Kiss List and More Where That Came From


Kissing Lola Moon

Grateful for my blog friends and the amazing supportive words, and the Paypal donations for maternity leave, just completely humbled, and promising, promising! to pass it on.

Reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Contracting day and night, mostly night or when walking

Water Breaking, Plug et al Bodily Functions Relating To Birth none

Dining with Mr. Curry, kids all elsewhere, cheap burger joint, ate half a basket of french fries and onion rings and a burger, tried to keep myself from crying over said burger when Mr. Curry told me I was beautiful, because I feel like the bloat monster moat monster freckled face jiggly juggle

Speaking of Crying it was last night, when I intended to make love to my husband in our new bed but instead ended up crying and crying for a good half hour while he listened and talked to me and did I ever tell you all I love my husband?

Listening To Lola talking. non. stop. nervous energy.

Luxuriating in new queen sized plush top mattress via my wonderful mom, amaaaazing, two and half hour nap today

Working Weekend woke at 6am this morning to go to work with Mr. Curry ( he is taking weekend work all the time now ) and Lola, and climbed into a SEMI TRAILOR at nine months overdue and pregnant ( no pictures ) marveled at Mr. Curry's ability to fit enormous TRex size Mayflower truck into extremely small space ( metaphor intended )

Enjoying the beautiful blue icicle lights Mr. Curry and Ian hung around our house, and our Christmas tree, which put together with a new baby, our new baby, is really too much happiness for any one girl

Loving watching TV with Mr. Curry each night, with fire log crackling and candles lit, most often eating some form of chocolate and receiving a foot rub

Hating my anxiety

Inspired by A Million Miles In A Thousand Years

Closer to Ever...feeling her move in my belly is now so emotional, I feel her feet, her entire feet, pressing upward on my ribs and cannot believe this entire brand new person is completely formed and living INSIDE OF ME, just waiting to come out, my daughter, my girl, our girl, oh my gosh!

Hoping my OBGYN appointments tomorrow ( Mr. Curry took the day off to come with me, yay! ) will result in something, even swiping of membranes...

You are going to have a beautiful Saggitarian baby. And us Saggies are completely awesome, ergo, Ever will be completely awesome. :)

She Looks Like a Mom said...

YAY for all of the wonderful things in this list, especially the appointments tomorrow!! Wishing you all the best.

Annie said...

Hi Maggie,
Thanks for sharing all the news. I keep checking every day. Amazing, isn't it, fully formed Ever, almost ready to make her debut? Thank you for your kind words about my Mom.

Melanie's Randomness said...

Best wishes with it all!!! =)

Only A Girl said...

So excited for you! Love this list. :)

Elizabeth said...

November 29th would be a beautiful birthday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Your list is beautiful and hilarious all at once. I went two weeks over with my first two kiddos and remember eating a giant hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and nuts nearly every day -- "what's another two pounds, I thought?"

I'm so excited for you! Hang in there --

I love the list.

Stumbled across your blog recently on a three-hour bloggy rabbit trail. I'm enjoying getting to know you, and your family and your point-of-view...lovely writing. I loved the book A Million Miles in a Thousands Years...read it twice, back to back, and then drove two hours to hear Donald Miller talk about the book.

Wishing you the best with the birth of your beautiful daughter!

Angella Lister said...

wonderful!

Marion said...

You are truly blessed, Maggie. I hope Ms. Ever comes soon. Oh, and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is an awesome book!!

Sending you hugs, prayers & blessings,

Marion

Holding your (virtual) hand while you wait...

tick...
tick...

...it can feel like forever. (har har)

Ms. Moon said...

Such a beautiful list, Maggie. I was thinking the other day that although I know you have felt over-tested by your doctors, compared to the ones here, they are being remarkably patient. I swear- they would have done a section on you two weeks ago. So interventive.
I think that Ever is going to be here very soon. I think that she is going to be the most beautiful baby girl in the world. And of course you're beautiful. Of course you are.

Josey said...

Love this whole post. Thinking about you today!!!

Sondra said...

Great List... Keep on trying to be patient... Sending much energy your way today. All will be well.

Caroline @ The Feminist Housewife said...

I feel your pain! My first was a week overdue. *hugs* Hang in there! You won't be pregnant forever, I promise!

clearness said...

Your new bed sounds amazing. I want one.

Zip n Tizzy said...

Svasti took the words right out of my mouth, so I'll second that. I have a Sag husband and a Sag son - This girl of yours is going to LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE!
Can't wait to meet her!

Mwa said...

Holding my breath... You have a wonderful birth now!

See Kate run. said...

A fantastic list. I a hoping for today to be a very grand Ever birth day. You never know. :)

Petit fleur said...

I like this Maggie. It's so great that you notice things and remember them. You remember such little things and how they connect to your thoughts/emotions. That is so cool.

I feel like i"m in a fog half the time.

Love you love you love you.

I went one week over with both of mine. It's hard; I remember. The "swipe" did work for me, so fingers crossed from over here.
Good luck! xx

Annje said...

I haven't had much time to read blogs lately, but I keep checking yours to see if I can get a glimpse of little Ever. I know how anxious I got at the end, that bloated uncomfortable, not-at-all-beautiful feeling and the yearning to finally see the baby... and then suddenly she will be here and all that waiting time just disappears and it will be like she was always there

I will cross my fingers for some baby action for you... sex just might do it, if the tears subside... and pineapple for some reason.

Oh, and I hope you got a waterproof mattress cover for the new bed! just in case...

I loved the Girl with the dragon tattoo series, I inhaled them, devoured them... you will want to nurse Ever for hours just to keep reading ;-)

Ida Mae said...

still remembering that Ever is coming, AFTER I shut down my compter "for the night" haha what's that? and then rebooting.. just to check!

the anticipation is killing me!

so excited!
Good Luck Maggie May!

Thinking of you.

I just LOVE blue Christmas lights. The lights are about the only part of the holiday I enjoy (besides time off work).

Love you!
