We all know really what I'm saying is goodbye Starbucks....I will miss you, but will visit you every other Thursday to get a fix!
I'm so proud of the boys and of Jeremy. It wasn't an easy game, but they hung in there and pulled out a W! So next week we'll be back for regionals! A parent told me tonight that it had been 10 years since they had won districts, and she told me how much the boys loved Jeremy. So even though we're living apart, I'm so proud of him for making an impact on this team and the town. It makes me feel that for now, he's in the right place.
If you ever need a hotel in McAlester, I'd recommend the AmericInn, it is managed by an OC Alumn, they have nice rooms, great breakfast, a heated indoor pool, and a hot tub. My legs enjoyed the hot tub, but that's it, since I can't get in further. It looks like we may be camping out here again next weekend too!
I went to a ton of basketball games, thinking, any day my water is going to break at a game, and it is going to be oh so embarrassing. Well, that didn't happen, and our doc, whose daughter Jeremy happened to coach at one point was so nice to schedule Cooper to come around basketball playoffs. Meaning, we were able to have him and Jeremy not miss one game, and we were all able to enjoy the state tourney. This year, Cooper and I will be attending the playoffs with no back up plan for "in case I go into labor". So here is my list of things to do in the next 3 months before Maddie comes.
1. Find a house
Yep, that's pretty much all I need to do. I think I'm a little anxious about not moving before she gets here. Although, in the long run, it won't matter all that much, because I am delivering in OKC, and I plan to stay at my parents while Jeremy finishes up the school year. Not being able to drive or lift your 2 year old while being at home by yourself in a new town with a newborn isn't the best plan. Oh, and I need to be recovered the best I can by June 5th, when my cousin gets married, because I am taking their pics. Wouldn't do it for anyone else, but can't say no to this sweet couple, they are family! Plus, we'll probably be here a lot for cage camps this summer anyway, but this house is going to get a lot more crowded when you add a baby to this mix.
I think often about what Colt McCoy said after his injury in the National Championship game, you probably didn't care, or probably didn't watch it, but the reporter asked him, how do you feel about your injury? -something like that. I'm pretty sure she wasn't expecting the answer she got. I was so impressed he took a deep breath, thought for a minute, and said you know, I know God is in charge of my life, I don't ever ask why things happen, I know God has a plan. As Christians shouldn't that be our answer everytime something not ideal happens to us? What if we didn't ask why?
So, I will continue to wait, and be patient, and trust in the fact that I know God has a plan for me. Sometimes it's nice to hear someone else say, in a very public way they think the same way!
So you may have seen on Facebook, my mom broke her arm in NYC, I guess maybe God is saying I'll let you find a house, when you're mom can take care of herself. Okay, sorry mom, it isn't that bad, but she can't drive, or lift things. Try explaining that to an almost 2 year old little boy. He doesn't quite understand. So hopefully soon we'll find an appropriate house. I never thought in a million years it would take me this long to find a house and get into a house. Or I would've started looking a long time ago. Oh well, guess I'll keep waiting on one. In the meantime, just pray that I keep patience, and my sanity. We are on a 14 week clock here, that is 14 weeks, until we become a family of 4 with all our stuff in storage and living in the room I grew up it. Jealous, aren't you?
