Waiting for Christmas

I am not in a very good mood today.

You see, I was never very good at waiting. When I was young, I used to shake the gifts under the Christmas tree and beg to open one early. My mother never relented. I would wake up before 5am on Christmas morning and I always had to wait until at least 6am. Then, we were required to make ourselves presentable for Dad's photo shoot. It was excrutiating. Then, finally, I would be allowed to open my gifts.

As an adult, I have to admit I have not gotten much better. In fact, one could argue that I am actually worse. You see, Nadia and I always open our gifts before Christmas morning. Sometimes we make it to Christmas Eve night, but last year, I think we unwrapped our gifts the day before Christmas Eve.

So, I am really having a hard time with TWW. I have about 9780 minutes left until I will allow myself to test. And even though I could test early, I want to give myself the best chance of getting a conclusive result. Even though I am trying to distract myself, I still find waiting very hard.

Reading other blogs in the sphere does help pass the time, though.

And the irony is that if you ARE pregnant, you'll have another 9 months of waiting ahead of you!! That'll be one gift you won't want to unwrap early!
