I have no photos to accompany this post, although I've taken quite a few over the past couple of days. We're down to the final hours before our exams - M's is tomorrow, mine is Tuesday, so there is no free time anymore. I'm looking forward to getting back to 7 or 8 hours of sleep a night, and maybe even the occasional nap on the weekend - what a concept. But until then I'm at the dining room table with the laptop and a couple of notebooks and endless loose papers with red inked notes scrawled across them in front of me. The kiddo has scored a great pool date this afternoon, so the house is quiet, and there's good studying going on. (Which is why I'm limiting this post to five minutes.)
We're rolling into June tonight, and with that has come the early stages of change in me. This baby is moving closer into position, and things that came easily to me for awhile are not so easy anymore. We've noticed several physical changes in the last few days, and I can tell the end is near - still weeks away, we hope - but definitely on the horizon. I've got this one last busy week, and then it is time to relax, to get things done that I want to get done but don't have to get done, and prepare myself for what lies ahead. M and I have been spending a little time each night just getting ourselves ready and it's been the relaxing center of the very busy whirlwind that is our life around it. We're getting prepared and more than just a little excited.
Wish us luck this week, and in the next few weeks to come. But expect a little bit of the lazy days of summer to finally rub off on us and make us just that... a little lazy.
