2 more weeks of school, 2 more weeks of clinic, 7 more weeks of pregnancy!

I can't believe I'm so close to being done with school. This is my last week with real classes and next week is just finals. Woo!

Would you like to know what I realized today? Today I realized that in 3 weeks I will be full term and safe to have Ali any day after that. I can't believe it.

I'm a handywoman!

Last night, our toilet got clogged. I plunged and plunged until I couldn't plunge anymore! I finally decided to let it sit over night. Maybe the clog would soak and soften and be easier in the morning. When morning comes, nothing has changed. I plunge and plunge, but to no use. I decided to go back to bed and worry about it when I was more awake. I looked at the toilet from our bedroom only to realize that now water was coming back up! Our bathroom was flooded and it was starting to seep into the carpet in the hall! Aaaah! Trevor starts saying we should call the landlord. But we'd have to foot the plumbing bill, and we just can't afford that right now. Then he says to call my brother, who is a plumber. But it's so early in the morning AND it's Jason's birthday today (Happy Birthday Big Brother). Who wants a poop call on their birthday? Instead, I remembered reading about a website that has thrifty ways of fixing things. I found it, and a few squirts of dishsoap and pots of boiling water later, our toilet is flushing beautifully! Cost: 10 cents. Pride of fixing something and actually being handy:Priceless.
Also, Happy Birthday to Cindy Lou too!

Ideas? Anyone?

Are you familiar with Bruxism, the grinding or clenching of teeth at night? I barely sleep as it is anymore being pregnant, but Trevor's bruxism is driving me crazy. I can't stand that sound! After 2 hours of being kept awake last night, I finally got up and moved to the couch-where I slept better than I have in a while. We're ready to try anything to help this. If any of you have any ideas, please feel free to share. I would like to sleep next to my husband again, but I don't know if that's happening anytime soon!

This year's mountain man rendezvous

This is basically what it looks like throughout the camp. Authentic pioneer-like tents and teepees.

Typical Camp. Everyone dresses up.
Including the little ones.

This is where Trevor works the entire weekend. I help a little bit if someone needs a break, or for food runs. It's the Camp Canteen Bison Brew root beer stand. Some of the best home made root beer and cream soda ever!

View from behind the counter, as Shantel sets up.

How root beer is made the pioneer way.

Our collectible jug.

I went too crazy and had to see Trevor. I just couldn't stand one more night without him, so I made it to Wyoming on Sunday morning and stayed with him until Monday night. And now, some candids.
