Well this month has been a lot of waiting for baby and wrapping things up at work so I can feel OK about leaving. My maternity leave has begun. I have had contractions this week off and on. Thurs. contractions were especially bad and I thought it was it, but they stopped by late that evening. So I am in sit and wait mode waiting on baby. I have given up on all my theories about when the baby will come. I really thought the theory I had of having the baby around the full moon on the 20th was a good one. I had a different theory for every day last week including our baby wanted to be born on an election day to the same date as my birth date. All failed. I guess we have an independent kid. I have started talking to the baby trying to convince him it is better on the outside. To pass the time I have started watching the Tudors Showtime series yesterday and am almost all the way through it. Boy am I bored and need to come up with more interesting ways to entertain myself.
My friend Michele just got back from Paris today as her 40th birthday trip. I made here the following gift. I hope it got there today so it is there when she got home. This is the first thing I have knitted for her as she is a fellow knitter. I don’t think this is something she would make for herself though and would like a lot.
Happy Birthday Michele!
