Why is it

Why is it that tonight--the first night of DH's week long trip out of town (again!)--Maggie decides to do the up and down night time routine? She's been going down so good. It's barely taken 10 minutes to get her to go to sleep once we finish her stories. Tonight? Oh, tonight, she's been in and out for over an hour now. ugh! I'm ready for a break! Plus I've got an hour and a half left to work before I can start to chill out.

Why is it that I decided to eat ravioli and tomato sauce, washed down by Orangina (fizzy carbonated orange juice, basically) on the same night that I'm already suffering from a massive case of heartburn. Oh, and on the same night that I forgot to go buy more Pepsid Complete and have only 2 Tums (useless though they are) left. Seriously. At one point I was intelligent. lol

Why is it that O'Neill the smelly cat would quite happily spend his entire life outside EXCEPT to come inside to poop and stink up the joint. Seriously! What's that all about? lol

Why is it that Meg the sneaky cat waits until I've almost got Maggie calmed down and asleep to dash into her room and under her bed--creating yet another round of hullabaloo to guarantee that Maggie will be wide awake again.

Why is it that I'm so convinced that this baby is going to come early? Seriously...I'm only 32 and a half weeks. Why am I feeling that she'll be here in another 2 or 3 weeks instead of another 5 or 6 weeks?

Why is it that I'm using "seriously" in every other sentence? Don't I know more words? lol I swear that I do--I know lots of words. They just don't seem to be entering my feeble brain at the moment.

Ok...Princess Jumping Beans has been quiet for 10 minutes now. Maybe she's finally asleep, which means that maybe I can start on my work so that maybe I can get done at a reasonable time. Maybe her little sister will NOT poke my bladder every 30 minutes tonight so that I have to get up at that interval to pee. Boy, I was at least 36 weeks last time before I was thoroughly fed up. Can I really be this fed up at 32 and a half weeks? What if they're wrong with the date and I'm really another 3 or 4 weeks further along?

lol...sorry about all the madness. I'm feeling a bit scattered. hehehe What else is new, right? lol

Hope she arrives early (and healthy) to give you a break. :)

Hope you were able to get some work done.

Ugh. Heartburn sucks! I'm sure Maggie will settle down in a few day. My girls did that too when Andrew would go out of town. Pop that baby out already, will ya? :)
