Coming down the home stretch

Well, my little spreadsheet says that I have a week left before I can wean and coast to 1 year (12/12) with my freezer stash.

I'm having a little bit of guilt because I'm weaning at the start of cold season. But I'm going to make my goal and be done with it. I've not been able to do my job 100% because of pumping (I can't support 8 hours testing shifts with only short 10 min breaks) and I have two launches coming up that I have support with 12 hours shifts (one in Jan, the other in April).

This weekend DH was cleaning out Henry's closet and putting a bunch of stuff into storage for the next kiddo. He pulled out the empty PISA box and put it by my desk. It is so hard to believe that I'm almost done...

I've dropped to 3x a day and will stay there until next Tuesday (*the* day according to my spreadsheet). After that I'll go to 2x a day for a week and then 1x a day. Hopefully I can pack up the pump shortly after his birthday.

I know it's hard to get past the guilt, but at the moments that you do, don't you just feel giddy? It has to be such an awesome feeling to know that you will not be a slave to a machine much longer!!

Wow, congrats on being almost there! You've done a brilliant job and you're going to have so much fun being free!
There can't be many people out there who have rocket launches as one of the reasons they need to HUTH ;-)
