I Had A Couple Of Babies Sunday Night-I'm Exhausted.

I am getting this one in just by the skin of my teeth. I am only getting this post in because all but one of the pregnant ladies in town delivered their baby in the last 24 hours. The last one is here and I am slowly trying to coax the baby out. I am watching her baby's fetal heart rate and her contractions on a flat screen TV here at the nurse's station while she sleeps. I am waiting for the next busload of pregnant ladies to drop in. Last night was fun, but I would have appreciated time to pee and 15 minutes to shove some food in my gullet. Tonight, I get to eat my lunch AND write this-such luxury!

One of the ServPro dudes came by this morning before I went to sleep. The only places that are still damp are Mr. Misha's bathroom and the kitchen. So he was able to remove 6 fans and a dehumidifier. I am hoping that my eyeball juice will regenerate itself when this is all over- until then, I encourage you all to buy stock in Carmex and Visine. Mr. Misha and I are going through it like it's crack. I wonder how the dogs have not seemed to be bothered by the drop in humidity. I keep checking their noses and eyes- they seem fine.

I have the next 10 days off. Goals for my days off:

  • Get my mom safely through her hospital stay. She is having spine surgery on Thursday. If she survives the hospital stay without getting an infection or a bad bleed, I will be happy. Surgery scares her-recovery scares me. It's all about perspective.

  • Get a floor installed in my house. This is complicated by the fact that my landlord was just seated on a jury Monday. I hope the case is short and they don't deliberate long. I need her to be out of the courthouse so we can get the ball rolling with the reconstruction. I WANT THIS OVER WITH.

  • Get re-certified for Neonatal resuscitation. I have to do it every two years. It's relatively easy, it's just time consuming.

  • Get the dogs to the vet and get their shots up to date.

  • Get the house put back together and arrange a charity pick-up of all the stuff I am purging.

  • Get the backyard cleaned up and ready for the summer.

  • Get some sleep.

  • Get a pedicure.
I think that is a reasonable list? Isn't it? I will be enlisting the help of my nephew, Joseph, do all of the heavy lifting and manual labor. I think I can do it. Stay tuned.
