Sitting in my office, getting tasks crossed off my list. To get done what a I really need to get done, I'll hook up my backups to another machine and see if I can get what I need. Finger's crossed. After hearing yesterday that I'd be without my laptop for about a week, I felt a bit of panic and a bit of excitement at the same time. My work, my life is on that machine. The panic came with the hopes that I had everything backed up properly, but still, another machine may not be able to help me accomplish all I need to finish up this week. The excitement came with knowing that this set-back would at least force me to rest a little more, something I know I need. Sometimes it feels like there's too much to do and I need to hurry and finish before baby arrives, but now, there aren't as many options. I wish there were more time to visit all the great friends I've made online or answer all the sweet comments, there just isn't. There are projects sitting in folders on my desktop that just may not be completed before the big day, but today I'm realizing that it's ok. It's not what I wanted. I wanted to be superwoman and have it all done... and there may still be time. If not, I'll be ok with that. I'm turning a new leaf. I'm still working hard, but I'm not working crazy. Last night, instead of working into the night with the gleam of a computer screen, I capped off my evening with milk and a cookie (yes, singular, cookie) with my husband, and it was good. A contraction woke me up in the middle of the night, and then, another one. It went on for about 45 minutes and then stopped. So now, I'm sitting in my office, getting tasks crossed off my list.
