At 4:30PM EST today, I officially get my husband back from his summer-long Bar hibernation. We're going to his law-school friend's apartment for dinner (with the Schmoop) to celebrate the end of the exam. Of course, we're not out of the woods until November, when the results come in, but until then, we're going to have faith that he passed, and that we never have to go through this again! Thanks to all of you who prayed and sent good vibes!
On an even brighter/sunnier note, our vacation is only 10 days away! We are SO excited to get out of NYC and have some summer fun in the Caribbean. We're going to an all-inclusive resort that also provides a children's camp, in case the Schmoop is interested (we highly doubt it). Because everything is paid for (thanks to creative accounting and a generous contribution), we don't even need to take that much cash, except to tip the housekeeping staff. Woo hoo! Now I just need to buckle down and buy a maternity swimsuit, something I was able to avoid during my last pregnancy, since I was still in my first trimester all summer.
Against my better judgment, I'm considering a bikini wax in preparation for the vacation. I know it won't be pleasant, but I'm in no mood to do my own grooming right now. I am hoping to make an appointment with a neighborhood mom who's an aesthetician at a downtown spa. Wish me luck!
