Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Friday, July 1


I have been counting down the months, days, and minutes to July for what seems like an eternity and I am so glad it's here! Sounds like a great month to become a mommy to me! Today I am officially full term and 38 weeks pregnant! So he could come any day but most likely he'll be camping out for another week or 2.
We installed the carseats in both cars this week and I still am not used to seeing that cute little seat in my car...makes me smile everytime! And thanks to my sweet husband for a mani, pedi, massage certificate....I went and got a manicure so I could officially be hospital ready! I waited off on the pedicure and massage because there are so few comfortable positions for me these days and I didn't want to chance that the massage might be a really bad experience so I figured I would just wait until after the baby. Also my feet have decided to swell up like the marshmallow man so there was no way I was wasting a pedi on these pitiful pups.

This weekend we plan on getting the house ready inside and out for the baby's arrival. That means lots of cleaning. laundry, organizing, etc. Then we'll be celebrating the 4th with my parents and Zach's dad...just doing what you do on the out, making homemade ice cream, watching fireworks, and maybe even going into labor!!

I hope all of you have a wonderful Independence weekend full of family, friends, food, and fireworks. Be safe and if you have a spare minute...pray for a 4th of July baby (I will be!!)!
