Birthing tub is in da house.  Well, not exactly IN the house as much as in the back yard where we are going to thoroughly hose off and sanitize the pool before bringing it in.  This morning I drove a huge pickup truck with that enormous tub back from our friend’s place in Amherst and as I pulled away I almost started crying.

This is it!  We are in!  The final moments of this life are quickly vanishing and we are finally nearly fully ready for the event that will consume some day soon.  The enormity of what is to come hit me hard as I rattled down the road with the tub blocking my rear-view mirror.  

The sunflower has not bloomed, but it is getting close.  Crazy rains today and this weekend fed it well.
