So tomorrow the Comcast guy (or gal) comes out to hook us up with high-speed Internet!!!! I am SO EXCITED!!! If we weren't in Andrews Holler (that's how they say "hollow" around these parts) maybe we would have better luck with this Verizon Broadband thing.

Things have been crazy around here lately. My mom came out on Thursday and we took a little hike and a dip in the creek at GW Forest. It was really nice and Anastasia had a blast with "Monie" (moh-nee) the new name she calls my mom. I have no idea where she came up with that. My mom's name is Kathy and we never call her that. lol.

Then Friday I had a doctor's appointment in Fairfax and I took the scenic way out there because I took a stop in Winchester. I finally got to meet Dr. Bruchalski who is awesome. I have met most of the other doctors in the practice and finally got him this week. Its always nice to have a doctor tell you how you are the ideal patient and the perfect size and weight when you are tempted to feel like a big FAT COW. :) Overall I could just sense the peace that surrounds his character and I understand how he is a HUGE asset to the pro-life movement. He doesn't sit there and preach, he makes a point to use his profession and gifts to change lives and give life. What a gem!

Saturday we were lazy as long as possible before the empty fridge determined that I should go out in the rain and get groceries. Then I cleaned a bit between Anastasia's fits of rage (she didn't nap). Nick was working on the bathroom and came running out bleeding all over the place. He had cut himself and it seemed really bad so we put a towel on it and headed to the ER. We got there and decided that the bleeding had in fact stopped and that we didn't really need to waste our money and time to go in there. So we went home and Anastasia had fallen asleep at this point (FINALLY) but had a really rough night of sleep.

Sunday we had our friends Andrew and Regina and their 6 kids over for lunch after church. I thought it would be totally chaotic especially when the large loaf of bread I bought had been completely consumed and buried in Anastasia's bed by our resident fur ball. Thankfully there was more than enough food to go around and all of the kids were so good. Anastasia had a blast! Our tiny house seemed very accommodating which was definitely awesome! I am definitely more comfortable entertaining in this house than I ever have been before despite its quirks.

Today I washed all the dishes that I didn't feel like doing yesterday and listened to talk radio (what has Nick done to me?!?!) Then Nick brought home Brats and kraut from work for dinner (read his blog for more info on the German goodness he got his hands on), and not only helped cook it but also did the dishes afterwards! What a treat for me.

I also got my voter registration card in the mail a few days ago. DMV had my address all screwed up so it took a while to get it. I have never been so excited about an election before!!! and now I've got the power to decide! wahahahaha.

Dr. B rocks. He has delivered the last 3 of our 4 children. He rules.

Awesome! I hope that I am lucky enough to get him in the delivery room... but I like all the other doctors too so I won't be TOO dissapointed.

That is so cool that you're going to Dr. Bruchalski's practice. Isn't he just the best?! Back in the day, when pregnant with Michael and later Teresa, I had Dr. B all the time! He was so great. He IS so great. Very straigh-forward, which I love, and also compassionate and understanding and, just the best. He even prayed for me several times during my visits to his office! He did it in such a way that seemed natural and not forced or anything. He is a very blessed individual. Love him to pieces!
