Anytime now!

Well I'm into my 39th week and I'm dying with anticipation! I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning - only I don't know when Christmas morning will be here - could be tomorrow - could be 3 weeks from now. Come on baby girl, come see the world!! 

Renovations are getting finished bit by bit. The nursery is just about finished. I would like to make a painting or two and we also have to finish the closet. Here it is:

The area rug is only temporary - we have this one on the way:

The Princess is on Mat Leave

I made it to the very end!!! Today was my last day of work! 

The day started out horribly... our one year old dog, Morgan somehow got a hold of Gray's prescription medication, chewed through the cap and ate all of the pills. So instead of leaving to get to work for my very last day... I left the house to rush Morgan to the vet. Luckily I found the empty bottle before I left for work and luckily they were able to get him to spit up the majority of the pills (about 10 to 12). He is at home now and doing just fine. This day could have ended terribly. We are very fortunate!

This morning I went to the vet looking like this:

The day turned out to be pretty good! We had a lot of fun during our Halloween party in Kindergarten today and I received a nice farewell at the school assembly this afternoon. And now I'm at home, ready to enjoy a year with our little one. As soon as she arrives. Any day now chickey!!! I'll be 38 weeks in a couple of days. 

I spent my last day at work as a Princess. The Paper Bag Princess.

Dearest Husband...

Thank you for putting up with me and being patient with me during this time of instability and irrationality. 

I would say, for the most part, my mood has been great! Fantastic! But dare to make the wrong face or make a sigh at the wrong moment and the tears start to flow. I'm sorry to put you through that. I love you! Thank you for loving me.

Oh the joys of pregnancy. But we are almost there!!! I'm 35 weeks! Could be only a couple more weeks. Could be another 7 (please no!). 

A lot of people have been commenting that they think she's coming early. I really hope so. My sciatica has been really painful. Especially after a day of teaching Kindergarten. I have to remember to try and rest during the day (like that's going to happen!).  It's been feeling better this weekend - since I've been able to take it easy. 

I just found out the my mom (our birth partner) will be away the weekend of the ninth full moon! Oh dear. Now I'm really convinced it's going to happen that weekend! She told me to wait until Monday - there's less staff on the weekend. Okay, I'll wait :)
