If you know me or have been reading my blog, you know that I am pregnant. You may not know that I am due in only six short weeks. This is something that has been weighing heavily on my mind today. I only have three tiny weeks left with my sixth graders - I am not ready to leave you. I only have three itty-bitty weeks left with my gorgeous colleagues - I am not ready to leave you either. Then, once my maternity leave begins, I will only have three short weeks (probably less given the size of me) to complete final preparations for the arrival of my son. Obviously, it is this change more than any other on which I should be concentrating, but all my worries swirl into one - and I find myself overwhelmed and unable to be productive in any area of my life. This is a problem when so many people are depending on me.
The truth is I am not very good at change. I like order, organization, and structure. With so many changes soon to be coming my way, I am painfully aware that any semblance of order, organzation, and structure currently present in my life will be flying out the proverbial window. So, how to prepare? Well, as of yesterday, thanks to my many friends in the ISKL village, it looks like junior has enough clothes, toys, and books to get him through the first year and beyond. :) Hubby has been doing a great job of tasking us up each weekend to try and ready the house for baby. My parents are flying in to offer their support come April. And, me? Well, I am still working on that one. Stay tuned though... I am sure as the month progresses my slices will find their way back to this topic.
