One of those days....

I'm having one of those days - you know where you are tired, mentally exhausted, whiny, and really need a nap.

Ok, maybe grown adults don't normally have days that look identical to those of an overstimulated two year old.  But, today, I'm having one of those days.

I woke up early (before 7am - both days this weekend - not my idea of fun) after getting up a one too many times last night due to being so uncomfortable I simply couldn't sleep.

In attempts to cheer me up, Alex made me a big breakfast - bacon, eggs, homemade biscuits - the works.  It was so good.  Except for the fact that I couldn't eat but a few bites because my lovely child is sitting so high up.  She is lay transverse and her entire body is pretty much above my belly button - it is miserable.

My stomach is likely in my esophagus at this point and it is NOT fun at all.

After breakfast we took the dogs for a walk.  It wasn't even 8:30 yet it was so hot I could barely move.  I'm sure my neighbors got a kick out of watching the pregnant woman waddle down the street at snails pace.  I looked pathetic and felt even worse.

By the time we got home I was already over the day.  I attempted to make a grocery list and come up with things to cook this week.  I failed at that too.

Just as I was about to leave for the grocery (and have a major whiny fit like a toddler), Alex told me to just turn off all the lights, go get comfy on the couch, and take a nice long nap.

It was exactly what I needed.  I slept for about 2 hours - and thankfully the dogs cooperated and slept with me.

I'm not sure if it is the fact that I am 7 months pregnant, the unbearable heat, my lack of sleep, or a combination of all three but I struggling these days.

After my nap I woke up feeling like a (semi) new woman, tackled the grocery, and am now about to make some homemade gumbo - I need comfort food on a day like today!

Here's to hoping that tomorrow is better and these toddler like days are few and far between!
