It's Back!!

For those of you that remember,my first trimester was anything but a blissful event! Between the nausea,exhaustion, and crazy acne that took over my face, all I wanted to do was lay on the couch day in and day out!! In the last week or so, I have discovered that my exhaustion has made a wonderful return to the stage, along with some of that glorious nausea. Luckily, my doctor was able to pinpoint my nausea to my crazy acid reflux I developed over the Christmas holiday!! I am now on "Nexium" daily, and more sickness, or horrible heartburn!!!

Unluckily...I have ZERO energy!!! All I want to do is lay on the couch and sleep...or rather all I feel like doing!! I feel horrible because the last few days it's been a beautiful 65 and sunny outside. I have this gorgeous little cockerspaniel staring out the back door, just wishing to go running. Her mommy, however, can barely get the energy to take her our to potty, much less to the dog park. (Note to self: get our fence put up ASAP) Hopefully the fence will not only provide her the opportunity to be outside as ofen as she wants, but with Little Lena I won't have to take her out and walk her around for 20 minutes at a time while she does "her business".

The thing that has gotten me sooo irritated about this exhaustion thing is that when I do feel like getting up...I need to clean!! Ugh....keeping a house is a never ending cycle, and unless you've ever been a stay at home (worker) it's hard to understand the frustration!!! Sure, we know that the house is inevitably going to get dirty again, but couldn't it keep it's shine for oh....atleast an hour!! I can't tell you the "arguments" that have come from Josh bringing home a bag full of dirty dishes and coffee cups and just throwing them in the sick or laying them on the counter!! It frustrates me to no absolute end....esp when the dishwasher is a foot away!

Sorry...that was a complete ramble off track!! Back to my old symptoms, making their third trimester debut. As we speak it is 1:47 in the afternoon and I am still in my leggings and tshirt from last night, and this horrible messiness on top of my head that we will, for lack of better term, call hair. I have folded the blankets I brought down about 6 this morning, and put them back in the closet, but have yet to do much in the way of productiveness. It's not even that I don't feel motivated. I really do want to clean my house, it's just that the second I stand up, I am ready for a nap!! **sigh**

It might not bother me so much if I wasn't getting enough sleep. Last night Allie and I went to bed at 9. And to my suprise I was only up twice to flip and pee!! So, around 6 this morning I felt refreshed and ready to go. I had a donut, glass of milk, put together some Mary Kay orders, and watched a bit of tv. Around 9 it was nap time. I slept until about 1030. At that time I got up and had a bowl of cereal and watched a bit more tv. I haven't napped since, but besides food...I haven't ventured much away from the confines of my sofa. (note: I am trying to eat less more often. I have noticed that there isn't much room left in my tummy for food, between all the other stuff!!)

Ok, so now that the rant is over, I am going to attempt to fold and put up our laundry! I have to get the house in order if we are going to have a lawyer over tonight. We are filling out our will...depressing, but necessary!! Happy Blogging!
