I don’t know why but lately? Blogging is SO HARD. I look back at years ago when every single day I had something at least remotely interesting or funny to write. Lately? Nada. It’s frustrating. I have about fifty posts that I started but never finished because even I knew they were boring. Hell, this post is going to be boring. I’ve totally lost my mojo.
One would think with the baby on the way and life changing SO MUCH for me that I might find interesting things to do which would lead to interesting things to say. One would be wrong.
I just don’t think people are all that interested in my announcing gleefully that the puppy has slept through the night the last three nights! Or that he is really figuring this potty training thing out! And he’s starting to hump! Also, my stomach is getting huge! And a bit hurty! And despite the puppy sleeping through the night, I sure don’t! And I figured out a cleaning schedule for the house that (for the most part) works for me and keeps the house somewhat presentable!
Boring, boring, blah, blah, blah.
The worst part is that I really think it will just continue to get worse. I have the other blog to talk about all things baby so I can keep things separate and not start inundating you with stories of cloth vs. disposable diapers and diaper rash remedies and breast feeding. Not that those things are boring, just that they’re not really applicable to the type of blog I want this to be. If it’s even really a blog at all anymore. Sigh.
And now I think I sound like I’m complaining. I swear I’m not.
Truly, life is awesome. I love this little puppy with all my heart even when he’s making me crazy. He is so cute and made life around here so much fun. Matt and I hardly watch TV anymore and spend a ton of time playing with him and talking while we take him on walks. We are saving so much money because we eat out so rarely and try not to go out other places too much while he’s still a puppy and has a hard time being alone - this is obviously good training for when our little man arrives. I don’t think we ever would have gotten a dog while we were both working full time so that’s a win for the unemployment column. We both have said out loud more than once that we can’t imagine life without Watson now that he’s here.
The pregnancy going so well and has been so easy 99.9% of the time. I could not feel more lucky or more blessed to have this be the way that my body chooses to behave while pregnant. My minor aches and pains and sleep issues are nothing compared to the horror stories I’ve heard or seen in person with some of my friends. I count my blessings every day that I am able to do pretty much anything I want. I just sprinkle in a couple of naps here and there. The nursery and supplies are coming along splendidly if I could only choose a wall color. Good thing I have three months and some sort of a plan. Let the nesting begin!
My husband is amazing and works his can off every day to make sure that life continues to be comfortable for our little growing family. Being home during the day has made me treasure the time that he’s home and we can hang out. He was sick yesterday and I was almost excited because it meant I got to see him more.
We have decided against a Babymoon, just because we’re trying to pay off Matt’s truck by the end of the year and have no car payments. We have money stashed away for a vacation still but we’d rather use that in a year or so when we can do what we really want, which is go to Greece. Luckily we have three willing babysitters in our Mom’s and should be able to pull this off within a year and a half or so, rather than waiting until this kid is in high school or something.
I’m not sure what else to say. I’ve covered the four VERY exciting things that are going on in my life right now. You are all so stimulated. I can tell. You can thank me later.
