The Calm Before The Storm

I don't know if this happens to you guys as well - but, whenever I'm close to a deadline, instead of panicking, a strange calm overtakes me.   My mind gets split in two.  There will be one half urging me to get to work on whatever it is, screaming and running about, throwing a scene.  The other half will opt for a laid back attitude where procrastination is dominant.

At the moment,I've got a list of things that need to be done before the end of next week [for obvious reasons], however the only thing I feel like doing is sleep.  Knowing that this will be the last few moments of complete silence I will be getting for a while makes me appreciate it more and wanting to savour it.

Tomorrow I've got another prenatal class.  I must remember to let the midwife know that this may very well be my last one so that if there is any important info she needs to dish out, I'll be sure to obtain it.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering what the doll I was making is, here's the finished result:

Yep. It is a bunny rabbit.

 As silly as it may sound,  the idea that Creature will be popping out soon is strange. People around me, as well as myself, got used to the pregnancy. To think that there will be another major change happening puts you back to square one where you have to learn how to deal with it all. 

I'm quite looking forward to finding out whether Creature is a boy or a girl. It will be odd not calling him/her Creature after having used that nickname for so long!

  1. for the entire pregnancy we called my little sister Fudge. but when she was born there was this automatic shift from calling her Fudge to Isabel. I'm sure you are going to make the best Mom for creature!
