My Monday Brain

*This new schedule of school-in-the-afternoons is really working for me. I go back to bed after S leaves. I feel guilty about that so I actually googled "how much sleep do you need in your 3rd trimester?" this morning. Yes, I was looking for justification.

*We have (miraculously) kept the house from looking like a complete Hoarders episode. I mean, it needs some work, but it hasn't been AWFUL. I say "we" because without the girls' help, I fear I would end up on A&E. (Is that the right channel?)

*If you arrive to your prenatal massage 5 minutes late AND the lady has to leave the room for a few minutes to get pillows for you in the middle of the massage.....the massage will still be over exactly at the next hour. Which means you did, indeed, NOT get a 60 minute massage. Sigh. She talked too much also. But I was still thankful for it!

*S bought me a new chair for the beach. It's a lounger with a footrest. It's actually patio furniture but it worked so nicely at the beach. It will work nicely when I am not pregnant too, but instead nursing a baby at the beach. It was SO NICE to be back at the beach!! And apparently several thousand people agreed with us yesterday. Crowded!

*Keeping up with a 12 year old is a full-time job. Wanting someone to be responsible and independent in many areas is hard work for the parents!

*We own too many books.

*I don't want to go grocery shopping anymore.

*The kitchen needs a lot of work. Why must the bottom cabinets be so...low? (While my belly is so...big?)

*I have so many things I want to get done. My brain is going 90 miles an hour all the time.

*My motivation does not match my brain.

Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. Hang in there. You will soon be holding your little one.

  2. So is your sleep justified or NOT.. AM I the ONLY one wondering?????

  3. "My motivation does not match my brain." <- story of my life. ;) also, i remember bending over being quite the challenge while pregnant. low cabinets would be an issue, for sure. the bubble in the middle - combined with all the blood in my body - rushing to my eyeballs. ha! let me know if there is anything i can do to help. ((hugs))

  4. Carrie--when you look on online pregnancy boards full of other pregnant women, then yes!!!! They say get all the rest you can. Since they are pregnant, clearly these are the experts I choose to listen to!

    H-mama--uh...come organize my kitchen? Jk--it's too horrible.

  5. I sent two of my kids to do the grocery shopping this week. They did a great job and I was sooo happy not to have to go. Hang in there you are almost at the end of the race. I remember needing a lot of sleep when I was pregnant. Listen to your body and don't feel guilty:)


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
