our life right now

This picture sums up our life right now

We are living in chaos. Last weekend we moved most of our stuff out of our apartment and spread it out between Robert's parent's garage and basement and my parent's house. We are moving to my parent's for 3 years while they serve in Guam. I cannot tell you how weird it is to sleep in your old high school bedroom with your husband and a big, preggo belly. I think Robert felt almost as funny about it as I did. I hate living out of boxes between a million different places. I also detest moving, especially at 8 months pregnant.

Never have I wanted this baby to come more than now. My back is starting to really ache and her little head keeps pinching a nerve that almost paralyzes me. I can't lift a dang thing and I look like a neanderthal when I try to bend over and pick something up or clean as I try to maneuver around this big buddha belly. After lifting bags and boxes and climbing a million stairs moving into my parent's bedroom yesterday, I woke up this morning feeling like someone had seriously beat me up. I am so grateful that we have such a nice place to live for FREE, but I'll be even more happy about it once we're settled.

Take a look at these big puffers below. My feet have EXPLODED the last few days. I can't seem to drink enough water and yet it all seems to just go straight to my feet and ankles. It's kind of humorous, and Robert tells me I have Polynesian feet these days. He is right, that's exactly what they look like. I no longer have the signature "skis," as my uncle used to call them. I can't wait to get them back. It's also very difficult to find shoes to fit these puppies anymore and they feel like they're going to explode whenever I try to bend my ankles. And in spite all of my complaining, all of this is worth it for our little girl. I say I'm ready to have her now, but I'm not even close. We still have a TON to do before she arrives.

And lastly, my brother Nick and I dropped my parents off at the airport yesterday. It was pretty heart-wrenching but I am glad they are on their way. There has just been so much waiting and so many goodbyes and it just feels like it's time for them to jump in and get going. They flew directly to Tokyo and should be arriving in Guam in the next couple hours. I can't wait to hear from them! They are going to be unbelievable. I wish my dad could have been my mission president. Love you guys!!

  1. Wish I were there to help you, but I'm also kinda glad that I wasn't there to say bye to mom and dad. I bet Beth cried.
