No picture this week, because I am tired and in my PJs and I really look exactly the same as my last picture...just huge. If I sound a little grouchy it's because I am today. I had my doctor appointment and the good news is that my little one has finally dropped. My doc said that she is as low as she can get without me having to push. However, I am still at a "1" and pretty thick. We set an induction date for a week from today 12/5. I am hoping that I go into labor before then. I measured 40cm today and everything else seemed fine...she is just getting bigger and bigger. John and I ran tons of errands tonight so that I could walk around. I came home and did the laundry and cleaned the kitchen and scrubbed the bathtub and sinks and I am just trying to be as active as possible in order to try to induce my own labor. Chances are I am going to have a December baby. I am pretty miserable at this moment, but I do have good moments throughout the day, so it isn't too bad. I just keep telling myself that at MOST by this time next week, I will have a precious little baby. Please continue to think good thoughts for me. Next post should have some exciting news and pictures!
I was tagged by Tamar...
This tag is about John my husband
What is his name? John Lloyd Calderwood
How long have you been married? 2 years last September
How long did you date? Engaged after 2 and married 4 months after that
How old is he? 33
Who eats more? John. He is like a garbage disposal. Always looking into the fridge or pantry for something to snack on.
Who said I love you first? John tricked me into saying it first. He kept saying "I really really really really like you". Finally I just said, "If you love me, just say it". He said "Do you love me?" So, I admitted it.
Who is taller? John. He is 6'1'' and I am 5' 7''
Who sings better? Me, even though I think John has a very nice voice!
Who is smarter? I will say John because he is so good at science and math and I always thought that you had to be a genius to do well in those areas. However, I am stronger in historical topics and literature. I also have a photgraphic memory.
Whose temper is worse? John's and I think he would be the first to admit it.
Who does the laundry? We both do. John is very helpful!
Who does the dishes? I load and unload the dishwasher and John cleans the dishes that don't go into the dishwasher.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If you stand at the bottom of the bed and are looking at the bed then I am on the right side and I HAVE to be on that side. Drives John crazy sometimes. He likes to mix it up.
Who pays the bills? Me
Who mows the lawn? All John. I do not like yard work.
Who cooks dinner? Me, when I decide to make it.
Who drives when you are together? We take turns in the car, but John always drives the truck.
Who is more stubborn? Toss up. One of the things that we have to continiously work on.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Toss up again, see above.
Whose parents do you see the most? John's. They only live a litle over 2 hours away so it is easier and cheaper to see them more often. We will miss them when they leave for Cambodia!Who proposed? John
Who has more friends? I don't know. We both have a lot of the same friends and each have a few old friends that we keep in touch with.
Who has more siblings? John. I only have 3 sisters. He has 3 sisters and a brother.
Who wears the pants in the family? We both do. John makes most of the decisions, but he always consults with me first to get my thoughts and we almost always agree before a firm decision is made.
I tag Amanda, Jocelyn, Tara & Aunt Ginger :)

We brought our camera up to Hayden with us, but we were losers and didn't take any pictures. We had a great time even though it was such a short visit. Thanksgiving dinner was so good and it was so nice to have all of the Calderwood family together. After a day of eating and more eating we all got together and played this battle kareoke game on Jalyn's playstation which was pretty fun and I sat out and watched when they played guitar hero ( I only like playing games that I am good at). Thanksgiving night was horrible for John and I as I don't think that we got ANY sleep. No joke. I had contractions that were pretty bad and only felt better if I was sitting or walking. The second I laid down I thought I was going to die. After 2 hours and almost deciding to drive home the pain subsided. We were both so tired that we stayed home on Black Friday with the kids and everyone else went shopping. Our dogs ran away (we weren't watching them closely) off into the woods. John went looking for them and then when he came back with no luck, I went searching as well. I was a wreck. I pictured them drowning in the lake (they love the lake and I pictured them just diving in and sinking because of the cold). I thought I lost my dogs forever and could not stop sobbing (good thing everyone was shopping). 3 hours later the dogs came home by themselves. Lucky hurt his foot and was bleeding pretty bad. John made a make-shift bandage sock for him. We drove home later that afternoon without incident. John and I were both looking forward to a night of good sleep now that we were home. I woke up at 2am and smelled something awful...I thought it was our humidifier, but checked on the dogs anyway and found that Chloe got sick and pooped all over the tile AND the rug. So, John and I srubbed down the living room and kitchen until about 3am. So much for sleep. The dogs are healthy now and we seem to be getting back to normal. No baby news yet...hopefully soon.

Today John turned the big thirty three and is still the best looking man in the world. He seems to have a had a good birthday today. It all started last night when he decided to treat himself to an early birthday gift. He went to bed before I did and once I came to bed I was having a hard time falling asleep and I just could not get comfortable. Around 2 or 3am after I got up to use the restroom, which is quite the norm nowadays, I realized why I was so uncomfortable. John had decided to steal my pillow and was sleeping soundly. The only thing that stopped me from ripping it out from under him was that it was his birthday. In the morning when I confronted him he could not stop laughing and thought it was hilarious. I bought John a pair of Asics Nimbus 9 running shoes. He was very surprised and loves them. We had our friends the Evans over for dinner and cake and ice cream and they bought John a new tail light for his bike and some arm warmers that are modeled in the pictures. I think he has had a good day.
