5 weeks and counting....

I have so been slacking on blogging. And this particular blog post has been in the works for about a month. I blame it on pregnancy brain. I guess the blog is just lucky it didn't get a blank post because there have been days that, well, that's how my mind has been working at times... ha ha ha ha.

We have 5 weeks to go (as of tomorrow it will only be 4). I'm nervous, anxious, excited, and thrilled. J and I will be holding our little "Nugget" in as few as 5 weeks. I feel like time is just speeding up and speeding by. I'm hoping that everything will be ready in time.

The crib is finally made - now we just have to finish sterilizing and putting everything away...I think that's the hardest part right now because there are days that I have tons of energy and then there are days like to day where I have absolutely zilch.

Christmas is going to be here before we know it. I just want to make it through Christmas and then Nugget can make his or her appearance anytime. Just get me to the 28th --- I'll even back it down a couple of days from my original request date of the 31st.

And speaking of Christmas, I am excited as I usually am because I love Christmas. I love all the lights and decorations and for the most part, I love how people seem to be genuinely nice and kind to each other. I would however make 1 tiny little adjustment this year.

I want some (not a blizzard, not 16 inches in an hour, not a storm) snow. Just enough to make everything look crisp and fresh and well, for lack of a better word, Christmas-y. Here is it, Dec 19, and we've had bupcus for snow. Maybe a dusting that lasted 2 hours. Hell, the ski resorts are struggling to make snow. Most of November had temps in the 40-50's if not the low 60s. It's not that I'm complaining but still - it's December...I'd like a white Christmas...And for Nugget to show up after Christmas...just saying...
