The pregnancy induced insanity
including but not limited to:
inability to focus
poor decision making skills
and lapses in judgement
like this evening, when I opened my microwave to find a bowl of melted butter, now hardened over. the butter that should have gone into the frosting that went on the cake that we served to our company last night.
or last week, when we tried to go to the pool but had to turn around three, yes three, times to retrieve necessary items that I had forgotten. and then got to the pool only to realize I didn't have my cell phone.
That covers inability to focus and forgetfulness.
But what about poor decision making skills and lapses in judgement?
how about last week when Paul and I suddenly decided to stop at Petsmart on our way home from a date night - and decided to buy a pet, right then and there, to take home and surprise the kids? And I got my heart set on a RAT (of all things). A RAT. Until I saw that long, pink, thick, wiry tail. Then it was all over - at least for the rat. Luckily Paul came to his senses and we did not buy a pet that night - although he practically had to drag me out of the store. The next morning the first emotion I experienced upon waking was immense relief that there were no rodents scampering about in my kids bedroom.
Like I said...Temporary Insanity.
Lets hope the clumsiness is temporary too. I've had 3 bad falls in the last few weeks (the stairs, the shower, and...the laundry room? At least it hasn't happened at the gym...yet. Cross your fingers). Not to worry though - it is VERY apparent to me that this baby is alive and well.
The tiredness, laziness, and lack of motivation however might be around for more than the next 8 weeks.
Last week all we did was...
Have some fun with photo booth,
which the kids thought was absolutely hilarious,
Got my haircut
started the project of re-upholstering my glider (thanks to my girl, Elise!)
and, the highlight of the week,
got a steal of a deal on this gigantic love sac
which has provided hours of entertainment for the kids and is where you can find me most of the time. Including the middle of the night. It's back and forth between my bed and the love sac, trying to get some sleep and minimize the pain I am feeling everywhere now. That too is temporary. But in 8 weeks I get to trade it for new aches and pains : )
Is there no end in sight???
To this summer or this pregnancy?
They are both just temporary.
2 1/2 weeks until school starts
8 (and 1/2 if I'm honest) until my due date
Pretty much feels like no end in sight.
And yet, with as much free time as we had on our hands last week (compared to the past couple jam-packed months of summer) I did not
clean my house
set foot in the gym.
