Concentrating on Spring Cheer
...instead of the snow storm outside.
We had a great time at the wedding of two incredible friends this weekend in Charlottesville. We also LOVED seeing our North Carolina family Wednesday and Thursday.
My mode of existence has now been reduced to Jabba the Hut. Not only am I 30+ weeks pregnant, but I'm apparently wildly anemic. When I mentioned my hematocrit levels in front of my veterinarian friends, they said: You're like an old cat.
And you may be wondering, after looking at the picture above (super plum!), how I manage to stay upright. I'm not really sure. I almost didn't while getting my cardio-vacuum on this morning.
So - after a weekend of travel and minor pregnant dancing, I'm jumping on the enormous pile of work and new baby preparation in front of me. And yes, we're still renovating/redecorating our house. And yes, this is all going to happen before the new baby arrives.
And no - do not say this to me: Are you having twins?
Or: There's an excellent neo-natal unit in Charlottesville.
Or: You must be about to give birth any day now!
Because I'm not. I have WEEKS of this left. Weeks. weeks. weeks.
Thank you for doing your part to preserve my self-esteem,
