Yesterday I took a tour of a local crisis pregnancy center in the area to learn about their volunteer opportunities. They have many opportunities to volunteer with administrative work, but I also have the ability to go through training next month to be a counselor and work one on one with pregnant clients seeking support. I would really love to work as a counselor, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to make an adequate time commitment once the baby arrives in a couple months. Whatever I decide to do, I am very excited to be involved. What great timing that I'm starting during the 40 Days for Life!

I wrote a post yesterday about how I'm finally getting this housewife thing down. As soon as I finished writing it, I realized that everything is going to change in a few months once the baby is here, and I'm going to have to relearn all over again. Of course, I'm so excited for the baby to arrive, but very anxious about adjusting to the change. If it took me over a year to figure out how to keep house, how long is it going to take to figure out motherhood? Or is that something you ever really have "figured out"?

I've tried several recipes from Pinterest so far, but haven't done much in the way of attempting the many amazing craft/DIY projects I've pinned. I'd love to make one of these monographed/initialed wall decorations for the baby, but not knowing the sex makes it difficult. I'm not saying that if I could do it over again, I would find out the sex, because I definitely wouldn't - I love the mounting excitement that comes with the surprise! But now it leaves me debating whether I should make one of each of these (with the respective initials for the boy and girl names we've chosen)...
