So close yet so far away

33 Weeks

Time usually moves so quickly, so how is it that it can also go so freakin' slow?
On the work front, I have so much to do but only seven weeks to do it in...on the baby front, I still have seven weeks (at least) to go and am starting to feel that nesting thing, though I would prefer to call it design intervention. Etsy is one of my favorite websites to find really creative handmade nursery gear. We bought the coolest mobile, that I foresee using in different areas in the house once the crib is outgrown. I am not yet going to post images of the nursery corner as I am going to wait until it is completely done! I will say, that having to be relatively immobile makes it hard to go arrange and rearrange the nursery corner and I need to wait for Zach to get anything done that involves movement or exertion or really, getting off the couch. So everything.

In spite of everything I can no longer do, I am feeling very lucky that things have progressed as smoothly as they have and now realize not to take everything for granted.

Thanks to a friend's introduction I am slowly but surely becoming more knowledgeable about the whole cloth diaper thing, so thank you Sarah Schultz for introducing Emily and I. A year ago if you had told me that I would be excited about diapers, I would have told you that you were on crack, but lo and behold, here I am buying diapers like they were stilettos.

Who am I?

Everything I have read keeps saying that I need to pack my hospital bag and I keep thinking that I am going to, but what the heck do I pack? It's not like going to the beach or on vacation or skiing. I mean the only thing that I have thought of that I want to bring is that odd? I figure toothbrush and deodorant is a given, but what else? I mean clothes-wise, it's not like I need to plan for day trips or dinners out, so I am at a total loss. Yeah, yeah, I have read the checklists, but somehow feel that they do not apply to me. So to all those that have been through this...what did you pack? What would you have left out and what would you have included now that you have gone through the experience?
