Just to start off, thanks to everyone for their emails and phone calls to see if we are okay. The fire in Reno is in Southwest Reno and we’re in South Reno. So for now, we are just fine. Reno Fire This week was a good week. Owen and I went to the Le Leche League Meeting on Wednesday morning, and that afternoon we had a playdate with a friend. Tomorrow, my friend Rachel is coming over to discuss my birth. She is going to be my doula and I’m SO excited!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I think I have almost all I need to prepare our meal. Sean is on-call so we’ll work eating around his schedule. Owen is going to help me cook this year, so that should be fun. And interesting. We’re driving to my mom’s in 2 weeks to celebrate Christmas early. I can’t really be traveling over snow-covered mountain passes at 38 weeks pregnant, so we’re just celebrating at the beginning of December this year.
No word on the house this week, but I didn’t really expect to hear anything yet. Fingers crossed and positive thoughts flowing!
We are leaving in a bit to take Owen to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch. He completed his sticker chart for sitting on the potty and his prize he wanted was a trip to Chuck E Cheese. So glad I just got coupons in my email from them yesterday!
