29+ weeks preggo.
having hot flashes 24/7.
sleeping in the basement.
extremely tired… mostly due to a low iron count.
cutting myself a TON of slack.
grateful for my mother’s swimming pool.
trying not to feel too sad that the summer is almost over.
in desperate need of a way to harness more energy.
happy that the kitchen is clean…at this moment.
proud of the kids and their fearlessness in the water.
disappointed that I haven’t blogged about all of our summer adventures…yet.
baking way too much.
amazed at how much sunscreen we go through (already on our third bottle).
listening to #4 sing “Mamma Mia” as if someone hit the “continuous replay button” on her.
content with my 60% clean house.
excited about using my new “home management” binder in September.
loving the selection at the farmer’s market: yellow watermelon, golden raspberries, sweet peaches.
watching my grandfather’s expressions and gestures very closely and listening to his words as if I could record them permanently in my brain.
excited when I think about all our pictures we have taken this summer and the stories I have recorded…can’t wait to turn it into something good.
dreading back-to-school shopping.
bored of wearing a rotation of 3 summer dresses and 5 tops with 2 pairs of leggings.
being kept awake during the night for hours at a time by violent kicks to the groin and the ribs.
enjoying watching my kids play together and take care of each other this summer.
grateful for Ever-Patient who has taken over all of the chores that involve bending over.
craving red meat.
