Woefully behind

Even though I’ve hardly left the couch the past few weeks, I’ve managed to become behind in almost every venture.  I’m not even counting housework, as my doctor said, “I don’t care if it collapses, ignore it.”

Tuesday the restrictions are lifted and I can herd the dustbunnies, negotiate a truce with the laundry, and wipe out anything that may be growing in the bathrooms.  It’s probably telling that these things weigh so heavily on my mind.

It won’t be long.

Last night I skirted doctor’s orders and headed down to the beach with Margo for some pictures.  I didn’t want to miss what will be my last opportunity for maternity pictures.  It’s a closing chapter in my life, bittersweet with relief and very little regret.

These two are my favorites, but check out her post for more.

Heather you are beautiful! You remind me a :::little::: of the girl on Six Feet Under. I’ve been thinking about you!

Very beautiful Heather!

I know what you mean about this chapter of your life closing and being bittersweet. Can’t wait to hear about the new little one’s arrival and see the cute pictures you and Margo produce….

The one with the grass blooms leaning in the wind (5th in Margo’s post) is my favorite.

You have always been a beautiful girl. These pictures Margo took are breathless. I do like your two you picked out the most. Your husband is one lucky fellow! I hope you are doing well and I just can’t wait to see what you have been hiding for the past 9 months.

Absolutely wonderful photos! How fun, too..

In all my hopes that my house just falls down, with the endless backlog, here.. it simply hasn’t yet! *giggle*
