40 weeks and 2 days. We’re now stuck in a holding pattern. I’m so ready to just get this part over with. My FIL is driving me nuts. He keeps telling us the baby is coming on Christmas. I soooooooo hope not. I really don’t want to be in the hospital for Christmas. I want to be back home with the baby by then.
I’m actually hoping for today. Not only is there a full moon tomorrow, which can do weird things, but there’s a full lunar eclipse visible from our home tonight. Maybe there will be some weird kinetic energy to get things moving…
This weekend was fairly busy. We had a tiler install a new floor in our downstairs bathroom on Thursday and Friday of last week (we’d removed the floor in ’06, but had never replaced it). When he removed the toilet and sink to do so, we realized that both needed to be replaced badly and that we were very lucky that they hadn’t sprung major leaks yet. So Saturday, my FIL came over to help John install a new vanity and toilet.
The new vanity makes our bathroom feel so much bigger. It’s a really small 3/4 bath and used to have a pedestal sink. Instead of replacing it with a new pedestal, we bought a vanity similar to this:
Although ours is a different color. It is nice and shallow and actually gives us some storage space, which we’ve never had in this bathroom before. I call it a win-win situation.
Our new toilet is a dual flush toilet. This is a pretty cool idea as it flushes at two different settings, using less water for #1 and more water for #2. It’s so quiet too. Hopefully I can get some pictures and post them soon.
Oh yeah, just an FYI, I’m sorry, but I chose to remove all comments on my last blog post. It’s one thing to comment on opinions, but it’s a completely different thing to attack someone’s religion. I didn’t ask to hear comments about Catholicism (either current or extraordinarily old scandals), so instead of trying to sort through for those that were actually about the post, I just deleted them all.
But, for those that care, here’s a link that kind of proves that I’m not going crazy: USA Today Article (I love how the priest compares using Jesus’s name in advertising to Voldemort’s name!)
