So, today Pam returns home, which in itself is neither here nor there for all of you but it is fairly significant in these parts. First, the child and I miss her when she gone. Second, we tend to eat healthier when she is here (though I have done MUCH better this time out). Really though, today, it is the third reason that matters most. With her return, it means that we can get the blood test done tomorrow to confirm what will probably the fastest pee this side of the Eskimos (sorry, Inuit is it now?). My wife has been very good at respecting my wishes to not POAS until she returns home so as to not rob me of the suspense and anticipation with her. I suspect we will be doing this as soon as she can get upstairs so dinner will have to wait.
I have pretty much just dropped the thought of today deep into the subconscious but now that the day is here, I have to admit to some anticipation and angst as I not only want to know, I only want one possible answer and cannot believe it to be anything but that one answer. This definitely strays from my usual frustratingly and annoyingly realistic outlook. Sue me! I saw my great niece last night (my nephew and his girlfriend gave birth to a six pound seven ounce little joy named Maya yesterday) and was unable to hold her due to a bad cold. I remember what it was like when I was in that position and I do long for that feeling again.
Good thoughts everyone. :)
