My love barometer for the past 7 or 8 years has been based on my immediate feelings of Billy Joel songs. His music was always a cornerstone from my all time favorite artists until I associated it with a few year love affair gone wrong. Sure it led to some of the highest natural feelings during my possession of this thing called a life. Unfortunately a bad love will be subject to Newton's Laws.
I am not blaming anyone for what happened. Sometimes the forbidden will steal a part of you even if you contain the strength to resist.
So, Billy Joel, my unborn daughter gets a kick- pun intended- out of your music. No longer do I despise your work due to the negative association drawn from that emotional corpse that was in tow.
Which song does she like?
I say she likes the song but truth be told, she gets active to the music. This could be her begging for peace and quiet. We won't know until she gets out and can verbalize, at least with body language, her opinion of the said piece.
The Yukester's mother is visiting from Japan to witness her first grandchild in the flesh. We will have three generations of the clan under one roof. Looks like 500 years of samurai blood will be continued with an Irish kick.
The fact that two people are about to experience the best moments in their live's is out there. We have been waiting so long for our baby girl that each day seems to lengthen in hours. Maybe this is life's way of slowing things down as prior to the engagement of legacy procurement the days were but a blur. It was great but now that g word does it no justice.
Even clothes shopping for the little girl is entertaining. Heck, you would be lucky to get me in a store, much less one without internal combustion engines attached to two wheels.
Depending on how Mona does on the birthing finale will decide if she gets a sibling. Should she pull off the miracle natural birth then we will try for baby numero dos as soon as it is safe. With the Yukester's age we are being cautious even if our first attempt has been nothing but seamless and healthy.
Estimated birth date is less than 48 hours away and it is looking as if she will be a little late. Ironic as I am like a Swiss watch with timing. Due to the Yukester's age the doctor is recommending an induction in the 40th week to avoid complications.
Tomorrow evening will be another appointment to plan the course of action.
This kid will have an amazing life. Showered in love.
