New Beginnings

Hello, dear readers. D here again, ready to take you through another post. This post is brought to you today by the letters H, O, and T. We have been stuck in a pattern of heat and humidity. While that is status quo for us here in the South, the last two weeks have been a bit much. I guess this is just my punishment for making fun of Al Gore on Twitter one of those heat waves that comes around every so often. The heat has been especially tough on Ginny, but she has been a trooper and coped well. The lower back and leg pain bothers her more, but with only 4 weeks and a couple of days until splashdown, she's in the home stretch.

As for the title of this post, I am writing this from the love-seat in the den of our house! Although we had been taking about 5 boxes over here each day for the last week, today we moved the majority of our belongings from the apartment. We began at 7 am sharp and ended at 11 am (almost sharp). We hit our goal end time, which was great given that I lost about 10 pounds of water weight in the process and smelled like a high school locker room. We had a tremendous amount of help, for which Ginny and I are so very thankful. Mom, Ma'am, Andrew, Erin, Emily, Seth, Patsy, Mike, and our truck and trailer man Michael all chipped in, which was good, because frankly there's no way Ginny could have moved the washer and dryer down the stairs by herself. (Note to all, she was forbidden from carrying any box.)

Ginny will be along with pictures at some point I'm sure, but right now she's a little preoccupied with boxes, baby, and taking it easy. She'll be 36 weeks Monday and starts her once-a-week appointments, too. Little Giant Baby Nyla is almost here; her room is ready; and I'm ready to live blog from the delivery room welcome her into my arms and family.

Until next time, remember, drink lots of water and stay cool!
