Once again, I'm on my couch with my swollen feet up. I don't really think it helps relieve the swelling, but it does put less pressure on the already swollen.
My due date is this Thursday. Hard to believe it's almost time. Any time now, I could be having this baby. I wonder how life with change with another child in this home.
If I did Daybook posts, I'd have fun with the "Outside my window..." prompt today. Dark clouds. Rain and wind. And my family out in it.
My husband, daughters, my brother, and my parents are off to visit a cemetery in the city where we have great-great-grand parents buried. Andrew plans to say some prayers at the graves and scatter some bay leaves from Holy Saturday. I've always wanted to see the site myself, but I've been up in the middle of the night with a sick two-year-old two nights in a row now, and I need some rest. I instructed my husband to take pictures. Although, with the aforementioned weather, I question whether they will even get out of the car.
The two-year-old insisted on going along with the outing despite being a bit feverish. My Dad convinced me that there really wasn't any reason to keep her home when she'll just be on a family outing and being held there instead of at home, so I let her go, happy to have some quiet time to myself here and not to have to deny her the car trip with Grandpa and Grandma. Why do kids get such a kick out of riding in other peoples' cars?
My coffee is lukewarm. A perpetual occurrence in my life. Brew. Sip. Interruption. Microwave. Sip. Forget to drink any more because microwaved doesn't really taste that good. Rediscover mug. Microwave. Sip. Blech. Microwaved coffee. Forget.... But having that mug sitting around unfinished brings me some kind of odd sense of comfort. Like I could sit down at any time, pull out something I wanted to read or work on and sip my coffee in peace. I think in the scenario, though, I expect it to taste hot and freshly brewed.
I don't really have anything profound to say in this post, so I think I'll stop here and work on some of the other posts that have been brewing (still thinking about that coffee, I think) in my mind for the last couple of days. Then I'll have to find something to make the crew for lunch when they return from their wet excursion. And finally, my sickie and I will take a nap. :)
