Josiah's Due Date

Monday, February 21, 2011

Today, we woke up to quite a bit of snow and I made the decision to work from home, just as my boss had told me she would be doing the previous night. There was some trepidation in making the decision, but we have been told so many times now that the lay off decisions have already been made that I really don't think my choice to work from home today will have any bearing on the decision.

It felt right to stay home today, with Isaac and with Tony also working from home. Today was Josiah's estimated due date.

I just can't even imagine what would have all transpired in these last few months or how stressed out I would have been in hearing about the upcoming layoffs. Now that we have Baby Love, I also can't imagine not being at this point in my pregnancy expecting another son.

There has certainly been sadness, but not to the depth that I prepared for. Just a few minutes of tears and wistfulness. That seems to make me all the more upset, that I'm not more hurt by the monumental loss we suffered. My Mom sent the most beautiful bouquet and that certainly sent me over the edge.
