Well it is currently 4:00 am and I am sitting in my kitchen unable to sleep. I don't know if it nerves or excitement or what! Tomorrow is Charlie day and I'm so excited. We had a super busy weekend trying to finish up last minute stuff as well as watching the Sooners destroy the Red Raiders! Boomer! Saturday, Jake did all the yard work and got everything in shape that had been a little neglected the last couple months. I caught up on the laundry and ironing and played with the kids. Sunday was a cooking marathon. I cooked five huge casseroles to put in the freezer for everyone to eat while I'm in the hospital and for when I first come home. Yesterday, I went and got a mani and pedi and it was as Borat would say "Very, Very Nice"!. They used hot stones which left my legs feeling so freakin' awesome. After my little beauty day, the kids and I came home and they took a nap while I caught up on my soaps. No tellin' when I'll get to watch any more of those! Maybe those midnight feedings! Today, the cleaning lady is coming and I'm finishing up some last minute stuff. The dogs have to be at the groomer at 9:30, I need to go pick up some batteries for all of Charlie's stuff, get my oil changed in the van and then my pre-op appointment is at 2:00. Family should start arriving by five. My brother (Arin), his girlfriend (Savannah), my mom, dad, Nanna, Poppa and Jake's parents will all be here. My mom, dad, Arin and Savannah are going to stay here with the kids in the morning and then bring them up to the hospital a little later once we get settled in. I really want to keep their routine as normal as possible. It is already going to be so weird for them. No one else has ever taken care of them but me. Not that I don't have full confidence in my family, it will just be weird being away from them for four days! Maybe a nice little break, but still weird. Well, I'm off to see if I can go back to sleep. Wish us luck tomorrow and we will get some info posted as quick as we can!
Here's some pics from this weekend. Our last weekend as a family of five!
