I know I got into some habits, while waiting for Asher to get here, how about you guys? 

 

things I need to stop doing;

watching Scrubs on Netflix late into the night

eating crap foods

neglecting housework

 

things I'm having a hard time resisting;

night drives- I don't want the baby to get used to falling asleep/sleeping in the car

I guess quantity of food-input, although I guess hunger/thirst sorta continues with good reason while breastfeeding!

 

And #2 is having the hubs do a bunch of stuff around the house cuz I was too big and preg-tastic, now I don't really have an excuse...

My habit is totally weird:  I can't stop cleaning.  My brain is set on "nesting" and I can't make it stop.  

I'm kind of still eating more than I would usually but I lost a ton of weight (like down to underweight) after my first was born so I don't feel too bad about having a milkshake or cookies every day this time.  

 

 


ahhh to be able to think well enough to create a clever signature.sleeping.gif someday i will have enough sleep to accomplish this task...

I actually thought I was supposed to be super productive right now... and was totally beating myself up over those crumbs (and all the career-related work I am not yet doing).

I actually started doing laundry today....Yay for being productive! haha it's a good thing I decided to cloth diaper, because otherwise I'm pretty sure if I didn't need to wash those, I wouldn't be washing ANYTHING

I know! I just can't relax and rest unless it's clean though!
