Well.....

I owe you all a humongous apology for getting you all excited and worked up about my happy thing and then leaving you hanging in utter suspense for weeks on end.

My happy thing was that my disc drive, which I've been desperate for, was fixed by following my brilliant friend Nelda's advice to plug it into its own power source. I was elated. And I made it through one senior pictures disc-making before it started freezing up my computer. So now I'm frustrated again. Pro*Byte can't even figure out what's wrong. I have some other things to try before I give up and bash the thing with a sledge hammer. If you're one of the many waiting for pictures from me I apologize profusely.

On another note --
aHHH. Pregnancy. I knew it stunk, but I forgot how bad. I am an avid promoter of adoption for many reasons. Pregnancy is one of them. (Trust me - I'm not making light of people whose deepest desire is to bear their own child. It is a blessing for which I am miserably and nauseatingly thankful.)

I feel like I'm dragging myself around from room to room, then I wander around the room trying to figure out what in the world I'm doing there and where to start! I'm not complaining or asking for any type of sympathy, mind you. Just talking girl talk. Telling you where I am.

Thankfully, so far this time pregnancy has hit me more in the tired category instead of the tears category. But then again, maybe I'd rather be busy and sobbing than happy and sleeping. Huh. Now THAT sentence didn't make a lick of sense. I'm literally sitting here laughing out loud at myself. That's not exactly how I meant it to sound.

I just miss being productive! I try to get at least one or two big projects done a day ("big" meaning that it is on my driving-me-crazy-because-it's-not-done list). But other than that it honestly sorta feels like I take one step forward, ten steps back. Oh well. Productivity will return in about 3 months. And then....

LET THE NESTING BEGIN!

I just love nesting. It's like a giant race to your due date and you have just so many months to get your entire life organized before the screaming, pooping lizard pops into your world and deprives you of nutrition and sleep while bringing utter joy and satisfaction.

I think late pregnancy might be my most productive times of my whole life. I've had.....well....3....of them. (Doesn't sound like I lead a very productive live, huh?) That's why I have to keep having a baby every two or three years - to keep this place reasonably orgainzed! I remember with one baby when my nesting whirlwind reached and linen closet, I didn't stop at decluttering and organizing it. I labeled the shelves..."King sheets" "Table cloths" "Napkins" "Pillow Cases"
Trust me, it was out of control. But really cool, nonetheless.

The only kind of nesting I'm doing right now is scooping the laundry into one big giant nest on the floor so that I can drag my listless frame into bed.

So for now, I'll get back to my anti-nausea Ginger Ale guzzling and leave you to ponder these deep and glorious thoughts.

Just wanted you to know in case it makes you feel better. I have some of your same feelings and I haven't been pregnant for 30 years.

Heehee! Screaming, pooping lizard?! That's too funny! A certain man I know very well ;o) calls that the pet rock stage.

I can't WAIT to be productive again. (or was I ever to begin with?)
Carrie said…
AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You have screaming, pooping lizards??!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I had skinny, wriggling tadpoles!

Shoot! I can't even tell you how many times I go into a room and can't remember why I'm there. I'm not pregnant, so what does that REALLY mean?

So you're a couple steps ahead of me. I've only been productive TWICE in my life. I feel kind of bad for Robert.

I, too, loved that energy surge of the 3rd trimester!! Enjoy this season too...rest, rest, rest...definitely the harder lesson, eh?
I don't know how you can MISS being productive when you seem to be EXTREMELY productive!

Congrats on the new one.

Oh Sarah...I've never written on your blog but let me tell you that if "laughter does good like a medicine"...I've just overdosed!!! And it feels so good. My oh my, I haven't laughed so hard in a long time, hopefully, it's laughing with you and not at your expense. Anyhow, congratulations!!! Now to be serious....may I have your email address...
So good too see you pop your head in here to my blog!

My email is sarahmfry@hotmail.com. I think I have your husband's email. If I do, I'll send it there too in case you don't see this.

Give Melodie a big giant hug for me when you get there.

Is this the Nelda I used to know??? Red hair, donator of many computer games to the Peak family, taught me how to make boxes out of wallpaper? (Keep wishing I remembered how to do that.) If so, tell her I said hi. :-)
On another note...Screaming, pooping lizards. Yeah...if I was starting to even THINK about having children, well... LOL

Hey, you're welcome to give us a sneak peek at the pictures on here, girl! They've disappeared. Thanks so much for doing that today!

You are a trip! I've decide I don't like being pregnant during the holidays because of the tired thing too. I'm still waiting for the surge of energy to come and I only have about 8 more weeks until my pooping lizard pops out. After doing the Kidz Christmas Program at our church I had to drag myself out of bed to decorate, shop, wrap, and bake, all the while, reminding myself that Christmas IS my favorite holiday! So, just remember you're not alone ~ 2000 miles away one of you kindred spirits is going through the same thing! Love ya!
