BIG NEWS!!!!!! The nursery is almost done! A big shout out to Aunt Brenda and Mimi who spent their whole day with me yesterday putting everything together. On Tuesday, I had an actual panic attack describing my list of "to do's" to a sweet friend. This friend innocently asked how I was. When I lied and said, "doing great", she called me out on it and said, "you sound really stressed". And the flood gates opened! I started crying, and my heart stared racing and I was rambling on the phone with her. As soon as I hung up the phone, I started praying and had very little peace. I didn't sleep well the next few days and was just sad and overwhelmed. On Saturday my in-laws offered to take the kids for a sleepover and I almost said no because I didn't even know where to start. Mimi and Aunt Brenda swooped in and took over. They took me shopping and arranged the furniture (I swear I put all the furniture in the same place and it didn't look as good). We even found a pillow that matches our bedding that says "Sweet Pea". Can you believe it??!! They helped me hang some cute stuff on the walls around my house (not just in the nursery), and ran some much needed errands with me and help make really mundane decisions I could not have made. I will post pics when it is totally done! I feel so much better now, I even did my quiet time in the nursery this morning. I wish I could move in there! Thank you for continuing to pray for us as we get closer to bringing our Sweet Pea home. 21 days closer to be exact!! AHHH!!!
