The last...

So it hit me this morning while I was getting a new tube of toothpaste out to brush my pearly whites, that this tube of paste would be the last one I would open before Baby B comes. I am pretty sure we can use a tube for like...2.5 months and she comes before that so there you have it. I got pretty excited. And so this whole morning I have been thinking of random ways to measure the time before Baby B gets here.

For instance: this morning was the last Thursday I will work before she comes, then I have 60 Thursday's of no work, 52 of them with a baby.
Our car will only drive like 2000-3000 more km's until we add a baby seat to the back, and then we'll travel as a family of three from then on.
I have no more paycheques coming in, today was my last one. EI doesn't start for 28 days. Sad state of affairs!
I am sure I will think of a million more today, but I just wanted to give you an idea. I think it's fun to count down to the most exciting life altering day of my life (aside from when I got married, but that's old news now).
So, maybe you all should pick something you are looking forward to and start counting down in weird ways too. Good luck, and have fun.

I would have a much longer countdown for Baby Nelson! Are you going to get sick leave payments? Hope to see you Saturday night!

You are so random!
I would count down, but I have nothing to look forward to...I need to decide when I am going to take some vacation time so I can count down to that!
Happy last thursday working!!
Woohoo 64 days!!!

That IS fun! I do that sort of thing all the time. My next doc appointment will be at 27 weeks, then I have one at 30 weeks, and then I get to have one every two weeks from then on out. I feel like time has flown since we found out the gender and all that good stuff.
We are trying to fill our calendar with fun stuff to do so that time goes by quickly.
Glad you liked the Utah-ish gifts! ha! You better show me a pick of her in that headband. You might need to make the band part smaller though.
Take care girl.

Your so cute Julia...I don't really have anything to count towards, but I'll come up with something and be random...just because I can because it's fun. I can't wait for your baby to come wither...she's gonna be a cutie! I am also jealous that you only have one day of work left.
