-I was puking
-Barclay had been up half the night
-We were like an hour behind in everything
-I have done minimal laundry since the dreaded morning sickness had hit and we had limited choices for clothes to wear...very limited.
-Our regular pastor wasn't preaching
-Several of our good friends who go to our church were out of town.
-I felt like death warmed over...Noah felt like death warmed over.
-Barclay was covered in raspberry remnants
We decided we still wanted to push through and go. I even decided to curl my hair and put on a little makeup! Wonder of wonders, since I usually go to church with my hair soaking wet from my shower 20 minutes earlier. I was feeling pretty proud of myself, like I had it all together...When I realized that I had forgotten shoes! So I attended church, downtown, barefooted...and pregnant, with a baby on my hip:-)
I was so tickled because my grandmother was known for going places and forgetting to bring her shoes all the time. I've been missing her so much lately, and It was so comforting to know that I carry some of her spunk inside of me:-)
