Spin Cycle: Waiting, Waiting and more Waiting

Spin Cycle week 2. I ditched week 1 because I just haven’t had the time to blog that I used to. I would blog before the hubby got home from work. Now with his fancy-pants new job he beats me home. And I hate it. That he beats me home, not the new job. That…is amazing. But that’s neither here nor there. This is about the spin cycle which I thought was long gone but Jen decided to be super-awesome and bring it back. So it gives me a weekly forum to write a think-piece (a thank you Cameron Crowe). And this week’s topic is waiting. And oh there is so much that I am waiting for lately.

The past 2 weeks I have been waiting for my 4 day vacation. The only vacation I will get until my extended vacation come November when the bambino/a will be arriving. I have been waiting in anticipation to see how the weather was going to hold up. No tornadoes expected while we’re there. Woo hoo! And thankfully the people that we are visiting had no damage from the storms from earlier in the week. I have been waiting to see if the hubby was going to get a better attitude about our trip. Yes dear, I know we don’t have a ton of money but not everything is about the money… sometimes it’s about our sanity. And I have been waiting just because I need to get away. Work has been crazy hectic and just getting out of the city and ignoring any and all phone calls from work will be so nice.

I have also been waiting for the summer. Normally summer is just another season but this year, for some reason, I am so excited for summer. I can’t wait until my parents open their pool (I’m still waiting mom!). I am also just waiting to just have the warm weather for a nice change. There are things I want to get done outside so it will be nice to be able to do them.

I have also been waiting not-so-patiently for my upcoming sonogram. It feels like the wait is forever. But on June 7th at 10:30 we will be going in to find out if we will have a girl or a boy. And I can barely stand the wait. Especially when my doctor’s office tried to reschedule it. Sorry but no. We will be getting it done earlier now in the day instead of later. And after that I will know what to expect. At least as far as what I need to buy (or not buy seeing that I have 3 crates of boy clothes just chilling until June 7th!).

And of course the wait is on until the actual birth. 5 more months. So crazy! I can’t believe it is going by so slowly but quickly at the same time! And there is so much to do. We need to buy a new crib (Leo’s was recalled so we had to return it. But for a full retail refund! Score!), get the Raider room ready to be a baby room and so on.

So there is a lot of waiting going on in the Fernandez household. And I am not a patient person. So I am just ready for all these things that I’m waiting for to happen! To see what other people are waiting on go check it out!

So sorry for making you wait on me! This weekend has packed more into it than normal weekends. Anyway, I am so excited for you, yes about the upcoming vacation, but more so about the sonogram and birth! Just knowing what the baby will be puts so much finality on the preparations! And the wait must be difficult. You're linked!

Waiting for my vacation used to make me giddy the closer it got.

I've been waiting for summer too, and finally it is here.

Congratulations on the new baby!

Waiting for the Spin Cycle to come back was well worth the WAIT? Right? Congrats and good luck on your impending arrival!

Waiting during pregnancy is so hard, yet so much fun, too. Congratulations!

I'm over from the spin cycle.

Congrats on the new job for the hubby and on the upcoming baby news. If I remember correctly (and I may not because I haven't been pregnant in 800 years) waiting for the first one was a lot less hard than waiting for the last one.

Stopping over from the Spin Cycle.

Those pregnancy milestone waits can be rough. That last month is a doozy.

Hooray for sonograms though, not very many days of waiting left. Congrats.
