As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Things that make me happy today

1. I found my camera! (but just a few minutes ago, so not a whole lot of picture taking going on today.

2. I finally, after 2 weeks of waiting, got the replacement belts for my vacuum cleaner. I have been without a vacuum cleaner for almost a month, forced to borrow my mother in law's every week. Four dogs with no vacuum cleaner is NO fun.
3. Upwards soccer. Love love love this program, and they extended the age limit up to 6th grade, so Maddy can play again. I love going to the games, and there's only one practice per week. Plus, at half-time, the kids get a message. Good, Christian coaches and Maddy loves it. I was actually missing going somewhere for the kids every week--we haven't since cheerleading and cross country have ended.

4. The possibility...however small it may be...of snow! I don't want to live in Michigan, I don't want days and days of it. I just want ONE snow day. Just one.

On the other hand...I'm spotting again. I know that on Wednesday, everything was fine with the baby, and that it probably still is. My midwife says not to worry--as it is light and only infrequently--and to try to cut back on what I am doing and not worry unless it gets worse or I start cramping. She says that with four kids and a full time job, that it's hard to not overdo it (which is true) and that at my age (ARRRGH!) it's normal. Plus something about a friable cervix. So I'm trying not to worry. But how do you manage to take it easy and take care of the little one inside of me, when the little ones (and not so little ones) outside need so much?
