On the mend.

Oh man do I feel better today. I'm actually able to walk, climb the stairs and get my pants on without assistance. I feel like a new woman! OK, maybe not that great but SO much better than Tuesday or yesterday.
I forgot to mention that I am officially in the THIRD TRIMESTER! WTH?! Where did that come from? I can't believe I have 83 days left. It seems like it goes by so slow then all of a sudden I get a mommy/baby email about "are your bags packed?". I saw that yesterday and thought WTH do I need my bags packed for? I read a little farther and discovered that in about 6 weeks they are suggesting that I have my bags packed. OK, that settled down my freak out a little. We still have quite a bit to get ready before Miss Thing gets here. We don't have our crib or dresser/changing table here yet. It's ordered but won't be in until April sometime which is right around the corner. We don't have our stroller/car seat and several other essential items but I'm planning on buying all that after our baby showers.

Today I'm off to the clinic to do my glucose tolerance test. Then onto Target, the party store and the barn to see my horse. If you haven't heard, Fargo/Moorhead is in a major flood watch. The Red River is due to crest on Saturday sometime so for the last few days this area has been virtually shut down so everyone can help sandbag. My horse is at the trainers which is about 1/4 mile away from the Sheyenne River which is also going to crest on Saturday. The water is right under the bridge and getting ready to go over the road anytime. We're hoping to not have to move all the horses out of there but if we have to that is completely fine. It's better to be safe than sorry. We live 25 miles outside of Moorhead and are high and dry. There isn't any water around us but we do have about 5 inches of new snow. Ick! Fargo also received snow which is not helping with the flood fight.
I'm off to hit the town! Happy Thursday!!

I read about the floods in Fargo this morning in the NY Times and thought about you. I hope you don't have to move the horses, but yes better safe than sorry.

Good to hear you're feeling better. I can't believe you're in the home stretch. Seriously where did the time go???
