Eleven hours. That's how long I slept last night. Eleven hours!! As you know, I've been totally exhausted lately. This stage of pregnancy has zapped every ounce of energy I have, so I was grateful for a chance to get as much sleep as I needed.
Pregnancy has also made my brain pretty much useless. If something is not in writing, then I'll forget and I regularly use the wrong words when talking to people. The kids are constantly laughing at the ridiculous things I say. I can't blame them, because sometimes the stuff that comes out of my mouth is pretty funny.
Pregnancy has also wracked my thoughts and emotions. I was dealing with some stuff before I was pregnant, but I think that hormones have pushed me over the edge. I haven't blogged in a week, partly because of a lack of energy or things to talk about, but largely because I've been an emotional wreck and feeling incredibly overwhelmed and discouraged about various things. My head's just not in a good place these days and I don't feel super chatty. My mantra has become "fake it til you make it", which is why you'll see me smiling when I'm out in public, but, honestly, life's not a lot of fun for me right now.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and let you all know I'm alive. I'm rational enough to realize this is just a season and it will pass, but in the meantime I just don't have a lot to give. I love blogging, though, so I'll get back in the swing of things eventually. I promise.
