Counting down

Ok, only 4 weeks left. I'm getting excited!! Ange is getting excited!! Our shower is on Sunday and we are very much looking forward to it. It will be the first time that Angela gets to meet most of my cousins on my dad's side. We really don't get together to much so I am really happy that they have all rsvp'd yes to the shower!
Everyone keeps asking me if I am getting nervous about the delivery. I don't feel nervous at this point. I guess I look at it the same way I look at most things that commonly make people nervous. "the time will come, I'll do my best to get through it, my future is unwritten ... But I'll end up coming out the other side with a new experience, one more page in my story "... Really I don't get how nervousness would help the situation any. But maybe that tune will change! Who knows.
Just over 2 weeks of work left if I last that long. A lot of my joints are getting achy and my lady parts are really rather sore.
I have been doing what I can when at home to make sure things are in order for little one's first days at home.
I am anticipating the paperwork for EI and all of that. It frustrates me that I can't do it until I am finished work. I like to have anything related to money and income set up in advance. I went through a time when I was not great at managing and now I try hard to know well in advance how our financials will be organized.
I have still got to pack my bag for the hospital, but am procrastinating. I suppose I'll do it this weekend. I hope.

Glad to see a new post! I am waiting excitedly to hear all about your shower!

Shannon said...

Wow, so close!! It's great that you're not nervous.

Yay for an update.

You get that bag packed now! You could go any day really.

No worries about EI as you won't receive it right away anyway. Make sure you have your record of employment or that they receive it as that caused a huge delay for me with my first mat leave...stupid employer.

Excited to hear how it goes. You make sure and post asap when that baby is born because we'll all be waiting!!!
