Today is Saturday, which means I have only 6 MORE DAYS until our baby boys arrive!

DH and I are SO excited, and impatient for their arrival. It seems like there is nothing else we can talk about.

Today, I made my *final* weekly grocery trip. I stocked up on food for this week, plus plenty of easy stuff for next week - DH requested frozen pizzas, I chose meat, cheese and crackers. And for some reason, I'm obsessed with toilet paper. We must have 60 extra rolls in the linen closet! I guess I'm just anticipating a lot of house guests in the next few weeks.
After that excursion, I worked on some more thank you cards for gifts we received this week, plus some extra baby cards for some gifts I plan to mail on Monday.
And then I took a 3-hour nap.
I normally don't allow myself to nap during the day, because I worry I will be up all night. But I simply...could....not...go...on. And now I'm still feeling rather exhausted. Even two tall glasses of Coke have not sped things up.
I guess we all knew this time would come.
I have a mere four days left in the office - two at my desk, and two in meetings - before my leave. I worked steadily on Friday making final preparations, and will meet with my boss on Monday to review where I've left everything. If I can get everything on my list done by the end of the day on Tuesday, they shouldn't hardly know I'm gone!
My company does not offer paid maternity leave, but I have saved up 29 days of vacation and/or sick leave. Which is about 6 weeks, but then I will have NOTHING until my leave renews at the end of September. So, I'm considering taking one day unpaid each week to save myself some extra time with the boys, for later, when I'll need the pay because we are paying daycare.

I have been reading your blog for a while now, and can't wait to hear happy news of you new arrivals.

Best of luck with everything for this week...

I had a dream about you last night and I woke up this morning trying to calculate in my head what day the boys would arrive on. Funny how your sub-conscious works!

So, thanks for the update! Four more days!
