I don't think anybody really needs a snow day in April.
I'm 37.5 weeks. I'm plateaued at comfortable in my uncomfortableness. But.
What would be ideal would be some grandparents next door to whom I could send two house-bound-crazed boys for an overnight so that I can pick up the freaking house.
The house is a mess - more than a mess - it's unclean to boot. Picking up needs to happen, cleaning really needs to happen. I'm getting stressed about bringing a baby home to the mess and dirt, stressed about how it's going to get clean in time for the coming house guests after the baby is born, and stressed about how oblivious Fritz seems to the mess/dirt.
A few weeks ago I had this idea that Trixie might make an early appearance. I'm feeling less that way now. My prediction is that she'll be born around the 25th of April, about 2 days ahead of schedule. I not-so-secretly believe I have control over the whole matter. If I aggressively attempted to clean house, she'd come earlier. If I sit here, with my feet up, and let the boys tear apart the basement (that's what we are doing right now), then Trixie will stay put a little longer.
What to do, what to do?
Other than the cleanliness of the house, there are some other things that I've wanted to see happen before Trixie's arrival:
The last three items on this list might all be crossed off by the 15th.
But the messy/dirty house? Probably not.
