Wednesday at home

MoBob has a schedule where he gets alternative Wednesdays off, and today I was working from home after my doctor's appointment this morning, so unusually we were both at our respective laptops at the dining room table. To my surprise we didn't quibble or get too distracted, and MB even fit in trips to the hardware store, the grocery store, and the library. I napped for a short while this afternoon. It was just heavenly.

Our trial membership with Amazon Prime ends this weekend and I don't plan on renewing though the two-day "free" shipping is nice. I'm still expecting a whole slew of packages. MB had asked his work colleagues to give practical gifts so now I finally have some items like a mini-medical kit with a thermometer, so those goodies are coming in as well. Yesterday morning we went to the local DMV to install the car seat - a lovely gentleman helped us out and wished us luck - and then in the evening MB assembled the matching stroller. Without one swear word! I'm so proud of him.

I asked for a second opinion from another OB in the same practice yesterday, and spoke to my own this morning, so it's totally cool now that we're going to wait til Bassou decides to arrive on his own. If this doesn't transpire til the 41st week then we will discuss induction again. But for the moment Bassou has a reprieve from his eventual expulsion from paradise.

I am so proud of BOTH of you!! Cheers! I truly hope the Bassou will appear without the induction; by choice, and I hear that's easier on you. Either way, it's going to be a joyful day when he does arrive! Congratulations!

Your timing on Amazon Prime is just right, because soon you'll have live theater to substitute for the cinema. A mini-medical kit will be of great use. Car seats, strollers, it's time to buckle up, because the fun ride is about to begin :).
