38 hours to go

My c-section is scheduled for 10:30 AM on Monday morning.

That's like 38 hours away.

I'm making peace with the fact that my long "to do before the baby comes" list is not going to be completed. I hadn't factored in many of the basic requirements such as "make sure that all of the kids fingernails are cut short before bringing a newborn into the house."

Cutting children's fingernails is a long, painful act of penance in my house.

At this rate slow prep rate, I'm going to be lucky to have my hospital bag packed by Monday.
