I am very thankful today. At 7:00 this morning, Jake's company announced layoffs. By 9:00 he had watched several dozen of his/our friends and co-workers leave with boxes and tears. Most everyone knows that I used to work at the same company. So, every time so one else received the bad news, Jake would text me their name. Several of my very good friends were laid off after years of service. It was devastating. Jake wasn't affected by this round of layoffs. We are very grateful. It is very sobering to watch your friends pack up their desks and walk to their cars, knowing they won't be back tomorrow.

34 weeks

Here we are at the end of week 34. Contractions are getting closer and stronger. I am hoping I make it to at least week 36, but we shall see.

Baby Update

I am now 33 weeks and could have this little dude any day. We were back in the hospital on February 3 because my contractions were 5 minutes apart and I was in a lot of pain. They gave me more Tributalene shots, but they weren't able to get the contractions completely stopped. It did take the edge off the pain though. So, if the contractions continue this way, we may have a baby before the end of February!

Here is a picture that explains why I can't pay my bills. ; )

All three of my loves are addicted to skiing. It gets pretty expensive at $60 for adults and $40 for kids! At least for this season I am banned from the slopes. :)
