Wow yesterday was a long day for us. We decided that we were going to put up corn for the winter. ( me, my sister-in-law Suzanne, and my mom) Between the 3 of us we did 40 dozen. That is 480 ears of corn. We enlisted help from the kids to help shuck. They were fine for the first hour or two But that is alot of corn to shuck. Konnor even did a good job of helping. Needless to say we worked from 11:00 to around 5:00 shucking, washing, cooking, cutting and bagging. This corn was so sweet and good. I know it is going to taste good in the middle of the winter. My kitchen has been dirty before but you can't even imagine how dirty it was when we got finished yesterday. The corn was so juicy everything was so sticky. The floor had to be mopped twice. I was so tired when I went to bed last night. I took two Tylenol and went to bed.
My doctor appointment went good on Wed. I am dilated to two cm. Not bad for 36 weeks but nothing to get too excited over. We will see what they tell me next week. I figured all that work yesterday is worth at least 2 more centimeters. Don't you think? Well I am not really sure what is up for the weekend. I hope everyone else has a good one!!

Konnor's first time to eat corn on the cob. He tried to eat the cob too.
I know this is said alot but I cant believe I went a week and did not post a single thing. I did have a busy week but I really don't have an excuse. I had my weekly doctor appt. on Wed. and when I walked in there was only one seat left in the waiting room. ( its a good thing I didn't have my kids with me) Well 10 minutes after I get there the nurse comes to the door and says that the doctor had to go to the hospital for a delivery and we could reschedule or wait. ( I found out that this was the 3rd time that morning that this had happened)Needless to say the waiting room cleared real fast.I talked to the nurse and she said it would be an hour at least before I would be seen so I decided to leave. Of coarse the doctor is on vacation this week so I get to see the nurse practitioner. I have been feeling so overwhelmed. I haven't had anything done with the baby stuff. So last week I got out all of the newborn baby clothes that I have acquired and washed them and put them in the dresser. I bought a bouncy seat( my one necessary item) and some diapers( also necessary). Its pretty bad I am only a few weeks from delivery and I didn't have any diapers. Now I just have to get a car seat( or they won't let me bring him home) and a bed. Thanks to my friend Katie H. I just need to walk over to her house and get the bed she is letting me borrow. We are switching bedrooms around so the boys who are going to be sharing will have the biggest room. So I started getting all of Megan's stuff out and randy started painting Saturday. The colors are going to be Orange and white with a cool Hot wheels border around the middle. In other words we have alot to do in a short amount of time.
When I was close to delivering my other kids I put up a bunch of meals in the freezer for after I came home from the hospital and didn't feel like cooking. I guess I need to get busy with that soon. Does anyone have any good recipes that freeze good. I would love to have something different than the same old stuff I normally do.Well I need to get something done today. I hope this wont be the last post of the week. LOL
