For today ... March 2
Outside my window ... cloudy, but not terribly cold. In fact, I can see patches of grass in the yard and it smells almost Spring-y. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking since we're supposed to get snow showers this weekend.
I am thinking ... that I need to slow down now. Actually, my body is outright telling me that I need to slow down. I keep having little contractions here and there (nothing major) and I am always out of breath. Plus, my blood pressure was a little high at my doctor appointment yesterday. Not dangerously high, but higher than normal for me. I need to drink more water and park it a little more often. There is a whole lot of nesting that won't get done before the baby comes, but I feel surprisingly unconcerned about it all.
I am thankful for ... multiple offers of help from my friends. Even if I can't take them up on it right away, I know that there are people out there who are ready to lend me a hand. Or two.
From the kitchen ... hot tea, and lots of it. The kids have passed their head cold on to me and my sinuses are raging.
I am wearing ... my beloved maternity yoga pants (which are distressingly more snug each time I wear them) and a striped shirt.
I am going ... to the doctor every week now. And not too many more places other than that.
I am reading ... "A Fatal Waltz", by Tasha Alexander. This is part of a series of books that involve a Victorian era sleuth named Lady Emily Ashton. So far, it's very entertaining.
I am hoping ... to get Sally's dresser cleaned out and organized this week since she has to share a couple of her drawers with the baby.
I am hearing ... the silence of nap time
On my mind ... I should get a little of that nap time action for myself.
Around the house ... things are in disarray. I just can't seem to keep up the pace these days, but I know it's just a slow season for me. The junk will still be waiting for me after the baby is born.
One of my favorite things ... baby hiccups from the inside.
A picture thought ...
An outtake from the baby pool pictures. This is an "aerial" shot of the belly, and just let me put this out there: I am standing on a completely obscured area rug. Oy.
