For the past few months, I have felt like a lazy, unmotivated grouch. My midwife suggested that maybe it was Seasonal Affective Disorder, but I blew that off, blaming those pesky pregnancy hormones instead. Now I'm wondering if maybe she wasn't correct, because I have been feeling SO much better. Either the hormones are finally giving me a break, or the sunshine really is making a difference. Whichever it is, I can't believe how wonderful it is to want to DO things again! Instead of basic stuff like keeping up with the laundry and dishes seeming like insurmountable chores, suddenly I have so much energy and now it's more like Yay! I get to organize the basement! and Yay! Let's bake bread! and Yay! I should sew new curtains for every room in the house!
Here are some great things about today:
Lunch - yummy pesto, tomato, and mozzarella sandwiches. This week I bought really good mozzarella instead of the regular old stuff and it is SO delicious! We made pizza with it last night and these sandwiches today and I am hooked.
Banana-Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins. Mmmmmm. I subbed whole wheat pastry flour for the regular flour and they were delicious!
This guy. He is always so sweet and smiley.
One of his favorite things to do right now is open a drawer, throw it's contents on the floor, and climb inside. His other favorite thing to do is race back to the bedroom and shove as much dog food in his mouth as he possibly can before I come after him and put a stop to all the fun.
Steve was feeling sick tonight and Noah was (amazingly) asleep, so Emma and I dyed the eggs alone. While I would have liked to do it as a family like we usually do, it was nice for Emma and I to be able to do something special with just the two of us.
