It will come as no surprise to those who know my routines that I am writing this post from Panera Bread (at Clybourn & Southport), enjoying my "last supper" of sorts (bacon turkey bravo, chicken noodle soup & an apple... yum!). Yes, it is only 2:30pm, but because I'll need to really manage my blood sugars tonight, anything I eat after 5pm will need to be basic and bland - leaving no room for error in counting carbohydrates. Since this is also my "2nd office" - a place where I've spent a lot of time over the past few years/months.... I think the familiar setting and people are providing me some comfort as any anxiousness builds up about tomorrow.
To be fair, Rye & I did go out for a real "Last Supper" last night - a beautiful, cool evening of outdoor dining at our local pub, Brownstone, where we enjoyed a $2 burger/fries and $5 salad. We had a great time sharing what we're most excited about (with only a few tears from me) and chatting about last minute details for the big day/weekend.
How fun (albeit different) it will be to soon enjoy these places with our newest family member.
