I must say two natural disasters (an earthquake and a hurricane) in the same week was pretty stressful for a pregnant lady! I am normally someone who likes to be prepared, some might say I am sometimes overly prepared. Well, not this time. Joe and I attempted to go out and get some food in case we lost power for many days, we ended up with a few cans of fruit, canned chicken, trail mix, water and beef jerky which Joe promptly ate before the storm even began! We don't have a gas stove so if we had to throw away most of the stuff in our fridge we would have been screwed dudes. Next was my search for D batteries for our 2 larger flashlights. Not one store had any. I saw a man standing there in Target with some in his hand but I had already scoured the entire store and there were none so I really don't know where he got them, and I was really tempted to knock him down and take them. That is terrible. But I didn't. I just went home and hoped and prayed that we didn't lose power and thank you God, we didn't. Our friends and family surely did and some didn't have power for days and days, which I have lived through in the past so I know how hard it is. I am glad that is all behind us now. We were actually out there today still doing clean up of all the branches and leaves that are covering our parking lot, roof and yards.
In other news, I had a doctor's check up today, they are now every 2 weeks, so I feel like I am always there. I am happy to report that my blood pressure was great and the baby's heart beat was strong and sounded good. Everything is looking good. And only 68 days to go after today, that isn't long at all but its already so hard to get around and get comfortable at night that it does feel like a long time to me. I am very happy that the weather is so gorgeous and mild and that I don't have to battle the extreme heat anymore.
I am really looking forward to celebrating my 2nd wedding anniversary on Saturday. We are going to Iron Bridge Wine Company our favorite place to enjoy some delicious food. I won't be able to have wine which will be hard but I am so used to it by now. I will have to post again and let you know about our weekend.
