Oh man... I feel like I'm being flung back into the first trimester. It's hit me all of a sudden that I am just plain exhausted! No matter how much sleep I get at night, I'm painfully tired the next morning and struggle to peel myself out of bed when the alarm goes off. I even broke down and took a nap today after I got Carter to bed. I am NOT someone that likes to nap... I feel it's such a waste of time and I usually feel stressed if I even try to rest for very long because my "to do" list is running like crazy in my mind.. all of the things I'm NOT doing because I'm being a slug. But, today, I told my head to shove it.. I had to sleep! I felt no better after waking up 40 MINUTES LATER! (that's quite a nap to me!) Thankfully my mood is still really upbeat and happy even though I'm walking around holding my eyelids open. I had a few weeks of plain moodiness a while back.. I was no fun to be around and I didn't even like myself most of the time! lol

To add to my "things I normally don't do but am doing now" list... I think, for the first time ever, I'm going to quit something. We signed Madison up for Tball this year for the sole reason that Clayton was going to sign up to be her assistant coach and we could work it around our schedules so it wouldn't all fall upon my shoulders. Well, they had too many ppl sign up and Clayton and the guy he wanted to coach with weren't needed... we had a meeting yesterday with our team to get a list of rules and a list of things we still had to buy (quite a list!!) and i left nearly in tears. I called Clayton and told him that I am NOT doing Tball this year. I don't care if we already paid for it, I don't care how it looks for me to quit, I cannot handle it. The schedule set up for practises was going to kill me and it completely overlaps with our current dance schedule. (which I could make an entire new post about.. but won't.. let's just say we will not be doing dance next yr!) So I'm going to try to convince Clayton to make the call to the coach to say "we quit" because I can barely stand to admit it.. I am not a quitter. I feel like I should be able to handle this.. but it is supposed to be fun and I can tell already it will be much more stressful than fun! (As Suzanne said to me today when I called to talk to her about all of this 'stuff', "Who is this for? If Madison doesn't even care and you don't want to do it... then why do it?") Such wisdom from a friend! She's so right! So... April 28th is our dance recital and after that my plan is to enjoy family time now before Samuel makes his big debut. I don't need anything additional right now! So there, I admit it... I became a quitter!

ata girl, mandy! that girl has plenty of time to decide what she likes and become a part of it....many families spend way too much time running around and way too little time being a family. we've been that family from time to time. i constantly have to re-evaluate and make sure we're home enough.

Well originally,we had decided to stay away from that scene this year,but after many pleas from Kyla-here we go again.LOL.It is okay to be tired,you are pg and have two others to look after....there is absolutely nothing wrong at all-with being tired.:):):)

Oh, I remember when I felt like that, like it was the 1st trimester again. Except I think it was worse because I had so much more weight to carry around. I feel for ya!

Don't worry about quitting. Suzanne gave you great advice. Just enjoy the time you have left being pg and get rested up!

hee, hee, hee!

(no, that's not the sound of giggling from a woman that's just been there.. i wouldn't ever be that insensitive ;) )

hang in there - it'll all be better in a couple of months!!

and we all definitely KNOW you are not a quitter.

Good luck with the next 9 weeks. Don't push yourself or Madison. Like Brandy says she has plenty of time to decide.
