Congrats on making 41 weeks! Obviously I'm still here. Yesterday was the "due date" and if I got 1 call, I got a dozen asking if the baby was here. I had told dh not to tell people the date, but obviously he didn't listen. Then I had told him I didn't feel like talking to anyone, and yet again - didn't listen. Finally I started telling people that yep, the baby came last Thursday, but we obviously didn't think highly enough of them to let them know that. There would be stunned silence on the phone and I'd go on, "Do you really think that calling and asking if the baby is here yet is cute? Funny? Productive in any way, shape or form? Trust me, when the baby comes, we'll let you know and if you want to "check up on me" from now until mid-September, here's dh's cell phone number. And actually, that's a better way to reach us anyway as you know how crazy it gets once the baby comes." HAH! So now dh can answer all those stupid phone calls. I know I sound like a real bitch, but honestly, does my Mom or Mil think that we wouldn't call them? (Especially since mil is our ds's caretaker backup) Dh's sister thought that maybe our phone was out, that's why we hadn't called - so you call the phone that you think is out to see if it's out? Dh's grandma asked the waitress at the local resturant if she'd heard anything so when we went out to breakfast yesterday morning we got to be grilled by our waitress, 2 other waitresses and the owner! And we don't even go to this place very often so it's not like we really know these people!
I'm thinking of changing the answering maching message to "A watched pot never boils - if you are calling about something other than the impending birth of our 2nd child, please leave a message and we'll get back to you."
Other than crabby, I'm feeling stressed. Dh found out that after September, he's out of a job. Perfect timing. Turns out our front stoop is sinking because there's a HUGE crack in the foundation. And to fix it we'll have to tear out the finished wall in the basement. Did I mention that all of our crap is in the basement? And stands to rot/get moldy etc. from all the moisture? And we got a letter from the village that we have to cut our lawn w/in the next 3 days or we'll be fined $100 - and the lawn is long, but apparently anything over 6 inches is "too long." And the lawn mower is broken. And I can't find the number for the local kids who cut grass...and...and...and. Luckily, we're scheduled for refinancing later this week so that'll help (and thankfully they've already verified employment and all that jazz, so the job thing isn't an issue. I've told Wee Bitty that anytime after we sign the paperwork, she/he can come.
Ugh. Man - it seems like all my posts lately have been real downers, sorry ladies.
Mtsunshinemama, I looked at your belly photos - they're beautiful. I saw JamieP's as well and I'm currently trying to get mine off the camera and up somewhere so you can view them...I had no idea my belly was that big! I mean, yah, I only fit into 1 skirt and 2 shorts and it's getting harder and harder to find a shirt that will cover my belly, but it still didn't seem THAT big! Ahhh, the power of self denial!
