the britax car seat is finally in the car, albeit uninstalled. i called the police department to schedule an safety check, only to be played a message about 'budgetary constraints' and 'no longer offering this service.'
maybe it's the cold, but i'm tired and my brain is slowly curling up in a ball. i need to come up with a paper proposal by tomorrow, but of course i've procrastinated for the past month. there's still a bit of work left to be done for my adviser's book illustrations, yet all i want to do is nap and listen to music. i guess this is what happens when you're 38.5 weeks pregnant. i still need to go into the office next week--yesterday i felt great, today not so much. if it weren't so cold all the time, i would go to the library and try to get some work done. i'm feeling restless today, nervous and tired at the same time.
we now have a short list of about 5 names. i wasn't sharing any for the longest time, but now people are managing to coax names out of me. i had no idea settling on a name would be so difficult. it's almost as bad as finishing this chapter....
oh, and our birth plan consists of two things:
quiet environment (i.e. no chitchatting near me)
do not offer pain medication/interventions
we like to keep things simple.
