PTL!



It's been a good week thus far. PTL! (As my sister taught me--Praise The Lord). The weather has made a huge difference. PTL! I think I have finally kicked my illness and believe it or not, my pregnancy feels like a breeze now that I got that nasty bug out of my system. (Well...except for the extreme heartburn, achy and swollen legs, sore hips, and extreme random pain in my middle section and "way down low"...) Just the ushe. (How do you spell ushe? You know, the abbreviated "usual"? Uze?)

Peter and I have been having adventures on his bike, at the park, and in our backyard. We're painting the nursery this week and I'm trying to convince Vic to get some other major house projects done before the wee one gets here. I mean...I'm not sure, but I have a sneaky suspicion we might be tired for the next few months. Just a hunch.

Vic is keen on doing a blog and loved Meagan's idea of doing an interview. He's working on an asylum case that is taking a lot of research and time and hasn't gotten home from work until well after 8 for a week or so. So the interview is coming along slowly, but surely. By the time he is home, my brain has turned off for the day and I'm pretty useless.

Which leads me to my next thought--do YOU have a question you'd like to ask Vic? Let me know and I'll be happy to have it in his blog post interview. How much you bench, Vic?

Remind me to show you photos of our new mudroom and the work we've done on our basement. Mmmm...K?

You know what's interesting? I've been thinking much more about ______'s impending birth (yes, we have a name picked out but I shall not disclose it until after the birth...just to make sure she looks and feels like a _______) than I have about Lucy's death. I don't know what to make of this. Mixed feelings. Not that I ever forget for a second about Lucy, or her upcoming "anniversary", but when you have something as huge as giving birth coming up on the calendar, it is hard to think about anything else. Of course, I haven't hit the month of May yet and things could change.

Watch for my interview with Vic this week. And send any questions my way.

And don't forget to PTL!

  1. Molly Dear,

    Hmmm...questions for the lovely Vic? What was the first thing he noticed about you?

    As for thinking more about the impending arrival of baby girl more than the loss of precious girl, to me this is the natural order of things. This is what it feels like to let joy, happiness, normalacy back into your lives. This is the thing about grief and the heart. For a long while all there is is pain. Over time happy slowly squeaks back in. The heart, by miraculous design of our Maker, is just elastic enough to hold both joy and pain at the same time. Then, when you are ready, the pain scooches over to make more room for joy. It's not that the pain isn't there anymore. It's just that it ceases to hurt so damn much.

    I love the heart. I love that yours is slowly making room for the joy of three beautiful babies all the while holding a place to honor the grief.

  2. Yay, Interview With a Vicpire! (sorry i'm so hilarious). Can't wait for that.

    I would like to ask Vic, isn't Molly so pretty? And also, what is your favorite thing to do with Peter, just the two of you?

    I'm sooo glad you're feeling better, Molly. And I think it makes sense that you would be focusing so exclusively on your upcoming birth. I think nature does that on purpose, completely takes over your brain when you get into the third trimester. It's so you don't forget and end up on I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant giving birth in a Target restroom.
