Come on

I think of myself as a nice person. A person who doesn't have unrealistic expectations. I'm reasonable. I don't just go around freaking out on people when things don't go my way. But sometimes I think if I was more inclined to be that way, dumb things wouldn't keep happening to me.

When I was expecting Miss A we ordered her bedroom furniture in what I thought was plenty of time. Apparently, I should have allowed more time. I was told to expect it would be a much longer wait than I'd originally thought. So, I was stressed until the furniture finally came. I mean, of course we would have been okay if it didn't but being the planner - anal retentive person that I am, I just wanted to have her room all set up.

As I mentioned in my last post, we really don't have anything much to do this time. Except... I ordered a chair. A glorious chair. The kind of chair that is going to make many sleepless nights much more bearable. I expect to be spending A LOT of time in this chair. I ordered it in the middle of April. That should have allowed an ample amount of time for it to arrive before July, don't you think? But no.

I received a phone call yesterday telling me that they are estimating it will be here at the END of July. Much later than I'd originally been told. I was so disappointed and frustrated that it came across rather clearly to this nice woman I'd been dealing with. It totally isn't her fault. It is a problem with the manufacturers of the chair. Still, that doesn't make it any less annoying. So it's likely not going to arrive before the baby comes. I know it will get here eventually but it just makes me sad. It's the ONE THING I wanted to have before the baby arrives.

Who knows, maybe a miracle with happen and it will still get here on time. We'll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, here is a new profile picture. The other one was terribly old...

That is frustrating. Did you order the foot rest as well?
Your new profile pic is terribly cute!

Absolutely. That is the whole point of the chair. It reclines. I can put my feet up and then I can rock that way as well.

Grrrr! I think two and a half months is PLENTY of time to be able to come up with a chair already!
And I totally noticed the new profile pic before I even scrolled down to the larger one in the post! BEAUTIFUL!

I'm really sorry :( That is a bummer. I love the new pic.

Oh, that IS frustrating. I hope it arrives sooner, but I feel your pain. A good rocking chair is an essential part of maintaining your sanity in newbabyland.

First - love your new picture. Both of you are gorgeous, as usual.

Second - July?! Jeez. You do not need stress right now and I'm sorry that something that was supposed to be fun and happy got screwed up. Maybe it will still work out.
