Our suitcase has been packed for two weeks. Our house is (mostly) spotless. The newborn napper is set up beside our bed. The freezer is stocked. Our cars are clean, and the car seat base is in place. And now we wait. Wonder what we’ve been doing to pass the time?
We go to the movies. Nick’s choice: Contagion. My choice: The Help. Both highly recommended. And there is definitely popcorn involved.
I blog from the glider in the nursery — easily my favorite room in the house.
Nick studies for the GMATs. While simultaneously seeking culinary inspiration, apparently.
We take a minimum of three walks per day.
We play games like Farkle and Scrabble.
We watch Mad Men. In fact, I don’t even want to admit how many episodes we’ve streamed in the past two weeks.
We savor the scent of pumpkin spice candles and the taste of chewy pumpkin cookies.
Mostly we just enjoy our little family of two while waiting with anticipation to become a family of three.
