The Wait


My wife and I are expecting our second child any day now (the due date was on the 6th). She has been having contractions for two weeks now, but no signs of real labor yet. The wait is killing us both, we are sitting around all day thinking that the baby is going to decide to arrive any moment. I am done with work for the summer, so I should be happy, but I feel like I can't do anything until the baby arrives. We can't even decide what to eat for dinner. After a week of this I finally started building a shed in my backyard, but I don't know from day to day if I am going to be able to work on it. The only thing I can compare it to is a plane ride that seems to go on forever. You know those flights that never seem to end, you're tired and restless, but you can't get comfortable... This is torture.


Listening to: Coldplay- X & Y

Tell me about it, bro. Since Nate was a month early we expected the same from Julia. But, oh no, she had to go full term.

Good luck to you both. Hope all goes well.

So what's the deal with the picture? To much redneck in me to be able to decipher it.

It's a painting entitled "Waiting", not sure who painted it, but it is how I've been feeling lately.
