I've neglected the blog for a week.
Am I really coming back to blogging with a post about almonds?
Yes. Because I'm pregnant. And pregnancy is the best excuse ever... next to "TBI", which is the one Chance is using these days.
Chance: "I can't take out the trash, I've had a TBI."
TBI: Traumatic Brain Injury
He's also claiming that it's going to get him out of changing diapers come September. He's wrong.
Oh and after his CT scan* today he broke a tooth (eating a potato chip at lunch). So the nursing gig has really been kicked into high-gear. We have plans to get the tooth fixed tomorrow.
Back to the almonds.
Those Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds are really, really good. Joan shared some with me back in December... and I was hooked, but we don't get to Sam's Club that often. Well today, we ran through Sam's after the CT scan and I picked up a gallon. I highly recommend them. They aren't chocolate-dipped. They are dusted with a cocoa powder that is heaven on earth. Try 'em. Let me know what you think.
Also note: He's driving again. Watch out. The doctor said he was allowed to after 2 weeks. Today is his first day of freedom. Mine too. I have felt very much like a soccer mom these last couple of weeks.
I cannot believe I have this photo of him (above). We took a trip (can't remember where we went) but on the way home it was late and I fell asleep in the car. When I woke up and looked over at him he had his motorcycle helmet on. He had been wearing it for quite some time and was waiting for me to wake up.
He kinda looks like a Power Ranger.
He's not wearing it today, but I think it might not be a bad idea.
And a side note... we have an ultrasound on Thursday where we will get confirmation that the peanut is a girl... or find out that she is actually a he. But anyway, I've been ordering some pink paint samples... more on that later.

* - we won't have results from today's CT scan until next doctor's appointment on 4/30, but Chance is feeling great and we are still blown away everyday but everyone's love and support. Thanks again!
