I am exceedingly grateful for all of the love and affection pouring out from all of my friends and family during this final few weeks of the twin pregnancy ~ let me make that absolutely clear.
I am also extremely tired and generally uninterested in chatting much by phone or email, no matter how interesting the chatter might be at a more normal time of my life. I’m about 150 emails and 40 phone calls behind the game right now and may have to resort to that almost-unheard-of Delete Everything And Start Over tactic (if anyone knows a better desperation shortcut, I would be willing to entertain the concept). I suspect this is probably normal given the amount of strain on the body that this is turning out to be.
So here’s the deal: I will try to at least post SOMETHING every day (it will probably look a lot like “Still pregnant.”) and you, in return, will not worry excessively about me. This doesn’t mean you can’t call me; just don’t freak out if I don’t call you in the time frame you or I would typically consider courteous.
Deal? I love you guys and appreciate the showering of attention. I just cannot return all the phone calls without devoting a significant amount of energy to it and I need all of that energy to get up and pee 36,000 times a day. So I will keep you posted, if not necessarily enthralled, and you will let me off the hook of feeling guilty for not returning each and every (sincerely appreciated!) phone call/email. OK?
Thanks! Let me top it off by letting you know that I’m battling a head cold right now as well…
