Dear Blog...

Well, it's been over a month since I have posted anything. I always think of things that I can blog about, but then I never do it. But right now, Richard and his brother, Michael, are playing XBOX together (male bonding moment) so I decided that I would check my email (again), and write a letter to my blog and to let it know what I am doing.

Dear Blog (and any of our readers):
School is over. Christmas is past. And now it's 2008!
I ended up with much better grades than I expected, and an A on my English research paper. I think that A made me the most happy, because English is the class I stress most over, therefore work the hardest in, and at the end of the semester, its the class that turns out to be my absolute favorite. Strange.

Christmas was so good. Richard and I initially planned to wake up and enjoy a wonderful breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and eggs. However, when I woke up in the morning, I told Richard that I didn't want bacon. He replied, "And, I don't really want pancakes." But Captain Crunch sounded like a delicous breakfast for the both of us.

We opened our gifts after breakfast. Richard got a lot of DVD's thanks to all of the great sales at Target. And I got a kitchen knife set from him. Douglas got socks, and children's books. :)

Then we pretty much spent the rest of the day at my parents house, and the Heisses opening more gifts, eating lots of food, and seeing my cute nephew! Richard did likewise, except most of his time was spent playing Axis and Allies. Nancy Heiss was lucky to get Andrew out of the game when she did, because the game didn't officially end until the next day! Anyway, thanks for the games, and the presents, and the dinners!

Well, I feel like this blog is long enough, although I really could continue writing about things such as our baby who's due to land at our doorstep (hopefully not literally) in the next 6 weeks. I guess, I really have nothing much else to say about that except "Wow! That seems really close, and I feel hardly prepared." Richard and I attended our first prenatal care class on Thursday and he doesn't want me to go into labor, ever. So, I guess that is decided now. I'll just be pregnant for the rest of my life.

Hey! I can comment now! :)

It was good to see you guys for Christmas. And I am very glad that I took Andrew away when I did! Talk about b-o-r-i-n-g!

Good job on your semester!

And I'm sure that when you go into labor you'll both handle it smashingly well.

Once when I was telling my friend how far along I was and how long I had left she said, "Is pregnancy only 40 weeks?!? It felt like 40 months!"

Ahh, yup! These last few weeks are a doozy!

I have my first class on Tuesday, Ben doesn't want to go, but I think it's going to be a good idea.

You're baby is so lucky to get socks.

Wow, I didn't know that Michael was down here. How are you and Richard doing? I have a blog now just to let you know. I love you lots!!
