Maternity Break


Well, My due date is less than a week away (july 28). So basically I could go at anytime 🙂 eeeeeep! As I sit here and write that, I am thinking “How did we get here already?”

So over the last few weeks, I have been getting super tired yet super motivated to do things… it’s truly a bad combo. you would think that I would be happy to get stuff done…however being so tired it’s super frustrating.

Because of being exhausted, I became sad that I wasn’t able to complete home school all the way up to where I wanted to end. We just ended at the farm unit and now we are on vacation. I am just not motivated to do it anymore, and I feel bad, because my son totally misses it. I do however have everything ready for me to plan next years themes and lessons. I am excited about that I am hoping to get that done right after the baby comes. I want to start back up around the end of August, and if that doesn’t happen than at least by Labor Day.

Since the summer heat has fully moved into our area, it is truly hard for me to  be outside for long periods of time. The poor kids are getting squirly… I feel so bad. I also feel like a bad mom because we have been watching a lot of TV. I really try not to watch it that much…I have been coming up the indoor games, but man they get bored with that quickly. I have also tried to get outside earlier in the morning and stay in the shade to do sidewalk chalk or let them kick a ball around, but the humidity here is terrible right now…So I have had to talk myself into realizing that this is only temporary and everyone goes through this…especially at 9 months pregnant.  

My hubby and I are now just making sure that all our loose ends (like child care, dinners, and cleaning) are all tied up before baby girl decides to make her appearance. Since I’m at ticking time-bomb stage, we are wondering if I will go early or if I will follow my normal and be late. Who knows?!

The only thing that we both know is we are super excited to meet our baby girl!

I am unsure of how long I will take a break from blogging. I mean really it’s been a few weeks already… I really need to get better at this!

I will let everyone know when the baby arrives!

Till Next Time! 🙂

PS. If I find time I will maybe do an update post!
