I've been MIA lately. Haven't read any of my regular blogs, haven't posted in my blog. Sorry... I'll try to catch up soon!
My head hurts. My feet hurt. My back hurts. And not all of it is the pregnancy. :)
My head hurts because I'm not drinking enough water. My feet hurt because I have a cut on the bottom of one of them. So I guess it is really just that my foot hurts, not my feet. My back hurts because my front side is getting bigger than my back side (amazing, I know!) and throwing everything out of whack.
It seems as though it has been busy around here, yet I have nothing new to write about. Ethan is in preschool--- and that has been interesting. He informed me this morning that he is bored at preschool because he already knows the stuff they are learning. I can't believe the complaining has started this early! I was hoping for a child who enjoyed learning and school as much as his mommy. Instead, he seems to take after his daddy--- wanting to sleep instead of go to school, and like his Uncle Jon--- bored with school. Sigh.
Little House on the Prairie is on--- Michael Landon's hair! Did you ever take a look at it? Dark, unruly, curly, wild.... on TV it is acceptable--- but if I walked out of my house looking like that, I'd be covering my head with a hat. Why is it that men can get away with so much more fashion and looks wise? Like our worship leader at church--- he shows up with bed head--- and it looks fine! If I show up with bed head, I look like rats made homes in my hair overnight. (Of course, that could be because Cici nuzzles my hair all night long and kneads it with her claws). Aaron can pull on a t shirt that is rumpled and walk out of the house in it. If I do that, I KNOW that other women are going to look at me and think "Don't you have an iron?"
My couch smells funny. I wonder if it is because of my super smeller. Or does it always smell funny?
My nephews are being too quiet downstairs.
I want chips and dip.
I just felt the baby wiggle again. Wasn't sure if it was gas or what last week when I first felt it--- but in the past day or so, I've felt things more clearly. Ultrasound on the 26th to see if there are any kidneys in there. Until then, I feel strangely detached. I put the crib together yesterday. Aaron asked if I was ok with it. It took me a while to answer, but I finally said, "Sure." I am the one who dismantled the crib only days after I delivered Henry. Cried the entire time. Dragged it out into the hallway all by myself.
Aaron says he thinks I'm bigger now than I ever was with Henry. If I have amniotic fluid this time, that would make sense. So keep your fingers crossed.
Blah. Off to drink some water!
