Last year, we had quite the trouble trying to locate a tree in Hermiston before December 10th, well, apparently they read my blog and so there are tree lots all over the city and have been up since Thanksgiving! Unfortunately, I just barely got the decorations and tree stand down, and due to unforeseen school deadlines, we will have to wait until at least Friday evening to pick up a fresh tree! It's exhausting! By then there are only two weeks til Christmas! Lame!
Next week I go to working three days a week at the Chamber. But, it's not all R&R. I have my stats final to take next week - which means catching up on my Stats, too. Plus, the apartment has been a bit neglected and needs some thorough cleaning, so until that happens, don't ask to use our restroom. Not to mention Christmas shopping & crafting & wrapping & movie watching (notice the lack of baking in there). As well as prepping for the babester's arrival. I haven't packed the hospital bags, washed the clothes, purchased a crib mattress, installed the car seat, put stuff away in the changing table..... it's hard!
And so I'm torn - some folks have requested a Christmas arrival of the baby. But, I have to say, I don't think I'm ready! Except .....
(To be sung in your head to the tune of
"My Favorite Things" )
Seaweed and rice all rolled with some tuna
Flowing shirts that don’t make me a balloon
Fingers that don’t swell around wedding rings
These are a few of my favorite things
Sitting at the salon with foil in my hairNot needing assistance to get out of my chairUsing the restroom less times than 18These are a few of my favorite things
When I feel her moveWhen I’m scared of birthWhen I’m not going madI simply remember my favorite thingsAnd then I want her out so bad!
