I'm huge and uncomfortable and anemic and too old to be doing this and I don't think the veins in my legs will ever be the same.....among other things.
I'm really trying to LiveStrong and everything, and I know I need to somehow enjoy this & embrace the miracle of this beautiful time in my life........blah, blah, blah, especially since this is my last one & all......
But really? Stop & smell the roses when your ankles are as big as your calves???
The truth is, I am so, so, so excited for this baby girl, but this has been a rather tough pregnancy. I've never been so tired & useless in my 3rd trimester like this.
And it's freaking me out! But not in a hyper way. In a slo-mo kind of way.
I had big plans for home organization & decor updating & photo projects.......... & decorating her nursery! Still not done!
But instead I'm watching the last few weeks of semi-productivity slip through my fingers as I nap on the couch!
Because I've had enough babies to remember how it's after you have the baby that you really get absolutely nothing done.
I've always associated productivity with happiness & satisfaction, so this is hard for me. My best days are when I've knocked a bunch of things off my to-do list.
I need to somehow make peace with non-productivity. Embrace it. Find joy in unfinished projects. Smile at piles of stinky laundry and walk on by. Hmmmmm.......
I wonder if you can feed a baby & work on the computer at the same time?..........
And since I can't post without a picture, here's a random one.
Max sitting for me while I do lighting test-shots, finishing up his daily after-school-bowl-of-icecream.
