But I will take that epidural now, thank you

Last night - well, this morning, when I took a power nap in my big ugly orange lazy boy where I keep the heating pad plugged in full time - it's heavenly y'all - I had a dream (that sounded a little MLK but really, I had a dream.) Do y'all ever have that dream where you find out you have a final exam in a class you forgot to drop and have never been to? Oh, I hate that one. Well in this one, I was wandering the halls of a hospital in a hospital gown, and the nurse said, "Okay, let's go ahead and induce you," and I was like, "What?? Today? I didn't pack a bag! Or get my nails done! And Walker is in Houston! I can't have a baby today!! I'm not ready!!"

I woke up and thought, huh, I wonder what that dream meant.

And then I, you know, figured that mystery out. Being that I was a psych minor and all. Twelve course hours. All it took.

What it meant is that I am about 8 centimeters di-a-lated and I'M NOT READY TO HAVE A BABY! AHHHHHH!

I don't have a carseat, y'all. And I still need some leggings in basic colors. And I have yet to go down the Aisle of Dread - yes, the black-girl-hair-product-what-on-earth-I've-never-felt-so-inadequate aisle. I do have, thanks to sweet friends, a ton of precious clothes. And a ton of diapers.

DIAPERS. I have DIAPERS IN MY HOUSE AGAIN.

And LITTLE BITTY PINK SHOES.

AND THERE IS A (PLACE FOR A) CRIB IN MY BEDROOM (THAT'S STILL IN THE GARAGE BECAUSE WALKER HASN'T PUT IT TOGETHER YET AND WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE MATTRESS IS NOT COVERED IN MOLD BECAUSE WE STRAPPED IT TO THE TOP OF THE EXCALIBUR AND DROVE IT BACK FROM HOUSTON IN THE RAIN AND THEN WE FORGOT TO TAKE IT DOWN FOR SEVERAL DAYS BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY WE WANTED TO IMPRESS ALL THE NEIGHBORS.)

We were submitted to Embassy yesterday. Yea! Now they have to conduct some investigations, then they will ask us to pick the dates we want to come, then they will approve the dates, then we hop on a plane. So far, still working on my timeline !yea me! with the same target date of around Valentines.
Yeah so I'm about to look for carseats on Amazon but I want to leave you with the stories of a couple of my friends who have gotten their girls this week.

First Ben and Carrie, whom we traveled to court with



and loved




are flying home RIGHT THIS MINUTE with precious Maryn! Yea!!!




Secondly, my sweet friend Michelle.  Remember when I said I unloaded three trucks full of junk stuff this summer? Michelle sold most of it in garage sales for Gracie. One woman's trash is...still pretty trashy but I'm glad she got some cash for it! Cash for trash, baby. Michelle is over in Bulgaria picking up Gracie, who has Down Syndrome. And they had a horrible bump - when she and her husband and 13 year old daughter were boarding in Frankfort, they wouldn't let her daughter on because her passport expired in May and they said it couldn't expire within the next three months  - ?? Then what's the point of expiration dates?? Michelle had to go on to Bulgaria and leave them there for three long days till the consulate reopened - such a bummer! But they are together now!



Two beautiful baby girls have families tonight, and two beautiful families have new baby girls.

Could you ask for
better bedtime stories that that?
