The Christmas Tree Incident, Part 6.

Today on Square Piece, I’m throwing caution to the wind and admitting just how demented I really am (and how patient and understanding my husband is).

Pregnancy hormones.

Scary, intense stuff, mmmmkay?

One of the realizations that hit me when I was calculating our due date (Oct. 30th), was that this baby’s coming right at the beginning of our busiest time of year!  If all goes well and healthy, not only will I be abandoning my clients during the holidays (Lindsday will be shadowing me to pick up my techniques and help with the overflow), I’ll be learning how to care for an infant right when I usually obsess over putting up my Christmas tree!

Not the Christmas tree!  Oh no no no

You see, my Christmas tree makes me feel calm and peaceful.  It’s my drug.  (You’d know that if you read this.)

What if I’m too tired to put up my Christmas tree?  What if we go all season with no twinkly lights?

Considering that Brian has been accepting incredibly inconvenient requests on my behalf (egg drop soup at 10:00A.M.?), I didn’t think it would be too much to express my urgency over the Christmas tree.

It never hurts to shed a few tears either…

Welllllllll, guess who didn’t have plans last night.

Guess who managed to get assistance dragging the Christmas tree out of the garage.

Guess who thought it’d be a good idea to decorate a tree while she could still reach it without a big ol’ belly being in the way.

No, not Square Piece.  Square Piece would never do anything like that.

Pregnant Square Piece, though?  Piece.  O’.  Cake.

I think every pregnant woman needs a Christmas tree.

And you know what my hubby had to say about it…?

    Okay, I was wondering how you were going to handle Christmas trees, pregnancy, my October appointment, and my Christmas or New Year appointment. (giggle). See you Wednesday.

    LOL When I was reading I thought that you should decorate it early and have it already done, I obsess over Christmas decorations also. Soooo you got me hook, line and sinker!

    I was thinking that a “seasonal” tree would be cute though.

    Maybe you could find a talented landscaper to help wire up an outdoor with twinkly lights this summer. And then, maaaaaaybe, you could turn it on together in a tree lighting fest for baby’s first holiday?

    Since we broke down on our way home from GA, I realized I missed this entry!
    LOL I loved it and thought it was just square piece enough to actually happen but loved it even more when it said April Fools!!!xoxo
