Today’s Status Report: I am tired. I’ve been up since 4:30. I got out of bed at 5 and got to work around the house. Basically, I wore myself out while simultaneously getting nothing real done.
When I got to work this morning, I loaded up my usual morning news page only to discover that they are not posting today for a Day Without Women, which cut a significant chunk of time from my morning work. I am hours ahead now. I am probably going to run out of work today.
I am going to have to come up with a way to keep myself awake and alert for the next six hours. There is some work to be done, the finishing touches on Summer Reading and a massive order to be placed, and there are some things that I can do, like run to Meijer for some supplies. I guess I can read a bit. I’ll make sure there is nothing else that I need to do before my leave.
And then I’m home free, you guys. I have until my leave to basically not go into labor. At least at work.
One of the lists I plan to make today is what, exactly, needs to be done in what order in the house. There is a lot of “this before that” that needs to be done. Last night I got a little nagged about not being ready yet but there’s not much that I can do right now until other things are done. Preparation has never been our strong suit.
Sometimes it really weirds me out that I’m going to have a baby by the end of this month. It doesn’t seem possible. But that’s life.
