A Perfect Day

Today was a perfect day. I think the catch is having had a really great night's sleep. Not too many contractions since Friday/Saturday a.m. I've had some off and on, but not consistently.

So, today is the first day in about a week that I woke with renewed energy. Thus, I've been cooking and cleaning since before 8 a.m. My feet are tired, but I feel pretty good otherwise. Working on laundry with J's help. Mom came by and we worked on readying baby boy's room a bit more. I get so far and then can't do much else...but little by little...

Tonight was official "Everyone Pitch in and Clean M's Room" night. Ha. We actually have these periodically. Her room gets like any almost 3 yr old's would. But I don't think I've ever seen it quite like this! Usually if there is a mess, it's at least somewhat organized...but this was total mayhem. But, not anymore! I probably spent well over an hour cleaning. She helped of course, and J helped. Then while they were doing the bath thing, I continued to clean, straighten, organize, get rid of broken toys, items we never use, fix some things that had come apart temporarily, sift through shoes that no longer fit. And lastly, I packed her a little bag in the event that I labor and she needs to go with someone overnite or even all day. So, she is officially ready for the event. AND I clipped her toenails! Seriously! I just about feel like supermom!

The kitchen is a mess though cause of all the cooking I've been doing. Made a huge batch of bran muffins and froze for after the boy. Made honey croissants for b'fast, with sausage for J and M. Made my homemade favorite decaf, sugar free, cold coffee beverage as my own morning treat. I did dishes only to dirty them again! Ha! Did the leftover thing for lunch, but made b'fast casserole for sup since I needed to use the rest of the sausage before it went bad. I paired that with a few of the bran muffins that wouldn't fit in the fridge. I cleaned out the fridge and freezer to make room for some cooking I'm hoping to do tomorrow (for after the boy). That's about all so far, but I'm not sure I'm done yet. I'll give myself maybe another hour or hour and a half, but then it's off to bed.

I'll need my sleep as my mom says these next several days are reserved for walking the boy out. Meaning I suppose I'll do a lot of walking in the hopes that he'll decide he's ready to join us! We are shooting for Wednesday! Ha! as if that matters. Cause my sis can't really come till Wednesday after work, and one of my fave midwife's is on call, and its a full moon. We shall see. With all this anticipation, murphey's law would have me be almost 2 weeks late! Only God truly knows! But I do wait with excitement and anticipation.
