The final countdown...

Last night I asked Andrew what he thought would happen first:

A) I'd finish biking from Price, UT to San Fransisco, CA
B) I'd finish the baby blanket I'm working on
C) I'd finish reading the Book of Mormon
D) I'd finish incubating this baby

"Whoa! No way!" he said. "Bike. Blanket. Book of Mormon. Baby."

Yes. I'm just that good at planning my hobbies (for lack of a better word) around alliteration.

And, yes. Figuring that out really made Andrew's night.

When we left off bike riding at the end of last year we'd completed 1752 of 2438 miles of our hypothetical journey, leaving us stranded around Price, UT, with 686 miles left to go. I have covered 635 miles since I started biking again (when I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes) which is like 30 miles more than I biked last year. I have fifty miles left until we reach our destination, so finishing this is a totally doable feat...unless I have the baby tomorrow.

While I bike I've been alternating between reading, crocheting, and playing Two Dots. I finished a few novels before I figured I could move my scripture study to that time as well, so that's what I do for my morning bike ride now. I'm up to Moroni 5 so I'm almost finished. Five chapters left to go. I'm sure I'll finish either tomorrow or the day after.

As far as the blanket is concerned, I finished crocheting 196 flowers. I stitched them into fourteen rows of fourteen and so far have sewn six of those rows together. I'm going to work on it some more tonight so that will bring me even closer to finishing. It's not a very big blanket but it'll do (pig). Because remember that time Andrew told me it was a crazy idea and I said, "Whatever. It'll be super cute!" Turns out he was right; it was kind of a crazy idea.

The baby, is, in my opinion, ready to make her grand entrance any day now. I had a good appointment today (with no shots!) and we're really just playing the waiting game. My progesterone is wearing off so we'll see what this week brings. As much as I'd like her to come early enough that she's not, you know, born on Benjamin's birthday or something ridiculous like that I'm still completely geared up to be pregnant for a few more weeks.

But if she doesn't come soon I'm clearly going to run out of projects.

So, what's it going to be? Bike. Blanket. Book of Mormon. Baby.

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
