Can't.. breathe..

The stress of how much I need to do before Zoe has hit me like a ton of bricks today.  As well as the third term exhaustion- thanks to lack of sleep because I'm no longer comfortable and I have to get up to use the bathroom at least twice a night!

I talked to the childcare provider about when orientation was.  Come to find out it was at 9:00 this morning.  When my husband found out I missed it and that the next one isn't until sometime in August.. he wasn't too thrilled.  He knows that everything will work out, it's just frustrating knowing it was today and because I kept putting off calling to find out when it is I missed it.


This totally has me stressed out, but I'm hoping I will use this as a positive turn around and get my back end into high gear and get this started so I can "open the business" after Zoe is born and all family returns home.

Needless to say I allowed my pregnancy hormones to take over and I blindly drove home since I couldn't see anything through the flooding of my tears.  After sitting for a little while, chewing on some ice, I am ready to go to Walmart, buy a planner, make some phone calls, and start writing things down and being more organized.

I have 41 days, if that, to get my house and the daycare stuff completed to my liking.  This means pushing my exhaustion and/or laziness to the side and GO!

Without going into labor before my mom gets here.


  1. oooo.. that's such a bummer that it was TODAY of all days. been there, done that.. still feel bad about it.

    take it easy, gracie. you still have time. the orientation isn't until August, but believe me, after having a baby, it takes you that long just to gather all your brain cells back together. Just look at this as a mandatory cool-down. You WILL open your daycare, but only when YOU ARE ready.

    take the first precious weeks after Zoe is born to focus on just her, not a dozen other children. you won't ever get that time back. cherish it.

    p.s- the book background made me think of you :)

  2. Thanks Megan. I appreciate that. :)
