I haven't been posting.
I've been blank. I think it's been the heat and the anticipation of that huge event - THE HUGE EVENT - appearing on the horizon - ABIGAIL - with my eyes focused on Abigail's arrival my peripheral vision has been obstructed - not working. I can't see other stuff very well.
"Out of my way, out of my way, Abigail is coming soon!"
Our yard is a disaster. Weeds are full grown. As in flowering and reseeding. Stuff and traveling and unexpected, yet very welcome, rain has prevented our mowing and weed eating - which are the basics - and then taking care of beds - that's the big thing. We've done nothing in the yard for 3 weeks. Well, Charlie did a little in the front.
Abigail will be "induced" to arrive on Monday. Ann and Steve are to be in Labor and Delivery at 6:00 AM on Monday morning, June 27.
( I know that I'm supposed to say that Ann will be induced on Monday - which is correct - still - don't we think of the baby and its decision to leave that warm fluid safe world? I think we should say Ann will be induced - because I don't think Abigail would ever decide to leave where she is)
June has been HOT! Unseasonably Hot! Am I right? No easing into summer. I hear that July is supposed to be the June that we expected - or expect. July is supposed to be milder. That would be great.
There have been other things going on - but not suitable for blog posts -
Oh - and I did make a trip to McDonough, GA to stay with my little Ada and John - while Mom went to her 9:30 appointment in the big city of Atlanta - at Emory University Hospital -
As we wait for Abigail's arrival - I am reminded of our last vigil - waiting for John to come into the world - Babies are exciting and intense and they create an upheaval - and so they should.
(Kate will be home July 1. From China)
