day 3

Sing to the tune of “The 12 Days of Christmas”

On the third day of being overdue I:

  • ran 4 miles
  • ate a giant cinnamon roll
  • took down the video monitor from Leo’s room so Dave can set it up in baby girl’s room.  I got the 3M stickies we used off the wall and doorframe by applying hot air from a hair dryer, then peeling it up.  They pulled off easily and didn’t take off any paint!  (I also used this method to take bumper stickers off our van when we bought it.)
  • took stuff to Goodwill
  • cleaned and reorganized the last two cupboards in the kitchen.  Good thing, too.  One of the cupboards was a rotating corner cupboard and 3 of the 4 screws fell out as I was unloading it.  The last screw was pretty loose, so it was only a matter of time before the whole shebang fell apart!
  • finished a book
  • moved a box of clothes from Leo’s closet down to the basement for storage

I also made pizza because at least if I’m not laboring I’m going to eat some delicious pizza.  I mixed some of our sauce with sundried tomato pesto and spread it over the crust, then added sauteed onion and orange peppers, diced tomatoes, and cheese.  It was so good!

Also, I’m up pretty much every night now for 2-3+ hours.  Insomnia is my faaaaavorite. I’ve tried laying in bed, reading, having a snack, etc. Nothing really works – I just have to wait it out.

I have a midwife appointment this morning so hopefully I’ll have made some progress!

  1. I had a dream last night that you were in labor and Dave was posting hour by hour updates on FB. Hopefully my dream is indicative that progress is near? 🙂 Hang in there!

  2. Remember when we used to write poems about work/people at work to the tune of Christmas carols?! I loved that game 🙂 Your pizza sounds delicious! So does that cinnamon roll Praying for you, friend – enjoy today!

  3. Ha ha, I was singing this post until I got to the third bullet.

    I have been wanting to bug you all week to ask how things are but have been trying not to, hoping you were with your new baby girl and family.

    Did you make it to 700? 😛
