Five more days until my due date. That means baby can come any time now. I SAY -- BABY CAN COME ANY TIME NOW...!
Mostly we're just excited to meet her so the sooner the better. But who knows, she might not decide to come until December. But as most of you who know me (and Kurt) if this baby is late, she is clearly no child of mine!
To pass the time I've been working on a VFX bid over at Sony. They called last week and said, "We know it might be nuts to ask so close to your due date, but could you come in and help us out?" It took me about .5 seconds to say YES!! So instead of waiting around the house I can wait in a nice office, 7 minutes from home, 15 minutes from the hospital (if need be), keeping busy, passing the time faster and making money. Win win win! I'll be there next week if the Sweet Potato remains in the oven.
For Turkey Day we are going to a potluck at a friend's house. We are only staying a short time (just in time to eat!) as I do get quite tired in big social situations. Afterward we will have dessert here with Kurt's mom. (She was also invited to the potluck but chose the quieter dessert-only option instead.) Yesterday Kurt bolted out of the house at 10am to get to the Apple Pan to buy a chocolate cream pie (his favorite) and a pumpkin pie (my favorite). If baby hasn't come this weekend, I anticipate a lot of pumpking pie meals. Heaven!
Really I am just so thankful for all we have and how healthy I've been through this pregnancy. I'm still amazed at how it's been so much easier than I ever imagined. I am lucky and grateful and happy and wouldn't trade with anyone.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day no matter where you are and who you are with.
