Well we tried our best this weekend. We mopped and vaccumed. We took long walks around the mall. We drove over lots of speed bumps in the parking lot. I took warm soothing baths to relax. And even got to enjoy a really nice date night with hubby (*wink *wink)! But still no baby. That means we only have one more week to try to get things going on our own before our doctor takes over and induces labour...
So my strategy for the week is distraction! Since everything is ready: socks are knit, bags are packed, car seat installed, nursery organised, house sparkling, contingency plans for getting to the hospital and arrangements for Julian during our stay there done...well, there really isn't any reason for me to dwell on any of this this week now is there?
So I'm going to will myself to think about other things, starting with the knitting! See that picture up there? It's not a baby knit. No Sir-ee, Bob! That there is a really, really old project and long overdue present for dada. Anyone recognise it? It's Knitty's anniversary sweater that I started working on almost a year ago.
It was intended as a present for my honey on the occasion of our second (aka cotton) anniversary which we celebrated on April 17th of last year. Needless to say it's been slow going. I have the back done and just cast on for the front. I figure as long as I give it to him before April 17th of this year, it'll still count as a cotton anniversary gift ;0)
(See how I didn't think about it for a whole paragraph there? I can totally do this ;0)
