Bowling and the dreaded glucose test

Last weekend, we were supposed to go to the Moon with James's friend but those plans fell through. To be completely honest, I was a little glad. I mean, I was excited to go out since it had been a while but the last time we went out it was very draining. So I was all prepared for spending an evening at home in my pj's when... Amy mentioned bowling! I hadn't been bowling in a while and I really wanted to go but I was skeptical. Was I even supposed to go bowling? Lucky for me, there's google, web md and numerous other sites that let me know it was ok! I made sure to get the lightest ball I could and I drank lots of water. We had so much fun! We bowled three full games and half of another before closing time. Yes, I stayed till closing time! I did have to have a few people bowl for me during the last game because I was getting so tired, but I felt good that I did so well! Here we all are at the fabulous Tucson Bowl.

Here's James taking his anger out on the pins, he did really well!
Here's me trying not to hurt myself throwing my cute pink ball ;)
Today I had my Dr visit with the fun glucose tolerance test. If you remember from a post I did a while back, my mom did not have a great experience with this test so I was slightly nervous. I got the orange flavor which tasted like very, very sweet Sunkist orange soda. I chugged it down and waited. Baby boy sure LOVED it!!! When the Dr was listening for the heartbeat he was moving all around and kicked the Dr! It was pretty funny :) Now I just wait and see what the blood test shows. Hopefully I won't have to go back and do the three hour test! On a side note, I can't wait for this week to be over. I have 15 parent/teacher conferences tomorrow which means I'll be at school from 7 to 7, ugh! Then, I'm taking a mental health day! Well sort of. My sister-in-law is scheduled to have her baby Friday! I'm taking the day off to help out in any way I can. I'm excited to meet my new little nephew! :)
