Just Like the Birds, Baby
That last joke, is really more true than funny.
I was starting to think Liam had kicked my OMG-WTF button so hard, that my Holy-Crap-I-need-to-get-the-house-ready-for-a-baby button might never be pushed. Today, I think he hit the nesting button. Finally!
I did laundry, cleaned the bathroom, helped my husband hang a new shelf/towel-rack-thingie in the bathroom, bought a push lawnmower, mowed some of the lawn, put up new clothesline, and so on.
I'm hoping that at soon I'll start feeling ready to get out baby stuff. I realized I haven't bought Liam one single thing and I think it's that I'm still afraid that if I do, I'll jinx it, and he'll never come home. I need to get over that. Soon. Besides, I know that the truth is that no one can protect themselves from hurting when their kids are at risk in any way. Even under the best case scenario, it's going to be hard just watching him go through surgery.
But at least for now, a lot is getting done. And I think it's made me tired enough that I'll actually sleep well tonight.
