The Final Two Week Wait

So, I just realized today that we are in our FINAL two week wait!

Two weeks from today, I will have an empty belly and an overflowing heart!

Holy Shit. I'm going to be in the hospital for the first time ever. I'm going to have my first major surgery. I'm gonna be a mom. To not one, but two babies. Seriously, that is insane!

A blizzard of sleet did arrive here in Kansas today with at least a foot of snow expected before it stops late tomorrow. And it sucks.

I was all but escorted out of the building by my boss and various colleagues. About 11am they kind of filed in one after another with such friendly thoughts as Why are you still here? Will you please go home? and You'd better not be here when I get back from lunch. One VP even called me about 30 minutes after I left to verify that I had made it home and offered to run any errands I had or come by the house if I needed anything. I do not deserve their kindness!

Thankfully, my husband is not working tomorrow. So, at least I can be stuck at home with him.

He is working on Sunday, but that's a shorter day, plus its supposed to be above freezing by then so maybe I can get out of the house.

I'm itching to make some fleece blankets for some relatives who are expecting babies, which will require getting to the fabric store to pick up some fleece.

Ok, I have heartburn and the Tums are apparently by my other bed - the couch - so I must go get some.

I am so excited to be able to be a part of this experience with you. I hope you are all safe and warm during your storm.

This must be the best two week wait ever! :-)

Sounds like you have some really wonderful coworkers. What a precious time it is right now. I hope you're enjoying it. And resting!

Wow - I never thought of it that way! The final 2WW. Awesome.

Every time I see a new post from you, I think I'm going to open it and see two precious boys smiling at me. Or probably sleeping at me.

I hope you enjoyed your snow day at home with Hubby!
