It's one of those weeks for me. I'm trying to stay on top of things and I'm slowly watching the mountain grow taller and taller. I'm desperate to stay on top of that mountain. I have to stay on top of it! By tomorrow night, I will be over the mountain. What might that mountain be, you ask? My sister's baby shower.
Tomorrow at one'o'clock about fifty people will arrive at my house to celebrate my future nephew! Fifty people! FIFTY! To say that I am freaking out a little bit might be a slight understatement.
I've spent this week cleaning, cleaning, and then cleaning some more. It's slightly difficult since we have to live here too. We have to live in this house that I'm trying to keep clean. Which basically means that I've wasted a lot of time cleaning up the same messes over and over again.
Since I wasn't really home enough today to make a horrible mess, our house is relatively clean. I wasn't home because I was running around picking up things for the shower because tomorrow is the day. The day of my sister's shower. The same shower where fifty people will arrive at my house to celebrate that my sister is pregnant and my nephew will be here soon. Have I mentioned that I'm freaking out?
It's more than just that I'm going to have fifty people at my house tomorrow. This shower means that my nephew is actually very close to arriving. My little sister is going to have a baby! A real live baby. Outside her belly. One that cries and eats and needs to be taken care of. One that makes my little sister, MY LITTLE SISTER, a MOTHER! My little sister a mother. Plus I'm about to become an Aunt! I've never been an Aunt, only a Mommy. When little Mason arrives in December (I'm predicting January, just in case you were wondering!), we will have another memeber of the family! I'm excited! But I'm also freaking out a little bit.
While I spent all of today getting ready for this baby shower, I still have so much to do. There's some cleaning that still needs to be done. Particularly in the basement, where I don't expect anyone to go but like a boy scout I want to be prepared. Two bathrooms still require my attention. Our bedroom is a disaster. Food still needs to be prepared and made. Tomorrow at one'o'clock I will be ready. Tomorrow at one'o'clock my guests will arrive. Tomorrow at one'o'clock my sister will be that much closer to giving birth to my nephew, to becoming a mother herself. Tomorrow is a big day!
Tomorrow night, I will get some semblence of my life back. Meaning I will be back. Back to finish the story of the boat. Back to wow you with all of the things that Preston's been getting into. Back with pictures from my sister's baby shower. Back to let you know what being surrounded by pregnant women has been doing to me. Back!
