Like a bee

In brief: 2012 is going to be busy, busy ... but in a good way (I hope).

O dear, 15 Jan already. Royally late for a Happy New Years post.
Still, I do wish you all a very happy 2012.

I'm now (... fetches calendar to look it up ...) 34 weeks PG. I'm
counting down the days till I can quit working, mostly because I have
so many other things going on.

People tell me I'm really showing now (and they're always surprised at
how soon the due date turns out to be). In other words, she's going to
be a small baby.

As far as I can tell, the baby is still lying in breech, which is fine
by me. Alive and well is what I care about. Right now that means
relief at feeling kicks ... in a few weeks it will probably mean I
regularly check she's still breathing.

We're still looking for a name. The baby stuff is still in storage,
but my mom volunteered to take care of it. The traditional birth
announcement cards haven't been prepared.

The thing is, we've bought a new house. We won't actually move there
any time soon, but it's already proving to be quite a project. The new
place needs some renovations, our current place needs to be prepared
for being put on the market ... and I reckon I will be out of it for a
good 6 weeks after delivery. Right now, it's a good distraction.

I can guarantee that I won't turn into a home remodeling blogger ...
blogging has already proved to be the first victim. I wanted to read
the crème de la crème list, but it isn't happening. Then I wanted to
read my feeds, but that isn't happening either. I'm feeling a bit
guilty about that.

So, busy, but a good kind of busy.
