Anyway.......... on the other end was the SW (social worker), she asked if I had a few minutes, really do yo have to ask?, of course I do. She says, "well, you need to start making arrangements, this is your travel call." My head was racing, I start crying of course, my mind goes to, Oh no, my sister is going to kill me. She is having our baby shower next Sat., I even said that to the SW, she kept asking me how I felt, what I was thinking. Again, I am thinking, really, do you have to ask??
So........ I get off the phone with the SW and I call my sister. I preface the call with, "please do not kill me" (she had already moved the shower up a week because I told her I really felt she should.) My sister says,"why am I going to kill you?" So, I tell her the news, she screams in my ear, I am telling you, she is one proud aunt. She started screaming to her co-workers about it, my ear was about to blow!!!
Then........ I get off the phone with my sis and call my mom. I tell her and she starts screaming too, telling my grandma about her grandbaby coming home. My poor grams thought someone was hurt, by now, my ear is hurting my head is spinning. I am trying to think of all the people I had to call, all the appointments I needed to change.
Luckily......... I was able to change appointments for vaccinations,the pediatrician consulting appointment and a Dr's appointment. Thank goodness they all knew what we were doing and were all able to move the appointments up. I was so thankful that they worked with me.
Now....... my head still continues to spin with everything that needs to be done and what to pack. I have yet to get Holden's room ready, the new floors will be done on Tues. and then we can put his crib together. Cutting it close??? Yes and you know what? I would not have it any other way, this will definitely help the time fly by!! Stressed, yes, anxious, yes, nervous, yes, picking our son up and holding him in our arms, priceless!!!!
