The Mondays

Sonoma, 2009

I will not be supping pinot noir and checking out this view today.

When you're self-employed, harnessing the power of a Monday is really key. The "school day" feeling gives me a burst of productivity (and I find that if I don't run with it, the whole week is a bit off.)

So I have a little list of tasks to accomplish in the city and a giant stack of paperwork to plough through before I can head out and enjoy the sunshine.

Among my tasks? Ask my doctor about childbirth classes. I'd love to take the ones at Caribou Baby in Williamsburg, as I think it would be a great way to begin to meet new local parents and establish a community here. But I wonder if there's any disadvantage to skipping the classes my hospital suggests. I'm also a tad worried that taking them at Caribou will make me anxious over my hospital choice (even though I know I wouldn't feel comfortable with a home birth for my first.) I'd love to have a natural childbirth, but I'd also like to take classes that allow for the possibility of an epidural (or a C-section, if it's medically necessary) so I am not blindsided if that's what's in store for me.
