Just a quick update from my maternity leave: No baby yet. I still have 8 more days until my due date... I'm excited and nervous and happy and scared and every other emotion under the planet! I cry really easily this week - so it's a good thing I'm not on-air. I'd be a mess! It's good to have a little time to prepare mentally and emotionally, so I'm glad I have a few days to myself. I really miss being at work, though - I called Tom twice on Monday just to say "Hey!" and I think I call Joel (my husband) about 50 times a day at his work. I get so lonely - I'm not used to being at home during the day. I'm thankful for my cat!
Speaking of calling people, it's gotten to the point now where I can't even call my own Mom or Dad just to chat! Everytime they answer the phone and hear my voice, they say: "Hi Sarah!!! Is it time???" and I'm like "No, Dad. I was just calling to say hello!" and then he sounds disappointed! I even have friends and family that don't want me to call them anymore because they get too excited! So I'm banned from my phone. It's sad!
This week (baby or not) will prove to be a busy one - my birthday is on Friday and then there's Christmas Eve with family and Christmas day with more family! We'll see if Olivia decides to make her debut sometime in there - my husband is convinced she's going to be my birthday present (the 22nd). I'll keep you posted!
I hope your week leading up to Christmas is a good one!
