I am such a forward thinking person in terms of time and planning. I am always thinking about what next big thing is coming up. After I got engaged I focused on the wedding, after the wedding I focused on buying the house, after the house I focused on (and then obsessed) about getting pregnant.
Now that I am pregnant, I just can't wait to have the baby. But I realized something this morning, I just need to sit back and enjoy things the way they are for the moment.
I need to not look at this like 10 or so weeks before I meet my little girl, I need to look at it as 10 or so weeks to truly enjoy my life the way it is now. Specifically enjoy spending time with my husband.
So I have decided I am going to make a list of things that will be difficult or that will happen less often once Avery is here and make sure we do those things more in the next few weeks!!!
Here is what I have so far
-go to the movies
-go to friends' houses (I don't think "going out" to bars and such is really appropriate at this point)
-do things right after work
Again, I know a baby won't stop these things entirely (well maybe except for the sleeping in), but they will just involve more planning or not be as frequent as they are now!
What are some things you would add to this list?
I am going to try to enjoy my next ten weeks rather than wish them away, but I still can't wait to meet my baby!
