Home, sweet home

I don't feel like crying anymore.

I've had the giggles all day. Even when I went for my torturous waxing this afternoon, I was giggly. Deanna is working at a new salon that hands out WINE for every client. THANK YOU, SALON!!! And she said it's really slow lately, so I should drop by just to chill, have a glass on the patio overlooking the marina, and chat. I love my waxer.

So- I am not unpacked yet, but I should probably do that tonight. We have some couch surfers coming in, but I forget who they are/how many they are. It's been awhile since we said they could come. Whatever- new people, new adventures. We shall see if they are rad, hmm?

I talked to my mom on the phone for the first time in a couple of weeks today and it took me about 15 minutes to give her a whole rundown of my trip to Africa. Most of it was stories from dance floors. Guess that's just the way I prefer to spend my time. Also, I broke my foot from so much dancing. Lame!

Mom told me my sister is having some issues with her pregnancy- she's at 35 weeks and her mucus is gone or something and she's dilated. I don't know how long babies are supposed to stay in for, but mom says it's too early for my nephew to meet the world. I'm thinking I should shoot down to San Diego for at least a few days to help my sis out so she can rest. She's working until Friday, then she's off to put her feet up and keep the baby in for as long as she can. I'm pretty sure my niece won't mind me being around either- we have super lots of fun together.

I think it's 40 weeks. The mucus plug falling out at 35 isn't that big of a deal (if I remember correctly).

Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts said...

the iNDefatigable mjenks is correct, its 40 weeks to term for pregnancies.

Welcome back my dear!!!!!

Heeeeyyyy, my sister's 35 weeks too (and carrying a boy as well). Rock on, sister friend. And your sis and baby should be fine. I believe the baby can survive on his own far before now, so all's well. :)
Bet you're glad to be home!

I wonder how my roommate would feel if I started taking in couch surfers...

More info:

To save you a click: Some women will lose their mucous plug or part of their mucous plug weeks before they go into labor. Losing your mucous plug does not always mean labor will begin shortly. Keep in mind that even if a woman has begun to dilate, it may be weeks before she actually goes into labor.

Still, I'm sure she'd love a visit. Especially if you bring ice cream.

ps: i hope to never have to look up mucous plug again.

mjenks, Thanks! This put me at ease.

Tee, It's good to be back.

Kim, Our sisters kids are kind of like twins then, right?

Rassles, It takes a certain type of attitude about strangers and trust to be into couchsurfing. More than a million members worldwide though, so lots of other people think it's great too!

Bob, As always, you are very helpful. And cute.
