Halloween Party

On Saturday we went to my parents wards trunk-or treat. Me and Matt were lame and didn't dress up, but I did go in my super cool wheelchair!! I still was up walking around way too much, and have been paying for it ever since, but that's ok becuase it was so fun. There was good food, fun friends there, and lots of candy. My Dad won the award for "craziest costume" and he was very proud of that fact. Not that his costume was that crazy, it's just that people don't really expect the Bishop to come dressed as a thug. And not only did he dress the part, he walked the part, and talked the part, and thought he was pretty cool!! When I was looking at the pictures from this night Matt looks kinda high in all of them, makes you wonder huh?!?!?! J/K

My big adventure

33 weeks and 5 days. I know I've been a slacker with posting, but really how much do I have to say when I never leave the house. I do have something new to tell, and it's not exciting, but it's something. So Wednesday I went to the doctor for a check-up. I'm 60% efaced (I don't know how to spell that)and my cervix is really soft, so he said that he will probably come between 36 and 38 weeks, wow that's really soon!! So he also said that since I'm doing good that I can occasionally leave the house and go to dinner or a movie or something. So on Friday my Mom was going to Costco and I decided to go with her in my wheelchair. It is so not easy to try to shop in a wheelchair! My mom pushed me in the chair and I steered the cart with my feet, she would say turn left and we would make a really wide turn. Yes we definintely got some crazy looks. People are not all that couteous to people in a wheelchair,they either stare at you or ignore you. They didn't even yield to us, so I almost got in a couple fender benders. I know that I must have looked a little strange to anyone who really looked at me because I obviously had use of my legs, so I guess that I must have looked just like a really lazy person. Then on Saturday I went with Matt to JC Penny to get him some work/church clothes. That was not so easy, at least at Costco the rows are huge. The rows were really narrow and my chair couldn't fit through, and Matt walks so fast I had some major motion sickness when we left. It was an eventful weekend and it was so nice to be out of the house. So as hard as this bed rest thing has been, at least it's only temporary and I'm so thankful for 2 good legs that work.
