Dream on...

So I had a dream the other night that I was in labor for 5 minutes and 43 seconds. I was congratulated all around on an efficient and record-breaking labor.

Unfortunately, this looks not to be the case. My water broke this morning at 5am, we went to the hospital, got hooked up to machines, and though this baby will be born sometime today or tomorrow, we got sent home because I'm just in "latent labor", which, apparently, means exactly the opposite of what it sounds (I never could get that one straight on the SATs). So, my job for the day is walking and walking and waiting for this to get to be as uncomfortable as it can get before returning to the hospital this afternoon. If I haven't moved things along by tonight, they might have to induce. And so walking is a better alternative.

So, we're off to the bank to deposit some checks, off to the supermarket to buy some diapers and maybe a pacifier (yes, because this is a week early, we are totally unprepared, since I'm never early for anything), and off to the accountants to sign some tax forms. And then, hopefully, off to the hospital to endure some excruciating pain while squeezing a baby out of my, well, you know the drill.

Matthew will likely be updating maniacally over on thebarnstorming, so check in there.

Please, expect much less of me.
