Icing on the Cake

This has been quite a week. After the ear infection fiasco, I was feeling like I might be getting better, but yesterday fate played the cruelest joke of all on me. I came down with pink eye. That's right. Apparently, I am revisiting all common childhood ailments. The doctor also gave me a different antibiotic for the ear infection, as she didn't feel the first was doing its job.

I am taking all of this as a sign that I need to begin my maternity leave on Monday. Tomorrow I am going into my classroom, cleaning my desk, and leaving my sub plans behind. I think getting slammed with not one but two infections in a week means that it's time.

On the baby arrival front, I can now say that we are as ready as we are ever going to be. Everything has been purchased, sterilized, washed, what have you, and we are now just waiting. At my last OB appointment, she didn't see any further progress, but considering that I have been sick, the doctor seemed to think this was a good thing. I have had some cramping, contraction-like feelings, but nothing significant so far. Now we are just playing the waiting game! My parents will be arriving tonight, so they will join us to play along.

  1. I gave it some thought over the weekend, and I'm placing my bets on Tuesday. Best of luck--we're thinking of you!
