Today is Week 36 which means we can go into labor at any time. To really emphasize this point, our friends K&J, who are pregnant with twins of their own (boys), had their C-section on Saturday. K is 10 days behind Nightingale in terms of due dates and such. But she is also my age which mean the babies were always at a higher risk and as such, probably opted to make their appearance sooner than later.
The good news is that we do have the nursery set up and more or less have everything else more or less set up. The bad news is we still haven't figured out what we are going to do for childcare when we go back to work. And the longer we hold off delivering the children, the later in the year NG has to go back to work.
The sink in our laundry room was starting to fall apart. That is to say, more correctly, the vanity that holds the sink was starting to fall apart. Too many sink overflows caused the pressboard to weaken.
Thoughts on the Bears-49ers game
Many are saying that the turning point was when 49ers defensive tackle Quinton Dial launched on Cutler late in the first half, drilling the Bears quarterback in the sternum. Cutler led the Bears back from a 17-0 deficit after that. I think the turning point involved two other plays. First, Jim Harbaugh challenged a catch by M Bennett and though he won the challenge, it was more a case of the officials being too picky.
Second, I'm going off memory here and I'll have to see if I can verify it but at the end of the first half, the 49ers had the ball with less than a minute to go. They had a lot of field to cover. Yes your team could get into field goal range or even against these bears, score another touchdown. But with as little time as was left on the clock and the fact that you have an entire second half still to play, Up 17 to 7, it probably makes more sense to go into the locker room and regroup.
