I'm wondering if this is really finally it. A few minutes ago I dowloaded the Pandora and Spotify apps onto my ipod because what fun is it to be in labor if you don't troll other people's carefully crafted l&d playlists?
Now I think I'll go have a little date with my flattening iron. If that goes well, maybe a follow-up meeting with a tube of concealer and some lip gloss. A girl has to have her priorities, okay?
I know you're worried so let me assure you- the straightening went well. I had to IG a pic just in case this is finally the real thing of course.
concealer- check. lip gloss- check. a little eyebrow tweezing- check.
Just remembered that Lizzy used my big girl camera to take pictures of ingredients for chocolate macaroons she made yesterday. Maybe I'll clear off the memory card real quick...
(Pharrell's "Happy" just came on this gal's playlist. This is fun.)
How presh is this picture of Mary? This was the first day that the new ducklings and chicks got to explore the great out of doors (read: a small pen set up inside our front yard) and everybody just had so. much. fun.
Sigh. I don't know. I feel like yes, then I feel like no. As always these days. Maybe I'll pause the music and give sleeping another try? Boy it pains me to even mumble such a thing.
Forget it. I don't know if I'm really in labor or not, but sleeping ain't happening.
Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard is playing right now. Oh. Em. Gee. How I do love Paul Simon.
So, I guess I've been up all night. Even if baby decides not to come today, I'm probably going to need your prayers to make it through the afternoon without melting down in a pile of pathetic, self-pitying, sleep deprived goo with no newborn to snuggle. If this DOES turn out to be IT (still undecided. I know. How? How can I have gone through real, uninduced, productive labor so many times and still be uncertain about these things?), I'll need your prayers for a different reason.
Anyway, as soon as I know for sure for sure for sure, I'll be sure to update on the facebook and the twitter and the IG all as promised. If you wanna follow along, I've decided to resurrect my Mare Bear hashtag: #babyunseen
See y'all on the other side...of something!
