The Mayberry Home Journal: DIY+Pregnant Brain
Without getting into too many details-the baby is going to be a little longer than we thought. We were afraid that she was going to be early, and now that she isn't, I sort of feel like I'm living life in limbo.I don't know if it's just me, or women in general, who find the strangest tasks to pass time until a baby arrives. Suddenly, the weirdest things pop on to our 'to do' lists, and become oddly important. And the tasks seem to grow weirder and weirder with each baby. Right before I had Reuben, for some reason, I decided that my living room futon needed a new cover. Not great timing, but not so strange. Before I had Zeke, I needed to get all my Christmas cards done early-not just written, that wasn't good enough. My mom also contributes to this fun little routine-I think that she nests right along with us. That, and that's what her Mom always did to "help". Well, maybe not stranger than the salad dressing. Mom had suddenly decided that it was time to pair my family's odd socks.
