Mother's day was lovely.

We all slept in until 10, Mark made breakfast kinda.  The french toast didn't turn out so lovely so instead her made pillsbury flaky rolls which was yummy.  Afterwards, we went to buy a tree to plant so we can watch it grow as we live in the house.  We also bought a small strawberry plant, blackberry plant and raspberry plant.  Picked up some herbs, but I don't think I got all the ones I wanted and we didn't get any flowers yet.

There's a bunch of stuff already planted around the house and I just don't know what it all is.  Some things look like they're supposed to be flowers/plants but since it's been such a wacky spring, they look like weeds.  I guess the beauty of it all is that I can rip out whatever I want, but I'd like to know what's already there.  Mark was insisting on ripping out "the thorny bushes" so Ziva doesn't get hurt.  Until I pointed out that those were rose bushes and we should just give them time to bloom.  So, we'll see. 

Mark then mowed the lawn while Ziva napped and I lounged around on the couch.  Spoke to my sister in law for a while which was really nice snce it's been forever.  Mark made an early dinner of fajitas then we played around in the backyard a bunch.  At this point it was bathtime, so I headed out and went food shopping.  All in all a very productive yet relaxing day.  Mark cooked everything but, man oh man, there is soo many more dirty dishes than usual.  I don't even understand how that happens.


Yesterday Ziva had her first dentist appointment.  It went fine but I just don't know if I loved the place.  I guess I expected them to be more fun and animated..which they weren't.  The appt was 9am so we had to wake Ziva up to get her there on time and she was just cranky and tired.  I don't blame her one bit.  I also had my midwife appointment.  Nothing too exciting there.  I have to do the gestational diabetes test within the next two weeks or so.  I don't have to fast and I can drink whatever juice I want (as long as its ~50g of sugar) which is nice.  I'm just incredibly nervous that I'm going to fail the test, have gestational diabetes, and not be able to control it with diet so I won't be able to stay with my midwife.  Speaking of which, she was supposed to be on tv this morning (Good Morning America, maybe??) but we totally forgot to DVR it so that's disappointing.  So yea, I'm nervous about that.
It was definitely not Good Morning America.. here's the clip that was on cbsnews today: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50146659n

Dale mentioned her part was mainly cut but you can see her quickly looking at a woman's belly in her office and then a few seconds later (maybe around 4:40?) she takes a woman's blood pressure.  Glad I got to see it.
