I was really nervous about going back to work on Wednesday, but I did and I survived. The first few hours were really emotional.  When you work with lots of women who truly care any minute of the day can turn into a cry-fest! When I saw the parking lot that morning I just didn't think I could do it, but I just kept pushing on.  Several of my friends came by to check on me and as soon as I saw them standing in my door I would just break down in tears.  By lunchtime I wasn't anxious anymore and felt somewhat normal again.  I also came across this Bible verse that morning that helped to calm my anxious thoughts:
As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the works of God, the Maker of all things. --Ecclesiastes 11:5
On another note....We have cribs!!  A few weeks ago we went to IKEA.  I had posted a picture previously of a green crib that I had my eye on.  Well,  in person it was really green.  So that idea went out the window.  I ended up getting white cribs that will break down into toddler beds when needed and I love them.  They were on sale and I got a super deal. I would post a pic, but they are still in boxes in the garage.  :-) 

Today some of my sweet friends came to visit.  They brought a beautiful pink rose bush, a tea olive bush that smells delicious, and some cute metal pinwheels for my flower garden.  The weather is not cooperating for us to plant this weekend...hopefully we can get started one afternoon this week.  Last year I planted some lilies in with my vegetables and they are coming back! yay!! They will be beautiful.  I also  bought some zinnia and black-eyed susan seeds this week.  Does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas about what I should plant?? 

Here is my 12 week glamour shot...ha!
