Friday

It's Friday... THREE DAYS until Chase's arrival! I have to keep reminding myself how soon he'll be here because I'm just not believing it yet. There's just been too much else going on in our little world to really concentrate on the fact that I'll be giving birth in 3 short days. Crazy!

I am super-happy that my fabulous sister-in-law safely arrived today along with my equally as fabulous mother-in-law! They drove down together, although my MIL will be leaving tomorrow morning. I think LO was totally stoked to see her Gramma and Aunt D and hang out with them tonight. Hubs and I had the privilege of meeting with Erin and Milo Wilson for dinner tonight. It's such a blessing to have some "heart parents" to talk to, especially ones as incredible and knowledgeable as the Wilsons!

Not much else is going on with us. I did have the unexpected joy of telling hubs our Jeep Cherokee battery was dead. I was getting ready to leave for Target while LO was napping and hubs was considering a nap for himself (much-needed if you ask me!). I went outside, got in the Jeep and turned the key. Not a single light came on, not a single sound was made. It was all kinds of dead. As you can imagine, hubs was waaaaay less than pleased to hear this news. Long story short, I took our other car to Target to pick up a few last things, then found the nearest Home Depot to pick up some socket wrench set thing for hubs to use on the battery. After I got home, he was eventually able to jump the Jeep using our other car. He drove it to a nearby Walmart, where he had purchased the battery 4 short months ago, and they tested it saying it was fine. We'll see if it still starts in the morning after sitting all night long.

We don't have any big plans for the weekend. We should receive our cell phone signal booster thing on Saturday, and I'm REEEEEAAAALLLLLLLLYY hoping it will fix our poor AT&T signal issues. Oh, and did I mention how incredibly BUMMED I am that my sister-in-law and mother-in-law both have Verizon and their phones work fine INSIDE OUR HOUSE?!?!?!? Argh!! So apparently it IS just an AT&T coverage issue. I feel awful since I was the one who worked so hard at convincing hubs to switch from Verizon to AT&T about a month before we came down to Charleston. ((sigh))
