Hooray for Friday!

by Mama Chocolate on October 22, 2010

I’m always glad for Fridays to come around…but I’ve been especially looking forward to this Friday for sometime…
This is why:
Ah! Sweet bliss!

  I’ve been needing a good dose of beach, and I’m going to be there, soaking it in, ALL weekend. Besides refreshing myself with the salty, clean air, the fellowship will be sweet! My whole family plus our BFF family will all be together for the whole weekend! We’ve done this every year for many years, now…but we’re growing! Everybody is getting married and having kids! What used to be 14 of us, only 3 years ago, (yes, it only took two families to add up to 14 people!) is now 19! 20, actually, if you count the Baby Within. :-)

  Now I’m wondering if I can pull off following in my mother’s footsteps here…
  They took a vacation (camping!) when she was about 37 weeks pregnant with their second, (my brother,) and he decided to come early! By the time they decided these contractions were the real thing and they’d better get to the birth center, Joseph was almost born in the car!
   Oh, dear. I’m already starting to hope for and imagine early delivery scenarios. I could still be a whole MONTH away from holding this little one in my arms.
