Awfully quiet in here this morning... is everyone off in labor?
I'm procrastinating and find it much harder to do without someone to talk to. I really don't want to clean off my desk and do 18 mos worth of filing today. Someone save me?!
I'm sitting on my couch, totally lounging in a "bad for baby" position but I don't care. I think my kid finally fell asleep after fighting his nap for 45 minutes. I should be doing things - cleaning our bedroom, finishing up a baby blanket I'm knitting for the New Guy, picking up the rest of the apt, working on a freelance project, listening to hypnobabies (have kind of given up on this)...at the very least, updating my blog or something...but I am just sitting here, eating my third bowl of my impulse-bought coca krispies cereal. I am tired. If I had cable tv, I would totally watch something really stupid right now, just because.
I keep thinking about Cristeen mentioned she has 3 freezers full of frozen meals ready to go PP, and I feel like the laziest person on earth.
LOL!! No, no, no. I have 3 freezers full of food. Not meals.
1 freezer has meals - although I only made a few of them. A lot of them are things like dim sum left from my shower, fresh pasta from TJs, and gifts from friends. One freezer is full of ingredients (raw meat, fruit frozen last summer, stock, ice). The third is the one on the fridge, and it mostly has ice cream. My big project last week was to buy 8 lbs of chuck roast, cube it and re-freeze it in 2 lb bags. Paired with the 1.5 lb bags of pureed tomatoes from last summer, the jars of chili spices I assembled last week, and the bags of beans I cooked and froze last week, it's a ready-to-simmer chili package.
My DH can cook eggs and pasta reliably. Anything more than that he needs his hand held.
LMH - I know, it's gorgeous out, and all I want to do is sleep. Although it's looking like my hives are a heat reaction, which looking at the weather forecast means I'm going to be covered in them until baby arrives. They now cover my face. I'm really glad we already did pregnancy photos, or I'd be pissed.
I'm here too. Decidedly not in labor. Just trying to get rid of my darn cold. I am also in the camp of staring down the messy house and not being able to motivate. Plus work is driving me insane. I'm working from home but it seems like everyone has suddenly entered panic mode - realizing I'm actually going on leave. So they are asking me for a million things. I am exhausted and REALLY grouchy. Dropping F-bombs left and right. I think this baby is like, "ummm... mommy seems a bit stressed, maybe I'll give her some time to cool off before i make any attempts at entering the real world." smart kiddo.
I wish this was me.
I've had...let's not talk about it. I'll confess to my nightly bowl of ice cream, though. It's the only thing that even remotely staves off the middle of the night heartburn.
Watermelon is a FAR healthier choice. I wouldn't feel guilty over that one at all. Unless i didn't share with DH.
I've actually been eating a lot of watermelon the last few weeks. It's the only thing that satiates my thirst lately. I don't normally really care for watermelon at all, but I've gone through 4 in 2 weeks, and I have 2 more sitting here to be chopped up.
When I went to Target the other day I bought the biggest bag of peanut M&Ms they had. It's something like 46 oz. Another something I'm not all that crazy about when I'm not pg.
I've been eating a ton of watermelon here, too. I always have one (or at least some of one!) waiting to be cut up. I need to go back to the store today I think and buy more coffee and watermelon. And cantaloup. And strawberries.
honestly, all I want to eat is fruit, bread, cheese and kombucha.
