This is not an announcement. I just was reading an FB thread that made me think about it.
The most productive days of my life are probably the ten days between confirming a pregnancy and the onset of a year of incapacitation. All the things that have been nagging at me get done immediately in a frenzy of desperate activity as I wait for the other shoe to drop. It all comes to a sudden stop on that dreadful morning when I finally wake up with a queasy stomach.
