Baby's Birthday

I planed my c-section date last Dr. visit. So, this baby is to be born on July 26 at 12:30 p.m. We still don't have a name for the little guy yet but we are working on it. I'm excited to see my little boy and be the sole person living in my body.

This last week has just been so crazy. As I told you before out dryer and our TV broke but not only that our computer broke that week too. Allen tripped over the cord and the screen busted. So, around that time the pregnancy hormones kicked in and the poor mess came on pretty strong. I took a bath and said a prayer and not even about 5 minutes later my friend Jamie called. She said I heard your TV broke and we just had this one sitting on the office floor. Would you like to use it? Amazing, yes we would love to use it. My crying also inspired Kevin that morning and he decided to call the place we bought the dryer and they told him how to get the part out that they thought it was and to bring it in. He did so with ease and it turned out not even to be the heater coil like we had thought. It was the thermostat and a fuse. It only cost us $40 and Kevin did all the work himself. So, that was two blessings right in a row. I was starting to feel a bit better about things by then but still not great because we don't have the $ right now for a new computer. I called my mother just to get rid of some stress about the whole thing. She always seems to be able to up lift me somehow. I got off the phone with her and started to count my blessings again but a little more thankfully this time. And just a couple of hours later my mother called back (she is on vacation by the way. She isn't even home this weekend). She says Corrine we have 3 computers at our house why don't you go and take the one that is in the kitchen. I was floored. What no, I can't just take your computer. She says yes you can. As I said I have 3. We love you and Dad and I talked about it and we want you to have it. At that point I couldn't even believe what had just happened. All week I stressed because I had no clue how we were going to replace these 3 expensive items in our house and all of them just came to us because of the good in other people. I really can't deny the Lord's hand in this and how thankful I am for such wonderful people who would be willing to give up so much for me. I don't think I deserve these very special blessings but I'm so grateful for them.

Fun Weekend

Grandpa and Grandma Meagher came over this last weekend. It was a whole lot of fun. Sadly it rained half the time but I think we did okay. They always spoil us when they come which is really appreciated. Allen, got some real golf clubs and got to go to the driving range with Grandpa and Dad. He was the happiest kid on earth. I was told he did pretty good too. Also the boys got new bunk beds which they adore. Carter had a hard time letting go of his toddler bed for just one minute. But when he saw what he was going to get to sleep in he decided it was okay and even helped Dad carry the old bed to the garage for storage. The boys have been happy little clams with their new exciting items. On the down side though that weekend our dryer broke. It decided to just stop heating. And the day Kevin's parents left the T.V. also quit. Sadly I have realized how much I rely on these things. Of course it had to happen at the end of the month when we don't get payed till the first weekend in the month. So, we just have to suck it up and live with out them for a week or so. My mother (bless her heart) took all my laundry home and washed it for me so we would still have clean clothes to put on for the week. So, I suppose we are not that bad off then. Well, that was out eventful weekend.
Allen, doing some amazing Tiger Woods swing. He's got all the talent and non of the girl problems. After Grandma and Grandpa left Carter had Dad make him a little fort. But he was so tired he decided to curl up and sleep on it instead. So cute.
