No new pics today – I mostly just take pictures of cats now anyways. Of course, you should thank me, since soon, this will all be pictures of Alvie. And cats, too, probably.

So – the days are all running together now. I am (mostly) done with work. I do need to log in today & do a few things, as well as put in my out of office message. But – not going into the office has really messed up my concept of the passage of time.

Ummm…so…Friday! Friday I went to acupuncture, then made my mom go have mediocre suburban Mexican food with me before hitting Target for a couple of last minute baby items (like toilet paper and swiffer dusters to dust the ceiling fan – totally baby related). Whilst at Target, I started having contractions. “Yay!” I thought. Immediately followed by “I think I should leave Target now and go home.”

I made my mom drive home, and spent the rest of the afternoon having contractions. It was very magical. Or something. I did call the architect and ask him to come home a bit early – just in case. And he did! He skipped work happy hour and the promise of fried cheese sticks to come home! I showered and put on my going to the hospital outfit, and then…they just fizzled out. I made the architect miss cheese sticks for nothing! I am a bad wife.

I was pretty exhausted Friday night, though, even for just 5 hours of false labor.

Saturday I did…nothing.  I rested. I hydrated. I crossed my fingers.

Sunday I had bursts of energy! I was putting away the flat ware from the dishwasher and realized that the drawer in which I store the flat ware was GROSS! So I (with the help of my mother) decided to clean it out. And then, I needed a new flatware tray, so we went to the dollar store. And then to the new nursery down the street (they had baby chickens! I didn’t get any) and then there was cleaning! And organizing! And more ceiling fan dusting (not by me, though – I am not allowed to climb on ladders).

Then, of course, I was wiped out.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading, and web surfing, and playing of Words With Friends.

And today – today is Alvie Bean Day. However, I do not think that Alvie is going to make an appearance today. He is just too cozy. Of course, there is now a FB movement to Free Alvie, and possibly a petition, and many people pleading my case (because Amy needs gin), so maybe he’ll listen.

I do, however, feel pretty confident that by the end of the week, I will have a new baby friend.

Happy week!

Darwin says you WILL have a good week...or else

    That was very generous of the architect to miss happy hour AND fried cheese sticks. I hope Alvie realizes just how much the architect wants him to arrive.

    You are so not a bad wife to ask him to come home early because you are having contractions! You know he wants to be there for you, and Alvie is totally half his, so probably he could miss happy hour! 🙂 Silly, silly, little momma! I’m pretty sure I picked April 3 for the arrival date, so I’m going for tomorrow! I actually figured Alvie would come on April Fools Day, mostly because that’s how you roll! Ok, now I’ve nearly written a blog post in your comments, so I wil stop. I’m just so excited for you!!! Don’t forget to tweet when you go to the hospital for reals–I have been checking Twitter several times an hour! 🙂
