TVT MN Style

*I’m going to get a massage in an hour from a doula who specializes in maternity massages. Pretty stoked about that. Thanks, Ma! (and here’s to hoping she can help with the damn carpal tunnel)

*My sister (who is a head volleyball coach at a university in MN and a workout RockStar) took me to the gym on Saturday morning. Nothing too serious – 20 min on the treadmill, 30 min swimming laps in the pool, and 30 squats with the bar in the weight room. I COULD NOT WALK until today. Seriously. Apparently I need to start working on those squats before my birthing time. It’s not a good sign when sitting down to pee makes you want to cry. Wow.

*HUGE congrats and lots of prayers going to Mech & Baby Hopes. They’ve been TTC since May05 and are in the midst of adopting two children…and Baby Hopes just got a surprise natural BFP. She is one of THOSE stories that are so annoying b/c they perpetuate the myth of “just adopt and you’ll get pregnant,” by HOLY CRAP I am beyond excited for them that they are one of those stories. In her words, “[she IS] your neighbor’s best friend’s sister’s mother-in-law’s co-worker’s daughter,” and I couldn’t be happier for her!

*RockStar officially likes to hang out in my ribs and play them like harp strings. OUCH. But so cool.

*Vacations go by much too quickly. I love my family.

*Sorry for the brief check-in and the lack of commenting, but I’m trying to enjoy every minute I can while in MN with the fam. I don’t fly back to CO until Sunday, so it’ll probably be next week before I’m really back in the game. It’s kind of nice to disconnect for a bit!

(the pic above is of my sister A, me, my sister E, and my Mom. E & Mom swim laps every Saturday morning at the local gym, so we joined them last weekend… that was the day of the squats.)
