I'm not talking about library books. I'm talking about our little bundle of joy, originally due to enter the world on December 17th. I started maternity leave on December 1st, assuming I would have a solid two weeks to chill out. Turns out I've had a month-long vacation!

As I write this blog entry, I am five days past my due date. As you read this blog entry, depending on when she arrives, I may have already made the transformation from Hot Sweaty Mama-To-Be to actual Hot Sweaty Mama!

When I was a senior at Yale back in 1994, one of my graduation requirements was to write a thesis to support my combined Sociology/Psychology degree. I decided to focus on something very close to my heart - being a woman athlete.

The time has come. We need to get serious about a name for our girl. This is incredibly important stuff. Once this decision is made, it cannot be undone. This is the word she will probably hear more than any other word for the rest of her life. It has to fit her. It has to be perfect.

On what I considered to be my first day of maternity leave, I accomplished the following:
- 10:30AM: 1 hour bath
- 1PM: 1.5 hour nap
- Throughout the day: Read a new book and almost finished it, read the entire newspaper, did some online shopping, played around with my new iPhone, did the crossword, etc.
- Dinner: Watched tv while Tim cooked
In other words, it was awesome!
