Mari Gras???

Okay, so I had my doctor visit yesterday. All things are normal and the baby is ready, but apparently my body isn't. So I'm in relaxation overdrive and researching natural methods for inducing. My doctor will give me a week before we start talking about induction. I wasn't happy to hear that, but still. For now, I just need to pray and remain calm and not get so worked up about it. No easy feat for someone with my personality. I know I tend to overly obsess.

Instead, I concentrated on my laboring music mix. Here it is:
I realize most labors last longer than the 2.4 hours I have in there, but this is just to help motivate me and relax me. Hopefully, I won't forget my ipod like I did last night. I've written it on my hand to remember to take it home. I also remembered to bring my birth plan up here to make copies.

Those were the last items on my list that I hadn't gotten accomplished. Oh and I must brag: even thought Don still wasn't feeling up to snuff yesterday, he'd picked up a good portion of our bedroom and cleaned it out. I was so happy and thankful! We went for a 2 mile walk last night and then had El Fenix for dinner. I ate an entire bowl of salsa and all of the jalapenos that came with my 1/2 order of nachos. When I got home, I had a small bowl of mexican corn and loaded up on the valentina sauce and chili powder. My tongue was sufficiently numb and I feared my stomach would be screaming at me later. I think the only thing that I succeeded in doing was making me sleep less. I got up at 4:30 and tried to force myself to go back to sleep. It wasn't going to happen, so I took a long shower, officially did my hair, made some breakfast, and lounged until it was time to go to work. I sat in traffic for an hour and about halfway through, my head was bobbing. I was EXHAUSTED! Still am. Head bobbing up and down, and me reading through pages and pages of information online doesn't help.

Anyhow, tonight I feel like getting in the Mardi Gras spirit and loading up for a nice long Lent. I jokingly said that if the baby came today, it would be Mari Gras instead of Mardi Gras. :) Of course, that would mean we'd have to celebrate Mardi Gras every year in addition to her birthday. ha ha! What is your indulgence? I'm thinking Cheesecake Factory or a Meal for Two from Central Market with some chocolate cake. YUM!
