Smack of Reality!

This is a photo of the bulletin board hanging next to my desk at work. (Do you think I have enough kid pictures on it! How will I have room for my own kid! ha!) I always have a 4 month outlook posted on it for various reasons but also maybe to subconsciously make me panic about upcoming events.

So as you can see from my self added arrows, the 4 month outlook now shows today, as well as the baby's due date. I cannot believe I am looking at today and the baby's due date on the same wall! For each of the next few months that pass, when I take down the past month and bump each of those others up a notch, that means another month closer to the baby being here! WHOA - can we put the brakes on this? Or wait, maybe can we get this rolling? I'd love to feel myself again ;) Heartburn after every meal is really becoming a drag; especially when the it doesn't matter what the meal is. It could be PAPER and I'd have heartburn. Bahhhhhh

P.S. The Life on a Southern Farm blog has a giveaway going on today through Dec. 9 for one of their awesome 3 Hole Chicken Nesting Boxes. If you have or are planning to get some egg layers, these would be awesome! I know hubby would be shocked and in awe if I have this under the Xmas tree for him this year!

Yep, the due date has a way of sneaking up on you. Get everything done now and sleep while you can!!!
Now I'm going to go look at those chicken nesting boxes. That's what I need, more things that depend on me!!!!!!
