I am relaxed.

I would say huzzah for election day because now all the obnoxious political backbiting all over the internets will stop, but who am I kidding? That nonsense never stops.

T-Rex is head down and facing the correct direction, but otherwise shows no inclination to leave his comfy home anytime soon. Less than a week until the due date! We'll see how things play out.

The nursery is all done except for one last decoration project. I'll do a nifty reveal post soon. Maybe.

I still need to clean out my car and install the carseat in one car or another. But at least we have the carseat now, which we didn't before Friday.

I am super stoked to see the diaper bag Jessi made for him. It should be in the mail tomorrow, gah! (Also, if you like fun crafty stuff, you should definitely be following her blog.)

The DDH picked out some freezer-cooking recipes and we bought ingredients yesterday. I have a lot of cooking and chopping and labeling in my future, if T-Rex cooperates. But it will be good to have the freezer stocked.

I have a To Do list and would like to check everything off it, but there's nothing I really feel compelled to do anymore. Things will get done, or they won't, and who really cares? Other than installing the car seat. But really, the DDH can do that after T-Rex is born and before he comes home, if necessary.

Hmm. I should probably clean the rabbit's cage, too. Because heaven knows no one else will do it for me, which means it likely won't be done again until a couple weeks after T-Rex arrives, and ewww. Poor Meg.

Gratuitous Rabbit Picture.
What else? I don't know. I am content to wait, though I don't like uncertainty and it would be nice to have a definitive date and time to put on the schedule. In the meantime, I'm trying to enjoy these last few days of just me, the DDH, and the dogs. Of life without diaper changes and car seats and scheduling everything around a kiddo or three. I look forward to meeting T-Rex, but I'm not really in any rush.

I feel like I'll jinx it by saying work has been going better, but it has. It helps to know that I don't have more than two weeks left here. It's the only thing that threatens this relaxed and peaceful calm I've been feeling, though.

Also, and this is very important: We've eaten all the Halloween candy and I really shouldn't replace it with Christmas candy right away, but I want to. Hmph.


  1. Lol, definitely replace it with Christmas candy, that's a great idea! :-)

    1. Those peppermint bark Hershey's Kisses are like crack, I swear.

  2. Amen to letting the to do list go and enjoying these last days:-).

    1. Immediately after writing this I spent an hour creating some new, elaborate to do lists. Because there's a difference between not stressing about the to do lists and just not accomplishing things that I really would like to do. :-)
