My theory of relativity

I can't tell you how many times in the past week I've been told that the last 6-8 weeks of my pregnancy are going to be the longest weeks of my life. I'm sure the days will feel long and uncomfortable, but I have so much to get done in my remaining 7 1/2 weeks that I'm afraid the actual weeks are going to slip through my fingers.
I've still got to go through our storage unit and repack and label everything (remember how I was busy puking the first time we packed?), I've got to organize all the baby stuff we've accumulated over the last 5 months, I've got to get our birth announcements addressed, the Moses Basket cover made, establish a home for the bassinett at my parents house, preferably tackle the other half-dozen or so sewing projects I wanted done for this baby, figure out how in the world we are going to make our money stretch into all the corners it needs to, buy a grundle of plane tickets, and on and on and on.

I only have 7 weekends left, and that very nearly makes me hyperventilate. Oh wait, that's just another contraction centered right below my lungs. I hate those.
And I'm still tired. When, perchance, am I going to get that mad burst of nesting energy? It is welcome to start any time.
3 1/2 days until my Mom comes home. I did finally hear from my parents (see how happy they look?) So I know they are alive and well out there on that boat/ship/vessel.
That makes me feel a little better about keeping the home fires burning. It's been my siblings' last week of school, and we have finally made it past all the tests and into the yearbook/field days, so the pressure's off.... in some ways. I can't wait to be able to go to bed and not worry whether everyone's taken care of and reminded to do X, Y and Z first. On the bright side Mr. Renn has reassured me that I'll make a good mom. You can never hear that too many times.

Speaking of relativity...I noticed that of your 21 "favorite movies", the number of them that I have ever seen or even heard of I guess one's movie likes or dislikes is relative to their age, college attended, and course of study.
