Just Hanging Out Waiting

I didn't go to work today. I woke up feeling kind of crampy and off. I thought I'd feel better once I showered and ate breakfast, but I didn't. Since my office is an hour from my house (and my hospital), I thought I'd better stick around here. But, there's nothing going on with this baby, other than the fact that she's still fairly quiet. I know she'll be here soon, but I guess today is not the day.

Since the painter was here finishing the nursery (which now looks fabulous, and may actually be finished!), I went shopping and walked around a ton, hoping that might get things going. I ended up with sporadic lower abdominal contractions, but nothing regular or "real."

I also ended up with:

New comfy socks. . .$5
New comfy pajamas. . .$9
New comfy sweater. . .$12 (just LOVE the after-Christmas sales!)
New laundry detergent. . .$12 (why the hell is Dreft so expensive???)

A day to myself, doing whatever I wanted, sans input from irritating people: Priceless.

Sounds like a great day. Glad you were able to take it!

You were deserving of such a day. I bet a huge weight is lifting knowing the nursery is finished!

I was also shocked and horrified at the price of Dreft. Our pediatrician gave us a sheet on products for baby's sensitive skin and he said to forget Dreft. Tide Free, Cheer Free and All Free-and-Clear are just as good and half the price. I do love the way Dreft smells, though.
