So my friend Molly totally bailed me out by agreeing to teach my Joy School lesson today. I called her last night and asked her last minute since the appointment I could get to see the dr. is this morning. Molly offered to watch Bella for as long as I needed today, depending on what happened.
I sheepishly called Linda to see if she would go with me to the ghetto office and be my advocate, and she kindly agreed.
This morning Timm's car wouldn't work. The clutch. So he had to take mine, since it was 5:45 am and he works over half an hour away. He took the car seat out and I am going to ask my friend and neighbor Karilee to take Bella to school this morning. I am going to call Linda and see if she also wouldn't mind giving me a ride downtown to the office. We were going to drive separately in case I had to wait a long time (a common occurrence) or if they sent me over to the hospital. Hmm.
We haven't had milk in a few days and I was going to get some this morning since Bella keeps asking for some.
I am supposed to pick up our food order tomorrow morning.
We only have one working vehicle, which is practically an impossibility due to how far Timm's commute is, the time of day he generally leaves, and the amount of places and jobs he has to get to in a given week. And it appears to be a clutch problem. Clutch = lots of $.
Timm's solution was to demand that I have a C-Section tomorrow morning and he would take the day off of work. Uh huh.
(Throwing up my arms) When it rains, it pours.
We'll see.
f.y.i. If I am as far along as the ultrasound would indicate (and I am-) I could go into labor anytime as well. Another few days and I'd be 38 weeks, when I went into labor with Lola. I don't want to go into labor and then have a C-section again. (Been there, done that.) Not fun.
But when I consider the possibility that I could be having a baby any day, my main concern is the state of my house. I'm worried about my floors that need scrubbing, my bathrooms that need scrubbing. I can' t help but think, "I can't have a baby yet! I haven't cleaned the house!". That, and "But I haven't picked up any new books from the library! I can't be stuck reading 'Feeling Good' about cognitive therapy! I need something good to read!"
Help! I need a clean house and a good book before I can have this baby- Priorities!!

Oh my goodness, this is a crazy turn of events for sure. It's comforting that you have people you can call for help. It will all work out for the best, and the floors won't matter when that baby comes.

so sorry. Wish I was there to help.

Oh my gosh, I just read your last two posts and I gasped out loud through both of them! I am so glad that you have Molly and Linda there. I'll pray for you. Have Timmy give you a priesthood blessing!!!

I am so grateful for Molly! She is doing exactly what I wish I could. I am glad things went okay today and that on Friday you will hopefully have some answers! Jill is so right- the floors won't matter. You will be so into Fiona that you won't even think about them if they aren't perfect :)

I'm glad you have people there to advocate for you--car troubles and an imminent-sooner-than-you-thought baby is not a good combo.

ohhh Jessie focus on baby fiona now...the floors will be there when all is said and done! I am praying for you that all goes well.

I can help with the good book...a good book for you, or for baby Fiona? Seriously, send me a request, (that I have in my library) and I'll send you a copy :)
