Here is a fun game for all the people who read my blog. I want your suggestions on how to pass the time between now and the day we get ‘the call’. Tiger fights?
I also want your advice on how to not completely forget that I’m waiting for “the call”. I’m sincerely worried that I will receive the call in the middle of a crazy work day, months from now and become completely perplexed by what the person on the other end of “the call” is telling me. How am I supposed to stay “in the zone” of pending parenthood when I have no idea when the PENDING WILL END?! I don’t pretend to know what pregnancy is like but I’m pretty sure it’s hard to lose sight of pending parenthood when you are carrying a large front load and waddle like it’s the cool thing to do.
Even before we were licensed I would casually forget about my parenthood plans and suddenly be reminded by something and/or someone and have that moment of *SHRIEK* “I forgot about that…*GASP* *CRAP* *AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH* (Yes. that IS the best way I can put that feeling into words.)
Jason also pointed out that from now on we have to keep the house within a decent range of cleanliness. PUKE. Sometimes it’s nice to have a sticky floor; keeps you from slipping. And I don’t know about how your house is organized but piles are my life. How would I EVER find my pants in a drawer? Impossible to say the least. But you put those pants in a pile and I’m sure to find them. I may not fit in them but I can find them and that’s 50% of putting your pants on.
So lay it on my blog friends. Suggestions?
