So Here's My Life

The things we make,
the food we eat and
the shenanigans in between.

At the moment, I am very, very, very tired. I've had a full schedule for the last three or four days...it may have been longer, but I can't remember that far back. The house has fallen apart completely. I have a stock pile of dishes and laundry that need to be worked on, but somehow I can't seem to muster up enough energy to tackle them. I think I'd rather take a nap...or write a blog....or write a blog and then take a nap.

These days pregnancy is going ok...I guess. But you know what? I'm going to be honest here. I'm not a huge fan of pregnancy. I'm just not. I feel so restricted and confined. I'm fatigued. I have to monitor my asthma carefully (asthma and pregnancy don't go well together). I am constantly battling headaches (which I've figured out how to prevent but not get rid of them once I've gotten one). And it's painful too! My ribcage is KILLING me these days! Arg! Somedays I just want this child to get out of me (but of course fully developed and healthy).

Somehow people seem to think that Joel and I accidentally made this baby. (we did not) We always get comments like, "Enjoy your last moments before the baby comes!" or "Do everything now that you can't do with a baby" or "Make sure you go to lots of movies before the baby is born" and "Everything changes after the baby comes!"

You know what I have to say about all this?
1) Why the heck do you think that we waited four years to start a family??? Because we wanted to enjoy our time together before we had children. We were never in any hurry to start a family, because we wanted to do as much as we could before we started a family. We've already done all that stuff that we wanted to do before we had children.
2) Duh! Of course everything changes after the baby come! Once again, that is why we waited so long to have kids!

I think everyone is really worried about us being pregnant, because we always get comments about this baby being unplanned. Totally false, but they seem to think otherwise. It's probably because when people would ask us when we were planning on starting a family, we would always tell them something like, "Oh, someday." But that was to prevent people from getting too nosy and asking at the time that we started working towards a family, if we were pregnant yet. Privacy. So I guess because of that, they assumed the opposite. Oh well.

It kind of surprises me that people are still acting like this snuck up on you two. People are so silly sometimes, they probably don't intend to offend they are just clueless -

i agree. i don't think that they are really meaning to offend me, they just aren't thinking about how things sound when they say them to us.

honestly, i just need to get over what people say and ignore them. but it's not always easy.
