nothing to say

A few things have been going on around here other than just the baby. In fact, most days everything to do with Gooseberry seems to just stay quiet. Every now and then the Hubs and I will talk about how crazy it is that we are actually having a baby, about how in two months our lives will be forever changed, about how we need to live it up right now and do this or that... But, in general, we go to our places of work, come home, eat a somewhat nutritious meal (somewhat being the key word :), watch a show together, and go to bed. Pretty exciting stuff let me tell you.

School is really what is on my mind these days. Probably because I spend the majority of my days at school, with my kids, trying to figure out what I can do to help that student with the F bring his grade up, or what I can do to help that student who has suddenly started acting out how to get his act together and clam down in my classroom. Thinking about how I am going to fit in all the material I need to by Christmas break and still have time to review and give the final. Thinking about all of the papers and projects that are waiting me to grade them. Thinking about how to breathe and maintain my sanity during it all.

Then once I get home I feel like doing absolutely nothing, and for the most part, I do absolutely nothing. I let dishes stack up more than I ever have before. I let laundry go unfolded for much longer than I ever have before. I don't even do the laundry until myself or the Hubs have run out of clean clothes (which isn't very long considering my wardrobe is a lot more limited these days than it has been in the past). The awful part about it all is that I just don't care. That's just not my personality. I hate messes and can't function well when surrounded by messes. These days.... eh. What's a little pile of dishes? Terrible, I tell you! 

I suppose there really is no point to this other than for me to ramble on a little bit. But sometimes, I just need to ramble. I'm sure there will be more to come as soon I will have all the time in the world (that's right, Christmas Break). 

Anyhow. I will go to bed now and spare you from more rambling. For tonight. 

I hope you all had a fantastic Wednesday!

Being pregnant sometimes takse more out of you than you would think. It's okay to let yourself off the hook sometimes and let the dishes pile up. Enjoy your evenings and don't worry too much about what home "should" look like. Blessings!
