As I write this, actually, I am unable to sleep because nobody told my daughter that when mom is tired it means no more kicking, squirming, and rolling around. Kids these days...
Like all my long unexplained hiatuses, it's because life just got too busy. I mean, come on, I'm 32 weeks pregnant! 32 WEEKS!! How did this happen already? I can only do a fraction of the things I used to be able to do without having to take a massive break to catch my breath.
Can I share with you just a tidbit of my to-do list?
1. We're in the middle of moving. We have to be out by the end of this month. I highly recommend all future pregnant woman to NOT move while you're pregnant. Especially if you're like me (stubborn and OCD) and you have a busy husband. This means I have to do little things and then wait for Nick to come home, when he has free time, so I can tell him that I want this one box moved on top of this box so I have more room to pack all the other little things and lay out boxes. It's a horrible problem to have.
2. I have a baby/pregnancy to-do list that is a mile long. Seriously, but not literally. I need to decide on a doctor for her when she pops out, what kind of immunizations I want to do (I don't want them all), schedule a hospital tour, watch some informational videos and such on birthing/labor, figure out insurance, and a million other things. And all of this leads me to number 3...
3. I'm still working full-time. I know many pregnant work full-time up until a week or so before the birth and I don't know how they do it. My last week is the end of this month. I can't WAIT until I get a breather, which includes me not having to wake up at 4 am to work until 5:30 pm.
4. There are only 8 weeks until my due date. This means that my entire list of things I need to buy before she gets here needs to be ready to go before then. I don't want to have this little one two weeks early and discover that I have no diaper wipes. No thank you.
This doesn't belong on a to-do list, but we're actually leaving for a week-long family vacation on Friday. I'm ready for a break and some hopefully relaxing, much needed floating time on the lake. This also means that while I disappeared for way too long, I'm disappearing again for another week because there is no internet/cell phone service where we are going.
Now that I have given you my entire list of
Until next time...
