturday into early morning Sunday only for Sunday to be beautiful and sunny with no traces of snow!!
I thank God for giving me the vision on Saturday to stock up on fruit and cereal because the power went out as I was cooking dinner. It was cold but we just bundled up and went to sleep early.
Monday Mark and I got to spend the day together as his truck was being repaired. We normally don't get to eat lunch but we got a chance to use our Quizno's coupons and enjoy lunch after my OB appt. I am officially in the last lap as I pre-registered and we took a tour of the labor and delivery and recovery ward. It was refreshing to know that the staff agreed with me and my desire not to be "chained" to my bed during the entire labor. Monday evening I guess my nesting instinct kicked into overdrive as I totally re-vamped my kitchen into the wee hours of the morning.

Tuesday it hit me, and I did nothing but recouperate. LOL Today I managed to bake by hand(I am missing my breadmaker paddle) 3 loaves of white /wheat bread, 2 loaves of french baquettes, 1/2 dozen of homemade biscuit to freeze sausage and biscuit sandwiches for the girls for breakfast, a peach cobbler, deer stew, and beef strips with green beans, gravy and rice. Pasta salad and tuna fish for Mark's lunch diet thingy he's on and fruit salad. Needless to say I have been quite the Suzy homemaker today. The best part is that I feel so refreshed and as if I just had the most theraputic day. Now I just need to get some rest!
