I was 39 weeks yesterday! (My ticker is off by a day.)
Rosie was born by now. Ada still had three days to go. I wonder what Baby H will choose…
This morning I woke up feeling not pregnant at all. Like full of energy, not even sick. Weird? I think I remember this happening right before Rosie was born also. With Ada I never felt that horrible, so it wasn’t as big of a deal.
Today was apparently nesting day. I organized All The Things, ate a ton of food, and now I’m worn out.
Tomorrow I need to vacuum (always!), do the dishes (again, always!), finish two loads of laundry and put them away (another daily chore…), clean the bathroom, finish deep cleaning the car and put the baby’s car seat in it, buy straw for the bunnies, and paint my toenails. That’s not as much as it sounds, considering the daily chores will only take like an hour. Everything else here is as complete as it’s going to get–right down to organizing both storage sheds outside and cleaning the porch.
Unfortunately Tyler has to work tomorrow night. I hate six day work weeks with a passion. That means he won’t get home until early morning on Sunday morning, so he’ll have to sleep away Sunday. Then back to work on Monday. Basically no break.
Of course one of those days or nights I may give birth…
Aside from feeling poorly I’m relieved that all the big organizing and nesting projects are complete.
I’ll leave you with this video. I can’t remember if I shared it or not. I made it in the dark with only the porch light, which is why it’s kind of sketchy.
Lumpy Eyes is the toad that comes out at dusk every night by the back door. You’d think it would go somewhere else because the kids torture it by manhandling it and force feeding it bugs, but nope. It’s there at the back door almost every night and they spend at least 45 minutes playing with it before I drag them in to wash up and go to bed. We have trouble going to bed early living out here.
(Hopefully the video is showing up when I save. It’s not for me, but my internet is unstable so I can’t really tell. My internet is 0.8 mbps speed. I have to go to my parent’s house to upload pictures and videos, aside from iPhone photos.)
