280 days. That’s where it all began, with 280 days we thought would just be average. And now? Today marks 101 days ’til Baby K is scheduled to make an appearance–179 days into the gig and winding down to double digits in a mere 26ish hours. Crazy how time flies? I think so.
Like other monumental things in life: your wedding day, graduation, moving day, the start of a new job, that dream vacation, this feels utterly and completely worthy of a countdown. (You’ve probably noticed the little ticker in my sidebar by now:) And why not? When the anticipation of something is SO great, counting down the days (or sleeps) gives us the opportunity to feel like active participants in the process while we’re waiting.
Yesterday, I was pondering the 102 days we had to go and decided to put myself up to a little challenge. Of all of the seasons in my life thus far, this is certainly one of them I want to capture well. As such, I’m committing to these last 100 days of pregnancy with a blog post–one for each day until the little one gets here. Now, a little fine print. Baby might not quite be here in 100 days, or he or she might come a little early. I’d like to go so far as to think I can blog in labor, but only time will tell. And every post might have some aspect of baby woven into it, but I’d also like to think I’ll have more to say about other things between now and then, too. Soooooo, here’s the deal. 100 days give or take (starting tomorrow), and 100 posts. Think I can do it? Will you help me?
If you love something here in the next 100 days, I’d love to know about it. And if you’d like to hear about a specific topic, please make me aware of that as well. Critiques? Go for it. Yep, I’m more emotionally charged as of late, but I’d like to consider this time as a fine-tuning, honing-in and defining sort of season for good old mollymadonna.com, and I’d love your help. Please be honest.
K. Here’s to this next challenge, and hopefully, to a great adventure in writing and blogging. More tomorrow, because I promised…
For today: find the thing in your life at this moment that deserves a countdown–even if it’s an upcoming date night or your favorite author’s next release. And let me know what you’re counting down to. We’ll do this together!
