T minus 18 or so hours

Yesterday, some of our very lovely friends came over to our house and weeded our horrifically overgrown flowerbed. Pictured is the "after" result. I cannot tell you how much more relaxed I feel now that I don't have to look at 24" grasses, thousands of dandelions, and about 90 ash trees. Thanks, kind friends!
Also, on Friday, our glider arrived. The rocker/recliner is now elsewhere in the house, and the glider is assembled and placed with an ottoman we already owned. It is incredibly comfortable, and since I personally was soothed by sitting in it, I have high hopes for its powers over cranky babies.

Here's the last belly shot you'll get of me pregnant, though I will probably take some of my post-baby belly in the name of intellectual honesty. I'm curious as to how the belly shrinks, and I expect the initial results will not be pretty. But post them I shall. By the way, this dress is one of the few things I bought instead of borrowed, and it has been amazing - a polyester Liz number from Tar.get. $26.99 or so. Great for work or social events. Today, I wore it to a mothers' day brunch at a local restaurant, then to Tar.get, which seemed to be a place that entire families were celebrating mothers' day. Hmm.

This little fellow has no idea how his life is about to change. Of course, neither do we. He'll be going on vacation tomorrow at the doggie day care place for a few days. Godspeed, little hound.

I am not sure what else to write at this point. A million things have gone through my head lately, but I have nothing intelligent to say about them. It is surreal to think that at this time tomorrow, we'll have seen our little boy (if all goes well, knock on wood, etc.). I'll post an update as soon as I can. Thanks for all of your support throughout this pregnancy, for commenting regularly, and for keeping up much better blogs than I ever could!

Kick ass! You're going to do great. I'll be thinking about you and Mr. Motel Manager tomorrow, and eagerly awaiting word of the little guy's arrival.
