I have less than a week and a half left at work and I am so happy to say that. And yet, because of last week, I have a lot to do before I leave. I will do my best to get it done, but one can only do so much.
And yet, I feel like I really needed that time off. (But I certainly don’t enjoy why I had it off – I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.) I feel more prepared to handle these last days. I didn’t get a lot done last week, and I was feeling a bit guilty about that. (I’m not sure if that’s my normal guilt about not being busy all the time or if it’s the beginning of mom-guilt.) I should have been cleaning the house, catching up on my writing, and looking for more writing work. Instead, I read and did a lot of napping.
But I feel so much better this week that I have to admit it’s probably what I really needed. And I proved that yesterday by totally rearranging our bedroom and setting up the crib (with J’s help, of course – he did all of the heavy lifting and then some). We got a lot done and I am pretty satisfied with what we accomplished. At least we’re pretty much ready if the Wee One decides to make an early appearance. So, that nesting thing? I think I found it. I’m happy with it, but I’m not sure hubby’s enjoying it.
