It's Monday morning. Another weekend is over. Was it our last one without the baby? I would love that, but I have my doubts. J is convinced that we have two more weekends before kiddo arrives, and I would like to believe we would just have one. I still have high hopes he will be born on his actual due date.
Either way, one or two weekends, that's not very many.
As we continue to cross things off our list pre-baby I bit the bullet and upgraded up ancient phone to a smart phone. I had been dragging my feet because one of the fave features of my old phone was it's ability to be dropped onto hard surfaces from a significant height and still work. However, as certain keys stopped working, I had to figure out how to send text messages without using certain letters. That was a pain. And more recently and randomly it couldn't download any pictures which were sent with messages. I knew that there had to be an upgrade in my future, but I was also slightly concerned about becoming overly connected to my phone when it could give me access to Facebook or email and about a million other possible apps and downloads I hadn't discovered but knew would suddenly become something i couldn't live without!
In the end, the ability to take, send and receive pics and video was the persuading factor. When we have this little man I don't want to miss a second and I want to be able to share his cuteness with J when he is at work and with our parents through the days and months ahead. Now I am getting used to tough screens and learning all about apps. I did have to smile when we walked into the store and the young guys who was helping us asked which phone we would be upgrading from, I just said it was really old, but he asked again to see it because it really would help him - so I showed him my old girl and he chuckled, and said, "ok, never mind". It is quite the relic so I was only mildly offended.
We'll see if I can figure out some more of the useful apps, like the shopping list one that would be shared between J and I so anytime either of us would be able to see it when we were at the store and then cross things off the list as we bought them. How have I lived without that?!!
And so to the day ahead. I have plans simmering with a couple of friends, so that gives me something to look forward to, and take my mind off the waiting :)
