Maybe I should just make a page just for the middle of the night on Tuesday-Wednesday, Sam started having stomach pain and shortness of breath, so she went to the hospital, and it turns out she was having contractions (She's only 25 weeks pregnant) So they admitted her and put her in a labor and delivery room, and although it took them a long time to stop the contractions, they finally figured it out and she's doing better now. She's coming home today, unless something happened between last night and this morning. They put her on bed rest, which is going to be hard for her, and ordered her to eat more red meat because she's anemic. But baby is healthy. She was hooked up to a monitor for the baby's heart, so we got to listen to his heart beat all day on Wednesday, and every time he moved it made a loud noise. It was reassuring to hear his heart and his movements so strongly. Usually on Thursdays, me, my Eric, Sam, and her Eric huddle on the couch and watch Grey's Anatomy together. So Sam convinced her nurse last night to let us stay until 10, even though visiting hours ended at 8, so that was nice.
Not a whole lot else is going on, except for time flying and the wedding coming up pretty soon. I only have 4 more Montessori weekends! This past weekend, we couldn't stay on campus so instead of paying $75 a night for a hotel, I went and stayed at Janelle and Ryan's house. It was fun, we watched MTV and went to Meijer to get food. Their dog is kind of annoying but it was still fun. They are about a 45 minute drive from Adrian, which is kind of far but cheaper than a hotel and closer than the hour and a half drive to get home, so I might be doing that for the next few Montessori weekends.
This week is Walled Lake's mid winter break, and the family I work for is in Florida so I've had the whole week off...which was extremely boring and I can't wait to get back to work. I guess I'm one of those people who has to have a job, no slacking for me!

We got to go see our condo last night! Go see the Our future home page to check it out.


Yestedray Eric didn't have class so we went after work to check on the progress of our condo. It was the first time we've been able to go inside of the one we're REALLY going to live in, it was so exciting! They put in our cabinets, and the tile in the bathroom already, and the frame for our wrought iron balcony thing. (that was an upgrade, it comes with solid wood balcony, but with our view, we would be crazy to not get the wrought iron!) Don't forget that clicking on the pictures will enlarge them for your viewing pleasure!
The first picture is the living room, taken from the top of the stairs. You can see the frame for the wrought iron and the beautiful view. Just to the left of where I was standing is a little window seat facing the woods. It was such a peaceful view.
The second picture is taken from the living room. Underneath the hanging lamp is the dining room, and into the kitchen. The counter you can see is the 'breakfast bar' so stools fit under it on the other side. You can see the little pantry and the space where our fridge will go. The open door near Eric is our laundry room.

The third picture is the kitchen. the open space on the right will be the microwave on top an oven, and the space on the left will be the dishwasher.
The fourth picture is the bathroom. They have the tub put in but not the toilet. I love the tile we picked!
