(No)Labor day

So here we are on (NO) Labor day and I have spent most of it watching Grey's Anatomy. My family left to go to the ward picnic then Mike took Izzy swimming, they both had such a wonderful time! Now we have just been hanging out and watching Enchanted. Isabel loves this movie. I hit 29 weeks tomorrow. I'm pretty excited, although it's a bit tough this week, Mike is working so much so on top of everyone helping my family....I have to find rides to the Dr's. Just one more way my family has to depend on others with this baby.
I woke up this morning and realized I didn't comment on Saturday. Granted September 4th is not a day I like to remember, but I'm actually happy that I didn't think of it. September 4th was the 2 year anniversary of Brooklyn's passing. We decided as a family to remember her birth and not focus on her death. So I'm actually quite happy that the thought didn't cross my mind that day.
I am so ready to get off this couch. I'm so tired of being a bump on a log and not helping my family. I know what's more important, I know it's all worth it, but I'm still tired of having to ask others for everything. I really just want to cook for my family, unload the dishwasher or even do laundry. Instead I get to fight off depression, boredom, and laziness. woo hoo.

Kick that depression in the butt, Tracy. Just look in the mirror and say, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dog-gone-it, people like me." (Do you remember that SNL bit?)

I actually think that trying to focus on the positive makes dealing with the difficult more manageable(sp?). I'm really glad you have made it so far in this pregnancy!!

ok here's the plan- i'll come over and bring the laundry basket to your couch, and you can fold it all. That way you feel like you're doing something, AND you're staying on the couch. Haha. Let me know ;)

Hey. My name is Kim. I came from Bethany Amberson's blog (she's my sis-in-law). I just wanted to cheer you on. We lost our first baby at 23 weeks and I've had 3 more healthy babies(2 of which I was on bedrest for). I know how miserable it can be, and how stressful as well!!! But you are amazing for putting everything on hold to bring another sweet baby into your home. Good luck & I hope you stay pregnant for a LOOOONG time ;). I hope you don't mind if I follow your progress.
