Final Day of Work!

As I am nearing the end of my pregnancy (37 wks 4 days as of this post) I have the next couple weeks to do my finishing touches on my nursery and relax and enjoy the last moments of my life without having a baby. With labor and delivery slowly approaching I am even more anxious and excited to go through this process and start my life as a new mom.

I had an amazing time on Friday, which was my last day of work, there was a St. Patricks Day/Going Away Party for me at my school with my students. After the work day was over a couple of my coworkers took me out to one of my favorite restaurants, Dixie Kitchen, and we enjoyed a great meal and girl talk!

I plan to spend time writing, working on new jewelry for my business Young Beautiful Fly  , in addition to putting up the baby’s bassinet and bed. The bassinet and bed is all I have left to finish up the nursery so I think I did pretty good with making sure that I was prepared for my baby girls arrival. I often sit in the room and look at all her stuff and go through the closet and look at her clothes and smell them just thinking about how much my life is going to change in an amazing way! As you can tell I am already, absolutely obsessed with my baby and she hasn’t even made it here yet. I have so many plans on things that we will do during the summer and I am so looking forward to that.

Oh My…

So it’s Monday again! If you live in or near Chicago you know that we had a ton of snow and schools were closed on Friday. Yay for a Snow Day for all the teachers (including myself)! I think we were happier than the kids.

So most of you all know that I’m pregnant. I’m a few days away from being 33 weeks. Time is just dragging for me these days. I just want to have my baby girl already!

I’m currently at work and I am just tired and not really wanting to be here. My family and friends told me that this day would come in my pregnancy where I just did not want to work anymore. I thought they were just exaggerating but… it’s really true!

This is totally how I am feeling. I have 4 more weeks until I go on maternity leave but I’m not sure if I’m going to make it. I have such a hard time just getting myself out of bed to come to work and finding any type of motivation to actually be here.

I guess I’m just ready to have my baby and begin this journey of being a mom. I really am looking forward to it!

I wonder how many of you have the Monday morning blues today?
