The Due Date Come... and Goes.

*sigh* It's been a long day. This whole week of anticipation is hard for someone who has the patience equalling that of my one year old. I could blame my husband for getting my hopes up in eager expectation that the baby was going to come last weekend, but alas, my frustration is my own. And it's on my mind that everytime I place a phone call or pick up the phone the first question on the persons mind on the other end of the phone is "has she had the baby yet?" I might just stop answering the phone until I have this kid. =)

I know that this quiet period BEFORE he arrives is the calmest time I'm going to have for a good long while so I'm trying to take advantage of it. It feels like I'm watching a pot try to boil so I've tried planning stuff throughout the week so that I can keep my mind on other things. I've been organizing our digital photos, catching up on some scrapbooking, making some cards, getting in touch with old friends and generally staying on top of the stuff that tends to pile up(meals, laundry, dirty bathrooms, etc). It will be interesting to see just how much of an explosion occurs once I do have this kid and have no energy to balance all of the stuff that's on my plate right now. I guess I have 6-8 weeks to figure that out before I add one more thing (work) into the mix.

Well, I'm off to go drown my sorrows in an O'Douls. At least I can celebrate the day - even if it is turning out to be a non-event!

Maybe if you schedule lunch with me something will happen. :) Need a lunch date this week to keep your mind off things? Let me know!
