I suddenly feel like the Jeopardy! theme song is my new leitmotif. Every time I talk to anyone, the subtext is "any minute now! any minute now!" and that weird little ditty is the soundtrack in my mind. It's an odd feeling. Having the certaintly of a week from today being the last possible day is starting to get less scary and more comforting, so that's good.

Mike and I ditched plans to join friends for cheap burgers at a smokey bar and instead spent last night having a nice dinner with a lot of good conversation. Afterward, we found ourselves in the living room chatting about college days for a good hour. Somehow, we managed to learn things about each other that we hadn't known before. That was comforting, too, and a testament, I think, to our marriage. It is going to be so important to remember to focus on each other as well when the time comes for us to be all-baby, all-the-time. But I think we are aware enough of the potential pitfall to not let it happen.

Yesterday, I had a piece of Dove chocolate -- the ones with the fortunes on the wrappers -- and my wrapper told me "It's the anticipation that makes the pleasure." Let's hope that's right.

The lunch I went to with Mike, (the one that made me sick this morning) we got fortune cookies. Mine said:

"You are more fortunate than you know."

True enough.
