Cleaned today and took down the Christmas decorations. Tried not to be super irriated with DH who had all these plans about helping me with the tree, cleaning out the birth pool, deep cleaning, etc...then took a three hour nap.
We just put our Christmas tree up on Xmas Eve because my sister was visiting and wanted to be a part of it. Christmas didn't feel like Christmas at ALL, New Years was a total non-event, and I still feel like I'm waiting for it to happen. So we'll leave the tree up, despite the fact that DD is slowly pulling apart every ornament within reach (aren't many now!) and I'm too tired to care. I wanted some new ones anyway!
But DH had 2 weeks off just before Christmas. He was going to be sooo helpful . Instead my house got messier, I got less done then I would have if he was at work, and now I'm just mad at him for being a schmuck. It's a good thing he did everything yesterday or I would be VERY mad at him right now!
MIL's sister is likely not going to live through the night She's in the hospital (far away, unfortunately) with very end-stage cancer. I want to do something for MIL- she doesn't like cards, she's allergic to flowers and lotions and most foods so I have NO clue how to help her out or show her that I'm thinking about her.
Remijo- I'm sorry things are so tough right now... Yikes, 10 months away from DH, a newborn, and school. Wow! Lots to process!
Amy - I don't know what to say, but I'm so glad you have Edelweiss to snuggle right now
Oceanone- eww, being sick is lousy! I'm glad you've got a good support team around to help out. And nesting... eh, never happened with my first. I'm just glad my homebirth was at my MIL's house so no one had to see my house (except my mom and sister, who did a crazy clean up before I came home!) This one I've had low-level nesting since the beginning. Waiting for it to kick into high gear, but no signs of that so far (I still CANNOT get my head around the fact that I'm due in less than 4 weeks.)
