Ah, best laid plans…Today was my husband’s day off and we had a laundry list of errands to run, it was to be one thing right after the other and we were bracing ourselves for a day of busy + mundane. That is not how the universe saw fit for us, nope. On this very fair (and rare) date–11.12.13 the stars aligned and conspired to throw us a surprise–a birthday no less. I had wanted this date as a potential birthday, but it was too soon, it was a passing thought in, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be so cool if she was born 11.12.13?’ The next time this date will come around is 100 years from now, a sort of Halley’s comet of birthday’s.
Early morning plans changed radically, instead of heading off to the market and planning dinner I was whisked away to the hospital and told that today is the day. So, I guess I did work up until delivery, albeit I thought delivery would be in three weeks from now, which seemed so soon and now look at me? In an hour I will be going in to have her and yes, I am acutely aware at this most private and special of times, I am on the internet blogging, so 21st century of moi and possibly gauche, but I am not in my right mind and it seems like a perfectly normal thing to do at this moment. We still don’t have a name, today we were planning to nail that down, but as you can see nothing went quite as planned. Since I have never done anything remotely close to this before, I don’t know how long I shall be away from my little hub on the web but I will be thinking of my ‘home away from home’ and can’t wait to share her name and stats with you. We are about to embark on quite the adventure, indeed….
