I'm still here...
I would like to thank those of you that are praying the St. Rita Novena on my behalf (and on the behalf of all the other IF'ers still in waiting). We visited the National Shrine of St. Rita Cascia and I prayed for all of my IF sisters, as well as Mrs. Hebrews' baby Claire. I left our intentions beside her relics and I lit a candle for all of you. Mrs. Hebrews and I are going to say the novena one extra day to cover trigger day, I would love it if you joined us!
I'm trying my hardest to not think about our trigger shot on the 14th, although it's hard not to. I'm not looking forward to having to inject myself in a hotel room in Pitts.burg (we decided to visit so Mr. JB can see the city where his beloved St.eelers play!). We also wanted to hit the outlet mall in Gro.ve C.ity since we are both quite disappointed with the shopping here in William.sburg.
I've had two highlights to our trip, thus far. Mr. JB and I had breakfast with Karey and her beautiful family. Clara is even cuter in person and she has to be the friendliest toddler that I have ever met! I have been called the "baby whisperer" more than once, but I've never had a child jump into my arms five seconds after meeting her! It always gives me hope to see a former IF buddy with their family!
I've enjoyed being super lazy during our stay in Vi.rginia. I've barely read and I've slept in every morning. I even ate lunch in my pyjamas yesterday! I had a long, hard school year and I want to make sure that I'm rested for the new kiddos!
So, I'm going to stop "working" so hard so I can get into my comfies to watch the closing ceremonies of the Olym.pics. I don't want to get over-tired!
