G'mornin. Nothing new here. No babies running about just yet. Course, my husband says he expects to go into the hospital right after dinner tonight. Might as well just call ahead and reserve a room, he says.
I've been keeping as busy as possible...lots of random jobs that I have always said I should do someday. Today on the agenda is cleaning out the fish tank and the front hall closet as well as getting a bunch of stuff ready for Salvation Army to pick up on Monday. Some call it nesting, I just call it "doing stuff."
Tonight we're planning a date night with dinner & a movie. We've also been watching the first two seasons of Rome. Along with which I watched Ben Hur the other day.
It is so strange not having to go to work. All of my work has been prepared for my replacements for the next many weeks.
I do find that "letting go" is much harder than I thought it would be. There have been weeks here and there that I have had someone else fill in for me but this is a really long stretch. What if they don't need me anymore? What if my replacements do a better job than I can do? What if? That "you're not good enough" monster is peeking his head around the corner.
The nursery is finally finished. I had someone who was going to do a mural for us, but it didn't seem to work out. Despite that, I think it is cozy and just right.
I actually think it is a little cramped in some spots, but what can you do with an old house and tiny bedrooms?
We have been excessively blessed with all the gifts we have been given. Hand-made blankets & quilts, all of the furniture, clothes and everything. Even most of the items we bought have been with gift cards or gifts of money.
This little girl is going to be well-loved. At least we're really crossing our fingers that it's going to be a girl...otherwise he is going to love pink.
