Soon and Very Soon

Today I skipped my gym time in deference to other mothers who might not want to wipe their child's nose every 10 minutes, all day long.

Derek is a snot factory, but the good news is that his fever hasn't returned.

I spent the day doing laundry, washing sheets, making beds, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning toilets and sinks, and wiping my son's nose.
(He doesn't know how to blow. He sucks it in instead. No one ever said he was Harvard material.)

You may think I'm just incredibly domestic (unless you know me), but the truth is I was caught up in a strange form of nesting.
Just as many pregnant women clean everything in sight as their due date draws near, I was nesting for my "baby's" arrival as well.
Only it's my baby daddy.

Click on this link only if you drove around in high school singing the song. And even then, don't click on it.

So while I can't spell out for you exactly when Josh will be arriving, I can say that when I wake up tomorrow and get in the shower, I will be shaving my legs.

Enough said.

Oh and since I know that you've been wondering totally forgotten, I wanted to let you know that it is Day 12 of the 8-Minute Ab resolution. Haven't missed a day.
Also: No 6-pack on the horizon.
I'll keep you posted.

Good Night Moon.

Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo! Can't wait to read all about it, whenever it may be! :)
I have never heard that song. You weird-o.
I am doing my 8 min abs.
I am still flabby as can be.
Oh, I was going to do a post special for you tomorrow, but I am wondering if you will be even reading blogs tomorrow . . .

Grandma has ALWAYS said he is Harvard material. (as is his sister)

Yay! Get those legs shaved and don't forget the armpits too! I'm excited for you and can't wait to see some pictures!

I am glad that I am not the only one who is faithfully devoting 8 minutes every day -- with no results! I think perhaps once you end your "honeymoon" with Josh that you should get us all on a "DIET" to remove the 2 inch thick layer of blubber off of those abs! What do you think???

Our 2 year old can't figure out how to blow into a tissue yet either. I always tell him I'm going to wipe his nose and by the time I arrive with a tissue he's sucked it all back in. Gross!

Happy reunions :)
