Despite what I said yesterday, I did not end up getting up at 4 AM this morning.  The fact that I could sleep in coupled with the fact that I am incredibly sore from all the workouts amounted to too high a hill for my motivation to climb.  So I slept in until 7:30, but plan on getting to the gym for my Friday cardio workout this evening around 8 PM or so.

I found a shorter route to the doctor this morning.  When we got there, she wanted to take our pictures, so the appointed started with smiles.  It ended with smiles, too.  We had another ultrasound, got a few more pictures, and at a little more than 21 weeks, everything is looking good.

I dropped Kelly off at home, packed my lunch and headed into the office for half a day of work (half of which is consumed by meetings).
