Vacation time

Friday was my last day of work, I'm now on vacation for either 2 weeks or the baby arrives. I have to start maternity leave on either the arrival date of the baby, or on my due date, even if baby is late.

For the next 2 weeks, there are a few things I would like to do.
  1. Finish hanging the shelves in the baby's room
  2. Tidy up the gifts from the living room and dining room
  3. Finish packing for the hospital, I have some ideas of what I want to change that is currently in the bags
  4. Finish 2 knitting projects I had started for baby. I need to find my knitting books first though for the rest of the instructions

I admit to having been detached from the pregnancy, however, at my last baby shower mom gave me a cute little fleece sleeper, for some reason, after receiving it, for the rest of the day, all I could imagine was holding our baby dressed in the sleeper on my knees slightly rocking the baby back and forth to soothe the baby to sleep.

3 weeks to go

Just 3 more weeks of work to go, and this week is a short week for 2 reasons.
1) It's Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada, so Monday is a statutory holiday
2) I'm taking Tuesday off due to needing to take 6 days off before my official vacation begins and having 2 doctor's appointments on Tuesday.

I can't count on how long it will take for baby to arrive, but I can count how many days of work left, there are 14 business days left, or which I should take 6 off, so 8 days :) I probably won't get all 6 days taken, so I'll have to take a few as payout at the end of the year, but the fewer the better. At most I hope to be able to take 3 of those 6 days remaining because they are lieu and floater days, so if I don't take them, they are lost.

I still haven't taken any pictures of our pregnancy, I suppose I should do that since the baby could come at any time. I'm debating between having hubby take some, or one of our friends, since we have 2 that are professional photographers. It's more the timing than anything else.
