A List

Here is a list of things that are hard to do when in a delicate condition:

  1. Tie your shoes. Luckily, I can still fit into all my shoes, as I do not have swollen ankles this time around. But, I have to wear slip-ons, as I cannot tie.
  2. Bend over to pick something up. Not only can you not bend, but your lovely elastic waisted pants will fall down.
  3. Chase your 3 year old.
  4. Walk up the stairs without being winded.
  5. Parallel parking. Seriously? Twisting?
  6. Have a coherent thought.
  7. Carrying a laundry basket.
  8. Changing the sheets on a bunk bed.
  9. Grocery shop without a list. But, that ties into #6.
  10. Stand, sit, or lie down for a lengthy amount of time. Position switching is a must.

I am so ready to be done! The 16th seems like a long time from now.

I have been thinking of you, JLK. I wasn't sure when your due date was. I pray all goes well for you and the babe. Hugs to all of you.

Ha! I don't think you can change the sheets on a bunk bed even when you're not in a delicate condition. The 16th is zooming up here quickly -- I hope everything goes perfectly!

Almost here, almost here! You can do it!

Amen, sistah!

The other day I really needed to put boots on but the task was pretty much impossible so I settled for some slip-on shoes. I can't do #5 even when I'm not pregnant.

Well, today is over. You're having the baby on Wednesday, so you don't count it, which means that you only have two more days to be pregnant. Easy peasy.

Feel free to laugh at me...It is stressing me out that you are having a baby so close to Christmas. That is combining two very stress events in my opinion. I seriously have lost sleep over worrying about you. Good luck on the 16th!

TeamZ -- Don't stress, please. This is the second time we've done this, and this time we are far more ready. We actually have a crib set up this time! You are sweet to worry. If you would like to come help, we won't turn you away ;)
