Hey! It’s 9:30 and I’m posting! I told you I would do this sooner in the day!
I’m sure we all remember how couple of days ago I wrote about how excited I was to be be able to enjoy a warm, sunny day with my family, wearing my flip flops. It was as though we were able to see that, indeed, there was a light at the end of tunnel of a brutal winter.
Yeah, well, that was one day a few days ago. Cause it’s going to drop into the teens during the night, and there are rumors of snow on Thursday. A possibility. Just like last year, it was warm and sunny on a Sunday in early February, and it fucking snowed the following Tuesday. Weather-wise, Texas is schizophrenic. It doesn’t know which way is up.
It’s cold. The wind is blowing like crazy outside.
I’m okay, though. This morning after I dropped Deven off at school, I came home and moved my DVD player into my room, and laid in bed and watched Little Miss Sunshine. These days, there is such an appeal to lay in bed and watch movies. Movies that I have seen a million times over. There is so much comfort in laying my bed, with my comforter and pillows, and just vegging out with the tv.
I know why. When Deven was born, that’s all I did for months when I was up all night with him. We would watch tv shows or movies in my bed while I nursed him or snuggled him. I lived in my room. Maybe that’s what I am preparing for; I’m preparing to be up all night with a newborn.
Or maybe I’m just exhausted because I’m 30 weeks pregnant, and I just want to relax as much as possible. I don’t sleep well at night, and so I try to catch a wink or two (or seventy) whenever I can. It also works great for nap time with Deven! Today at nap time, I told him we were going to watch Yo! Gabba Gabba in mommy’s bed, and he loved it. He still napped! He totally got that we were going to watch a movie and go to sleep.
I’m definitely feeling like we’re reaching the home stretch of this pregnancy. I have 2 1/2 months! I want to rest and relax as much as possible, but I am feeling the urgency of getting everything done as well. It’s time to tour the hospital, get the room ready, hire a doula, wash and organize the baby’s clothes, clean out the garage! The list goes on and on, and now would be the best time to take care of it. Knowing Vance, he’s going to try his hardest to put everything off until the last second, but I am not going to be able to do much for much longer.
But for now, I’m heading to bed.
