Driveway Improvement

Our driveway is one of 3 remaining driveways on our street that is still gravel. At one time we priced making it concrete, but WOW concrete is expensive. So for years we have watched our gravel driveway turn to dirt and weeds.
So we finally broke down this week and ordered some new gravel for the driveway. It came today. We received 5.5 tons of gravel. The guys were great! They raked and shoveled the drive and corners as well as around the house.
The driveway looks fantastic and we are very pleased that we finally got the gravel!

33 Weeks

Yesterday was the 33 week mark. In some ways it seems like the pregnancy has gone really fast and in others it's gone slow. We are in full baby mode here now. We've finished the nursery, we have diapers, wipes, and lotions, thanks to mom's and Jenny Bredemeier, We have blankets and our registry is finished! We have a crib and a bouncy (something my cousin Brandon said we could not bring the baby home with out!), The car seat is in the closet and goes in the back of the RAV anytime we travel farther than 20 minutes :). We've taken a baby class and inherited lots of fun baby toys/books from Heather and Kirk! Thanks a ton!

Now the only thing we have to do is wait.......
I am feeling good, more and more tired, but good. I'm thinking it could have something to do with this 5 + pound baby inside, but who am I to figure out why I'm tired!
Monday at a non-stress test it showed that I was having contractions. I'm not feeling anything yet, but that was sure a wake up call. I have since been in my classroom and here at home busily trying to get everything in order...just in case. I have another non-stress test tomorrow morning so it will be good to see what that shows.
It's crazy to see how much I've "grown"...I'm just hoping I "shrink" back soon!
