Well, no outside baby yet, but I’m feeling a little better than I was during the first half of the week. And being slightly less nauseated definitely helps take the edge off any impatience I’m feeling. It’s not as though I really expected Baby M to arrive on her due date, but I think being unable to go about my daily routine (due to queasiness) made life a little more stressful. It seemed like something should be happening, since I felt so crummy, yet nothing was (well, nothing immediate, anyway). Feeling a little better this afternoon has given me more perspective, and continuing to wait doesn’t seem so bad anymore.
Rob made me a nice cup of coffee this afternoon, and even Beany wanted to try it. He drinks lattes, but I prefer Americanos with some milk, and I think he did a good job getting the ratio of espresso to water to milk right. And I like these Bodum mugs he got. I thought they seemed too big, but they work well for keeping the coffee hot and your hands cool.
I really like my ‘new’ bathroom. I wish it had a window, of course, but when I take baths, I turn on the light in the closet and open its door halfway. And sometimes I light some candles. I suppose every day that the baby doesn’t arrive is one more chance for a leisurely bath!
I said to Rob today that, in terms of recent home improvements, my favorite thing is my bathroom, and his is his skyroom. The second best thing is our new satellite service. We had satellite TV before, but now we also have internet through the same company — AND we just upgraded to the ‘Hopper’ box instead of a regular DVR. It records ALL the network primetime shows at once and magically hops over the commercials if you watch recordings the next day. Such a silly, shallow thing to be excited about, but it’s been the source of much joy for us both.
