I'm All Fooled Out
You will find no April Fooling here, folks. It seems Google has done enough of that for everyone today. No, all you'll find at mine olde blog is a sincere, "Holy crap. I'm tired." I've been running hard my entire pregnancy, and I think it's finally catching up with me. I feel quite a bit like Daisy does in that pic.
I've been planning a gargantuan programs-wide meeting at work for the last month or so, and it all came to fruition yesterday. We had about 30 guests who came from off-campus, not to mention MANY faculty and staff. We met up, we ate, we toured, we broke out into individual meetings, and we met some more. For most of that time I was running 'round trying to make sure everything was going smoothly, putting out fires where I could, and generally keeping a smile on my face while it felt like my uterus might explode. After all was underway, my boss said, "OK, you can have your first contraction now." Too late! Ha! I started that last week, so there.
While Chuck had pool last night, I stayed home and rested on the couch. The kids have developed a habit of oversleeping before school, so they went to bed at a scandalously early 8:00, and I had the TV/downstairs all to myself. Heavenly! You cannot imagine how heavenly.
Alas, today I'm still dragging. My brain and thigh fog is so significant I decided to hide myself in a classroom in a corner of the building and not come out until I can remember my own name and want to move again.
Pretty uneventful post, and a whiney one at that, but it's all I really have to say. I have much grading to do before my final ultrasound on Monday. I'm so ready to not be pregnant anymore. I want to meet my little man and start this adventure. And I'm ready for my first significant time off work in about 7 years.
Now I'm going to take a nap in the break room. I dare anyone to try and stop me!
