My stove is fixed! I baked a cake! Happy feast of the Immaculate Conception!

We had a rather hectic day. We did mass seperatly today because, well, it was one of those rare days where it was a good idea. I went to St. Mary's because they had a noon mass and this lady sitting in front of me had really crazy shoes and I thought, wow, those are like Sheila Klinker shoes, and it actually turned out to BE Sheila Klinker!!!!!!!! How odd.

Anyway I saw John and Katie Schaeffer at mass and then later in the evening when I put my cake in the oven I called them to see if they would like to come share it with us, which they did and it was really fun to talk to them. Their son is so cute too and he seemed to really play well with Zita.

I also went and bought a cute little dresser at an antique store on Main street so now the baby's things are finally neatly folded and put away and I can't beleive how much releif that gives me. Ben asked me if I was going to go into labor now that I had a dresser for the baby. That made me laugh.--which is historically what really throws me into labor. So anyway our little baby now occupies six or seven square feet of our tiny apartment which is a wonderful feat of compacting of which i am quite proud, having limited it to the dresser, the moses basket and the diaper pail.

Why is it that cranky old ladies ALWAYS work at thrift stores? I really liked the lady at the Front Royal Salvation army who had just started working there. She must be the only happy, upbeat middle-aged woman in the world who works in a thift store. She deserves some kind of award.

Lastly here are the last of the belly shots as I am behind. THe first is seven months, the last eight. Look how much huger I am now! Sorry this first picture is tilted so all you folks in neck braces will be cursing the heavens. . .

Wow, what a difference! I bet you'll go soon. I bet it's a boy, too. Were you freaked out at all by my neighbor calling you for that delicious recipe? I hope she calls you for delicious recipes more often because she lives closer to use than you do, so we get to taste ALL the desserts she makes. (And she makes some pretty tasty desserts!) ...maybe you'll pass that particular delicious recipe on to me someday? Perhaps in exchange for a hat stitch count??
