Can you believe it is May already? Today I am linking up with Farley from Oh’Boy 4th Grade and her awesome, monthly linky.
Let’s break it down:
LISTENING: Since I get my daughter ready Monday- Friday, my husband has weekend duty which means I get to sleep in (until 7:30-gasp-). I can no longer sleep in, I think I lost that ability when I became a mama, and it’s especially hard right now because I am 8.5 months preggers, so I am up and down all night. This morning, while I was “sleeping in” I was listening to my husband and daughter chit chat and it melted my heart!
LOVING: Now don’t get me wrong, I love, love, LOVE my job…but I am soooo ready for this school year to be over, again probably a side effect of being 8.5 months pregnant! Only 20 more days!
THINKING/WANTING: Summer is going to be busy because we will be turning from a family of 3 to a family of 4. I am lucky that my husband is a teacher too, so I will have him with me navigating how to have a newborn and a 2 year old…. BUT my husband got a tutoring job this summer that will take him out of the house 4 hours a day M-F. I am lucky my in-laws live close by! I am so excited to meet my little boy. I can’t imagine the amount of love I will feel when I have him in my arms and I can’t wait for my little girl to be a big sister.
NEEDING: I am soooo tired when I get home from work that I have been neglecting my blog. I feel horribly about it and I know that I need to get back in the rhythm of it again. I have sooo many photos on my phone that I never uploaded and shared… and posting them now might be strange… I don’t know. Have any of you bloggers out there been in this same situation…. you’ve taken a mini-blog vacation and now you want to get back into the blogging world but you feel apprehensive… perhaps I am just over thinking it….
SUMMER BUCKET LIST:
-Have a baby (wish I could flash forward the labor and delivery part!)
– Take some mini, local vacations. Being in Southern California, there are a lot of places to go and visit for a couple of days or so that aren’t too far away. I just really want to swim, enjoy a margarita, sleep in, eat some good food and relax….
-Lose baby weight: I am one of those pregnant ladies that you see at the gym working out at 8 months… I do elicit some interesting looks when I walk in the doors with a HUGE belly ready to work out. I told my husband to be ready for be to be a WORK OUT FIEND once baby Eli is born and I am cleared to exercise. I am determined to drop the weight I gained before my sister in laws wedding this November and I know I can do it!
Thanks for reading my BABY CENTRIC Currently…. I have baby brain.
