Here I was trying to hurry and get the apartment clean and get things done before the baby came and now I'm sitting around with nothing to do but wonder why my body doesn't want to go into labor... and thinking about eating Oreos with chunky peanut butter. Mmmm. Here's a bit of what I have done the last little bit:
-copy and pasted a ton of craft ideas and recipes from blogs
-finished reading the entire Little House series
-read the first two books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series (so funny, by the way. I recommend them for a fun afternoon read if you're looking for a laugh.)
-listening to Pandora a lot
-playing a lot of computer solitaire and text twist
-go on walks with my sister and our friends here in the quad
-go on college campus visits with my sister-in-law Alison (Hooray for the BYU golf carts and the free ice cream at UVU!)
-went to the canyon for a fun picnic with some extended family last night
-went to a family reunion last week
-celebrated my sister-in-law Lisa's birthday- woo woo!
-sewed a birthday present for my niece who turns three soon
-made soap for a family night activity on Monday
I've been trying my best to keep busy so I don't go crazy, but it's getting hard to think of things to do. For better or worse, I'm not super interested in starting projects that I can't finish in a day. I have this phobia of starting a huge project and being in the middle of it when I finally do go into labor and then coming home with a new baby to the apartment being a huge mess, not to mention an unfinished project. Although I have considered doing this just to test the power of irony, hopefully getting labor going. Meh. Anyway, today is definitely a solitaire and Pandora kind of day since I have NOTHING planned until Enrichment tonight. Thank goodness for that. And for Oreos. Speaking of which, I've got to go. Think happy going-into-labor-right-this-moment thoughts for me!
