Ya’ll Ready for This?

I have officially sorted, packed, organized and repacked every single item we own.  Isn’t moving great?  It at least feels good to purge so much clutter!  And moving twice in two years sort of gives you that little bit of extra motivation to throw out those things you just couldn’t bring yourself to toss the first time.

One interesting piece of nostalgia I ran across was my old high school basketball warm-up CD that my dad put together for me.  I had to laugh at many of the songs on the mix… but good memories nonetheless.  And that was the inspiration for the name of my post today.  Although, it has absolutely nothing to do with my topic!  Well, maybe not nothing.

Music has a very strong ability to induce certain emotions and attitudes for the different situations in our lives.  That’s why I put together a birthing playlist this time around.  And although I don’t think my high school warm up CD and my birthing playlist will have even one song in common… I hope they will both share the legacy of bringing back good memories when I recall those events they were meant for.

So, back to the topic.  Ya’ll ready for this?

I will be live blogging the birth!!

I discussed it with my dear hubby and, although he thought I was crazy, (which isn’t anything new…) he also seemed mildly amused by the idea, so we’re going to give it a shot.  No worries… we won’t be posting any videos if that’s what you were wondering!  And I’m also not going to promise anything.  My hope is to have short and sweet updates at regular intervals until Baby is born.

Of course, if it just becomes too much of a hassle, I’ll quit.  Yup.  I’ll be a quitter; I won’t mind one bit.  So just be prepared to be cut off short during the most exciting part of the story :)  The plan is to have Jake give a few updates when it becomes too much work for me to type, but again… don’t be surprised if that doesn’t happen.  I’ve never done something like this before, so I’m really not sure how it will play out.  This is our test run, so we’ll see how it goes!

Our house is freshly cleaned, and I packed the just-in-case hospital bag yesterday.  I’ve got my essential oils all prepared for aroma therapy, and the birthing tub is set up in the dining room… so we’re about ready for this baby to be here!  Let me know if you want a text at the start of labor so you can follow along!  Can’t wait!!
