The laundry is done, as are the dishes. The counters are cleaned, the trash is out, the odds and ends are picked up. Molasses-spice cookies have been made, making the house smell nice (and making it a little warmer). The bed is made with fresh flannel sheets. Everything has been taken care of and it’s a dreary night outside, making us in no hurry to go anywhere. It’s a perfect night to stay in and meet someone new and special. We’re ready, little baby. Where are you?

Uncomfortable contractions through parts of last night- strong enough to wake me up.

Going into active labor today? Not friggin’ likely.
