Yesterday when I thought I was getting a respite from the smell for a couple days because of rain, I was wrong. Today is a beautiful sunny day, so the hexane and toluene are back. And, worse, I can't find anywhere in this place that does not smell of it. Even worse, the VP of R&D is here today, so I can't just leave, or can I? Maybe I should take the laptop and sit outside for a while, until they need me. I wonder if there is some kind of mask I could wear.
Today starts a rather busy weekend. Tonight is our "hands-on" class where the husband should learn how to hold the baby, burp the baby, and most importantly diaper the baby! YEA! I am sure there will be other helpful and interesting stuff to learn. Pretty exciting. Tomorrow is the hossy tour. I am also scheduled to take my sewing machine in to get it repaired and I am sure we will be tackling the last of the lights. We have the hardest 3 left, foyer and 2-staircase lights. UGH! Sunday is 1st communion for a friend's daughter, where we will hopefully pick up the bassinet and swing. Then, we only have the boring miscellaneous stuff to get for baby's impending arrival. The stuff you really need but no one wants to buy for you, like thermometers and mattress pad protectors. Maybe, if we have time we will start packing the bag! I have been told that we could have the baby at any time (from some insensitive men who think I look big...they should just wait, baby unless really early, still has a lot of growing to do!) The countdown to the theoretical end could begin, we have 7 weeks until due date. But if I know my progeny, she will come when no one is expecting her, least of all her parents! I have been told that this week, marks the week where she could survive outside the womb on her own. That certainly is good news!
