Latest six word memoir

Pregnancy for me equals constant sleepiness.

Do you ever feel like you have all of these ideas, goals, desires, etc. and they just seem like daydreams because you never do them? I'm not talking about huge things like traveling to Europe or buying a house. I'm talking about all of the little things that may cross your mind in a given day. Does this happen to anyone other than me? At the end of most days I find myself thinking how cool it would be if I had accomplished just one thing that ran through my head today. For example, I would love to get a jump start on a project I have due in two weeks for my gifted certification. Or, I would really like to learn how to use my sewing machine and sew something beyond a straight line of stitching. OR, I haven't read a book in forever....I love to read...what am I waiting for?

I will tell you. I am waiting to BE AWAKE. Don't get me wrong. I didn't accomplish everything I wanted to every day before I got pregnant. But I at least got laundry done or washed some dishes. Seth was out of town this week and I truly behaved like a male college student. I didn't clean up after myself. I didn't wash one dish. I let laundry pile up so much so that I had to do eight loads today (for two people!). I ate carbs all week because thawing meat seemed too hard. I am seriously becoming a waste of space. How on God's green earth can you be pregnant with a kid already? Not to mention two or three kids already? We want five. I am doomed.

I was sick and so the three hour nap I took yesterday did seem warranted. However, imagine my horror when I wake up from that nap late and Seth's friends that have never been to our house walk in right after I get out of the shower and the wreck and filth I have been living in is suddenly on display. So I am now presented with three things I hate....1) making people wait for me.....2) being late.....3) being forced to allow someone I don't know that well to use a toilet I should have cleaned a long time ago.

At the end of the day, I am honestly too sleepy to be too worried about it. Yet somehow I am awake at 11pm right now writing this blog.

Katie also brought to my attention my insanely weird knack for having fights with things that have no idea I am fighting with them. My dogs, my students, etc. My response? Conflict is a very comical thing when you are the only one who knows about's much more entertaining and much less stressful. What they don't know won't hurt them ;-)


  1. I agree full-heartedly with your response to my comment! Also, compared to the things I'd like to accomplish on any given day, I get basically nothing done. How can so many things sound like a good idea when I wake up in the morning--and then by 5pm seem impossible/pointless/too hard to do???

  2. I hope you start getting less sleepy as you move into the second trimester! But don't feel too bad, everyone I know that's been pregnant says they felt the exact same way in the 1st trimester...I've heard it gets easier!
