I have to admit that I am totally oblivious to a lot of what is going on in the world around me right now. I realized this morning – oh, yeah. We are electing a governor and a senator in a few weeks. Oh, it is going to be October on Sunday. Oh, we need to get our fall and winter clothes out of the basement. You know. Ordinary stuff.
Instead I’ve been thinking about… What should I put on the baby for her picture? Where are we going to put her swing? Do I have the infant CPR/choking info posted on both floors of the house? What will fit me to wear home from the hospital? What will David eat while I’m in the hospital? I’m kind of oblivious to everything else.
However, I am not oblivious to the fact that the Detroit Tigers are in the playoffs for the first time in 19 years. Yes, that is half of my life. There is no longer-suffering fan than my mom who watches or listens to most of their games every year, including the miserable years they’ve had recently. Since we don’t have cable, we went out and bought a nice antenna so we can get FOX on the TV while she is here helping out after Peanut arrives. I mean, yes, a granddaughter is important, but waiting for Peanut to be born has only been half the time we’ve been waiting for the Tigers to get back in the playoffs.
I just realized that even this topic that is not about the baby still comes back to the baby. 🙂
