Peeling away

Yesterday I sat on the couch and peeled three heads of garlic. The day before, I peeled one and a half. Focusing on a simple task that requires little brainpower helps ease the restlessness.


On top of that, it feels as though Little Man has grown or shifted in such a way that he’s pressing down on my sciatic nerve. So yesterday I had pain radiating from just above my right glute down to my lower thigh.

Some have said that such pain and pressure signal that labor is not far away. I say, “WHATEVS.” I’m not playing into any more guessing games revolving around “When will Minal go into labor?”

In the next few days, I will simply wrap up my remaining projects at work and see whether there’s any more unpeeled garlic hiding around the house.
