Thus far, that is all I can say about the labor progressions. I have the occasional painful contraction, but nothing regular.
I feel like in the last week or so, my body is very, very worn out. I get tired doing very simple tasks. Today was my most productive day in a long time- I did a load of laundry, re-hung a strand of Christmas lights in the living room (the other ones conveniently had blown out after they had been hung), and hung a set of curtains in the dining room.
Oh, and I bathed. That's always a bonus.
I feel like a turtle, in so many ways: slow, can't roll over if I get set on my back, sometimes look a bit green...
In other news, for too long a time to even write down, we have not had a light in our dining room. It's one of the joys of owning an older home... weird wiring and all that. So for this period of a *long time*, we've been using a floor lamp in there as lighting.
However, due to the ever extraordinary super-powers of Miscellaneous Man (who is secretly my friend Jeremy) and the logical skills of my own personal super hero (my husband), we now have a working light fixture in our dining room.
Just in time for our first Christmas dinner at home.
I am SO excited.
(Em is thrilled too- she said this morning, "Daddy Jeremy niiiice turn on light!" hehe)
Speaking of Miscellaneous Man, he also came over the last two days and helped me (read here as "did all the work") clean the house. Now my floors that have not been mopped in several months are all sparkly, the dust bunnies have been shooed away, and my whole house smells nice and clean.
Friends. They're a good thing.
Gotta go get the munchkins in pjs and settle down for a nice winter's nap.
