Random, random, but this is what is on my mind tonight. Nothing significant enough to really merit it's own post, but all together represents the tangled mess that is floating around in my head...
-Addison has been ill today....pretty much just blowing out snot every which way and a slight fever. Thankfully, it is the first time she has been sick all winter. We stayed in, sadly missing the last day of Daddy's flower show. We didn't do therapy but snuggled on the couch eating cheez-its together and French toast. Turns out Addison's appetite returns as soon as some maple syrup is drizzled on her food. Interesting.
-I'm looking at my calendar for March and I just want to wish it all way...so many appointments and extra rehearsals. Full calendar= overwhelmed Mama.
-While Addison slept almost all day, I took the opportunity to lay around and sleep as well. I think I overdid it a bit last week, which is scary because it is a light week according to what is coming up in the next few weeks. Really hoping that this time around the second trimester really is a magical time full of energy.
-I wish I was better at things such as writing thank you notes and sending sweet cards in the mail. I waste a lot of guilt thinking about how horrible I am at these things...why don't I just take that time to overcome this??? (Please tell me that I'm not the only one who struggles with this)
-As I have been reading new authors and seeking to improve my writing style (don't hold this post as an example, please), I have noticed that I no longer like a lot of my old favorite authors. Didn't see that one coming.
-It has been snowing pretty hard all day. Lately, I have been imagining taking a tropical vacation to somewhere with white sand and aqua blue water and drinking fruity smoothies on the beach while reading some more new authors. I know this won't happen anytime soon, but a girl can dream.....the March snowstorm necessitates it.
-I would like a grilled chicken sandwich from McDonalds like right now. This worries me as I had this craving on the way home from school on Friday, stopped and obliged it and then decorated their parking lot with said sandwich. It tasted much better going down. Bad craving. I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant. Could I get a break please?
-While I was laying around today, I came up with all kinds of new "cheap" fixes for my house. Hmmmm, maybe it's a good thing that I'm going to be busy for a while or else I would spend us into bankruptcy. (They are good ideas, I promise)
-This week I am finally doing my Mother-in-law's birthday dinner. Her birthday was in January...I know I am the worst daughter in law in the world. It's been hard to plan more than one day at a time these past months, but I have hopeful feelings for this week. (Mother, if you're reading this, that means that I will finally get your gift in the mail as well) Wow, I have so much to feel guilty about.
-This is a super weird post for me to write, but if you have followed my blog for any length of time, do I really have a standard post? I am in a bit of a funk, excited about a day of writing tomorrow and hopefully having Draft 2 of my book ready to submit to my editor by Thursday.
Here's hoping that Addison sleeps well tonight after sleeping pretty much all day...and a day tomorrow full of inspired writing...with a maid appearing as if out of nowhere to clean my house (yet another dream. sigh)
