Mea Culpa

Forgive me if I've been slow to respond to comments/emails or peer into the f-list, and please don't take it personally.  I'm not intentionally ignoring anyone.  Lately my head's been spinning because I suddenly realized just how much there is to get done before the baby's born -- both in preparation for her arrival and also all of the other random little tasks that will just be much easier to complete before she's here and sucking up all our time, energy, and sleep. :)  She isn't due till Feb. 22nd, but I'll admit there's some anxiety creeping in as I look at our gargantuan to-do list.  The weeks and months do seem to be whizzing by far too quickly.  Not to mention Thanksgiving's coming up, and we're having it at our place -- complete with at least 11 guests. 

Hell, I didn't even watch last week's Bones till last night, right before the current ep aired; that rarely happens. 

So I've been coming here to vomit bits of fic, picspams, or random questions and then run away again.  My brain is just flitting from one thing to another, never really settling in one place for very long.  Welcome to parenthood, I guess. *g*

Welcome to parenthood, I guess. *g*

You nailed it, hon! There's never going to be enough time... just do what you can and be happy!
*hugs*

Oh, and just so you know, we're happy with whatever you choose to vomit our way! *g*

Random crash: Hello you... ;)

Lately my head's been spinning because I suddenly realized just how much there is to get done before the baby's born -- both in preparation for her arrival and also all of the other random little tasks that will just be much easier to complete before she's here and sucking up all our time, energy, and sleep.

and yet at some point you WILL reach the point where there's no preparation needed to be done and you're just walking around waiting on your little girl. Trust me I've been there for the past week and 3 days (yeah not that i'm counting or anything ;))

Absolutely welcome to parenthood - I feel like this 100% of the time around here.. like I'm stealing time and never get to do anything properly!

You are totally correct that she will steal your time, energy and sleep.. in the best possible way of course, but nonetheless ;)

Don't worry, sweetie.. we appreciate any time you give us (and I am going to reply to the review you left me yesterday which has made me smile ever since later too *g*)

One baby step at a time, don't get overwhelmed. :o) Easier said than done, yes?

Even if she has to sleep in a drawer for the first few weeks, she'll be loved and adored and fed and cared for and that is worth so much more than having the perfect this or that, or this or that perfectly done.

And I'll read anything you put up here.

Be good to yourself.

No apology necessary, I'm sure there's a lot to do and you've got your priorities in order.

Also, I'd read any random 5 sentences from you over just about anything else any day (wow, lots of anys in a row there; sorry about that).

Basically, deep breaths, smile, and take care of yourself and her :)

You so should be taking advantage of this time to organize/put your RL in order! All bets are off with that when your little one gets here! No forgiveness necessary! Enjoy!

There isn't anything to forgive. :-)

Here's what's the key: How are YOU? How ya doin' and how ya feelin'?

[passes some herbal tea and ginger cookies.]

No problem, I've been incredibly busy lately and I understand the stress/pressure/busyness of the seemingly never-ending to-do list. Good luck with Thanksgiving prep! And really, we'll love to take whatever you want to post :)

Hope everything's going well! *hugs*
