No stamping, questions answered, and a touching video....

I had my appointment in San Antonio yesterday (my 32 week OB appt) and I found out that they're going to want me to move there at 36 weeks, but I asked if 37 was okay - ever the bargainer.... My doctor said that would be fine, but as of June 25th I don't have any idea what access I'll have to a computer so this may be the last month or so that you'll hear from me until the baby is born. The baby is due July 17 so I could be in San Antonio for as long as 5 weeks if I go past my due date. It will be interesting, working out all of the details and praying that when I do go into labor Peter can get there in time. It's a 2+ hour drive to the hospital (he is staying in Del Rio because of work, and because of the dogs - we would rather he take leave once the baby is here, not before), and depending on if he's flying when I try to call him or not he may or may not get there very quickly. Anyway, that's kind of taken my attention off of stamping - I had been looking forward to stamping today. I have about a month now to get everything ready at home, and everything ready to take with me and the girls for us and the baby. I promise to post what I stamp as soon as I actually get around to doing it. Thanks for all of the suggestions on the card I posted last!!! I don't know if I'll re-make it or not, I'm kind of sick of it :) I do have some questions to answer though:

Jane asked about the Flannel Plaid BG stamp. It's a SU! stamp that's on page 170 of the Idea Book and Catalog.

Liz asked where we got our fun lawn swing, and the answer is at Home Depot (yes, we actually have a HD here in Del Rio!!!!).

As for what you see below - I've received this video via e-mail several times and after seeing it on Julie's blog today I thought it would be a nice thing to post. I know that there are those of you that disagree with the war in Iraq, but no matter how you feel about it, I believe that it is vital and the absolute right thing for all of us to support the troops over there doing their duty and sacrificing their lives and time away from loved ones to do so. I was in the military and I know first-hand that even the troops themselves aren't always "pro" whatever campaign they're supporting, but part of being in the military is following lawful orders, and being deployed to Iraq or other locations and doing their job is doing just that. We can support THEM even if we disagree with the war.


  1. Thanks for answering my question. Best wishes for you and the baby:)liz

  2. Good luck wiht you and the baby. I hope everything goes good.If you need anything I am right down the street.here is my blog toohttp://inkinaddict.blogspot.com

  3. I'm excited about your pregnancy! There's nothing like a new little life, a child of God.Of course I was crying by the end of the video. I remember so well how the soldiers were treated by others during the Vietnam war, it was downright hideous! These are now the parents and grandparents of our young soldiers and I'm sure they don't want that to ever happen again. TFS.

  4. wow - thanks for sharing the video. I will say a prayer for you & baby. Look foward to the wonderful news of arrival! Take care
