The Night Before...

Here I am at 9:34 p.m.

Four kids down. Laundry Done. Still have some ironing I'd like to do, but we'll see.
B'day gifts wrapped. Little people outfits picked out...even ballet attire for Thursday night's class.

Drank my magnesium citrate and inserted something else (won't go into details) this afternoon. Went much smoother than I imagined.

Starving. Desperately wanting to eat the scrumptious dinner my dear friend S brought over tonight...but no can do. No food for me from 2 p.m. today until tomorrow night. BIG UGH.

In case you didn't know, I'm having surgery tomorrow morning. Basically I'm having repaired what 4 full term babies in 7 years did to this petite body of mine. Did you know when I lean back I have what looks like a banana pop out of my belly?! Yep...it's likened to a freak show. And, oh...you should see me do a push up...as my lil sis said..."Wow, that looks like an alien!" Cool stuff I tell ya. :)

I'm ready. I'm scared. I'm prepared. I'm nervous. I've waited almost three years to do this. I'm not prepared... I don't know what I am.

My hubby's been out of town since 7 a.m. Sunday morning. Was supposed to be home right about now. Flight got delayed. Another BIG UGH. Hoping he gets here around 11:30 p.m. tonight.

Speaking of tonight, I will be taking a Tylenol p.m. to help assure some sleep occurs. Mind will be racing...

Oh how I will miss my morning bowl of oatmeal and big cup of coffee.

Have I mentioned that I have the MOST AMAZING friends & family ever! Sweet words, prayers, thoughts, meals, help with nino's, you name it. I feel overly abundantly to the max BLESSED to know who I know and to be loved by them.

Off to work on more of my TO DO list...makes me feel a little more ready. :)
