completely. since 5 o' clock this morning.
so far (6 hours later) ... i've scrubbed the kitchen completely, organized the baby's room a bit more, dusted and washed all of the blinds in the dining room/kitchen, washed the baby clothing, washed walls and windows and baseboards ...
the bathroom is next ... along with the bedrooms.
the girls have been given the basement playroom job.
i regretfully declined a weekend away at cupcake '10 ... i was registered and everything ... and then last week finally decided that i couldn't leave. i was feeling overwhelmed with what i needed to do. and i wasn't feeling confident - my resolution for the year. the girls there are probably better off given my attitude today - i'm sure i would have been knocking on doors attempting to clean their rooms at dark o' thirty this morning. although i'm sad that i didn't get to meet so many amazing women.
and last night ... i made my husband feel horrible for working as a pilot. yeah ... so nice of me, huh? i was having contractions and feeling really lonely and worried and not confident about the having of a baby ... and the not knowing when. i didn't want to overwhelm anyone else ... because i'm one of those people that hates to bother others when i didn't know for sure what was happening and if anything would even happen. so instead i cried on the phone to my poor husband. who felt awfully guilty for being way out on the east coast as his poor pregnant wife is putting kids to bed and worrying about an upcoming baby.
and i figured in the midst of it all ...
it was time for a giveaway ... but one that is fun for me ... AND fun for you ... hopefully.
let's make some guesses about when baby boy blue will finally make his appearance!
in your comment ...
1. give me your best guess on date?
-- both girls were 14 and 15 days early ... and my current due date is 2/11 (i know ... it seems kinda too far away.)
2. when?? morning/afternoon/middle of the night?
-- stella was born at 4:28 pm and cora was born at 2:55 am.
closest guess by date will win a hand stamped silver necklace from me ...
i'll use the time of day if we have more than one guess on a particular date ...
and comments will be closed ... next sunday ... 1/17 in the evening ... or earlier ... if the baby decides to join us sooner!
what names or words would you like to have close to your heart on a day like today?
