3 Days Overdue!

It's been a long time since my last blog post, and I have been patiently awaiting the arrival of my little man.  The nursery still has a few details: my two small shelves that Bradley painted need to be hung, and I was still working on some artwork.  As you can see, I am also still waiting on the alterations man to finish my cushion cover.  I opted to have this made because it had piping and a zipper which seemed too complicated for my ever changing attention span, not to mention the fact that I was down to my last 2 yards of fabric and can't afford any mistakes.

I received the ottoman from Tazi Designs, and it stunk so bad!  We had to put it upstairs in an unused area of the house for a couple of weeks.  We brought it back down today, and no more smell.  It smelled like it had been sitting in a big pile of manure when we received it.  It is all handmade in a village somewhere in Morocco.  Who knows?  It is made of leather and I used some of my Coach leather conditioner to clean it off.  Then I sprayed the surface with a thin layer of lysol.  I can only hope it is "clean" now.

As for this blog post's title, yes I am 3 days overdue.  It's my fault for wishing this pregnancy would last as long as possible as soon as I found out I was pregnant.  I had a span of dates from my 3 separate doctors.  Sept 1-2 from my fertility doctor, August 31st from my OB, and August 30th from the perinatologist.  I was hoping for September 2nd, and it's now the 3rd.  I haven't had any more contractions either.  An induction is scheduled for Wednesday if he doesn't decide to come out before then!
