I Slept 14 Hours Last Night.


Ah, welcome to the third trimester!! I got home yesterday evening at around 6:00 pm, sat to watch Simpsons with Joe, and promptly fell asleep. At about 8:30, I moved to the bed, intending to keep Joe company as he played on the computer across the room... but no. I was asleep again in minutes and didn't fully wake up again (not counting the bathroom wake-ups) until my alarm went off at 8:30 this morning. Crazy. And it felt NECESSARY.

I did feel a bit bad abandoning Joe on a weekend night... leaving him to eat pizza and play video games all night with no wife to go out and do fun stuff with.


And on a related pregnancy note, I went to the bathroom EIGHT times yesterday. At least. And all of them were pretty much urgently needed. What am I in for????

All worth it, though. This kid is gonna be GREAT!


And another random side note, non-pregnancy related: I am SO happy to have my sis Beckie living so close to me. Really... and not just because I just texted her to buy me some skim milk on her way home from Mac Grill tonight, though that IS nice and handy...
No, I am thrilled because she and I love so many of the same things... and she makes me laugh... and it is like having a built-in best friend just blocks away-- something I've missed since Utah. (Of course Joe counts, but I'm talking GIRL friend. Totally different.) I hope Beckie doesn't feel smothered or worn out by my calls and invites since she's been here... Like I said, I'm just so excited. :)

  2. Aw, sometimes I wish I were up in St.Louis just so that I can hang out with you more. I love being able to brag about all my older siblings and how they spoil me with knowledge and (in beckie's case) materialistic things.

    I'm really looking forward to going to St.Louis next week! That'll be the silver lining in my very dismal cloud of school. Love ya!
