Before the long recap of our last month, I have to show you these great pictures that my talented future sister-in-law took for us. We just love how these turned out and are proud to be connected to such real talent! Check out her blog here.
Sometimes life moves so fast its hard to keep up! Chase is plugging away at NAI-Utah enjoying his job and learning lots about the big kid world of commercial real estate. We have been anxiously counting down the days for our sweet little boy's arrival. Two weeks! I can't even believe it is coming so quickly. Here is a recap: We moved out of the Taylor's basement and into a cute little apartment that we are frantically trying to make into a home in time to welcome him home.
We are officially a one car family. Our trusty "gold car" that I've driven since I was fifteen has caused us a lot of stress lately. After putting $1000 when it broke down on the freeway, it broke down 2 weeks later. UGH. Luckily I only had a couple weeks of work left and now Chase just takes the car to work and I am stuck at home.
I was so anxious to be done working at Franklin Covey so I could get busy readying our house for our new arrival. Like I said in my last post, I had a "To Do" list the size of Texas and I was planning on running full speed until it was all done. shopping, cleaning, organizing, unpacking...on and on and on. I'm thinking I was too stubborn to be told to slow down though so I was forced to. I want to blame it on the unbalance and softened ligaments of being pregnant but really I was just a clutz and rolled my ankle coming down a small flight of stairs. I tried to catch myself with my other ankle and missed the last 3 stairs and sprained both ankles. Who sprains TWO ankles at a time, while being 8.5 months pregnant?!! I guess just me! I have alternated using crutches (holy painful!) and scooting around the Taylor's house on an office chair. I am just blessed that I have a wonderful Mother-in-law that so willingly took care of me the last few weeks. Here are a few silly pics of me getting around. I'll spare you the picture of my ankle eight days after the injury. Its still pretty nasty, swollen and purple.37 weeks pregnant
Despite the craziness, life keeps moving on! Here is a forecast of the exciting things in the next few months.
