bit of zen



Spent the weekend getting sunburned and spreading out rocks. We've filled in the canyon that had dug its way under the fence, and we replaced it with a dry creek bed. Ignore the fact that there's nothing else in our yard besides dirt, and it actually looks ok. I never quite realized how much I like pond stones. We ran the hose over it a few times to get the full effect (and to make sure that we weren't just spreading the flooding to somewhere else).

Other piece of good news: our third ultrasound revealed a very very healthy looking baby boy. Looks like his kidney problem has resolved itself. I'm still going in for a follow-up in 6 weeks, but this is a huge relief to us all. I have only 9 weekends left before the Big Day. Amazing how quickly it goes.

Last but not least, I'm flying back to Minnesota Thursday for the weekend. Can't wait to see friends and some family who are driving out to meet us. I'm excited to walk on the River Road again and to cross the Mississippi on all my favorite bridges. Taking Laura on a plane will be interesting, but I think it will be worth the squirming. With luck the people around us won't mind too much either.
