38 Weeks: The descent into madness

Do you see these lists? These are the lists of a crazy person. A crazy person who was up at 5 a.m. yesterday, vacuuming the laundry room and washing baby clothes. Sterilizing baby bottles that might see some action a month from now. Maybe.

But look, my little fashion maven's closet is pretty well in order.

I wish I could say the same for my closet. I got as far as taking everything out of it before I lost my momentum and needed a rest.

Oh, and here is my hospital bag. Yeah, probably going to want to get hopping on that one.

I cried today because the cat wouldn't stop meowing at me when I was trying to make myself something to eat. Husband reminded me of some study that said cats make the same noise as newborns to make humans feed them, and assured me that I probably only cried because I'm so hormonally geared to be sensitive to crying now. I think it was nice of him to say, but probably I cried because I am just that crazy.

I'm beginning to get miserable enough physically and mentally that I get why women just want it over with at this point. I think I'd be fine going the two weeks to my due date, but after that ... I don't want to think about it.

Look at that baby closet! I'd say your ready... Just remember the first thing you need to do when you get to your hospital room is pee in the magic cup... pee = catheter... I LOVE CATHETERS!

Mavis, you are weird.
